I need some help on how to put a Tickle Chain on my 16' trawl, in hopes that it would improve my catch a little. If someone could tell me how long the chain should be, and how many inches hanging from the bottom? Also, what size chain should I use? Any info would help. Thanks.

I was planning on going to Lake Borgne this Saturday, but the wind forcast is calling for a 14 mlh wind from the east and Im thinking that that is going to be to much for my 16ft skiff, so I was woundering if I can trawl in the Little Lake, that is just north of Bornge? And if so are there any numders of shrimp in in there? And if not can someone give me an idea where to go ? Thanks !

With all this rain we are haveing , will it have some sort of an effect with the shrimp on the east side of Ponchartrain, I was hoping to try to catch a few pounds for my freezer this next coming weekend ! I only have a 16 ft trawl, should i try by the causeway or closer to Lake Borge ?

June 10, 2012 at 3:50pm

Can anyone tell me if there are any shrimp in Lake Salvador? I have a small skiff pulling a 16ft trawl. Im not looking to catch a boat load ,but I'd like to put a few lbs in the freezer. Is it posible now or should i wait till later in the season ?

Just wondering about the game cameras out there? I haven't seen any pictures of any Louisiana bears sence deer season has opened up and now closed ? I enjoy keeping up with the local bear population ,and as much as time that I spend in the woods, I have never been fortunate enough too see one in the wild, so recent pictures will have to do ! Thanks.

I have a 23 vanguard long tail that is doing the same exact thing, it also leaks oil from the crank shaft seal. I have change that seal a number of times but it just doesn't want to stop leaking, the noise sounds like something is loose internally, if you find any info out PLEASE, feel me in as well .

Nah, ant no fear hear, I grew up in the swamps, I just don't have much trawling experience , so I'd be glad to see some pictures of a trawl set up! Also do you think I would be pushing my luck pulling a 23' with a 16' Reno skiff?

A comment titled: Bigger Trawl in response to a report titled: Shrimp Trawl

Keakar, I have a 23' trawl also, but my boat is only a 16' lake skiff with a 40hp on the back. The boards on the 23' trawl are 30x16, and I was thinking the larger boards would put to much strain on my boat. Would my smaller boards (24x14 witch is on my 16' net) work on my 23' trawl?

A comment titled: Stobs in response to a report titled: Gar

I like to use pieces of bambo cane 2 or 3ft in lenth tied close to my jugs. In my opinion the the pieces of cane do a couple of things, help as a drag. If there is a breeze of wind the the cane will slow it down from being pushed to bank, and you can always use it as a grab handle. Thats just how I was always fixed mine, Good luck to all!

No I didn't get any Catfish or trash fish. I thought about the Amite River but I ended up running the Tickfaw River area. Both are good spots.
