Fishing in Louisiana
Blocked waterways is an ongoing problem that wont go away. Private land ownership has its rights and legally nothing can be done at this point to gain access to these blocked canals. I read where someone had made the comment about ownership of the fish in the waters of Louisiana. Well aren't the fish and other wildlife that live in Louisiana's waters are public property? Since none of these....  Read More

Deer Hunting in Southeast Louisiana

After several years of disappointing Duck Hunting, I've began to deer hunt (try). I have a 2 Arpent wide by several hundred yards long of what I call floating marsh grass. I see plenty of signs of deer along the canal that borders the marsh. I'm 150 pounds and I can barely get through the marsh with out sinking. I have a few questions to ask you fine Gents. Do you think the soft, flooded marsh....  Read More

Fishing in Lafitte in Southeast Louisiana
I am the first to throw darts at companies that don't perform. Garmin just sent me a note that I had to update my map on my GPS. I have windows 10 and for some reason the PC and GPS would not hook up. Called Garmin and in no time had my updates. No waiting on the phone or other BS. I register my products with my Garmin info and when I call they knows all they need to know this is great. ....  Read More

Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in South Central Louisiana
Had a pretty on/off season similar to most folks I spoke to. Started promising with an early 4 man limit opening day and spiraled downward from there. More teal than anything with the occasional grey duck to get excited over. Even managed to squeeze in a spontaneous trip to Oklahoma! Here's a video with a few hunts from our season, hope everyone enjoys.

It was December 31st and my last chance for a deer for 2015. The alarm went off and after spending the past 2 days tracking a friend's deer I was tired. My wife rolled out of bed to duck hunt and couldn't believe I was going to sleep in. After some encouraging words I was convinced 20 minutes later to get up. It was duck hunting Thursday and after having duck hunters under....  Read More

There are many classic examples of why a US citizen should know how to use a firearm, specifically a rifle or pistol. Many point to Switzerland’s statistics, having a well trained populace and a significantly lower number of violent crimes committed and in the USA...

Ran into some guys on a deer hunt that had built there own aluminum boat. They told me that they had the bottom and sides formed by someone and they welded it together themselves. I weld a lot of aluminum and was wanting to try this myself. Ay help on locating who might offer this service would be appreciated. I have attached a picture of the boat they built it is 22'.

Recently I have not been able to navigate this website because some video ads on the right side of my screen have been freezing the screen. It has to be the video ad because it continues to play but I cannot scroll. I tried to refresh the screen, which allows me to scroll until the ad loads, then it freezes the screen. Is anyone else having this problem?

Inshore Fishing in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
Just hoping someone has some good feedback on putting a light bar on my bay boat. My idea is to mount a light bar to a pole where the front pedestal seat goes to enable me to put up and down easily. Run a plug in up front connected to switch on dash as I know they can be blinding to on coming boats. Anyone know how big I would need, I was thinking about a 42inch version? Thanks for any good....  Read More

Captain Paul - GPS Info in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
Hello Capt. Paul

I have been looking into getting a gps. I was reading reviews on the Oregon 650t and the Montana but its seems like some people like and don't like the garmins. What would you recommend? garmin or different brand? Or is there something else I should look into? I will be using it for hunting and fishing. any info will be appreciated.

Thanks you

Garmin is top of the line equipment
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~Cajun Man ~

I have a hand held Garmin that I love. I believe that Garmin has a very user friendly operating system. Their units can deliver an accuracy within 9.8 feet. I have the Garmin GPSMAP 65st because my thick fingers have difficulty using some of the touch screen models.

The trick is to get the model designated with a 't'. The 't' means that it is preloaded with Topographical maps of the U.S. in 1:100.000 scale. In addition, it can be loaded with supplemental Topo maps in 1:24000 scales. This is the same scale at U.S.G.S. topo Quads, and is great for hunting and fishing the coastal marshes. Some units have a 's' model together with the 't' making it as a 's t' model. The 's' indicates sensors. A Compass, and barometer/altimeter and some even an 8 megapixel autofocus, digital zoom camera with flash/torch.

They can also accommodate their Birds Eye aerial mapping as a download by different areas. The 1:24000 and Birds Eye are sold on their web site and at many internet sites at a reduced price. They also have connecting cables which allow you to use the 12 volt power of a vehicle to extend the operating time of the unit.

If you couple one with preloaded topo maps and their free Data Transfer program called BASE CAMP, you can transfer waypoints, tracks, and routes between the GPS unit and a computer. This allows the user to type the waypoints in the computer program and transfer them in bulk into the GPS unit.

That is an unbeatable combination.

Go to a stocking Garmin dealer and get a “hands on” experience with the different models, you won’t be disappointed.

Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
We hadn't been down to Delacroix in about a month, so my buddy and I decided to make an afternoon trip on Sunday. The weather was nice, so we headed out around noon. Getting to the Island we saw an old friend that we hadn't seen in 8 years, standing on side the road, that just got back from fishing crabs. We stopped to talk, and in between the long time no see, and what you been up to, we....  Read More
