| Outdoor Board|| Reggio report - Fishhead on 11/22/13 at 6:53 pm|
Got down to Reggio again today, since it looked like the last decent fishing weather for a while. Still no trout, caught 5 nice bass I kept, and 4 reds over 24" I released. Water is still high, but will probably fall good with the weather changing tomorrow.
For you kayakers, I saw the same ga...
| Outdoor Board|| Hopedale Saturday - Fishhead on 11/11/13 at 9:03 am|
Brought Little Fishhead out with me Saturday to Hopedale. Realizing it was opening duck day, decided to get there about 8am to let the chaos settle down. Had to park down the road behind the 'F' sheds after launching.
Went to a spot I know holds some kid sized reds, as little FH really wanted to...

4* WR from Purvis MS currently committed to FSU
He's going to Ole Miss. Just thought I'd throw that out there for Rebel fans. I heard it from two friends with kids on the team (Purvis High School), and today heard it from a friend of mine that is close with Markell's dad....

| Outdoor Board|| Gun for the wife advice - Fishhead on 10/18/13 at 11:31 pm|
I know there's a lot of knowledgeable posters here on the OB, so figured I would ask for some advice on a gun for the wife.
She is taking a CCW course in Mississippi, wants to carry because I work out of town a lot. I was thinking .380 for her, because she has shot my friend's wife's .380 and li...

| Outdoor Board|| Project Boat - Fishhead on 2/18/13 at 10:51 pm|
About a year ago, I bought a little flat (14') with a 25 Johnson on a trailer. I was working out of town at the time, and I did it off of pictures and knowledge that the motor and trailer were good. My dad actually went and looked at it for me, and I sent him the money to get it.
Anywho, at the...
| Outdoor Board|| Hopedale Monday 2-4-13 - Fishhead on 2/5/13 at 10:29 am|
Went fishing again, but with a friend of mine this time instead of my brother. This guy bought our bayboat and wanted me to go with him in it to show him some stuff, so I obliged. (he twisted my arm haha)
We didn't have a great day, as the sun never came out to warm up my little oyster flat. Bu...
| Outdoor Board|| Tuesday Jan 22 Hopedale Trip - Fishhead on 1/22/13 at 8:10 pm|
My brother and I hit Hopedale again today...although not many others did. We don't fish weekends, and Monday was just part of an extended weekend, so we waited until today to see if we could match Friday's haul.
It was sunny again, but also cold and windy again. Who ordered the friggin' cold ...
| Outdoor Board|| 1/18/13 Hopedale fishing report - Fishhead on 1/18/13 at 8:03 pm|
Went to Hopedale with my brother again today. Got there at about 9am, hoping the chill had subsided. Hmmph...we were early.
Lots of boats at BSM though, mostly flats boats like ours when we were launching.
We went across the MRGO, thru Stump Lagoon, almost to Eugenie, turned and fished t...
| Outdoor Board|| Hopedale 1/11/13 trip - Fishhead on 1/11/13 at 9:08 pm|
My brother and I went back to Hopedale today. Tempurature was good, low 70s, fairly sunny, south winds, but the winds were stronger than expected (forecasted) as usual.
The first three ponds were lacking several elements necessary for catching redfish.
1) sufficient water...
| Outdoor Board|| Hopedale trip 1/7/12 - Fishhead on 1/7/13 at 9:58 pm|
But anyway, my brother just purchased a nice little flats boat, and we christened her today in Hopedale. Didn't get to fly fish with the wind, and the sun disappeared shortly after we got on the water. But we had a good time breaking in the new boat (and learning how to fish ou...
| Outdoor Board|| Uplula mag loader - Fishhead on 1/1/13 at 7:44 pm|
Anyone use these? Raining it's arse off here in S MS today. I wanted to go shoot some paper bad guys today, but couldn't make it happen with the weather, so went to Academy instead. Found ONE Uplula loader left (they had a couple smaller caliber ones), so I picked it up.
The gun display was pi...

OK, I have a black lab that's 1 yr and 3 mths old. I got him at a year, AKC papers included. He's no hunting dog, but I didn't get him for that. He's beautiful, very gentle, and hilarious.
In the last two months, (about since he became acclimated to his surroundings here), he's been known to...

You did a good job defending it, but I want to bring this up. You put up the stats showing the playcalls in the second half.
We rushed the ball 8 straight times, got to the 10(ish), then passed for a loss of 3. And yes, it was a for...

Has LSU (aside from 2007) ever done well in these games?
Also, what kind of team beats a mid/lower tier SEC rival by only a 12-10 margin??

Bought this little flat and have only run it 3 times. Prior to running it, brought it to a local outboard repair shop and told them to replace the impeller, and fix anything that needs fixing. They replaced the impeller and said everything else was good to go.
1st time out, ran good...for a whi...
| Outdoor Board|| Inshore conditions tomorrow in SELA? - Fishhead on 6/23/12 at 9:35 pm|
I live in MS about 50 miles inland, so conditions aren't usually very different, regarding winds anyway. Went to Reggio last Tuesday and the winds were kicking from the SE, and the water was WAY high. I know there's been high water along the coast all week due to the SE winds, including here in So...

Who uses them, do you think they attract bigger trout, and how many of you believe it's because female trout hate them because they steal their eggs? :lol:...

Who's got what to say about it? Just spent about 3 hours shooting the M&P in 9mm, .40, and .45. The guy who owns the guns I was shooting was talking up the .45 from the get go, and I THOUGHT I was more interested in the .40. Turns out, the .45, to me, shot smoother, and I shot better groups with ...

Hit the marsh yesterday with my brother in an effort to continue the assualt on LA inshore saltwater fish...no mercy. Not the day we hoped for, but all in all, thru some hard fishing, we wound up with a decent box of fish.
The idea was that, with the forecasted light WSW winds, we could get outs...
