With the unpredictable weather we have been having so far this summer, I have been doing more bowfishing than R&R fishing. Sitting here bored at work and decided to post up a few pics of some of our trips so far this summer.
Had some buds come down from North Texas and North La. last week to do some bowfishing on my new boat. The boat performed flawlessly. It was a bit windy and the tides were high, but we hammered the fish.
Hey guys. Last summer 2 of the rodeos had a bowfishing division. Does anyone know if any of the other rodeos are planning to add a bowfishing division this year?
Winds died down Friday afternoon and my daughter was after me to take her bowfishing, so we went make a short trip in Golden Meadow. I let my lil girl and my son do the majority of the shooting and we called it quits in 2 1/2 hrs with:
2 - Drum
1 - Speck
Made a bowfishing trip. Found the blue cats up on the mud flats. Shot 48 blue cats, 3 redfish, 4 sheepheads, 5 common carp and 2 alligator gars. Biggest gar measured 7' 10' and weighed in @ 208# on a non certified scale.
OK guys, this is an idea that I've been thinking on and would just like to get a feel for how many if any of ya'll would use a set up like this.
I have approx 5 acres vacant land off of hwy 3235 in CutOff, 2 miles North of Wal Mart and 1/2 mile South of Golden Motors. I'm thinking about going thru the expense and trouble of making a small RV parking ground. Would be looking to cater to the rec fishing ppl. Maybe set up a covered fish cleaning station with running water and elec. I know I will be going thru a lot of hassle with getting all the permits and such, so I'm just looking to see how much if any interest I would get if I could talk the wife into this.
Just got off the phone with a buddy that is doing the clean up. The group that his boat is with consists of 26 - 50' +/- local trawl boats. They have been roaming and searcing for oil along the coast between the Houma Nav Channel and Timbaleir Islands for over 2 weeks with NO oil sighted, until recently. A big patch of oil is coming into Terrebonne Bay, Whiskey Pass area. Now that the oil is here and the boats are in position to clean (or atleast attempt to clean), BP orders the boats to tie up at the docks in Dulac. ???????????? They say the weather is a concern and don't want the boats out there. We are talking about 50' steel hull shrimp boats here! Can someone please tell me why they can't be working on this oil, even if they have to let it get inside the passes and work in the bays? Why tie the boats up? What gives? Anyone have any idea whats going thru BP's heads on this?
While this whole experience is tragic, at least a little good is coming out of it. I personally know 2 people that have been laid off for 6 months and are now working as cleanup crew. This is only 1 good thing out of thousands of terrible things, but some people need to take advantage of the situation. I'm sure the contractors that are involved with the cleanup are in need of able bodied people. Prayers to the perished and thier families, and a huge Thanks to the volunteers that are helping in anyway that they can.
Finally Made a short bowfishing trip Monday 26th. Conditions were tough, windy and semi-dirty water made the fishing tough. We still managed to box 8 reds & 4 heads. We scratched on the black drum, only seen 2 of them and they were too close to 16' to chance shooting them. My co-pilot started things off with a bang sticking 2 reds and 1 head with his first 3 shots, he then went 0 for 4 on his next 4 shots, but he capped the night with a big sheephead when we decided to call it a night early @ 10:00 pm.
I'm having a problem with an air cooled engine and hoping someone might have some helpfull input. I'm switching from a gravity feed fuel system to a pump. I baught a 12 volt in-line fuel pump. It is the lowest psi pump available, pushing 3.5 - 5.5 psi. The problem is, the pump will force the float open and flood the engine. If I turn on the pump, start the engine, then shut off the pump, it runs fine untill the carb bowl empties, but if I leave the pump running, the gas will spill out of the breather at a steady flow. I've already taken the carb off and cleaned it up ( the float is not sticking ). Does anyone know of an in-line regulator or anything that might work ? The engine is for my bow-fishing boat. Looking to get things going soon, I'm itching to go stick some fish. Thanks, Corbert
A friend forwarded this pic to me, was wondering if any of ya'll also seen it or know if it is the real deal. Maybe another "Hogzilla" ? The e-mail said it weighed 400#.
Biggest 7 Pt I've ever seen on the hoof took a fall after the old smoke pole spoke to him. My dad took the nice 8 Pt.
Congrats to Lisa on her first deer. She was in a box stand in a 4 year old cut-over looking over a food plot when this nice 7 pt made the ultimate mistake. She made a perfect shot @ 75 yards +/- a few. Now we have a new life long hunting member among us. Kajun
Does anyone have any experience with the deerview mirror? I'm just wanting to know if anyone has had a problem with the quality etc .... Thanks in advance for any info. Kajun
Have a few pics of this nice 1, but so far he is only coming around in the middle of the night. Maybe he'll slip up soon. I'd like to take him with my bow.
