Guys - Heading down to Elmer's Sunday morning to fish the beach for a bit. Does the tarpon rodeo affect Elmer's? I'm pretty sure I've been there before on Tarpon Rodeo weekend and saw no noticeable increase in crowds, but I'm not entirely sure.
And, anybody been in the past week or so? Last trip...
| Outdoor Board|| Burglary update - advice needed - BrotherEsau on 7/8/14 at 11:12 am|
Hey fellas - back in January, I posted about my house being broken into, a gun and some jewelry being stolen.
Well, I learned today they arrested three pieces of shite for my house and about 10 others. I knew they arrested these guys a while back, but apparently they broke into so many homes, the...
| Outdoor Board|| Crabs along the Pontchartrain seawall? - BrotherEsau on 5/22/14 at 8:46 am|
Hey guys, kids are starting summer vacation and I feel the need to do a little crabbing with them. Do y'all know if crabs have shown up along the seawall? Seems a little cool and early for them, but ... Grand Isle may be in order. ...
| Outdoor Board|| Lost an old friend - to heroine - BrotherEsau on 3/18/14 at 11:03 am|
This is completely outdoors unrelated, but I felt like telling someone and y'all are cooler than the O-T (don't need to be told to PIHB).
Found out last night an old friend of mine died Friday. She was 40. Too young. She had her demons, but she was always fun and full of life and was an importan...
| Outdoor Board|| Help me with a new handgun purchase? (added info) - BrotherEsau on 1/17/14 at 9:05 am|
I need a new gun. I think I want an all steel either 9mm or .45. If I go .45 I want a 1911 I think, but don't have big $$. Budget is $400-600.
I'm leaning towards cz75 and the knockoffs (baby eagle, eaa witness), Baretta 92, maybe a PX4, Remington 1911, or maybe a Sig P220.
What do y'...
| Outdoor Board|| This is why we should all lock up our guns - BrotherEsau on 1/7/14 at 3:45 pm|
Someone kicked in my back door this morning and stole all of our jewelry and my S&W .40. The .40 lives in my top drawer, under various things - scarf, gloves, junk - a place that is not obvious to anyone by just opening the drawer, but gives me fast access if I need it.
I have two kids, thoug...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Is Sproles and Gio too much to give for McCoy? - BrotherEsau on 10/24/13 at 11:00 am|
12 team PPR league. The McCoy owner has no other RBS and is in rough shape. Is Gio and Sproles too much to give? If he did it, I'd have Charles and McCoy. We can only start 2 RBs. I'd have Sjax for bye weeks. ...

I've been proposed this trade - I give up Fjax, Marshall & Edelman and get Gonzo, Megatron & POwell.

| Fantasy Sports Board|| B. Bolden, Edelman or Snelling? - BrotherEsau on 10/6/13 at 11:29 am|
I need a flex and rb out of those 3, ppr league. I'm leaning towards bolden and Snelling, bc I'm worried Edelman won't do much with amendola back and not limited. What do y'all think?...

This shite is hilarious. The guy who has Lacy in my league did not make a waiver claim. Thus, I grabbed Starks. Yesterday, this goofball dropped Pierce to pick up Turbin to start this week as his RB2. He doesn't have Lynch.
So, Pierce is a must own right, even beyond this week? I have Rice in ano...

In a 10 team yahoo league, been around forever.
Last year, and every year before, waivers have been set to reverse standings. We have same (or apparently same settings) this year. I am no. 2 on the waiver wire. I know no. 1 is claiming Julius Thomas. I put in a claim for Thomas, in case he fricks...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Is there a yahoo auction draft app? - BrotherEsau on 8/24/13 at 12:19 pm|
Anyone know if there is a draft app for iOS that will handle a yahoo auction? It blows my mind that yahoo finally has an app that handles the draft, but it can't do auctions. They need to move their shite into the current century.
Thanks in advance...
| Outdoor Board|| Yet another request for advice on Grand Isle/Elmer's Isle surf fishing - BrotherEsau on 7/18/13 at 5:12 pm|
I've made three trips down and fished the surf at Elmers. Had one great trip, two not so great. Trying again on Sunday.
In a south wind, do the rock breakers at Grand Isle actually help and make the water fishable, less rough, less sandy? I don't know if I'd be better off hitting Elmers, and if ...

| Outdoor Board|| Another "shoulda signed up for STAR" story - BrotherEsau on 7/2/13 at 1:46 pm|
Dude caught two almost 8 lb trout in the lake, but hadn't signed up for STAR. The guy who caught them is on the right, looking a little pissed. Must have been taken right after somebody said "You're in the lead for STAR."

BP is the gift that keeps on giving. Areas around Grand Terre were closed to all but recreational rod and reel fishing today. I guess parts were already closed, but these seem to be new tar mats.

Last night for the first time. Got there for our reservation and were seated promptly in the little room to the left of the door. I liked it. Nice a cozy.
We had calamari and a shrimp remoulade for apps. Both were very good. Split a Caesar. It was just ok.
I had a strip, wife had a filet. Bo...
