I would really like to get my hands on a 'good' pair of shrimp boots, low on the leg that would actually last more than a season. Wife says she's in for Xmas.Could anyone point her in the right direction on a good product.Price is not an issue,durabilty is. Anything close to BR. Thanks.
To all of us strange people that still go to 'The Pointe'. You don't need to go far. Go from 1st to second lake and turn right. Fish that whole shore and run through third lake down to Battleground to finish in reds.The trout are nice and everywhere. No WLF enforcement, but doing research on your catch. Beshels store is back up, no fuel,but beer.Tell Robert, Duttie, and Brian 'Hi'.
Going out Monday from Point a la Hache. Asking only because the pressure is on taking daughter.
Looking at hitting Pointe Fienne or Conservation camp. Two completely different runs on a falling tide. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Thanks in advance!
Does anyone know the status of Beshels Marina?
Is it launchable? Would like to head down there next week.Thanks!
Has anyone heard from or knows what is going on with Capt. Solar? I enjoy his book so much when I can't fish.
I have an ad on the site for a boat, motor, and trailer. I have had 6 calls, 6 discussions with directions and 6 no shows. What happened to common courtesy? I am completely disappointed in the 'me,just me' generation and will be glad to be gone from the planet when they only have each other. I remember the post of a guy that saw fish all day long on his new fishfinder and did not catch one. His question was should he return the fishfinder. Many will understand what I speak of and many will ask did he get full refund?
I was out fishing near the Conservation Camp in north Bay Gardene Sat around noon. Out of nowhere an armada of ten boats approached. Party barges with port-a-cans,flat boats,push boats, rental boats and you name it. Some beached and ran on to the east side of the island. Four ventured into a broken through area of the island and got stuck. My partner and I reeled up and watched for 45 minutes as they threw mud ravaging the area and killed our fishing. They left as quickly as they came. Does anyone have any idea what this was about or what they could have possibly been doing?
Anyone heard on Tony or Jimmy getting back to selling live shrimp?
Does anyone have any knowledge or Plaquemines parish contacts as to how long they intend to keep the diversions open on the east side? it seems to be more fresh every trip. Thanks for any info.
The US Coast Guard now offers a free check of your boat. It is called a VSC, Vessel safety check. They go over your boat bow-stern and you will not fail. They will give you pointers for free on how to make your rig safer. You will get a sticker to go near your reg numbers. With any luck the LDWF will see that you have had a CG inspection and will only want to see fish and jackets. It takes about 20 minutes and these guys are great. Please e-mail with any questions.This is a great opportunity for all.
Just wanted to let everyone know that if you need any fiberglass or gelcoat repairs in the Baton Rouge area. Call Mr. Bill Beatty at 225.791.0666 He is in Denham Springs. If you decide to tackle the job yourself, he can give you information and will sell you the necessary materials. He is very talented. I saw him transform an inboard into a twin outboard. Very honest, dependable person. I just bought supplies from him and he came to BR to save me the drive.
Does anyone know of a source for a good duck bill for a pushpole that will not corrode? I'm looking for one that might be galvanized,or stainless. I'm just tired of these cheap ones. I've cold galved and they just don't last in a salty environment. Any help would be appreciated.
Had a great weekend fishing Pointe a la Hache. Caught some really nice 18-20 inch trout.If you have never tried Bait-Buddies, you should. After about 4 hours, dropped in the tablets and you would think you had shrimp on cocaine. They were jumping all over and hard to put on a hook. Picked them up at Academy. Good price and well worth it for a long day on the water.
The WDF has a shrimp closure for 7/11. As much as I have read their site, I'm still lost. Can anyone tell me if I can legally pull my trawl to catch some bait at Pointe a la Hache and Breton Sound? Thanks!!!
Fished Pointe a la Hache Friday with live shrimp. Ran out to Stone Island,10 boats on the south side ,no bent rods.
Went to the west end and got on a slow bite. Pulled in 6 trout around 15-17". Another boat pulled in nearby, caught zip, and left. Ran back to Belle Island, picked up a few. Total catch 14. The river is still up and the water does not improve until Belle. Had some good reports from Bay Gardene, but otherwise, everyone burnt gas riding,from spot to spot passing those that left where they were going. The fish were nice and a good indicator of a great season to come, once the river drops.
Does anyone know the coordinates for the "old conservation camp" in Breton Sound
Can anyone tell me if the hoist is working at Beshels in Pointe a la Hache?
Can anyone tell me if the Manchac Lighthouse is still standing? Did it survive the storms? It has always been one of my daughters favorite places and I would like to run out there again. Any help would be appreciated
It seemed like anybody that had a rod showed up at Beshels in Pointe a La Hache Sat.am It was a great day to fish and I think most people caught a lot of trout. The hard falling tide caught some out plowing marsh. Gustav has made some changes. The reason I'm posting is that the Coast Guard offers a vessel safety check which is free. They inspect your boat and give you a sticker which is good for that year. They will come to you or you can meet them half way. This is a great service. When WLF pulls up and sees that the Feds have checked you they will probably just want to see your fish and you will really learn how to become a safer boater. http://www.safetyseal.net/GetVSC/ is the link to the site. I had my boat inspected Friday by Ken Munson of the Coast Guard Auxilary. I passed and was given some great ideas on how to make my rig even better. He was very reasonable and knowlegable. I highly recommend taking advantage of this opportunity.
Does anyone know of a commercial food to feed bass when stocking a lake. A friend is trying to stock his pond and has had good results with feeding them minnows and small bream, which he catches in a nearby creek. They don't seem to want dry dog food and he is looking for a product he can buy to feed them on a regular basis. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
