It seemed like anybody that had a rod showed up at Beshels in Pointe a La Hache Sat.am It was a great day to fish and I think most people caught a lot of trout. The hard falling tide caught some out plowing marsh. Gustav has made some changes. The reason I'm posting is that the Coast Guard offers a vessel safety check which is free. They inspect your boat and give you a sticker which is good for that year. They will come to you or you can meet them half way. This is a great service. When WLF pulls up and sees that the Feds have checked you they will probably just want to see your fish and you will really learn how to become a safer boater. http://www.safetyseal.net/GetVSC/ is the link to the site. I had my boat inspected Friday by Ken Munson of the Coast Guard Auxilary. I passed and was given some great ideas on how to make my rig even better. He was very reasonable and knowlegable. I highly recommend taking advantage of this opportunity.
