I fished with the Phil Robichaux fishing charters crew today. We fished with them just over a month ago and we had a great day putting 100 trout in the box. Well, this morning was a really good morning also. We ran south and hit a shell bar and we started putting some really good trout in the boat. Throwing Chart. Ghost Minnows under a cork the action remained steady until a big squall ran us back in to the dock at 11am. By that time we had put 73 trout with all of them over 16 inches in the box plus 3 nice reds for good measure.
Between Capt. James Wilson, with his ridiculous knowledge of these fish, and Capt. Lane Zimmer with these GHOST MINNOWS, Lafitte should be the new 'Du', anytime soon

New to the Bow game , and before I hear it a million times, I kno PRACTICE, and lot of it, Im looking more for set up of stand, good places to look on almost anyones land, we hunt a small tract of land, pines and hardwood sloughs, lots of thickets , ridges and drop off creeks, and backs up to the tickfaw, one of the hardest places ive hunted, pre season cleaning doesn't help at all, everything grows back thicker,im just looking for tips pointers, basic knowledge, down to the smallest details, knowledge is a powerful thing in a mans quest for game.

thanks guys

We left Seaway Marina at Safelight with Capt. James, of Phil Robichaux Charters, we wanted to catch some speckled trout and thats what we did.We crossed Little Lake yesterday morning and it wasn't to bad with the 15mph winds.Hit the trout spot and it was on.We were catching them real good till the wind jumped up over 25mph. We had 50 in the box and had to work for the last 50. Butwe picked away at them and we finished the day with our 100 trout limit plus one lone redfish.

Beyond worth every penny!!

Thanks so much Capt. James!!

A comment titled: thanksthanks bigjim in response to a report titled: New to the Bow game, looking for some help

the brairs are where the plot is goin to be so hunt the trails into the plot, and not the plot itself, got ya, we didn't really hunt all day last year, mostly mornings and afternoons, this year will be an all day affair, the goal is for myself to hunt 45 days this season, that should at least give me a chance a several deer, a hog would be nice too

Anymore tips on how to hold deer on the land, and how not to make them nocturnal?

I just looked at mossy oaks line of seed, and I am thinking plots, anyone know the amount of water would be needed to kill a plot in a small flood, the creeks back up where we hunt, and flood for about 36 once or twice a season, see any problem with that?
I was thinking
60ft x 60 ft
the outside edge use their tall grass seed, and use the inside use their easy plot hot spot stuff
and find a tree on the outside of the plot and set up there, good idea? bad idea?

I could be just going nuts
but Ima do it the feeder will be for another stand

A comment titled: cool in response to a report titled: New to the Bow game, looking for some help

thank you very very much, the land also drys out in the summer unless the tickfaw is up, which its a 2 ft, with a 13 ft flood stage, so , last winter was really wet!,streams moved our bridges for the tractor, needless to say we have a lot of work ahead, for the briars, im goin to get '24D' I believe is the name, im goin to cut small paths, and one 20ft box ,set up a feeder, with a mineral booster compound, the horns are growing now, all this I hopefully can complete by early june

ill keep up to date
thanks again guys

A comment titled: nice trout but.... in response to a report titled: world record trout from big lake

lets hold your arms out a little further, current record is 15# and change, and I promise you it most likely wont come from Louisiana, we have numbers, and numbers of trout, and some size, but we catch a lot of trout, and we don't let them grow, but idc smaller the better they taste, again very nice trout, but hold those arms a little bit more , and you can get the yuppies to follow you.

thank you very much
we baited with corn heavy last year, with no regular pattern we could see, with the weather being so off this past winter, trail camera we put out showed a pack of 6 very hungry does, with a mature doe and it seems she is producing 2 fawns a year,since she was 2, 3 bucks all year, 1 dominate buck 'Jim Tom' we call him, hes a 7pt., we caught a young 4 pt., on cam, and a young 8pt. called 'extra Point', his rack is straight up and down, we had scent protected as much as we could, but the winds whip in the bottoms blowing any kind of scent we put off everywhere
I was thinking of getting a ozone generator, as I hear they do work,
this year instead of hunting the gullys edge, Ima hunt a huge thicket, about 100yd.x 100yd.
Im going to cut a 20 yard box, with paths thru the thicket back
bait heavy, we just have the problem of the all the deer goin nocturnal, any more tips would be great from anyone
