This is a long shot but if anyone needs a fishing buddy for the last weekend of snapper seasaon I can help with gas, bait, whatever. Hit me up. I have my own gear but no boat.

Hunting a crawfish pond with nature vegetation surrounded by rice, etc. Last week I tried a large spread and had no luck. I thing i am going to go with no more than 6-9 decoys in small spread out groups. Any better suggestions? Area is approximate 200 acres but surrounded by thousands. Their are lots of birds flying. I'm probably just going to be sitting on a leave because the birds have gotten used to the blinds.

What would you experienced duck hunters do?

January 27, 2012 at 7:35pm

Thinking about doing some kayak fishing at my spot in Fourchon.

Do you guys think it will be worth the trip this weekend with basically no tide?

December 30, 2011 at 9:47am

Its pretty terrible that someone would kill and behead a mother bear.

I hope the LDWF gets some leads and puts whoever did this behind bars.

Something has come up and I can no longer use the (3) permits I have for this Saturday (Sherburne South Farm Waterfowl Lottery Hunt). I dont have them with me but I believe they are transferable.

If you would like to use these (free of course) please contact me. I am located in Baton Rouge.

Please only contact me if you are serious and will put them to good use. I am sure their are poeple who dont have the opportunity to make a hunt like this that would love to go.

Got the mail today and I had two letters from LDWF... I got drawn for a marsh hunt at white lake opening week and the I got drawn for the south farm lottery at sherburne.

I feel like a kid on christmas morning!

I've been to white lake but never hunted the south farm at sherburne.

Anyone have some info they can share with me on what to bring, expect, etc.



October 20, 2011 at 8:08pm

Dont forget to renew your fishing license if you go this weekend. They expire Thursday 6/30.

June 29, 2011 at 8:43am

I am headed to fish lake sam rayburn in texas this weekend and was wondering if anyone had any advise on what to use. I will be bass fishing of course.

I have been talking with someone who advertising a lease as the property manager but does not have any kind of written lease agreement. He is not the property owner. How do I protect myself from getting ripped off? He told me I could call the company who owns the property and talk to them. But, I am not comfortable giving someone money for a lease without anything in writing. Advice?

February 23, 2011 at 1:05pm

I am looking to book a last minute duck hunt for saturday or sunday for my brother and myself. I would like to go within 2 - 2 1/2 hours of Baton Rouge. Any of you guides have any spots open? Any recommendations for guides I should try calling?


November 26, 2010 at 11:06am

I just got a Thompson Center Omega and I am looking to get a new scope for it. I am not trying to break the bank. Does anyone have any pros/cons regarding BDC or regular scopes? Any recommendations?

October 31, 2010 at 10:45am

I am looking to have some ducks mounted this year and need a good taxidermist in the Baton Rouge / Prairieville Area. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

September 28, 2010 at 4:39pm

Anyone have any success hunting Thistlewaite this year? I have hunted Sherburne and Tunica with no success. I am thing about giving Thistlewaite a try this weekend. Is there anything I should no other than what I can read about it on the LDWF website. (I know about the buck restrictions)

Went yesterday after work to do some scouting.

Man did I find them. Mosquitoes, mosquitoes, and more mosquitoes. Woods look good. Lots of deer signs.

Cant wait for some colder weather.

October 09, 2009 at 12:42pm

A couple of friends and I are looking for a place to go dove hunting this fall. I would like to stay in LA or east texas. I really dont feel like driving 8 hours to south texas. If anyone knows a good place please let me know.


August 03, 2009 at 12:26pm

Im headed to Grand Isle and I am trying to decide to bring my boat or Kayak. I really dont feel like bringing both. I fish there all the time so its not a matter of catching fish. Its just the method. What do you guys think?

June 19, 2009 at 7:54am

Im thinking about giving my 15' aluminum boat a new paint job. Any recommendations on which paint to use?

May 06, 2009 at 4:51pm

I was going to buy some new broadheads today from basspro and was wondering what everybody used for whitetail. I saw some pretty awesome looking G5 montec's in 100 grain at Academy. They did not have them in 125 grain. I know its all about shot placement but which is better? Thanks.

January 03, 2009 at 2:42pm

I just got a G5 expert 1 drop down to put on my Mathews. It twisted the rest all the way down and it is still off center to the left so my arrows all go left. Should I put a couple of washers in between my bow and the connecting bracket so it lines up straight?

A comment titled: No Gators in response to a report titled: White Lake Rice Fields

Id be shocked if they had any gators in the rice fields. If you were in the marsh it would be a different story.

A comment titled: White Lake in response to a report titled: White Lake youth hunt

Be prepared for what could possibly be one of the greatest duck hunts of your life. Its beautiful marsh.

You pull up, hop on a party barge with the entire group. Then you go to the camp which is only accessible by boat and hang for about 30 minutes. Then you take a big mud boat with (2) guides and another couple back into the marsh. Then you and your guide get out into another mud boat and head to your blind. The blinds are very well put together and guides know what they are doing.

You can have the opportunity to shoot a limit of nice ducks and possibly even some geese.

Its crazy you posted this because I fished a rodeo this weekened in Cocodrie and we lost one this big or bigger. A guy on our boat faught the fish for almost an hour and a half before the line finally snapped.

A comment titled: Yakin in response to a report titled: Kayak fishing

I own two pelican kayaks and I think they are great for the price. I think they cost around $350 and come with a paddle. I dont think they make any kayak to fit a 48 qt ice chest. I bought two of the insulated buckets with the bubblers to use as live wells and they work great. I can keep 80 shrimp in them live basically all day. Most people like myself just use a stringer to keep your catch. However, if you plan on going far and catching a bunch of fish pulling that stringer through the water can be like pulling a full bucket.

Definately my choice for the price you want to spend.

That is a nice box of fish right there. Can I give you my number to call me next time you need a fishing buddy!

I love fishing Hwy 1. I normally kayak fish.

Did you catch those off hwy 1 or road to Elmers?

A comment titled: Question in response to a report titled: Sherburne

How did you guys get to hunt the south farm on a Thursday? I thought all hunts were through the lottery only? The lottery hunt application only has saturday dates?

A comment titled: Duck Mount in response to a report titled: Waterfowl Taxidermy

I have two ducks from last year that I wanted to mount but didnt have the chance. How long will a duck stay good in the freezer?

A comment titled: HuntinG in response to a report titled: MY Lucky Day

Well I enjoy hunting just as much as killing. Experiencing the hunt is 90% of the fun. If you get to fire a few shots ever better. My main questions are like do I bring my own decoys , are blinds in place, can I bring my dog?

I guess lucky for my I got the second Saturday of the second split.

A comment titled: Life Jacket Only in response to a report titled: Kayak Safety Equipment

You must have a life jacket. You dont have to wear it but it must be within reach of you. It cannot be in a closed hatch. You dont need anything else.

A comment titled: Shark in response to a report titled: What have you seen?

One of the stangest things I have ever seen is when I went offshore fishing about 2 years ago out of fouchon. We were trolling in blue water about 40 miles out and all of a sudden a 10' shark (not on any line) started jumping about 15' out of the watter. The shark proceeded to jump about 4 or 5 times completely out of the water. I know this may be strange but I think it was a thrasher shark (it had the very long tail fin). Im no expert on shark identification. Hell i dont know if we even get them in the gulf. All I know is a big freaking shark was jumping completely out of the water for no reason behind our boat.
