Since purchasing my boat last year, I continue to have problems with fueling up my boat. Each time, I only add about 10 gallons because that's about the time my patience runs out. It takes about 45 minutes to pump 10 gallons. If I flow it too fast, it either comes shooting back out of the fill spout or out of the vent tube on the side of the boat. I have read on other forums of people having similar issues, I was hoping that someone could give me some advice as to what is causing this issue, and how to resolve it. Any help is greatly appreciated..

In search of bait shrimp around the Lafitte area. I live out in Luling, and I'm hoping to find some bait shrimp before I launch Saturday morning. From everything that I've been reading, bait shrimp is the hot ticket right now. Please help me out...

A friend of mine is coming in town from Pennsylvania, and he's never been to Louisiana or fished in saltwater. I am hoping to put him on some big reds or even some specs on friday, the 20th. I plan to use plastics, but i would like to know if live bait is a better option. Being a rookie boat owner, i am also lacking in knowledge as far as where to go and where to avoid. If anyone could give me suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated. I understand you wont give me your honey hole, but any advice would definitely be helpful! Thanks to anyone for a response, and happy fishing!

I purchased the Edge coordinates for Lafitte and Cocodrie/Dulac. But i inadvertently bought them for the Garmin instead of my Humminbird 581iHD. I would like to know if their is anyway to exchange them. Also, the Humminbird unit is still pretty new to me, and I am operating from a Mac computer. So how would I transfer the data from the computer to the SD card? Thank you for your help and knowledge thus far. You are a great help for a beginner fisherman like myself!

A comment titled: Sounds just crazy enough to actually work in response to a report titled: Slow fueling my Blazer Bay

Givin my boat a blow job huh? lol I'm going to try your method this evening when I attempt to fuel up. I knew their had to be a short term solution for this, and like you said, their is definitely some sort of 90 degree angle in the line. I just don't want to imagine the headache it'll be to re-do the fill hose, because its all tucked away below deck... But thanks again for the advice.

A comment titled: good idea in response to a report titled: Where are the bait shrimp?

That's actually not a half bad idea. It seems like the only ones who know where to find them are hogging them for themselves lol can't say that i blame them though... Thanks for the advice

A comment titled: Thank you in response to a report titled: How are the fish in Dularge?

Thanks for the response, and i will be looking for some clean and protected waters. We will be launching out of Jugs in Dularge, and according to their website, they don't have any live shrimp. Do you know if this is accurate? And if so, where else can i find some Live/ Bait shrimp?

I have just e-mailed you the order confirmation. Thank you for your timely response, and as soon as i get the correct data, i will attempt to do the transfer. In the mean time, i will contact Humminbird. Thank you for all of your help.
