How is the fishing this time if year?
My better half's family rented a house so I gotta leave my main stomping grounds. Any good places to throw the yak in off hwy 1?
Oh, and where is the best place to watch the LSU/Ole Miss game in GI? GTH OM and Geaux Tigers....

It rides and paddles great, but getting in and out at my dock takes some balance.
Only got one barely keeper red this afternoon, but there will be more next time.

I had TSA Pre-screening and thought I was breezing right through until the inspector stopped the conveyor belt. "Sir, do you have a gun in your bag? Do you own a gun?" me - "No sir, I have some at home, but I know exactly where all three are."
I had been keeping my S&W 642, at my girlfriends...

They were lined up for spinner baits this morning and I got my limit in half hour or so out of a :yack:.
I paddled about a couple hundred yards from the Yellow Bar to some marsh ponds. The ponds are already getting grassy, so get out there.
| Outdoor Board|| Bait casting rodnreels suck - dat yat on 2/12/14 at 8:44 pm|
As a lifelong spinning reel fisherman*, I decided to learn a new skill, bait-casting. I used Cabela points Monday to get a St Croix Triumph rod and a Lew's Speed Spool reel. It seemed like a good set-up, but every time I cast more than 15' I get a birds nest. The last one is a birds nest-from-hel...

I've travelled north and south with my job and thought I could drive on ice ok. On the way home from Beaumont this afternoon I lost it on an overpass near Welsh. No pain or truck damage, and before I got off the phone with AAA a dude in a duallie was offering to pull my Chevy out of the ditch. Be ...

After not seeing gators in the harbor out back since September, tonight there were four gators across the water by the woods. Do gators leave the brush and seek deep water for a hard freeze?
I always thought they hibernated in the marsh when it was cold. I live on the edge of Bayou Sauvage NWR in...

My dad is 70 and quit shooting when he got a pacemaker. He kinda misses the camp atmosphere and wanted some time out of the house because mama retired this year.
We talked longer than we have in ages. He got a tour of the lease. He got accommodations in a ramshackle trailer. He got treated to ...

I noticed a knee high electric fence along Chef Hwy between New Orleans East and Bayou Sauvage NWR about a mile long in an area where the just replanted a bunch of hardwoods in the brush.

Today I shot at a buck at 130 yards and it ran off. Pissed because I missed, I sat there and ate a bannana. While eatin I see a buck and shoot it, boom flop as I'm used to, seven point.
