I have a Mosseberg 351C .22cal that belonged to my dad. When I got it from my mom it was not functioning. I believe that I have purchased all the small parts that I need to get it back working. I have one part that I am unable to line back up. Is there anyone out there that maybe familiar with this model gun?

Well, I've settled on the boat and dealer I will buy from. Now my question is decking. I'm looking for opinions regarding vinyl vs. carpet.
All input is appreciated. Thank you all in advance.

If anyone finds or know of someone who has found a Hoyt carbon matrix please contact Scott Dupre at (337)578-1883 it would be greatly appreciated. The bow was in a grey pro 44 case. This morning on 1-20-15 my dad and I were returning from a morning bow hunt and it flew out of the boat onto the hwy. We travelled north on Hwy 317 from burns point onto hwy 90 then travelled west to Baldwin. Thanks....  Read More

  • This is the type of extrusion I am looking for or an equivalent.
I know there area a lot of guys building basic aluminum flat bottom skiffs and I was wondering if had any tips they would like to share as to how to join the bottom piece with the sides.
I plan to make one using 1/8' bottom and join it to a .100' side.
In the NW they have pre-made corner extrusions that accept 1/8' sheet aluminum but I can't find the right....  Read More

I'm looking for some input on new aluminum hull bass boats and dealers in the Lafayette area.
I really like the Express HD boats and the Bass Tracker 190TX.

Any feedback on how good or bad the detail is for our area on the new Garmin BlueChart g2 Vision Map?

Its a bit pricey and I don't want to commit another $300 on top of what I already spent for a new GPS. The current base maps just stink. For example, it doesn't even show the Spoil Canal next to the MRGO.

Capt Paul,

I just bought your edge file for big lake. I keep my boat an hour away at a marina. I want to come prepared with exactly what I need to install the edge file.

Do you suggest a data card or is it possible to hook my garmin up to my computer?

Thanks for the help!

EDGE for A Garmin GPS unit
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ WhoDat08 ~

Here are some suggestions.

Yes there is a Garmin cable with both power and data link, but the data end of the cable does not have any type of connection. You would have to have a person who is computer savvy to place a connection that is compatible with one of the different ports on your PC.

That unit is meant to communicate with a computer via a SPARE DATA CARD. A spare SD card is the way to go.

First download the FREE Garmin data transfer program they call BASE CAMP from their web site and install it in your computer.

This will allow you to have the ability to transfer data to and from the GPS unit and your computer via the spare data card.

With saying that there is another task you will have to do. You MUST first place the data card in your GPS unit with the unit off, then turn it on and do any function. This writes a code on the spare card that lets Base Camp and later the same GPS unit communicate with the card. Of course you would also need the EDGE File that ends in .gdb and .gpx. This file is the actual data file.

So, you will have to first visit your boat and access the GPS. If you have a lap top PC, you can bring it with you as long as it has a card reader-writer and has the Base camp installed.

If not then you would have to visit your boat, install the SD card then use it in your PC.

Before you go, print out the Acrobat .pdf file and the spreadsheet file. Bring them on board in a plastic zip lock type bag.

I don’t have the coordinates in my files, but I am working on getting the location.

If you get them before I do, please give them to me.

Thanks,

So while I was coming in from duck hunting this morning the motor stopped peeing. I shut it down and paddled to shore. I ran a wire through the outlet line and intake holes on the bottom are clear. It'll spit a little bit of water but not a steady stream. Is the water pump going bad or is there anything else that would cause this to happen? Thanks in advance for the advice!

I am looking for someone reputable to install a mud boat engine for me. The promblem I am having is that it isn't an easily searchable service. I have a 16' Boats by Kirk hull and a 40 hp Kohler engine, and I'm looking to get the Kohler installed ASAP. I will also need a strut made and some metal work done to tie in the frame to the motor. I have called Boats by Kirk and he is booked until....  Read More

MAPPING FOR AN ELITE unit.
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~Justin L. ~

I suggest that you look at the Lowrance TOPO INSIGHT and TOPO INSIGHT PRO programs offered by Lowrance.

Theses programs are based on USGS Topographical Maps and not on NOAA Marine Charts. Yes, I know you are in a boat, but tope type maps depict the intricate marsh lands much better than Marine Charts. In addition, you can subscribe to downloads of corrected aerial photo maps of the areas you are interested in.

But, before laying down money for something that you may not be satisfied with, go to a stocking Lowrance dealer and ask to view the mapping program installed in a GPS unit. Pick an area that you are familiar with and zoom in on the features. That way you can determine if the investment is worth your money. I think it will be.

As for the CAPTAIN PAUL’S FISHING EDGE OF GPS WAYPOINTS, I have an EDGE file for the Dulac area. I think that you will really like the locations that are listed. The file is designed to be electronically downloaded into your GPS unit via a spare memory card. To do the downloads, you will need either the above listed TOPO INSIGHT or their INSIGHT PLANNER. The features of the Planner Version are included in the Topo Insight program.

Check out the INSIGHT program, I am sure that you will be pleased.

EDGE for your GPS unit
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ Mike the Tigre ~

The CAPTAIN PAUL’S FISHING EDGE OF GPS WAYPOINTS programs are positions (waypoints) that are written in a computer language that is recognized by the various GPS consumer systems. These waypoints are designed to give you an “Edge” on getting to and fishing various fishing areas in the coastal marshes. They are sold exclusively as a download from the Louisiana Sportsman’s OUTDOOR STORE. They are lat~long positions that can be transferred into your GPS unit.

In order to transfer the data from the download into your GPS unit, you will need the data transfer program offered by the manufactures. Lowrance offers their INSIGHT PLANNER on their web site (www.lowrance.com) as a “For Sale” download. The Insight Planner allows you to exchange tracks, waypoints, and routes between your PC and your GPS unit via a spare memory card.

The data is transferred in computer language that your GPS will understand. All of the positions are transferred as overlays to what ever mapping program you may have installed in your GPS unit. After the installation, the waypoints will show up in an index and as named positions on the maps.

It is necessary that you specify your correct GPS system as the waypoint language is generally not the same for difference unit brands.

The Edge consists of mainly fishing locations supplemented by key intersections of canals and other navigation points.

It IS NOT A MAP that can be installed in your GPS unit.

I fish mostly point au fer area. I have been trying to get a map source that has up to date satellite imagery. Everyone keeps saying platinum plus charts is what I need, but the imagery is from the early 90's and very inaccurate. I have a lowrance elite 5 dsi but will buy any gps necessary to get the imagery I need. Really am liking the lowrance 7 touch.

What is the Best Mappping for the coastal marsh?
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ Blazer Bay Pro~

Unless you go quite a distance off shore where NOAA Marine Charts are needed, I suggest that you look at the Lowrance TOPO INSIGHT and TOPO INSIGHT PRO programs offered by Lowrance.

Theses programs are based on USGS Topographical Maps and not on NOAA Marine Charts. Yes, I know you are in a boat, but topo type maps depict the intricate marsh lands much better than Marine Charts. In addition, you can subscribe to downloads of corrected aerial photo maps of the areas you are interested in. It is a rally versatile program.

But, before laying down money for something that you may not be satisfied with, go to a stocking Lowrance dealer and ask to view the mapping program installed in a GPS unit. Pick an area that you are familiar with and zoom in on the features. That way you can determine if the investment is worth your money. I think it will be.
