This is a link about a little boys battle against H1N1. We are putting on a benefit for this little boy. I was wondering if any of the outfitters on here would be interested in donating fishing or hunting trips to be auctioned off. or any other thing. He has been battling this since November down in New Orleans at the chlidrens hospital. There is two very nice videos clips on the website. One is a story the other is a song that a local artist came up with. Any help would be great!! Thanks for taking the time to read this and hope you like the website. The little boy is from Alexandria, La. If you have any questions regarding this feel free to contact me direct

When i know that i'm going to start using topwater there is always four rods ready to go. On the first rod is a Buzz bait, rigged with a trailer. On the trailer there is two ways that i hook it, First in heavy thick grass i use a small tube and put the eye of the hook inside it to help hold the hook in the staright out position, the next is to place the tube in front of the hook so the hook is able to freely swing back and forth(recommended around lillies).On the next rod would be my frog. First off we have all had short strikes while fishing a ribbit,horny toad etc.. So what i do to help out on the short strikes is cut off a barb on a treble hook then hook each leg on the remaining two hooks. This will diffently produce more fish in the livewell. On my third rod and one of my most favorites is the fluke. There is two ways i love working this bait, first working it fast keeping it up on top of the water(walkin the dog). The next is to slowly work it, bringing it to the top and letting it flutter back down slowly.this will get the real good reation hits. Last but not least is the swim bait, i've have been winning tournaments on this for the past three years. Just a couple tricks to try with this one. I do run it like a spinnerbait on a fast retrieve keeping it just under the water. Bouncing it off of wood, ripping it through the the grass and letting it free fall 2 seconds, or just the simple cast and real. I hope after reading this it helps out on your next top water fishing trip.Thanks kyle

A comment titled: Back to the night time stuff in response to a report titled: Your turn to impact legislation

remeber, before we go bashing on each other, the story is on bowfishing. If you put regulation on night time stuff there will be lots of upset froggers, night time speck guys, etcc.. Don't step on everyones toes!! The issue is on bowfishing. If your upset cause someone else has started a business, get over it. If you think they are going to take more fish out of your water, get over it. The best part of bowfishing is the sport- I promise i can catch way more on a rod-n-reel then most take with there bows. It's a sport, so remeber we all like doing different stuff to enjoy the outdoors. And no i wouldn't shoot a bass, heck i release everyone i catch.

A comment titled: the only way that i know in response to a report titled: BATS!!!

the only way i know to get rid of them is to plug the hole with spray foam about 10 pm... the 10 o'clock part is critical cause you want to make sure they are out and not stuck in the hole. I would maybe use some type of screen on the back side of the hole with a staple gun

A comment titled: no in response to a report titled: Way to go Senator Vitter, thank you!!! it wasn't your post, it was some of the earlier post that were bashing him for playing with hookers in washington, it was his fault he gave in, but we can't hold that against the only man that is fighting for us in Louisiana. Heck i don't know how many others are standing up in our freedoms but you have got to get behind the ones that do

A comment titled: best part in response to a report titled: Way to go Senator Vitter, thank you!!!

I for one could care less who's playing under the covers or desk. Just who's gettng the job done. As long as the job is getting done to our benfit, let him play with whoever he wants to. Cause i'm not going to judge him by what he has done in the bedroom, i'm judging him on his accomplishments. Judging, being as re-electing him, cause we are not to consider his personal actions, just those that help the people of Louisiana. Each and everyone of us are going to do wrong (just the spot light isn't on us) that's what makes us humans and christians.
In my opinion, WAY TO GO!!!!! Keep up the good work.
Anyone that stands up for our rights,is a step up from those who stand back and watch crap take place. I'm sorry for those of you that think you should slam him cause he steps up and takes charge, but also got caught messing around on his wife. Personal / Job never get the two mixed up. ALL WE SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT IS JOB PROFORMANCE

A comment titled: central louisiana numbers were great in response to a report titled: Duck season recap

Well living in Iowa for the 2009/2010 hunting season was fun, all i kept hearing from everyone down south was how good all the hunting was. So i decided to come down and hunt for two weeks. Reaching the Louisiana boarder on December 19th, my anxiety was raising. I pulled into the camp and layed down to take me a nap after driving 18 hrs straight through. My dad talked me into duck hunting and was i surprised. For the past four years, I've been deer hunting cause the duck numbers were down. We had our limit by 7:15 that opening morning of second split. Went over to the president of the leases camp and he started to tell me that it had been like that everyday. They had been killing there limit in all 7 blinds with 4 to 6 guys. With the majority of the ducks being teal and not really wanting to wait to try our luck on waiting for big ducks. So the rest of that week played out to be the same, whacking the ducks every day. The next week i had to do some deer hunting cause the numbers dropped off quickly. Cold fronts pushing in pushed the teal out. For sure our numbers were up, best in 7 or 8 years

A comment titled: after reading everyone's post in response to a report titled: 8-Point Rule

Most everyone has the same outlook, we like to hunt trophy bucks. I moved to iowa this past winter so i could hunt up in monster territory. After hunting with a bunch of locals up here, the same story comes out no matter were we live. A trophy buck to one man is different from person to person. I would have to agree with a true moster would be a 7 year old deer, no matter if he's a 20 pointer or 4 pts. Smart,old,wise,and illusive bucks are the trophy. hitting on a couple other points. Just to hit on another post i was reading down in October. It sure was nice for Louisiana hunters to be able to kill 6 deer of choice and now 3 and 3. Up here you can kill 1 buck with bow, and your pick of 1 buck with either shotgun 1or2 but not both or muzzeloader early or late. But u can only pick one.
Here is the part that is interesting, there is very few guys up here that actually hunt. Most just group hunt, make drives and try to kill off a bunch of does. Out of all the guys i hunted with we let lots of deer run. They had to be big bodies no small bodies allowed except for the kids.
the rule on the farm hunts if you shoot it you mount it, if you don't then you can't hunt anymore. So in that aspect, if you kill a 2 year 6 pt you should mount it. Be proud of what ever you kill, and always enjoy your time in the woods. Remeber it's all about the hunt and not the kill.

A comment titled: Fish saline in response to a report titled: Saline Larto

The white perch should be pulling up under the bushes. park your boat on the bank, using a slip cork about 8"-12" along bank with shallow flats bushes out from bank about 5-7ft. Work most of the limbs slipping your rod tip out there and letting the line feed out. Most of the time as your cork reaches the stopper it will just keep going.***HINT*** use big line and pull them in quick.
Bass they will be up by the bushes also, slow roll war eagle spinner bait. Bright sunny day with low wind use a fluke. it will be a good time to hook up on some really good fish
