I have not been to Elmers Island in a long time, and I have a few questions. i know that Saturday is going to be a little windy.
Can you drive on the beach and if so how are the conditions. I have 4x4 but sand can look ok and suck all 4 tires down very quickly if it is not packed well enough.
Are there any special permits that have to be filled out now that the LDWF is in control of the island i.e. self clearing permits like the ones for wildlife management areas.
How has the fishing been the past few weeks. mainly this is a trip for my three year old to get out of the house and to the beach, and i was going to bring some fishing rod and and maybe see if he is going to like it before I decide to put him in the boat.
I am thinking of trying to fish lafitte this weekend, and I was wondering where I could pick up some live croakers for bait. I called Joe's today, but all they sell is shrimp and cockahoe's. I never have had any luck with cockahoe minnows. Any assistace would be greatly appreciated.
I need some help! I have 2 spinning reels that need some attention and cleaning. I have called Chags and Puglias to see if they can recomend someone. Chags could not take it because his guy was in the hospital and Puglias refered me to somewhere on Julia St in New Orleans. I have googled it with no avail. I need some Ideas because I do not want to take these reels apart and mess something up. Anyone know of a place in the new orleans area i.e. Metairie, Kenner, or Laplace that I can take my reels?
I am in the market for a new truck I have read all of the reviews, and have narrowed my decision down to the nissan titan 4x4 crew cab or the ford f 150 4x4 crew cab. My problem with the nissan is that I feel if I pay the kind of money that they are asking for them I think that they could do something a little better with the interior. I also can't find a lot of safey data on the nissan. The ford on the other hand has great safety ratings nice interior and very good ratings overall it just doesn't have the power the nissan has. What do you guy's drive?
I am in need of a little help. my wife gave me a cajun microwave for my birthday, and I am cluless as to where i can purchase a suckling pig to try it out. I live in the LaPlace area and i am willing to travel to purchase it. I have googled it with nothing turning up.
How long of a ride do you guys think it would be from bait Inc on Paris rd. to Shell Beach if I were to go by boat via the MRGO. My cruising speed is 42mph.
I am getting back into fishing and I am a little rusty. Is 10lb test power pro with a 20-40 lb test leader good for your average 16-24" red fish.
I just wanted to know if any of you guys out there have had any good luck with ford dealerships in the state. I am in the market for a new f150 ext cab 4x4, and it seems like the only people who want to deal are dealerships out of state. I am looking to upgrade due to me and my wife having a 10mo son and the ranger 4x4 is not cutting it anymore. Please let me know how you feel about the dealers here.
I AM IN NEED OF AN ATV MECHANIC. I HAVE A 1998 HONDA FOREMAN 450S THAT HAS A FEW PROBLEMS. I KNOW HOW TO DO THE WORK, BUT WITH A NEW BABY I DO NOT HAVE THE TIME. ANY INFO WOULD BE GREATLY APRECIATED. I DO NOT WANT TO DEAL WITH THE DEALER INFACT I WOULD RATHER SINK IT IN THE RIVER RATHER THAN DEAL WITH THE HONDA DEALER. I LIVE IN LAPLACE AND I AM WILLING TO TRAVEL 1HR.
I HAVE A 18'6" KEY LARGO BAY BOAT THAT HAS BROKEN STEERING. THE LAST TIME I WENT OUT I WAS A BONE HEAD AND DID NOT LUBE THE STEERING AND STRIPPED THE STEERING GEAR UNDER THE CENTER CONSOLE. ANYONE KNOW OF A GOOD PLACE TO BUY A NEW STEERING SET UP.
I AM GOING TO MEADVILLE, MS TO DEER HUNT THIS WEEKEND AND WAS WANDERING IF ANY OF YOU GUYS WHO HUNT NEER THERE WOULD KNOW IF THE DEER ARE STILL IN RUT UP THERE.
WELL GUY'S I RECIEVED A NEW GUN FOR CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR. IT IS A REMINGTON SPR 453. NOW I KNOW THAT REMINGTON DOES NOT MAKE IT THEY EXPORT IT FROM RUSSIA AND PUT THIER NAME ON IT. WELL SAT MORNING I PUT IT TO WORK AND IT PERFORMED GREAT AS FAR A I AM CONCERNED. THE GAS OPPERATED SEMI AUTO DID NOT JAM OR GIVE ME ANY PROBLEMS. I FEEL THAT FOR A SEMI AUTO THAT COSTS 300.00 AND PERFORMS GOOD IS NOT BAD. NOT TO FORGET THAT IT COME IN 2-3/4, 3 ,AND 3-1/2" CHAMBER. AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED IT HAS DONE EVERYTHING I NEEDED IT TO DO.
Sat. morning was great. Shot a good mixed bag consisting of grey's, mallards, spoonies, and 1 beautiful bw teal drake in full plume. I want to mount him but need advice on a good waterfowl taxidermist.
Well today was the last hunt of the first split for me. So far this has been the best season for me since I have started duck hunting. It maybe just because I am starting to get more experienced in the art of waterfowling or i was just lucky this season so far. I have been duck hunting for about 10 years now, and my calling is getting better as well as my decoy spreads.
Because of work, and getting adjusted to starting a new family. I have only been able to make 4 hunts with great success. With a 2 man blind my dad and I managed 40 ducks which consisted mainly grey ducks.
I do have one question. Does anyone hunt that area and have success shooting wigeon? I would love to put a drake on my wall but I just don't see any.
I am thinking of purchasing my wife a 20ga. for xmas this year in hopes that she will want to join me duck hunting next year. I was wandering what is best for her first shotgun auto. or pump.
this morning was the best opener i have ever seen. i we had shot better we would have had a 2 man limit by 7:30 but after 7:45 everything slowed down. ended the morning with 2greys,3teal,5spoonies. awsome!
I KNOW THIS IS A STUPID QUESTION, BUT ARE YALL READY TO WACK AND STACK TOMORROW MORNING. I KNOW I AM! THERE MAY NOT BE ALOT OF BIRDS DOWN, BUT I AM SURE I WILL GET A FEW SHOTS.
ANYONE SEEING ANY DUCKS AROUND THE CHALMETTE, BAYOU BIENVENUE AREA???
DOES ANYONE OUT THERE OWN A OTIS TECH GUN CLEANING KIT AND IF SO HOW DO YOU LIKE IT. ANY FEED BACK WOULD BE GREAT!
I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO. MY GRANDFATHER WANTED TO GIVE HIS 2 MONTH OLD GRANDSON ONE OF HIS GUNS SO BAD THAT HE COULD NOT HELP HIMSELF ANYMORE. SO THIS WEEKEND MY WIFE AND I WENT TO SEE MY GRANDPARENTS AND HE GAVE ME A BRAND NEW .17HMR WITH A NICE SCOPE THAT HE HAD WON IN A CONTEST 3 YEARS AGO THE GUN HAS NEVER BEEN SHOT "BRAND NEW". HERE IS MY QUESTION DO YALL THINK IT IS OK TO SHOOT THE GUN BECAUSE I REALLY WANT TO. IT LOOKS LIKE A FUN GUN TO SHOOT OR DO I WAIT ANOTHE COUPLE OF YEAR SO HE CAN SHOOT HIS FIRST BRAND NEW GUN FROM HIS G.GRANDPA AND BREAK IT IN HIMSELF. WHAT WOULD YOU DO???
