Me and a buddy took out to cocodrie on 8/2. We stopped and got live cocohoes and I grabbed some dead shrimp. Put in at coco marina, started paddling behind LUMCOM I had a topwater tied on, second cast caught a 22' red. Continued throwing topwater for another hour with few strikes, switched to live minnow under a cork throwing against the grass for the rest of the day, ended up catching 3 more reds and a trout that were legal. Buddy ended with one red, second day put in at trade winds paddled down sevin canal and took a left at the end of the canal just fishing minnows under a cork. I finished my day off with 4 reds and one trout again, buddy limited out by noon on reds think he had 2-3 trout.

It was my first time kayaking and my buddies first time in saltwater.

Debating on weather to go fishing the weekend or not.

I'm deciding on weather to go to Cocodrie or hopedale..

I know the cocodrie area better but haven't seen many reports come from there lately. It's a long haul for me no matter where I go (3 hours) so I'd like to get hooked up on some trout and reds

Anyone have any input on any of these 2 areas?

Hey guys, I'm looking at getting a good LED light bar to put on top of my boat for when I'm running in the early mornings. All I really want to use it for is so I don't run over crab traps and or poles. What are you running and how far can you see?

hey guys, I'm looking at getting my engine serviced and a trolling motor mounted.. I called around to a few places and I was very impressed with Front and Back Boat Services. the guy was able to spit off prices as soon as i asked him.. does anyone have any dealing with these people?

Hey guys, I just bought a new boat, and I'm needed a custom boat cover to be made for it. As of right now I have a tarp covering it. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

There is a few bait shops on the way in, outlaw bait is one, then there is another probably less than a mile done the road, both on the left. When I was down there the last week of March the Tracie macie was docked up in Chauvin

I headed for the trestles in the morning, dished for about 30-45 minutes buddy caught 2 baby catfish. Left there went to go hit hospital wall (didn’t fish because I don’t know How far the rocks extended past the signs) went into St. Catherine didn’t get a nibble. Then went into geoghaden canal, caught 3 trout (2 keepers) lost a 15” at the boat. And plenty of bass and a few 13” and below reds

From my understanding.

The limit is still 25/day per person. Period.

To answer your question I’ll make an example.

I go out and catch 25 trout, return to the dock, throw those fish in my cooler in the back of my truck. Go to bed wake up the next morning and go catch 25 more trout. Return to the dock and throw them in my ice chest. I now possess the 2 day limit of fish in my cooler and can’t catch anymore.

That’s just my understanding. I could be wrong but I was looking into it recently and that’s just what I gathered.
