windy day of fishing in golden meadow, tough fishing. caught out limit last weekend but today was a little tougher. morning bite was still a slow steady retreive and as it warmed we swithced to popping corks, caught a lot of little specks in the marsh, but still managed 16 specks 2 reds and a sheepdead.
Since there aren't many post going up, just a mental note since hunting season is around the corner. I am not saying this as a land owner or leasee. Please lets all respect the hunters and stay out of any ponds with blinds during duck season, as the faith of our fishing spots depend on it unfortunatly. here is a scary thought, and some info some of us may not know, that i would like to share. every canal and pond in golden meadow and leeville, is privately leased from oil companys. and the oil companys advise each leesee to kick people out. That just goes to show that the majority of the people leesing property in this area are good people and do not inforce it, as most canals are open to fishing. A good example of this is the canals near the launch in golden meadow suddenly became a pay to fish couple years back, then it faded away as the lessee droped the lease, it all depends on who has the lease, and beleive me all property is leased out there, just call the oil companys and see if you do not beleive. it just didnt become private, it always was. I have been fishing in other areas with canals blocked off by gates, is this legal? yes only in the great state of louisiana. Now there are some canals state owned, but very few. Here is a useful website link you can use to determine what is private and what is state claimed. http://www.doa.louisiana.gov/slo/disclaimer.htm By know means was this post meant to take sides of the fisherman nor the hunter, just to say thanks to all the good guys out there willing to let us have access to canals they pay for, so the least we could do is give them some space during the short hunting season. Its just scary to think that every canal in the marsh could be gated tomorow if that person decided.
had a good day on the water behind golden meadow, fished under the birds, lots of throw backs but still ended the morning at ten with 100 fish, 35 of wich were keeper trout the rest whites only keeping the larger ones. we must have caught well over 200 fish this morning, it was a blast.
a few guys with surface drives cut a small path through the storm clooged launch canal for your outboard to pass. here is a pic of a boat following the narrow path. the fishing is on fire after this storm, good reports coming from everyone who i talked to. I hope to maybe get out sat. will post report.
BOOOOOM baby back online we got power in cut off finally, close the windows kick the mosquitos out and turn on the ac. golden meadow and grandisle still out tho maybe a few more days, I hope they get some soon.
left out golden meadow sat. morning headed streight to bayou blue to hit the banks for some reds. threw everything in the box at them with no luck. we could see them but they would not bite, didnt have any live or fresh bait to try, so we shifted gears anwent on the prowl for trout. by that time thunder storms were starting to sorround us, so we headed to lake billiot and got on a decent bite and caught 18 keeper trout half speck and half whites with some throw backs AS well. only got to fish about an hour before lightning and rain chased us in. trout were caught on popping cork with double chartruese split tail grubs.
You know i really wish when people would post how many fish they caught they would give a general direction, dont have to give ur direct spot but name the specific area, are keep ur pictures to ur self. because people will see ur pics and will ask thinking u actually want to help. I and many on thise site do give good info like for example. I caught my limit this weekend near casstette island in timbalaier bay. or i caught 30 specs this weekend on the beach elmers island. Bob gouges gives this info, myself and many others. people with pictures and no general direction just want to make people think they are great.
Hey guys i dont know if yall noticed in the classifieds the dirt cheap boats with the sad stories and the MOUNTAINS in the back ground. I hope no one falls for these deals where they want you to send money and they ship the boat to you. I been sending them harrassing emails and it seemed to hit a nerve cause one of em emailed me back. We need everyone to flood them with emails so that they get the hint that we are not stupid. here is the email i sent and got back Lol. his answer to me below.

My youngest of my 2 girls caught her first fish at 2 years old, with her uncle Chase on the dock of our camp near elmers island for fathers day. she was all smiles.
Went to my brother in law's house and noticed his boat looks like it hasn't moved in a while. Time to take a day off of work before he cant find his boat, LOL.
Well after a horable trip sat. with 25mph winds and cold weather, we were able to take the day off today (tues.) and go out to bayou blue south catfish lake and limit out on some nice reds, the old man and me. It wasnt fast and furious but we had agreat time. best bait was blue tsunami swim bait, altho we fished strictly artaficial market shrimp prop would have worked also. If you need a boat email us or give us a call 985-475-7878 or 985-665-6374
Well hunting season is over and its back to fishing. went out this morning to catfish lake and found plenty of specks on the north side but only bagged 6 legal before the wind picked up. headed for the marsh and fished the cuts with current in about 4ft of water to finish the morning with 22 specks 1 red 2 drum, wich is great for this time of year. my father and i had a great time on the water.

Hey guys can anyone tell me if there are any ducks in dulac, thinking of getting in on a lease near the harry bourg property area on the south side. Any info on how you may have done last year on the ducks if you hunt that area. thanks.

Winds are kicking in cut off/ golden meadow right now. just had this crazy gust of wind that blew my 21 foot proline boat on a double axle trailer out from under my carport and on to the street, LOL. crazy man i never had that happen, my neighbor came knock at the door and told me he saw it, and it took both of us to push it back. LOL.
Trout bite still great in jackos camp bay out of deep bayou in leeville. launched out of boudraux's early sat morning and tried something different, ran out to the gulf to fish the beach in fourchon and elmers. there were a few fish there but it was a little slow boating 20 or so trout by 9 am. so we headed to our spot in jackos camp bay and it was on, ending the morning with 98 trout, specks and whites mixed. If you need a boat to get out there we now have an 18ft bay boat to rent, or if you like marsh fishing, we have jon/flat boats available. call for more details @ 985-475-7878 or 985-665-6374
