Please read!!! Fishing Thursday are Friday

Reply
 
I just talk to the mayor of pontartrain and we are going fishing either Thursday are Friday. They will have to give us a ticket because as we seen on the news by the wildlife and fisheries And my work task is to find the oil and I have not seen any in several days. there is no oil out there anymore. There us only one person we have seen day there is oil in the Rigolets and that's the Mayor of Slidell. Come on Kevin Davis. I will take you out on my one time and expense and show you there is no oil.

So who is in for fishing. We need like 100 boats. Let's get our own waters open. There are several trout masters in on this and we are going. Either comment are email me and I'll get you time and location as soon as I get with Capt Dudley on rest of details. If we don't do it it will be another 14 days befor it reopened.

Mayor..
Eric...Kevin isn't our mayor, that would be Freddie...Kevin is Parish President....And, I know for a fact that Freddie can tell the difference between oil and water but he's also not running for Lt. Governor...!!

Lake Pontchatrain
Over 500 test have been performed by FDA. And no sign of oil in the fisheries. Lake Pontchatrain is ready to be fished. The lake is clean and my son and cousins swam all day yesterday. If Wildlife and Fisheries and others can say Louisiana's seafood is safe to eat. I truly believe the fish in Lake Pontchatrain are safe. I also believe they are testing us to Death. If you test tap water long enough, I believe that someone or something can find it to be cancerous. Let's get out and enjoy our FISHING!

Works
Well it's in the works now. I got things mixed up but I got the name right. I have put in 85 hours this week covering from the CSX bridge to cat island. The oil is east of ship island. And the wildlife and fishies said it there selve this area should be reopened. I will speak for the recrational fisherman because they help me as much as I help them and I charter but I fish recrational also on my days off with friends.

Wish I could be there
Would love to be there Eric but can't make it during the week due to work. If you all put together a weekend round-up I will try my hardest to be there. Good luck and don't give up, see if you can get someone to video the event. I bet a lot of people who can't make it would love to see it on video.

I admire your courage.
A little Cajun civil disobedience! Everyone should be prepared to get a ticket. Or at least have any fish in your boat thrown overboard by the agents with a warning.

Let's Ride
Bryce said he will sacrifice his piggy-bank to help pay the ticket. If they don't reopen it soon I'll have to tap into his college fund to pay the tickets but LSU can't teach him what Pontchartrain has!

Let's do it until science not politics tells us we shouldn't!!!!!

Visibility
This should get high visibility and media coverage.

If enough people get involved and raise their collective voice then Baton Rouge will hear.

Lake P is open is it not? It is closed on the northeast corner? Is this the best area to fish? I assume.

Once you are ticketed and refuse to quit fishing, they may arrest you, if I am correct. Who is willing to take it that far?

I will.

how much is the ticket?
Ill be there. Give me a time and place.

Who needs a boater?
Around the Baton Rouge Area?

If I go to jail, I need someone to get my boat/truck back to Baton Rouge.

If we get ticketed, I keep fishing, you will have to stop. I likely get arrested.

Just spoke with Capt. Dudley and at some point today he is going to have a post up with what's going on as he is the spokesman for all of us. And also with a big hand in this is ED Sexton as we all watch what he had to say. They are both talking back and forth with the people we need this to go through. That's where we stand now guys.

Wait!
I've heard some rumors that you may be able to fish legally VERY SOON! You may want to wait a day or two. Unfortunately that is all I can say right now and I am headed out tonight for the national fishing show. Hold your horses.

wait
Tony,thanks for the heads up but looks like people have waited long enough.

They better bring every agent they can to this because they;re going to need them if they want to ticket all of us.
