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…

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…

If you wanna sell your pups it would be better to put your add in the classified section , instead of the Hot Report Section, sportsman wanna read about hunting and fishing reports not dogs for sale .

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 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.

For the past month and a half I just can’t seem to catch any slot reds. On this trip I was back in Delacroix to explore some deeper holes that I had heard about. I even brought my depth finder (which is useless in Delacroix) since I made a route to the spots I wanted to fish. When I got to the…

Why are they priced at around $1,200 at Cabelas in Gonzales? Is it a different model? I don't remember the size of the ones at the store...

I haven’t fished Delacroix in quite some time so that was my purpose this morning. I wanted to explore an area that has been on my radar for a few months now. When I got there I found stagnant dirty water and I am not sure why. Dirty by Delacroix standards but still fishable. After about an hour…

My cousin and I fished out of Bason’s Marina this morning. We were on the water for about 6am and we’re hoping to get into some redfish at day break because we knew the tide wasn’t going to be too significant. It was a slow start although the sunrise (as always) was gorgeous. We were both…

Heading out in the morning to launch out of the GI kayak launch. Planning to explore the rock jetties just north of the launch and then the marsh/island just North of it. This will be my first time fishing this area. I was thinking of launching out of sand dollar and heading to Isle Grand Terre…

I am picking up a 2017 Chevrolet Equinox next week that DOES NOT have any factory installed roof runners, which is a bummer. I researched some “naked” roof rack options and found some on etrailer.com (Rhino-Rack) but lawd they are expensive (~$500). Does anyone have some more budget friendly…

Alrighty folks...I got ourselves booked on GI for a Fathers Day weekend trip with my son and cousin. Got us a single room motel that we will pile into and hopefully get into some fishing action. I’ll be spending the next week or so looking at maps and planning our assault (not really...there…

Hello folks. I’m looking for some tips for getting on the trail of some speckled trout (from my kayak). Father’s Day will be soon upon us and my son and I usually get a chance to get away for some fishing; however, this year I would like to change our tradition and ACTUALLY CATCH SOME FISH. …

Let the good times roll! I went back to same general area as my last trip. It started out the same way- a puppy drum on one of my first cast. Then it was on… a nice bull and a few slots. Then I got stung by a Transformer. After that- it was nothing but misses. Still another good…

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…

This was one strange trip. Once I got to the area I wanted to fish I started out with a curly tail grub worm and immediately nabbed a puppy drum. After that, there were no takers for about an hour. I swapped over to a “BSOD” and had 0 hits after about 25 casts. I then changed over to a…

The go to spoon! When you get in that situation again, try a 1/2 oz chartreuse rattle trap. Good fishing.

I decided to give the reds a break and took the yak up the bayou for some catfish. Old school fishing- worms under a cork won me a few nice meals.

I decided to explore and fish some areas of PAC that for whatever and unknown reason, I have been avoiding. After getting there- and to my surprise, I got on a few rats and a couple of decent slots. Here’s a few highlights:

It was a nice and peaceful morning in Delacroix. Blind casted for a little while with no success. I pulled up close to a pond and heard bait being chased down. I didn’t see any tails but I could see larger silhouettes chasing small schools of minnows. Made a cast into the pond and got a nice…
