Baton Rouge: Saltwater Fishing Group

Reply
 
I've noticed that there are plenty of fellow saltwater fishermen that live in Baton Rouge, but I don't see any group for sharing much needed information. Since we have a long drive wherever we go, it would be good if we could coordinate, and not blow a weekend on the wrong location. I would start a Facebook group or whatever it takes. Some towns even have weekly fishing seminars/meetings. If Baton Rouge fishermen had a monthly chat, that would be an improvement. Tight lines gentlemen!

Yup, good idea. I went to Dularge yesterday from Watson, 2.5 hour drive 1 way. It was first trip there in the last 6 months as I needed a change from fishing Leeville lately. It is amazing how much land loss there it just in this short time frame. Several islands I regularly fish are gone or nearly gone. You have to rethink your spots every trip for landmarks. Caught reds that were too big or too small, few nice specs and a ton of stingrays. Wind really kicked up and pounded my small boat so headed in bout 1.

I went ahead and made a group. I'm not sure how I'll spread the word though. https://www.facebook.com/groups/884914611669168/?ref=group_header

Great idea. Price of gas going up, not much time off and need to be more productive.
