just curious, what other additions (proteins) do you add to crawfish,shrimp and crab boils. I know everyone adds sausage to the boils but anything else? I have added a pork loin to the water and it came out great. Anyone tried catfish filets?
Don't you think a recipe section would be a great idea for this website?
Hit the Hwy 11 bridges this morning.
Fresh shrimp on the bottom. Had fun,
came home with 3 17" drum, a nice channel
mullet and a very nice blue catfish. Was
a little disappointed with the size of
the bait shrimp and the fact that they
were very soft and keep flying off the
hook when we would cast, Oh well. I do
have a question for you, what is this????
We caught this by the crossover on the
old twin spans.
Ok guys its been a while since I got the boat wet. Due to a scheduling miscommunication I am off Monday and do not have to watch the kids!!!!!!! I am hoping to go out Monday. Whats gonna be my best bet between Hopedale/Delacroix, Lake Pontch, Bayou Beinvenue, and the Rigolets areas??? Help. I might also consider trying the Tchefuncte for some green trout or cats?? I just want to go out and feel something pulling my line!!!!!
I have a Garmin 478 with the Mapsource TOPO 2008 loaded. I have two questions. Is it normal to have more detail shown (depth, navigational markers, etc) on the unit than on my PC? Also on the unit it will show notes and when you drill down on them one part of the message says "For a listing of all symbols and abbreviations see Chart One" how do I see chart one? Thanks
HAs anybody been out to the Mandeville Pier lately? I would like to take the kids out one night this week.
Thinking about heading out this Sunday. Considering either Lake Borgne or Hopedale marsh. If we go out of BSM what time should I plan on being there to even have a chance at getting some live swimps? Does anyone any reports from the Lake Borgne/Chef Pass/Bayou Bienvenue areas??
I am in the market for a GPS unit. I am really new to this and I am planning on attending a seminar once I get the best unit for me. I am considering the Garmin 276c and the 478. The 276c has the base maps while the 478 has the City Navigator maps and the g2 marine maps. I am planning on using this unit for both the car and boat. Neither unit come with the TOPO 2008 map software - is this a neccesary add-on? And if so do I need a garmin data card to transfer the routes and waypoints to the units or can this be done via the supplied usb cable? They both come with the trip and waypoint manager. It sounds like the 478 is the one I should get since it has road and marine maps built in, but are the built in g2 marine maps and the trip and waypoint manager software enough? We have been fishing mainly in the Hopedale/Bay Eloi area and will eventually try other areas of SE LA as time goes by. Pricing the 276 with the additional map software and hardware for car mounting and the 478 with its included maps and accessories they price out about the same. I am so confused!!!!! Help please.
