Generator Opinions
I am looking at buying a diesel generator for my boat but I am very limited on space so I am limited on what I can buy. Anything over 27' in length I can't use. Here are some I found that will fit. Fischer Panda, Mase, Mastervolt Wisper, Lombardini. I have found several bad reviews on Mase but very little on anything else. Lombardini is more affordiable than the other besides Mase. Any information that I can get would be greatly appreciated. If I should look at something else please let me know.

Reviews Wanted
I am looking to get reviews on a company called Olmsted Shipyard Inc in Lake Charles. I would like some feed back from anybody that had a boat worked on there. I am curious if they do good work and repair jobs held up like it should? I can't find much out about this company and there estimate was a lot cheaper than the others I got which raised suspension?

LDWF landing permits
Have a question about the recreational landing permits that LDWF has for anglers to fill out. I see that the only species of fish that you can report is Yellow Fin Tuna but do you need to have a print out of the permit on you incase you get stopped by LDWF regardless of what you are fishing?

Need Opinions
Looking at getting a larger boat. Most of the boats I am looking at have inboard engines either gas or diesel. I am leaning more toward the diesel. I am wondering what kind of yearly maintenance besides oil and filter changes need to be done of these types of engines to keep them in good running condition? Also I fish out of Cypremort Point so I am also curious if anyone knows anyone around the area that services these engines especially the diesel engines. Yanmar is the name brand of the diesel engines that I am looking at. Any opinions are welcome I would like to know all the pro's and cons about this.

REEL MAN CHARTERS / CYPREMORT POINT
We had a jam up day of trout fishing Monday but for the crew that I brought it started out really bad and ended up really good. I received a call at 4:30 in the morning from the crew that their vehicle broke down and someone was coming to bring them another car but it would be 45 minutes or so before they got underway again so I knew we were going to have a really late start. We finally got under way and it was extremely calm all the way to our fishing grounds. We hopped around to a few different rigs and bam we found the fish and it was on. As fast as they could throw out they had a fish on and the trout were slinging in from all sides of the boat. We ended up with their 4 man limit of trout and left while the trout were turning back on but we were able to get the crew back at an earlier enough time for them to fix his truck and get back home. For those who are wondering if that is Gafftop Catfish in the picture yes it is. The guest wanted to keep those to make a Couvillion so we had Catfish to clean too.

Cypremort Point Trip
Late Snapper report. I had a crew that I brought out for July the 4th and we headed out to the blue water. We ended up fishing in a different area than what I usually fish and oh boy that was a good decision. First rig we pulled up too it was on. We started catching some whopper Red Snapper most of the snapper we had went 10 + lbs biggest snapper of the year so far. We could have stayed all day catching those size snapper. They say the Red Snapper is over fished I would sure like to know where. We ended up moving to a few different rigs in the area and ended up landing four Lemon Fish and had a fifth one the line and broke it. We also ended up fishing for a little while for Mangrove Snapper was able to catch a few of those. We found a different rig that was holding some huge Mangrove biggest I seen yet so I canít wait to go back out and see if we can get on those. Well the Snapper season has been extended until July 17 so if someone wants to make a blue water trip give me a call.

Snapper and Trout Trip from Cypremort Poing
Well itís been a few weeks since I been able to bring customers out fishing due to this wonderful weather we been having but late this week it clamed down nicely and we were able to catch some fish. Friday June 28 we brought Neil his son and daughter out Spec fishing. Weather was absolutely beautifully and could not have asked for calmer seas. We headed out about 6:00 Friday morning hit a few rigs out of the pass one of the first cast Neilís daughter landed a Spec that went over 3 lbs. This girl has never been fishing offshore and she fought it like a champ and was pumped. They ended up catching a few more at that rig but no tide was moving and action was kind of slow for me so we decided to start rig hop pen. We went from rig to rig catching fish and ended up with a nice mess of fish and two beautifully reds. Father and son hooked up on the reds at the same time both took about 10 minutes to get in the boat. That was something to see both of them were pumped and ready for more action. Seen a few triple tails but just could not get them to bit that day. We had a slack tide all day long and it did not start moving again until late that evening. Only took one picture because I broke the lens on my camera would have shot more but could not.

June 29 we went after the big boys in the blue water again we headed due south to our fishing grounds. We left out about 6:00 in the morning again but the weather was a bit different than the previous day. We had the chop on and a stiff wind but we were still able to load the boat with fish. We ended up with a nice mess of Red Snapper and some Nice Mangrove Snapper and the King Mackerel had showed up in full force too. Could have caught those all day long if we wanted. We did not see the first Lemon Fish but it was hard to see anything when the seas are that choppy. Main thing is we came home with plenty of fish.

I had a partial cancellation for July 4th and have not filled the slots yet. I have had a lot of inquires but no one has committed I have four opening for July 4th if someone is interested in making a blue water trip as a walk-in let me know. You can email me, call or text I will respond either way.
