I'd like to get some input on bayboats. I had a 21' champion loved the ride and was very dry. Boat was totaled and looking for another. Friend wants me to get a 22 Kenner vision 2007 with opti 200. How does a triton or ranger compare?

You might want to check your transome. Got a chance to make a run to marsh island saturday. Launched headed out half way across the bay heard something from the motor area looked back and the motor looked loose pulled the throttlein nuetral looked back and the motor was gone that fast. What a day. waiting to see what the insurance people have to say. Anyone know where I can get a good deal on a new 225 or 250 yamaha let me know.

Looking for a little direction not gps locations but general areas. Went out Saturday left with the guide boats in dark. Headed north Mechant caught few under size trout. Moved to drift a few reafs nothing. Tried a few to a few to a few areas where the water seamed to be comming out the marsh nothing. Headed south along north Sister Lake nothing. Used High life blue, coco gleaux, and cajun pepper under cork and on bottom. Gess this is called putting your time in as a beginner.

Finaly fot a chance to get back out to the DU. My boys were out of school for the day so I took off work gone fishing. Got to first spot lower Lake Mechant birds diving every where first cast it was on. Everyone was catching. Fish were mixed between 11' and 16' little more than half were keepers. Then the tide peaked and everything shut down. Tried a few cuts with moving water but couldn't find them. Bait colors were cajun pepper and coco gleaux.

Finaly was able to get out to DuLarge. Headed out to the pickets picked up a few smaller 12 and 13 trout. Headed out to enstar nothing. Continued on to coon point fished the rocks picked up a few more smaller trout and a small shark which was released. Moved and a school of larger trout came in and we picked up a few larger ones but they moved out quickly. By this time my two boys were flat worn out lol. Could not get in a good steady bite ended with 11 good trout. Headed back towards the end of the week to try again.

Me and my boys have just started salt water fishingin a 21' bay boat. Tried vermillion bay, and the point. Not much luck there. Tried rollover,and joph's harbor found shrimp ,crabs and a few trout one trip. Thinking of going to golden meadow this weekend any help would be greatly appreciated.

Me and my 3 boys decided to try the reserve Sunday. Left early morning stopped at Sporting store out of Kaplin picked up crabbing bate and extra net. Didn't pack the boat like I normally would had an extra ice chest and left the poles on the floor of boat. Well got to Joph harbor landing found that i lost the extra net, ice chest, and 2 poles along the way. Long story short found where the shrimp were running 4 cast and we were dun. Caught a few crabs and no fish. headed back and the wardens were out. Measured the shrimp by the marks on the 5 gallon bucket. I was 3 pounds over acording to the warden. Lost the shrimp and got a ticket. Moral to this tie down your gear and watch your limits very close.

I'm running a 22' blazer bay Pro with a 250 yam runs great and great on fuel. I think you might be under powered with 150.

How far out did you have to go to find trout? I have been going to dularge. The point would be a lot closer drive.

A comment titled: apreaciate the reports guides in response to a report titled: Captains, What happen to the trout

I also went out Saturday and thought all the trout packed up and left. We tried coon point, and headed west to the rigs with no luck. Ran across some bulls feeding. That was the only action we had. Even tried for red on the way in with no luck.

A comment titled: vermillion bay in response to a report titled: Vermilion Parish Fishing Help

I'm also new to fishing in vermillion. Save your self a lot of time make the 2.5 hour trip east to jug's landing in bayou dularge or west to big lake for specks and reds. Jophes harbor, and Rollover great for shrimp and crabs. The point should get better once the water gets right. Vermillion Bay salinity levels change so much makes for tough fishing. Hope this helps.

A comment titled: hunting trout in response to a report titled: trout hunting

We were out there Friday morning. Is the bite better early in the morning? We end up getting out to the first stop about 8:00am. Maybe we are getting in on the end of the bite. Thats leaving Lafayette at 4:00.

A comment titled: beep in response to a report titled: Alarm Beeping

I had the same prob my mechanic said if i had a pulsing beep it would be the oil pump and if I had a constant beep it would be the waterpump. which is what i had a constant beep with the pisser still working. Gess the water pump just wasn't putting out enough. After changing the water pump every things good.
