This is how we do it in Texas..May not be able to keep as many but we sure dont keep those 12 inch trout and little redfish like LA does...

You really should catch some big fish before you post something like that! What a joke!!!!

Browse through the reports and read those from Lake Ponchatrain or Venice. Then maybe go fishing Venice and let me know how big the reds are. And if the reds here are so small, why do the Redfish cup guys often run three hours to LA only to fish one hour?

Maybe I'm missing something, but I'm going to defrost a pack of 3+ pound Lake P. trout an fry em up now. Bye Bye.

ok
this coming from the guys who think catching a trout flounder and red in the same trip is a great accomplishment!!!! i'm surprised he's not bragging about the size of the black drum they are catching.....

you enjoy eating those big nasty redfish full of red meat while i snack on my sweet tasting 16.5 inchers!!!!

take your negative post back back to the rest of the fruitcake 2coolers.

12 inch trout and 16 inch reds are da best size to eat..If everything is sooo much better over there then why are there so many
Texas boats in Calcasieu? Heard a lot of Texas estuaries are slipping with dwindling #'s..

Im sure there are some good fish in LA...to bad the guys making the posts cant catch any of them...and you would be a fool to run from TX to LA for a redfish tournament..You guys catching the 12in trout should just get some dead shrimp and fish for croakers..probably more meat on them..and the only pics i see of black drum are from louisiana

Texas trout
I'm from La. and lived in Texas for 15yrs after getting out the service. I fished from C.C. bay to Bay City and never had the catches we do from Lake Pontchatrain to Venice. And as for Redfish I had an Uncle from Bay City that would drive from there to here pulling his boat just for our R.F. I'm not anti-Texas, I loved it there. But before you talk crap come try it with the guys who know where to fish. Charter are the same here as they are there. And when you do make sure sure to leave the Shiner and bring the Lone Star.

Some comments you keep to yourself!
See here is where you messed up: By comparing LA and saying crap like what we do BLAH BLAH BLAH......The ppl on here are willing to help/congradulate any catch no matter where it is from if worded in a "sportsman like manner"!!! We are here to help not put down or play childish games like you are trying to promote! Pretty much those types of comments are childish and immature......Id stop while you can! Im done!

Louisiana troutzillas
If the fishing in Texas is so good, how come the limit is lower than in Louisiana.....hmmmmmmm, maybe because they don't have as many fish....less fish means less quality. There is no doubt that once in a blue moon they pull a nice fish out of Laguna Madre but there is no comparison to Venice or Big Lake. The people in Louisiana have thrown more quality fish back than you aggies have ever caught.

P.S. Next time, keep those trout alive so we can use them for live bait.

Wow, what an ignorant comment. Louisiana without a doubt has the best coastal fishing in the south. All we catch are 12 inch specks and 16 inch reds? You have got to be kidding me. Go watch one of the LSM Tv episodes. Huge redfish are caught in Louisiana all the time. I happen to have glanced at the website 2coolfishing, wich is a Texas fishing forum. It seems to me as though people fishing the Texas coast don't do as well as we do over here. There was really no need to call us Louisiana fisherman out. Anyways, nice catch on the specks and reds.

Gimme a break!!
Buddy i fish Lake Ponchartrain 2-3 times a week and make a catch like that pretty much every other trip with many of my trout bigger.

For the record that's a nice catch but it ain't nothing special. Like i said i make a similar catch weekly as alot of guys do, in fact half the time i don't even post it.

I suggest you get back on the Texas Sportsman website, even though i'm sure its pretty boring which is why you had to come here!!

r u kidding?
First off, I lived in TX and the fishing is a joke compared to over here. I caught that limit in Ponchartrain this past weekend! lol

Second if you hate LA so much then why are representing a fantastic brand of boats made in the HEART OF TIGER COUNTRY! Go-Devil!

Catch limits daily, i guess u do what is it like 10 specks and 2 reds, lol. I could do that at the boat launch..

The reason he never posted before is cuz this is his first catch that was worthy of it in his eyes!!

Caught em in LA????
I'll bet you launched on the Texas side and ran across to the Louisiana shoreline to catch those fish. That's what 90 plus percent of the Texas anglers do. If your fisheries management is so good, why do all you Texicans have to come to LA to catch fish? I also see a lot of you in Calcasieu Lake. What's up with that.

It is my first post on here..i usually just look at the pics of big trout. Havent seen many lately so i posted a pic and now yall think i hate LA..My only point i was trying to make is that we have more quality fish..Look at the record books..Why does our trout have to be 8 lbs to enter into CCA? Our 10 trout are more total inches than your 15..And lets see how many of your guides or anyone else would be catching 75-100 keepers that they post pics of if they had to be 15 inches..Our fish live longer and have the chance to get bigger because of our rules and regulations..So get the mudbugs out of your panties because my post shouldnt have offended any of you..

stupid looking hat
bet you are the one wearing the hat. thanks for insulting us with the comment about our little 12 inch trout and 16 inch reds. some of us keep them because they are the best ones to eat and we release the larger ones to spawn. next time post on the texas site because we really don't want to hear your comments.

YIPEEE
Come on guys lighten up on em its obvious they ride the short bus. Really though to be that excited over a few trout and reds shows they don't catch that many.Thats probaly the trip of a lifetime to a fisherman in our big sister state to the west!!

Hey flatboat, i probably caught more fish last month than you have in your lifetime...And for you "Butch" im not the one in the hat..We could out fish any of you any day of the week..Keep catching your minnows..the people saying the small ones taste better just havent caught any big ones yet..Keep up the fishing and oneday you might get lucky and be able to post a pic on this website...if you start fishing in Texas...haha

joke
The real joke is you caught them in a lake that is a La lake also and you are trying to claim the fish you caught as Texas fish. I can assure everyone here those fish dont distinguish between the La and Tx border. They swim the whole lake. In otherwords even if you caught them on the Tx side its still a fish swimming a Louisiana water.

Go further West and claim em.

Not a bad haul for a little Texas trip, but the amount and size of fish in that picture isn't even a light snack for me. That picture wouldn't even be worth taking in my boat hawse. Glad you had a good time.

P.S. There is a reason people come from Texas to go on speck/red charter trips here. There is also a reason why no one from this state goes to Texas to charter a trip.

We had 11 trout over 20 inches with 3 of those being in the 24 inch range..I dont know how big you are but thats a pretty good snack where i come from...

Whoah Whoa.... Now I wasn't gonna say anything here, but you talking alot of smack from a catch like that. I'll be making a trip to Laguna Madre next year let me guess you fish with Capt. Matt and Capt. Brett on Baffin Bay and you fish corky's highly doubt it brother but I'll be down their next late winter wadin in it bro. You notice none of the guides have stooped to your level hear by commenting. Come down to Hopedale watch 100 trout hit the table by many almost 7 days a week down here this time of year, come to Venice watch the table fill before you wake up for breakfast brother. and come to Lake P. and learn to catch what you got on that table there. Brother I advise you to stay your reports, and smack in Texas. Speckle trout is the most targeted species in Louisiana. Words of advice never come to a La Sportsman site an challenge any Big Lake, Lake P. or Venice guys or anyone not a good idea.

I'm done!!!

Hey, Texas Hillbilly, you want to see limits of 125 slabs. Go to www.oughttobefishing.com and check out the pics in the photo gallery from the last few days. He is a friend of mine.

Wasnt trying to start a fight on here...just wanted someone to admit the truth that TX produces the fish..I could go out and catch 1000 12in trout any week...Our fishing over here has been the best in years...We have caught more fish over 25 inches in the last to months than i have ever seen..We catch limits that average 19-20 inches all the time..We catch reds from 25-28 everytime we go out...sorry if anything i said offended anyone on here...just trying to have a little fun...

Funds expected for tests on bay fish

By Marty Schladen
The Daily News
Published February 21, 2005

Funding is on tap from two sources to test seafood taken from mid and lower Galveston Bay.

The news comes after the Texas Department of State Health Services last month issued a warning that speckled trout taken from the upper bay was contaminated with PCBs. The state also renewed a 15-year-old advisory that catfish and blue crabs taken in the same area were contaminated with dioxin.

Both contaminants are industrial chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, infertility, blood disorders, brain damage, lung disease, kidney disease and other illnesses.

Under both advisories, consumers are warned to limit themselves to 8 ounces or less of the seafood from the area a month. Children and women of childbearing age are warned to abstain altogether.

Last week, officials with the state health department said the warning did not extend beyond the Houston Ship Channel and the upper bay because they had inadequate data to make such a determination elsewhere.

Tout killer you are right the fishing is better in Texas. I wish this statement was true because to be quiet honest I am tired of seeing soo many goofy looking flat boats in Calcasieu. Please convince your hundreds of fellow Texans about you way of thinking. I know a couple of guys from Texas that would disagree though. One caught two 10's in the same week ( cover of LA sportsman) why didn't he just stay in Texas and catch those big fish?

Aight Trout Death,, first off i catch my limit of 20" plus trout in Lake P all the time.. As Iceman said below go to www.oughttobefishing.com, He caught 100 just Friday and does it all the time.

Second u come on here and talk a bunch a smack about 30 trout and say that u don't catch small ones and rag on LA fisherman, and now u wonder why we are ticked and u are acting like the little innocent guy. It seems that you are ignorant as you are fat. These guys here would smoke any of u anytime so until you can show something better than this one catch of 30 i suggest u quit embarrasing yourself by being such a tool-bag, oh and please get the hell off this site..

calm down!!!
I cant believe yall are letting these guys from TX get under your skin. All he was doing is showing their catch from the other day which is pretty dang impressive whether you live in TX or LA....and the remark about the 12in trout is true because we all know that we are not fishing in the summer heat to try to fill our boat with 12in fish. we all want the solid 19 to 22 inch trout with the occasioal 28in plus which is the reason we are all out there. I can see both sides to this cause i grew up fishing Sabine Lake and Big Lake and I have caught big trout in both spots.....NICE CATCH TX BOYS!!!!!
