DO NOT LAUNCH AT SERINGE'S!
Attention recreational fishermen,
I had the worst experience at SERINGE's Marina. Saturday, some buddies and I went to Delacroix to get in on the fishing action. The launch at Seringe's had several boats in line, so we headed to the Sweetwater Marina launch. Unfortunately, Sweetwater was out of live shrimp, so we boated over to Seringe's to see if they had live shrimp. I asked the woman at Seringe's if she had any live shrimp and how much. She said yes and her next response shocked me. 'How much are they charging everywhere else?', she questioned me. I informed her that I haven't bought live shrimp in years, and wouldn't know. She then questioned me if I launched at her launch, in which I responded, 'no ma'am, we launched at the other marina.' She then informed me that since I didn't launch my boat there, I couldn't purchase her shrimp. I even offered to pay for the boat launch and she refused and told me to 'go fishing' and 'get on out'. She was extremely rude and unprofessional, and I would advise not to use her services. She will never get my business and I will advise that nobody launches at her place. The people at Sweetwater Marina were nicer, unfortunately, they were out of bait.
I have questions about trolling motor batteries and onboard chargers. If I have one cranking battery and two trolling motor batteries(24v system)do I need to buy a two bank charger or a three bank charger? What is the difference if the onboard charger is a 5 a 10 or a 15 amp system? Do the higher amperage charge the batteries quicker? Any help would be appreciated.
I'm bringing a buddy fishing this Fri. and Sat. to Catfish Lake area. I do all my fishing in this area, but really have never been out of the main bayous, mostly due to posted and unposted waters. Whenever I go, it is usually hit or miss. I read reports of fishermen catching around oyster beds, but I have never located any. If anyone can provide detailed information in locating these reefs, or any potential hotspots this time of year, I would be gratefully appreciative and will post my endeavors as soon as I return...hopefully with a full icechest. The names of landmarks I'm familliar with are only the ones listed on mapquest. How is the sulphur mine this time of year? Thanks to everyone that reads and posts their reports so biannual anglers such as myself and all others get some advantage on the water. Thanks and God bless.
What is the word on Elmer's Island?
