re: Marsh creation closes 2000 acres of Bayou Sauvage wildlife refuge in NOLA - computerguy
Does anyone know the name of the project or where I can acquire more information on what they are planning to do in this area? I grew up on Irish Bayou so i am very curious how / what they are planning out there. They have been trying (and failing) for years to protect that stretch of land us...

re: speaking of freshwater catfish - computerguy
There are definitely a lot of blues/channels and some big mud cats in and around Lake Pontchartrain. I grew up on Irish Bayou and would target blue cats from late October - February. The colder the better. While you can definitely catch them in the lake the marsh and bayous around the lake will h...

re: Braided line casting length. - computerguy
I have found power pro super slick to offer better casting distance However I have also had issues with hooks getting caught inside the line similar to the way it catches in rope Like many others I throw regular power pro but drop to 10# for distance it is plenty strong for bass...

re: Day of Snook Fishing........Stuart Florida - computerguy
Very nice trip, that is quite an impressive haul. Snook are great eating and as sport they are a top fish. I would put them up with anything you could catch like bass in fresh water or tarpon in the salt. That is a really impressive trip....

re: Life without a boat? - computerguy
I would suggest getting a kayak, paddleboard, pirogue, canoe or even an inflatable type boat (they make very durable/reliable inflatables you might be surprised if you haven't checked them out From my point of view I can surely relate to your situation. I sold my boat and downsized to a flat boa...

Bass Fishing - adding scent to lures - computerguy
Over the years I have never really given scents a chance while bass fishing, anyone find it makes a difference? Does anyone use them and find it will increase the strike chance or will fish hold on longer which would result in better hook sets?...

re: I need a big arse trick worm - computerguy
Out of curiosity how would you fish a worm that big? 6/0 with a weight or is the worm heavy enough to sink directly to the bottom weightless? What action do you use, slow and steady roll of the reel to drag it around or do you lift it and let it fall?...

re: How to catch Bigger Bass - computerguy
1. Live Bait, preferably large shad. 2. Bigger bait can produce bigger fish. Large swim baits, 8"-12" soft plastics, larger rattle traps or big crank baits. Keep in mind big bait may equate to big fish, however it also means few fish if you are throwing something large. I know guys her...

re: New to the northshore - computerguy
Bayou Lacombe will hold some and I would imagine the Tchefuncte would be a good spot. I grew up in Slidell and this time of year was great to fish minnows either under a cork or on a split shot. My favorite spots were Bayou Liberty, Paquet, Cane and some interstate ponds. I would catch a mix ...

re: Fish Light for Specs? - computerguy
A nice compliment to the light is one or two of those old school blue bug zappers. Light attracts the bugs, zappers do some work, bugs in water, little fish come to eat bugs, big fish eats little fish. Good Luck....

re: Petit Jean State Park - computerguy
------- If the trip isn't booked already then look into the Jasper/Buffalo River area. Lots of senic cabins to rent, waterfalls to hike to and fishing on the river. Much more enjoyable trip to me anyway! ------- Agree I liked the Jasper area, great place to visit and anything along the Buffalo ...

re: Buzzbaits for Redfish? - computerguy
The paddle tails you had will certainly work with the buzz bait however I would also suggest considering something in the form of a crab. Redfish are predominately feeding on crabs back in the marsh, at least where I grew up. I would consider trailing your prop with something like this, the prof...

They will definitely take a buzz bait, use a stinger hook, they tend to short strike them or miss them a lot. ...
