  • Fishing for Redfish in Louisiana 0 CommentsPosted by Ariel Helwani on June 21, 2017 under Fishing

    Redfishing in Louisiana

    Fishing for redfish, or red drum, in Louisiana has been a favorite pastime for many anglers over the years.  Although Louisiana is known as one of the best destinations for fishing charters,  which includes deep sea fishing for yellowfin tuna and other game fish, many fishermen in Louisiana like to fish inland for the smaller fish.  There are tons of options for Louisiana fishing, but Redfish is a local favorite.

    Redfish – what can you keep?

    Each fisherman is allowed to keep up to five redfish per day. The minimum size limit for redfish is 16 inches, and the maximum is 27 inches. However, one of your five can be over the 27 inch mark—these are called Bull Reds.

    Louisiana Girl Catching Redfish

    So what do you need to catch a redfish? 

    Here are 14 helpful tips for catching redfish in Louisiana:


    1. Use the local birds to your advantage. Wading birds, like egrets and herons, can help you spot shallow water from a distance.
    2. Use either a high pound test fishing line, or braided line. Redfish are known for fighting back, and you don’t want to hook a big one, only to have the line snap before you get him in the boat.
    3. Also make sure you’re using strong hooks. Redfish have very hard mouths, and many hooks will bend easily.
    4. In shallow water along the edge of marsh grass, use a topwater lure. Redfish often troll around searching for baitfish, like mullet, in the shallows waters. If he’s big enough, you might even see his tail or fins poking out the top of the water.
    5. Use a spinnerbait in the grassy, brackish waters. The flashing and vibrations from the spinnerbait are likely to attract fish.
    6. Try your best to find clean water. In Louisiana, it’s probably never going to be clear—but it can be less muddy and dirty in certain places.
    7. In the small bayous, inlets, and ponds, use plastic jerk baits, like cacahoe minnows. These are typically very realistic looking and can easily fool a redfish.
    8. Keep a constant lookout for signs of feeding fish or nervous bait. Redfish cruise grassy shorelines to ambush bait or dig crustaceans off the bottom.
    9. Bait fish are often found in the current. And where bait fish go, redfish go.
    10. Redfish love live bait…usually. There is no one bait that will work every single time you go fishing. However, redfish very often will bite for shrimp, minnows, and small crabs.
    11. In deeper waters with little grass, topwater lures are best. If you don’t hook your fish on the first try, keep the bait in the same area. A redfish is likely to strike again.
    12. Sometimes you just have to let the Redfish wear itself out. Like mentioned, redfish are fighters and they will make a run. Make sure you’ve got the proper drag settings on your rod, and are ready for a fight. But sometimes so as to not break the line, it might be best to let them run before trying to reel them back in.
    13. Redfish can be fished year-round in the marshes of Louisiana.
    14. Once you find a spot, give it a good 15 to 20 minutes. After that, if you’ve had no bites, it’s best to move on. Even if conditions seem perfect, there aren’t always fish there.

  • Fishing For Yellowfin Tuna 0 CommentsPosted by WildTurkey on April 17, 2017 under Fishing

    Of all the fishing in the world, one of the best fights you will encounter is that of reeling in a Yellowfin Tuna. The Gulf Coast offers some of the best deep sea fishing anywhere in the world with Venice, La being the crown jewel of Louisiana fishing. One of the true treasures of the area is the year round tuna fishing. These tasty beasts can be caught day or night any month of the year just off the continental shelf around the deep water rigs. By deep water we are talking around 1000ft to about 1500ft deep. Many of the veteran fishing guides recommend getting in decent range of a floating drilling platform, or “floater” as is the lingo. There are hundreds of oil and gas platforms in the Gulf of Mexico, many of them reachable by boat for some superb fishing.

    How to Fish For Yellowfin Tuna

    There are several ways to fish for Yellowfin Tuna, some of them unintentional. Many times when fishing for other species of saltwater fish, such as Marlin and Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna will hit the bait. So there is a chance you may take home a Yellowfin Tuna even though you were fishing for Wahoo. But, to really experience Yellowfin at its best, the thing to do is an overnight trip to that deep water spot. Night fishing offers a more direct approach to the Yellowfin Tuna.

    Catching Yellowfin Tuna


    Time To Fish

    The dark hours bring the fish up from the deep water to feed on the smaller fish at the surface. The smaller fish are attracted by the lights on the floating rigs. This is the time to catch loads of Yellowfin Tuna. Using bait caught earlier that day for a combination of chum and trolling bait, it is time to set up the lines. Many people prefer to drift with the current until a fish bites. This is done by positioning the vessel to float past the rigs while dragging a baited line many yards behind the boat. For the added attraction chum is tossed into the water slowly to draw in more fish. Once you get a bite, prepare for the fight of a lifetime. Landing a large Yellowfin Tuna can take anywhere from 30 minutes to many hours. The Yellowfin Tuna caught in the Gulf of Mexico average around 40lbs to 60lbs. Although 150lb giants have been landed in the past, so be prepared.  Record sized tuna are out there and ready to be caught on your next Louisiana charter fishing trip.

    With an average of 40lbs to 60lbs and a local limit of 3 Yellowfin per person per day, a successful trip means there is a lot of tuna to go around. Not including all the other things you may catch like Flounder, Grouper, Snapper, and many more.

    High School Fishing Teams

    Take a Kid Fishing, The New Team SportTeen Fishing

    We have all experienced the Team Sports of the past, including, but not limited to Baseball, Football, Soccer, Softball, Tennis and Golf.  We, as parents, recognized early on that keeping our kids busy and involved in team sports gave our kids confidence, and skills needed to work in a “team” environment.  These are skills we knew our kids would take into college and the working world.

    If you do not own your own boat “yet”, another great way to see if your child and his, or her friends are interested, is to take them on a charter fishing.  Let them work with a guide, learn the aspects of respecting the waters, the catch and in addition, the time away from the day to day tether to their smartphones.  Charter Boat Captains can teach your teen the tricks, the popular baits and likely locations to land that fish!fish logo

    Hahnville High School B.A.S.S. Nation Team

    Most recently High School Fishing Teams have been making headlines.  Young and old, all can enjoy the sport of fishing. One of the fastest growing youth related movements across the country are high school fishing clubs, according to the Bass Federation. The Bass Federation, the nation’s oldest and organized fishing organizations, has initiated the development of the Student Angler Federation.

    One of the most noteworthy high school teams here in Louisiana, made headlines when their B.A.S.S. Nation Team was formed at Hahnville High School.   The first year (2014-2015) they did not have a team to qualify for the state tournament, but by it’s second year, they had SEVEN teams to qualify, hosted at Dorion’s Landing in Morgan City, Louisiana. The team of Andrew Melancon and Andrew Granier finished sixth, the highest placement for the Hahnville contingent.

    It has become so popular among high school youth, there is even a Facebook Page dedicated just to the Louisiana High School Bass Fishing Teams.  There is a big push now for Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) to recognize the B.A.S.S. High School Fishing Sport, and the Student Angler Federation is helping to push this through as a recognized High School Sport.teen team

    Tempers flare over tenor: Andrea Bocelli reportedly bails on Trump inauguration over backlash

    Andrea Bocelli has reportedly pulled out of performing at Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony after the hashtag #BoycottBocelli spread on social media.

    Read: Punching Out: Sylvester Stallone Says He Will Not Take On Arts Role During Trump’s Reign

    A source told the New York Post that the Italian singer was “getting too much heat” and said “no” to performing.

    But inaugural committee chairman Tom Barrack told CNBC it was actually Trump who turned down the singer’s offer to perform.

    “Donald said, ‘you don’t need to. We’re not in that kind of a framework. Thanks very much for the offer. You’re my friend. You are always welcome at the White House’,” Barrack said.

    Jackie Evancho, who will sing the national anthem, is the only announced performer so far at Trump’s inauguration, which has been having trouble attracting A-list talent.

    The news comes as Trump’s grown sons Donald Jr. and Eric are reportedly hosting a fundraiser for wealthy donors on inauguration weekend called “Camouflage and Cufflinks”.

    The invitation, obtained by TMZ, says $1 million buys you the “Bald Eagle” package, which consists of “a private reception and photo opportunity with President Donald J. Trump” as well as a “multi-day hunting and/or fishing excursion for four guests with Donald Trump, Jr. and/or Eric Trump.”

    The brothers are avid big game hunters and the invitation says all proceeds “will be donated to conservation charities.”

    As preparations are underway for the inauguration, artists at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum are at work crafting a Donald Trump figure to be completed by his swearing in on January 20.

    The biggest challenge they are facing is crafting the real estate mogul’s signature hairdo, inserting each strand one at a time.

  • Mysterious ‘angel shark’ wields power of invisibility 0 CommentsPosted by Ryan Wilson on December 20, 2016 under NBA

    Mysterious 'angel shark' wields power of invisibility

    When hunting prey, the superpower of invisibility no doubt comes in handy.

    One species that has been successful in the mastery of self-concealment is the angel shark, notes the BBC.

    The bottom-dwellers evade detection by settling their flat, sand-colored bodies into the similarly colored ocean floor.

    There, they wait until an unsuspecting creature happens by, then quickly approach and strike.

    Once pinned by the sharks’ needle-like teeth, there is little chance the target will escape.

    While the art of camouflage has served the angel shark community well as far as securing meals is concerned, it has done little to protect it from the fishing industry.

    Over the past decades their numbers have been significantly depleted, making them among the sea’s most at-risk species.

  • Increased sightings of two-headed sharks baffle scientists 0 CommentsPosted by NHL FanHouse on November 6, 2016 under Soccer

    Increased sightings of two-headed sharks baffle scientists

    Two-headed sharks may seem like science fiction, but National Geographic is pointing out that they seem to be becoming more common around the world.

    As the report notes, past discoveries include two-headed pre-term sharks found off the Florida coast and in the Indian Ocean as well as two sets of conjoined twins found around Mexico.

    Scientists in Spain have also announced that one of their lab shark embryos was growing two heads which is one of the first known instances of the phenomenon appearing in an egg-laying member of the species.

    SEE EARLIER: Scientists stunned to find bizarre two-headed shark

    As the team states in the resulting study, “Each head had a mouth, two eyes, a brain, a notochord [like a spinal cord], and five gill openings on each side.”

    They also identified separate hearts, stomachs, and livers but one set of shared intestines, kidneys, and reproductive system.

    While researchers don’t exactly know why these mutations are happening, occurrences in the wild have been attributed to infections, pollution, and overfishing causing the gene pool to shrink.

    A recent BBC report also describes past accounts of two-headed dolphins, snakes, and turtles.

  • Press Release: Full Details Regarding Eric Young’s 10-Part Animal Planet Series “No Limit” 0 CommentsPosted by admin on April 29, 2014 under Wrestling

    The following press release has been issued:

    Eric Young?Tests The Limits Of Outdoor Adventure In The New ANIMAL PLANET Series “NO LIMITS”

    From Mexico to Alaska and Everywhere In Between, Professional Wrestler “Showtime” Eric Young Is Back and Braver Than Ever – – New 10-Part Series NO LIMITS Premieres on Friday, May 30, at 8 PM (ET/PT)

    (New York, New York, April 28, 2014) – IMPACT Wrestling superstar, self-avowed adrenaline junkie, and recently crowned?TNA?World Heavyweight Champion, “Showtime” Eric Young has spent the last two summers crisscrossing the country in search of the oddest and craziest fishing techniques for his Animal Planet series, OFF THE HOOK: EXTREME CATCHES. From fishing in the frigid Bering Sea with a hardened crew of commercial fishermen to free diving 50 feet beneath the surface in the tropical waters of Hawaii to catch an octopus, Young has embraced some of the most insane fishing practices and trained with the masterminds who pioneered them. Now, Young's never-ending thirst for adventure continues on land in the new 10-part series NO LIMITS, where he tries his hand at some of the most extreme physical activities throughout and beyond the continental U.S., dreamt up by some of the most passionate outdoorsmen on the planet. From the intrepid to the insane to the just plain dumb and the all-out dangerous, Eric tests his limitations like never before!

    Premiering Friday, May 30, at 8 PM (ET/PT), NO LIMITS follows Young as he showcases adrenaline-fueled adventures that take him to the edge of his comfort zone. This season, Young travels to New York, Hawaii, Nevada, New Mexico, Puerto Rico, Maine and many other locations to experience hidden thrills and to discover the wild subcultures and lifestyles of those driven to live the extremes that the outdoors has to offer. Whether he's searching for invasive pythons in South Florida, river boarding through Class IV rapids on the Ocoee River in Tennessee, or climbing an Alaskan iceberg from a paddleboard, Young (and his iconic manly beard) won't stop until he puts his signature move on the competition.

    New adventures this season include the following:

    - The inhospitable terrain surrounding Death Valley boasts record high temperatures and is covered in thousands of abandoned mines. Eric joins a group of thrill seekers to take a dark and dangerous trip 600 feet underground in a mine that is more than a century old.

    - Eric trains to be a lumberjack in the heart of Tennessee's Smoky Mountains with some of the toughest woodsmen he's ever met. And when his intense training is complete, he'll compete against the pros.

    - In Arizona, Eric learns a new desert sport – sand boarding – which combines insane speeds with a hot sandy surface, which can cause serious skin burns if you wipe out! Will Eric survive the gnarly dunes without running into scorpions?

    - Eric travels to Mexico to catch one of the hardest fighting fish in the ocean – the striped marlin. While most anglers battle these huge fish from an actual boat, Eric takes on the difficult task from a small kayak.

    - By trekking 40 rugged miles on a snow machine, Eric travels to the Great White North to battle the invasive northern pike and joins three expert fishermen on an excursion into the backcountry.

    NO LIMITS is produced by Lucky 8 for Animal Planet. Gregory Henry, Kim Woodard and Dan Bree are the executive producers for Lucky 8. For Animal Planet, Erin Wanner is the executive producer, Jamie Dugger is the producer, and Hilary Tholen is the associate producer.
