I launched in Lac Des Allemands at about 12:30 just to check and see if the sacs had moved in the canals a little bit more after this Cajun blizzard. I ended up all the in Tank Battery across the lake since the water was really shallow in the canals close to home. Caught 9 but it was a hussle. They're definitely in there, just not stacked up yet. I don't mind this time of fishing, it helps me learn different techniques. Tight lines my brothas!
Me and my dad got on the lake at about 1pm and went home at 5:30. We tried live grass shrimp, artificial grass shrimp, with crappie psychic scent trailers. It was my first time using the trailers and I'm convinced that they work! Just make sure you have a big enough hook or else you'll miss your bites, like me lol. We managed only 2 catfish, 2 perch, and 1 sacalait. A big sac popped my line after hitting the side of the boat, that hurt my heart. I think the fish are biting late in the evening so we going again tomorrow around 4. I'm thinking they biting 2 hours before dark so hopefully I can crack the code tomorrow
I hit the Sulphur mine yesterday with my dad again and managed a few keepers. Tons of throwbacks! We got 16 trout all caught on chartreuse vudu shrimp (the smallest size they make) All of the fish were caught in the main canal. Seems like the fish haven't really gone into the mine just yet. Went in there and didn't catch a bite. I'm itching to get back out there at the end of the month when I'm off again! Until then, tight lines my brothas!ð£ð£ð£
I know I'm late but me, my dad, and my cousin Big John took trip to the Sulphur Mine on Saturday morning. Caught a lot of undersized trout and sail cats but managed a few keepers. Even got a nice redfish and a drum so we still had a blast. We started off following the birds inside the mine but after we got tired of chasing them we hit the canals. It was one of those days where you really had to fish for them. We caught them on lemonhead Matrix Shad 4ft under a cork in the deep canals. I love fishing with my dad whether we limit out or don't catch a bite I don't care. Can't wait for the next trip! Tight lines my brothas...
We hit a few canals in Lac Des Allemands. Fished from 12:00 to 6:30. Most of the fish were caught after 5:00 on worms
We caught a few on Friday. Just gotta be patient and try to find them. Tried different color jigs and shiners. People usually catch them in this area on grass shrimp. The best bite on that day was right before dark. The canals in the lake don't hold a lot of fish of fish nowadays but you gotta go to know. The deepest canals are only 4ft. Tipped the jigs with powerbait. Fish were holding TIGHT to the trees. If you want to make sure you catch something make sure you bring different color jigs, grass shrimp and shiners. It all depends on what they want on that particular day.
Went fishing for sacalait yesterday and ended up catching 5 bass, a few perch, and 1 sacalait. The bass were nailing the shiners as soon as the line was hitting the water! I caught the perch on a salt n pepper tube jig tipped with some white power bait and worms. The sacs were hiding from us but I got one on a shiner out of Stump Canal. Caught some of the bass on Humble and at the mouth of Columbia. The water was the cleanest I've seen it all year. I gotta work until Monday, maybe it'll pick up by then
First I wanna give a shoutout to Tngu141 and Robicheaux31 for giving me some info on where to go! Only problem is that I'm not used to the area and don't know the names of the bayous and canals that well. Anyway we ended up launching at the public launch in Leeville, made the loop around, passed the little oil rigs and fished a point not far from them on the right hand side. Caught about specs, only 3 keepers. Caught about 20 hardheads and my first stingray! That sucker fought so hard! The wind was blowing hard but not as bad as I thought. We tried going further down the main channel but kept running into really shallow water. Didn't catch any reds, flounder, or sheepshead but we still had good day on the water. Can't wait to get back so we can find some new spots
Me and my Dad are planning to go fishing tomorrow morning but can't decide on whether we wanna go to Golden Meadow or Grand Isle. We have a 16ft aluminum flat with a 90hp. We are not too familiar with neither of the areas but we would like to fish the marsh area of one of the 2 places. Can anyone provide any insight on where to go how to get there?? Will post pics if we catch
Me and my bros are planning to go to Grand Isle early Saturday morning to fish for specs, reds, sheepsheads, drum, etc (whatever bites, I eat it all). I'm hearing that the specs are biting pretty good on live croakers though. Can anyone tell me where I could buy some live croakers or live shrimp at around 6 that morning? I'd appreciate any info...
I'm heading out to Ramah this morning to try for choupic and catfish. I'll post what happens. Does anyone now where I coulget some bait shrimp in Ramah? I don't remember if that little baitshop sells them
I'm taking my girlfriend to Grand Isle for the first time tomorrow. I read a couple of days ago that the white trout were biting at night (I don't think she's ready for a night trip yet) I just might get out there for about 5am and fish the bridge. I've always had terrible luck in Grand Isle during the day time. Can anyone tell me some decent spots from the bank (I don't have a boat)
I'm planning on taking a friend of mine to Grand Isle tonight to do some night fishing on the bridge. I don't know how good the night fishing is this time of year down there but I went last year while it was still warm and it was a feeding frenzy under the lights. Don't think it will be that way tonight but we'll try it out and I'll post some pics if I catch anything. Any tips to success on the bridge this time of year?
I'm having trouble deciding what area I want to fish tomorrow. My friends and I will be fishing from the bank and we're either gonna go to Island Rd. or Golden Meadow (over the levy behind T-Pops) I'm not sure how deep the fish are gonna be tomorrow is the reason why I'm undecided. I don't think Island Rd is deep at all and Golden Meadow has this really deep hole right by this pump station thats pretty good when it gets really cold so I only go there when its really cold. I just don't think it'll be cold enough tomorrow for me to go there. What yall think??
My friend and I fished last week on Island Rd and caught 19 keeper specks and 1 nice flounder before the wind picked up. This was the day right before the cold front. We're planning to go again tomorrow and I know its supposed to rain all night down there in Montegut. Do yall think this would ruin the trip? There's a North wind ranging from 5-10 mph. Any help would be appreciated!!
Me and my buddy got to Grand Isle at about 3am on Friday and caught specs off the bridge under the light until the sun came up! Only problem was that none of them were keeper size!! They were fun to catch though. I mean every cast I was catching them. About 50 of them were between 10-11 inches.
Me and my friends are looking to go to grand isle on friday. We're looking for some good spots to go bank fishing. Not really targeting a specific type of fish, just looking for a bite and a good time. Any suggestions would be great!
I want to go to the basin tomorrow but i never been before and dont know if there are any good spots to do any bank fishing since I dont have a boat. Can anyone tell me about any spots to fish off the bank around the basin? Any help would be appreciated.
Me and my friends are thinking about heading to the new fishing pier in slidell (for the first time) for some reds, drums, sheepsheads, and trout this saturday. Has anyone ever gone out there? How's the fishing? Is it over crowded on Saturdays?
If we dont go there, we'll probably end up going to LA 1 or Island Rd. And I don't have a clue how the water is over there rite now. Any feedback would be GREAT!
Hey I was wondering does the start of a cold front bother the fish to where they wouldn't bite too much for a day or two? I've heard this from other fishermen that the frequent change of temperature could cause the fish to not be as active. I've never fished right at the beginning of a cold front before to even know if this is true. I have fished about two days into a cold front before and the fishing was usually excellent in deep holes. I'm thinking about going out to Golden Meadow tomorrow to catch some specs, reds, and sheepshead while I finally have the time off from work. I would love for my hour and a half drive to be at least a little bit worth my while. Any info could be useful...
