Ed, please don't attempt to pay your 2016 fishing club dues after treating these people as you did. That is totally unacceptable. I could say much more.

Want to see some huge Garfish lurking just below the surface where you would not think they would be? Well, my friend and neighbor, Ray at Bridge Side RV's community will be on Paradise Louisiana TV show. They will film this week. Just don't know when on TV. His recent landings are well over 100 pounds and many of them.

With all the good things you hear about the 4 strokes, here's something to keep in mind. Long story made short, it is next to impossible to rope start an F 115 4 stroke due to high compression. Deep in the marsh, I finally was able to do a 1 rope turn on the exposed flywheel and reach over to the key switch and do a pull and turn and she fired up after four attempts. The 2 strokes were easy to rope start.

To whom it may concern:
A quest at our fishing club meeting(new owner of Bason's boat launch down West 107th. in Cut Off La.)gave an update on future plans for the launch. He stated that rumors were that a $400.00 yearly fee would be required to use the facility were just that, rumors. The existing $5.00 fee would remain. Also, upgrades have already begun. Sure hope that's the case...

Capt. Hi, love your presence on the site. Should I expect the same quality map on my 421s as I'am getting on my 541s? They are not the same and everything I am reading they should be...

April 07, 2013 at 8:20pm

Need help! I purchased a garmin gps/sonar 541s map and like it very much, it's for my 23' boat. I also purchased a Garmin 421s map for my 18' hull. They look identical except actual size. My problem is the 421s map is nowhere near the quality of the 541s. Everything I read, they are supposed to be the same except size. Would appreciate feed back... thx.

April 07, 2013 at 7:41pm

I have for sale a 12' alum. hull, matching trailer and an 8 h.p. Mariner all in perfect shape. The engine looks like it was bought yesterday and has less than 10 hours on it. Sale price is $1200.00. # 985-278-1318.

Ed probably has his side of the story. After reading Lesliemg's comments about the charter, I was probably too quick on my comments. Sorry Ed.

A comment titled: Vibro in response to a report titled: vibrio virus???

Friend in hospital now with Vibro. Contacted this past weekend on Grand Isle while picking up crab cage and got scratched from a broken wire. Swelling started on hand then moved upward very quickly. Hoping doctors caught it in time.

Hi again Michael, Yep, I remember the My Witch. Boy, were those good croakers back then, big and slimy to get those long gone 6,7, and 8 pounders. Terry and I talked a little about you 4th. of July weekend. Don't worry all good, LOL...

A comment titled: partnership in response to a report titled: no partnership

Well, I was doing all the maintenance, all the legal stuff and when I sold my camp I offered to sell him my half of the boat but he felt like he should have the boat. I sold the boat and gave him half. Things have never been the same.

A comment titled: trailer bearings in response to a report titled: bearings on utility trailer

I guess it depends on how well the rear seal does it's job. I probably over grease by pumping up every other fishing trip. One thing I do now is to look at the spring to see if it's compressed or extended on the stainless or chrome plated types. Caution though, sometimes the moving inner part that the spring works against gets stuck in the full position and the rear bearing will run dry. It happened to me and one of my wheels completely fell off at the marina and floated away.

A comment titled: f-150/camper in response to a report titled: Ford f 150

'the ploan', Two wheel drive or 4 wheel, it makes a difference, so says the camper sales people. They say the 2 wheeler can handle more weight. I think you're ok. I had an f-150 4 wheel drive with the 5.4 and a 9000 # bumper pull camper and I would say that truck was at it's limit. Only problem with that one was the Luling bridge, 40 mph and 3000 RPM. I have since upgraded to an f-250 Power Stroke turbo diesel and it doesn't even downshift. Have fun with the f-150 it should ok at 6000#.

A comment titled: Sea Tow in response to a report titled: F 115 four stroke

I will try to top off the towing discussion with a little funny thing. Many years ago during a Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo, I was towing a boat in with forward gear problems when my engine started running hot. We swapped towing positions coming into the weigh in with the other boater towing me in reverse gear.
Ok, it's not a fishing report anymore, I'am gone..

A comment titled: SEA TOW in response to a report titled: F 115 four stroke

Secret, no I'am not and I do understand the value of being a member to most fisherman however, inshore, I have emergency help available if needed. Offshore, I usually have another boat friend not far away. Well, it's been working that way for the last 40 yrs. Thanks...

A comment titled: F115 four stroke in response to a report titled: F 115 four stroke

Thanks for the comments guys. My point was to create awareness that you can't rope start an F 115 four stroke with whatever the cause may be. My problem turned out to be a defective starter. Good and safe fishing to all...

Hey Caminitab, sounds like you're thinking Clovelly boat launch. Not that one, I'am talking about the one accessible from the La. 3235 4-lane hi-way. Then take West 107th. street.

I tried the cast net at the light thing and threw away my cast net (cheap one) due to 500 baby catfish in it. So, spent $15.00 for 50 croaker...
