I went fishing down in Buras today with my Dad and my cousin. We launched in the river and went through the locks. They are open all the time. The control booth is still there, but the glass is gone and it looks pretty much gutted. We fished the east side and caught one trout at the first stop, 21 trout at the second stop, 0 at the third stop and 52 trout at he fourth stop. All were caught on plastic. We ended the day at about 1:00 PM. It was great to be on the water.
This might be a question for the Mapman. Does anyone know how you figure out the distance in miles of a degree of Longitude/Latitude? For example how for is it from 25 degrees north to 26 degrees north? Or can someone tell me where I can look this up? Any information would be appreciated.
Can someone tell me when and where the next hunting safety course will be held between New Orleans and Baton Rouge in the near future? Thanks in advance.
I launched at C-Way in Lafitte yesterday at 6:00 AM and fished until about 1:00 PM. Finished the day with 22 trout. The bite was a little slow. 19 were caught in the Bay Lours area. I caught all of of them on black/chartreuse plastic.
Fished this morning in Buras with my 9 year old son, my Dad and brother. We launched at Joshua's a little after 7:00 AM. We caught 32 nice trout(very few throw backs), 2 black drum that were released, and 5-10 rat reds that we will try to catch next time when they grow to 16 + inches. All were caught on plastic, cast and retrieve, and within sight of the launch.
