There is pontoon boat listed for $3500.00 that is a scam. We. We're interested and checked it out and e-bay verified it was a scam. The e mails to purchase look very credible. If it looks too good to be true....it probably is !!!

The ROCK PILE
~ Captain Paul's response ~

I don’t have a specific location named “The Rock Pile”, but I do see a jagged bottom rise from a depth of 248 fathoms (1488 feet) to a depth of 69 fathoms (419 feet) on my contour charts of the area. This location is a very prominent rise in the sea bed that is located at or about a position of 28° 32.981’N ~ 89°55.807’W, which is about 14 miles at a bearing of 260° from a platform (28°35.281’N ~ 89°41.898’ W) which is located in WEST DELTA Leased Block 152. This platform is about 27.5 miles at a bearing of 218° from the mouth of South West Pass of the Mississippi River.

The feature I located is in Mississippi Canyon (MC) Leased block 397.

As said, I don’t know if this is the site you are looking for, but it stands out as a large formation. Farther westward the bottom drops to 210 fathoms then has a gradual rise to 41 then to 33 fathoms.

Hope this helps,

Captain Paul

I have a 1648 alumacraft john boat that I am rigging as a duck/fishing boat. The transom has been reinforced with stainless tube struts. Transom wood is being replaced. Not having any experience with a SD type motor, I am curious as to what HP I should be looking for to get the best performance from this rig. I'm not a speed merchant, but do want to be able to run the river and backwaters so it....  Read More

What size boat do we need? I have been looking at 14' and have found both a 14' fiberglass....  Read More

Ever hear of a spot called the propane bowl or propane tank about 70 miles due south of Belle Pass and a few deg to the west? Was talking with a gentleman about a nice grouper hole. If you happen to have info on it, please message me. Would like to find it and give it a shot. Anybody care to share any info on other grouper spots?

The Propane Bowl.
I could NOT find a specific location that is officially called the Propane Bowl south of Belle Pass.

However, there is a double rig structure that is ownen by Matathron Oil called 'LOBSTER' that is 69 miles at a bearing of 179* from the mouth of Belle Pass in the Gulf of Mexico. It is in the Leased Block # 873 of the EWING BANK (EW)Area at or about 28°06.1924’ N ~ 90°12.0454’ W longitude. The site is listed as a 24hr 7 day a week work site and is listed as a 'Collection/Processing Site.' There are numerous under water pipelines that 'feed' the structure from other wells llisted in the area. It is shown on NOAA Chart 1116A Leased Blocks Ms River to Galveston, TX to be in about 120 fathoms of water.

I can't guarantee that this is the location you are looking for. This is a pretty far piece to run on a goose chase if it not correct.

I am still looking, and trying to contact some of my offshore frients to see if they have any additional info.

Any additional info will be posted on this site,

EDGE to Lowrance unit
The safest way is to use the Lowrance data transfer program called INSIGHT PLANNER.

Some GPS unit operating software will let you copy the Lowrance .usb file onto a spare data card and then transfer it into the internal waypoint memory of a unit.

But,you should get Lowrance’s data transfer program they call INSIGHT PLANNER. This program can be found as a “For Sale” item on the Lowrance web site in their mapping section. The program allows you to safely transfer data between a SPARE memory card your computer and your GPS unit. This data program is included in their INSIGHT Mapping programs or as a stand alone as the PLANNER version.

Basically, you save the file to a folder in your computer, open the INSIGHT program and import the file into the program. Once there you can edit the data, add additional, or delete waypoints, routes, and track data.

By using the INSIGHT program, it ensures that the data is in the proper format for the GPS unit. However, depending on the version of the operating software in your unit, you may be able to just copy the .usr or the .gpx file directly to a spare memory card. To test this type of transfer without the Insight program, place a spare memory card in your GPS unit and transfer (save) the waypoints to the memory card. Then, place the card in your card reader and view the file suffix file (.gpx or .usr) on the card. Then copy the corresponding Edge file to your card.

The Edge file has a READ ME and an instruction file in Word format that will assist you in getting the Edge data into your GPS unit.

Contact me if you need any additional information.
