Look at a map of eastern Louisiana, from Bastrop to New Roads, and you’ll realize the power of the mighty Mississippi. Over millennia, the great river has carved out dozens of deep waterways, most of which have become isolated from the river’s flow.

Capt. Tommy Pellegrin likes to think he has the luxury of fishing out of Cocodrie. Now, before you start complaining that he is being just a little shortsighted, consider that his reasoning has more to do with the Mississippi River than it does a territorial stance.
|Prespawn Patrol — Tips for bass fishing success during the prespawn
February 01 at 7:00 am
Pickles and ice cream, donuts with lots of sprinkles, Cheese Whiz and anything with chocolate — pregnancy cravings are a fact of life, for a soon-to-be mom eating for two (or more).
Expectant bass might not crave anything odd, but they’re all about packing their bellies for their forthcoming spawn. Learn where and how to locate these fish and you can, ahem, “expect” your own delivery of rod-bending fun.
First, consider the basics of where they’ll spawn. Creeks, coves, backwater canals. Pretty much any shallow habitat with good sunlight and some type of cover will do.
|LDWF corrects 2013 turkey hunting season dates
January 31 at 5:00 pm
Turkey hunting on the U.S. Corps of Engineers’ Old River and Lock Area will be allowed March 23 through April 7, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries reported today.
The dates listed for that area were printed correctly in the 2013 turkey hunting regulations pamphlet, but were incorrect on page 86 of the state’s hunting regulations pamphlet are incorrect, the LDWF said.
|Defining Lake Catahoula
December 01, 2012 at 7:00 am
Defining Catahoula is difficult. Perhaps it is easier to define what it is not.
It is not a wildlife management area. It is not private property (or at least it has not been considered so historically), so it is open for “public” hunting. It is not hunter friendly.
Above all, it is not easy to manage.
It might not even be a lake — at least by the most common definitions of the word.

Once again, the weather prognosticaters had proven that their job is better left to leaf readers and Ouija boards.
I’d taken a good day of vacation to take my daughter Cokie fishing while she was off on Easter break. We were hoping to hit a home run on big bream at Lake Concordia.

April is one of the best months for both freshwater and marsh fly fishing. Picking the location and the species can be more difficult than catching the fish!
|Catahoula’s colorful history
November 01, 2011 at 10:03 am
Every Louisiana sportsman has heard of Catahoula Lake, the duck hunting mecca in east-central Louisiana, but they might not know what a rich and sometimes violent history it has.
|Farmerville angler wins Triton bass rig in Bassmaster All-Star week
August 02, 2011 at 1:28 pm
Farmerville’s Cynthia Bryan knew she had a good shot at winning a rigged-out $30,000 Triton boat this past weekend as part of the Bassmaster All-Star Week, but she couldn’t believe it when the hope turned into reality.
Bryan, a Bassmaster Central Open co-angler during the 2010 was one of only a dozen sweepstakes finalists in the Toyota Trucks All-Star Fan Favorites contest. Her hopes squarely depended upon the fishing performance of Bassmaster Elite Series rookie Ott DeFoe’s.
And when DeFoe came out on top Sunday (July 31) in the All-Star competition, he also won the boat for Bryan.
|Speck-tacular flyfishing comes to those who wade
June 09, 2011 at 2:18 pm
Flyrodders who had to cancel their trips to Grand Isle, Fourchon, Holly Beach and Breton Island last summer don’t want to ever again hear the word “Maconda.”
|Cut to the Chase
March 01, 2011 at 1:11 pm
Perhaps it’s the pure enjoyment of a long boat ride. Maybe it’s the pioneering spirit to explore that drives us. Or maybe it’s trying to find a honeyhole a friend pointed out on a map.
|High-Cotton Crappie: Tips for cold-water sac-a-lait
January 20, 2011 at 6:39 am
The only thing more consistent than a cold-water crappie bite is the speed at which news of the bite spreads.
Such was the case not too long ago when I met Tony Peters, a Saline Larto crappie guide, and his fishing buddy Glenn Birkicht at a little store to the south of their home lake that spans Catahoula and LaSalle parishes.
