Girls beat the boys in Shell Beach. Saturday I ran a two boat trip with Capt. Gabe. We had a group of 10 and the boys hopped on my boat and the girls with Capt. Gabe. It started off pretty calm but the winds were going to be picking up so opted to stay in the marsh and it was a good thing we did as the winds picked up as the morning went on. Fishing with Campo’s shrimp under 4 Horsemen corks my guys filled up the box with reds, a few bass, 3 flounder, and 1 lone trout. As good as they did the girls did better. They had some bigger fish and limited out before us, but everyone had a blast, except fo the fish. Not good a day for them.

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 Kast King line. All fish removed and boxed with the one and only Just Grab it Glove.

Spring is here and the fishing is heating up. Trout are starting to wake up from their winter slumber and the Bull Red and Sheepshead action at the rigs is flat out crazy. Book your spring and summer dates now while choice dates are still available. Call now to book your trip of a lifetime. Overnight accommodations on the bayou are available.

Shell Beach meat haul. Yesterday I help Capt. Ed with a two boat trip for a group from Texas. With calm conditions we made the run out into the Sound. We hopped around a few wellheads and got on some good bites of big reds and lots of sheepshead. The guys crammed both boats ice chests to the top and had a blast doing so.  Everyone limited out on big reds with a few smaller keepers and all the heads you could ever want. Another great day at the Beach.

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 www.wlf.la.gov .

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is charged with managing and protecting Louisiana’s abundant natural resources. For more information, visit us at www.wlf.la.gov. To receive email alerts, signup at http://www.wlf.la.gov/signup
