I'm looking for a mechanic that can get a Suburu engine running on one of the mudboats. It has set for 3-4 years and had issues before it sat up. We can't remember what the problem was but I think it was a fuel issue and a slight cooling issue. I'll go through the engine and check the electrical side out and weed out anything in there. I'm also contemplating pulling the engine and putting a brand new one.
Any suggestions would be helpful. I am located in Thibodaux but will travel for a good mechanic. I know about Kirk but have not spoke to him yet. Someone said he no longer does mechanic work unless it is one of his boats.
Will be selling my other boat soon.
14 Ft fiberglass with a 23 Kholer straight drive. Runs 22 mph and has a trailer. Asking around 1500-1200 not sure yet. Papers on everything.
I thought this was pretty interesting since we usually do not see many pintails around here.
Last week, I saw around 30-40 Pintails in the Schriever Overpass Lake. It was mostly drakes from what I could see. Definitely the first time I see any of those around the Thibodaux area. Besides wood ducks, I can't think of any other time that I saw ducks in there. I tried to pull into the cane fields to get some pictures, but it was a little too muddy..
A few weeks ago I had a pretty long talk with a duck guide from Arkansas. He said this was the worse season that he could ever remember. They had multiple hunts where they would not see a duck in the sky. That's a bold statement especially for someone hunting Stuttgart. We started talking about next season and he said that it should be great since the harvest numbers were very low for most states. I have been really thinking about that statement, and here are some things I thought about. I would like to hear some input.
1. Low harvest numbers = more ducks for next year....Everyone will be happy
2. My concern is the breeding grounds. From what I read, It's a fact that more ducks will be returning to the grounds this year than most. I worry about the carrying capacity of the grounds. What if they can't support this amount of ducks? What does that mean for next season?
3. Let's say the grounds can support this huge migration. I would think that competition is now higher for the grounds. What if ducks fight too much for grounds and start nesting too late? Or even worse could be that some ducks will not breed at all.
I just think that's lazy thinking to say since this year was horrible next year will be better. I don't think it works like this.
Does anyone know if or when Cannons boat launch will open back up? Any contact information? I called the number listed online and it has been disconnected. I went two weekends ago and it was locked due to the saltwater. I would like to go launch Thursday and go get some blinds brushed.
I found a knife with a sheath this weekend in Lake Dautrive. The knife was on a trail by some of the public land. Email me with a description of the knife and I will return it to the owner promptly. It is a little rusty, may have been there for quite some time.
I have heard from two different people that a new law was being discussed about life jackets. They must be worn by all occupants while the boat is under power by the main engine(s). This applies to all boats under 26 ft.
Whether this is true or not, what are your thoughts?
I am on both sides of the ordeal. Saves lives, but can become a hassle.
I can also see (big time) this as a new way for the LDWF to get more money. You move 30 feet to a new spot, and forget to put your life jacket on, boom, ticket.
In the past i had a connection with getting corn right from the barges. I would get middled, but i didnt mind it because it still came out cheaper than buying from Academy. Anyways i lost that connection over the past few years and have just been buying the corn from feed stores and other places. I just got some new land this past two months and want to see whats out there so this year i plan on feeding very early and plentiful so im wondering if anybody out there can give me some help with finding barge corn and soybeans. Im completely oblivious to all of this, so you may just be able to go and get it yourself. I dont know thats why im asking.
I do undertsand it is dirty and filled with debris. I still have my filter system laying around somewheres. Dosnt bother me. If anybody wants the design of that, let me know. Ill be able to post some pics.
Been doing a lot of thinking lately about all you guys and how much fun an actual fishing tournament would be. if there is one put on by the sportsman, i am unaware of it.
If i or a volunteer were able and had the time to organize something in the warmer months in grand isle, would anyone be interested in that?
I dont know about prize money and all of that stuff. A lot of details would need to be worked out, but its just a thought.
I chose grand isle because i think that would be the funnest place IMO.
Anybody got any input or ideas to throw around?
Iv'e searched the internet for this question and really didnt find much information about it. I was wondering if anyone knows about how many does dose the average, healthy, mature buck breed in a season? It may sound like a far fetched question for some, but i know there are a few people on here that do research on deer herds. If you have your own place and manage it well, it just seems like a waste to take a big buck early in the rut.
