My 1988 mercury 70 hp will crank and start fine, usually as soon as I turn the key. But once it cranks it will idle for 2-3 seconds and dies. Don't know what the problem is. Tried cranking with warm up lever up and it still does the same thing. Tried pumping bulb while after it cranked but still nothing. It was running fine less than a week before this started. Any info/ tips are appreciated.

No reports from the spillway this weekend? I know the river level is right, and judging by the hundreds of boats I saw at Spillway Sportsman's and Dickies on the way to work this weekend I'm surprised not to see any reports...

Its a sad day in Louisiana as I write this. Beloved Lake Ponchartrain that I've grown up on and spent quite a bit of my life is dying so fast its unbelievable. My second favorite area that I've fished, crabbed and trawled for the past 30 years (Bayou Bienvenue)is dying just as fast if not faster than Lake Ponchartrain. U just can't shut water flow off to a tidal area and expect it to.... Read More

Hey Folks,

My family have been lucky enough to get stationed in NO for the next few years (a welcome change after several tours overseas). We are trying to determine where to live. I am from Florida and love to fish inshore, I have a small bay boat that I plan to put to work in Louisiana. I will be working out of the Corps of Engineers Office, which is pretty much downtown.

this piece has appeared ever since you guys ''UPDATED'' the site, it sure makes it a pain to read any of the stories posted, it blocks the beginning of each line at a certain level it does not appear when i am reading reports or ads, is there something i can do to get rid of this or can you guys do something to relocate it???

Inshore Fishing in Fourchon / Grand Isle in Southeast Louisiana
Friend went beach crabbing a week ago on Elmer's and did well. Now I read crabbing is not allowed on Elmer's due to restrictions. Asked friend and they said beach had many people crabbing and wildlife and fisheries was present. Anyone know what the deal is? Can we crab on Elmer's or not?

I'm thinking pretty seriously about getting a kayak soon. I've come to realize that I won't be able to afford a boat for another 5 years probably... (College, life, etc..)

So I'm thinking about getting a kayak by the end of the year. One to duck hunt, inshore fish, offshore/beach fish, possibly freedive or dive from when I go to FL, etc..

I used to have a canoe that I would paddle.... Read More
