re: Anyone fishing the Cocodire Wahoo Tournament this weekend? - bayoudude
tigerstripedfish69 What kind of boat ya'll fishing from? I do really hope that the forecast is a bit conservative and it doesn't pan out to be as bad as expected. I can't imagine being the one that would have to call this thing. If it happens again next year i may sign up to fish :cheers:...

re: Anyone fishing the Cocodire Wahoo Tournament this weekend? - bayoudude
I have been following THT thread and I can't imagine even attempting to fish in the kind of seas that will be out there this weekend. If by some chance you can manage to slug it out to the fishing grounds the props will be barking over every wave just trying to troll. Not to mention trying to stay s...

re: Describe your best day on the water - bayoudude
I can't remember the date but it was on Father's day weekend when i was in my late teens. My mom and younger brother met us at the houseboat we had in Cocodrie on a Sunday morning and my Dad reluctantly decided to make another trip to last island. My younger brother was whining about going out in th...

re: State Snapper Season - bayoudude
The state season is great if you fish out of venice but not so great for the rest of the state due to the bottom contours. This whole debacle really makes it hard not to be an outlaw. ...

re: State Snapper Season - bayoudude
Until they start including data from oil rigs and wrecks/reefs in the data their stock numbers are total bull shite. There are more snapper in the gulf than ever before not to mention they are huge. 10+ lb fish are the norm now. I also agree that the mangroves and other aggregate reef fish species are...

re: State Snapper Season - bayoudude
I signed up to watch the live webinar march 3 to discuss the federal season. It appears that the catch data indicates not reaching the quota for 2014 if they put a 1 day season into affect i will be extremely pissed. The whole management of the federal snapper fishery is criminal IMO. Gonna be a who...

re: Boating Safety tip: When foggy don't speed. - bayoudude
Looks to be a 39' Sea Vee and my guess would be auto pilot and not paying attention. With the open array radar on the t-top and assumption of top of the line electronics in a rig like that there are really no excuses for this to happen. The operator must have been sleeping or drunk off his arse altho...

re: Anyone ever bought half of a cow? - bayoudude
I have bought 1/4 cow in the past. That was enough to supply me for just about a year. With a 1/2 cow you will probably end up with 100+ lbs of ground beef plus your other cuts it will fill up a 4' chest freezer. It is definitely cheaper per pound and nice to be able to pull beef out and cook whenev...

[quote]surprisingly Jewfish are a shallow water grouper.

Cocodrie this weekend any reports - bayoudude
Looking to take the boat down for the weekend and wondering if anyone has been catching trout on the edges of the marsh or even tried the sulphur mine. Gonna be in a larger boat so fishing the marsh isn't much of an option. If the weather cooperates i might try some bull red action. Just trying to f...
