There is a constant attempt by some piece-of-filth to SCAM readers of Louisiana Sportsman's online classifieds. Almost daily, this same SCAM artist posts a pair of ATV's on a trailer with a ridiculously low price. There should be some way to TRACK the IP address of this SCAMMER.
Here's the SCAM:

I had the opportunity to take another LA Sportsman reader fishing this past Saturday after only exchanging information here on LA Sportsman forum. I took a young man who was eager to learn how to catch more fish and had a great day of fishing.
Even though the Basin is experiencing a slight rise and not ideal conditions of two weeks ago, we were able to catch 73 with mixed bunch of huge.... Read More
Planning a trip Saturday to the Basin in the Bayou Pigeon area...can't wait; there will be cooler temperatures forecasted to be around 60 degrees Saturday morning with a FULL moon for this coming Monday. The bream and goggle-eye should be going back into their spawning beds and the sac-a-lait should be more aggressively biting with the cooler temperatures.
Hope to wet a hook and snag my first.... Read More
I had been hearing the reports coming from the Atchafalaya Basin but have been unable to go fishing for some time. That changed Sunday. My wife and I took the boat out to Bayou Pigeon. It was on!!! We fished for goggle-eye and bream. I fished with a 1/32 oz black Slater's jig while my wife fished with crickets. Those big goggle-eye were hammering everything put in front of them. You could....

I've made two trips to the Atchafalaya Basin to fish in the Bayou Pigeon area the last two weekends. Caught plenty of sacalait, goggle-eye, bream, bass and catfish on jigs. Threw back a lot of bass that were undersized.
I really enjoyed my time out on the water. But one thing that I saw that I did not like were groups of hunters in boats idling around with loaded guns shooting squirrels from.... Read More
I have made a couple of fishing trips to the Atchafalaya Basin; previously to Bayou Pigeon area and today to Adams Landing, Shell Cuts and Flat Lake.
The Atchafalaya Basin is becoming inundated with water hyacinths, hydrilla and duck moss. Many areas are now un-fishable as you can't get to the large cypress stumps/trees along the edges of the various waterways. In fact, the Shell Cuts are now.... Read More
Looking to go to the Lower Atchafalaya Basin this weekend to catch some gnarly goggle-eye. If you bass fishermen have been pestered with goggle-eye hitting your artificial bass lures, I have a solution for you. Just send me a private response with the rough location and I'll come and do my best to relieve you of your problem.
Have typically fished in the Bayou Pigeon area around Catfish.... Read More
My wife and I have enjoyed two weekend trips to Lake Okhissa in Franklin County, Mississippi. The lake level has risen approximately two feet from this time last year. We found huge bream next to submerged pine trees or briars in four to six feet of water. You have to look close to find the submerged pine trees and briars as these are now just below the surface; but.... Read More
I received an email today from a buddy of mine containing information on a Monster 30 Point Buck...supposedly killed in Dalton, Wisconsin. The email read as follows: Shot by an Amish boy with hand made long bow:
This buck was taken by a 14 year old Amish boy near Dalton WI. He used a hand made long bow and made the killing shot by stalking the huge buck using corn shocks for cover. The.... Read More
I went up to Lake Okhissa in Franklin County, Mississippi on Saturday. We met one of my co-workers and his wife for the Championship of the Civilized World Bream Fishing Tournament (i.e. bragging rights). We caught some monster sized bream that doubled our fiberglass poles almost to the breaking point. I have caught nice bream in the Atchafalaya Basin...but these bream were H-U-G-E!!! We didn't....

I purchased a used boat with a Johnson 50 HP motor. I knew that the motor needed some work when I bought it. I took my motor to Nolan's Outboard in Zachary and had the motor rebuilt...top to bottom, including the water pump. I was told to run my newly rebuilt motor at half throttle until it was broke in. When I took my boat out in the basin, the temperature alarm went off even though water was.... Read More

The high water levels in the Mississippi River have created havoc on the Atchafalaya Basin. With the continued heavy rains and flooding throughout the upper central part of the US, it would appear that the Mississippi River is rising AGAIN with at least another 3' to 4' rise over the next two weeks. And that's based upon the current rainfall level. I hear that the USACE must divert 30% of the.... Read More
Bopotomus Sighting In Natchez
Several years back, I took a large group from Baton Rouge camping at the Natchez State Park. There were 52 people; men, women, kids of all ages. We went out to the Natchez Trace and waded Coles Creek looking for Indian Clay. Then we went to Emerald Mound where I told all of the kids the Legend of Bopotomus...a large ape like creature that would sneak into Indian.... Read More
This report is not about Henderson Lake...just had to choose a Region in order to Post. I simply chose the closest point with the most interest. Please read below:
My wife, step-daughter and I took the boat out on Memorial Day, Monday, May 26th to Spanish Lake and Alligator Bayou. We launched off of Hwy 74 between Dutchtown and St. Gabriel. Braud's Bayou, Bayou Paul, Alligator Bayou and.... Read More
My wife and I went down to the Atchafalaya Spillway on Saturday, June 23rd. The water has fallen quite a bit over the last few weeks and we wanted to see how the bream, google-eye and sacalait were biting. We put in at Pigeon Landing and went to our favorite honey-hole. We ended up with 97 fish, including 66 bream, 12 catfish, 2 sacalait and the rest were Goggle-Eye.
