I need a little advice.... I've fished the leeville area for the last 15 years but have never made it as far north as catfish lake. Have a trip planned there with my son and son-n-law. We only have 2 days to fish and from my past experience at leeville it sometimes take longer to find and/or figure out what the fish want. Note: we will be in a 17'prodrive,sold bay boat. Ive given plenty of advice to many a fisherman in the past and hope it can make its full circle. Sooo... I'm asking for a little help. I don't want your favorite or your hot spots, just a little help, pointed in the right direction.

The middle of the lake?

The north end? Deep? Shallow? Canals are better? Live or plastics?Any hazards ?? Thanks in advance.

Can a Nikon prostaff scope handle the recall of a .444 Marlin??? Thanks...
recently purchased a H&R.444 marlin that has a prostaff on it and need to know if it will handle the kick of a crack barrel that size.

I've heard good things about Miller's lake sac-a-lait fishing. I've also never fished it before either. Can an anyone tell me the truth......? When does the sac-a-lait start biting?? And is it worth a 1 1/2 hour drive? I'm not a greedy man... Only like to have about 15-20 nice fish put a little bend in my ole jig pole. Thanks for your patience and any info. Good luck wherever you fish and please stay safe.

PS. I'm not asking for your fishing spot..... just the truth.

What a day. Beautiful morning. Plenty of ducks. They were working to the call. We didn't have to hurry and get our limit. Could've been some by 7am easy but waited and had a quality hunt. Was able to pick and choose the birds we wanted. Then the last bird to finish my limit was a true Black Duck. First ever in 30 years of waterfowl hunting.

LA 1 between Leeville and Grand isle. Right side of the road, dead or live shrimp will produce some nice specks and Reds. Specially in winter months. Good luck.

killed one about 30 years ago in the spillway off grand river in mims lake. Beautiful Birds. Wish I'd mounted him. haven't shot one sence. Then again, they fly like Hooded Meganzers, so if i see that I pull off the shot. HM are nice to look at and a challenge to shoot, but leave much to be desired for table fare.

Find yourself a dead end canal next to a deep channal out of the wind. If you don't already know, go in really quiet. Stealth mode...Troll in slow and watch for small pops on top of water. One pop = 10,000 pogies under it! Lol. Good luck.

Ok guys/gals, my trip is this weekend with my son and snl. Still haven't heard any good reports about catfish lake. If anyone wants to throw an idea or 2 my way the help would be much appreciated. Looking for some trout in catfish lake area. Or have they moved too far south and started heading to the outside islands? Thanks in advance. I'll post report about results.

You can build blinds using natural material. NO manufactured wood products or nails. But as soon as you do.... You will have everyone and their brother n law hunting 65-80 yards from you or end up with some in your blind telling you they have hunted there all their life. Hate to be so negative but it's really gotten bad there. No more room. Good luck and be safe.

Lot of redistribution going on!!! Thanks to a post on 10/9 about 'teal thick as mosquitos in Henderson' I was meet by four head lights in every hole I scouted for most of the season, at 3:30 am!!! It was terrible. Some people think that all the teal should be theirs to hunt! Anyone interested in buying some teal decoys.... Won't be needing mine anymore.
