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.
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
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!)
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.
