A few weeks back I saw that the 3rd annual “Best of Louisiana Outdoors” was accepting nominations for this year’s categories.  I’m not sure that I even knew about the first two years of this deal, but somehow it came across my social media feed this year.  I got registered on the site and started giving nominations where I saw fit and I got to the “Best Redfish Angler (Non-Professional)” and thought, “Eh, what the hell, I’ll throw my hat in the ring.  Surely they won’t let some jackass that nominates himself into the finals” – well wouldn’t you know it, they totally did, though I suspect that in order for me to make the finals someone else must have also nominated me and to that person, or persons I guess, I am quite honored.

Thus begins my global campaign.  Under the Lagniappe category you can now cast your vote for yours truly as the “best” redfish angler in the state of Louisiana.  You’ve got to register before you can begin voting and I have no idea whether or not they will spam the hell out of those who register, but it would amuse me to no end to see my name there, so get out there and rock the vote.

It’s been a few months since I last caught a redfish, but don’t let the time off fool you, I can still catch them better than anyone else in this state, so allow me to stroll down memory lane to provide some evidence as to why I’m deserving of your vote:



















It’s that time of year again, time for kayak fishers (and their families, friends, co-workers, and anyone else with a separate IP address) to go submit their votes on Yak Angler‘s annual choice awards – click the link above to learn more and submit your votes.  Categories this year include:

  • Kayak Angler” of the year
  • Kayak” of the year
  • Kayak Paddle” of the year
  • Kayak Angler Forum” of the year
  • Kayak Angling Journal/Magazine” of the year
  • Most Innovative Kayak Angling/Fishing Product (non kayak)” of the year
  • Kayak Angling Retailer/Outfitter/Bait Shop” of the year
  • Kayak Angling Location” of the year
  • Kayak Angling Online Video” of the year
  • Kayak Angling Photo” of the year
  • Kayak Angling Blog/Blogger” of the year

If you see fitting you could vote for this blog in that last category as it has been nominated again.  I have about as good of a chance at winning as Bobby Jindal does for President, but it’s still nice to be recognized (I assure you I didn’t nominate myself – in fact I forgot to submit any nominations).


Round 1 voting will conclude Sunday September 27th, so be sure to submit your votes this week and check back again next week to vote for Round 2.
