anyone know if there is a dive shop in grand isle to fill dive tanks? Staying in a camp and plan on spearfishing a few days so need to get refilled. Any help would be great.
So I hate this new louisiana sportsman website, you cant look at latest reports at all. No option to sort by date posted anymore. Go back to the old way. It was nice and worked fine.
I'm considering buying a 20' alumafab hull and putting my 115 four stroke on it. What are you guys thoughts on it. I love the hull but I taked to someone and they said it wasn't a good setup.
So I value any opinion.
So killed this boar friday evening. I was wondering what you guys figured he weighs.
Took an hour to drag him out a 1/4 mile.
I did field dress him too. Anyway I figured
close to 200, game warden seemed to agree.
Thanks and my biggest too.
so i want to make a weekday hunt, Tuesday or Wednesday, but I'm not sure if tommorow is the better or Wednesday is. They sy the front will come through tommorow, but it will be faliing temps and raising winds. Wednesday is supposed to cold and very windy. So which one, I'm thinking Wednesday, but I wouldn't mind an opinion because I'm ony four years into duck hunting, and usaully I just go when I'm not working.
So how was everyone's teal season? Mine was interesting. I hunted Salvador opening morning, never saw a teal, shot 15 gallinules. Next morning went to Manchac, saw seven killed my 6 birds by 9am. Last sunday back to manchac, loads of teal. Killed my six again by 8am. Today, last teal hunt went to manchac again, never saw a single teal, my 3yo killed two gallinules and a nutria. So overall ok season for me, but not great. I hope everyone did as well or better than me.
i'll postem just cause i can findem myself
Alright heading to the lake again tommorow, wondering if dockside is out of shrimp where else can I get them?? I called dockside at 530 this evening no answer. Thanks guys
so thanks for the tips on lake p, I went out and filled the box. One stop shop for me. 17 trout, four flounder, 2 sheepshead, 4 black drum. All caught under sliding cork. I threw about ten trout back. 6 or 7 are 3 lbs the rest are from 12 to 16 inches. Awesome trip started at 7 on trailer at 11 home at noon. thanks for the tips guys. By the way this was the first time I got to just sit back in my bass boat and relax. I only moved to bait the hook or put a fish in the chest. I literaly anchoered and didn't leave until the 50 shrimp I bought were all eaten. Thanks again for the info, I think I'm addicted now lol.
Ok so i am going to attempt to fish lake tommorow and stray from my green buddies. I plan on launching at dockside, fishing live shrimp. I'll use a carolina rig and weight will determine on current, a treble hook will be used. My question is should I fish the train bridge or the twin span and where is a good spot try. I am a complete rookie in the lake. I don't want a secret spot just a good community spot to try. I realize if the water is dirty don't fish there, I'll look for green if I can find it. Thanks Guys!!!!!!
So went to delacroix today, buy shrimp, livewell was dead, so no live shrimp, went out anyway. The wind was up at 630am by ten it was terrible. We still managed 40 15' to 18' specks, a few sailcats, and an unbelivable amount of hardheads all caught on plastic. It was a good trip a shame we couldn't use live shrimp and the wind was brutal.
So, went turkey hunting at my lease in mississippi, hadn't went all year, first and last weekend for me.
So I went to small food plot where a source tells me a few were gobbling. On the way down I here so owl hooters on the end of our property so I slip in setup and wait. They keep hooting and then 3 birds start going nuts. I soft purred and soft yelp. Immediate response from two birds. Within minutes they hit again even closer. I wait, do one more soft yelp and soft purr. They hit again even closer then I see two white heads coming down a ridge. I line up waiting, then on the knoll in front I hear something else walking up..... A red fox comes out sneaking to my decoy, the gobblers pop and putt and fly and needless to say somehow my lead flew in the red foxes direction!!!! Well,
no turkey but a turkey eater is dead and caped. Good weekend, first time for me to call a varmint.
Didn't hear anymore birds rest of weekend. Anyhow hope everyone enjoyed my weekend report.
Can anyone tell me why the north side of airline hwy is closed to vehicles, i hunt here and cannot drive to go hunt now. Rangers didn't have a reason. I have a nice bass boat and I wont use that for hunting. So my only option is that road. Any help would be great. Wrecked my opener.
So I am going to open a can of worms. Yesterday I was fishing in Lafitte, 5 min from boat launch in my bass boat. I had a guy with alabama numbers pass me 25 feet off my bow in a 24 ranger bay boat going 25 to 30 mph, he put a wave over my bow, I have his numbers and video taped him when he passed later, he slowed down this time cause i told him he's getting reported, I had several other boats meaning every freaking moron oout there not slow down, they either plow by or speed by regardless, they are less 100 ft from my boat. This is ridiculous, to top it off I watched a guy who slowed down for me and another guy fishing have a guy in a trihull pass 15 feet to his port side. This is outrageous, I will film everyone doing this from now on and turn you in. People have no rrespect out there. i called wildlife enforcement about two weeks ago cause of the same problem except it was in barataria waterway by the shrimp processing plant, i was anchoring 30 ft off the dock and no one slowed down in fact they sped by me closer. Ridiculous. Wildlife said in lafitte the only rule is no wake 300ft from a boat launch. Well that definitly is not enforced try launching at goose bayou or Joes guaruanteed to have your boat slammed around. So I was told that if I get waved out by someone, if it damages my boat or hurts someone on my boat thye are solely responsoble but you need a witness or a video camera. Well yesterday I had both, and I promise anyone who waves me out will get a ticket in the mail. I'm tired of it I go fishing where there shouldn't be any 2-3 foot waves coming over my bow and there are. I have a bad back and love lafitte I catch alotta bass out there and won't stop going. But if you find yourself on candid camera, you better check your mail box cause you are getting a ticket. Simple Solution guys : SLOW DOWN TO A DEAD IDLE, I have a 65mph bass boat and I slow for other boats, there are no fish that need to be 1 minute sooner. Hope I don't film you cause tickets aren't cheap. Just ask Mr. Alabama in a few days.
