Question I have some guests of the wife in from California !!! and they want a boat ride??? around Port sulfur, Buras area 'Question' If I haul my Bay boat and spend 80+ on fuel 'I' would want to fish some areas Bay Washington out to 4 Bayou pass area But the 4 '''tourists''' don't want to fish. They are so 'afraid' of the oil dispersant, After some posts online showing the shrimp with no eyes, Blisters on the fish etc!! I fish all the time and eat what I catch but they are convinced the fish are toxic, This group is doing a story on this online etc. It kind of pisses me off but on the other hand if I catch a few trout and show them how healthy the area is and cut open a few trout maybe I can help put a positive spin on some of these meths and help stop negative press and yes I will defer them to some experts and Wildlife and fisheries for the facts MY QUESTION: DO ALL THE QUESTS NEED A FISHING LICENSE IF I'M THE ONLY ONE FISHING ????

Just know, I love the Marsh and yes its not what it once was but I'm not either!!! its just different. I hope to show them day break over the marsh maybe a few dolphins swimming around the boat. Outsiders are always amazed at our wildlife in the marsh.

Thanks in advance for an answer to my question

I put a Garmin 421 on my 18ft bay boat then read the fine print and now I see I need SD charts for a more detailed look on the marsh along coast etc was wondering if the Garmin BlueChart g2 Vision Brownsville Key Largo VUS515L would be detailed enough ? Any one with this unit

Any help would be appreciated Thanks

A white female was shot by a 175lb Excalibur crossbow, They say she ran 20ft and dropped dead. She got hit by a Rage 2 blade at 10 yards from a hunter from a tree stand ITS A TRAGIC STORY she leaves behind four children and a husband.

They are telling everyone NO FLOWER but All donations can be sent to 'Our lady of perpetual sleep ministry'

Sad photo, If you look at the picture of the tragic seine you can even see the entrance hole VERY SAD

When is this madness going to stop !!!!

Anyone having any luck fishing the beaches and around the bays of Empire, Pre-Katina it was my special place to haul large yellow mouths to the ice chest in the month of July, For 30 years the large breeders would always come into the first inside shallow bays along Empire, I would always fill my ice chest with 23- 27 ' yellow mouths and sometimes hit that huge trout that would just look like a large red fish !!!! I tried in 09 but they were building the beaches back and had the water looking like mud !! Hope the water is clear now the work is done and hope the fish return to their normal pattern of 30+ years. I'm going to test my pattern once again

Any news of to much fresh water from the river or other unseens would be appreciated.

Thx all

Question ? Is there a Boat launch open under the Impire Bridge, Pre-Katrina I would fish out of there but Post Katrina who knows

Thanks for any help

At 55 I sure felt my age that "day" Now on to bigger and heavier deer. Killed with my KP1 45-70 leveroution bullet (shoulder shot) small hole, I expected larger hole.

A comment titled: Crossbows .. Killing machines in response to a report titled: Crossbow

Great weapon ....Rabbit should try rather then commenting... I use a Excalibur and hunt + Kill Hogs all the time with mine.. I would recommend the Rage 2 bladed extreme (Broad head is Yellow colored) 2.3 cutting !!! but when you hit them it puts a 5' slice through them.. Fast Kill the last two I killed all the guts burst out the entrance hole..Hogs ran 20 yds and dropped Crossbows kill the hogs better then my compound bow.and put a bigger hole then my 444 or my 45-70 rifles.. Get a broad head target and practice with the practice heads Rage makes...

Good luck

A comment titled: RAGE BROAD HEADS in response to a report titled: CROSSBOW BROADHEADS

I recommend going online to utube and type in Rage Broadhead DEER kills and watch the fun!!! God In a few videos you can see the Blood squirting out the hole from the tree stand !! Through the camera !!! and all kills fall with in camera range ! now that is cool with a bow !!!!no more tracking when you use Rage!!!

A comment titled: 175 excalibur in response to a report titled: CROSSBOW BROADHEADS

Don't listen to the most of these comments >>> I have compound bows but I now just Hunt with my Excalibur ,,Phoenix model 175 pound xbow it smokes the hogs and deer... Last year I heard of 3 hogs shot with compound bow which were lost ,,, Every hog I have shot drop 20 feet.. in fact the last I shot was shot as she was running past my stand ..the arrow hit a little far back but she spun and ran 20 feet and dropped. when I walked over to the pig the arrow past through cutting 4 ribs on both sides and all her guts where hanging out the entrance side of the pig !!!! Now I have shot tons of deer/Hogs with compounds and have NEVER seen that before!! I use the bow I mentioned above but I use Fast Flight Flemish twist sting.. 300ft sec. with the new rage 'Yellow' for a 2.3' cutting hole going in and it makes a 5' hole coming out devastating NO ANIMAL CAN LIVE WITH A HOLE LIKE THAT!!!! I have shot Hogs and deer with the red rage which work fine but they tend to open while in the bow if you just tap them so I switched to the new version :Yellow which stays closed and gives me .3 more longer blade!! And yes worth every Penny !!! My Hunting Bud used fixed blades and lost Hogs Deer every year until he bit the bullet and bought the new Rage 'yellow version and he has not lost a animal yet NO FIXED BLADE CAN COMPARE!!! The twist sting can be twisted to factory line ' mark' yes a fixed mark on the where the string crosses the extender of the xbow SO I can sight the bow in and when the sting starches I us mu string changing rope and twist the string until it lines with the mark !! so it stays true to the scope !! and is now sighted back in for perfect accuracy. I can hit a dime at 30-40 yards and a one inch circle at 50 yards.. Question !! Can you ''''BOYS''' with those fancy compounds Do That ???? I would like to see that !!! GO RAGE.. I always hear people say that don't do well hitting Bone ! Front shoulders !! I say LEARN to shoot deer with a bow first before Hunting !!! Its not a Rifle ''''ITS A BOW''' Your target is the Lungs which is Behind the front shoulder NOT BONE SHOULDERS!!!! Easy its the large brown area of the deer !!! Learn your target before hunting GOOD LUCK with your new toy !!! What make is it ????

A comment titled: tactic in response to a report titled: New Deadly Tactic

lormanbogg , Your young age is showing! I have seen a line of bucks approaching my tree stand with the wind in my face smell the fake scent turn a run!! I know they did not smell me up 20 feet! I long ago stopped using goat pee in a bottle and have had nice bucks in my face!! Natural Pheromones are always key but only during the rut!!!, Scent Timing is key. I hunt management areas and kill nice bucks regularly, In the delta/Sherburne areas I have had herds of deer to pick from, but I hold for the right one!! 10pt or above are my pray, The deer that normally die of old age! before being killed by young inexperienced hunters. Pay attention !!!you may learn something.

A comment titled: deadly tactic in response to a report titled: New Deadly Tactic

I once noticed a hunter in tensas every year kill '''large''' bucks every year, So we all got pie eyed one night so I asked the same question 'what' was his secret weapon! He told me that goat pee in those bottles we buy stopped working years ago,In fact he said the big bucks would avoid the area if they smelled it, He would ask all the 'young' ladies at his office for their used Tampons and he had a ziplock bag of them. He stated he shot everyone of his big bucks with there noise on the tampons, He even said a few of the big bucks stoped looked right at him but walked in anywhy to get a wiff!! All those years and all those big buck fell to the smell. After all its natural feramones those big bucks are looking for!!!!!simple

A comment titled: (Yes) carry permit in response to a report titled: No. 2 Right to bear arms

The way i read it, we already have the law for carry on the books, by opening this law (Yes)~!! they now can be re-written adding new laws to the current standing constitutional carry rights.


I carry and don't want gov. telling me where to carry. as it stands you can't carry it to bars, parades,collages,schools, any city event!!! Our rights are limited as they stand, I'm for NO MORE RESTRICTIONS

more on this should have been discussed L.S.

A comment titled: Port sulfur in response to a report titled: Making another trip to Port Sulfur any reports in the area?

Gib. last week I fished the area two days, Around Four bayou pass was the best if the winds stayed calm, Beaches produced dependent on the winds , Inside the waters were dirty with the large tide movement, It looks as if your tides will be less, I did stop one day by bay sambois and tied into some 22-24 ' trout to finish the day, but then shimpers muddied it up.

Tuesday I caught them every where Friday I couldn't get on any large trout becase the weather and large tide, They should be getting hungry

Good luck

A comment titled: 4 bayou in response to a report titled: From Yesterday

I fish bay Washington, Bay Robin a lot but when you head into the the pass in pipe Bay headed to bay chaland that whole pass has a sand bar in the middle of it covered with 4' of water, I found that along the grass line was the only passable area, but that would run out or turn shallow. There is a new camp half way through that cannel on the right with large boats with deep v's but I think they access it from a side canel, I had my dept finder on and I found no water deeper then 4ft, My 18ft shallow v express bay will scoot through 4-5' of water and I had to get out of the boat and drag it over sand bars, almost got it stuck more then once had motor slapping 3' water while pulling with all I had!!! I worked my way to the pass and motored as far as I could but could find no canel only 4-5' of water till your out in the breakers and if that is high tide, low tide would get scary or force you to motor all the way to the Burus pass or the other way around through bay long. If you go that way be careful and take 'extra fuel' Its to bad I use to motor through there and fish the beaches all the time and when the trout are on the beaches !! it was a great pass to trash the trout!!!

'Port sulfur Camp' Fished Port sulfur & Burus all my life, I would recommend putting in at Delta Marine in Burus under the empire bridge 'Very Nice cement launch, Bait, Food, Ice, Nice restaurant with chief ' Go left from there trough locks to Mississippi river, All the guides use this route ! Ask a Guide from there or GPS your way.

Good luck and tight lines
