Had a good 4th of July weekend on Grand Isle. The weekend started off a little slow for us but the surf fishing on Sunday made up for it.
Fished the Chenier side of the bridge on Thursday night without any luck at all except white trout. We had live shrimp too but the specks wouldn't touch them. Hit Elmer's after daylight and picked up a few trout in the a.m. and a few small trout.... Read More
There is an owl in the driveway of my work that appears to have been hit by a vehicle, and I need to know if there is anyone out there that rehabs & takes care of injured birds. It is still alive but can not fly or walk. We have contacted the Wildlife & Fisheries but all they did was give us contact info for two people, neither of which could take the bird.
Has anybody had any luck catching bass around Manchac lately? I have been getting skunked flipping soft plastics along the banks and canals. That normally works but I have not even had many bites the last trip or two.
Or, instead of the Hwy 51 area does anyone have any advice for any of the rivers that flow into Maurepas? We are probably going to check out one of the rivers tomorrow but.... Read More
Anybody know what the water clarity is looking like on Lake Verret? We are likely heading down there this weekend and would really appreciate a heads up on what to expect. Plan to try the Grand Bayou & Crackerhead areas for some sacs & bass. If anyone has any information or tips we would greatly appreciate it.
Went to the camp this weekend and found that we are in full rut in the Tylertown area. Almost hit a nice 8 pt on my way to the camp & saw 2 other 8 pts while hunting. All had swollen necks & looked like they had one thing on their mind! Saw both bucks between 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. Scrapes everywhere and even saw a doe working a scrape while in the stand. So, just a little advice to.... Read More
Anybody know if Lake Verret or the Spillway is too muddy from the past few days rain? I know it will probably be raining tomorrow but we may still give it a try if the water is clear enough to fish. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Did a little surf fishing in Grand Isle this weekend. Hit Elmers Island Saturday morning with live shrimp and caught 1 hardhead. That was it. I had two guys on each side of me, one side was fishing live finger mullet and the others were fishing with minnows, and each caught near their limit of 2-4lb trout. They just did not want shrimp this weekend and I'm sure it was b/c there were no.... Read More
Fished out of Fourchon this weekend and had a tough time with the wind. The gulf was out of the question, so we decided to try a few spots inshore with little luck.
Saturday we managed a handfull of reds, two specks and a sheephead. Sunday was a bit calmer and found 20 or so specks in Timbalier Bay. We never could get on a good bite, but caught a few fish, got some good sun and put away.... Read More
Went down to Shell Beach this weekend mainly just to get away for the weekend but did end up finding a few fish. We weren't fishing very hard and only a couple of hours at a time, but ended up with 6 reds and 8 trout. Most of the fish were caught on the bottom at the dam. Market shrimp and gulps were what they wanted. Only caught one fish that had to be measured with 4 of the reds going 24+.... Read More
We are trying to decide which side of the levee to choose, either the spillway side or Verret side, and are hoping someone can let us know how the water level and clarity is looking on either side.
Last weekend the water was lower than we have seen in a long time in Verret and was muddy all over too. We are trying to do a little bass and sac fishing and are hoping not to get skunked again.... Read More
I just got an email from a buddy of mine and I thought ya'll might find it interesting. I don't know how to embed a video so copy and paste the link. I would like to hear your thoughts and opinions on this too.
These guys work for CW Roberts, big contractor in Walton County , Florida .
They have just received contract to do the “HAY THING” for all the 26 miles of Walton County,.... Read More
Simple Question: If you were going to fish Lake Verret this weekend which end of the lake would you fish? We are trying to decide between North or South and would like some input from any of you that have been out there lately. Thanks in advance.
Launched at Bayou Corne Saturday mid-morning and fished the Crackerhead canal system for the first time. It started off pretty slow but picked up a couple of hours before dark. I spent most of the day trying to find some sac-a-lait but didn't have much luck. My father and I both pulled out the bass poles mid afternoon and went to work. We ended the day with 15 bass, 2 sacs, 1 bream, 1.... Read More
Me and a buddy of mine are heading to Millers Saturday to try our luck, and I know many of you know this area very well and are willing to help me out. Neither of us have ever been there, so I am hoping someone could give me a quick run-down of the lake. I am not looking for anyone's secret spots or honey holes, just really N,S,E,W guidance on what types of structure are at what parts of the.... Read More
I need some advice from all of you sac-a-lait experts, not on spots or locations, but on technique. I have caught a few sacs here and there over the years but mainly on crickets and worms while bream fishing, and a few on beetle spins once I have found a spot holding a few fish.
I have never actually made a trip geared up and targeting sac-a-lait, but I plan to dedicate this spring/summer to.... Read More
Put in at Bayou Corne Sunday to try our luck with not much success. We only fished from around 11:30-3:30 with just one bass to show for it. We stopped at a few of the dead end canals between Bayou Corne and Lake Verret and the water was pretty muddy everywhere we stopped except one pipeline canal, which is where we caught our one fish and had several other bites.
My father and I are thinking about heading to the North End of Lake Verret Saturday and would like to know if anyone has had any luck there lately. Saw in the paper that the sacs have been biting pretty good, but want to hear what you all have been seeing. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
