  • Nice new pirogue.
Just got my new pirogue this week. It's a Ron Chapman King with 2 spud holes just behind the seat. Got 2 cypress pirogue paddles from the factory too. This boat has 600lb capacity and only weighs 70 lbs. My daughter and I paddled it yesterday in an event called 'Paddle Bayou Lafourche'. We paddled 15 miles. Great boat. We could stand and paddle this boat it's so stable. Nice people at the....  Read More

I just bought a house and the previous home owner left an old aluminum boat. The boat wasn't written into the contract when I got the house and I don't have a bill of sale. The boat is registered but it's for back in 94. I can't get a hold of the previous home owner plus he moved out of state. Is there a way I can claim it as abandoned and get it registered?

If the AKC only recognizes 3 colors of labs (Black, Yellow, and Chocolate.) How are there breeders or whatever the hell they are, claiming they have AKC registered Silver and Charcoal lab puppies.

The answer is.......Those are MUTTS!!!! there is no such thing as a silver lab.

Well, if any of you were heading out yesterday morning and saw someone in a yellow CC trolling along in Bayou LaLoutre, that was me...In case you were wondering 'why is this fool trolling here? there ain't no fish here!' let me clear the air

I was about 3 miles from the launch, and my 225 oceanrunner redlined, and we coasted to a stop. After realizing that I was screwed, I dropped the....  Read More

I am avid user of the Classified section. It's a great resource for buying and selling and I often refer it to people. But, why doesn't the Sportsman do a better job of deleting the BS scams that fill the pages. They are so obvious. It frustrates me that potentially people may be taken advantage of. I personally get tired of seeing the same type of adds just cluttering up the sight...So in....  Read More

Why is LDWF Leaving Money On the Table

Is it any wonder, after reviewing the facts regarding the fees Louisiana charges compared to Mississippi, why Mississippi is the leader of the two states in so many Wildlife Management Areas?

From first hand experiences, Louisiana WMAs, like the PRWMA (Pearl River Wildlife Management Area), have always struggled through low budgets, and....  Read More

Do you think this map would change opinions on the importance of coastal restoration?

Can a houseboat legally be parked in the manchac area and if so who do you pay the lease too? Also could a houseboat be put on the LA side of the Pearl river? Just looking for a place where we could tie up long term and not too expensive. Thanks

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.

I am going to buy my grandson a lifetime license. He is 8 years old. He was born in Ms. but has lived here, in La., since he was 2. I can go up to Quail Drive in BR to apply for it. But what I would like to know is what kind of documentation will I need to get it and how do they accept payment? I'd like to get it on the first trip! Thanks for any help. Tom
