Default Bl rant

Talked to warden yesterday doing fish count survey we had 12 trout and few reds.. Had a discussion about why the lake sucked so bad and Sabine is doing good.. Identical lake system only difference was weirs, washout area and oyster rapers...warden claims that the washout 9 mile area bn washed out is letting lot of sediment in lake covering reefs etc that use to be filtered.... Also admits that the use of dredging is killing the reefs when u tong only it is actually beneficial to the reef helps reseed it... On the east side of state where they oyster w permits they have to reseed after they dredge it... Third the weirs and warden agreed w me on that topic less bait flow but u ain't winning that battle.. So I'm asking cca to stand up and fight for tonging only and rock off the areas of the channel washing out and just leave small openings....there is 4 times the amount of bait at Sabine then there is bl right now... This lake is goin downhill and it needs to be done.. Yes we still have days we smoke em but patterns are way less consistent than In the past...so call cca and ask them to help out maybe they'll do something other than build a reef in the middle of nowhere that u can only fish a a handful of times a yr

any specific contacts that you and Waltrip have discussed this with? Just to make it easier for us to get ahold of someone who you have dealt with this on.

Letting them dredge for oysters worst mistake in Big Lake History

Freaken raped everything

Even when they moved the line up a few years ago by Basket Reef.. They destroyed it and it has not been the same since

#2 which is a losing battle is weirs, money money money is all that it is.. save my duck weed so we can kill ducks... screw estuary life ( New Sticker)

#3 we need a rock levee from area formally know as Super Cut to rock Island then on off both sides of steam engine island to stop erosion




The ship channel brings on millions a day yet we can't save land loss

We have bad years also on Sabine, due to fresh water off neches and Sabine rivers. The washout would suck and over oystering damaging reefs also. The West side of Sabine is nothing but a rock wall protecting pleaser island from erosion and the ship channel side of pleaser island is being rocked also for erosion. The rocks are some of the best fishing on Sabine certain times of year. Rock walls on the washout and steam engine would be nice for erosion and fishing!!!! Do y'all fish the rocks in ship channel on BL? They love jerk baits on Sabine this time off year.

I don't fish the lakes in you guys areas but I cant see how dredging for oysters couldnt be a good thing. That would be like using a bulldozer to dig out the one crawfish that builds a mound in your yard. Just my opinion though.

The oyster reefs are the top priority, with erosion control second. Rock lines to reduce erosion also serve as artificial reefs.

Sabine is better because it is not over fished and the size limits and bag are more conservative. Seen many years when I fished Sabine and didn't even limit while all my buddies in Big lake were limiting in about an hour. But I do agree the weirs are the biggest problem for the decline in the last 2 years. There are so many cuts on the Louisiana shoreline of Sabine and there are no weirs limiting the bait coming out of that marsh.

Size and limits are the same on la side pressure is not the problem on bl rt now I might see 5 to 8 boats a day hell I've seen more on Sabine lately than bl... And the reason ur buddies are limiting on bl when u aren't is common.. Me and a couple other guides fish both lakes and when bl blows Sabine is good when bl is on fire Sabine usually blows have no clue why but this has been pattern for the 5 yrs since I've started guiding on both lakes...

Big Lake is now where near over fished, and we can support a 25 man limit but have a 15

Open dredging was almost the ruination of Lake Pontchartrain. Thus, the "Save Our Lake" Foundation.
