the LDWF saltwater series redfish tourney was yesterday at Sweetwater in Delacroix. After the contestants weighed their fish in, officials tagged and released about a hundred redfish right there at the backdown ramp. May not have to paddle far for the next few weeks.

I have a boat in a rented shed at Joe's Landing in Lafitte. They called me to say they are close to leasing the entire marina out to BP and Coast Guard and NO RECREATIONAL FISHERMAN will be allowed to use the hoist or backdown ramp. Maybe for a year or so. Not final yet, but close.

I go there every so often. Have NEVER seen a kayak. BUT, I have one and sometimes i'll put my K2 in my boat and i'll run 6 or 7 miles south in my boat to coffee bay (see map) area and then launch my kayak. My personal opinion is the whole area that is within actual paddle distance from any of the 3 marinas is fished out and you would be better in hopedale. The last 3 trips I have taken with guides there to learn some spots, we haven't caught much.

with a state 25 billion BILLION dollar budget, how about introducing a bill to funnel a coulple lousy million to the DWF for the research that will PRODUCE tens of millions in revenue via offshore fishing ?? see the difference ?

A comment titled: june in response to a report titled: Need tips on best kayak spots

i remember last june in delacroix, at the louisiana saltwater redfish tournament, over a hundred redfish were weighed and then released right there at the backdown ramp of Sweetwater. Don't know if redfish migrate like trout, but there must be lots hanging right around the ramp close in. I doubt the fisherman in boats ever fished 50 feet from the launch ! lol put your kayak in there !

back in the early 80's around pass a loutre, shot a duck with a band and sent off for the info. Surprise surprise--the WLF said it was banded in Kentucky of all places!!

A comment titled: yep in response to a report titled: No Respect... Very sad

if this is the first time its happened, count your blessings. I've always thought that when there are seminars given by guides at stores or shows, this topic should be addressed a little bit by the speakers. Maybe a writer for LASMAG could even do a full page (to make sure it is seen) on the subject of approaching anchored boats with how to and pics etc.

A comment titled: no lites in response to a report titled: fine

I was stopped before daylight once in lafitte and once in shell beach only 100 yards away from the dock. No ticket, but the agent made me return back to the dock and wait for sun up. After being let off the hook twice, i took the hint and now keep on board /bought the $8 flashlight with the red/green bulb lens so i could duct tape or rig on the bow if i need to. Of course, haven't been stopped once i was in compliance. It is stupid to run without lights though.

A comment titled: delacroix in response to a report titled: Help with my sons Christmas trip to Venice :(

I know your plans are venice, but if you switch to Delacroix, shorter drive, lodging available too, everywhere you go will be protected waters, the boats you see will be more or less the same size as your boat, sweetwater marina will tell you exactly where to go, and your catch will be the same and probably better for a novice to the area.

I would suggest to the moderator of the site to remove the suggested culprit's name, lest bigger problems for the owner come up.

joe's landing in Lafitte is $70 mth and Breton sound marina in hopedale is $100 if you fish those areas. If you don't, may want to start !
