I never hire a guide. I figured I would learn more just doing it and going my own way. However the local idea I like. I normally would go to Golden Meadow and fish Port Fourchon. Years ago when I lived in Abbeville, I'd go intercoastal and out the bay to the game wardens camp for flounder if tide was slow. This time I'm bringing my own boat since my buddy doesn't go to his camp except weekends and his boys done guided me enough to where I know a few holes, but I'm wanting to try and find my own holes. This time though I'm staying in Houma and want to fish Cocodrie and other spots around Dulac etc.
Now offshore, that's a different story but I learned last year I can't take the waves after 13 heart surgeries. It's just too much on my chest with a pacemaker too. Legs are shot, but I can still use them even if I can't feel them, just ain't steady but got a good boat and got it handicap outfitted so I'm good.
For those posting pics and videos, I really appreciate it. I've really missed living in Louisiana since moving away in 87 but I've still got my coonass passport somewhere LOL.
and whoever that was that gave me detailed info on how to get into Catfish Lake - thank you SO much as I definitely want to explore the area. So watch out for a disabled TN AF vet coming your way for 4 trips in the next 2 months :)
