Legend

Kenner, LA USA

Reggio report with the Legend and Chef Guy #2. Left the launch about 7:45 a.m. in #2's nice 16ft. Stumpknocker w/ a 25 hp yamaha, this was an early start for the Legend. First stop, about 3/4 of the way out the canal headed for Lake Amadee.
Side note, I have never seen so many crab traps in a canal in all my years of fishing. Observed crabber picking up traps with only 1 crab in the 3 traps that I saw him pick up. GO FIGURE?
So our first stop and we pick up 6 trout in about 30 to 45 minutes. The tide was falling all day and the water was already very low when we left the launch.
Headed out into Lake Amadee and stopped close to the shore at one of my favorite points. The Chip Mans Point. Stuck the cajun anchor and started throwing lures under a cork. The water in the canal and in the lake was beautiful, the winds were calm and the tide was moving. After not getting a bite for 10 or 15 minutes, I pulled the anchor and started drifting into the lake. Again no bites and we were getting ready to move when I caught a 14" trout. At about the same time #2 caught a nice trout. At this point we were about 300 to 400 yds away from the shore, so I threw the anchor down and there we stayed for about 3 hours.
It was never fast, but just enough to keep us there and also because the trout were really really nice. I started fast putting 8 or 9 of the first 10 trout in the box. BUT then here comes Chef Guy #2. When he started he didn't stop. I mean he was out fishing me 2 to 1. At one point #2 caught 2 in a row that were in the 18" to 20" range. The guy was no fire, throwing 360 degrees around the boat. Why the trout were in this particular area of the lake, I wish I knew.
We stopped fishing about 12 noon as the winds really picked up about 11 a.m. at which time the bite had really stopped. The counter read 35, with Chef Guy #2 boating probably 20 of the 35 we caught. I have to give credit where credit is due. Of course #2 would tell you that he had to refer to his notes from previous trips with the Legend and re-rig as instructed by the Legend, before he really started catching fish.
Another great day on the water with a funny good friend and now even better fisherman. His boat ran great, the food and drinks were good and we both returned safely to the launch.
What more could two guys ask for.
Keep fishing,
See attached pictures as proof of the days work and of the ever learning student, Chef Guy #2.

CATCHIN UP

3-20-15
Awake at 5:30,decided to fish at 7:30, launched at the dock and at my favorite 5 mile long reef at 8:45. Dead calm , almost no tide (barely incoming), thick fog. Made a few cast mid lake and wasn’t feelin to confident with the lack of tide so I made the quick move to the south end of the Twin Span, where the tide seems to move faster . Polked around every pilin from the shore out to the 10th row, better fallin tide but no fish. Ran to the rocks between Irish Byu and the Chef and made most of the mile long drift,(perfect conditions, fallin tide and light sw wind), 1 huge red, returned to beat up another old man, or end up on the pit of someone that wants to clean it. Went to the eastern shore line of lake P and tried the poppin cork for awhile with out any takers. Quick stop at south end of Hwy 11 bridge, nothing. Back to my favorite  5 mile reef and got in behind a couple of fisher people trollin, they were catchin pretty regular I wasn’t catchin at all ,nothing worse than watchin somebody else catch fish, but decided to just stick it out since I already used up plans, B thru E. On one of the passes close enough to talk the troller said, “they aint huggin the pilins” or something like that, but the info was appreciated and I started fishin the bait all the way back to the boat about a long cast off the pilins, THANK YOU MISTER TROLLER . About the same time the phone rings, Wife, “you got fish”, “none”, ‘‘good we takin kids and grandkids to  Cuevas’s for fried catfish” What time”?, “I’ll call and let you know”. Now every fisher person knows that nothing will start a trout bite better than getting close to a STOP FISHIN time. First trout hit the box,about 1pm (Nice 15”), Nothing stacked up but every 5-10 pilins a speck added to the box. Only one undersize throw back, BUT 3- 20”ers, returned to make little ones,(Jeff would have been proud of my conservation efforts, ), also I don’t like to eat the big ones. About 3:30 phone rings, “time to come home”, AWW MAN!!!!!. Quick ride back to the still empty launch and off to fill up on “all you can eat catfish”.
Great weather and lack of crowds, made for a really pleasant trip, at the bridge and at the launch, Catchin was fun too. Started with the 3/8 oz jig head with every color plastic I could find, tryin to get to the bottom as close to the pilin as possible, but switched to ¼ oz round head with chartrues beetle and lemon drop matrix did most of the catchin. Cast right to the pilin and let the tide do the rest. Water temp, started at 68 and ended at 71, clarity was good, 7 on 1-10 scale, no tide to light fallin. Calm to start, light sw wind to calm, later in the day. On and off fog and clear skies, and hot.
Finished the day with
20 specks 13-18”(1 undersize and 3 big throw backs)
1- 26” red
1 36” red returned to grow
Many missed bites,

3-24-15
Really quick trip
Finished the medicare/ insurance ordeal at 11:30am, quick ride and launch at the Dock and chunkin at my favorite five mile long reef at 12:15.Got down current on the incommin tide, got the trollin motor set to slow drift north. That lasted for about 45 minutes when the trollin motor said batteries need chargin and the boat headed for the causeway. Been nurse maiding the batteries since December,I guess it's time. only had time to try 1 bait , purple beetle on a 1/4 oz round white jig head. Water was dirty 3 on 1-10 scale south end , east wind steady 5-10, water temp 68 ,incommin tide. Dropped the batteries off at Buddy Wilcox, goodyear on Gause for a charge to see if I need new battery(s) or is the charger the problem. Finished with
1- 16" speck
Tommorrows trip depends on the Battery situation.

3-30-15
Met AGFISH at byu liberty launch,at 8am, dead calm and the gnats were hungry, quick run to my favorite 5 mile long reef at the signal lights. Steady fallin tide had us chunkin on the east side of the pilins with only a bite every once in awhile.Tried the west side but the tide was too much to keep the boat positioned so we could both have a shot at the pilins. I like to fish the west side of the pilins no matter what the tide is doin, just modify the cast to let the current move the bait to the bridge instead of castin to the pilins. after many, many cast and a few fish we relocated to the area between 174 and the north draw, west side and started pickin up a few nice specks. Lots of fish were 50-60 feet off the bridge,(learned this watchin a fellow 100 feet away snagging um every other cast)away from the bridge. New battery for the trollin motor worked fine all day. Weather could not have been better,air movement, light sw, to calm, water temp 75, clarity south 5, north 8 on 1-10 scale. Tried lots of colors but the lemon head and tiger bait on 1/4 oz round white head did most of the damage(what little damage was done). Finished the day at 2:30 with 17 specks 12-18".Goin again tomorrow ,but getting an earlier start,6am, trollers said the bite was early, hate when that happens.

3-31-15
Me and Allen(AGFISH) , met as planed at Byu Liberty for 6am launch. Fairly quick launch,(I need to put a blinkin light on both sides of the ramp)forth try was a success. Smooth ride out the byu and started castin at fire break 5 on my favorite five mile long reef. Too dark to see the line so it was cast and retrieve and feel. First fish just at sunrise followed by 2 more shortly after .No fish for a while so we joined the trollin armada on the east side of the bridge and started pickin them off. No set in stone technique,(bump the bottom, slow retrieve, etc,) the best seemed to be cast and start foolin with the trollin motor remote, or try to get a loop out the line and BAM, fish on, whatever works. Again the wind was light and the tide fallin fairly steady in spite of the .6 predicted tide range. Every time the bite would slow to a stop the order for "one more cast" or "maybe we should run to 174" , produced another speck for the box and off we would go on another drift between fire break 3 and 5.Catchin stopped about noon ,so we relocated to 174 and managed 2-3 throwbacks. Both decided not to spend hours waitin for the bite to pickup, and off we went to BL for a easy pickup and home in 10 minutes. Lake was perfect again, calm and clean(8 on 1-10 scale) fallin tide and water temp about 70. I stuck with the lemon drop on a 1/4oz round white head, and purple and gold matrix on 3/8 head( may of these lost to the trestle monster.Allen tried some Sunami baits which we both agreed was the most realistic bait today, fish would have nothing to do with them they rather some yellow minno with a round white head (like no live bait I have ever seen), WTH. Had a great morning fishin and gonna have a great NAP now.
finished at 12:30 with
24 specks 14-18"
a few throw backs and 2-3 nice ones lost at the boat.

We had a discussion today involving the need to net 18 " specks. Yesterday we never lost a fish so it was determined , neting was a waste of time that often was the cause of loosing lake trout. After the second loss today we may have to rethink our "get um in the boat" stratigy.

Spotted the first hardhead catfish of the day caught by a youngster fishin the bottom with dead bait.

Capt. Tommy Pellegrin

Houma, LA USA

Jamie Miller, Billy, Jeremy and John came down to get out of the house and office and get into some of the fantastic fishing going on down in Dularge. we jumped in the Skeeter at 6:15 and off we went and it didn't take long to get the action started. Just as the sun was taking a peak out for the day the first bull was on. It started quick but faded quick also. The first stop found 3 or 4 fish but then died down to gaff tops. One move and it was fish on till the tide quit around 10:30. Try and imagine how many times you can cast and fight a big fish on light tackle in 3 and a half hours and that's how many we caught. Red and drum all coming in 2 to 4 at a time. I started wondering if the 5 dozen crabs I had was going to be enough. You figure it out; 60 crabs makes 120 baits, and mix in a few misses and a few catfish and you get lots of action on bulls. Then something strange happened when the tide went slack at 10:30. I started seeing some fish splashing on the surface a little ways away and was curious what was going on. This was a lot of fish looking like they were feeding and what I found confirmed the rumors that I had heard. It was Tarpon slow rolling everywhere. I grabbed the only baits that I thought I had that may do some good. A HLT Bunker swim bait and a Catch 2000 twitch bait. With tarpon rolling 30 feet from the boat we cast like mad men but only had one blow up on the twitch bait and missed. So with the nerves frazzled we went looking for something else to bite but just ended the day around noon feeling real good about what happened on this day. It was so nice to see tarpon from 20 to 50+ pounds in such a large school in this area again after a long absence. Also making a show is the trout so if you are wanting bulls or trout give me a call, Capt Tommy Pellegrin #capttommypellegrin  photo gang red_zpsnuadsgqe.jpg photo Dah Red_zps0mkgz1au.jpg photo Jamies red_zps9zxfzqfl.jpg[URL=http://s300.photobucket.com/user/capttommy/media/billys%20early%20red_zpst5kyqn0j.jpg.html][IMG]http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/nn23/capttommy/billys%20early%20red_zpst5kyqn0j.jpg[/IMG][/URL] photo billys early red_zpst5kyqn0j.jpg

Tommy Vince

Baton Rouge, LA USA

For the last three weeks I have seen less and less reports. Is it because fishing has just been slow or because this time of year the weather shuts everyone down? I fished Delacroix last week by myself and caught 18 nice trout and one nice bass not counting throwbacks and misses in about 3 hours and others were doing well. Not many boats at Sweetwater Marina though. Nothing hardly from Venice, Golden Meadow, Hopedale????
Hope reports pick up again.

Great Southern Louisiana Saturday afternoon. Hunter and I decided to ease off into the marsh on a little short fishing expedition after his ballgame. We paddled out to find the marsh as alive as she gets. Herons, Blue Winged Teal, Ibis, Gallinules, Marsh Hens, Otters, Alligators, and Coots, were everywhere we turned. The Water Lilly's were just starting to bloom in the Lilly Pad flats, and the wild flowers were starting their birth as well. The giant Bullfrogs were bellowing out and the Gallinules and Coots were crying out to one another. We weren't out there long before Hunter turned to me and said, "dad this is right where we belong, I've been needing this for weeks". Makes me happy to see my sons pleasure and appreciation for something that I've loved as well for all of my life. If all the beauty about us weren't enough, we were extremely blessed and were granted the full show, by Miss Mother Nature. The greenies were on the bite as well! We caught a mess of fish and even had a strike from a small gator in the area. He came from behind a stand of water grass, and before I could jerk the bait from his attack he was hooked.Fortunately he got off the line before we had to boat him. All of the fish caught were released, guaranteeing our next trip to be as awesome as today's. What a Louisiana Saturday it was..........early morning baseball win for Hunter, great lunch of Crawfish and French bread, and an afternoon spent with my favorite paddling partner. It truly doesn't get much better than this! Gottaluvit!!!!!!!!!

Big Andrew & Oneofthepack called it a
draw, slow day but hard to tell who
caught what, but we both where winners
for the day, just being out on the
water.

SUGGESTIONS:

Conditions where perfect today, guess
we will have to keep “GOT TO GO TO
KNOW” attitude and never give up.

PONDER OF THE DAY:

“If you want to achieve some really big
and interesting catches, you have to
learn to fall in love with fishing”.

Next up will be Big Brain and family,
we scheduled to tackle Delacroix
Wednesday, hope our luck gets a litter
better for this trip, if not we will
just have to make it happen.

Hope to see all you fisherperson out
and about, until then :

Good Fishing

The keeper reds are coming to the boat in droves this whole past week.

I ran 6 trips and we limited out on every trip.

There are a few trout showing up too, and probably in about a week or 2 the trout will get thick.

Enjoy the pics.

Delacroix, LA USA

We had another busy day at Sweetwater
Marina in Delacroix. The fishing
didn’t really turn on until about
1:30-2:00.  Then folks started coming
in with a mix of Speckled Trout and
Reds. Seems like a lot of the Trout
were caught in Four Horse Lake and the
Reds were caught scattered all over.
The weather is looking good for
tomorrow and we have plenty of live
shrimp, and we don’t care where you
launched or who you are.  If we have
bait we’ll sell it to you. Hope to see
you soon at Sweetwater Marina in
Delacroix and remember we are the
second launch.  
Charters and lodging are available for
still available for the upcoming
months and a small deposit will hold
your date. Call the lodge for
reservations, 504-342-2368.  
So come visit us in Delacroix at
Sweetwater Marina where customer
service is number one.
Need help launching your boat? No
problem.
Fish cleaning when available.
Looking forward to seeing you guys
here at the island.

Another great day on the water. Limited on reds
and found a few trout. The trout were a little
picky but I only spent about a 1/2hour trying to
catch them. With some live shrimp I could've
destroyed them, but the marina won't have any
till later this week.

Enjoy the pics, especially of this blue tailed

Left Shell Beach at 7 yesterday.Fished one spot only and caught over 50 specks. Kept my legal limit with one additional red.Only wanted minnows ;would not touch my gulps.

Need advise. Just purchased a new 24 pathfinder. We only fish in waters less than 25 feet deep.I am considering purchasing a side scan sonar. Does anyone have any experience with these? Are they worth it for shallow water fishing?

Venice, LA USA

Its been long over due, but we've finally been able to run some trips with the nice weather we've been having.
As usual for this time of year we have plenty of little Yellows hanging around, but there are also some big boys mixed in, if your willing to put the time in picking through the little guys. There are also schools of big boys chasing open water schools of Ballyhoo, and if your lucky enough to come across one of these its game on with poppers!
With all the little guys in the area it doesn't take long for Marlin to find them. We wound up catching our first Marlin of the year when a little guy decided to use our boat as a hiding place from the big Marlin that was trying ton eat him. While they played hide and seek around our boat we rigged a fresh dead Tuna and pitched it to the really angry Marlin. He swallowed it like a grape, and it was game on!!

Capt. Jack went out today with his

trout and 5 reds. Ten to twelve boats went
out and everyone caught fish. Four boats
went out strictly red fishing and they all
limited out on reds. Some tournament guys
that launched with us said they have been
seeing schools of Red fish all over. We
will have live bait tomorrow for those of

I hope everyone is as ready as I am for this fishing
season to kick off. It is already starting to look like
this year is going to be a great one. The sheepheads,
drums, and bull reds are starting to show. Just as long
as the weather lets us get out there we can put some
in the box. we are looking forward for the shrimp to
come in so we can move on the outside and catch
some
big beautiful trout, you'll just have to burn some fuel
and cover some ground but it will surly be worth the
ride. We are scheduling trips so if you are ready for
some great fishing and making long lasting memories
don't waste any time and call Capt. Jimmy Corley.

All of the fishing trips include poles, bait, fuel, tackle,
ice, and cleaning of that days catch.

Houma, LA USA

Brad, Jeremy, and Jason came down from the north and wanted in on the great bull red fishing. WE were a little unsure of the bite today when leaving the dock because of the cooler temperatures and the low water. When we got to the honey hole the tide was rolling in very hard and I was getting more worried about the bite. Well, as soon as the crab smell got in the water it was game on for about 3 1/2 hours. When the tide slowed the gaff tops started with a vengeance so we made a little move and it was game on again for another hour or more. The largest red this day was a 43' brute. Brad figured that they caught between 40 and 50 bulls. Another point to note is that if you are wanting to eat crabs right now is the time. All the crabs I'm cutting in half are super fat. Come on down and get in on this incredible action. The special will run through April. $450 for 4 people total. Call Capt. Tommy Pellegrin 985-851-3304.#capttommypellegrin - photo Jasons red_zpsjbltt2xj.jpg photo Brads red fish_zpsvtosgkle.jpg photo Triple hook up_zpsoc1slpnf.jpg photo Jeremys 43 red_zpsoennuajn.jpg photo big one_zpsvihyqkw6.jpg

Heading to Delacroix tomorrow where all
the fresh water is to catch some reds
and trout. Doesn't seem to be affecting
them that much there or in Venice where
oh yea the Mississippi river dumps all
the fresh water. That helps promote
growth and feed the estuary before
Katrina I use to catch shrimp in Bayou
Beivenue that came from the west side
of Paris road oh yea where all the
fresh water was. While I do believe
dredging could help build back our
marsh I also believe so does the
siphon's. But I do have to admit I
don't have the specific data proving
this just the fish. I also know that
these siphon's have a detrimental
affect on the oyster crop pushing these
hard working fisher's further out to
make there catch. Just my opinion.

Anything that helps rebuild our marsh
is a good thing and I am for it all.

Good luck to all on your next trip!

Hey everyone, it feels alto like
springtime outside and the fishing is
getting hot as well! April is only a few
days away and the full moon in April is
the best moon of the year for us which
kickstarts the bait migration, the
speckled trout movement towards the
outside and the redfish gorging
themselves on new crabs. As soon as live
shrimp become available we will start
fishing in Black Bay and the sound which
all of my clients love the non stop
trout action when they group up around
the platforms. Last summer was a bit
inconsistent on the trout so Im ready
for some major redemption! Everything in
Delacroix is beginning to come alive and
you want want to miss the outstanding
fishing that April and May give us, so
book your trip with us before its too
late.

We have fantastic lodging, great meal
options, and an extremely fun and
professional fishing trip! We can
customize any trip you and your group
would like and we can handle groups of
up to 40.

Louis

Shell Beach, LA USA

In response to Lance...the MRGO rocks and the dam hold sheepshead this time of year. The dam can get crowded so I recommend you go around the dam and head down the ship channel to the "short rocks".  If conditions are smooth keep running out the channel, past the end of the short rocks, keeping the long rocks on your right hand side (South) and look for bait along the rocks.  You can fish dead shrimp under corks or try the bottom.  You may lose some tackle on the bottom so I recommend fishing about 2-3' under a cork.  Don't be afraid to fish any part of the channel.  It is an underused resource.  It is essentially a lake or bay with 30' of water moving into shallow marshes on the North side.  Really diverse habitat and generally the water is clean.  I suggest you just get out there with a map, try some spots and look for clean water.  I always catch in the channel.  Good luck.  Louie

As to all of this talk about secret spots, I still have a map that BY HEK (the late, great Harold E. Klein) published in the States-Item in 1970 of Delacroix with some of his secret spots. At least a half dozen of them are spots that Pack fishes and has shared.

Oneofthepack returned from Lowes to buy
and ice box.
• Could not sleep, got 1 hour of
sleep, to excited about going fishing
• Picked up Big Andre at his
abode in Lakeshore Estates for 5:30 AM
• Stop at Waffle House for
breakfast, met (2) other fisherperson
going out in their Express, heading to
Hopedale area.

sun came out now and then
• Water temp 64 to 71F
• Water level up
• Tide rising hard all day from
stat of trip to ed of trip
• Water clarity on a scale of 1-7
was w 3 plus, clear, but brown silty
look
• A lot of red fishing type boats
running round must be a tournament
coming up

TECHNIQUE:

• Find spot / areas where wind
behind us when casting, water moving,
water clarity fishable, and holding
some Silverwonders.
• Anchor up cast & retrieve
• Drift cast & retrieve
• Drift w/corks caught 1
• Oak River Troll (ORT) did about
(10)
• Anchor on land at points with
the tide come around the point,
position the boat on the downstream
side of the current, (inside the arch)
fish the current line as it came over
and around the point, nice slow,
letting he current move the lure along
the bottom, (all the way back to the
drop off behind the boat) and giving
the lure a slight twitch every now and
then. Once we located the strike zone
within the arch, concentrate, lure
location in that area / location.


LURE DU JOUR:

• It was a chartrouse glow type
day, me on Matrix Shad, Big Andrew on
H&H glow beetle, matched dup with H&H ¼
oz round white head w/gold  hook.
• Tried purple (1), even tried a
few other lures nothing

AREAS / SPOTS / NUMBERS ON THE MAP
FISHED:

until the next one.

FISHERPERSON FO THE DAY:

He who caught the biggest, most,
variety, and all on the chartrouse glow
beetle, twits be Big Andrew for sure.

SUGGESTIONS:

Oneofthepack advocates early start and
fish into the bites, but as with the
present conditions, suggest a late
start and fish till almost dark, allow
enough time to run in with some day
light. And with late evening fishing in
mind, also suggest a membership with
SeaTow for piece of mind, aka plan “B”
of getting back in, just in case there
is some difficulty of doing same.

PONDER OF THE DAY:

“Missing husband and dog last seen
fishing. Reward for dog”

Might be awhile before we back to
fishing, so save a few for us.

Good Fishing

PLEASE READ!

The BAYOU LAMOQUE Flood Gate on the Mississippi River in the Buras / Empire area remains open on the east side of the River. It has been open since the BP Oil Spill. The river water is flowing into the California Bay & Auguste Bay estuary extending into Whiskey Bay, Black Bay and Cox Bay.

Our fishing has never been the same (poor) since this floodgate has been open. It is destroying the fishing that we all love!

With all of our fisherman's help we can resurrect the great fishing that we remember back into these areas by getting the BAYOU LAMOQUE Floodgate closed.

I am asking everyone to please contact Plaquemines Parish President Amos Cormier, Jr. and ask him to please have the BAYOU LAMOQUE Floodgate closed immediately so we can have our fishery back.

AND IT WILL COME BACK!

First of all, there are no more "secret" spots...too much media and technology. Second, fish swim...they may not be where they were yesterday. It really cracks me up when people lie or won't tell you where they caught fish (except for guides which is understandable). The average fisherman should take pride in being able to direct someone else to an area where fish have been caught....not that you have to give GPS coordinates or anything, but you can say "the west end of Lake Catherine " or something like that. That is actually the real purpose of this website...I think? There are lots of people who give really good informative reports.

I guess it depends whether it's a proprietary secret or not.  I guess if I was a guide and made my living knowing where to put my customers on fish I'd hold that close to the chest.  As an avid amateur fisherman, I look for all the intelligence I can get and am happy to share what little I've learned in return.

Say you go to a friend's house for dinner and he/she serves something awesome.  You say, "Wow, that was great!  Can I have the recipe?"  He/she says "No".  Are you kidding me?  Great things are supposed to be shared so we can all enjoy them.  Your friend is a bonehead.

im looking for a little help.  some
reports have mentioned drum/reds/sheep
have been caught at the long rocks in
the mrgo.   is that a place that is
good for popping corks or fishing on
the bottom?  also i didnt think
sheepshead were at the rocks and were
more at the rigs.   i like catching
sheep but dont have a boat that can
handle the open water of the rigs but i
can fish the rocks.  are there a lot of
sheeps at the rocks?  thanks

The redfish are insane right now. Sight casting
for bull reds was as easy as it comes.
