re: 2012 Honda rancher problem - Tigah D
After market tires notorious for getting flat spots when sitting up on firm surface. My MudLites definitely do the same thing; I try to at least move the bike around a bit when it's sitting up...

re: Fishing a Leeward vs Windward bank - Tigah D
I find fish to be less spooky to a splashed cast on windward bank as well. Generally when fishing reds I'll err to the windy bank but have caught them on glassy bank as well...

re: Need help with boat electronics. - Tigah D
have had variety of plotter/sounder units and used to work in marine retail. Garmin is far and away more user friendly and for your type of set up I'd go with what was mentioned above here, a 541S or or get a larger screen if you want but it'll do what you want as far as GPS and fish/depth finder. ...

re: Ever called 911? - Tigah D
Once, came upon boat going in circles out in Lake Pontchartrain, no driver. Eventually found that he was being dragged behind his own boat with a rope tied to his leg, DOA. No life jacket, no kill cord. ...

re: La to Fla boat run? - Tigah D
Yea that sounds ideal; easy deal in larger boats but seems like the OP (and myself as well) is interested in doing it in a smaller boat. Guess we'd likely be inland already before the Destin pass so shouldn't be an issue. Thanks to those chiming in with experience in the area ...

re: New outboard motor? - Tigah D
The F115 from Yamaha is generally considered bulletproof, been out since early 2000s and predates their F150. I'm not a merc fan at all but a buddy works at a dealer and keeps telling me they're much improved over my days working at a yamaha/merc dealer. Yammys on all my boats over the years and do...

re: La to Fla boat run? - Tigah D
Yea I thought the destin condition, much like any tidal pass, would be worse with an incoming tide and a north wind, or outgoing on a south wind. :dunno: When tide and wind disagree here in La it can make even routine bayou mouth passages interesting at times. ...

re: La to Fla boat run? - Tigah D
yea I could see the gaps in the islands getting interesting with good swells coming in off the Gulf. Been kicking around trailering the boat to Gulf Shores for years but wonder if half the fun may be taking a day or two under good conditions to bounce over that way along the coast. ...

re: La to Fla boat run? - Tigah D
For those who have made the run, how much protection do the islands afford? I've run from Pass Christian to all over the Biloxi marsh and haven't issues.....on decent conditions with a light S/SE wind. Why wouldn't island-hopping your way to Mobile Bay be similar? ...

re: La to Fla boat run? - Tigah D
In looking at the route on google earth, it looks like you'd be in pretty good shape either on a north or south wind. North wind hug the coast, south wind stay inland of the islands like Cat, Horn, Petit Bois, Dauphin, etc. till you hit Mobile bay then jump in the Intracoastal on east side of Mobile...

re: Topwater Bluegill Fishing Advice - Tigah D
Definitely go with a floating bug of some sort. We used to slay some bream with Miss Prissy's and other similar floating poppers. They're suckers for anything bug/critter-like wiggling on the surface A fly rod is ideal but we did it as kids for many years with regular spinning rods. Watch for tre...

re: Update Page 5: Boat Prices listed online - Tigah D
Will be 100% honest and tell you upfront that, no, I have never ridden in one. I have, however, crawled all over them up and down, in and out as a good friend of mine works for a dealer. They have a few bay boat models, one looks exactly like the old Sea Pro's and the other has a huge "Carolina Flar...

re: Update Page 5: Boat Prices listed online - Tigah D
[quote]I fish a 19ft Nautic Star and go out to Bay Eloi and Black Bay with no problem. If it is that rough that a 19 footer will have trouble out there you won't be catching fish anyway. Everybody wants a bigger boat, but you need the boat that fits what you are looking for and what you can afford. ...

[quote].....mostly a result of spring rain[/quote] This. Most figure with all that snow it would make for a big rise, though maybe not this year, but it's really the spring rain storms that give us the big rises down here. I'm hopeful for no Bonnet Carre openings into lake P...

re: Live crawfish Prices right now? - Tigah D
With this rain today, the crawfishing grounds are about to undoubtedly get "too wet" and thus drive prices back up. :lol: That said, this weekend into next week looks fairly mild so hope to get the critters coming out their holes. ...
