I want to take my kids crabbing. I have a boat and don't mind traveling. I live in BR and was thinking about going to Bayou Lacombe and crabbing at the mouth of the lake or in the canal but I heard the crabs aren't really there. I was hoping some of you could give me ideas where to go. I have done really well at Grand Isle, but that is far but if I have to I will go there. Thanks in advance.
We have had a couple nice trips lately. On the first one we started out qith live shrimp as the preferred bait. Once we ran out we finished our limit with DOAs. We left them biting. A few days later went back and got 60 more. We ran out of shrimp again and they wanted nothing to do with plastic.
I'm looking to buy some hoop nets, used in very good shape or new. Where could I get some? Thank you.
I let my son's friends borrow my Alumacraft 16 ft flat and they hit a stump pretty hard and put a large dent in the bottom and popped out a few rivets. I need to get it repaired and I live in Denham Springs. Does anyone have any recommendations for someone to repair it? Thanks for your help.
As a rule, will deer come into a field if cows are present? My son hunts a rye grass field and the cows are now in it. Just curious as to what everyone's experiences are?
This past Sunday was unreal. My son and I met Capt'n Kris Roberts at Dockside Marina and we headed for the trout and man did he put us on them. It was by far one of the best trips I have been on in a very long time. We were double up a good bit of the morning. If the rain hadn't run us off, there is no doubt we would have put our 75 in the box. We ended up with 44 and didn't have to measure one of them. If any of you need a great trip at a very affordable price, get in touch with him. He is very professional and patient. It is worth every penny.
I need a 4 wheeler mechanic in the Baton Rouge area that can replace a CV Boot on my front axle. Does anyone know of a good mechanic in the area that I won't have to take out a mortgage on my house just to get this replaced?
My son and I duck hunt in Monterey. My son is looking for somewhere to occasionally deer hunt around there. He is a Freshman at Louisiana College in Pineville and is will be very respectful of your land or club. I have no interest in deer hunting. If you have any land or club that would allow him to hunt a few times this season I will be happy to pay or trade duck hunts. Please call me at 225-933-2358 or email me if you have or know of anything in the area. Thank you very much.
I tried posting this in the Classifieds, but it would let me post without a sub-category, but the sub-category was whited out...I am looking to buy a three leged ski tow bar to fit on my 24ft Bay Stealth. Please let me know what you have. Thanks. 225-933-2358 call or text
I am looking for 55 gallon plastic drums/barrels with both ends intact. If anyone has any idea where I might can get some, please let me know. Thank you.
I am going cat fishing in the morning at Manchac. I know of a few different places to go there, but would like to go with someone that really knows the area. I have the boat. I am just lookig for someone to go with me. Anyone interested?
I have a friend whose son shot a green wing teal this season and his dad promised to get it mounted. Well, the bird was shot up too bad to be mounted and now the son keeps asking about it. Does anyone out there have a mounted green wing teal that you want to get rid of or one in the freezer that he can get mounted. Thank you very much.
We have three families going to Grande Isle this summer, preferably June or July, and am looking for a large enough camp to hold 18-20 people. I have looked on some rental websites but wanted to try the La. Sportsman for recommendations. Any places we should avoid, ie bad experiences? Any places that were excellent? Also, we would prefer to be on a canal to dock our boats. Our next choice is the beach. But will entertain every recommendation. Thanks.
I had a friend photoshop these pics and thought they turned out great, especially the mallards.
Few more pics
My son killed this 9pt on Dec. 23. It was an awesome experience.
Here are a few pics from this season.
I am going to Portland, Orgeon next week for work and was wondering what are some 'Must See's and Do's' while I'm there. I have never been there before and will have some time in the evenings and weekend to look around. Also, if anyone has a duck hunting friend that wouldn't mind me tagging along, that would be great and I will be happy to swap a hunting trip or fishing trip down here. So, if any of you have been there before, post up. Thanks.
We have had a great first split. The best first split our blind has ever had. We hunted our pit 7 out of 8 days and killed 157 ducks. We had an average of 4 people in the blind. We only lost 4, but without my lab, we would have lost at least 40. Steel shot just don't kill. It just wounds and you have to chase the duck. For you that don't have a dog, I can't stress enough how much fun they are to watch work, not to mention your recovery rate goes way up.
We had the best opening weekend I have ever had. The ducks were everywhere. We had 5 hunters each day and we were limited out both days by 7:45. Each day we had a mixed bag of teal, greys, spoonies, mallards, pintail, and redheads which are very unusual. We were hunting south of Vidalia in a rice field.
