I have a 5 month old lab puppy that I am interested in getting trained for duck hunting. I don?t necessarily need him to be hand signal trained more to just to pick up a duck he sees fall. I am looking for some suggestions of people around Zachary/central/Clinton area. Thanks in advance.

Does anybody know if the specks have moved into Lake Decade yet? Ive always been told the second cold front is when they start to move up but i dont know if what we have had so far are 'cold' fronts. Trying to make a trip next weekend so any info is appreciated.

I have a pond that i have been working on and stocking for the last year or so. I fertilized it last summer and stocked it with 300 catfish in last september. Now the grass is taking over. Every time i go look at it there is more and more grass. What can i use to kill it without huting the fish? Its not just growing out from the banks it is all over the pond.

I have been looking for a while but i think i am ready to sell my bass boat and buy a surface drive rig. I mostly fish the atachafalaya spillway and the verett area. I figure i can do everything out of a surface drive that i do now. I also have access to a bass boat and a 24ft bay boat if needed. My question is which surface drive motor do yall think is best? Ive looked at gator tail, pro drive, mud buddy and go devil. Leaning towards gator tail because that is what i have run before and most of the crawfishers i see in pierre part with surface drives run gator tails. Let me know what yall think good and bad. Thanks.

What is yalls favorite catfish bait? I have been running some jugs and doing pretty good on worms but you can keep the little ones off of it. Crawfish seem to work good but are not as easy to find. Im going back this weekend and gonna try some cut shad. What do yall like to use?

I have a 2006 yamaha 115 four stroke on a 18.5 ft xpress bass boat. Last week a ring failed and scared 2 cylinders. My mechanic said that nothing 'caused' it that sometimes the rings just go out. He said that the 115 is a solid motor but he has seen a couple come in with this problem. I was wondering if anybody else has run across this. Motor has less than 150 hours on it and has never been run hard.

I lost my black lab last nite (12/14/13) by the Bluffs golf course in St. Francisville. He has on a collar with my name and number and also a shocking collar. Answers to Jack. If anybody has seen him please let me know. Thanks, Blaine

I was driving down the rd in Zachary, La today and found a deer head in the ditch. It's a pretty good 8 point. Looked like it fell out of a truck. Had a tag in its ear with the name Hunter A. David. I called LDWF trying to find out who it belongs to and all they could tell me is to call back Monday. I would rather do it without them if I can. Like I said its a pretty nice buck. Wouldn't be surprised if somebody wanted to have it mounted especially if its for a kid. If you know anything about this please call me at 225-937-4829. Thanks, Blaine.

I have some questions about stocking a pond with catfish. I have access to a pond that had a lot of catfish in it years ago but some kids would go in there and feed them and shoot the fish when they came up. I want to re-stock it for my little boy for when he gets big enough to fish. I need to know how many fish to put in it. Do I measure the pond and go by that? Also, do I need to 'kill' the pond before putting fingerlings in it? How long does it take a fingerling to grow big enough to catch? Thanks for any help.

My dog is scheduled to go to the vet for his yearly check up in a week. He is a 15 month old black lab. I am trying to decide weather or not to get him fixed. I don't really plan on breeding him but I'm not opposed to it. I am using him to blood trail and I'm kinda worried about him not bring aggressive if I get him fixed. Any advice would be appreciated. -Blaine.

I heard a while back that the state was going to put an endorsement on your drivers license to show that you have a lifetime hunting/ fishing license or your boaters safety course if you are required to have it. Does anyone know if they ever did this or not?

I have a 15 month old black lab that I have been trying to train to blood trail a deer. I put him on 2 when he was about 5 months old. Found one but I\'m not sure if it was an accident or not. I have been putting a few drops of blood on a piece of hide and pulling it around the yard and he has gone straight to it every time. He gets a treat and lots of praise and seems to be very driven. I plan on putting him on every deer I can this season weather we know where it is or not. My question is am I doing everything I need to be or is there something else I need to ad to his training? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I got my new sportsman yesterday. He s a keeper coming in at 10lbs even. Went through a rough spell with mom for a little while but mom and baby are fine now. Now I just have to figure out how to raise a little one. I just hope he loves the outdoors as much as I do.

For the last few months I have been building a new house. My dad has been there every day helping me. I am almost done and I want to buy him a new rifle. I have a H&R 45-70 that I really like and have had no problems with. He wants a 444 but said that he likes the CVA Elite. I dont know anything about the CVA and need some opinions before I go buy one. Thanks in advance.

I'm trying to find a site that has up to date satellite images. Our lease has just been logged and I want to get some maps of it. I know Google Earth has it but I'm not sure how long they take to update. Thanks in advance. -Blaine

There is no way for anything without legs to get out. It is a pond in the middle of a field. I didnt know you had to get a permit to use grass carp. I thought you could just buy some from dunns fish farm or somewhere like that. How many carp would i need for a half acre pond?

It is about half an acre.

Man i went through the same thing on my xpress bass boat. Vent hose had some slack in it and gas would get stuck in there and not let the air out. I cut some off of the hose where it didnt have a belly anymore now you cant pour gas in it fast enough.

I would be more worried about finding somebody to bring who knows how to catch fish instead of finding live bait.

A comment titled: Reason in response to a report titled: Yamaha F115

My mechanic told me when he got it broken down that the yamaha f115 is a very solid motor with little to no problems but he has seen a few the come in where the rings have come apart for no reason. Said he is not sure if yamaha got a bad batch of rings for some reason or what. Im definately going to ask him again when i go pick it up. Hopefully he will call this week.

A comment titled: Never in response to a report titled: Yamaha F115

Motor has never bren run hot, at least in the four years i have had it. I put a water pressure gauge on it that i watch more that any other gauge on the boat. When you get one rebuilt, is there a break-in period like on a new motor?

A comment titled: Real gas in response to a report titled: Yamaha F115

I try to only put real gas in it. Only had ethanol a couple times and the few times it did it was treated with sea foam.

A comment titled: .17 ammo in response to a report titled: .17 HMR

For what it is worth, I was told that all of the companies that make the smaller ammo stopped making the .17 ammo and are focusing on the .22 ammo because everybody is buying/hoarding it. Not sure how true this is but it does make sense.

A comment titled: 90 yamaha in response to a report titled: Need help with 2005 Yamaha 90hp 2 stroke!

I had the same problem with a 2006 model. Mine would lose power when running wide open but not at half or 3/4 throttle. Ended up being a screw had backed out inside the carb and would not let the float open completly. When it was wide open it wasnt letting enough gas in to stay running. I was ready to stick a piece of dynamite in it by the time i finally found this. Hope you find out what it is.

A comment titled: Found in response to a report titled: Lost Dog

I actually ended up finding him about 1130 this morning. I had to come to work after i looked at daylight but a guy i hunt with went back to our place and found him. Going to get a gps collar this week. I use him to blood trail and all i can figure is that he got on a deer and got turned around. Who knows?

A comment titled: Found in response to a report titled: Found Deer Head

I ended up finding out who it belonged to. It was for a 16 year old boy who was planning to mount it. His mama called me sunday and said that they saw the ad that i put on this site. They were so glad to get it back. The boy said the horns were stolen out of the back of his truck. Im just glad i was able to get the horns back to him. Thanks LAS

A comment titled: The vet in response to a report titled: Neutering a dog

I did talk to the vet before i came here. He told me that it could take some of his drive away but it doesnt in all dogs. I just wanted to see if anybody had any experience with this. I have heard both sides. I know a man who had a blood dog that lost interest after he was fixed. Also know a man with one of the best dogs i have ever been with that is fixed. Just looking for some personal experiences.
