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…

Day 2 with the Loves from Kentucky. It was a little windier, but the fish didn’t seem to mind. We checked out a few areas that I typically like to fish later in fall. We didn’t find as many fish but they had some nice fish mixed in. We kept picking away and ended up with another nice box of…

I'm hoping someone can give me some advice for getting on some fish on the northshore or even somewhere within decent driving distance of Mandeville.

My dad has a hobie kayak that he lets me borrow whenever I want, and I've decided I should get some more use out of it. I've…

Day 1 with Mike and Mike JR. from Kentucky. The guys drove in, to fish with me, on a 4 day adventure. They got some nice, quality sleep at the REEL INN Dularge and were primed up for the first day. These guys live to fish and wanted to get some huge bulls. We hit the trout first and then finished…

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…

I had the Morales family onboard. These guys fish hard, so they were right at home slinging in speckled trout and yanking on bull reds. We hit various areas and made lots of stops and the guys loaded down the cooler with nice speckled trout and some nice whites. We made a few stops and they each…

I used to post my reports in the Bayou Coast Kayak Fishing Club forum. Now that BCKFC has basically abandoned its website and forum to cater only to social media (FakeBook), I will try to post here in Louisiana Sportsman in hopes of stirring up the interest of fellow kayak fishermen! For those…

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…

It's been about almost two months since I went to the lake from Theriot Boat Launch. Last time I went the entrance to the lake was almost completely blocked by a small floating island and a mass of lilies. I barely made it through into the lake. I guess there is no maintenance by the parish…

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…

I recently obtained a free boat trailer from a friend (legally) but he does not have any registration papers for it. Does anyone know if I can get a license plate for this trailer without any registration papers.
Thanks in advance…………….
