Got off of work a little bit early yesterday, and made a little rabbit hunt. Have'nt gotten to run my dog too much this year but as soon as we got out there she jump one up and ran it real good. She was running it for about thirty minutes and it was going in the opposite direction of where we…

Only 5 weeks away and getting ready for what I hope to be a very good turkey season. The winter storm last week destroyed a lot of my woods. The ice storm dropped trees down all over the place and we are spending time just clearing roads and making sure everything is ok. I hope the wildlife came…

Hulett and Jerry came down for a little fish therapy. We surely had to work for them! Funky water, and PLENTY of discourteous fishermen, made it a little challenging. I told the guys we would have to stay patient and patient they were! Later in the day, we had the Blue Wave Boats pointed north,…

A co-worker of mine has been doing good on the reds around the black river outlet West of the lighthouse. He's using a black split tail grub on a lead head bouncing off the bottom back to the boat. Hope this helps and good luck. Lake P had been peaceful lately with this hot weather.

I usually fish out of IDJC (island south of PAC) but am looking to scope out a new area and I have the Leeville area in mind. There is a kayak launch down there and it looks to have a lot of broken marsh options. I expect to get into some reds, but also hoping to get into some SPECs so my…

Used to love the summer, Mande. Fishing and baseball!!! Not any more. Too hot to enjoy fishing and getting up at 3am ain't fun either. Let's plan a night trip!

Any old veteran Duck hunters got any tips for identifying Do Gris vs. ring necks when in flight. I had close call last season, miss id'd a scaup for a ring neck, thankfully I wasnt over the limit of 2 do gris. It was a passing shot and damned if it didnt look the exact same as a ring neck to me.…

Ahh well i think a dosgris has a lil more white on the wing that a ringneck. Its just hard to tell there is no easy way around it really. Just remember dosgris are brackish water ducks and ringnecks are freshwater. So you almost never find ringnecks in salt marshes.

How do you make your king mackerel steaks?

I had Ronnie, his daughter Madison, and her boyfriend Brennan onboard. It was Brennan’s GOLDEN birthday and he enjoyed every minute of it! We found the silver mine! We got on a CRAZY bite, with the trout slamming our double rigged Matrix Shad and Deathgrip Jigheads. Cast out, let it sit, TAP TAP…

Wanted to go shoot some nutria, but the high tides didn't help, so we rabbit hunted.

My dog ran the rabbits non-stop all morning. She was definitely exhausted after since passed out the whole way home.

My dad and I accidentally only brought one shotgun so we didn't…

Glad to finally see some turkey poults running around. Not as many as I would like to see but better then last year. I have two hens showing up regularly one has two poults and the other has three. I continue to believe the biggest problem with the turkey population is the predators which I try my…

I was in Lacombe today in Bayou Des Mats. There are a lot of no trespassing signs in there. Does anyone know if this area is fishable? I'd like to be able to paddle thru to get to the bayou that leads to Lake Ponchartrain to the west.

Young Owen is just getting into fishing. His dad thought he would enjoy a saltwater fishing trip. Let’s just say he was HOOKED! Big smiles on his face reeling in all the fish! Double rigged matrix shad got the job done. Thanks Capt. Travis miller for setting things up. Give me a shout to get in…

Can someone tell me the pros and cons of a 26 inch barrel and a 28 inch barrel. Thinking of getting a new shotgun and cant decide which length barrel to get. thanks craig
Well I really dont think it matters, it might help if you are have a kid and need a shorter barrel. What really matters is the choke and not the barrel length.
