Has anyone been picking up readfish from shore in the Shell Beach area? Last year we hit them at the bridge.
Here is a perspective from another state. I'm not saying it is correct, or that I agree with it. Who owns the land under the water? Does the property owner own the land under the water to the center of the canal? Does the property owner pay taxes on the land under the canal? If the property owner owns property on both sides of the canal then do they own the property under the canal? In New York State, if you own the land on both sides of a stream than you own the land under the stream. If you own the land on one side of a stream, you do not. If you own the property under a stream, you can prevent people from walking the stream to fish even if it is stocked by NYS with fish paid for with tax dollars. If the stream is considered navigable, which most are, then you cannot prevent people from traveling the stream as long as they are not touching your property. You own the land, not the water. If someone is fishing from a boat, and travels through your property, there are legal as long as they do not step foot onto your property.
Thanks bahduhbing42. Wishful thinking I guess.
If I had a boat I'd take you up on that, man I miss Molson Canadians! Your best bet may be to look up hog hunts close to the areas you'll be in. They are always in season and hunts can be relatively cheep. Same goes for fishing, although a fishing charter will run quite a bit of cash. Good luck.
Great report mandevillian, keep them coming!
Thanks again Mandevillian! I'm limited to shore and kayak fishing. Looking forward to hooking into some reds from the kayak.
Thanks Mandevillian! Sounds like the fishing is slowing down for the summer in Lake P. Any suggestion as to when it starts picking back up again? Late August, early September?
My daughter and I tried Bayou Lacombe last weekend and got two crabs. We used chicken on a string. There was a nice sized gator going after a few people's baits at the launch. Tide was moving well. We tried around Mandeville boat launch without any luck. Thinking of heading to Madisonville next weekend with the nets.
Mandevillian, where do you park when you launch there? I'm not a bass fisherman, but we love to kayak and that looks like a nice place to launch.
