In hunting and fishing, we also tend to remember the highlights and forget about all the days where success was limited or nonexistent


this.. while i certainly remember the 10 duck hunts of the early 80s - I also remember 2 weeks without killing ANY....

hear the same story from locals. And they all think it's an original story to their dam.



Sounds like the "water-skiing and fell off into a mass of mating water moccasins" story. Seems like there's that story for every recreational lake in the South.

Also I wonder about the actual recorded deaths from snakebites. I know it was common back in the day when someone committed suicide for their family to just say "killed by a snakebite".

Some of these leave a lot to the imagination.

I do know the family of the last recorded person in LA to die from a rabies from a wild animal bite....... and it was a skunk that bit him...

Some of the stories in Marsh Masters make me sad. Like limits before 8am for specs in the Industrial Canal, and 5-7lb specs being the norm.


As a kid, we used to fish right under the old Chef bridge. Not the one they have now. At night, we would catch 3-4 hundred nice trout a night and take them right there to Schwegmann Store the next morning and sell them there.

Used to shrimp in the IC too. Sea Brooke was a hot spot when the tide was dropping. Was a bitch due to tugboats too along with floating piliings that would wipe out a wing net and try to sink you.

My Dad did market duck hunting with a punt gun mounted in his pirogue. Hell, when I started duck hunting, 10 birds were nothing. Would burn off 3-4 boxes of shells each trip.
