I want to take the kids Snow skiing on a budget for Mardi Gras week. Does anyone have any suggestions? Driving then hotel or pulling our camper are our options. It looks to me like the Chattanooga area (Roughly 10 hr drive) is my closest Baton Rouge option. Any ideas of places or resorts are appreciated.
Still trying to figure out this kayak fishing thing since I yakked up last summer and, if there's one thing I know, I'm wondering if y'all know of some cold weather hotspots in the marsh for specks and reds.
We've had this buck on camera for 3 years now. Last year, my uncle shot him as an 8 point and after tracking him over 3 miles, was unable to recover him. Assuming the deer was gone for good, it was to our surprise to see him again this spring with an injured knee joint in his leg. Fortunately, this buck that we nicknamed 'Lucky Charm' stayed around throughout the summer and grew another two....
Anybody here ever catch a White Catfish? I'm not referring to a albino channel cat, or blue cat.
These fish are actually a smaller bluish gray type catfish. Supposedly they are present in the Mississippi River, and some of it's tributaries.
They appear similar to channel catfish, but have a rather BIG head in proportion to their body. They also share similar, but different....
I ran a couple of days out of Cocodrie for Top Water and it was game on from the start each day. The cold weather had the reds stacked up in deep holes so that make for easy pickings with either dead shrimp or Black/Gold Ripple shad from Berkley. Under a cork or tight lined didn't make a difference on the catch. The reds made it easy to find them as they were blowing up the pot belly minnows on....
Day two with Chip Spurlock and Ben Winter and crew was better than day one!! It took us 15 minutes longer than yesterday to put our limits of reds into the K2 (7:45 am)!! Then the K2 turned silver!!! The trout turned on and ate up our Green Hornet Matrix Shad tight lined and Shrimp Creole under a cork. What a incredible two days these guys had catching right at 300 fish. They are headed....
Day 2 with Chip and Adam. Frost everywhere this morning which made for a cool ride on the Bluewave this morning. Still it was warmer than yesterday so we weren't complaining. We started off chunking the Green Hornet Matrix Shad and the first 3 fish in the K2 were trout so I thought it might be a trout day even though the water temp was 49 degrees. I was fooled for a bit because we found the....
Does anybody know if they have the bridge on the North Tract of Richard K Yancey WMA fixed yet. Last year it was out (ATV only) so the other side of the WMA was hard to access from the North Camp Ground (Vidalia side). Thanks for any help.
