I am looking for taxidermist to mount a nice 9 pointer my wife shot in November. Any recommendations? If possible, a contact name and number would be greatly appreciated.
Well, Lacassine is in NEED of some rain. Water is low and rain is not in the forcast..... Opening day ought to be very 'interesting' to say the least.
Let's see out of all the pool fishermen on here, who can take the funniest picture and post it.
Want to give people a warning about bad gas in Lake Charles at KK's Corner. I filled up my boat two days ago at KK's roughly 40 gallons. Put boat in the water and ran for about 1/2 mile then shut down. Found water in fuel lines. I got towed back to dock. Once home, I pumped out 15 gallons of water out of my fuel tank. Note, this tank was empty prior to filling. Took a sample of the fuel from the tank to my motor and brought it to KK's to show them, and they just basically said ok and that was it!!! I personally have heard of four other people with a very similar story from KK;s fuel.
Just passing out the word to anyone interested...
Today i fished in the Matt O'blanc classic tournament in Lacassine pool. Not a real big turn out of boats,think there was ~12 boats. Anyway, there was some nice fish caught today by me and my partner as well as many others. One of the rles for the torney is live fish for weigh in and all fished to be released. I am 100% all for that (my opinion). My issue is that the torunament director did not release the fish back into Lacassine. Rather, all the fish were to be released into the Calcasieu River. I personally feel this is TOTAL B.S.
Why should fish from the pool be transported to the river. I did ask the man why not release the fish back into the pool where they came from. His response was " they are trying to help ot the bass population on the river and get better fish for river fishing tournaments." Now, I am not a biologist, but woldn't this be a not so good thing. First, they came from the pool they need to go back to the pool. Second, this would be a total shock for them in my mind. Coming from a clean freshwater marsh and going into the dirty and nasty river. Third, if people want to make the river better then go for it, just don't "rob from peter to pay paul!!"
Is there a scientific reason why to not put the fish back into the pool? Any knowledge would be helpful.....
I personally will not fish in this type of tourney again due to this.
Well, after hearing a rumor from a few friends I decided to call the Refuge headquarters to confirm. well, it is official they have raised the motor size limit to Lacassine pool. Now, you can have up to a 40 HP in the Pool. That ought to make a little more "madness" in the unit.
First, let me just say I hope all of you who choose to crab from the bank at Lacassine Pool catch them ALL....
Although, PLEASE CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELVES. Every morning when I get to the launch it is worse and worse by the day. Trash all over the ground and lots of string left tied to the dock 4x4 poles. I mean come on, how hard can it be to just remove the strings all the way rather then just cut off the bait and leave the strings there. Just pure laziness and trashy.
Second, for the people who walk past the GATE (probably a reason it's there HINT HINT) and crab near the bridge, DO NOT leave your crab lines in the boat passage. I spent a good 30 minutes this morning cutting out crabbing string from my prop. And then, some of the crabbers get mad when a boat needs to cross under the bridge. It's a boat passage people....get over it.
I really wish the wildlife and fisheries would start patrolling the pool and being very hard on people crabbing from bank and making a mess. I understand not all people are trashy and some of you clean up after yourselves so thank you to those select few of yall.
Feedback and comments appreciated......
Was told today there was a 12.7 bass caught in the pool yesterday. Reliable source. Anyone hear about this?
Anyone who fishes the eastern side of the pool, make new plans for new locations. Yesterday around 09:30, four wildlife agents in two different boats were in the eastern side making sure no boats were still in there. They did find me way back in a flat and came out there to get me to leave. I asked why for the total closure and the agent stated it was due to vegitation growth. Some kind of vegitation that was possibly brought in from someone's boat. He then told me that they were going to try and drain it very rapidly and try to burn it.
Just wanted to give all of you who fish this section a heads up. I personally fish the eastern side more than any other part, so time to go to my others spots and try them out. Too bad though, i was catching really good fish here recently in the eastern side.
Well, they sure are off about the weather being clear and warming up. This morning was just the opposite. It was cool, windy, cloudty, and misty rain. Made the fishing very challenging. Ended up with 9 but no big size to any of them. I just had to see it for myself, so i headed to the North Ponds and South Ponds. It was crazy..... I am not sure how everyones lines were not getting crossed up. There was boat everywhere. Looked like a view of the weirs when the shrimp or crabs are running hard. Would have taken a picture, but forgot camera.
Hope weather stars to get better soon so the fishing will pick up.
Top fish weighed 10.2 and the lower fish weighed 8.4 pounds. Mounted by steve German.
Just wanted to get everyone excited about some of the fish the pool has to offer. By all means not bragging, just pumping everyone up. Believe me, i have seen many other bass making these two look small that came out of Lacassine. The day I caught the 10.2, my father caught and release a 7.9.
Any comments or thoughts on the report in the Lake Charles American Press today on Lacassine Pool?
Made a trip to the pool today in truck to view the water level and see if water was salty any. The good news is the water does not seems to be salty, but the bad news is the water level. The water level is just as low today as it was at the close of last season. VERY LOW!!!!! Therefore, fair warning to all the WW's heading out there Sunday the 15th. Good luck to all the people actually trying to fish and be careful of boats in tight trails. I personally am waiting for all the WW's to finish their madness after the first few days before I make an attempt.

To try and follow up the previous days trip with my wife, I decide to take my mother, father, nephew, son, and daughter. We returned back to my little perch hole and started having lots of fun. We ended up with two bass and 104 big gog-al-eyes. My parents and all the kids had a blast. Kids surely make all trips better when you see them having fun.
My wife and I went to the pool on Saturday morning looking to find some perch. We found this great spot and ended up keeping 64 big Gog-al-eye. My wife really enjoyed herself.
The day before that, my 10 year old boy Drake and myself went bass fishing and ended up with 16 bass ranging from 1.5 pounds to 4 pounds. He caught the biggest bass at 4 pounds.
The bass fishing has been good this past week in the pool. I have been every day and had great trips each morning. Just be preparred for high winds out of the south around 09:00hrs. The bad news though is that this morning another board was pulled from the Bell City Drain Ditch spillway. As iff the water was not low enough, it is about to get worse. If anyone was looking to go the either of the two Grove's, be preparred for some very shallow water with grass plugged trails. I can be ran, but be preparred and ready to work. Alot of people fishing for perch in main trails catching hit and miss. A
Recently, my wife and I had a great trip in the pool. We ended up with a limit of bass each and threw back a lot also. We caught around 30 bass on this trip. Follwed this trip the next day with another limit of bass with my father. The fishing in the pool has been very impressive this year compared to the previous years.
