Question for you guys in the Lafayette Baton Rouge area what's a good place to get my boat check out for weak spots or cracks in my fiberglass? Last weekend an 18 wheeler decided to merge into my lane picking my trailer off the ground on one side and riding down the interstate on one tire. When he went back over my boat and trailer slammed hard back on the road and I plan on getting it checked out.
Thanks in advance

I hunt area 10 and just realized that they changed the laws that there is now doe days and buck days. I'm hunting a small area and I just bow hunt. On the LDWF it says under archery Sept. 21-Jan. 15 and says nothing about does or bucks, but the primitive and still hunting there are doe days and bucks only. Does this mean that as long as I'm bow hunting I can harvest a doe?

Does anyone know what the lake level is at Indian creek? I have looked everywhere and can't find anything. I heard there is a lot of water around the Alex area any info would be great want to make a trip tomorrow. Thanks

Looking to buy a few reels but not sure which one to go with. I'm looking at the Daiwa T3 Ballistic or Lew's Tournament series. If anyone has fished with either of these reels any feedback would be great. Thanks

Been fish all my life and have seen pics and seen people on tv do it and always want to do it myself, catch 2 fish in 1 cast. It finally happened 2 weeks ago and then happened again today the first one was on an a-rig and the second was on a 5XD. Have had a lot of fun on the water this summer and hope the bite doesn't slow down anytime soon

does anybody know if the water in henderson is still high or is it falling

March 05, 2012 at 10:14am

Was just wondering if anybody knows if the public boat launch in henderson is still full of Lillie's thinking about going sat

January 19, 2012 at 4:22pm

have only been able to make three hunts and have shoot limits every time but what really made these trips special was that my brother killed two bands in two hunts. this is the first time ether of us has killed a banded bird. The first one kinda made me feel a grudge but after the second band i knew this was something special. Will admit i should have killed but i missed and he cleaned up behind me. But will say im glad to be the one who brought him and witnessed him shooting them

September 21, 2011 at 12:46pm

me and my dad are thinking of fishing the dog fights today but neither of us have fished them and wanted to get some info if anybody knows. What time does it start and finish, where do you register, how much does it cost and how many fish can you weigh in?

April 07, 2011 at 11:15am

I checked out the breaking news and went to the wildlife and fishiers but what are they trying to do? Are they trying to put a slot limit in Toledo Bend? If anybody knows please reply

March 30, 2011 at 6:49pm

March 16, 2011 at 11:35am

February 28, 2011 at 2:15pm

Anyone fished lake martin lately thinking about making a trip this weekend just wondering how the bite is

January 27, 2011 at 9:29am

Maybe yall can help me out. Im wondering who decides when the deer season should open each year? I hunt in area 3 and our rifle season is already two weeks in and before we know it our seasons going to be over and it seems like it just starting to cool off and the hunting is starting to heat up. I also bowhunt and let me tell you opening weekend was so hot that it was almost unbearable. Instead of opening on sept. 18 why couldnt they push the start date back till october maybe yall can tell me the reason why r why not.

October 22, 2010 at 9:24am

My dad, brother and me made a trip to toledo and had an awsome time. Got there tuesday around 10 and fished till dark and had 19 keepers then wensday fished from 6 till noon and ended the trip with 29 total keepers and around 40 all together.

April 12, 2010 at 1:31pm

i was thinking about investing some money into stocking up on swim baits the only thing is i have never fished with them. watching the pros and they always are catching. was wondering if anybody has had success and how to work the bait thank in advance.

April 04, 2010 at 12:44pm

went to lake martin sunday was very dissapointed. it takes me an hour to get there and i was there at 6 am. threw a buzz bait early morning then threw a watermelon red fluke, fliped a watermelon red brush hog around just about every cypress tree, i also threw a rattle trap and some top water and caught nothing. Im not looking to take anybodies spots but can someone help me out locating some fish. all i have is a 14' flat with just a troling motor so i cant go far. Well good luck fishing and Thanks

March 31, 2010 at 10:54am

A comment titled: Thanks in response to a report titled: Area 10 question

Thanks for the input. I see where your coming from. The way it is on the web sight is kind of miss leading. The way they have the archery it's like it's either sex if your hunting with a bow.

A comment titled: 14in fish in response to a report titled: Basin Bass

Here is one of about 10 fish this size me and my partner caught in the basin this summer. Our best day we had around 17lbs we had 2 fish that were right at 5lbs.

A comment titled: More 14in fish than you think in response to a report titled: Basin Bass

If you are saying there are hardly any 14 in fish in the basin your crazy. Just go on Thursday afternoons and go look at the fish brought in for the dogfights. With three fish to be in the money you better have at least 5.5 to 6 lbs if not more. I can send you 5 pics of doubles that my buddy brother and I caught out there all keepers from this year. Look I know there are a lot of 13 to 13.5 in fish but there are plenty of 14 in and better. Here is something to think about also if we would have a 12 in size limit then we would have to hear about the fish are to small. This isn't a reservoir Henderson will never be a place u go to catch a monster.

A comment titled: stupid people in response to a report titled: Guide to duck hunting

I know where you are coming from. I have a cousin that farms rice around our house and every year they will flood up a cut for us. Its probobly 15 acres and we have a pit blind. This year with it being so dry we didnt flood it up until we caught some rain. I went out and fixed two ditches with a shovel by myself in the pouring rain. Me and my brother were having one of the best years ever just for some of my other cousins and all their buddies to come and set up in the corner of the same field cutting us off. Let me reminded you 15 acers with two blinds talk about aggrivating

A comment titled: henderson in response to a report titled: Water up and still catching nice bass

what area are you fishing. The first time we went the fish were off the bank in about 3 ft of water but sat. we went back to the same place and had no luck. We moved into the flats and thats were the fish were. The only thing is that in a nother month the grass will be to bad and almost unfishable.

A comment titled: henderson in response to a report titled: Water up and still catching nice bass

im not saying you dont know how to fish but we have made two trips in the last month the first time we went we caught 35 with 3 keepers and went Sat 3/12 and caught 15 with 3 keepers 1 weighing over 3 lbs maybe your not throwing the right bait are are your fishing in the wrong area. Dont blame this guy cause you havent found the fish yet.

A comment titled: bass masters in response to a report titled: These guys are good

yeah i remember kvd saying that but what i would like to know is how many of these flats were not fished. think about how much damage one fisherman could have done if they could have found a flat just like that one. instead of fishing around 10 other guys they have had the thing to themself. Also i wonder how many boats are going to be fishing that spot in the next week after seeing the hogs that were pulled off of it

A comment titled: bass masters in response to a report titled: These guys are good

yeah i hear what you are saying i bet Greg Hackney is still kicking himself for leaving lake c. if he wasnt a local he probobly would have stayed in there with the rest of them. What a bad feeling also to be fishing within yards of kvd and seeing him just tearing them up

A comment titled: rage in response to a report titled: Broadheads???

get you the rage 2 blade have you ever seen what they do to deer. i was watching a hunting show and this guy was shooting into a half a cow with different types of broadheads and other ones would penetrate the shoulder but wouldn't go all the way through the rage would put the smack down and go straight through. rage is what i shot and i dont think ill switch any time soon.

I can send you to someone i know that is as good as they come if your around lafayette. I go to him for everything he's a local guy and i trust that he wont try to sell me anything that is not worth it.

A comment titled: fish in response to a report titled: toledo dend

we fished the south part of the lake around the dam. When we got there the winds were so strong we couldn't fish some of the areas we wanted so we went back in the coves and fished the grass lines with flukes and lizards. Fish were't to aggressive. it seemed like they keyed on the grass line in about 2-4 ft. of water. I think that the spawn is just starting because we could see beds but no fish. And yes i wish i was on the water instead of sitting through class right now

A comment titled: string in response to a report titled: Does string make a difference

the color might not matter but the size does for instice throwing a fluke with heavy string the bait will fall faster and will stay deaper than you might want it to

April 12, 2010 at 1:28pm
A comment titled: line in response to a report titled: Does string make a difference

yes maybe his presentation was different but i think i could have been the string. I don't know if yall were throwing the same lbs. this past weekend my brother, dad, and me went to the bend and were catching alot of fish except my brother yes his young but can still fish. All throwing the same bait the only diff was he was fishing with 20 lbs cajun line (red string) After about 10 or so fish b/w me and my dad he still didn't have a fish so i made him switch rods to some 12 lbs line and right off the back started catching. The line may have made his bait fall different.
