My lms 522c finally gave out and I bought a 339c to take its place because the wiring was the same.the map on the 339 is not nearly as detailed because it came from japan.what map would give me the most detail of the lake ponchartrain area.thanks in advance.

Toughed it out with the rolling 2 to 3 footers and caught a decent box at the causeway.fish caught with kamikazi vortex shad.caught em jiggin the poles.water temp around 75 strong west wind to start,west south west to finish

With the thought of capsizing in the big pond due to the gale force winds yesterday,i decided to visit catfish lake.i havent fished there in 10 years but if you cant catch fish in catfish lake you might want to pick another hobby.with the high north wind we stayed on the north broken shoreline.what works for me in the marsh,especially when youve got all that wind blown water is to troll around and position your boat in the middle of multiple points and silently pole anchor or powerpole.cast to each point multiple time for 15 to 20 minutes.we repeated this pattern yesterday in tough conditions and it payed off.played catch and release with a few reds after the limit also released several puppy drum and rat reds.the fish were caught on chartreuse and white jerk shads and glow 3 inch gulp shrimp 18 inches under a popping cork in 2 foot of 67 degree water.sorry about the pic my brothers camera sucks.

Itchin to fish the causeway but i know the lake should look like chocolate milk tomorrow.might go pound the pilins anyway if nothin else to run the boat.

Had to work so brother in law went to the honey hole around the rigolets to find low and dirty water.tide dead at first and started coming in around 9.he said he caught several small blue cats and this goo.water temp was 48.he tried live shrimp and matrix shad in various colors.guess the honey hole aint a honey hole after a front with an incoming tide.

fog

Made the ride through the fog to the marsh near the rigolets.with the water rolling out me, my brother and my nephew set up on a drain and started picking up fish.the bite slowed so we moved to deeper water and it was on.we played catch and release with the red fish after our three man limit with a few throw back dum, reds and trout also.most of the fish were caught with live shrimp on a drop shot rig in 25 feet of water.the bass were caught with shrimp creole and a kick a mullet.

Started in muscle bay and picked up a few trout.poked around in petes lagoon and found a bunch of small trout.managed 15 keepers ranging from 3 pounds to 13 inches.most going 13.brother in law caught two big drum and a 35 inch bull red in crooked bayou.we must have caught 40 trout to catch the 15.water was falling all day with a temperature of around 67.biggest trout caught on a kick a mullet.the rest bit on everything but a yozuri shrimp in any color.

Anyone know the safest and quickest route from bsm to lake robin.ive fished around this area for years,just not in lake robin.thanks in advance.

July 12, 2013 at 9:59am

Made a solo trip to the causeway today.got to the fishing ground towards the north shore to find that same river water but managed to catch about seven trout,one red and a flounder.cant forget about the five croaker.moved to mid lake to find decent green water but couldnt buy a bite.made my way towards the south shore to find more river water but caught a few more trout.this trip really blew my mind.clean moving water ='s fish in my mind but today it was totally opposite.most of my fish were caught on new penny berkely gulp but did catch a few on shrimp creole matrix shad.all of the fish were keepers but not the hammers I usually catch on the causeway.couple of egg filled two pounders,the rest were 14 inchers.15 trout 1 red and a flounder.

June 12, 2013 at 7:39pm

Drove past dockside and live shrimp,thinking I would fish the south end of the tressles.changed plans and ended up fishing icw area with green hornet on a plain 3/8 head in the marshes south of the locks.caught my limit,lost a 3 foot tarpon and a gar about the same length.poor brother in law got skunked with same bait.

April 09, 2013 at 5:59pm

Got to go when I can,and hoping the weather man was wrong,which he wasn't,went to fourchon area for the first time in a kayak.I had one of the worst trips in my life,and that's saying a lot.if one of y'all catch a Calais on a cumara in the hole between the two points after the crane goin towards grand isle,there's a reward,a long shot I know but I love that reel.

December 05, 2012 at 5:29am

Beautiful conditions this morning at the causeway,then the wind flip flopped and the bite stopped.

November 23, 2012 at 5:52pm

Tough day but managed a few.countless throwback reds.could have caught a lot more drum but the water was screamin out the bayou yesterday.5 Reds 2 black drum 3 flounder and one lonely trout went to the freezer.majority of fish caught in muscle bay,fishing the run outs, two feet under a cork with 3 inch molting Berkeley gulp.sorry no pics.wont let me insert.they say the files too big.never had a problm before.

October 28, 2012 at 12:12pm

Thought it was gonna be a great day. first cast produced a 2 and a half pound trout with a tiger bait matrix shad.caught a couple more with live shrimp.made move to muscle bay somebody already posted up in spot I usually get, they were wearing em out.couldnt buy a fish anywhere else in muscle.decided to try and salvage trip in a spot that's usually good in an incoming tide.picked through alot of throw backs and managed enough to eat.lot of trout in the marsh right now.waiting for the bigger ones.sorry bout the pick I was in a hurry.majoriy of fish caught on 3 inch berkely gulp in natural two feet under popping cork.

October 14, 2012 at 9:27am

Made a trip to the causeway saturday.fished from north shore to mid lake.caught a mixed bag consisting of one bull red,5 flounder,and about 25 trout.bad thing was,I had one 4 pounder one three,and all the rest were throw backs.

Don't hate on the man for slaying pontchartrain trout.i could care less if he slides a promo in there every now and then.seems like this site is now full of wanna be saints and haters.that's why a lot of people including myself don't poston here anymore.fall off your high horses long enough to learn to catch em onyour own.

A comment titled: wtf in response to a report titled: grand isle

Look at the first post and look at the last post.how far do yall children want to carry it from there.if you buy or own waterways be prepared to watch public fish removed from your property.i was fishing in catfish lake one time and a guy pulls up in his boat and tells me im on private property and to fish the pond on the other side of this canal.i agree and move to the other side.i watched the guy fish for about 20 minutes before he confronted us and he didnt catch a single fish.as soon as i moved to the other side i started wearin the fish out.i got a real problem with morons,thats about it.now this site reminds me of the construction field im in.the safety men try to get a bunch of ignorant construction workers to listen to a bunch of big words they dont even understand theirselves.quit worrying about being so smart and address a topic for what it is.no spell checks here,could type properly but im from livingston and that wouldnt be keeping it real.yall keep being smart and ill keep fishin.

A comment titled: line in response to a report titled: fishing line question

20 pound mono is too big in my opinion.braid is great for redfish but in my experience not too good for big trout.if youre catching school trout then braid is fine.i fish with 12 or 14 pound clear blue stren and only worried when flipping 4 pound trout in the boat.will switch to p line occasionally,but im sure youll see some chimers with negative comments about it.change mono and flurocarbon out regularly and you wont have a problem.with braid,like said above,will only need to be changed when low.look for nicks within a casting distance of string and remove damaged sections as needed.

There were several boats out there.i was even sharing a section of the northshore with eric dumas.didnt see anyone else catch.talked to a guy who said he caught one.

A comment titled: problem? in response to a report titled: Golden Meadow Grand Isle Trip

Never had a problem fishing catfish lake.always caught a mixed bag every time ive went.caught more sheephead then anywhere else.getting drydocked in the shallows was my only concern there.berkely gulp or dead shrimp will put meat fish in the boat.the trout are a different story for me.ive caught a bunch of trout but nothing im really looking for.

A comment titled: loyalty in response to a report titled: Vodoo Shrimp

Being loyal to a bait will catch more fish than fishing with newer baits that are suppose to catch more fish.shrimp imitation when the shrimp are in and minnow shaped when theyre not.if the fish are on,they will bite any immitation of the two.the only stand out feature of voodoo shrimp is durability.some will say action as well but a berkely has got to be the worst bait action wise that there is but at the end of the day the gulp will put more fish in the boat.throw a gulp and a voodoo shrimp 2 feet apart from each other tightlined on the bottom and wait for a bite.who evers holdin the pole with vd shrimp would kill over before they got a bite.bottom line,base your baits on match the hatch,water clarity but lastly,durability.

A comment titled: thats crazy. in response to a report titled: Top water time

Sure thatll never happen again.ive reeled in six foot gar fish that was foul hooked in the tail after he missed a gulp shrimp killed three squirrels in one shot.but thats crazy man.glad to see the marsh down there comin to life.by the way,i dont think the previous comment was doubting you.he was saying hook line and sinker talks just like jls.

We got enough people here already.the reason theyre not trying to help is obvious.my simple home town has been overrun by outsiders.the small out of place swamp i use to hunt and fish when i was young in walker turned into a hunting club.they ran roads through it dried it up and ruined it.i know sometimes you must relocate in life ,so to the original poster welcome and good luck but for the negative comments about our state GET OUT.katrina hurt our state by bringing in new peole.then you got the mexicans.once again get out.

A comment titled: tight in response to a report titled: Water clarity

Feel bad now forgetting to say they were tight to the poles.usually when they're on the traps heavy you'll have a bunch of hits on the retrieve right at the boat.

A comment titled: temp. in response to a report titled: Water clarity

Wouldn't have left the launch till 9 but tried to avoid the crowds that never came.would have caught more but was trying to teach the brother in law how to feel the bite for an hour.saw Dumas fishing the west side of the north bound span witch I would have never done due to past experience.when I saw Dumas fishing like that I would have been stupid to do anything else.sorry, bite started around eleven.

A comment titled: clarity in response to a report titled: Water clarity

Believe it or not, water clarity from the north shore to the first hump was around 10 feet.could almost see the bottom I guess.i didn't even have a nibble in that water.the five fish I caught came between the drawbridge and the turn around to the south of that.didnt catch the first fish till the water hit 53 surface temp.missed 6 big fish one of witch would have been personal best.fish caught on lemon head matrix shad.clarity around 3 feet.

A comment titled: haters in response to a report titled: More from today

Haters are gonna hate, period.ask any of those with the negative comments if they've ever caught fish like that, and if so, show pics.i fish the lake when I can and I've never even come close.hats off lb.
