Anyone know the agency that controls/determines the water level of Henderson Lake?

What tide table do you use for Bayou Black/Gibson from the La Sportsman tide charts??

I just wanted to thank Louisiana Sportsman for the great job of covering this tournament, the Bassmaster Open out of Berwick. Not as much coverage as The Classic, but still great.

Anyone know if you can run Postillion Bayou ( in the Spillway ) from the Intercoastal or is it silted up at the mouth of Postillion?

The water level on the Pelba gauge at Henderson is 6.5 feet. Can I launch between I-10 or do I need to launch on the west side?

October 06, 2016 at 8:58pm

Heard a rumor their is going to be another draw down on Henderson. True or false.

Made a trip to Bayou Sorrel yesterday. Biting fish were hard to find. A tug pushing a barge went down the canal between the pumping station and the nine mile canal (or whatever the name is) paralleling the pipeline, turning the water to a gray mixture. Went down the canal half hour later, dying bait fish along with a few small game fish were on the surface. I would avoid the area if possible.

Looking to get a 3 bank on-board battery charger. What brand do you have and what brand would you NOT recommend?

July 03, 2015 at 5:00pm

Looking to get my boat wrapped. Anyone in Louisiana does this?

June 29, 2015 at 7:59pm

Does anyone have some phone numbers for buying shrimp off the docks at Morgan City or anywhere along the coast?

June 21, 2015 at 2:36pm

Henderson lake has dropped 1.5 feet in the past 4 days. The lake was dropping an inch a day. Anyone know why they are dropping the level so fast? At this rate the launch under the interstate will be basically unusable by the weekend.

Looking to buy fresh shrimp from a boat/shrimper or wholesale merchant below I-10. Looking to purchase 100 plus pounds of shrimp.

Any one having problems getting current river gauges from the weather site? I put my cursor on weather, nothing drops down to select.

June 02, 2014 at 9:20am

Topic - Big Alabama. Is there a real time water level gauge on this web site, any web site? If not, what Atchafalaya River gauge would you use to determine rising water/flooding? When the water rises in Big Alabama, where does it enter in? Bayou Deglaze?

There is an ad on this site, Al Franken wanting you to sign a petition. Just wondered if anyone actually would sign any petition siding with Al Franken? If so, what were you thinking?

March 17, 2013 at 9:30pm

Does anyone know if any of the boat launches on False River are back open? Have made a few phone calls to public officials, no one knows nothing about anything. Can't find the phone number to the LA express on the south end. Got to wet a line.

January 23, 2013 at 8:13pm

Anyone know of any fish killed in the Atchafalaya Spillway and on the Verret side?

September 03, 2012 at 8:41pm

Does anyone know of any maps of the Red River with the names of ponds, etc, like Mcdade, Bobo, Whitehouse, Wagon Wheel, Little Monkey, Dozier slough, Beehive Point, etc. I have a Corp map of the river, but it has no names on most areas. Looking for this info mostly on Pools 3, 4, and 5.

March 04, 2012 at 3:22pm

Anyone been to Tickfaw, Natalbany River lately. Looking to bassfish but anything that bites will do.

May 07, 2011 at 10:21pm

Been catching 10 to 20 throwbacks for 1 keeper. Spinnerbaits the last couple of weeks. Wind determines were you can or cannot fish. Fish seem to move day to day. Water a little high, stained to muddy. Water color hasn't made much of a difference. You have to move alot to locate some that want to bite.

May 04, 2011 at 8:56pm

If you are talking about bar pits between the levee and the river, they are all posted as far as I know. It has been that way for 30 plus years.

Judging from the Pelba gauge at Henderson, the lock is closed. The lake fell 3 feet in 5 days. That's a lot of water flowing under the Butte LaRose bridge. Had to be dangerous.

Correct me if i'm wrong. A possession limit is two days creel. So for TB, that would be 16 fish total, per person. Doesn't matter if you fish for 2 days or a week. Still, 2 day creel.

A comment titled: Re: Where to fish???? in response to a report titled: Where to fish????

Bayou Black, Wax Lake, Old River or False River. With the draw down on False River, the fish should be concentrated to a smaller area. Are you MAN enough for the challenge, lol.

Was wondering if anyone has ever eaten a Manatee? Wondering if it would be easy to clean? Do they eat vegetation or do they feed on live bait, etc.

Ice them down. If you are catching smallmouth, you are a long way from Louisiana.

Water WAS dropping over the weekend. A slight rise starting today. Some are/were catching, many not so well. Looking at your log book and water levels should give you a good clue. No log book, time to start one.

Nice fish. What body of water?

June 12 at 9:42pm

Safe to eat. Probably yes. The big difference is taste. Catfish from the Mississippi and Amite River are day and night. The meat is gray and white.The farther north up the Mississippi, the fish IS better tasting than below Baton Rouge.

I wonder, is the water low enough to get under the bridge along the levee?

Co.mark, the part of the Teche I'm referring to is between the Atchafalaya River and the Wax Lake outlet. TGXDMan, are you referring to this area of the Teche or outside the locked area?

Bayou Teche. It never gets too high or muddy.

All rivers from Baton Rouge east to the state line are productive under stable water conditions.Like any body of water, it takes time to learn them. Pick one or all. Keep a log of trips.. Use tide table and USGS Water Data for Louisiana table for best results. Patterns will develop over time.

So PJ what did the police tell you when you called about this so called illegal dumping? Did they LOL or are they still ROFLTAO? PS, I live/have camps on waterways. If the fish/turtles/gators,etc eat it, it goes in the water. No one has yet to complain.

I would have thought pond fish would have spawned well before fish in natural bodies of water in the area.

It is 10 miles from Hwy 1 to the landing. Any idea mileage wise where the bad pot holes are? Or are there too many to count?

Have you been back to that area since the water is rising?
