Does anyone know of an 'Anglers Guide to Saltwater Fishes'? Seems like I saw something about it here sometime back, but can't find anything.
Looking into getting a new trolling motor. Did a search of reports and everything I found was 3 to 5 yrs old. Hoping to get some updated opinions on Minnkota vs Motorguide. Looking at 24 volt, 55 to 70# for a 20 ft, fiberglass bass boat. Any advice?
Be aware. I just received a ticket in the mail from Geauxpass for two violations in August and September. I've had a tag on my windshield since the tollbridge opened. When I called, the woman explained that my card had expired and since I did not call them and give them the new expiration date, I was in violation. I've never heard or read anything about that requirment. I know, I know ignorance is no excuse. Nonetheless, instead of owing $5 bucks, I now owe them $55 bucks. Check your card expiration dates guys and gals.
Haven't fished the Bayou Corne area in over a year. Had planned on going once I got my boat out of the shop until the gas bubbling up in the bayou started. Now there's the sinkhole and evacuations of the locals. I feel bad for them. I've met some mighty nice folks there. I assume the bubbling gas and the sinkhole are related. Anybody know any more than what little the local news is reporting?
Hit the bay behind Grand Isle Wednesday around noon. First stop was the only stop. Started catching 12 to 15 inch specks with some in the 18 inch range. Very few throw backs. For whatever reason the bite seemed to pick up during the slack tide. Started out using live shrimp and pogies but caught just as many on Gulp shrimp. Ended the day with 62 specks. All within sight of the island. That put a nice dent in the freezer.
I've heard comments about not using oil with teflon on reels. Not sure why. If so should I avoid using it on my guns as well? Anyone know?
Finally gonna break down and try to replace a couple of guns that were stolen in a burglary during Gustav. Put bids in at auctionarms.com (never done business with them before) to replace my Dad's 1950's era Winchester model 12, 16 ga. pump and a Remington 16 ga. Sportsman 48. Had a guy tell me the 11 48 was a 'hanging up piece of crap'. I hunted with it for several years, knocked down a helluva lot of dove and never had a hangup or misfire.
1.Has anyone had any good/bad experiences with auctionarms.com ?
2.Has anyone who's shot one had any problems with the 48 ?
Never cooked em' before and couldn't find anything in the recipes. What's the best way to grill, stove top or bake blackfin tuna steaks?
I like my fish a little spicy.
Looking into buying a new set of dock lights for night fishing down in Grand Isle. Any recommendations as far as brand, wattage, etc?
