November 10 at 11:18am

well the boat finally hit the dust today while out fishing. need a boat mechanic recommendation for a yamaha outboard 2 stroke engine on the westbank of new orleans.

Limit specks in lafitte. One matrix shad lemon drop under cork. Wind was brutal.

Just a tidbit of info for those using the belle chasse ferry. the big ferry is in for repairs for about 8 months(according to the operator friday). they are running a smaller ferry now and it may transport 1-2 boat at a time. Report: took a short trip Fri afternoon and found some specks in wreck bay. Too windy to fish anywhere else. And Errol if u read this give me a call, I lost your contact number.

Plan on fishing east pt alahache this saturday on my boat. Regular partner is busy anyone want to join?

August 20, 2014 at 10:47am

Some info for the snapper fisherman. Went fishing the rigs out of empire sat and we were fishing at some of the rigs 7-8 miles south of jetties. Caught a good bit of red and mangrove snappers. Was boarded by wildlife out there and they did their inspections and wasnt concerned about the snappers that we had.

We are used to seeing good reports but i guess bad reports are just as valuable. Two of us attempted to fish MG yesterday. Points in bay chene, shoreline of bay jimmy, and points in Magnolia marsh. One throwback trout. Only good thing about trip was there was no cleanup. Wondered if anybody else did any better. Dont know whats wrong with the waters around there but its been a miserable couple of trips out of MG. Starting to think I need to switch directions and launch out of the Pt even before fall hits.

May 05, 2014 at 10:28am

got an open spot on my bayboat this saturday for fishing Myrtle Grove if anyone is interested. Email me.

March 20, 2014 at 8:49pm

Anyone the status of Delta Marina in Empire. Is it still open since Ive heard rumors of it being auctioning off and if it is open is there live bait there.

August 01, 2013 at 1:27pm

Regular fishing buddy busy this Sat. Seeing if anyone wants to join me this sat. fishing out of Myrtle Grove in my boat. Email me.

March 28, 2013 at 11:41am

Well its time to replace trailer tires. Just seeing what everyone is running on there trailers and where to get it in New Orleans. Want something thats gonna last more than 1 year, because it seems Im replacing tires every year. This is for a single axle trailer.

March 20, 2013 at 9:39am

Fished the pt Sat. Couple specks in
second bay and couple reds in wreck. Decided
to see what it was like in black bay. Wrong
decision as the rollers made for bumpy ride. At
least the boat can take it. Water looked pretty
stained on inside and was still cold. Maybe 2-3
weeks and it should be on.

March 11, 2013 at 9:44am

Got an open spot on the boat if some one wants to fish Pt ala HAche this Saturday.

November 13, 2012 at 8:29pm

Got a question for those familar with Delacroix. Was wondering can you run that pipeline canal from grand point bay north to 4 horse lake. I see it on google maps and pass it up while fishing the Pt but always wondered if I can actually run in it. A report from Saturday. Was able to haul out 37 trout and around 10 whites while fishing Bay Law and Battleground Bay. Most of it caught under birds. Gulps under a cork.

October 22, 2012 at 9:26am

With snapper season around the corner, was wondering how far out of empire jetties would I have to run for snapper. Remember going with friend last year and didnt seem too far. Only taking bayboat out so the closer, the better. I've done it out of venice but really didn't want to run all the way down there for a couple of snapper tugs.

May 14, 2012 at 9:50am

Got a question about fishing Black Bay during this time of year. Never fished it during winter. Would there be sheepshead and bull reds out under the platforms in Black Bay this time of the year. If the fishing doesn't pan out this weekend in Pt. A La Hache, with the predicted forecast, thinking about heading out to the rigs in BlackBay to soak some shrimp unless its gonna be a wasted trip.

January 11, 2012 at 1:59pm

Any body want to fish the Biloxi Marsh this Saturday? Got a 19 foot bayboat. Send me an email.

November 17, 2011 at 11:26am

Fished the Pt today. Caught fish at every stop. Second, wreck, battleground, island, american. Problem was that it was only 1-2 fish. Did hit a point loaded with big reds to get the limit. Ended up with around 13 trout, 5 reds, and even a green trout.

October 23, 2011 at 5:46pm

On the subject of boat trailer lights and was wondering is it required by law to have that strip of three smaller lights that is usually mounted near the middle on the rear frame between the two turn lights.

September 28, 2011 at 11:10am

Wondered if anybody has any ideas whats happening at the jefferson canal launch in Magnolia past myrtle grove launch. Went driving on 23 last weekend and saw that it was baricaded off. That was where I launched last year while fishing on the westbank.

and if u dont know where oak river is just run down the pencil canal until u see the armada of boats. Cold weather will concentrate these fish in certain deep holes

shimano stradic ci4 3000 with a 7.2 medium action rod. I like a gloomis greenwater. One combo for all. when it gets a little windy i dont even use the baitcaster unless i am drifting and casting into the wind. also this time of the year when i hooking onto lots of dinks, i like to use a screw lock jighead, otherwise im fidgeting withthe bait after every hookup.

charter captains buy equipment that fit a certain price point. they are not going to go out and spend money on g loomis rods and high end st croix rods ( which i consider to be great rods) for every day use by their customers.

A comment titled: Re: Best trout reels? in response to a report titled: Best trout reels?

shimano stradic ci4 3000. perfect reel for fishing the marsh and bays. light and powerful. find a used one for around 150. i know its alittle outside of your budget, but withthe amount of time and money we waste on this passion, 150 is a kick in the bucket for a great reel.

A comment titled: Re: Reggio Fishing in response to a report titled: Reggio Fishing

There should only be one reason why u cant find fish this time of the year in Delacroix. if this is your first trip and u are not familar with the area. Delacroix is one of the easiest areas around to find fish, especially in the fall. I mainly fish on the westbank but if i wanted to go catching then im either launching at delacroix or pt ala hache.

A comment titled: Re: Reggio Fishing in response to a report titled: Reggio Fishing

as in reggio near delacroix. Are u after specks and reds cause they should be close to being on fire there now.

A comment titled: Re: Trout in lafitte yet? in response to a report titled: Trout in lafitte yet?

They were in basa basa and caminada bay 2 weeks ago. by now i would imagine they are in Hackberry and south end of bay dos gris and coffee bay. Or at least that is where i would start. As for baits, I fish one bait all year long, matrix shad lemonhead on a screw lock jig. Basically only bait i carry in boat. There was a report here last week that birds were working in little lake.

A comment titled: Re: Basic GPS/Depth Finder in response to a report titled: Basic GPS/Depth Finder

i bought a used boat that had a 5 inch screen lowrance. great unit but kinda small, instead of replacing it with a bigger unit i just mounted a 10 inch tablet running navionics on the side. I like it so much more that the regular chartplotter it works double duty as it has all my music on there.

A comment titled: Re: White Trout explosion! in response to a report titled: White Trout explosion!

i couldnt outrun the whites last week out of lafitte. problem was they were the 8-10 inch variety. Was fun though.

September 26 at 3:18pm

the information is out there, u just need to decipher it. Even when the guides post, u can get cues as to where the fish are in relation to the spots they mention. If u want specks now they are still close to outside, thats where i have been finding them for the last 2-3 weeks ( doenst matter if its hopedale, dleacroix, or lafitte) and from my records after this front this week, u can start in the middle bays. I wont start to look in the inner bays or what is considered winter spots until Thanksgiving. So from now until thanksgiving im hitting all my mid bay spots. If u want specific spots u are just going to have to hire a guide.

A comment titled: Re: Labor Day weekend trip in response to a report titled: Labor Day weekend trip

i would have to agree, if there was ever a weekend to fish this would be it. The bays havent been pressured for about a week now, and following storms have always been some of my best fishing trips.

A comment titled: Re: Lafitte, La fishing in response to a report titled: Lafitte, La fishing

thanks for the feedback, gonna hit it this week for labor day weeked. The trout may also have moved into hackberry. with this weather system

A comment titled: Re: Lafitte, La fishing in response to a report titled: Lafitte, La fishing

great video. guess i got head that way for some reds. Been running all the way to hackberry and basa basa for trout last 3 outings.

A comment titled: Re: Which one to buy? in response to a report titled: Which one to buy?

what u need is a gps and a membership in sea tow. u can get anice used unit for 3-400 dollars, itll also have the depthfinder. kill 2 birds with one.

A comment titled: Re: Big enough bay boat in response to a report titled: Big enough bay boat

i used to take my 19 ft baystealth offshore up to 10 miles all the time mainly during the summers for snapper. had to have calm seas though. Less than 2 ft. with any bayboat u have to be selective with your days. Most of the days we dont plan offshore until we get to the end of the jetties. The boats can take it. it was self bailing so any water coming in just flowed out. The passengers not so much in high seas.

A comment titled: Re: Fishing With No Tide Movement in response to a report titled: Fishing With No Tide Movement

there will always be fish. tide or not. just got to know where to find them to increase your odds. if i waited for perfect conditions, ill never be able to fish.

A comment titled: Re: New to Lafitte and Looking for Spots in response to a report titled: New to Lafitte and Looking for Spots

which one is nicks marina. for consistent trout this time of year u got to go to at least hackberry bay and further south like basa basa or even better to the surf in grand isle. will also help to have live bait.
