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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

2nd day at PAC. Nothing big today, mostly rats. Wound up catching 3 on a spoon and 3 on an in-line spinner with a H&H cocahoe. Here’s a few highlights.

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.

Awesome video blackfishmatt! I’ve never fished from a yac before, looks like a blast. Great job videoing your solo trip.

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…

Plan on launching at Attakapas Landing and fish the cypress trees around the landing.

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…

Would like to rent or try a kayak before buying one.
Any suggestions.

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.

The tarpon didn't want to play, but James Kellum managed to catch a couple spinner sharks while trolling off the beach in the kayak.

He did have a little moment when holding one next to the kayak and it went a bit crazy. lol
