Freshwater Fishing in Louisiana
For many years we have experienced relatively mild winters. Invasive aquatic growth like hyacinths returned each spring with a vengence.

In my opinion, recent cold weather with several days below freezing and actual freezing precipitation were needed to have a significant impact on invasive aquatic plants. Perhaps enough impact to clear areas that were essentially impassable or.... Read More

With reported record snowfall across the upper Mississippi watershed (some as much as TRIPLE amount of snowfall), this doesn't bode well with upcoming spring thaw flooding. The US Army Corps of Engineers likes to 'experiment' with 'controlling' the Lower Mississippi River which is restricted between a man-made levee system. Their 'experimentation' and failure to open the Morganza Spillway.... Read More

I made another trip to Bayou Pigeon this past Saturday. There was a line a trucks on the gravel road leading to the parking area. Once over the levee, each vehicle in front of me stopped, prepared their boat for launch and patiently waited in line for their turn to launch. I was four trucks back, waiting in line to launch, when a pickup truck came over the levee, stopped on the levee slope, put.... Read More

I made a trip to the Atchafalaya Basin this past Saturday (yes, even with knowledge of high water and the torrential rains early Saturday morning). I chose to go to the Bayou Pigeon Landing to scout some of the areas that I go fishing once the Basin returns back to normal pool. Right now the water is roughly five feet (5') higher on the Bayou Sorrell gauge for optimum fishing...but from the.... Read More

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.

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

  • A nice Goggle-Eye to remember
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

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.... Read More

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.

An LSU fan and an Arkansas fan were checking out of their hotel in Omaha after the 2009 College World Series.



The LSU fan proceeded to pay her hotel bill with a check, despite the large sign behind the front desk that read, "No Out-of-Town Checks Allowed." The clerk took her check and gave her a receipt.



The Arkansas fan then attempted to pay his bill with a check. The clerk.... Read More

Freshwater Fishing in Outside Louisiana
Lake Okhissa, Mississippi



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 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!!!
