Fished PAC for the past 2 days. On day one I missed 4 nice reds and while sight casting I ran into a school of 3 big ones. They didn’t want anything to do with a plastic lure. Throughout the trip I was able to land 3 nice reds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgaKiUCnxZY
I have a Perception Pescador Pro 10.0. I know 10 feet is less than ideal, but I'm a college student on a budget, and it was easier to store than a 12 ft. So, as the title says, I'm looking for some places that can be accessed with my yak safely. I'm mostly looking to target specks right… View Full Report

The trout are moving back in. Hooked over 30 but only 15 were keepers. Most of them were caught with vudu shrimp under a cork (aka vudencork). However, most of the larger trout were caught with a shadow rap. After the sun came up I went looking for reds but was only able to land 1… View Full Report
Pointe Aux Chenes was pretty much wiped out from Hurricane Barry about a month ago. This is a quick recap of my first trip there since then. I was lucky to get on a few rat reds and see how well the area has recovered in just a short amount of time.
Here in Lafayette there is a company that setup demo days that you can try different types of kayaks out at lake Martin call Pack and Paddle, I know it is not in Baton Rouge But Not too far away and the people are very helpful and friendly.
I made a trip to the Pensacola area over the weekend to do some kayak tarpon fishing off of the beach. Friday morning was dead calm with lots of activity. After quickly catching about a dozen Leatherjacks and a couple Thread-fin for live bait bait, we began trolling just outside of the second bar.… View Full Report
I was lucky enough to have a steady bite and pull in a few rats. Missed just as many if not more. I started to get frustrated because I was missing so many hook ups so I decided to call it a day. After I finished this edit I noticed I had my hat on backwards during the whole trip. Maybe that's… View Full Report

This is the 3rd and final trip of fishing some marsh around Delacroix this past week. Like the previous 2 trips, I was able to land a few rats. I was also able to land 2 nice slots and even miss a 3rd. An in-line spinner and an old school grub worm bass lure were the tickets.
This is the second day of a trip into Delacroix. Like the previous day, the expectation was more rat reds and that was correct. I was mostly using one of my smaller rigs since it helps to emphasize how tough these smaller fish can fight. I did… View Full Report
Unfortunately, we don't have but a coupe of places close enough to reach tarpon in Louisiana, But they are as close as the panhandle area of Florida and even the Gulf Shores Alabama area off of the beaches. They are on their way now and will be along the beaches throughout the summer.
Made a trip to the marsh in Hopedale last week and found some nice reds and a bunch of small trout. Reds were along the grass lines and hammered the weedless gold spoon. Found schools of small trout around Lake Ameda, but most were undersize. Avocado sparkle beetle and chartreuse Gulp about 18'… View Full Report
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...
