Hunting in Louisiana
We are spending a lot of money on the bear population when they are populating to casual sightings but yet, we have a seriouse problem with the hogs . They are getting way out of hand.. Why don't we put a bounty on the hogs like they did with the nutria. The hogs are pushing a lot of deer out and are multiplying faster than we are killing them !! At this rate, lousiana will be the hogs paridise!

Kayak Fishing in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
Fished Bayou Lacombe last Sunday and actually caught fish with the camera rolling. Usually the camera means I won't catch anything. All fish caught on a mirrolure twitch-bait and Matrix Shad. You may see them in the video.

A friend of mine bestowed upon me an 80 lb thrust saltwater minn kota trolling motor which he believes the shaft has frozen up. I figured i would take it and see if i could get it fixed. Does anyone know of a good trolling motor repairman?
thanks!

Nightmares After checking the game cameras this weekend, I have a new respect when walking to my stands in the dark. Last week was my first encounter with a black bear in the wild and this week itís a huge alligator and adult male bear that are visiting my stand frequently. It was amazing to see an alligator in the middle of the woods with water a ľ of a mile away from my stand location. My son....  Read More

Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Holly Beach in Southwest Louisiana
I want to give some praise to Mr. Larry Reynolds and others who through feedback from hunters pushed back the coastal zone big duck opener to 11/15/14. I have read recent DU reports from Minnesota in particular that seem to now justify this move to push back our opener a week. The northern tier states indicate a noticeable delayed migration so far in their hunting seasons. Everything seems a....  Read More

How to transfer the EDGE file to your GPS
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ Dcpp74 ~

After you complete the installation of the Garmin Home Port program, you then find the folder where you placed the LOUISIANA SPORTSMAN, CAPTAIN PAULíS FISHING EDGE OF GPS WAYPOINTS.

That location is determined by you when you purchased the Edge program.

It may be on your Desk Top or in some other file in the Documents folder. Check it out. Then open the Home Port program and first click on the Library link and a drop down window will appear indicating the various folders in the Home Port Library.

Then click on the FILE button at the top left corner of the Home Port screen. A drop down window will appear. Click on the Import into New Folder. That drop window have a top box marked LOOK IN: Click on the arrow pointing down and a list of the files on your computer will appear. Select the folder of location where you put the EDGE file that you got from the Sportsman, then click on the .gpx or .gdb file and the program will transfer the data in to the folder in your Home Port program. Once there, click on the folder and all of the Edge waypoint will appear in the map in the Home Port program.

Once there, you can add to, delete, or edit any of these waypoints.

Then place the memory card for you GPS unit in the card reader of your computer. Once there select the EXPORT button in the Home Port program and transfer the data to a spare SD memory card to the GPS unit.

Sometime, you have to place the spare card in the card slot in the unit and turn the unit on and do any function on the screen of the GPS unit. This causes the unit to write a code to the spare card that will be recognized by the Home Port and after the transfer to the card by the GPS unit again.

Give me a call at 985-847-0536 if you need any additional help.

Keep Safe,

Captain Paul

  • Nice new pirogue.
Just got my new pirogue this week. It's a Ron Chapman King with 2 spud holes just behind the seat. Got 2 cypress pirogue paddles from the factory too. This boat has 600lb capacity and only weighs 70 lbs. My daughter and I paddled it yesterday in an event called 'Paddle Bayou Lafourche'. We paddled 15 miles. Great boat. We could stand and paddle this boat it's so stable. Nice people at the....  Read More

I need some help finding another place to launch from for the MS River. We have been launching in Baton Rouge from the public ramp near the I-10 bridge but that ramp scares the heck out of my wife and she's the one piloting the boat when we launch. She says the water is to swift there, any suggestions would be a huge help.
I have had no luck finding this information online and we want to go....  Read More
