I'm wanting to go perch jerking this weekend. I know the pearl river if high but was thinking of going to the east pearl. The question I have is with the river so high are the perch fish able? Since the water is moving fast and goes in to woods not sure if it's a good time. Any knowledge is appreciated. Thanks in advance

Went out Saturday night on the hunt for some frogs. Did ok but the frogs a lil spooky. The bright moon sure didn't help. But had a good time.

Took a friend and a kid frogging last night north of the pen. We did not c a single frog. Never tried there and heard some people catch there but water seemed high. I don't have a mud boat so gotta stay n the canals. Frogging season is open and havent seen any posts. Any frogging reports?

When fishing for red fish and trout in the bays and lakes is it better to fish the down wind side or or up wind side the lake? Any knowledge is appreciated. Try to find fish in lafitte tomorrow after work.

Want to take some neighborhood kids fishing but have no idea where to go. I'm looking for anything.... sailor cats, drum, sheephead. Just want the kids to get some action. Was thinking trestle / hwy11, seabrook, or lafette. Any advice/ recommendations? Any input appreciated.

This cold weather has me wonder about the hot water canal I've always heard about. Been there one time recently and the pump wasn't on and neither were the fish. But gave it a try. Anyone on here know any ting about it. Do the pumps still run and when? Does it still produce fish? Thank you for any tips. Thinking bout braving the cold.

I've been spending the last few months hunting and now need to get back fishing but I don't know where to start. Any one have any luck at seabrook lately? Was thinking bout spending my morning there.

This was my first yr hunting Pearl river wma. Was having good time n decent luck with both deer and hogs. I been using my boat and the area I was hunting flooded pretty good when the river was at 15ft. I have no experience hunting the swamp and was wonder does the water push all the deer out the area and how long before the hunting is decent in the area again? Any advice will help. Thanks in advance.

That's a nice mess of fish. Looks like ur day was a lot better then mine. Took a newbie fishing sat afternoon but the wind made it hard for us. Fished the same area but was using shrimp under cork and spoons and didn't get a bite. Did u find clean water and how deep was the water u were fishing?

I went to bayou st. John bout 1yr a go and caught a few. Caught the biggest I ever seen. I would go by the the wall where the bayou meets the lake. They opened the bayou back up where the bayou passes under Robert e lee. Looks good but get there early, something must be going on there. I used to do really good with the perch on live crickets while I let the traps soak.

I took a boat ride at seabrook sat afternoon. Talked to lady at the launch who spent the morning crabbing along the wall. She told me they didn't catch many and they were small. Never know till ya go but didn't look like she had much luck.

A comment titled: where are they hiding in response to a report titled: frogs

When the water is high like it is, are there places to frog still? Or is it just bad everywhere?

A comment titled: same here in response to a report titled: hows the fishing around lafitte

Went there twice. Fished lake salvador area and caught one keep and about a dozen 15'' n under. Went in little lake area and caught 3 keepers and bout 1/2 dozen rad reds. All on dead shrimp and dirty water everywhere. Where are the keepers hanging out? Too windy? Full moon?

That's the answer I was looking for. I'm sure many other thing come into play but that is the general rule. Thanks.

We went this morning. We didn't get a bite. Tried live bait on the trusles w no luck. Wind was kicking pretty good. We still enjoyed ourselves though. I'm not to familiar w the area n not the best fisher but gave it a try. Hope ur luck is better.

A comment titled: same boat in response to a report titled: Kids want to fish?

Coot I got the same idea as u. Haven't had luck anywhere lately. I'm going take them to the trustles in the morning and give it a try. Figured it might be the easiest spot in the boat.

A comment titled: hmmm in response to a report titled: hot water?

Maybe it didn't get cold enough long enough for them to stack up. But i dont know a thing bout that place. Wondering if its worth a try. Itching to fish but unsure if that is where I should try. Seems pretty cold but how cold is cold? Lol

A comment titled: any action in response to a report titled: hot water?

A comment titled: trolling in response to a report titled: Trolling

I looked it up n the past. Doesn't seem complicated. My main issue was the lures I guess.

A comment titled: thanks in response to a report titled: Trolling

We gonna have to try again but we did not want to spend to much bc I was not sure if I would troll that often. We only were trying bass lures or 3/4 oz jig heads. With pics like that I might have to invest a little I guess.

What size lure do y'all use? Tried it with my dad but don't think the lures were heavy enough.
