No restrictions against fishing during hunting season, just be courteous during the early morning hours in the marsh.
Most duck hunters call it a day around mid morning. Ill usually wait till then before I go and start chasing reds in the ponds....

3000 size, all day, every day.
It's the same size as the 2500, same price and the spool can hold more line...
OP: shimano Sahara or symetre with a Cabelas tourney trail rod (if it breaks, just bring it to Cabelas for a replacement)...

Quick report :
It was cold.
But is was still a great day for fishing- just not [i]tournament[/i] fishing!
Ended up catching well over 20-30 reds, half a dozen which were bulls ranging from 28-37". If they weren't bulls, they were 16-20" reds that don't help you much in a tournament. Wat...

Yep; I'll be in the house. Original plan was to make it down tonight and stay till sunday, but couldn't get off in time so I will be headed down in the very early hours tomorrow morning.
I know y'all aren't fishing FnT, but you can still hang out at the marina for the weigh in and meet a lot of g...

Good deal. Post what ya find, if you can.
Was hoping to be down fishing today as well, but instead had to come to work!...

Minimalist this year sucked. . . last year wasn't bad.
As long as you prepare for a cold tournament and layer, it's not too bad. Wind should die down a bit for Saturday and warm up a bit too.
Still a bit crazy to be breaking out the cold weather gear this early though!...
| Outdoor Board|| re: Anyone fishing this weekend? - nahtanojc on 11/14/14 at 12:52 am|
If that's your s/n on BCKFC, I'll see you around- I think we are staying at the same place Saturday night :cheers:...
| Outdoor Board|| re: Anyone fishing this weekend? - nahtanojc on 11/14/14 at 12:51 am|
I know, right?
I'll be in a bright yellow kayak with a bright orange vest on just in case.
But to be fair. . . I'm pretty sure the tournament was scheduled before they knew what the opening day of duck season was. I know last years tournament was on the 16th I think and duck season did not ...

to be clear, y'all are talking about someone who went around taking the towels [b][i]before[/i][/b] the game?
After the game, while waiting for crowds to clear out, my son went around our section picking up the towels that people had left behind. . . ended up with almost 30 of them. This was [b]...

Yea, YCB is one of the spots I'm thinking of fishing since there's some good deep holes there and around the area.
But if water temps only dip a few degrees and are still in the mid 60's, I'm not sure the fish will be stacked like they usually do in January and February.
May end up fishing f...

Damn "Enter" key. . ....
| Outdoor Board|| Anyone fishing this weekend? - nahtanojc on 11/12/14 at 9:05 am|
Think the trout will be headed to the deep holes with this front? Water temps across the state are still in the 70's. . . not sure how much it will plunge with this next one.
Trying to strategize for the kayak tournament this weekend in Venice! :cheers:...

I was talking about old HWY1, not the stretch of HWY1 between Fourchon and Grand Isle.
This may help:
The area NW of Fourchon is posted as wildlife sanctuary. No one is sure of the exact boundaries of the s...
| Outdoor Board|| re: The Official Kayak Thread - nahtanojc on 11/4/14 at 3:08 pm|
Oh, and be careful fishing some of the areas off old HWY1 (closer to Fourchon)
There is a wildlife sanctuary there that is posted. . . great fishing in there, but it is patrolled by the Port Commission and if they catch you back there it will end up costing you some Benjamin's :spank:...

Grats on the catch; we were in the same area last weekend and destroyed them! (old hwy 1, short paddle and about 50 reds total caught between my son and I)
Speaking of Reds, what are those fish at the bottom of the pile in between the trout? They look like reds. . . really, really small reds. . ...

| Outdoor Board|| re: Switched over to the left side. . . - nahtanojc on 10/29/14 at 7:14 pm|
I predominately use spinning reels, reeling with my left hand and holding the rod with my right.
I wanted to see if doing the same with a baitcaster would feel more natural...
| Outdoor Board|| Switched over to the left side. . . - nahtanojc on 10/29/14 at 7:04 pm|
Had won a custom DUCE rod earlier this month which gave me a reason to splurge on a new baitcaster. :lol:
Had been looking at the new 13 Fishing Concept E reels and was also considering importing a Shimano Exsence DC from Japan, but wanted to try a left hand reel this time. Ended up going with...

I appreciate all the advice; I'm going to get us both signed up for the safety ed class and then reach out to a couple friends that duck hunt- at least to get a feel for it and let my son see if he's still interested.
What type gun should I be looking at for a scrawny 12 year old? 12 gauge shotg...

Actually, now that I think of it... My grandmother owned quite a # of acres down in St. Mary's Parish- pretty much all marsh...but nothing fishable, unfortunately. It was split between all the kids, but I think they all still own their portions.
Down by Burn's Point; may be good for ducks?...
