In response to Varnado

Look for the station, Lake Borgne - Long Point. Long Point is near the Rigolets and the mouth of the Pearl River. I used that reading when I bass fished the bottom of the Pearl many moons ago. It should be close.

Baton Rouge, LA USA

In response to Ole School
In the 80' to late 90's, I paid $7/dozen for super
jumbo crabs.
Today, $40+ per dozen for #2's or smaller and
even female crabs.
All of this has come from the change in the way
people justify what they spend.
Ex. " I spend $50-$100 everytime I go to a
restaurant, so what is wrong with paying $40+
per dozen crabs"?
If people cut back on wasting their money, the
price would fall just like gas has with the rise in
supplies.
Yes, crabs are over fished. Just take a ride in the
la. Marshes and you will spend most of the ride
dodging crab pots or taking one off your prop.

Stop and fish for an hour and a crab fisherman
will drown you with his waves, while he runs his
traps.

Jon

Gretna, LA USA

Hello folks. Would like some advice on
navigating offshore from either Delta Marina or
Joshua's Marina. Would be fishing out of a 24ft
center console.

Which marina would you use and what is the
best route to get offshore. From google maps it
seems almost a straight shot to the gulf but I am
not sure about shallow water or obstructions or
sandbars or whatnot. Does not seem to have a
defined pass like down in Venice.

I will attach a map of the routes I would assume
is safe to head offshore. I know that I could be
wrong.

Any advice from someone who is familiar with
the waters down there is appreciated. Thanks in
advance.

Mandeville, LA USA

This 4th reminds me of one 47 years ago.. 1968.
Yes, time marches on.  This report was in the
State Times, B R, La     Headline -across top of
page   -    Winning Marlin Races Deadline at
Miss Rodeo -- Under was 4 pictures.   Wording
of paper write up --  Flying Dutchman--Herman
(Dutch) Prager, president of the N O B G F C,
used a float plane to beat the 4pm Sunday
Weigh in deadline in the Mississippi Deap Sea
Fishing Rodeo.  The Blue Marlin Prager  flew in
from South Pass ,( strapped on the crossbars
between the floats,) where the Club conducted a
tournaent of its own at the same time the Ms
Rodeo was going on., attracted considerable
attention.  Here Prager helps with the unloading
of his fish from he plane. poses with it and - in
the right side photo - watches as the
weighmaster John Cook balances the scale at a
whopping 274 pounds.    Photos by Mike Cook.          
.                   Yes, those were the days that bring
back fond memories  of screwey ideas.   Last
offshore venture for Jane and I was with Guy
and Nacy Billups aboard his Nancy B -
Captained by Jim Lundsford.  Nancy boated a  
398# Blue and Jane a 42# Dolphin (Mahi Mahi)  
This ended my 30 years as Founder  and  
President of the NOBGFC.          Now after Reds
and Specs with Reliable Capt Mike Gallo and my
Buddy, also a Navy ex-Submainer, Al Calabrese.  
.So, Thanks for the Memories.  Hope your Day
was Safe and Enjoyable. God Bless America.  
We do have so much to be thankful for.

In response to Stormin Norman

The LWF license site is confusing. I chose the driver's license "method of identification" and got the same "no record on file" message. I went back and used "LWF #" which is the number off of last year's license and it immediately went through. Not sure what happens if you don't have a prior LWF #. Also I was very disappointed to learn that they no longer mail out a waterproof license.

Metairie, LA USA

We launched out of Hopedale, Louisiana.
Breton Sound Marina
Friday Morning
Line to Launch was 20 or so boats in front and then 20 boats behind us.

1st time seeing a boat slip off its trailer while backing into the water.
But it happened.
It was a larger boat, and for some reason as they were backing up to launch the boat, the boat slipped off before getting the boat all the way in the water.
The hull may have some damage.

I will make sure the boat is hooked up when backing down from now on.

The guys tried pushing the boat back by hand,but could not budge the boat so they had to use the trailer bunkers to get the boat floating.

Hope their trip ended better than it started.

We fished Bay Eloi area.  Lots of small trout.

We moved around, and ended the day with 9 keeper Specks.  1 was a 16inch trout.

That was our big one of the day.

We fished with live shrimp under a popping cork.

The wind was light for once.
The cloud cover helped with the heat.
So all in all a great fishing trip.

We also say a Key West boat, with a family of three (3) that was being towed back into the marina. Hope they had SEATOW.

Sweetwater Marina, Capt. Jack

Delacroix, LA USA

Today at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island
the fishing was good and the weather was HOT.  
Before our report we just want to wish everyone
a great 4th of July weekend.  And we just a
reminder, please be safe on the water this
weekend.  We had an incident with a customer
having heat related issues, so please keep that
in mind also when thinking about being safe this
weekend.  On a scale of 1-10,  Capt. Jack says
today the fishing rates about a 6.  Reds, Black
Drums and a good amount of Bass seemed to
be the what was being caught today.  Some
anglers reported catching as many as 40 Bass.  
As for Speckled Trout, other than a couple
groups catching a decent amount, not too many
Specs were caught.  CAPT. JACK'S FISHING
TIP - Just grab some live bait and hit your
favorite spots.  Also, the fishing seemed like it
was a little better toward midday.  We will have
live shrimp for tomorrow and would love to see
you.  So come on down to Sweetwater, the
marina that loves their customers.   And
remember we are the second launch.

If you are interested in a charter or lodging
please call 504-342-2368.  We are coming up on
one of the best times of the year for fishing, so
don't wait to book.  A smalll deposit will hold your
reservation.  Hope to see you soon.

Capt Chad / Cajun Unlimited

Venice, LA USA

This week the fish have been showing their presence
more and more.
There is not a trip where the fish are not ridiculously
plentiful. So many varieties of fish, and the red fish
are never ending on every fishing journey here in
Venice.
Trout bite has been slow with the high river.
That has began to change the past three days.
Limits of trout caught all over today.
Kevin Hayes and his daughter Emily and son Charlie
had a great adventure.
From catching red snapper and red fish, to trout and
releasing numbers of drum fish and sheepshead in
the mix.
Not to mention the catch and release of 30lb plus
reds they caught.
Their laughs on the way home made me laugh as I
purposely trimmed the bow down and caused waves
to splash their faces in the cool Mississippi river.
Until next summer when the return for their annual
fishing trip. They will still be talking about their
fishing and water ride with Cajun Unlimited.

Venice, LA USA

Double up fishing trips last weekend.
Red fish crushing the corks and bait early with Robert
Wolfe family and friends. What a beautiful pre
Father's Day. Red fish ripping line out, lines crossing,
red fish splashing. This family worked together and
caught some serious bull reds. All 30lb plus with
trout in the mix.
Then at 2:30 back on the water again with Dr.
Rabalais friends and the boys to finish up another
awesome pre Father's Day extravaganza. Big reds had
the boys holding on and dads tossing in trout on a
beautiful afternoon.
One pole was setting on the side the boat with the
cork floating next to the boat for one minute. A bull
red grabbed the line and in an instant it skated across
the water and was gone. What an incredible day with
incredible family's in Venice Louisiana.

Elmers Island USA, LA Unknown

In response to Mike Lane

Mike,
I just picked up 5 dozen from Pincher's
in Bayou Caddy for a party in Bay Saint
Louis.  They were #1's but not jumbo.  
Nice crab with some weight.  I bought the
last #1 at 11:30 today but they said more
were coming in after lunch.  $40 a dozen
but worth it to me. I used to catch 2
hampers of jumbo's every day off our run
on Carr Dr. back in the day. Crabs have
become a luxury item. I guess they will
be fished out pretty soon to.  
Cheers!

Second week in June. Had a wonderful time with Ed
and his wife from Wisconsin. Sharing the varieties of
fish stories from the North and South. Big game fresh
water in below freezing weather in Wisconsin to hot
80 degree Louisiana for the big salt water game. Ed's
wife proved she can handle big red snapper and big
red fish.
And to finish up the day Ed took a ride with me to
catch live bait for the next upcoming trips.
What an experience fishing and catching live shrimp
and croakers with Cajun Unlimited.
Second week in June. Red snapper limits, hundreds of
young red fish and bull red fish, mangrove snapper,
speckled trout, drum fish.

ABSOLUTELY AS GOOD AS IT GETS!

This morning we had two boats out for regular Billy Boykin and crew from Jackson, MS.

On my boat it was Billy, Kristen, Mike & Kaylee. On Capt. Zach's boat it was Charlie, Chris & Tommy.

We left out of the Delta Marina in Empire, LA early this morning with the weather looking great. The wind was light out the south with an incoming tide just the way we like it.

Both boats got on an early bite and stayed on it most of the morning.

We called it a day at noon with 150 Speckled Trout, 30 Redfish, a pair of Puppy Drum and a pair of Flounder.

It was a great day on the water and all the anglers had a wonderful experience.

CHECK OUT OUR PHOTOS!

BIG THANKS AGAIN TO BILLY BOYKIN!

GREAT BIRTHDAY TRIP!

This morning we had David and Desiree from Baton Rouge, LA on board.

We left out of Delta Marina with the weather looking good for Speckled Trout fishing. Our first stop was the right choice as David and Desiree put their limit of 50 Speckled Trout and a beautiful Redfish on ice.

Delacroix by way of Kenner, LA, LA USA

It's been a long time since I've
posted, mostly because I've been out
of the water for a while...

Back out to Delacroix yesterday and
had a decent trip, especially with
all of the not so good reports that I
have been seeing.  Lots of annoying
little problems that tried to dampen
the day, but that has to be expected
when things have not been used in a
while....Lost the cajun anchor when
the rope popped.  Motor for the live
bait would not work, luckily had a
small pump and was able to rig it up
to keep the bait alive for a while
anyway.  Got soaked at the end of the
trip.  But still better than not
going....

Wound up going home with 22 trout, 2
redfish, 1 drum.  Five of the trout
just made the 12" mark, the rest were
decent with four or five real nice
ones.  Probably kept one for every
two caught, so another couple of
months or so, there should be plenty
trout.....

In response to Varnado

There is no tide table for Rigolets. Your best bet is to use the Rigolets tide gauge, and add an hour to the next day. Tides are an hour later each day in SE Louisiana. This trick will not work twice a month during the neap tide transition. Neap tide is when there is little tide movement. The Rigolets tide gauge is at: http://waterdata.usgs.gov/la/nwis/uv/? site_no=301001089442600&PARAmeter_cd=00 065,72020,63160,00060

In response to Robert.

It has been a while since i have been
there but pointe aux chene marina has
rooms for rent. They are nothing
fancy but they have AC, bunk beds,
cable tv, a full bathroom, and a
place to leave your boat in the water
and are quite reasonably priced. I
have friends that go down a lot and
every time i've been there we have
had a great time. The people that run
the marina are good folks and they
usually have live bait (cocahos).

Oneofthepack

Slidell, LA USA

             TEAM JO-JO

They past few days where a baseball type of week & weekend, Big William (aka Oneofthepack2) and his team (Slidell Socks) took the honors again. They now have (3) rings having winning 3 tournaments in a row, what a mix of 6 year old talent, characters, personality, and lovability, all of which varied as much as the many fishes in the marsh.

Today’s crew, (no baseball players) Big Andrew, Big Ronnie, (aka Wildman, aka Dago) when aboard the Bay Flat Sr. for a fun day down in our Disney World known as Delacroix Island, it was our intention to try all areas, (Zone 1, 2, 3, & 4) of our wonderland, but zone 2 of the designated fishing area gave us all the action we needed for the day.

SIGNS:

• Slidell Socks baseball team, was, is, are, and will be hot this weekend for the World Series sure hope the coaches & team bring home another ring.
• Tuesday night CCA meeting was a hit and very informative, Capt. Kris, and another Capt. (names escape me now) shared a lot of their fishing experience with the crowd, must have been 35 plus fisherperson at the meeting to learn and share fishing stories.


The one thing that rang out and was indicated and very clear by both Captains was to get an early start, be in you spot just before and/or at day light, catch your limit and be heading back home by 9:30 – 10 am.

Big Andrew and Oneofthepack meet (3) new fisherfriends, Big Bobby, Big Harold, and Big Gorge (Big Gorge (rodreel.com poster) and I where to set up a meeting place, to  meet in person one day to talk fishing, today was that day.

Big Cadillac was their spreading the word of the art, technique and knowledge of fishing from shore, he is the best land fisherperson we know, and he knows all the hot spots for catching fish without use of a boat.

All (6) of us are let’s say from the same vintage, (Like real old bottles of wine) and we all had the same concerns, finding fisherperson to fish with that is as old, set in our ways, and have the ability to understand what we are referring to as we discuss old days and old ways, but all agreed we are working on this need.

• Saw a Bunny rabbit along Oak Harbor Blvd on the way home from CCA meeting, time to go fishing was my thoughts.
• Early start, picked Big Andrew up at 3:45 off to Team Jo-Jo’s official meeting place, Waffle House in Chalmette to meet up with Big Ronnie.
• No boats on Hwy
• No boats in gas stations
• No boats at boat launches
• Made the call, ONE CALL that all, and Last Stop had our ham & Swiss, dressed w/salt & pepper ready for us when we showed up.
• Made it to the Bay Flat Sr. abode, loaded her up, off to Lionel’s for some go juice, ice and dead bait, (Big Andrew felt he needed some help, but did not use one piece of bait) then off to spot #20.

CONDITIONS:

• Perfect
• Partly cloudy, kept the sun off of us for awhile
• Mild temp, warm, warmer, hot, hotter, red button popped out around 9:50 am, time to head in
• Water temp 86F
• Water level 1.5 to 2 foot low
• Water clarity on a scale of 1-7 was a 2 plus, not that good, almost a return home trip without even trying.
• Caught the start of a rising tide, came in all day, real nice tide movement with the crabs swimming with the tide, this a good sign.
• Wind 1-2 mph (if that) W.N.W stayed calm all day
• Saw one boat pass us by

TECHNIQUE / STARTIGY:

• Catch the start of the tide
• Fish with lures
• Anchor up cast & retrieve
• Oak River Troll, all fish caught with this technique
• Fish the area that has been producing for the past 4-6 weeks
• First Oak River Troll drift, dropped down the H&H purple beetle, current moving the Bay Flat Sr. east to west, BAM 14” spec, Oneofthepack yells out only 74 more Silverwodners to go.
• Catch what catch can

LURE DU JOUR:

• Dead shrimp, never made an appearance, but Big Andrew will enjoy them with his next meal
• Me think the 3” H&H Purple beetle matched up with H&H ¼ oz. round whited head w/gold hook, edged out the Matrix Shad Lemon Drop matched up with H&H ¼ oz. round white head w/gold hook.
• H&H Purple beetle 90% of fish caught
• Matrix Shad 7% of fish caught
• Other (Big Andrew lure) 3 % of fish caught

AREAS. SPOTS, NUMNERS ON THE MAP FISHED:

Spot # 20, 21, 22, 23 (2) t, (8), (1) d, # 17, 2A, 2, stopped fishing at 9:50 broke out the sandwiches and headed in to bet the heat.

OUR REWARD:

• Lived to fish another day
• (2) Silverwonders
• (8) Reds (1) Rat size, (2) 25-26” (5) 28-30”
• (1) drum 21# plus
• (1) Gaff Top
• (2) Popped lines big fish, Oneofthepack’ s 10# Big Game struggling to handel them
• (1) Crab
• (5) Oyster shells
• (1) stick
• (2) Bushels of grass
• Best ham and Swiss, thanks Big Last Stop, you made our day
• Big Ronnie provide the drinks and snacks which we enjoyed during the slow periods
• Best fishing trip of my life, until the next one.

FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY:

Big Andrew had the bow under control, Oneofthepack occupied and managed the stern, Big Ronnie anchored down the Bay Flat Sr. amidships, each of us caught our share, however Big Ronnie was on rush with the H&H purple beetle, reds, rat reds, cats, you name he was pulling them in. Big Ronnie was fisherperson today for sure, with Big Andrew have a close last with Oneofthepack.

SUGGESTIONS:

Fishing inside not a lot of action, but you can find some good steady action chasing the Silverwodners & reds in the Oak River area. And the technique of choice has been the Oak River Troll, and it has been the producing technique for the past 4-6 weeks.

PONDER OF THE DAY:

“Haven't had much luck fishing-but I did marry the catch of my life”

Just got back from Gulfport, Slidell Socks did it again, competed a double header, going into the semis 2 and 0, go socks.

Weekend looking like more baseball, will be off the water till next week, BUT Loveofthepack heading to Montana Thursday to do her (38) Marathon, so Oneofthepack will be free and clear for a few days of fishing, hope to see all you fisherperson out and about, un tile then:

Good Fishing

Team Jo-Jo & Oneofthepack

P.S.

Big Don, reds are still there, me think a few have your name on it.

Shell Beach, LA USA

ONE STOP SHOPPING…..

Had the pleasure of guiding Tommy with United and some of his clients. We headed to the edge of the bay and made one stop on a platform. The fish started to bite good immediately, then after the first 30 to 45 minutes things shut down. Before we left I repositioned the boat and it was ON like Donkey Kong! In short order we met the quota with a box of pretty trout. It was another great day fishing in Louisiana just minutes from downtown New Orleans!

All fish were caught with 13 Fishing Green Omen and Envy Rods teamed up with FINS WINDTAMER BRAID on Campo’s live shrimp under corks and tightline.

Bill

Slidell, LA USA

Solunar tables are definitely not a bunch of
garbage. Animals are most prone to feed at
periods of the day when the moon is directly
overhead and directly underfoot. It has to do with
the gravitational pull being strongest at those
times. There is evidence as far back as the
Mayans using solunar tables on cave walls. Most
of the bucks I have killed have been during the
period of time that a solunar table said would be
the prime feeding time for that day. A major front
can obviously change animal movement, but
they absolutely are worth looking at.

Personally I would take the beautiful ride
down Bayou Loutre to Bay Eloi and fish the
rigs in Eloi, where clean water should be,
and then go towards the end of Loutre and
fish the points and bayou mouths.  Pristine
area with plenty of reds.

I am a long time rec angler. Recently I have had
discussions with another angler about solunar
tables. I do not understand this ,Sounds like
something written by the same people who write
horoscopes. Is there any scientific proof or is it
garbage ?

Winds are forecast pretty high Friday.
Clean water hard to find right now. I'd
try the MRGO rocks first on the channel
side, water will be clean there. You
will need to weed through the trash
fish this time of year though. Bring
plenty shrimp. If you can, try some of
the rigs in eloi on the bottom with
live shrimp. Lastly, inside for reds
will be a good bet. Biloxi marsh area.

I have a crew of friends coming in town tomorrow from Georgia.  We plan on fishing in either the Hopedale or Delacroix areas on Friday.  I'm looking to give them the experience I've always bragged about, and let them know just how far Lake Lanier is off from our waters here!  Would anyone like to give me any particular areas I should try?  Any help would be appreciated.
