A buddy of mine got pictures of what appears to be a giant squirrel from one of his feeders at his Mississippi lease last weekend. I've hunted all of my life and have never seen one close to this size. The pictures come straight off of his camera's memory card and have not been altered in any way, shape, or form. He says the the bottom of his feeder is about 3 foot from the ground. Has anyone else ever seen one this big, or know of a different species of squirrel that grows larger than others? I attached a couple of other pictures of give some contrast, Let us know what you think !!
Oilman's rodeo this weekend in Cocodrie. According to the weather its supposed to be nasty this weekend. Anyone else out there planning on fishing it ?
Appreciate all the comments, believers or not. But, let me assure all of you that my buddy is not nearly computer literate enough to Photoshop or alter these pictures in any way. You can clearly see in some of the pics that he is behind the feeder legs. For the ones who noticed the white around the feeder legs, those are tack strips that are tie wrapped onto the legs to keep the coons off of the feeder. Here are a few more pics of this creature. He is actually going back to his camp this weekend, just to try and kill this monster.
Check these out.
Here is the pic of the deer that she killed in Chauvin La.
The land in Cocodrie is definitley alot lower than in Chauvin. I live behind the Chauvin Mini-Mart and I'm 10 Ft. above sea level. My house is actually for sale if you're interested. The Red Fishing in Lake Boudreaux is on fire right now and the speckled trout fishing turns on in the winter time when the trout come in to spawn. I've personally never fished for bass there, but I have heard of people catching them in the upper Bayou Chauvin area. Hope this helps!
Looks like yours on the left, classic military camo paint job.
The Boudreaux Canal bridge is the only functional brige that you cross heading to Cocodrie. It was working last night around 5:30 when we came back from trawling at the camp.I haven't heard anything about it being closed today.

Looks closed to me.
Mix lemon juice and peroxide 50/50 in a squirt bottle. It'll also take off the brown stains on the outside of a fiberglass boat.
BP has pretty much taken over Cocodrie. I dont know for sure, but if I had to guess I'd say that BP has the Sandpiper rented out along with every other motel or camp down there.

I grew up and fishing out of Montegut my entire life. Unforunatley Mr. Roland has always been a D***. The next time you want to launch your boat down there, pass up the marina and drive about another 2 miles down the road and theres a free launch. Theres nothing he hates more than to see someone pull up in their boat to buy bait or groceries and tell him they launched at the free launch.
Sounds like you fellas have been fishing in my honey hole in the marsh north of Lake Boudreaux. I was out there Saturday,if you saw 2 guys riding around in a Gator Tail throwing a 30 Ft. rooster tail that was probably me. Anyways, we caught our limit of reds in about 20 minutes, then played catch a release for another hour before going play in the mud. Dont ever believe anyone if they say the water is going to be muddy in Lake Boudreaux. If you go far enough into the marsh, the water is always crystal clear.
Lake Boudreaux has started to show signs of the specks moving in. We've been catching them in the canals above Boudreaux more than the lake. If you're familiar with the T-Lock, Bayou Nouef, and Bayou Chauvin areas, try those. The redfish are in the canals, on a falling tide try spots where the marsh is emptying into the bayou. Good luck!
I switched from a 35 long tail to my 35 Gator Tail w/ Instant reverse on a 1756 a few years back and its the best move I ever made. My boat is center console and I still go through more and carry more of a load than I used to with that go devil. As far as the other surface drives go, they're all too much work as far as the reverse and trim. And as far as customer service goes, Kyle and Hoyt and their gang cant be beat. They'll take you out to test drive boats to make sure you get exactly what you want. GTR all the way for me.
Throw them in a cast iron pot with 5 Lb's of onions and let them cook down. Serve over rice, guaranteed to make you wanna slap your momma !
I've never tried it personally, but it think catfish filets would fall apart in a boil. A few things I've tried as far as proteins is Mickey Browns Hot Tamale's, Hot Dogs,Deer Sausage, Whole Chickens,Eggs, Cocktail Weenies, and Oysters in the shell. They all came out good. Good Luck!
When you come out of the main bayou from the ashland launch, follow the left bank to the Chauvin side of Boudreaux. You'll see the tank battery and the canal leading you to Bayou Chauvin,the first bayou to your left, where you'll find the "T-Lock". If you're looking for redfish, I would stay straight and head toward the levee. I bowfish that area a lot, always with good results.
Careful with that alumabright, although it does take the stain off, it will eat your trailor right out from under your boat.
The cheapest way I've found is a toilet bowl cleaner from any local Dollar Store called "The Works". It takes it off as fast as you can spray it on. If you can get to a Dollar Store, mix any 100% pure orange juice with peroxide in a squirt bottle, cleans the yellow stain off and leaves your boat with a nice citrus smell.
