“(We m)ade a nice weekend trip to our camp in Lafitte Friday afternoon (April 8) and fished with a lot of wind both Friday afternoon and all day Saturday,” Ducote wrote this morning (April 11). “As much as I hate fishing in the wind it did not slow down the bite. We caught fish both days in some pretty stiff winds.”

Most of you know my first love is bass fishing but in this week’s column I thought I would devote space to crappie coverage since I have had so many white perch/crappie questions.
In recent weeks Toledo has produced some really awesome white perch in numerous places on the lake but especially at the famous Chicken Coop. Most anglers who have lived in the lake area are aware of this part of Toledo lake, but numerous others may not. The results of the past two to three winters have been disappointing but not this year!! It has been off the charts. […]

It’s been said the secret of happiness is to count your blessings while others are adding up their troubles. Sometimes we’re so caught up in whatever we forget to enjoy what we have or the moment. Even with a lifetime many of us have spent on Louisiana waters I find it hard to put into words the wonderment of wade fishing, swimming, and relaxing at Breton Island today. […]
On Monday (April 12)evening I wanted to see if I could roost some birds. I brought my wife along. So at 7:15 p.m., we were sitting in a blown-down tree glassing the fields. Soon we could see two birds heading our way. We watched them fly up to a dead pine. […]

Here is the whole story. Hunted yesterday evening (Dec. 27 on Mississippi lease). Saw a doe in my food plot on powerline. She stayed and then left and then later she or another doe guessing the same one reentered and fed until dark. […]
It was before sunrise on the morning of Sunday, December 13, 2009, when 6-year-old Cullen Edmonston looked at the cover of a hunting magazine and said, “Daddy, I’m going to kill one like that this morning.” Little did they know the statement was soon to be a true one. […]
