I have a Garmin 192c gps that is showing signs of dying and I want to copy my routes and way points to my PC before my gps goes out. As I understand it I will need to copy my data from my gps to a data card then load that on to my PC. I have the data card reader but don't have an extra card and Garmin does not sell them any longer. I have been searching the net for hours trying to find a card with no luck.

Do I have any other options for making this data transfer?

Do you know of anyone who has a card that would fit my unit that I could either buy or borrow? After I make my data transfer I will not need the card any longer.

By the way, I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your articles each month in LA Sportsman's. Your articles are the first I read each month. I appreciate all of the information you provide us each month. Keep up the good work.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hey guys,
I have a Garmin 192C gps that is beginning to show signs of dying and I need to copy my tracks and waypoints while unit still has some life left in it. I called Garmin and naturally they don't make that card any longer. I have spent hours looking on the web for either a Garmin card or an after market card that will work in my Garmin gps. Have had zero luck.

Now I am at the point of almost begging for someone to help me locate a data card that will fit my gps. Size doesn't matter since the data does not take up a lot of room on a card. If anyone has a card that will fit my gps I would really like to either buy or borrow it. Once I get the data onto my PC I won't need the card any longer.

Thanks for your help.

Hey guys,
We live in the northern part of the state and we fish out of Cocodrie several times each year. We stay at Cocodrie but do most of our fishing in the Dulac area. We only fish for reds. We need a place that is close to Cocodrie where we can fish for just a few hours in the mornings before we head back north after our trip. I have heard comments about the fishing for reds being good in Lake Boudreaux. We are looking for advice on how to fish that area and some places to get started.

Any advice you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

My wife and I will be fishing in the Dulac area late this week. I had read one report, from that area, that said the water was really low. Can someone confirm that information? I have never fished the marsh at this time of the year but have heard that the water gets really low in Dec. and Jan. but have never heard of it being a problem in October. Don't want to get in the ponds and not be able to get out.

If anyone can offer some advice it would be greatly appreciated.

I will be headed down to Cocodrie, from Shreveport, later this week. Have been unable to locate any ethanol free gas in our area. I believe my best bets would be in either Lafayette or Houma.

Can anyone recommend someplace I can buy ethanol free gas?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have just started fishing Big Lake and need some help with tides. I have only been able to find two tide station, one in Lake Charles and one at the light house, which I assume is near the jetties. I fish between Spicer's and Hackberry. Which tide station should I be looking at and how do I adjust it for the areas I am fishing?

Thanks for the help.

Capt Elton,
I appreciate the tide tutoring. I hope your season finishes up strong.

Capt. Elton

I appreciate your advice but have a question about your comment that 'if you can get in you can get out'. Since the high tide will be at mid morning I was afraid that I would have enough water to get to the ponds but when the tide started to fall the water might be too low to get out. Is my thinking wrong?

Again, I appreciate your advice.

Thanks for the input. The configuration I am looking for is a gps and fish finder on the dash and a fish finder on the bow. I had originally intended to go with a gps/fish finder combo on the dash and had looked hard at the garmin 198c. What I don't like the combo units is the small screen you end up with when you split the screen between the gps and the fish finder when you want to use both functions such as when you are running.

Hope your life is settling down some after the storms. I still want to bring my wife down for a trip with you sometime after tax season is over. Do you think you will be moving your operations back to Buras?
