I keep hearing about Tank Battery area in Lake des Allemands is good for bass fishing. Wondering if anyone would be able to help me find this area.
I've fished des Allemands a lot but typically stay in the popular areas (Stump, Humble in Bayou, Providence, etc)
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Launched under I-10 at Butte la Rose yesterday and saw a sign near the ramp stating that draining would begin in Henderson within the next 2 weeks and not to launch if the Lake Pelba gauge is under 6'. Supposed to be low until November.
I just started fishing here, but do they do this every year?? Thanks
Anybody having any luck in the Henderson/ Lake Pelba area? I've been thinking about going and fishing around the Interstate pilings, but I'm new to the area and not sure if the water level is ideal. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I just bought my first bow (Bear Archery Truth 2) in January, so Im relatively new to archery. We were talking archery at the camp, and a bunch of guys were saying that they shoot custom arrows that cost $120+ per dozen. So when the conversation reached me, i said, "I shoot Cabela's Stalker Extreme arrows." There was a brief moment of silence, and then they al laughed and commenced to telling me how I couldnt get accurate groups with "cheap arrows". Not wanting to be the butt of the joke, I said, "Lets go shoot from a stand outside and see who groups the best."
Three of us get in a treestand and one guy had horrible groups, the next guy had a respectable 4inch group; however, my groups were so tight that my broadheads were actually slicing the fletchings on my previous arrows. It may have been shooter's error on their part, but I learned that archery is all about fun and you dont have to spend tons of money to shoot well. My cheap ($50 per dozen) arrows work for me and thats all that matters.
I just want to wish all you guys a fun, safe, and successful bow season, and keep the pics coming
I checked a few cameras this morning and saw a monster hog & his friends eating some corn that I put out, and I also saw some healthy does too...So I know my big boy buck isn't far behind. Cant wait for bow season to crank up!
Hey Guys, I recently moved to Baton Rouge about six months ago and was looking for some local WMAs or any other local hunting grounds so that I can do some bow hunting and some rabbit hunting after deer season. I would perfer somewhere accesible by foot or ATV. Im also interested in reasonably priced guided/leased bowhunts. Thanks guys
I need a few opinions...
Im getting into rabbit and squirrel hunting next season, and I was wondering what's the best gauge for swamp rabbit hunting. I'm automatically inclined to think a 20 gauge would do the job, but I know a couple of guys that I work with who swear by 12 gauge because of the thick cover. Im going to end up getting both gauges, but which gauge would you guys get first???
