I have a 20-foot Xpress bay boat and would like to make a low-cost, temporary bowfishing setup using LEDs and a battery/batteries. Does anyone have any ideas, photos, etc. they would like to share of something similar? Thanks a bunch!

I will be launching out of Falgout Canal Marina later this week and was wondering if someone could provide some tips or suggested places to try. I've been asked to go with some friends, but I've never fished the area. I have a 20-foot Xpress bay boat and would like to get on some trout and/or redfish. Thanks in advance!

I have a 2013 Xpress H20B bay boat and I am having issues while re-fueling. The fuel line seems restricted since I cannot press the pump handle more than 1/4 of the way before it bottoms out. I removed the fuel fill line and the check valve is working properly. There are no blockages in the main fill line. I even tried adding fuel directly to the tank with the same problem. Could this be due to a venting issue from one of the lines coming in/out of the tank?

I am interested in building a removable bowfishing setup for my boat. I have a 20-ft Xpress bay boat and I am looking for ideas. I don't need any extravagant, just enough for a couple people on the front deck. Thanks in advance!

Can anyone tell me the conditions at Lake Verret or in the canals? Is the water still high and muddy? Are the catfish biting any? Thanks a bunch!!

I am interested in putting out some yo-yo's in some of the canals off of Lake Verret. Has anyone had any luck with this? Would like to catch a few catfish and maybe some sac-a-lait while entertaining the kiddos. Thanks in advance!

I am thinking about making a trip down to the Leeville area tomorrow and was wondering if anyone had any reports they would mind sharing with me. I have never fished at this time of year and any tips would be greatly appreciated. My plan is to skirt the marsh areas and fish the cuts. Would this be a good idea? Thanks, guys, in advance.

I want to make a trip to the island this weekend for one last shot before hunting season starts. The kiddos have been after me to go. Would someone be willing to share any tips on specks or reds? Are the bull reds still in the passes? Any tips or opinions are greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Thinking about making a trip to Leeville tomorrow. Anybody know if the water clarity is ok from all the flooding?

I would like to try crabbing in the surf this weekend. Could someone tell me how to make a good crab trot line that stays put in the sand? Thanks a bunch!

I am taking the family to Grand Isle next month and would like to do some crabbing off the beach. Can someone give me some ideas on making/setting up crab lines?

I have an option to fish a couple weekends this month in Grand Isle during times with hardly any tide movement. Would I be better served staying home? Could I expect to find reds to the north in the marsh areas?

Will be making a quick trip to Lake Judge Perez tomorrow. Any tips or reports would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I am taking my fiancé on a fishing trip this weekend to the Lake Hermitage area. This will be my first time going and would like to put her on some redfish. Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am headed to Grand Isle Thursday through Sunday this week. All indications are that the winds will be kinda stout (10-15 mph). Any tips on fishing around the island, maybe the rocks on the back side, with conditions like those? Or should I re-schedule my trip. Thanks!

May 16, 2017 at 8:56am

Anyone reports on the bream and catfish action around Lake Verret and the canals? I am going later this week and was wondering if anyone's been lately.

April 25, 2017 at 10:34am

Can someone share some tips for fishing the Grand Isle/Leeville area during very windy days? I have a camp booked next week and the wind forecast looks very rough.

April 20, 2017 at 8:21am

Can someone tell me if the bream are biting in the Lake Verret area? I would like to take the kids this weekend.

I am renting a camp in Chauvin off Hwy 56 in a couple of weekends and would like to put the kids on some fish. I have never fished the area and would like some tips or spots to try. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Can someone tell me what the conditions are at Lake Verret? I want to take the kids fishing this weekend. If the water is high would jug lines or yo-yo's be a good choice? Thanks a bunch!

I made a quick trip last Friday morning to Lake Verret. Lake water was green, likely from an algae bloom...not good. I managed to find some big bream in the canals.

There is a private launch owned by Clay Boudreaux, if I remember correctly, and the fee was $10 when I launched last fall. His number is 504-208-5026.

He also has fishing cabins for rent on his property. Never rented them, but they look nice.

When I fish with cocahoes using a Carolina rig, I hook them through the lips and let the fish run with it for a few seconds...almost like fishing with a plastic worm for bass. This gives the fish time to swallow the cocahoe, increasing the chance for a positive hook-set.

Thanks. Any ideas where I should try? Not asking for honey holes or anything.

Did you go in the lake? I am thinking about putting in at the launch near Bayou Corne and fishing the canals. I noticed the water has been falling since last week.
