Default Louisiana Fishing

Including my time in Colorado (Denver and GJ), I have been fortunate enough to live in 7 states over the last 15 years as I continue with my career. I was blessed to live in Louisiana for a few years and now that I came back to lurk the forum I once so frequented, I figured I should share some of my experiences in case anyone has thought about a trip to the Sportsman Paradise, which I highly recommend.

Too many pictures to share them all (most can be found on my Facebook page which I don't visit anymore), but it has been one of my favorite places to live. The people and the diversity of wildlife were unique and awesome.

Salt water:
Ripping plastics with popping corks for redfish and speckled trout

Jigging cut bait for red snapper at oil rigs (easier than fish in a barrel)

Trolling blades for mahi mahi and tuna (struck out on tuna)

Gigging for flounder in surf flats


Freshwater:
Brim, catfish and sac-a-lait (crappie)

Jugging for alligator gar, which is very fun and tastes great (hand lining something that weighs 25+ lbs!)


Other:
Crawfishing - most underrated food I've ever had!

Crabbing (using a string and chicken neck - awesome!)

Frogging using a cane pole with a small jig. They hit it like a fly when you drop it in from of them


In addition to fishing, I had some great hunting experiences. All in all, southeast Louisiana was great to me and my family. It's a place I would recommend to everyone.
