Cajun cypress Knees
What was the cajun word they used for cypress knees last night on Swamp Men. I have never heard a cajun use this term.

Ive actually never heard of that. Maybe I did but didn't realize it.

They've always been knees to me

Never heard it before. Probably like most other Cajun French words, some coonass made it up and called it a word.

It's called a boskio(boo-ski-o) (Spelling) in my neck of the woods...Nobody calls it a cypress knee.

When I was coming up, marsh was always called prairie. When I got to LSU had to change and started calling it marsh..everyone though I was hunting ducks in the Mid West

We call the marsh floton (spl?) but no one else knows what that is so we just say marsh everywhere else

We used flo-ton too, what about piefine grass?

Coming up we called Barataria Bay-Grand Lake, fishing out of 4 Bayous was called going fishing on the "sea-shore"

I cannot tell you what Black Bay was called.....

At least not on here. I wish I could find that old map we had from the 40's or 50's cuz it was called that on there.

If that is what is in your marsh that is what it is..of course there are other marsh grasses.

I remember when the coucilman from St. Bernard used the old name in a meeting. As you can guess a shite storm ensued soon after.
