Appreciate the responses.
We were talking about lowering laterns down to the water, as well. Is that worth it or are the bridge lights enough?
Oh and white trout, in my experience, taste just fine; just doesn't freeze too well....

Gonna be down in Grand Isle next month for a few days and may fish the bridge at night.
I know there are some accomplished bridge

Also, where are some of the better places to gig for flounder?
I've gigged the beaches and Elmer's Island with limi...

Haven't missed a road game in 6 years and will make it 7 this year, hopefully.
I love watching the Tigers play wherever we are; home or behind enemy lines and we always manage to have a great time.
I can honestly say, I have not had a bad experience (other than losing) on any road trip.

[quote]Also, keep in mind, the batter has maybe a second or two to make up his mind to swing or not.[/quote]
Hitters have a fraction of a second to pick up the ball, determine rotation , determine if its a ball or a strike and then launch the swing.
LESS than a second.

State has played some good teams and is tested.
ULL's schedule is pretty bad. I believe only 3 teams on their schedule even made the tournament? LSU, Bama and Southeastern.
Are they good? Maybe...we bout to learn real soon.
Also, I think they have the lowest SOS in the history of a national...

I tried running with the cap loose and completely off. Tank actually has a small vent built in near the fuel line connection. Thought maybe it wasn't enough , so did the cap thing.
Made no difference.

While running my engine slowly loses fuel flow and dies. The bulb is collapsed. I reprime and run a bit longer (5-10 minutes at a time) before the same thing happens again.
Brand new gas tank and fuel line assembly.
I'm guessing some sort of ventilation issue, but not sure where to...

ULL is in no position to call out anyone else's schedule. Conference or OOC.
Winning a few less games against stronger competion should trump winning more games against weak competition.
So with that said, how much more is a sweep against Georgia State worth than 2 outta 3 against against an S...

And yet by virtue of playing in a premier conference , LSU plays a tough schedule vs ranked opponents at home and on the road.
Yet, a team such as ULL or Cal Poly plays less than 2 or 3 top 50 teams , racks up a bunch of wins and gets a national seed.
Help this dummy understand, why LSU needs ...
