Wanted to go shoot some nutria, but the high tides didn't help, so we rabbit hunted. My dog ran the rabbits non-stop all morning. She was definitely exhausted after since passed out the whole way home. My dad and I accidentally only brought one shotgun so we didn't shoot as many as we could have, but we had a blast anyhow. My beagle kept giving us a look like, ''i'm doing my job... what are yall doing?' after we missed on a few rabbits early. Hopefully we can keep running them the next few weeks.

Got off of work a little bit early yesterday, and made a little rabbit hunt. Have'nt gotten to run my dog too much this year but as soon as we got out there she jump one up and ran it real good. She was running it for about thirty minutes and it was going in the opposite direction of where we jumped it up. I knew there was a bayou in the direction she was running it so I went to the bank of the bayou which served as a natural funnel. Sure enough a little cottontail came by exhausted only moving a few yards at a time. Fired two shells and hit it the second time. My dog rode home proud as can be.

This this season has been a great struggle for most. I did a lot of scouting over the split and am gonna change my game plan up. The only question is though, how does a swollen Pearl River affect the marsh area in the south part of the WMA? I know the upper region all of the woods get flooded, but was wondering about the marsh area, does the water rise and flood the marsh???

Just bought my first beagle after rabbit hunting solo for a few seasons now. With a lot of success I wanted to change the game and have more fun with a huntin partner. She is started and has run a few rabbits and I have only had her a month. My only problem is she seems to not circle them. I may be too anxious when she goes out of sight in the thick summer brush and swamps but she barks and then stops. I can't hear her or see her in the brush and then 30 yards away she is barking again. Is that just her learning? But thanks for any comments or criticism and while the dog is running should I encourage her with my words or should I stay quiet?

Thanks guys and gals

Today a buddy of mine and me went down to laffite to get some good fishing in. We Went all the way down bayou cutler to where it empties into the mud lake and bayou st dennis region. We have our few holes that usually produce some reds, drum, and tons of sheepshead. We fish alot of openings of canals and some points on the marsh. Well in the past month I have been down there 4 times and only coming home with 2 or three fish. When we used to put about 2 or 3 reds a person and tons of sheepshead. But this past month it has realy been SLOW. And today we went out and came home with nothing, we caught 3 throw back rat reds and that was it. I was wondering if I was the only one having this problem. I dont even see any bait fish that I was expecting with the warmer weather. Maybe I need to start fishing the little lake area to put some fish in the boat. IDK but I am deffinately not giving up. But I was just wondering if I was the only one not catching the reds down in laffite?

Hey guys I bought a 23' bay boat about a year ago and I now think its time for a trolling motor. I have been doing some research on the right size and voltage on my boat most seem to say i need about a 101 lb thrust with a 36v. I also am fine with a bow mount hand operated one. But I am not sure which brand yall think is the best motor guide or minn kotta and if this is the right trolling motor for my boat.

Great day to go out and get a quick fish in! Me and my dad decided to take the boat out of lafitte. We only had two hours of fishing. The first hole we hit we put one red in the boat. The second hole we hit we got a red early and were about to leave since we only had 30 minutes left but we threw out to the back side of the boat and caught four quick sheepshead. We left them biting cause god knows if we didnt cook the turkey in time my mom would have flipped. lol. But over all it was a great day. All the fish were caught with market shrimp on the bottom. Its always a great day when the boat runs great and we come home with some fish.

The aquatic vegetation was affected some, but some ponds look the exact same as before. While others look like they lost about half.

I plan on checking that area out this weekend. I hope the SAV remains nice and healthy.

Well thank you fine gentleman, I think I may wait until I am off during the weeks of Christmas and New Years to go out there. I will probably just make a hunt in Maurepas and try to shoot a few woodies or tree ducks if they are still around. Thank you.

I know I'm getting back to you late but I appreciate the information, White Boots. She is getting better and can't wait for our first hunting season. But I know we both will still be learning a lot this first season.

That is a nice cat! I took my mom fishing last weekend and that is all we caught in laffite. We had to stay in north bayou perot because of boat issues but we had a blast catching them.

A comment titled: the lake in response to a report titled: Lake Ponchitrain

when we first got our boat we tried the lake... with not much luck but you can try around the causeway and keep trying with some dead shrimp on the bottom but just keep moving if you dont get a bite move to a new set of pillings. But I here you can try the manchac area for some fresh water fishing I here it is pretty good.

We fished market bait (dead shrimp) on the bottom and went all the way down barataria waterway till it opens into mud lake and we fished a bunch of canal openings. on google maps the area was called bayou cutler and we went down till it opens to mud lake.

A comment titled: what to use in response to a report titled: Lafreniere Park Fishing

I used to fish there alot but usually trying to catch some perch and catfish but i have heard a slow moving wacky worm or weightless worm will work and you can never go wrong with a spinner bait.
