I need opinions on how much it would cost to have a 7200sf 'L' Shaped house pad that needs to be 4 feet high, would cost to install in the North Holden area. I need the cost if dirt is hauled in..or if dirt is dug from adjoining land 100 feet away can be used. Want to start the job immediately. I can be reached at 225-252-0503 if you would rather respond there. Thank you.
Hey guys...i have a few reels that need minor repair-cleaning. They are newer reels and not worn out. Shimano Calais, Curado, Calcutta and Castiac.
Who do you guys recommend in the Baton Rouge- Denham Springs area that can have them ready in a week or two. Thanks for any info !
While fishing a stretch of piers across from the public landing in New Roads, i came across 4 camps with nets strung across their piers out where the water gets 5-6 foot deep. One was fairly new and the others were old, but intact and had caught a nice size bass that had rotted to the skeleton among other debris. It was sad to see and makes me want to know the law concerning using...and more importantly abusing the right to use nets. Looked like they were being used to hurt bass fishermen rather than for catching dinner.
Any info whether fact or opinion is appreciated.
Thanks and if you want your opinion private, emial me at LSUBEST1@cox.net.

Did You Know That Gar Eggs Make You Sick?
A few of you may have eaten gar balls (which are not as gross as they sound). But a family in Arkansas recently found out the hard way that cooking up a batch of gar eggs isn't quite so appetizing. In fact, it can be downright dangerous.
From the AP story:
HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. -- Take it from Darwin Aaron and his family in Cleburne County: gar eggs are poisonous. Tiffany Aaron said her husband, Darwin, and brother-in-law, Russell Aaron, took a long-nosed gar while spearfishing at Greers Ferry Lake on April 5. Gar meat is edible, so they figured they'd try the roe. They prepared the eggs that evening, with Darwin and Russell Aaron eating some, along with Darwin and Tiffany's 10-year-old son, Carson. Carson was the first to start vomiting at about 1:30 a.m. Russell and Darwin soon were sick, too. Tiffany Aaron looked online and read that gar eggs are poisonous. All three family members recovered after a few days. The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said eggs from all gar species are highly toxic.
I must confess that even though I've never had the desire to try, I had no idea gar eggs were toxic. Anyone ever get sick from eating gar eggs?

Wow! We made the Field & Stream blog! Woohoo!
This is Darwin's wife and I was thrilled to find this blog post. Finally someone that didn't make us feel like total idiots. :)
To answer your questions, we live a few miles from Greers Ferry Lake. My husband is an avid spearfisherman and was anxious to get a jump start on the season. He wasn't at the lake specifically looking for gar. It just so happened that the first thing to present itself was the unfortunate gar. The guys had been told that gar was tasty and they were curious to try it. As they started cleaning the fish they discovered the eggs and decided to fry a few up just for the heck of it. My son also tried some and was the first to get sick. A couple of hours later my brother in law started vomiting and nearly 10 hours after consumption my husband got sick. It was pretty obvious that the roe had made them sick since nobody else had eaten any.
I immediately got online and (thanks to Google) found that gar eggs are highly toxic to humans. I called our family doctor and they recommended that I take them to the ER. I called poison control and they had never heard of such a thing at poisonous fish eggs. I finally decided to call the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission thinking that if anyone had some information for me, they would. The staff at AGFC was extremely helpful! They spoke with the ER doctor that treated my son and followed up with me in the days following. This story was never to be released by the AP but I hope that some good comes out of it. Surely there's a lesson to be learned here. :)

Went Saturday to Lake Okhissa from about 11:30am to dark. We caught one 17 3/4" bass about 30 minutes before dark and one bream. My partner was fishing with shiners and crickets all day...i was bass fishing. Caught the bass on black and blue lizard and it was my only bite. Must have been 40 mph winds and made fishing the shallow coves rough. Water temperture was 60 degrees. The locals are complaining that the game wardens are writing tickets for idling speeds over dead idle...no throttle at all !! One guy said he got 3 tickets the same day for the same idle zone violation !! Water is very clear...you can see 8 feet down and still had a hard time finding bass or bream beds. With the 18" to 22" slot limit, it will be harder to bring home a limit, but should provide for lots of good fishing. Just downsize and use realistic colored baits, as the water is very clear.

11 point...4 1/2 years old...taken January 2nd at 5:30 pm...member said the one with him was dark blue/black and twice the size.
I have a single mom neighbor's kid who is in a wheelchair and when i get rained out he comes over to help around my office. He has been wanting to go fishing...fresh or saltwater, but being self-employed the only time i get to go is on rainy days or the day or two immediately after.
Where is a good place i could take him on rainy days where we can fish from the bank or pier that we can access with his wheelchair and be under a cover from the rain. Somewhere within about 1-2 hours of Livingston parish
I really appreciate any help anyone can supply !
This was emailed to me today from a good friend. It caught me by surprise. I need to pay more attention to the new laws being written that will affect us all.
Who ever signed the Bill, needs to be voted out of office.
Now 'all Guns' must be listed on your next (2010) tax return!
As if we didnt have enough to get upset about!
If you have a gun, I hope it isn't registered!
Senate Bill SB-2099 will require us to put on our 2009 1040 federal tax form all guns that you have or own. It will require fingerprints and a tax of $50 per gun.
This bill was introduced on Feb.. 24, 2009, by the Omama staff. BUT . . this bill will only become public knowledge 30 days after the new law becomes effective ! This is an amendment to the Internal Revenue Act of 1986. This means that the Finance Committee has passed this without the Senate voting on it at all.
Trust Obama ? ..... you must be kidding !
The full text of the IRS amendment is on the U.S. Senate homepage:
You can find the bill by doing a search by the bill number, SB-2099.
You know who to call; I strongly suggest you do. Please send a copy of this e-mail to every gun owner you know.
