    Big Lake- Lake Charles Louisiana*** With Pics

    Traveled to Lake Charles this weekend for McNeese homecoming,, golf, gambling and football. On Saturday afternoon, my buddy asked if I wanted to go fish for a while,, so we headed down to Big Lake and fished from 1:30 to 4:30 in the afternoon. We caught 70 Specks, kept 32 by 3:15. Then we headed into the marsh and caught 10 lbs of nice 20 count shrimp in a throw net. Then we caught 8 reds over 21" and quit by 4:30 to make it back and to the game at 7. I love Louisiana!

    Re: Big Lake- Lake Charles Louisiana

    awesome! u have any pics?? I grew up fishing the reserve, hog island gully, big lake, and the LNG plant-thanks to my Dad who took me all those places. We have family in Lake Charles and Sulphur. Best memory was us catching and releasing 52 reds one morning when I was 9yrs old. used to go crabbing at the whirpool and ellender bridge. Was really great being a kid with family nice enough to take us to do that kind of stuff down there

    I grew up in Lake Charles and though we had 19 boats at one time, we caught more Specks, Flounder and Shrimp at Hog Island Gully than we did in a boat. I was telling stories of Hog Island Gully this weekend, and I doubt anyone believed what I was saying, but it was all true!
    Not a good pic,, cell phone and my buddy had already cleaned some big ones.

    Cool pic. Those are some nice fish. Yeah, I have pulled up to hog island gulley to see people with rods doubled over and the banks lined with people catching reds. We used (like 20 years ago) to head out to the salt water from there but I think they have a lock there now. I am headed to Sulphur for Thanksgiving. might just drag the boat with me!

    My buddy just sent me this. We stopped about every 10 minutes and put them in the ice chest.
