He slowly and silently crept up on the unknowing Goose, once close enough...........HE POUNCED!!!!!!! Got him in a head lock, then ripped it off and started chewing on his neck..........He's a little unorthodox, but He gets the job done............

Ok.........Been boat shopping, Finally getting ready to actually buy one......I've looked at them all, bay boats, sport boats, flats boats, center consoles, and Walkarounds..........As of now I'm leaning toward the walkaround.

Reasons are as follows.......

My Wife wants a bathroom inside somewhere, she won't hang her butt over the side.
She also wants somewhere to get out of the rain if we catch some.
With 3 kids at home, would like somewhere for them to go to get out of the sun, rest ,etc.......
I want something that will do OK in Big Lake as well as Grand Isle.(tired of getting there and being greated by 3 footers and can't go fish cause boat is to small)
When I go to Grand Isle, I hate having to pay 185 dollars a night for a room I only use for 5 hours

I've talked to friends and relatives(you know who you are) and they have givin me mixed reviews. Some say it's just a big storage space, others say you can't ride in there while underway anyway, so why have it??

I'm looking for some words from people that either have a Walkaround now, or have had one..........The pics above are the boat we are looking at......It's a 19 foot Trophy walkaround w/ a 150 Optimax.....Thanks.......Tim

Goin Hitch shopping today.........There seem to be about a Thousand different kind......I'm usually more of a do it yourself kinda guy, but these things seem heavy and bulky to work with........Is it worth it to pay the extra Hundred bucks to have it installed??

Seems kinda high to me.....I've onlyt called a few places so far. I may be able to find a cheaper install, But can't imagine it's worth a hundred??

If you have........how easy was it???

February 12, 2009 at 6:52am

Gary, got a few pics of the pickle for ya.......Chris.....This is why you don't want to wade fish.........You look like an Idiot!!!!

February 09, 2009 at 1:12pm

January 23, 2009 at 7:59pm

Bad weekend to get the itch, but gotta scratch it right????

Made my first trip to Lake P today with My Dad and little Sister......
First off.....MEGA FOG!!!!!! (made for a LONG, SLOW boat ride)
Second .......Always check the oil before you hit the water!!!!!! Even if your told it has plenty!!!!

Long story short.......Drove a LONG ways today to fish for (what seemed like) 45 min.......Total bag....2 Flounder.......

BIG BIG BIG BIG Thanks to Gary Zeraingue for bringing us some oil at the Dock, answering questions, and laughing with us...........

I'll Be back soon, hopefully with better conditions.........Maybe have better results......ALTHOUGH...I can't complain to much...I figured we'd get skunked?? And had a good time with Pop's and Lily.... Go figure..........Tim

My Family and I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!!!! And remember, If you eat more than 10 lbs of food, it may be hard to get in the stand in the morning!!!! Also....no matter how much you have to drink.....just remember, the Turkey on the table is ALREADY dead.....DON'T SHOOT IT!!!!

November 27, 2008 at 9:18am

Ok guys.........I already know what I'm gonna shoot......Unless you can convince me otherwise........Which would you use in a thick cover hunting area??? 30-06 or 44mag.....also which grain.....Don't think I will have a far shot to make......I would guess under 60yards.........I'm planning on the 44mag 240grn half jacket.........Sound good to you??? Look out by the way......as excited as I am about getting out there, Ya'll may have some new competition......But don't worry, I plan to kill one in the first 30 minutes, then getting out of your way!!!!! Tim

November 12, 2008 at 9:38am

I'm in a pickle........Haven't gone deer hunting before, and want to try it out Opening day...........I have the Gun, Clothes, Scent killing juice, all that, But no stand........Was just gonna sit in a chair on the ground, but think that may be a bit dangerous......I REALLY don't want to go buy a climbing stand just to see if I like Deer hunting at all........Everyone I know that goes LOVES it!! but I usually don't like keeping still that long....I really want to try it out.....Does anyone have an old stand that I could use that weekend??? I promise it will be well taken care of, and returned in same condition..............I know this is alot to ask, but I really can't see buying one, not liking my experience, and having to sell it at a loss..........Any help would be GREATLY appreciated................Tim

November 11, 2008 at 9:38am

My Brother Alan sent me this..........It's a pic of a Red that he cleaned last night after a GOOD day on Big Lake........He was fishing with GULP! Alive shrimp in molting color........when he cut this guy open, He had 2 other GULP! Alive shrimp in Molting color in his stomach........Jig heads and all.....Attached to each was a short length of Power Pro line.......He kept both baits because they were in such good shape, SO.....If your missing a couple lures.........Let me know and He'll return them??? Oh and to the Gulp nay-sayers........Heres your proof!!!!

September 29, 2008 at 8:01am

Huey came home day after Gustav!!!!........Between him and the no power situation, I haven't been on in a few weeks. Hope everyone weathered the storm ok........Hey Ike........Go to Mexico!!!

September 09, 2008 at 9:50am

Because of Global Warming we were forced to put the boat back on the trailer at 8:00 am on Saturday.......I don't mind getting rained on, I don't mind a little wind..........But when it's raining and windy AND 70 Degrees!!!! That's when I shake uncontrolably and get my butt home.........I was under the impression that its August?? Did I sleep straight through to November?? Luckily we were able to duck into the camp for about an hour(which was full of bees!!!) before heading in........So...on the water for 6:30.......hiding in the camp at 7.......boat back on trailer for 8.......GREAT day was had by all....................Ugh

A comment titled: Law........ in response to a report titled: BOAT TITLE???

The law was that ONLY a boat with a lein against it needed a title........That has now changed......anytime you register a boat with WLF you will need to pay an extra 15 dollars for a title......I just went thru this with them......

I'd tell the bank that they'll get the NEW title when you register it....

A comment titled: thats a real educated comment........ in response to a report titled: Committee to ban oyster fishing

Its become obvious to me that your not looking to say anything intelligent on this matter.........if that's your area, and you have a dog in the fight, then by all means, go after the Texas guys in your area........why are you asking my permission? Did you ask mommy what to wear this morning?

A comment titled: dr. spot....... in response to a report titled: Committee to ban oyster fishing

There is a real issue here. TX shut down their oyster fishing, so all those Texas boats are coming to big lake instead. The number of boats has more than doubled. If it was just the same local guys that have been doing this for decades, this wouldn't be as big a problem as it is.........with the use of dredges, the oystermen can deplete a reef in no time at all.........another issue is licensing, but that'll have to wait till next time........

April 09, 2010 at 8:28am
A comment titled: yall seem to have missed the point........ in response to a report titled: Committee to ban oyster fishing

He said DREDGING.....not oyster fishing........learn to read better and you may get somewhere in life........

He's right about dredges. The fisherman can and do take tons of oysters out of that lake. Law says they are to DRIFT while they cull, and they don't. Instead they anchor up and cull all in one spot making huge piles of oysters instead of a spread. This does two things. One it causes the oyster grounds to be clogged and growth is stunted, two, it makes huge mounds of shell near inches from the surface of the water that you WILL hit with your boat and cause MAJIR damage..........if the oyster fisherman were to only use tongues Tulsa would NOT be the case............noone IA trying to keep these guys from making a living, we just want them to do it ethically...............thanks for reading..............Tim

John, you have it backwards. more pitch will reduce rpm. I'd think a 15 or 17 at most for that boat/motor combo.
