UPDATE: The 'Rodney Dangerfield' of the Sportsman writers limited out yesterday while fishing with Captain Jack Payne of Sweetwater marina, while the magazines esteemed editor fished yesterday also and STRUCK OUT. That means he caught zero, zip, nada, nix, nothing-at-all, goose egg, zilch.

Capt. Paul, my Garmin GPS is mounted into the console of my boat and is not removable. Is there a way to load your EDGE waypoints into it?

Information Request: I'd like to hear from some Pointe a la hache anglers about fishing that area for an article I'm writing for an upcoming issue of Louisiana Sportsman Magazine. I'd really appreciate any tips and advice on good areas to fish right now... you guys know the stuff we need: The WHERE and HOW to do it. Please e-mail me and if you don't mind, include your phone number in case I need more info. Thanks! Rusty Tardo

What a morning with Charter Captain and Champion Waterfowler Mike Herrmann! The ducks were moving in the stiff winds and 43 degree temperatures, and they kept wanting to land among our decoys. Pesky critters, we had to shoot them to shoo them away! The water back in the ponds is almost mud but the Go-Devil chewed it up and pushed us through. We had our 18 bird limit by 9AM, and would have had it sooner if the rest of us shot better. The tally: 2 pintails, five grays, four or five mottled and the rest green wing teal. A great morning in the ponds!

A comment titled: Re: xpress bay boat for local fishing? in response to a report titled: xpress bay boat for local fishing?

There are pros and cons to both aluminum and fiberglass, but after 40 years of fishing out of both, I'd go with fiberglass hands down. Aluminum is a perfect second boat, but if you are going to be a one boat angler, a fiberglass bay boat will be more versatile in different waters and conditions. My 2 cents

The Locks are supposedly to remain open from today (Wednesday, Nov.26) through Sunday the 30th, and then closures resume on Monday Dec. 1.
I wholeheartedly agree - DO NOT attempt to go through the locks in a yak. Good way to die

A comment titled: Pips in response to a report titled: Boat launch

Pip's is closed, but a few die-hards still like to launch there. The backdown is very steep and in poor shape so I don't recommend it. Go a mile past it to Breton Sound Marina

I suggest you take it to a professional. A jerry-rig repair might make matters worse. I've been dealing with Gabe at Advanced Marine in Kenner if you need a recommendation (504)458-0076

A comment titled: RustyHookz in response to a report titled: Midnight Lump

You would be taking quite a risk to fish the Lump in any Bay Boat. They call them 'Bay' boats for a reason! They're great for the lakes and bays, but they're just not designed for the kind of seas you will face in the open gulf. And the gulf is very fickle this time of year. You'll be anchoring in 200 feet of water, so most skippers have at least 600 feet of anchor line. Three to four foot seas are commonplace, and five and six foot seas can occur quickly. My advice: fish the Lump in a deep V or Cat.... and be safe!

A comment titled: response to rou in response to a report titled: Where are the specks

There was a good article in the Times Picayune Friday or Saturday on fishing off the bank in Reggio. I know they do catch trout, bass and occasional reds right off the side of the road, and in the back of the marina. Ask Mr Harold at the Reggio Marina where to fish off the bank. He's very friendly and he does it successfully all the time. Winter is also a great time to fish off the bank at the Myrtle Grove Marina. Wait until a cold front blows down hard and cold, and then go fishing. It'll cost you $10. per person to fish off the bank, but sometimes the fish are really stacked up in there.
