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

I have a couple of spinning reels that I use for trout that I am going to take the mono off and put braid on. I would like some opinions on what lb. to use , your suggestion of the brand, and do I need to do anything different when using it to fish a plastic under a cork. Thanks for any advice as I have only used it once on a baitcaster and was overwhelmed with backlashes! Good luck.

I had heard that Ascension Parish had bought the boat landing that accesses the Maurepas swamp off of hwy. 22. It had a barroom next to it. Is it now public and open? It's a couple of miles east of the Airline. Thanks.

I just passed this launch yesterday and noticed how it was on a very long straight stretch of highway with relatively low traffic volume.

Sheriff dept. did good catching him.

Looking at a buying a new trolling motor. Looked at the Minn Kota Edge reviews at Bass Pro; not real good, 3/5.

Anyone own one of these and had problems? Thanks for any feedback.

I know there has been much discussion about motorguide and minn kota and which is the best. I am trying to make a decision between the MG tour and the MK maxxum. Both have a two year warranty and I would like to know what Warranty issues anyone has experienced (+ and -). Such as 'that's not covered', long waits for repair, repetitive parts failure, etc. with each brand. That may help me decide.... Read More

Is there a public launch for the Cheramie area near Grassy lake on the east side near Labadieville? Looking for a shorter boat ride without going to Attakapas or to Doiron's on the west side. Thanks for any help.

Events & Announcements in Louisiana
I know plenty of you go up Hwy. 19 to Centreville and Woodville to your camp or lease, as I do. While I was up there the other day I visited with a friend who lives near Centreville. He told me that his daughter was recently traveling through Wilson to her job in Zachary when she was stopped and was given a speeding ticket. She was doing 46 in a 45. When she questioned the Wilson cop about it.... Read More

I saw there is a new service station on Hwy 3235 near Golden Meadow. Saw some boats filling up. Does anyone know if they sell non-ethanol gas?

Thanks for any information.

Guns in Outside Louisiana
I saw where there is a gunshow in Natchez this coming weekend. I'll be at my place in Woodville, and may run up there to it. I was wondering if being a La. resident would prevent me from buying a firearm from a Ms dealer at the show? Thanks for any help. Good luck.

About 3 months ago I purchased the 2011 Bushnell Trophy Cam. It's taking good pictures and I have no problems with it. However, I am about to purchase another camera and I'm thinking about getting another of the Bushnell's. I'm curious if anyone has a 2011 BTC and has had problems with it? Thanks.

Heard three birds gobbling this morning as the daylight broke through the fog in Centreville. Sat. should be good if the wind isn't bad.

  • John L. trip
My wife, son Casey, and myself made a trip with Captain John L. Taylor out of Joshua's this morning. We easily caught a respectable mess of reds and black drum before the humidity slowed us down. John made the trip highly pleasant. Can't wait to make another.
