Hey guys, does anyone have a phone number for Dee Dee in Lafitte? I brought home my buck yesterday and want to get it mounted. I was referred to Dee Dee and Mr Jerry, Mr Jerry at SE phone seems to be disconnected. I normally get my deer mounted at TobyToby's in AL where I hunt but I'm bringing this to a local taxidermist. Phone number please?? Thanks!
Does anyone have details on the Bayou Segnette bass tournaments? Have not been this year, just trying to find out if they still have them on Wednesday afternoons. If anyone has fished the tournaments and has some info, I would appreciate it. Would like to go this Wednesday. THANKS
I have a 2004 Mercury Optimax 225. I recently started having problems with the trim. It gives me trouble when trying to trim up and down by using the throttle or when using the trim on the motor. Last week it went out totally and now my motor will not trim. After looking at it and talking to a mechanic he thinks it may be the trim motor. I thought it was one of the relay boxes to the trim. I wanted to bring it in to Metro Boating to get fixed but I was told that it would take a couple weeks. I am trying to get back on the water by Friday. Has anybody had any trouble with this motor? What do ya'll think it probably is? I am going to try to fix it myself on Thursday. Where should I start? Thanks
Does anyone know if Fouchon Beach is open to the public right now? Want to try to make a surf fishing trip this weekend but, heard the beach was closed. Thank You
Nice fish for Lafitte! Barataria Bay already?
Thanks I appreciate that!! I got in touch with him already.
My suggestion would be to start off on the north end of Baratria Bay and fish reefs like Manilla Village and St. Marys Point early as possible. Fish aren't real big but there should be some good action on soft plastics. If you are able to head farther south try fishing around the beaches with live bait. Live shrimp or croakers around 4 Bayou area around the camps should work. Otherwise the front side the beach with carolina rigged live bait. Good Luck, let me know how you make out.
Headed down this weekend since we finally getting a break from the winds. Did yall catch the snapper in East Bay? Also, are the reds in any particular areas of the river or just any of the rock walls on either bank? Thanks for the report.
That's a nice looking box of snapper. Did you catch them in East Bay or farther out? What depth were they hanging at? We planning on headed to East Bay as soon as the weather permits.
Another excellent report from East Bay. Looking for a little more details on your trip. Told you we were trying to go last week, but we did not make it down because of work. We are headed down tomorrow morning. I usually run through Joseph Bayou out into East Bay. We did not do as good as we normally do last time we went. We were fishing in 55' of water as we always do. Were you fishing in deeper water again. I have trouble keeping the croaker alive for the run down the river so we just use pogie and squid. Did yall limit out? What depth were you in and what depth were the fish hanging? Thanks again for any info.
I had 2 really memorable experiences this year. First was in Oct, one of the best offshore trips I have ever been on. Took my little brother and his wife out and we caught and released snapper all day long out of Venice. Never seen action like this before on red snapper. We were catching them on the surface in a feeding frenzy one after another. We were trying to chum up Mangroves and got into reds and lemon fish. It was a feeding frenzy on the surface. My second would be taking my dad on his first ever deer hunt this year. After years of him not wanting to try hunting, I finally convince him. We hunted three days at my place, he missed one day and killed two big does on the other two days. He now loves deer hunting, has purchased his own rifle and cant wait for me to take him back. I hope everyone has a chance to take a kid (or dad) on their first hunt. It is something I will never forget. My pops excitement after he killed his first deer was priceless.
Been using mine for a couple months now and love it. I actually make a turkey now at least once a week. Cant beat the health benefits, and they taste great. The skin will taste just like a fried turkey. Highly reccomended.
Did y'all fish the Blue Point Canals? If so, how was the water clarity in these canals? Last time I found clean water in there a couple weeks back, we caught em'.
Thanks nob, I will be out there tomorrow for sure. We will be in a 22' Ranger Bay. I think that my best option would be to run back to Lafitte
Just asked the same question a couple days ago. Got some replies and the answer is yes. They started two weeks ago. I plan on going out there tomorrow for the first time this year. First week 15lbs. won it and last week 7lbs. won it. Thought that was strange.
What a gap in weight between weeks. I am planning on going Wednesday. Have not caught anything over in the tank pond lately. Thats where we used to catch better fish for tournaments. The fish we have been catching steady go between 1 to 2 pounds. Might just make the run back to Lafitte and try to catch a few of those and see what happens. Thanks for the reply.
NOB, have you been fishing the tournaments the past couple weeks?
I find it odd that someone is making a post on Venice bass fishing. Dont see that much on here anymore, but it is refreshing. I dont fish in the Wagon Wheel no more but I have found cleaner water up that way on high river. Last time down there I tried all my usual spots off Main Pass and South Pass but found mostly dirty water. The few I caught were in Franks Crossing. I caught a couple dinks and two three pounders. Released them all because I had already caught a three man limit of reds. The fish were pushed up in the canes pretty far back. Still, thats a real nice stringer for high river.
Those are some fat fish. Where did you find clean water?
The Blue Point Canals in Lafitte are located in the NE corner of the Pen. There are two entrances from the Pen. Easiest route is to go straight across the Pen(2 miles by 5 miles long)from the Goose Bayou Canal. Head E/SE, and this is the main entrance most fisherman use. There is also a North Canal entrance, entrance from Cam Craft and you can enter through a pipeline canal from Bayou Dupont. This area has had good fishing over the years but is fished very hard by the locals. Right now the water is very dirty in the front but clears up in the back once you get past the diversion canal. Hope this helps.
I use all Shimano reels for all my fishing. Wether I am fishing bass or inshore saltwater I only fish with Shimano Curado's. I own over 20 Curado's and never had a problem yet. I use Shimano Symetre's for my charter fishing reels(spinning reels). These are great all around reels for inshore and bass fishing. I would suggest a combo from Academy for approx. $150. You can get either a Shiamno Curado or Citica on a nice rod for around this price. I use all Castaway rods and love them, but have had a few of them break. As far as lubricants for the reels, go with Reel Magic. This stuff works great on the reels and keeps them functioning properly. Holla back if you have any questions. Good Luck
IMO this is a cull buck. Very healthy looking deer, but I believe this is a cull. Dont see any signs of stress on that rack where it would be broke from fighting. Bucks have not started rutting by me yet so I know most of the ones I seel like this are culls. Just my opinion.
Our club is located in SW Alabama. I am happy with the way the green fields look considering all the rain we have had, but last year they were beautiful. We have killed alot less deer this year off of the green fields also. I think it has alot to do with the amount of acorns that were still in the woods just last week. We also plant rape and turnip with our plot mix and have had great sucsess with it. The deer love the turnip by us late in the year once we have had a few freezes. This year we planted first week of September, next year I will be pushing it back a couple of weeks. Anyone else seeing alot less deer on green fields this year in the LA, AL, MS areas? I think it has to do with all the rain... Good luck to all fellow hunters and be safe.
I have a whole hunting camp of members that will tell you to get Honda. Not every one has Honda but, those of us who do were able to ride planting weekend when the two Polaris and one Yamaha gave us trouble. Just my opinion.
