My son Eric and caught I made a late trip Saturday, caught 5 really nice bass... with this one being the biggest. Had to fish worms extremely slow... if you reeled it all, they would not touch it.
Got a chance to make a trip with youngest son Eric to the Bend FRIDAY, Saturday, and Sunday. A big front blew through Friday morning early, with 25-30 mph winds. Our biggest bass were caught in the main lake, but had to go back in protected waters when the wind and waves got bad. Our best day was Saturday when we caught around 50 bass with the best 5 bass going around 21 lbs. Fun trip!
Have been having some good early fall fishing in the Lafitte/Salvador areas. My son and I went out this weekend and caught around 25 bass... with 6 going between 4 and 5 bs.... best 5 around 22 lbs.
Launched out of Segnette today, and caught several really nice bass. My son Eric stuck this swamp monster, and it put a show on. Don't see many bass filled out like that in August
Had a nice trip today with my youngest son Eric. We caught some nice bass with these two being the biggest.
Took two of my 6 grandkids out, and they wound up with 10 bass. Fun was had by all. Now I have to work the other 4 kids in!
Made a trip with son Adam this morning. Fog was fairly bad, it was slow going. We caught 24 bass, had some decent ones, and one over 5 lbs. We went further east this time. Caught some on jigs and some on spinnerbaits.
Had an outstanding trip with my son. We caught between 60 and 70 bass, many in the 3 and 4 lb. class. We each had a bass between 5 and 6 lbs. Fishing along the intracoastal between Larose and Houma. Had a blast!
Florida issued a warning to all beach goers.... says bacteria will get worse as ocean temps rise.
The State House will be voting on the saltwater license Tuesday. This is for HB 1082. If you want to tell your Rep. and Senator your view on this today, below is a website to find them and their e-mail addresses. Don't complain if you don't send your views!
Caught a big spawner today....was dripping eggs. Let her go to have babies and grow. If you gonna keep some bass to eat, keep the 1 to 2 lbers....no sense in putting a knife into a bass like this that will be someone's biggest ever, maybe a youngster will catch her!
Hey Sam, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org when you get a chance, thanks.
My son lost his tackle bag yesterday while fishing out of Bayou Black....must have fallen out of the boat. If anyone comes across a tackle bag in this area, please give me a shout, thanks. 504-621-9440.
Talked to several friends yesterday and today. One went out of Bayou Segnette in Westwego, and saw dead fish or fish dying. Another went into Lake Des Allemands and reported lots of dead/dying fish. Another launched at Bayou Black and reported dead/dying fish, mostly on the north side of the intracoastal. All said the water coming out of the marsh smells really bad.
All folks who fish and swim in our Gulf waters be careful and attentive. My son was invited to go on a trip this weekend out of Grand Isle for snapper. There were 7 people total on the boat. They fished for red snapper 24 miles out, then fished for mangrove snapper about 8 miles out. Everyone took a swim, but only two, my son and a friend, handled frozen pogy and chumed. Both had a small cut on a hand. Last night they both had swollen red hands with red lines going up their arms. They both sought immediate medical attention. They received several shots and 3 types of oral anti-biotics that will cover several of the Vibrio bateria strains. I have googled this to get more info, and the Center for Disease Control has had over 900 cases of this reported since 1998, almost all in the Gulf states. Take note if you have cuts, abrasions, and wounds. I always take a liquid anti-septic with me in case I have a nick or cut and use it frequently and wash the area well.If you notice any signs of soreness, swelling, or red lines, get immediate medical attention. This stuff works fast, especially if you have diabetes or any other condition that can affect the immune system. The pictures I saw of people who thought it was something else and tried to treat it with topical medication was not pretty. People have had limbs amputated and it could even be fatal.
The grass is just starting to come up in Lake Cataouatche. The LW&F was out spraying last week. Does anyone know how to contact them so we can get them to stop and let the grass grow again? Thats the only chacne this lake has with all the attention it recieves.
