I am debating the idea of starting a samll company on the side catering to spraying duck leases, cleaning out runs and ditches and maintence necessary before hunting season each year, just wanted some feed back on how many of you would consider hiring out someone to do these things. Any comments are greatly appreciated thanks in advance.

Went to cocodrie today winds were high water from wine island pass to near whiskey pass was like choclate milk but near whiskey pass it cleared up was able to boat 35 nice trout 16-24 inch range with 1 18 inch redfish all on live minnows. I was quite angry with some of the people fishing around me, these people now a days who think because they have a colorful bay boat and wear a fishing shirt makes them a angler they are wrong. I anchored approx 100-150 yards outside of the last boat in line at the pass, some so called angler in a nauti star decided he wanted to fish in between us this upset me a bit but it gets better. Then some idot anchored approx 15-20 yards on the other side of me, but it gets better his buddy decides to chat with him so he pulls up even closer and they chatted for a while if it would have been for their children and wives on board there would have been words exchanged oh the two boats close to me were a champion and a skeeter if either of these boats owners reads this i appreciate what u did u should learn some sportsman ship if all u want to do is ride around and chat go to lake verret don't interfere with people who like to fish take your high dollar glitter filled boats and go somewhere else if anyone who was at whiskey pass this morning reads post a comment if you saw how close they were to me i was in a 21 whaler. Good luck to all the real sportsman out there.

Fish are bitting awesome at Lake Beouf Friday caught 83 lake runner all hand size and bigger, Saturday caught 75 once again all large fish, winds are high though, just drift and don't cast far. Everything was caught between 5 and 8. Now it is time to catch yellow mouths

I am currently looking at a 1995 21 whaler outrage currently own a 1986 18 outrage which is a very good boat and is for sale if anyone is interested but just was wondering if anyone knew of how good the 21 foot outrages are also it has a 1997 225 mercury with 50 hours on the motor if anyone could tell me how good or bad of an engine and boat this it would be appreciated thanks

Light winds this morning which was good but the water still looked like choclate milk tried fishing new cut with no luck so moved on to whiskey pass and caught a two man limit did not find fish to be feeding all that good but with a white doa under a bayside cork it was on had to fish several hours but it was worth it. Fish did not respond to live bait much good luck fishing

A comment titled: i agree in response to a report titled: Fishing Etiquette

I agree many people don't have the same understanding as i do but louisiana is a sportsman paradise sportsman should have a little respect, i understand that during the winter at the tank batteries it gets a little crowded and people fish on top of each other but out in the open water there is no excuse for that kind of behavior what he did is an act of ignorance. I would have thrown my bait as close to him as i could have and made his fishing trip one he remembered i also would have met him at the launch and let my actions do the talking. This kind of situation has happened to me numerous times this summer on the beach side of last island someone sees u catching fish and just pulls up. The only way that this is avoidable wheater hunting or fishing is to get a lease. That is a terrible thing to say with all the public bounties la provides. Sportsman don't be ignorant show a little class on the water. last year i had engine trouble while fishing at PAC a fellow boater refused to tow me in because he wanted to do some more fishing that is totally unexcusible. I still remember his face and his boat and i am still looking for him. Show some respect and help others out when need. Sportsman should be able to count on other sportsman when in need don't u think. tight lines and blue skies

A comment titled: Buy It in response to a report titled: boston whaler, to buy or not to buy

I currently own a 1986 18'Outrage previous I owned a 17' montauk which i think was the toughest little boat ever built my 18' is a tough boat and 3 to 5 foot waves din't bother me it is powered by a 1986 150 mercury black max which (knock on wood)starts and runs as good as a brand new motor out of the box, in my opinion the only thing i don't like about my boat is the lack of storage, but overall my opinion is that whaler builds the best boat there is. My father recently toured the whaler factory and was amazed by the workmanship that goes into one being built,he told me that when the foam is injected into the hull if it is not done 100% perfect the boat is put out for the trash. you think other manufactures do that. Good luck fishing
