I have a 5 gallon gas can almost full of old gas that has outboard oil mixed in it. Its from a couple of my gas tanks that I cleaned out. I just had to rebuild my carb on my 9.9 so I wanted to start with fresh gas. Where can I get rid of this? I know where to bring my oil after I change my oil in my truck, but never had this much gas to discard. I don't want to put it in my weed eater....  Read More

I placed an ad in the classified. Had a user email me that they were from Sacramento ca but on business so wanted to mail me a cashiers check and would have a shipper pick up my pirogue I declined. Said come to my house and hand me cash or no deal. Do they think we are idiots? Who subscribes to LASM in Sacramento ca? Who takes a cashiers check in the mail from someone they don't....  Read More

Other Hunting in Louisiana
A long time ago I saw an ad in LASportsman for an atv(quad) that had marsh buggy type floats with tracks on them. I think it was called an 'Alligator'. Does anyone remember seeing this vehicle? I don't see it anywhere on the web or youtube. Keep in mind I think this as made before the internet and youtube ere mainstream. Any old school LASM writers remember seeing this?

Just got an email from Mr.Vidrine the biologist for the South Farm Complex on Sherburne WMA. The crawfish season will start on March 15th again this year. Thats a Friday. I crawfish in the basin with deep water traps, but I still enjoy going out to the South Farm with some set nets (and a few traps) with my kids and their friends. It's a great place to crawfish with the whole family. It's a....  Read More

  • South Farm crawfish cart
My son doesn't have his drivers license yet, and his buddy doesn't have a truck to haul the atv, so he came up with this set-up to crawfish south farm with tomorrow. Figured I'd share so others without atv's might be inspired to come up with their own alternative to hauling gear 500 yards to the ponds. Check out his net grabber/ paint roller. It almost works as good as my golf ball....  Read More

  • Not too many crabs
Launched out of Basson's this morning and put out a few crab traps on the PAC WMA. Started in the Sulphur Mine and worked my way back toword PAC. No less than 15 boats out all crabbing, nobody fishing. On a Tuesday! No one as catching too much. Managed to scrounge 3 dozen. All the crabs were very full. 50 50 mix of females and males. Really just went to run the catamaran before we....  Read More

My son and his buddy went to South Farm today. Fished 20 nets, and caught 25lbs. He said almost no one else was catching. Said one guy told him that he only caught 40 individual crawfish. I thought it was still a little early yet, as the season usually doesn't open till April 1st. Last few years they've been opening it earlier. In another couple of weeks it should be good. They were....  Read More

  • Current price list
Just went pick up some feed at R.Schexnayder & Sons near Erwinville and took a pic of their price board to share. I buy the product called 'deer block'. Its a gooey block of molasses and corn and rice brand.

Take this advice from a father of 2 hunters. Don't let those pumpkins go to waste. They make great targets. My kids love shooting pumpkins after halloween. Young kids especially need that added fun factor to make learning shooting skills more interesting. The older kids (like me) love to watch them exploded.

  • 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

Deer Hunting in Louisiana
On a recent trip to a south Texas exotic farm, I witnessed large groups of animals being more interested in alfalfa than dry pellets or corn. After seeing this I immediately thought that maybe I could get one of those hay hanging baskets from Tractor Supply, and put it on a tree rather than my usual feeder full of corn. Anyone ever try this?

Events & Announcements in Louisiana
After almost a year the bridge in Ramah to cross the bayou to LA 3000 is finally finished! I was stariting to get tired of it taking an hour to get to my camp rather than 27 minutes. Not to mention the detour to Munson Road was treacherous with all those curves. Just in time for upcoming work days!

Events & Announcements in Louisiana
Just got an email from the biologist Tony Vidrine that's in charge of the South Farm complex on Sherburne WMA saying that the crawfish season will begin on the 15th of March this year. I also asked him if the recent construction of the water control structures would mess up the crawfishing. His reply was that it will help the crawfishing this year. It's probably still too cold, and probably....  Read More

My 9.9 hp mariner's lower unit is toast. Anyone know where to buy another one? The motor runs like a clock, so I'd hate to trash it. Might be time for a new motor. Any comments welcome.

  • 8 point basin buck.
Killed this 8 point in the basin, yesterday, while he was chasing a doe. His 185lb body walked right into a 45/70 round 170 yards from me. Ran maybe 20 yards.

Boats in Louisiana
Anybody got a suggestion for locking a cranking battery on a boat to keep it from being stolen? We got a pontoon boat at our camp that we use to cross our atv's with and we have to take it off and lock it up after each time we use it so it doesn't get stolen. I've been looking on the web and haven't seen anything.

I got a new vehicle that doesn't have tinted windows. I live near Baton Rouge. Anyone ever use a company in this area that they would recommend to tint a new vehicle's windows?

One of my hunting club's members wrote this report on another web site. He is not a member here on LASM, but said it would be OK if I posted it. I read the story and though it was so cool, I wanted to share it: Wow, this one was a hunt to remember. Made it to my camp friday night and hit the bed early. Saturday morning I woke up and waited for the storm to pass. At 6:30 I hit the woods and....  Read More

While LASM was down yesterday I went and checked out the LASM Facebook page. I was really dissapointed at how many negative comments were left on Coon's big tarpon. Stuff like 'fish killer', and 'wannabe', or 'you can't eat it'. I'm not wanting to start a thread like that here, so if it turns into that I will delete it. I started this thread, because I have no other way of....  Read More

Posted this in another thread, but thought it important enough to start a new one. Just left my vet with 2 beagles that were heartworm positive. Both of them have been on heartguard since they were 8 weeks old. Never missed a day. I found out that it is now known that it is possible that the chew style heartguard given whole has a chance that it isn't fully ingested before it is passed....  Read More

Driving from Baton Rouge to Lafayette this morning I saw a lot of dead fish between Ramah and Whiskey bay. Not sure what happened, but if you planned on going in the next few days, I'd make plans elsewhere.

How does the scam report work in the classified? If I see an obvious scam and flag it, what happens after that? I haven't looked at it for a while, and now I remember why. Such a shame. I used to like to look at the classified more than the reports. Seems like a phone number requirement or something........ It's easy to tell the scams, but it takes so long to scroll through them. I sold....  Read More

Thanks LASM. I bought my son a .44 mag H&R when he was younger, and through an ad in the classified I was able to trade it for an H&R 45-70. Worked out great for both parties. The guy had a young son with 2 even younger ones that could really use the .44 mag and my son is a big guy now and will make good use of the 45-70. Score for LASM classified!
