If I was willing to spend lots more money, I would have done that in the first place. Some of us are on limited budgets. It did not occur to me that they'd make a GPS without maps.

Thoughts? Can tithing on fish increase your catch?

One point that is mentioned in the video but underappreciated is the importance of practicing with the same rod, reel, lure weight, and leader length as one will be using for real.

Lots of guys in the younger generation don't use chains. Shoot, in the age of spot lock and power poles, many don't even have anchors. To me, the anchor is an essential safety device on a boat. If the boat loses power, I'd like to decide if I stay in one spot or let the wind and current carry me along.

I know in Louisiana, lots of poboys are fried. And one can always prepare the fish with your favorite fried fish recipe. But I prefer the fish grilled, so my wife makes them that way.

Sure, Jesus performed lots of fish-related miracles in the Bible.

Not sure how opening the Bonnet Carre spillway is going to tank the fishing in Grand Isle since it dumps Mississippi River water into Lake Pontchartrain making it fresh and muddy and eventually freshening and muddying water East of the Mississippi, many miles from Grand Isle. Grand Isle fishing in December was very good during our trip there, but we target mostly bull redfish and drum. I expect cracked crab on the bottom to produce well all winter. Things were more hit and miss for the guys chasing speckled trout. The fish are always around GI somewhere, but there are times when finding the trout requires more experience and skill.

Same technique works on similarly sized croaker and whiting, also great bait for shark and redfish.

I prefer cracked crab in most cases. But the claws are useful when you run out of crabs or if the catfish are tearing up your cracked halves before the bull reds and drum can get to them. A crab claw will almost always last until a big fish gets to it.

I should have included, 'After launching, pull your empty trailer and vehicle up and park them in an appropriate spot.' Funny story - a couple weeks ago, a fellow on Grand Isle left his truck running and his trailer backed up into the water on the ramp. Guess he was in a hurry to get fishing. Fortunately, it was a very slow day at the ramp and the remaining open lane handled all the traffic.

More action with the rod under review.

I really could have used some help. A number of folks declined my invitation to come along. I sort of got lucky. By setting up on the channel ledge, the big drum I was hooking in the channel wanted to stay in the deeper water and pretty much let me reel them straight in rather than going all around the boat. This allowed me to land fish after fish without tangling in all the lines. Usually, one needs the other anglers in the boat to reel in the other lines to prevent tangling, especially in the case of two big fish on at once.

Still biting. Caught 7 more in an hour in a half the next day!
