Captain Paul - GPS Info in South Central Louisiana
I fish mostly point au fer area. I have been trying to get a map source that has up to date satellite imagery. Everyone keeps saying platinum plus charts is what I need, but the imagery is from the early 90's and very inaccurate. I have a lowrance elite 5 dsi but will buy any gps necessary to get the imagery I need. Really am liking the lowrance 7 touch.

What is the Best Mappping for the coastal marsh?
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ Blazer Bay Pro~

Unless you go quite a distance off shore where NOAA Marine Charts are needed, I suggest that you look at the Lowrance TOPO INSIGHT and TOPO INSIGHT PRO programs offered by Lowrance.

Theses programs are based on USGS Topographical Maps and not on NOAA Marine Charts. Yes, I know you are in a boat, but topo type maps depict the intricate marsh lands much better than Marine Charts. In addition, you can subscribe to downloads of corrected aerial photo maps of the areas you are interested in. It is a rally versatile program.

But, before laying down money for something that you may not be satisfied with, go to a stocking Lowrance dealer and ask to view the mapping program installed in a GPS unit. Pick an area that you are familiar with and zoom in on the features. That way you can determine if the investment is worth your money. I think it will be.

As for the CAPTAIN PAUL’S FISHING EDGE OF GPS WAYPOINTS, I have an EDGE file for the Dulac area. I think that you will really like the locations that are listed. The file is designed to be electronically downloaded into your GPS unit via a spare memory card. To do the downloads, you will need either the above listed TOPO INSIGHT or their INSIGHT PLANNER. The features of the Planner Version are included in the Topo Insight program.

Check out the INSIGHT program, I am sure that you will be pleased.

The wind slowed up enough for my wife and I to get out front again. The bite was slower this time but the trout we caught were bigger. The water was dirty. The opening night did not get action this time. The big boys fell for the 3 inch tsunami swim bait. The tuxedo color. The light weight one. They all had empty stomachs

  • A beautiful end to the hunt as we paddled back to the boats.
This morning I help out my cousin Barry with his group. It was a little slower today due to the fog, rain, and lack of wind. We still managed a good hunt with two young hunters killing their first ducks and first redhead with a total of 10 on the strap. The moring ended with a beautiful rainbow as we paddled back to the boats. It's not alway about killing limits. Youngster first ducks and pics....  Read More

When I heard a shot from my 14 year old son's deer stand, I knew it was gonna be 'big'. My son, Hayden Harris, has been hunting on his own for years, waiting for his opportunity to bag a big buck. When the 'Big Ten' came out over 200 yds walking away from him, Hayden had seconds to react. Knowing he made a good shot, Hayden watched his bruiser run into the river bottoms of north caddo....  Read More

Just bought a crossbow a barnett raptor fx. Was wanting you use it for hog hunting. Was wondering if anyone knew if this would be a good choice and if there was anything I might would need to do to it to make it better for hog hunting?

I've hunted and had opportunities to kill this season, all in vain. now it seems the only time the deer are traveling through is at night. is there a way to get them moving again in the day time or have I missed my chance this year?

Last Friday, Dec 12, my dad and I were headed back to Laplace from the Bayou Signette boat launch. It was just before dark when a fellow motorists informed us that one of the trailer wheels was smoking. We immediately pulled over at a McDonalds on Hwy 90 near Luling.
We thought that we were prepared to quickly change out the trailer hub with a spare that was already pre-packed with....  Read More

Hopefully I posted this in the right place, I apologize if I did not.

My name is Corey Rico, I am a development producer out of Los Angeles and I am looking to do a show on families that live on houseboats in the southern states.

I would love to find someone that may run a business out of the boat or family trade that they are passing on to their children. I have primarily worked....  Read More
