Took the family out to the miss. river to do some cat fishing with rod and reels.My wife caught the biggest of the day that weighed in at 61 lbs. My caught one at 28 lbs. We ended up with 11 fish on rod and reels this morning.Fall is in the air. What a great way to spend a day with the family.

Headed down to leeville/fourchon this weekend to try the fish.I know the tide range is not great but this the only time i can come down to fish. Anybody have any reports or input on what it going on.The last time i was down the fish seemed to b on the beech and the islands.Anybody else going?

Ok call me dumb but just found out the state record appears to be 110 lbs for a blue cat. I caught this one with my friend Jason on a trot line. We weighed it on a pair of deer scales (Not official) but it was 115lbs. Just found out today I might have gave away the state record to my friend to eat. He was caught in the back water of the miss. river.Just my luck never thought it might b a state record

look up transducer savers and shields. They make a spring loaded device that you mount on the boat and then put the transducer on it. If not you will break it off like I did. I would try the red circle first and see.

I am a pilot and mechanic on planes. That reading that this plane is not certified faa safe means that the aircraft is in the experimental class aircraft. This is very common in aerobatic aircraft. This allows the planes to be modified to make them perform better. They do still have to be inspected and be airworthy. Very sad that this happened. I never met him before and all ways wanted to make a trip with him because me and my wife fly everywhere.

Yep trolling motor plugs are pain. Glad you got it fixed

July 25, 2017 at 12:24pm

Most boats have two separate powers. One is for the trolling motor and the other is for the outboard. First check both batteries for power. Most things run off the motor cranking battery. If you have power 12 volts, Make sure the gear shift is in neutral. I know that sounds nuts but I have seen it moved while working on the boat. There should b two big cables on the outboard battery that goes to the motor, you can take off the cowling and see that two big cables should go to the relay. Check for the volts there 12 volts. If no volts there chase the wires from the battery it will go to a fuse or cb. For the trolling motor not working that is on a separate battery ! Two big wires on that battery go straight to the trolling motor. Check volts at trolling motor connection, usually its the connection. If it has volts there it is in the trolling motor. Some times they put a big fuse on the battery its self, then straight to the trolling motor.

A comment titled: fish in response to a report titled: Catfishing

fish that size are ok to eat but the 10lb to 20lb seems to b the best eating size for me. If you clean all the red meat of and just have good clean white meat its good. My set up is a 3 to 4 oz weight and two 5/0 hooks. I use 200lb mono to make my leaders with. Like you do for offshore fishing. Find where it goes from 20 ft to about 60 or 70 feet and fish the area around 30 to 45 feet deep. With the river low as it is now.You have to look for some deep holes.They have not been in the deepest parts but on drop off about 40ft deep.
