This past Sunday I decided to go and check on the camp at about 8:30 A.M. While getting the boat ready called two buddies to see if they might want to try and catch a few reds while we were out. Got to Halter Island at about 10:30 A.M. and really didnt do nothing, tide was still coming up so we decided to head for the camp. Got back to Halter Island at around 12:30 and started fishing again. The tide was just about to start falling so we decided to wait it out for a little while and it paid off. We caught a total of about 25 or so reds with about half of them being right at the 16" mark. All the rest were in the 18" range, just perfect for the grill. Anyway I had a good day fishing with two good friends and sorry I had to OUT FISH both of yall but thats just the way it goes.

Caught some real nice specks this weekend. Went out with some friends Saturday afternoon and fished until around 10:00 that night. Came home with around 70 specks in the ice chest. Fished at block 28 & 33. Weather was real nice and calm. If anybody that reads this post can tell me if the pass going into Oyster Bayou is clear. We heard that some dredging took place in that area and all of the spoils were just left there in the channel so we went around Point a Feur. Would like to go back this weekend but through Oyster Bayou. Thanks

Launched at the Berwick landing yesterday morning headed to the Blue Hamock. Kinda foggy in the morning but didnt last that long. Anyway got to the spot and the action was pretty slow. Tried fishing a few of the damms and a couple of points only to catch eight redfish and three black drum. Wind was blowing pretty good and Four League Bay got a little choppy. Still a better day than being at work though.

On the home page there is an article about the speck fishing in the Lockport area. Since I have never fished that area can anybody tell me where the best place to launch at. Also how is the water depths. I have a 22' bay boat, it does'nt draw that much water but would still like to make sure.

Anytime but this weekend. Remember I have to go and teach the little ones a thing or two about catfishing at the campground. Any other weekend I would love to put you and nonk back in the classroom of catching those reds.

Meauxjeaux9, I like the way your route sounds due to you would have alot of fishing grounds that can be covered on the way. But having never fished this area before I dont now how to even get to the landing you are talking about by land, by water I should be able to pick this info up on my GPS or by map. Also what size boats can run in the route you are talking about. I have a 20' bay boat. Any further info would be appreciated. Thanks

A comment titled: Just my opinion in response to a report titled: Trout Question

Only my opinion and trust me I have not fished specks for that long nor that often but when we have the chance to go we have always done better on plastic. Just last weekend the friends that we went speck fishing with drove a total of 150 miles to get some live cacahoes and guess what, we only caught a total of 4 out of 70 specks on the 150 mile bait. All the rest were caught on plastic and they were some very nice sized specks.

Not to bad. Of course the river sandbars change almost every year due to storms and the amount of current that run through it. The only place that you need to really pay attention to is when you get close to Deer Island bayou. If you are fimiliar with this area then on a good tide you can follow the bank but on a low tide it is best to head towards the mounth of the river and follow the pilings coming back in toward the mouth of Deer Island bayou (this is the tug & barge route so it stays with pretty decent water). Once you get past there you should be ok.

Did not try Locust yesterday, but have done good there this time of year in previous years. As far as Oyster Bayou I have not gone back since the storms so I dont know about the channel going in. A friend of mine said that they dredged out that way and dumped the spoils on side of the channel so you got to know where your going. Maybe somebody else can post if they have been out that way more recently

A comment titled: Lenco Brand in response to a report titled: Trim tabs

Just installed a set of Lenco brand trim tabs on a 18' aluminum bat boat. They were easy to install but would sugest spending a little more money than we did and get the control panel with the LED lighted guage. We baught them from Donovan Marine Catalog
