re: Humming birds in Shreveport - TaserTiger
[quote]I saw one today and didn't know if they are starting to show up or leaving. How long do they stick around?[/quote] Houston area person here responding. Shreveport probably not much different than Houston in terms of weather. Hummingbirds, in my experience, really start to disappear wi...

re: Schooling bass on Toledo Bend - TaserTiger
Addendum - Reason for moderate retrieve of sinking lipless 1/2 oz. chrome/black back baits resulting in retrieve at about 5' depth is because many of the larger bass in any school are "lazy" and prefer to pick off (gorge) on wounded shad that the youngsters at the surface have failed to swallow ...

re: Hummingbird Swarm - TaserTiger
Hi - I love hummingbirds. I feel the best way I can contribute to this excellent thread is to link a similar hummer thread earlier this year from late April - late July: http://www.tigerdroppings.com/rant/outdoor/hummingbirds-hummingbird-feeders/63086125/ Simply amazing birds. I know ...

re: Schooling bass on Toledo Bend - TaserTiger
Sorry - late to the party. You have tried Rattle-Trap? Something doesn't add up. When bass hit the surface and boil the water quickly get within at least 75' of them. Cast to the other side of the action with a 1/2 oz. chrome/black back Rattle-Trap or Spot. Reel at moderate speed through...

re: Gilmour or Waters? - TaserTiger
Gilmour. No question in my mind. I have never seen/heard anyone play steel guitar as skillfully as he can. He makes his steel guitar seductively "whine" through the octaves in a way that completely captivates and spell bounds the audience. Practically a trademark sound in many of Pink Floyd'...

re: Hummingbirds/Hummingbird feeders - TaserTiger
[quote]I put about a cup of nectar in each so I don't waste a bunch changing it out. [/quote] If you have numerous feeders and eventually get numerous visitors, you really won't have to worry about "wasting a bunch" of sugar water. Quite the opposite will happen. If you have the room in yo...

re: Hummingbirds/Hummingbird feeders - TaserTiger
[quote]Hummingbirds have 2-3 broods in a year so the numbers build as the year goes on.[/quote] Excellent post yourself. Yes, hummers are not only excellent homing birds for the exact location of your feeders but also for the exact location of where they nested the year before. Nesting pr...

re: Anyone Fishing Basschamps Next Weekend on Toledo? - TaserTiger
[quote]What's the smallest boat you would want to fish Toledo? 16'? 18'?[/quote] Great question. Love Toledo. But huge waves come up mid-lake almost without notice. Fished TB 1968 - 1988. Worst I encountered was about 1980. Waves peak to peak about 30 feet. Waves trough to peak at least ...

re: Best riding mower at the cheapest price? - TaserTiger
[quote]I have about 1/2 acre lot and at the almost 44 I am done pushing. Anyone have any recommendations on riding mowers[/quote] Many trees? Very many trees? If so, zero turn (ZT) or zero turn radius (ZTR) enters the picture. That tends to diminish importance of your "cheapest price" criteria....

re: Just wondering about the best LSU team in NCAA sports at the moment - TaserTiger
[quote]I will stick with what I used to know - softball.[/quote] Oh, yeah. It's what I know also. Yes, I did see the Lady Tigers spank #1 Florida in the last 2 (of 3) games. IMO, Florida is lucky they weren't swept (in their house, no less). Is LSU good? No, not really. Why? Becaus...

re: Lets discuss odd bass baits. - TaserTiger

re: I need a new zero turn mower - TaserTiger
[quote]Who's got best deal on a 60"? [/quote] I assume you mean riding and not walk behind or stand up ride behind ZT or ZTR mowers. In any of those cases, 60" or 61" Gravely is still the best. USA built. Since 1916. Kawasaki motor (some Kohler motors available, but mostly Kawasaki). Dual...

re: What are the best months for hot speck action? - TaserTiger
Sorry that I'm late for this thread. Best months, IMO, are Sept., Oct. First cold weather (maybe late Sept.). First real cold "snap" (mid to late Oct.). Go inshore marshes (out of Golden Meadow, etc.). Like you said and probably want to try on your own anyway... I've always had the idea th...

re: Sell me on your go to topwater bait for bass - TaserTiger
[quote]Looks like I need to throw a spook or rogue more often, based on the responses, so thanks for the input.[/quote] Of course, Heddon Zara Spook is a killer. Go, walk the dog. Heddon Baby Torpedo (or even Magnum Torpedo) will always be my favorite, though. I've also caught bass on the Tin...
