Offshore Fishing in Venice in Southeast Louisiana
Ever since the passage of the 2006 Magnuson-Stevens Reauthorization Act, we offshore recreational fishermen have been left holding the dirty end of the stick. The ridiculous mismanagement of the Gulf Red Snapper is just one of many examples.

But there is a ray of hope on the horizon. The House Natural Resources Committee has passed HR4742 Flexibility In Fishing bill and it awaits a floor.... Read More

After long thought and upon the advice of several here on this forum, I have decided to go into the lure-manufacturing business.

My line of Catch-O-Matic bottom-jigging lures will be announced in a press release tomorrow but I thought I would give my fellow forum members a sneak preview.

Extensive field testing has proven the bottom-most lure to have the tastiest appeal to it's target.... Read More

In a kayak-fishing tournament, The Worlds First Sheepshead Tournament will be held in Slidell on Sunday February 17.

Deer Hunting in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
I have a sealed lead-acid 12v deerfeeder battery. Can I get away with using a regular car battery charger to charge it? Or will it blow up in a perfect Redneck Moment - 'hey y'all, watch this!'

It has several settings available, including trickle charge.

Any recommendations?

Should I give the OV GLOVE as a fish-gripping Christmas gift?

Or will I burn in hell with an eternity of bad fishing karma?

It's a fishin' tradition in my family to fish Thanksgiving morning and Christmas Eve.

I lucked out and have five days off Saturday thru Wednesday so I'm fixin' to go fishing as many of those days as possible.

I reckon tomorrow looks like The Trestles so I can dig out some Sheepshead.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah & Happy New Year,

It was Killax & Chillax at the Trestlax.

The fishin' at the Trestles was good - I fished it Thursday morning, Friday and Sunday. Each day I got plenty of Sheepshead plus a few Spackled Trout, a Baby Bull Red and puppy drums. On Friday and Sunday I even caught a couple Flounder. Total number of Cajun Grand Slams was two on Friday and one on Sunday. Woo-hoo!

Caught everything on dropshot.... Read More

As president of the club, here is an email I sent to the members of the 100 Fathom Fishing Club regarding today's election:

100FFC Members - Even though our club has a policy of no political or religious discussions, during this presidential election we must reflect on the last four years of the Obama Administration and what it has done to offshore recreational fishing in US waters.

  • Three-Fifths Of Cajun Grand Slam
  • Line Squall
Managed to pick off a few nice fish before that nasty line squall blew thru for 11am.

One 22 inch Sheepshead, two 24 inch Redfish were the top billing but also got 2 more Sheepshead and 2 Puppie Drum.

Drive south on Hwy 11 until just before the bridge. Basically, pull over on the right side just after the last elevated camp before the bridge. Thats where Tite's used to be. There's a backdown ramp but most of us kayak fishermen launch off the narrow dock just to the north of the ramp.

Hey, anybody know if Pelican Pointe Marina's bait shed & backdown ramp are completed and opened yet?

Last time I stopped back by was in the Fall and the shed and tanks looked complete & plumbed. The backdown ramp still needed pouring - I know they were waiting on permitting for that.

I'm fixing to go fishing on Friday and Saturday. After all the rain this week and terrible results.... Read More

I'm fixin' to stop back by to the Trestles/ Hwy 11 northshore on Saturday for some fillets from Flappy the Flounder.

Now that the front has passed and the water has glassed, does anybody have any Flounder reports?

Thanks,

Kayak Fishing in The Rigolets / Lake Catherine in Southeast Louisiana
I've been driving the extra distance lately to get down to Campo's in Shell Beach and avoid the dirty water. But has anybody been fishing the Rigolets area with any luck? Specifically Ft Pike, Lake Catherine, Sawmill Pass, Geohagan's, etc?

I'd love to catch a Cajun Slam of redfish, flounder and speck.
