Shot this big ole bird at 7:25am Saturday Morning in the Basin. he weighed 19lbs, 1 1/4' spurs and 13in beard. Not bad for my First Turkey.
Caught these babies with Hair Jigs that I made.
Southern, This is the sac my podna caught last year at Lake Martin.
Made a trip to Fausse Point yesterday to try out some of my new jigs i've been tying.. Tried just about every color that that i had but no keepers.. Picked up the bass gear after about 3 hrs of sac fishing and caught 2. One was a 16in 4 pounder and a 13in 3 pounder.. That was it. Had 2 buddies meet up with me and had 5 nice bass.. Water was dirty but fishable.. Tried my jigs in the Basin last year and did great. Can't wait till next weekend.. Gonna hit Gravenburg and Jackass bay and possibly Oak Ridge.. Good luck to all..
went to the wax this mornin after work to see if we could get a couple of birds. Got to the dock at about 6am and was at our spot at about 6:30..saw a few birds on the way. set up dekes and mojo and i was on for a lil while..Got 4 right off the bat but they got really slow.1 or 2 here and there..Finally got a 4 man limit at around 11:00...We picked up the dekes and the teal started poppin up all over the place..I guess thats how it goes sometimes..Been hunting 3 times so for and limited every time..3 people the first 2 hunts and 4 this mornin...Gadda love the marsh..
Went to the wax again this morning with ma 2 buddies and got our limits by 8:30.. Awesome morning. I even shot my first banded blue-wing drake..And to the guy that said teal dont have orange feet..bulls$%#...6 birds we killed had orange feet..I can save em for you if you want to see em...lol..good luck to all and be safe!!
me and 2 buddies of mine went to the wax opening day. got buzzed 10 min. before shooting time by about a 20 bird flock..had a few good flocks and a bunch of singles come shooting time. got a 4 man limit by 10am. all blue wing hens!! NO DRAKES.. never happened before...ill be back tomorrow same spot. took off work just to go play in the marsh!.. good luck to all. i hope yall had as much fun as i did
The bite is on people!!...Took a trip to marsh island today with a couple of podnas to fool around with some gar..Caught 4 from 3ft to 5ft. Then we decided to hunt down some reds but only caught small ones..A LOT of small ones on fresh shrimp under a poping cork in oyster lake..Then took off to a honey hole around southwest pass on a reef and busted up the specks on electric chicken under a poping cork..The first speck was 4lbs!!..We ended the trip early because of the dam oyster boats muddyin up the water..Ended up with 4 gar,23 specks,1 flounder, and 2 reds All off the same reef except the gar..Was an awesome trip!!..Hope to do it again next weekend!..sorry no pics,camera got stolen..No proof but believe it or not,doesn't matter!..I hope yall have some luck like we did..Good luck and be safe!
Caught this redfish on a crab in southwest pass !.28 1/2lbs
The other pic is my buddy Josh with 2 of the 6 bass he caught Saturday.
I went to lake martin tuesday mornin to try and put some slabs in the ice chest but no luck..I had one hit and that was it..I read yesterday in the Jim Davidson fishing report in the Quick Quater that the lake was sprayed for weeds last week.Thats why the fishing hasnt been good..I wish i woulda known that earlier!!!
I forgot to ask!!..Does anyone know a good outboard machanic around New Iberia?????...lol
Stayed up most of the night fixing my 40 yamaha. Finally got it runnin right! Hit the road to the Wax at 3:30 and met up with a couple of podnas..1st time there and I wanted an early start.Launched my 16ft tunnel hull in the Intracoastal and was nearly ran over by 2 tug boats and about 20 idiots haulin butt with no lights on thier boats!!..After what seemed forever, got to the spot my boys led me to and ran my boat into some elefant ears..I was never told I had to get out the boat and hunt standing up in 2ft of water..Thats a NEED TO KNOW kinda thing dont u think..Anyway,afer swattin about half of the states mosquito population, the war was on..OMG did them boys do some shootin!!..The only problem was that the shells I loaded my gun with were the same dam shells I left with..I saw maybe 8 teal in 3 hrs and i couldnt shoot at any of them..Aint that some luck,but it gets better!!..About 15mins after we left,my motor DIED and wouldnt start for nothing..So if any of you guys seen a flat bottom boat skippin across the water with a 25ft rope tied to the front,that was mine..lol..If it wernt for this guy,I dont remember his name,I still be out there bein pulled by lil 25 merc.So dude if your reading this THANKS AGAIN!!...There are not enough people like you in this world..And I promise you one thing,next time I see someone stuck in the marsh or in the middle of the wax outlet,im stoppin!!I hope you guys had a good laugh at my expense..lol...Good hunting and be safe ..TeddyT
Is a WMA permit required to hunt the wax?..Some people told me i need 1 but other people say i should't need 1 because its not a WMA..HELP!!!
Do yall think the front and back being darker than the middle will affect the ducks?..I just want to know if i should do something about that or not!..Any info will be appriciated!!...TeddyT
I was wondering if anyone can tell me where to find the laws and regulations on Bowfishing the basin???..I just finished setting up my boat to do some bowfishing at night and i wanna know if there are any laws i might be breaking by doin that.I checked wild life and fisheries but it doesn't say anything about it.Any input will be appreciated!
