Unfortunately, down venice way the usual fall pick a cut in
the river scenario for trout and reds has been tough due to
a rise back in the first of the month...however with the
recent lapse in precip things have started to turn around
and trout are showing up in the interiors of the marsh. ...
tons of bull reds still reside on the outside along the
beaches and bays...and yes a second dose of topwater
action has been off the charts with the massive schools...!
!
If fresh water is your game the turnover of lakes is nearing
so the bass and crappie are taking to feasting and the bite
has been very productive! Crank baits and live 3d image
baits have worked well ...!
!
Duck season for the second year without hurricanes
messing up the natural food sources looks promising on
the food side...if we get a few freezes early up north the
first split should be a good one....acorns are dropping and
Ive seen a good bit of wood ducks in the local creeks
already. If the trees can hold on to the acorns for about 45
more days a lot of hunters will be wearing smiles come
December! Its about to bust open so make tim

Red snapper anglers' season cut from 11 to 9 days http://www.wbrz.com/news/red-snapper-anglers-season-cut-from-11-to-9-days-60549/ http://www.wbrz.com/news/red-snapper-anglers-season-cut-from-11-to-9-days-60549/ Outdoors Thu, 15 May 2014 9:10:56 PM Red snapper anglers' season cut from 11 to 9 days

NEW ORLEANS - Federal fisheries officials have cut this year's recreational red snapper season in the Gulf of Mexico from 11 days to nine days, starting June 1.

NOAA Fisheries spokeswoman Kim Amendola says the change was needed because Louisiana opened state waters year-round after the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council cut the snapper quota in April.

The management council acted after a U.S. District Court judge in Washington, D.C., ruled that federal regulators had been mismanaging the recreational catch for years.

The change won't affect commercial catches. Commercial boats have stayed within their quota, while recreational anglers have gone over quota for years.

Charter captains and Louisiana regulators say the council and NOAA Fisheries use bad data.

The agency is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Gray triggerfish season closes; red grouper limits http://www.wbrz.com/news/gray-triggerfish-season-closes-red-grouper-limits/ http://www.wbrz.com/news/gray-triggerfish-season-closes-red-grouper-limits/ Outdoors Wed, 30 Apr 2014 6:37:28 PM APNewsNow Gray triggerfish season closes; red grouper limits

BATON ROUGE - The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says recreational fishing for gray triggerfish will close in Louisiana waters at 12:01 a.m. Thursday and will remain closed until Jan. 1. The state is matching a closure in federal waters.

NOAA Fisheries biologists said Wednesday the annual recreational catch target of 217,000 pounds will soon be met, and the closure is needed to stay within that limit.

NOAA Fisheries said Monday that it will reduce the recreational bag limit for red grouper in federal waters from four to three fish, starting Monday. It will close the 2014 red grouper recreational harvest at 12:01 a.m. on Sept. 16.

The agency says the changes are to compensate for last year's catch, which went 492,000 pounds over the annual limit of 1.9 million pounds.
