slidell, LA USA

Friday fishin was not part of the “honey do” plan , so today had to do,(Happy Easter ),after talking to a Crabber Saturday night, I still wanted to make a short trip to the east end of lake Pontchatrain. The pearl river water he said made it’s way there was thick. I tried a spot along some pilings, with only one  red to show for a lot of casting. Headed to the twin span and found some fairly slow moving ,cleaner water and caught a flounder. Stayed in that area till 10 when I called it a trip. Tried Kamikaze Matrix under a poppin cork, dark Green matrix and purple beetle on 3/8oz round white jig head. Poppin cork did in the red and the rest was a toss up,  tight lined. Water temp was back down to 62 in the Rigolets and 65 in the lake. Water clarity was a 2 at the east shore and 4 at the bridge. Light NE wind 5-10 and a steady falling tide. Fished from 7-10 and ended with:
5 specks 14-16”
1 -Red -17”
1 - flounder
1 - fought it, but never saw it, but 2ft of slime on the line hinted at gaff top. (Do fresh water cats slime a line like that?)

We need warm, dry weather bad.

Oneofthepack

Slidell, LA USA

            TEAM JO-JO
           Saturday Trip

Good Friday was a success, we must have had well over 100 plus family & friends show up for the annual Family get together, Big Bubba orchestrated the event at his home on Plaza Drive in Chalmette from noon to dark thirty.

After assisting with cooking all day Oneofthepack was a little tired and decided to sleep in Saturday, got  up at 7:30 AM looking for something to do. Big Ronnie could not go, (4) fisherperson at the party said they would like o make a trip, but all could not go Saturday, so I called Big Rusty knew he would not let me down.

SIGNS:

• Late start
• Saw 10 – 15 boats lined up along the trestles as we rode down to our Disney World known as Delacroix Island.
• Stopped at Waffle House in Chalmette for breakfasts
• Fisherpersons & crabberpersons where stacked up all along Hwy to Delacroix, from Riggio to Lionel’s
• Made sure I had the plug in the Bay Flat Sr before lowering her into the water
• Not many boast out, in the evening we had the whole area to ourselves
• Timed it perfect to catch the evening falling tide

CONDITIONS:

• Perfect
• N.N.W. wind 12-15 mph steady
• Cool temps
• Sunny & clear
• Tide rising all day, stopped at 4 started to show signs of coming in around at 4:15 PM
• Water clarity on a scale of 1-7 was a 3 minus, clear but sandy looking
• Tide and wind in opposite directions

TECHNIQUE:

• Find spot numbers with wind to our back and anchor up cast & retrieve, most Silverwonders caught this way
• Tight line on the bottom let the current move the lure along and giving it a little twitch ever now and then.
• Bits where hard to feel, you never got a tap, line would get heavy, just had to set the hook every time you THOUGHT you had one on.
• “OAK RIVER TROLL” caught a few, tide and wind in opposite directions this condition was not conducive for Silverwonders.

LURE DU JOUR:

• 3” H&H purple beetle matched up with H&H ¼ oz round white head proved to be the best today.
• But the Lemon Drop Matrix Shad matched up w/H&H ¼ oz round white head w/gold hook did some damage
• Big Rusty managed to get a few on the 3” H&H purple beetle with white tail, matched up with H&H 1/4oz round white head w/gold hook.

AREAS / SPOTS / NUMBERS ON THE MAP FISHED:

#5(1)T6,45,46,47,48,49,49A(15)t,13,13,21,25,25,24,23,22(3)t,17,19,18(7)t,18A,18B,61A,61B.64,64A,64(1)t,63,61A,61,21,(4)t,22,23, stopped fishing at 4:40, Big Rusty said he had enough, headed the Bay Flat Sr north, and 20 minutes latter we were at Lionel’s.

OUR REWARD:

• Got to sleep late
• Lived to fish another day
• (31) Silverwonders 20 throw backs
• (2) Oyster shells
• (3) Sticks
• (2) Bottoms
• (1) Bushel of grass
• Relaxing day on the water with Big Rusty, one of the best Yankee fisherpersons I know.
• Best fishing trip of my life, until the next one.

FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY:

Big Rusty caught the first keeper Silverwonder, biggest Silverwonders, almost the most Silverwonders, and he caught the first ever of its kind that I have ever seen caught, the front seat, almost broke his pole in half with the sidearm cast, so without any doubt, Big Rusty was Fisherperson of the day for sure.

SUGGESTIONS:

Me think we missed the bits for the day, both the morning and evening, we were in good shape for our crazy 15 minutes, but needed to fish another hour or so to get the tide falling a little faster, as for the morning we will never know because we had a late start. You might want to do what we normally do get a early start and fish your way until / into the crazy 15 minutes of catching.

Keep moving, we could not find them stacked up anywhere, but did manage to catch 1 or 2 at each spot, suggest you find areas where the water is chocked down, and tide is morning good around a point and / or coming out of a cut or pass.

5 Am, should be going fishing, but HAPPY EASTER, thinking of taken the family to Waffle House for brunch, see all you fisherperson out and about, until, then:

Good Fishing

Launched out of Breton Sound Marina.
Mr. Glen was there helping everyone as usual.

We bought 25 cacahoes, but that was too many for today.

We headed towards Bay Eloi, but once we were there, we decided to head back towards Bayou La loutre.  Too many white caps in the Bay Eloi area.

Stopped at Blind Lagoon.
1 large redfish.

Headed to Stump Lagoon and fished Muscle Bay areas.

We caught a few trout, but not anywhere close to a limit.

We did better than I was expecting for this time of the year.

Best trip of my life until the next one.

Wind was pretty strong all day.

Still cold on the water early in the morning, so bundle up before you get on the water this time of the year.

Also use plenty of Sunscreen as I forgot since I was cold.
All red when I got home.

I have gone alone before but just not as much fun and since I don't tournament fish anymore what's the point. I do believe you and applaud you for your research but still don't like the billboard.

Capt. George Ricks / GET-AWAY CHARTERS

Hopedale/Delacroix, LA USA

In Response To GaryFishaholic:

Dear Gary, A lot have been misled by the romantic tale that the river built the Delta. Yes it did over 7000 years, and it was a different river then. The river now has 1/4 the sediment it had prior to 1952, and half of that sediment doesn't get past Baton Rouge. But, the river has 15 times more nutrients, fertilizers, and chemicals than it had back then, and it was the overload of these nutrients that affected the root system of the brackish water marsh near Delacroix, causing it to peel up like carpet in the wake of the surge from Katrina. Delacroix lost 42 sq. miles over night, and 37 of those sq. miles was nearest the Caernarvon diversion.

Our billboard photo is courtesy of Standard Mapping. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, that one is priceless!!!

Mike Lane and I started this fight a year ago to inform the fishing and coastal communities of how devastating the large scale river diversions in the state's Master Plan will be. At first I was deemed a "bonehead" and that I had ulterior motives. Since then we have started the SAVE LOUISIANA COALITION, a non-profit which has the support of every commercial fishing organization, recreational fishermen, marinas, as well as every fishing related industry, and support from the Louisiana Restaurant Assn. We have been instrumental in the passage of resolutions and ordinances in St. Bernard and Plaquemines Parishes in regards to permitting any new diversions and have the support of both parish governments. We have been working in the legislature to get bills passed to protect our precious fishing resources from the mismanagement of operation of present diversions. We have recently been voted the #2 conservation group, second only to the CCA by a narrow margin.

I am proud to say I am President of the SAVE LOUISIANA COALITION. I get no salary, I do what I do to save a culture and heritage that is saltwater fishing in S/E La.

Captain Brett Ryan

Venice, LA USA

     Summertime is just around the corner folks. Our spring fishing in Venice has been about as good as it
gets. The lumps produced a few decent tuna this year, but it was far from spectacular. That did not really
matter though. Instead of chumming and drifrting all day we would run to the floaters on nice days. Live
baiting 60 to 100 pound yellowfin tuna in early March was the ticket. There has been plenty of live bait
available in certain spots. Hopefully, like last summer, live bait will be plentiful everywhere. Two weeks ago
I had a 500 pound Blue Marlin chase a 40 pound yellowfin we hooked, right up to the boat. I pitched the marlin
a live hardtail at least a six times before he disappeared. He had an appetite for something a little larger
than a measly hardtail. I would have tossed that yellowfin to him, but my big Marlin rig was still in Mako rig
mode, not anymore now. I have been seeing a lot of Marlin out there and have my eyes set on the prize. I see
May and June as some prime time for targeting these apex predators. I thought we may see a lot of big Yellowfin
hit the dock during Lump season since we didn't harvest as many large ones during shrimp boat season. This was
not the case. There have been ,a more than normal amount of, Yellowfin over 100 pounds hitting the dock now
coming off of the floaters. This summers tournament boards should be interesting. We have already run a few
overnight trips for tuna. The weather has warmed up a bit since the overnight Swordfish trip we ran back in
February. That was a cold one but well worth it going 1 for two on Swordfish. I'm ready for a stellar summer
season. Drop me a line if you are interested in joining us for some great times out on the blue water. My
FREEMAN 33 is one year old now and holding strong. The boat has helped us harvest a lot of fish in the past
year. My boat also has a thing for tuna virgins apparently. When the fishing has been down right tough for some
reason miracles have happened. We may only go in with one or two Yellowfin but guess who caught them?, the
virgins. I'm not talking about hooking the fish and handing it to them either. Usually chunking it's their line
they are running that gets hit. I try not to look into it too hard and just accept the gifts we are given in
those situations. Superstitions, luck, or right place right time. They all play roles in the game. I believe
luck is when preparation meets opportunity. Therefore, me, my crew, and my vessel are ready, willing and
prepared. Our summer dates are filling up quickly. I have been running out of Venice Marina and Cypress Cove
Marina. It just depends on what my clients are looking for. When I have groups of 2 or 3 anglers most have
opted for Cypress Cove Marina. They enjoy the new hotel and walking right out of the front door and onto the
boat. Larger groups tend to opt for the Venice Marina cabins or many houseboats available for rent. These are
great as well because I can pull right up to your cabin or houseboat pick up your group and head out quickly.
Whatever you decide to do we all hope to see you down in Venice this summer. Good Luck and Stay Safe out there.

Boiling crawfish 101 the most important part is the crawfish you get. Spillway crawfish if possible is the only way to go but everyone sells spillway right lol if you believe that. Size and time of life also plays a big part in your boil time. But like with fresh fish hard to go wrong with the true spillway crawfish.

Spent the day with kids at the aquarium
in New Orleans today. They have a
section dedicated to the rigs to reef
pprogram. After reading it I was
wondering if the people that put it
together realize what is happening to
the rigs that are being blown up? Took
me awhile but finally spoke to someone.
He said "they just blow off the top and
lay them over".I responded that they set
charges at the mudline and kill
thousands of fish that live there. He
had a shocked look on his face. Asked
about there position on the diversion
and he replied "we are not political".
Gave me the email for a director.
Johnhewitt@auduboninstitute.org  Anyone
know of him? I would like some
information on how many rigs have been
destroyed and how many more are are
destined for destruction? Thanks for the
help!!!!!

Legend

Kenner, LA USA

Delacroix arrived about 10:30. Boat hanging in the slip perfect. Crew arriving on time perfect. Plenty of eats and drinks perfect. Four man crew, The Legend, The Machine, The Paperman and a new guy we'll call The "Snowman" (I'll explain later)
So everything was perfect except for one thing, the wind was blowing about 15 to 20 mph. But figuring we had some experience fisherman on board, we figured we could get out of the wind somewhere and find some fish. WRONG
Actually the first 5 minutes started out great. First stop in Lake John and the Machine catches a 3 to 4 lb trout on his first cast. No BS this thing was huge. BUT we're in the Papermans boat and you guessed it NO NET. Anyway we got it in the boat. A minute later and the Snowman pulls in a trout only about an inch smaller. Again how we got this thing in the boat without a net is unbelievable. Another unbelievable 3 or 4 lb inside trout. Just a little side note, at this point the Paperman looks in the front compartment of HIS boat and says, "hey I found a net". At this point we are all looking at each other wondering if we are dreaming or what. Talk about an unreal start to a fishing trip. Well go figure, we fished 6 more hours and ended the day with 5 trout. After Lake John we fished 4 corners, several spots in Lake Fausan, Pontoons, Jake Nevette, Pt. Fienne, Skippy's, Oak River and even made a stop on the way in in Batola.
The winds were the only thing that was steady all day, a good 15 to 20 and maybe even 25 at times.
As for the new tough guy "The Snowman????????", 3 of us had on long pants with heavy tops and jackets, and we found that it was still a little cold. The SNOWMAN had on shorts with a short sleeve shirt and for the most part seemed very comfortable out in the nasty weather.
Thus we now have a Snowman living in the south.

The water is dirty down there right now with the winds.  You can allways go for redfish but you will need to stay in the protected bayous.  There are some pockets of trout up front still but it is going to be stick and move.  I would stay around Jefferson Lake canal and north end of Bayou Wilkerson.  Bring some dead shrimp and use a cork.  Good luck.

point. I'm sure they did many studies
to get it just right. Well, as it turns
out while they may have controlled the
salinity to some extent, they did not
take into account the devastating
effect it would have on the existing
marsh. Therein lies the problem. The
Corps has already openly admitted that
they are not sure what the long term
effects of a sediment diversion will
be, but they say we just can't sit
around and waste any more time thinking
about it. Sorry but that is just not
the way I roll!

Mike Lane, one last thing on boiling crawfish.  
Instead of timing your soak, the crawfish will
tell you when they are done soaking.  Stir them
occasionally.  Over time they will start to sink.  
Once the majority have sunk in the boil, try
one.  They should be done and enjoy!

In response to Capt. George Ricks / GET-AWAY CHARTERS

First off thank you for your research to help save our marsh. When I saw the billboard it just burned my butt why not mark the two maps 2005 and 2006 look what the siphon did right? I always thought it was the river that built the marsh have they mismanaged the siphon probably so did it have some positive affects I thought it did. Tournament fisherman use to go to Venice to catch the best fish now they go to Delacroix. What do both areas have in common a mix of fresh and saltwater. We definitely need our marsh to help protect us from the coming storms it our first line of defense. Anything we can do to protect it needs to be done. That's why I thank people like you that take the time to study and try to figure out the best solution's. Dredging why not lets do it anything to help rebuild the marsh is a good thing right. To me the billboard was very misleading but that's just my opinion of what happened. I guess I am the only one with this belief. Can't wait to go fishing so I can right a report about fishing I'm out of here.

Delacroix, LA USA

Last Minute Opening Saturday!!!!
I have a spot for this Saturday for a group of 2-4 people for a Easter weekend fishing trip! The fishing will be great this weekend with warming weather the trout should peek their heads out and give us a good day after this full moon that is passing now. We have a strong upside on the tide the next few days with a steady Easterly wind which pushes good clean saltwater into the Delacroix area and triggers the trout bite. Don't miss out on a great weekend, I'd love to have y'all down for a great day on the water, so call now!!!

Please call for 504-427-4973 for pricing!!!!!

While I will not argue that canarveron hasn't built anything like Mr Ricks continually says, it wasn't designed to build marsh. It was designed to control salinity. Masterplan diversions whether they work or not are designed to transport silt through a considerably different design than canarveron. Look, I agree dredging is a faster way to rebuild land. But if you don't nourish the land with new silt, one storm and its gone. Tell the truth folks, some of like the saltwater intrusion because it brings fish, shrimp, and especially oysters a helluva lot closer to the launch. My poor old step dad had to go out to BAY eloi to catch his oysters. Now they catch them in Lake robin. Its a damn shame only one side comes out on this website lately.

IN RESPONSE TO GARY FISHAHOLIC AND WINDMAN:

In regards to diversions and their effects on the marsh, below is a map I have previously showed. What you see on this map is "new water" or land loss after Katrina. The areas in red are the areas of new water. These areas are also where the river has had the most influence on the land. The blue line you see on this map is the path of the eye of Hurricane Katrina. The areas most affected were Caernarvon, the birdsfoot Delta, and Wax Lake. Please take note that the Biloxi Marsh to the right of the path of the eye was virtually unaffected by storm surge. High salinity marsh withstands storm surge.

Mike,
This is a good one.
1. 1-large jug of Zatarain’s extra
spice boil mix for a medium spice boil.
2. 3 tsps. liquid crab boil.
3. 2 cups vegetable oil for easy
peeling.
4. 10 medium onions.
5. 1-5# bag of red potatoes.
6. 12 lemons cut in half.
7. 1-box mushrooms.
8. 1-bag 0f froze corn on the cob.
9. 6 head of garlic cut in half.
10. Optional: 2 pounds smoked
sausage and 4 artichokes
If your crawfish are not pre-purged and
you want clean crawfish (interior
digestive track) place crawfish in a
large ice box with a strong aerator for
2-3 hours along with a couple tsps. of
salt.  Some suppliers now aerate them
overnight, but that’s when they come
straight out the pond.  
Cover pot and bring water, Zatarain’s,
lemons, onions, and liquid crab boil to
a rolling boil and boil for 10 minutes.  
Add potatoes and mushrooms (and
optional sausage or artichokes) and
boil for 5 minutes.  Add crawfish and
bring back to a rolling boil.  Add
garlic and boil hard for 5-7 minutes
depending on size of crawfish.  Cut off
burner and add frozen (already cooked)
corn, stir and let soak for 20-30
minutes occasionally stirring to
release heat.
Bon Appetite!

From Mike Lane:

Thanks you DJ, sounds great!

Grand Isle, LA USA

I hope everyone's getting some bites!

I am taking a trip to Grand Isle this weekend and
again at the end of the month. I have been
fishing the past few years without a boat and
mainly fished the rocks and beach by the
marina. This year we are lucky enough to have
access to a boat. We are going to fish for Specs
and Reds but would like to find a rig or two that
we can catch some big fish on (its been 5 years
since we have gotten this opportunity)!

My questions are as to locations for specs and
reds and also the location of a rig that may have
some good fishing for this month. Directions or
GPS coordinates are appreciated along with
technique/hot baits right now!

Emails appreciated Tyler.Drude@selu.edu
