Where are the darn aerial survey results? Larry said they would be out today. It's always a pia trying to find the results. Why can't they post them on the ldwf website? Where they at Larry?

Anybody have a good area to catch pogies in cocodrie?

May 28, 2017 at 8:47pm

Made it out to the lease this morning in the heavy winds. No teal at first light, not good. Took a little while but then the ducks started coming in, sucking right into the decoys. Had 1 widgeon, 1 mottled, and 5 grays by 7ish then nothing. I mean not anything anywhere. Sat for awhile then went ride to another pond where there were some teal seen yesterday, sure enough plenty blue and green wings sitting in the same place along with a few grays. We also saw about 10 green heads paired up with hens, first ones I seen all year. Will be back out there sunday.

Hunted this morning with success finally! The birds flew well before the clouds rolled in. Final tally: 7 greys, 6 dosgris, 1 bwt, 1 gwt, 1 mottle. Saw a good number of greys that wanted in but just couldn't get them to fully commit, secondary to the high winds I suppose. This cold front should bring in some new birds. Lost a couple of greys in the marsh, still amazes me how far those birds can swim once they dive. Good luck this weekend.

I am looking for any available duck leases for the 08, 09 duck season. I would appreciate any feedback that you can offer. Thanks

Oh boy, this stinks to high heaven. What a slippery slope this council is going down. Pay the fees this year boys and then before you know it they will want $500, $1000, or who knows how much. $250 for a processing fee, puh-lease. I can see maybe a five dollar fee but even that is a stretch.

King mackerel are pretty easy to catch. They will readily eat a trolled rapala lure or spoon. You will need a wire leader for sure. Single strand wire and swivels are cheap. Don't worry if your hay wire twists aren't perfect, they don't have to be. Get out 8-10 miles offshore and troll rapalas around the rigs, you'll catch em no doubt. A live hardtail slow trolled around the rigs are also a sure bet to boat some kings. Clear green water is ideal, if the water is nasty results may vary.

Millions spent on private lands to restore the marsh. Are these public dollars being spent? What happens if I try to fish some of these ponds?

We busting them up in terrebonne parish :) we always shoot the majority of our ducks in the first split. Last year was terrible for us, this year we are slaying them. I've been duck hunting for 25 years and have seen good times and bad. One thing I've learned is you can't please everyone all of the time. I seem to remember Larry having data that shows the majority of ducks harvested in the state are shot in November.

'Just got reynolds email. 1.5 million birds down, down from 3 million same time last year'
Saw this on tigerdroppings. Saw a few other tidbits that supposedly came from Larry. I've been looking around for the survey results but no luck . Maybe you have to be a VIP to get the results before the season opens?

Most people I have talked say the ipilot is the best thing since sliced bread. The anchor function is nice to have. With that being said I chose the old hand control for a couple reasons. First I am concerned about cost to repair a gps controlled trolling motor. I personally know of no one who has had issues as of yet. I'm sure they do occur however. I do not like the foot control on the ipilot. There is a delay from when pressing the button and the head turning. I did not like that at all. I haven't experienced the auto deploy but the manual deploy is not bad. The hand control again is pretty nice but I like to have my pole in my hands and not a remote control. Oh and the cost is considerably more.

A comment titled: Re: Blazer Bay 2220 Feedback in response to a report titled: Blazer Bay 2220 Feedback

Ran the 2220 fisherman for 6years and just sold it. Ours did not have tabs and would pound when in chop. It's a very dry riding boat and can get really shallow. I consider it a great hybrid bay boat. On nice days fish the outside and can get skinny if the wind is blowing. I think tabs would have helped the ride a lot. It was sensitive to weight in the stern.

15-20 mph northeast wind, stay home! You set yourself up for failure. Wait till next weekend when the wind forecast looks more favorable. Look forward to muddy rough water. Go if you must by I don't think trout will be on the menu. You can probably catch reds on market bait though.

I am proficient with an 8ft net. I can catch pogies in fourchon no problem. Same spot every time before daylight. I'm fairly new to cocodrie and need a good spot near the launches to catch pogies. I get a little nervous about losing my net in a new area as I am unfamiliar with how clean the bottom is. The pogies I catch under the pelicans always seem to be of the magnum variety. I was looking for the 3-5 inch speckle trout sized pogies.

It takes time to learn an area and know how the water conditions with be in relation to the weather. If you don't have the knowledge then burn some gas and go hunt down that clean water.

A comment titled: Re: Tips for Windy Days in response to a report titled: Tips for Windy Days

Try to get out of the wind!!! Wind out of the south fish the north side of the island. North wind fish south side of island. Find clean water is the key. Live bait works much better in dirty water if you can't find any clean areas. Windy days just plain suck for fishing. I figured out you are setting yourself up for failure by fishing on windy days. I like to catch trout. Trout and wind usually don't go together very well. I'm not saying it can't be done but it is definitely much harder. If I absolutely have to fish in the wind then I will be chasing reds deep in the marsh,

Bring a lot of decoys to hunt the wax, the more the merrier out there. The spinner can be a blessing and a curse, put a couple out and watch how the birds respond to it, if they no likey then go pick it up. In the morning go find a big patch of roseau cane (like soft bamboo) and cut a bunch of it(2-3 large bundles). Head out to the edge of the 'fingers', out in the gulf . You may find an old blind to get your boat in and dress it up with the cane that you cut. I like to put two piles of decoys on the downwind side with a landing zone and spread the other decoys up wind of you . Hope for some wind cause without it your hunt will s@@k.

Fished Monday in PAC and saw 3 bwt south of the marina, also two mottled ducks. That was it, the water was super high and the redfish did not cooperate.

A comment titled: Re: Wax lake in response to a report titled: Wax lake

It's approx 13 miles one way. We would burn 7-8 gallons with a 36hp pro drive loaded to the gills in a round trip. I would wager you could make the trip on a 5 gallon tank, bring an extra 5gallon can the first time you go to be sure. If you run the tank dry at least you know you have enough gas to make it home from that point(assuming you are running a 5gallon tank)

A comment titled: Re: Fishing in Dularge in response to a report titled: Fishing in Dularge

If trout is the targeted species then you are waaaaay to far north at this time of year. The area you are fishing would be considered the upper estuary. This upper estuary will hold trout in the late fall and winter months(generally speaking). Late spring and summer the trout are out in or near the gulf. As the days get shorter the trout begin to filter back into the inshore lakes. Soo, April-September think coon point, enstar, Mardi Gras rigs etc, sept-November-ish look in the sister lake lake mechant area, November-March lake decade low deuce upper estuary type places. Leave that market shrimp at home unless your after reds and drum. Dularge trout readily take artificial lures. All you need are some lead heads(1/8 and 1/4 oz) and some soft plastic tails like matrix or h&h etc. try one rig with a popping cork and one with a double or single rig so you can probe the water column i.e. Fish the bottom middle and top to see what the fish prefer. For reds get back in the duck ponds and throw gold spoons or spinner baits or that nasty bait shrimp you take with you every time you go fishing.
