I've known the Moscona family for nearly my whole life- went to school with Matt's brother.
Prayers for Drew- its amazing what can be done nowadays in the medical world, and I have no doubt he will pull through!

Look on Overstock.com They have a number of good tents at many different price points.
The Turbo tents are nice- easy setup and take down and built to last, but they are at least twice what you are looking to pay.
How often do you see yourself using the tent? If its just a couple times a yea...

Anyone else think they got the names of these two movies backwards?
The first should have been Dawn, as it was the true beginning. 2nd movie should have been Rise, as the apes did just that- rise up.

According to Rad, looks like the one caught was released by the bridge!
I had considered taking the kayak out that way and working the surrounding marsh relentlessly until September- good thing I didn't, as that lil guy didn't stay in that area for long!

Went through two of the cheaper ones before investing in a Boga.
They're spendy, but worth the price IMO. I have never lost a fish from one (the cheaper BassPro brand ones did), they have a pretty accurate scale on them and I have had it for 2 years now and with no maintenance it is still work...

Studios typically compete with each other by releasing the same concepts within months of each other.

Fun day on the water. :cheers:...

There are a number of kayak tournaments coming up with kayaks up for grabs as prizes. Rent a kayak, fish the tournament and you may be able to take one home!
Casting for Kids- July 19th = Hobie Quest up for grabs

Not saying you can't use the ramp, just that sometimes there are easier spots to launch from in the vicinity.
For instance, launching at Beshel's in E. Pointe a la Hache, I tend to use the sandy area just to the side of the ramp rather than the ramp itself.
Launching at Joshua's in Empire th...

Until I needed a longer one and picked up a Bending Branches Angler Pro.

I like topwater flies. . . poppers work great for bream.
As do parachute adams, spiders, etc.
Slow-sinking spiders, jitterbee's, wooley buggers, and worm imitations also work well for both bass and bream, but they sink. I just like vicious strikes on top as opposed to the bump you get under...

Fly rod casting clouser's or shrimp imitations and stripping it right under the surface.
You will outcatch the people around you 5:1 or even more.
I've found the gummy minnows work pretty darn well too.
