I just went on the USGS site and saw that the pearl river water level is at 13.7 feet. Anybody think it will drop enough by Saturday to try and get a few crawfish or am I wasting my time and should look somewhere else?
Anyone else not enjoy the addition of the two new guys from N Louisiana on last weeks show? I like variety, but this is a stretch. Talking only bagging 13',14', or 15' gators. Cmon man. I wish hurricane Isaac hadn't of scratched trapper Joe from the show this year. Oh well, you can't stop mother nature.
This is a shot in the dark. On the way to breton sound marina early this morning my pirogue blew out of my boat. Looked for itwith no luck. If anyone sees it between chalmette and hopedale could you message me, thanks alot everyone.
Hunted on a buddies lease sunday and smoked the birds. Had a problem though. On my third shot, nothing happened. Checked the gun and couldn't believe what I was seeing. The receiver cracked by the firing pin. Had to patiently wait for my buddy to shoot a limit before I got my turn. Frustrating watching ducks come in and your helpless. Pics attached. Can anyone recommend a good gunsmith.... Read More
Can someone get this damn water out of the marsh. It is getting ridiculous. Decoys were drifting, greys were landing in the thousands of small holes. I may need to sell my go devil. A 32 foot gravois with triple 250 outboards could get to where I hunt.
Hunted today with my buddy Johnny on his lease. The fog was thick. Birds didn't fly much this morning. We still got 10 birds and a few coot. We shot pretty good for a change. All greys and a single bluewing.
Had a good bag consisting of greys, teal, and one pintail. Heard someone in the distance doing mallard hen hail calls like he was hunting flooded timber or entering in a duck calling contest,lol. They will eventually learn.
Has anyone had a falcon rod break that they sent back for a replacement? Mine broke right where an eye meets casting. Went on the website and its going to cost $40 to ship it threre and to pay for the shipping back. I only payed $90 for the rod. Almost not worth sending back.
I finally worked on my new duck blind for the second split. I'm halfway done and thought I would post a few pics of it. As Gary Zeringue would say, 'Can I get a deck check with them ducks!' With the help of a couple buddies, we were able to build quicker than I thought. This blind makes fast grass blinds look like red headed step children.
Went hunting friday in the Biloxi WMA. A buddy bailed on me at the last minute so I went solo. I was excited because I knew that front was coming that morning. Man did it turn the ducks on. Shot a limit of greys. Hunted the same spot Saturday and only shot 3 ducks. 1 mottle, 1 grey, and 1 bufflehead. What a difference a day makes. I guess the front pushed the ducks out as quick as they.... Read More
I was searching around on the internet and came across a pretty good do-it-yourself boat blind. The guy goes into very good detail and his boat came out real good. I believe it only cost him $300 to build it. Here is the link...
Decided to go try gigging tonight even with the wind blowing a little. I knew it would be a falling tide in the marsh. It was slow at first, but got a limit of nice flounder up to 3 lbs. Will post pics tomorrow
Did something I hadn't done in years last night. I went gigging for flounder. I would have been happy with a couple. Well i was done at midnight with a limit of 10!. Didn't stick any hogs, but all keeper size fish.
Ok guys, I've been missing way too many ducks the last few years and decided to try and figure out what's wrong. Well I've come to find out I'm right eye dominant and I shoot from the left side. I went to the range today and shot from the right side. Talk about feeling like a one legged duck swimming in circles. I tried with both eyes open and that didnt't feel right so I closed the left eye..... Read More
