Went to one of my honey holes in the basin and caught a mess of fish on junebug brush hogs

I just bought a kayak for fishing, looking for some good fishing spots to launch from on the Northshore. Just moved to the Pearl River area last year, so I've fished Cane Bayou once and today Bayou Lacombe off of Main Street. I'm not having any luck. I'm a little frustrated, bc I've not fished…

Recap of a “Cajun Sleigh Ride”! This one lasted about 10 minutes. It was a nice red that I was able to sight cast to on a very foggy day. I initially thought it was a bit larger than it really was. It turns out that the lure went through its mouth and came out the gill. So it was…

I lost a nice one and was ready to give up on a very windy, cold, slow and shallow water morning. I kept pushing on and was able to land a nice slot.

My 3rd shakedown cruise on the 2019 Hobie Outback. It turned out to be an extremely windy day. I was lucky enough to grab a couple of nice trout and several small reds. Fighting the wind and current back to the launch was tough but the Outback performed well. I am trying to figure this new yak…

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.

A nice, quiet, and peaceful morning in Delacroix, La. is always a good thing. I was fortunate to hook up with a couple of green trout and reds on this brief trip.

A few highlights of a recent team tournament and the goal was the heaviest weight of 5 specks and 1 slot red. The heaviest weight of both team members would decide the winner. My partner got his 5 specks and 1 slot red. I pride myself in being able to find and catch reds but I am weak in the trout…

I've caught lots of big fish from the kayak, but a sailfish remains on my list. My friend Morgan Promnitz caught this one in Baja Mexico a while back. It was nice to be there to see and film it, but not quite the same as catching one yourself. One day...

I recently sold my old Kayak and went out to replace it looking for a great deal.

My budget was for below $500. I started online looking and found a Field & Stream 12' Eagle Run Kayak at Dick's for $474 that fit my needs.

I was looking for big capacity as I am 279 lbs and plan to carry…

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…

Looking to buy some crabs from lake pont.
Anyone catching in the lake?
Wanting for father's day.
Good luck on that. We went to a seafood market yesterday, and they wanted $70/dozen for live number one crabs. I think the world has gone mad. Needless to say, we will just catch our own.

Well, I haven't posted a good fishing story in a while....so, I think I'm overdue!

We were supposed to make the trip to Delacroix before the butt-crack of dawn on Saturday morning. But, as luck would have it, I was checking tire pressures Friday evening on the boat trailer and…

Please separate the fishing reports, putting the guides' reports under another title. Most of us can't fish everyday and we enjoy seeing the reports of the individual sport fishermen rather than that of the guides. Nothing wrong with reading the guides' reports and viewing the many…

CCAguns : wouldn’t hurt if a individual would just stop with all the How to clean a fish all the time , pretty sure there’s enough videos on YouTube that show every type fish there is to be clean & cooked !

Was not gonna bother with trying a Lake P trip,based upon predicted wind speed and direction and thought perhaps a T-Funky trip might be a decent plan B and had fairly low expectations once I saw flag at Bill Hood Chevy in Covington,looked like S winds were ripping at least 20 mph!!Got to…

CCAguns and I were finally able to get together(somewhat fortunate that Jesuit Alumni Rodeo postponed til 7 -17)and all we intended to accomplish was a 'shake-down' of his recently-serviced fine Kenner Bay Boat(serviced by Jeremy's Marine in Mandeville)and possibly scout some Rigolets…

Need a method for attaching to Rigs. Has anyone had experience with EZ Rig Hooks(no pole just hook/with release and line/suubber. For a 22FT Bay Boat. Or just use a nylon line?

This was the last fish I caught before I left Grand Isle. I caught it on a Berkley Gulp under a popping cork in the marsh west of Caminada Bay in 4 ft of water. I think it's a baby cobia, but could be mistaken. What do you think? Also, it's the only thing I'ver ever caught on a Gulp. Pretty…
