3 of us went out to lake martin today , a buddy said he did real good there during the week , we went in at 10am there were alot of boats there many coming out as we were going in all saying no bites , we stayed till 3 had a couple bites but that was it way to many tour boats around there for my liking , tried both bass and sac a lait no fish at all , water was around 3 - 4 foot deep water temp was 59 , when we left there were still boats pouring in and out

Tried this place out for around 5 hours , man coming out said he had little luck with around 4 sac a lait nice size , there is alot of grass and you have to punch thru the mats to catch anything as my friend did the day before , bass and sac a lait for us was a no go water was around 10 ft deep 57 degree's , very grassy and the ramp is very muddy with a couple logs right as you launch your boat

Anyone had any luck fishin courtableau , its close to the house but anytime we have went you dont catch many fish , i was thinking of putting some lines out , just not to sure it has never been a very productive water for us.

I was wondering if anyone had any information on jp oil lines and fishing , i used to go there about 10 years ago with a friend fishing , they had a place to put a boat in that looked crystal clear very nice area , but we had permission to go there back then , friends moved away so i dont know if they still let people fish there.

Went to henderson today with my daughter we put in between the 2 bridges , it was very busy , the hydrilla was very bad , we would go down a cut 10 mins later you were blocked in , we tried our hand at bass , catfish , and crappie fishing with no luck we talked with a few people out there had the same luck as us , we might try indian river tomarro.

A comment titled: lol in response to a report titled: Trailer inspections

it was brought up so many times i went down a few months back and just got a inspection

A comment titled: Funny this was brought up again in response to a report titled: Trailer inspections

Yesterday this was posted as a news story on Klfy

It's surprising, but some motorists don't seem to know that the trailer they're using for towing may be in violation of motor vehicle laws. Officials say many people don't get the $10 annual inspection.

Harold Western of Lafayette owns a landscaping business. Western uses utility trailers to tow his lawn equipment. Western is like many trailer owners. He's heard about the inspection and that's about it. 'I've heard people mention it, but unfortunately no I haven't had time to go and get everything inspected. I don't know what the requirements are, cost or fee; not really happy about it. You do what you have to do,' says Western.

David Simon of Fournet's Winnwood Chevron of Lafayette does the inspections; checking utility, boat and pole trailers on a regular basis. 'You got to have side marker lights, lights in the back, you have to have lighting for your license plate,' says Simon.

Another inspection requirement is to check for insurance. Actually, that's first on Simon's inspection check list. 'Your insurance for your vehicle normally covers what's towing behind you,' says Simon.

'The fines for any violation of a motor safety code is determined by the courts in the jurisdiction of where the offense occurred. If you're in Lafayette Parish you might receive a different fine than what you would receive in Avoyelles parish,' explains the commissioner for the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles.

A comment titled: Should have know better in response to a report titled: Bass size limits

went to henderson this weekend , should have know better then to go there the first weekend after the size limit change , it was full on idiot that about sums it up , alot of people could care less if there was 1 person in the boat or a boat full of kids they were wide open and stacked on top of everyone , i always thought the dock in the middle of i10 was 2 boats there were people shoveing 3 boats at a time in there not carein if you couldnt get out to off load your boat.

A comment titled: Odumbo in response to a report titled: SCARY!!

I have to say , first i dont like or agree with Odumbo. but i did notice something probley not no big lightbulb moment for anyone , but from being a kid to growing into a adult i cant remember any president that i know his name better then Obama i mean i never seen any president on the news in the news and the most hated ever , i think that alone is worth its weight in gold and i have no idea how he is still there. I was born in 71 and i can remember a few presidents growing up but im sure not all of them i wonder why that is , reagan , bush , bush , clinton thats about it

A comment titled: lol in response to a report titled: Poe-Poe Warning

i had to add to this post , i was at a mechanic shop today and seen a gamewarden come up and even he was there to get a inspection sticker for his own boat trailer , id say they are doing alot of checking for this or he was getting ready the calm before the storm

A comment titled: Display in response to a report titled: Poe-Poe Warning

When i picked up my decal the inspection guy told me they are done like a motor cycle , he told me to put it in a ziplock and put it on the boat , i told him that my truck would be pulling it so couldnt i just keep it with my truck papers he said yes.

A comment titled: Inspections in response to a report titled: Poe-Poe Warning

ya cajun i was just letin ya know didnt want you getin a ticket.

As for inspections and unsafe equipment i find it hard to believe as the real reason , i see cars and trucks and trailers on the road every single day with shattered windshields , no brake lights , no turn signals and more then once have i seen them just passed up by the police , now that being said it the law ill roll with that i went and got a sticker the other day its cheeper then a ticket , but there is no use in getting a sticker when the once that do have stickers are illegal to begin with and no one stops them , i drive all day long so a few of these cars / trucks / trailers i see over and over with the same violations and in the end if you run into one of these people you are automaticly at fault because you hit them in the rear and there is no way to tell if there lights were working to begin with.
