I have a new camp in Cocodrie, and Iím learning the area. I was hoping to hit some of the shallower rigs for a few lemonfish and perhaps even some snapper.
Do you have the coordinates for the Mardi Gras and EnStar rigs that are supposed to be near the shoreline?
What resources do you have available for us in the way of charts, waypoints, etc?
Dear Capt. Paul:
I have a Garmin 182c that is not reading the data card with topo map source on it. I have two friends who have the same unit, and their units are reading my data card. I tried their cards in my unit, and my unit does not read their cards. I called Garmin and they sent me the data card 6.0 update to update my unit but it would not work in my unit, so I called them back and was told the data card reader in my unit is bad and they no longer support this unit. I was wondering if you know anyone who can fix the unit or where I may get another unit secondhand because I have all the attachments and really like the unit. This unit was purchased in 2001. I just thought maybe you had a good idea on what to do since I like the unit so much.Read More...
