re: St Bernard Parish doubles down on stupid with opposition to river diversions - Fifthstring
[quote] The current bed load of the Mississippi River is estimated to be 40 % of what it was in 1920, caused by sediment entrapment behind the many dams along the watershed. This means we have much less sediment to work with. [/quote] Agree with most everything you stated and the above as well....

re: St Bernard Parish doubles down on stupid with opposition to river diversions - Fifthstring
Let me preface this with the fact that I’ve studied this in college, and still do some volunteer work for CRCL. I don’t work directly with coastal folk’s everyday but deal with LDNR, LDEQ, and ACOE regularly. RANT ON! My opinion is this “problem” needs to be attacked on all fronts, dredging, ...

Also - if anyone reading this does the same treatment on a 4 stroke, be sure to change your oil and filter right after. All the "junk" it cleans out can end up in the oil, potentially causing other issues. ...

re: just bought a used boat - Fifthstring
You may not be able to do this because it does not idle, but it's worth a shot to tell you. Google "Shock Treatment with Yamalube Ring Free" Basically you'll need to know exactly how much gas is in your built in tank and mix accordingly, or do what I did and use a two gallon external can. My ...

Inshore or near shore Costa 580G with an amber base green mirror lenses, if offshore blue lens. Also have tried Smith Optics with Chroma Pop lenses and was impressed. I went a very long time thinking I could get by with $50 glasses, when I got into true sight fishing (not casting at tales and ...

[quote] port sulphur area[/quote] Highly likely, shortish run from G.I. and gives up OK bags in spring and EARLY summer. Once the summer hits and the river drops, it can't typically compete with Venice, so folks just pass it up and head to Venice. Do like fishing that area, less pressure typica...

re: La. Saltwater Series Redfish tournament results - Fifthstring
If you want to finish in the money for redfish tourneys, you don't fish around GI... those fish are plentiful, but skinny by comparison. With the weather predictions leading up to it I'm not suprised at all with the low numbers. You have to make a run to catch 15 to 16 lbs from there and the bad...

re: Yamaha 150 vmax - Fifthstring
I wish I could help, but this one is new to me. Sounds like it could be a stuck linkage or cable and not an engine problem. My suggestion is to see if you can replicate the issue in your driveway or backed down the ramp, still on the trailer. Take the cowling off the motor and have someone work th...
