From Jefferson Parish

Christmas trees will be collected curbside throughout unincorporated Jefferson Parish, Gretna, Harahan, Kenner, Lafitte and will be recycled for beneficial shoreline protection along Goose Bayou in Lafitte.

Residents are advised to place trees curbside on the evening of Wednesday, January 9, 2018.  Garbage trucks will make one pass through each neighborhood to collect trees on the 11th, 12th and 13th of January.

Only green trees can be recycled:  artificial, flocked or painted trees are not eligible for the program.  Prior to placing trees curbside, trees must be free of all lights, tinsel, garland, ornaments, tree stands, and plastic bags.

This year’s project involves placing Christmas trees in constructed shoreline fences in Goose Bayou near Lafitte to help protect and restore Jefferson’s wetlands.

VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED:  especially those with shallow draft boats to move trees from a Lafitte staging area to the pre-constructed shoreline fences in Goose Bayou.

  • WHEN:                 8:00am, Saturday, Februrary 9, 2018
  • WHERE:               Cochiara’s marina, 4477 Jean Lafitte Boulevard, Lafitte

Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, wear layered clothing, including long pants, long sleeved shirt and closed toe sturdy shoes.  Hats and sunscreen are recommended.  Gloves, safety glasses, life vests, lunch and refreshment will be provided.

For more information or to volunteer, contact the Department of Environmental Affairs at 504-731-4612 or email

When this project first started, I thought they were going to completely fill it. It appears that they made a series of small canals within the pond. Maybe it will turn out to be a good thing in a few years, assuming it won't be too shallow.

Boat Registration Increase To Begin In 2019

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Licensing Section advises all Louisiana boat owners that beginning January 1, 2019, motorboat registration will increase by $9 for each boating length category.  Motorboat registration is valid for a three-year period. Below is a table showing the fee increases by boat length

The additional fees are a result of Act 698 of the 2018 Regular Legislative Session and will be dedicated to LDWF’s Aquatic Plant Control Fund and will be used to fight aquatic plants and invasive aquatic species across the state.

For additional information, please contact LDWF’s Licensing Section at 225-765-2898 or visit our website at .

Fishing Equipment / trade reel for rod

Item Description
Baton Rouge La
I have some Penn reels I would like to trade for a 12 ft casting rod  I have a 6/0,4/0/309,209,and 500,also interested in spinning rod 12to15 ft
Spooky specks at Shell Beach. Yesterday I had Jim Walther and his two guests Clint and Clint on the Blazer Bay. The wind was howling when I picked them up at Jim’s camp and the tide was still rising though it should have been falling. We found some birds working in a pass between two lagoons and the guys went to work. The bite was not crazy fast, but was steady. When the tide finally turned around our bite faded, but not before the guys limited out on trout and added a few reds to the box before calling it a day.

All fish in the Suzuki powered Blazer Bay 2400 were caught with Campo’s live shrimp on Capt. Rory's United Charters custom rods provided by CUI Products with Penn reels, spooled with Power Pro line. All fish removed and boxed with the one and only Just Grab it Glove.

The trout are moving into the marsh and that great fall fishing is here. This is some of the best inshore fishing of the year. Get your fall trips booked early before all the weekend and holiday dates fill up. Call now to book your trip of a lifetime. Overnight accommodations on the bayou are available.

I never understood how any popular marina would let themselves get in a situation like that. Once and a while things happen, but if it’s happening all the time, that’s not good business practice.
