My lil brother was in Venice this past weekend duck hunting and with the wind and weather this morning (11/8/2015) they decided not to go hunting but he called and told me that the coast guard was out there looking for a boat, duck hunters I'm guessing, that supposedly sunk in the river. If this is true I hope everyone is ok and safe but did anyone hear anything about this or is it just a rumor?
I'm looking for a commerical grade fillet knife. I'm not so much worried about the price because I look at it as the knife will pay for itself with the amout of fillets I catch. This is what I got, I have a number of hoop nets and catch plenty catfish and the knives I bought in the past don't hold up. I tried the original mister twister and that lasted me about a year and I burnt up the motor in it, so then I got the salt water mister twister and that one is going on about a year and a half and the motor on it is starting to go out. I look at the rapala ones but I'm nervous about getting one cause it looks like the replacement blades are hard to find for it. If I have to I will just buy a mister twister every year or so but I was looking for a knife to last me about 3-5 years. I'm cleaning about 500 to 800 fish a year so I would really like to find a decent knife. Thanks.
I was wondering if anyone been doing any good with catching catfish in lac des allemands? I went last weekend and didn't catch a single fish and I wasn't the only one. Everyone I talked to didn't catch also. Hoping we get some warm weather soon and maybe that will help out.
I just got some hoop nets and I was wondering what do ya'll that run nets use for bait and if ya'll have any homemade recipes for making some kind of bait. Any and all help will be great. Thanks
So about a month ago I bought me a new lil 25 Mercury outboard so I can go mess around in the Bonnet Carre Spillway in the evening and catch some fish. Well I decided to take my family out in my new 'toy' and of course my lil shadow was in the boat as soon as she heard the word boat! Well my 2 year old lil girl 'LuLu' is just an outdoors woman already, last year durning teal season she was about 1 1/2 and she would run outside as soon as she heard the truck pull in the drive way and have to come see what we killed and then to my surprise she was holding 2 teal walking around like she killed them. Well, while we were making out trip just riding around looking for turtles and aligators LuLu turned to me and said 'I want to drive' so I proped her on my knee and she was captin! You just don't realize how fast they grow up and how much of an effect you have on them. I hope she carries this on through life and I want to teacher her that we really live in the greatest state there is which is 'Sportsman's Pardise'!
I was wondering if there is someone that does the bottom of a boat coating (Frog Spit, Steel Flex) is there any shops that does this or would I have to apply this myself? Any advice would be great and also let me know how ya'll feel about it, is it worth getting it done, does it really help, ect.? I want to put it on the bottom of my Go-Devil boat (16x38) and I'm running a 18hp long shaft.
Any of ya'll did any good in the PAC this past weekend? We made a hunt and left with one French hen, got buzzed by a few teal but really not a lot of ducks where we were, heard a lot of shooting. So I was just wondering if ya'll did better than we did cause we didn't even see a whole lot of ducks.
Got a quick 3 man limit Friday morning I came home and my 20 month old lil girl loves ducks she said 'dada hold duck' so I figured why not!! This is what's all about can't wait til I can take her!
So what's been the word with the fishing in cocodrie? I'm going out there this weekend and I hope I'll be able to get on the water with this weather coming and try my luck at the reds and specks. I know people been catching the reds but let me know if anyone been doing good at night and just fishing in general.
Where can I buy some deep water A frame crawfish nets???
