Herald-Guide Outdoor Report with Bruce McDonald
Fall hunting around the corner
Right now the days and nights are in equal time. Gradually the days will become shorter and nights longer, until the winter Solstice, but until then we can officially agree that fall is here.
My son Hunter and most other fishermen can't wait for this time of year.
Cooler temperatures bring a change to the woods and water.
Duck hunters start building and brushing blinds. Deer hunters build stands and plant food plots. Bow hunters sharpen their skills. Fishermen re-visit favorite fishing spots.Redfish take the bait in Salvador
If you like red fish, Lake Salvador has been invaded.
The eastern shoreline has given up limit catches this past week.
The gold wobble right, th e Baby Minus in pearl and chartreuse, and shrimp on a jig head worked well.
Fish along the shoreline from Bay Badeaux to the mouth of Bayou Villares - also known as the Christmas tree line.
Keep fishing and moving along this stretch of shoreline and sooner or later you will find them.
Moving 100 to 200 yards will put on fish sometimes. Pier 90, Bayou Segnette and the launch at Rosethorn Park in Lafitte are a great way to get back into the water.Hurricanes slow teal hunters With the recent visits from Gustav and Ike, teal hunters have killed few birds.
If hunters were able to get deep into the Salvador Management Area, they might have had a chance.High water keeps away catches
Recently I went to Bayou Des Allemands. The water is still high. The water has to drop another foot before the Bayou starts producing good catches of sac-a-lait and bass. All the launches are still sandbagged and inaccessible.Buck and squirrel hunting opens
In two weeks Louisiana hunting seasons will open. Bow hunting for bucks only will open Oct. 1, and squirrel and rabbit on Oct. 4. The smell of smothered rabbit and a pot of white beans make this hunter ready to go.
