From Sabine to the Rigolets, anglers will be chasing big speckled trout this month, and we’ve got some of the hottest spots mapped out. […]
Red hooks and baits are all the rage, but do they actually put more bass on the end of your line? We investigate. […]
I had to look on the package to see if this would be OK or not. I mean, remove the hooks and put on red ones? Bend something, tweak this, and change that? Is it legal? No one ever told me I could do this before.
Well, the manufacturer did not say to keep away except for tying it on and casting it out, so it must be allowed, right?
Modifying your current stock of fishing lures may just be the most-important thing you do, ranking right up there with changing your line and cleaning your reels.
Sure, fishing is fishing, but we’ve all been there on days when our favorite lure just didn’t quite get the job done.
The idea of modified lures came from a good friend, Scott Louviere, who presented me with one as a going-away present last summer. Like me, Louviere likes to fish for bass in the Acadiana area.
Maybe it’s just me, but it sure seemed like a long winter. Some of the poor folks up north dubbed it “the winter that wouldn’t die,” which sounded more like a pathetic plot in a Grade B movie than a weather condition.

As the Pearl River flows past the town of Bogalusa on its way to Lake Borgne, the winding path provides a state line for Louisiana and Mississippi, but the scenic beauty offered by the river is boundless. […]
When work or play calls for AC power on your boat or tow vehicle, an inverter is usually the simplest and least-expensive way to provide it. Just plug the inverter into a cigarette lighter or accessory power socket and then plug your AC tools or toys into the inverter. […]
The heavy fog, which had inundated the extreme southwestern part of the state, was just beginning to break when the 9-pound redfish began its assault on the southern end of Sabine Lake, trying in vain to render the colorful MirrOlure useless for the remainder of the day. […]
The Texan whose artificial lures speak for themselves with their productivity, so much so that they have become a staple in the tackleboxes of pros and weekend anglers alike, can’t help but be proud of a spinnerbait series that’s hooking up bass from Texas to all points of the compass, including Louisiana. […]
The sky was a gorgeous dark grey — almost black — as we pounded into Breton Sound. Lovely little white caps topped the waves like frosting on chocolate cake, the swells between them heavily rippled by the savage gusts that had kicked up just seconds earlier. […]
