Bass Fishing in False River in South Central Louisiana
I just purchased a 2008 Z520 Commanche a few weeks ago. On my way home from Texas,I noticed the trailer swayed back and forth from both directions. Upon my arrival in Baton Rouge, I purchased five new Prometer Trailer tires. This hasn't stopped the trialer from swaying.

I don't believe my trailer has ever been wrecked.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

General in False River in South Central Louisiana
Bob Battistella

This morning, I was traveling westbound on I-10, when I noticed LA Dept. of Wildlife & Fisheries vehicle tag number SF-21 towing airboat #4. The airboat trailer didn't have a left rear brake light, turn signal, or license plate.

I feel this should be corrected immediately. I have my rig inspected to obtain a inspection sticker every two years. I believe.... Read More

Bass Fishing in Henderson Lake in South Central Louisiana
Spillway crybabies

Nothing will please self-appointed bass protectors. They will always have disdain for anyone that likes to fish & eat their catches. Scientific studies be damned, these self-appointed bass protectors know what's best.

You guys kill me!!!

A recent LDWF evaluation determined that the 14 minimum size limit for bass in the Atchafalaya Basin, Lake Verret, Lake.... Read More

Can someone please give me some insight into the Pearl River water levels? I need to know the correct water level @ Pearl River, LA to be able to fish the East Pearl @ Hwy 90 bridge. Or, is there another river level guage that I am unaware of?

I'd really appreciate some help. Thanks in advance, Bob

Fishing in South Central Louisiana
Louisiana Wildlife & Fisheries ought to be ashamed of themselves. I went to the office off Quail Drive this morning to purchase a duplicate boat registration. Needless to say, I didn't enjoy the experience. The ladies are locked behind an inch of glass, as they speak through some type of microphone system. Why do they need an inch of glass? Do they feel as though danger awaits? The real.... Read More

Trout Slam was on this past Saturday. The beach was a little soupy & the water wasn't that clear, but 5 of us caught 125 trout by 1:00PM.

Is the water level good in the Pearl River? If so; is anybody catching any bass?

I've always shared good or bad when I've traveled from Baton Rouge to fish the Pearl. I'd appreciate any info.

Thanks in advance,

Can someone please post the web-site that allows me to monitor the Pearl River stages that are best for fishing this area?

Also, please list the stages & what they mean for the fishing.

Thanks in advance, Bob Battistella

Any locals have an idea what the Pearl River will be like tomorrow? Is the water going to be really muddy?

I didn't let the weather scare me off yesterday. Launched @ East Pearl off Hwy 90 & went north to 1st cut on the left & fished the cut itself and caught nothing. So, came back into Pearl River & fished the mouth with about 5 other boats. We all caught nice size specks.

Proceeded north of I-10 & caught some nice bass...then went south & fished the cane or.... Read More

What's the opinion of everyone on fishing Saturday with the weather that's coming in? I hate to waste a trip, but have caught fish there when it was cold & windy?
