So I stop at cracker barrel in Gonzales today after bringing my daughter to her follow up after getting tubes in her ears last week (wife was in her car with the baby since I met them from work).

| Outdoor Board|| pulled the trigger on a new truck yesterday Paging thejudge - shawnlsu on 5/30/14 at 8:22 pm|
My 2011 was getting up there on miles and I've been slowly looking for the right deal. It came along yesterday. New 2013 Platinum 4x4 still on the lot in one of the colors I was looking for. They matched the numbers I had in my head that would make me pull the trigger, so I did. My favorite part is ...

| Outdoor Board|| Bass are finally starting to bite around Pigeon - shawnlsu on 4/3/14 at 7:44 am|
Took the day off yesterday and headed to the camp. Started biting around noon. Got 3 keepers, threw 3 more back and lost two good ones at the boat. Water temp is finally over 70 but its real low. If it would come up about a foot it would be on. The two bigger fish didn't look like they had eggs but ...

| Outdoor Board|| I need some spillway advice - shawnlsu on 2/16/14 at 2:55 pm|
Been fishing on the river side for a while now but put the boat in the spillway this morning and got overwhelmed with all the canals. I have no idea where to go for bass/crapaperchalait. I'm in Pigeon at Boo's landing. I know asking for spots is asking a lot but does anyone wanna help a OB'er out wi...

At the camp this weekend and can't find anyone reporting it but a lot of guys at the landing today that have camps on the spillway side were going grab everything out of their camps. They said they were opening the morganza gates and all their shite was gonna flood.
Anyone else heard it?...
| Outdoor Board|| WWTDOBD? Neighbors expect every boat to slow down when passing their camp - shawnlsu on 1/18/14 at 10:08 pm|
A couple lots down at the camp I have some neighbors with a house boat. They just bought it and they yell at every boat that passes and the son and I got into it a little a few weeks ago when I was coming back in from fishing. Its not a no wake zone and I feel that they should have known that a hous...

About 3 weeks ago my wife got bumped on Seigen Lane. Nothing major other than a cover piece on top of the rear bumper is bent. Of course being the nice person that she is and in route to work, she got the guy's phone # and took a picture of his license. The vehicle was owned by his dad's "car lot". ...

Anyone know of any decent ones that don't want an arm and a leg? I just picked up a little bass boat that needs the bench seat redone. Both fishing seats front and rear are good.
ETA: I may get the wife to do it but if its not too expensive I'd rather just bring it somewhere....
| Outdoor Board|| Bought my first fishin camp today! - shawnlsu on 11/22/13 at 7:36 pm|
Been wanting one since the day my family got rid of theirs when I was in high school. Took about 15 years but I got a place all my own now and I can't wait to raise my little girl with a place like I had.
It needs a little work but nothing major. I'm pumped and can't wait to start finding some new...

Going down there monday to look at a camp I'm probably gonna buy. Had a camp just south of the bridge growing up and we always hit hwy 70 and went through Pierre Part but I haven't been down that way in a couple years and I'm assuming you can't go that way due to the sinkhole.
This new place is ju...

I have only read of premiums going up, mostly WAY up. I have yet to read a report or see a news clip where someone is proclaiming that their premiums went down. Its looking like this will be 100%, across the board, premiums along with deductibles going up.
