re: Lake Borgne Fishing - Tigah D
There were shrimp in the slip at the camp down there over the labor day weekend, bait everywhere in the marsh around Lake Borgne. Most slayed reds all weekend with the high water...

re: Teal - Tigah D
This storm does not appear to be the pasture-flooding event we feared. Central and North La basically got no rain from this from what I've seen, everything was well east of us. Good news for next weekend...

re: Saw a dude get killed this morning - Tigah D
Was a guy on I-10 near Nola-East passing everyone going 90+ on crotch rocket few weeks ago, and also doing wheelies when he did slow down a bit. Would not have been all that mad to see him veer off into the swamp...

re: White Lake Teal lottery hunt - Tigah D
have likewise had some good success in the rice hunts in regular season, mostly teal, grays, and specks. Have heard that the marsh can be about as good as it gets during the regular season, guess like anywhere else it can vary by season and weather conditions. Excited to go see the marsh in Sept...

re: White Lake Teal lottery hunt - Tigah D
Also got selected this year for a teal hunt, will be my first time in that marsh. Largely going for the unique experience and to see the property/facilities, but the teal hunting is usually decent. I would think it's best on weekends when there's more pressure in the rice to the north of there, but...

re: What is a Good Pirogue for Duck Hunting? - Tigah D
[quote]I would get a 14’ Ron Chapman and be done with it. I can put two people gear and decoys in it no problem. If a dog is in the equation get a 16’[/quote] Have a pair of Ron Chapman's with the synthetic gunwales (must haves, IMO, over the traditional wooden ones). No issues with gear and dog ...

re: Benelli M2 or Beretta A400 - Tigah D
[quote]Thanks for the input. Just talked to a friend of mine that owns a sporting clays range and has an outdoor show so he pretty much shoots guns for a living. He has several new Beretta 390 silver mallard editions and swears it’s the best gun Beretta has ever made. Can get one never fired for $80...

re: Benelli M2 or Beretta A400 - Tigah D
Feel like I'm fully qualified to address the OP's request: Have always been beretta fan boy, bought my first 390 in '96 and still shoot it for clays and doves. Have owned the Xtrema2 then eventually sold for the A400 Xtreme. Realized I'm just not shooting 3.5" shells much any more and went ahead ...

Snapper rod/reel combo - Tigah D
Do plenty of marsh fishing but never chased red snapper or mangroves, though some buddies have been taking their bay boats to fairly close rigs and hitting them both. Thinking of picking up a couple of combos for future trips, appreciate any recommendations on basic rod/reel set up. Conventio...

re: Who's ready for Duck season? - Tigah D
You need to be checking out deals on shells on Rogers sporting goods website, better than Mack’s I find typically. I’m not ready for the grind of the 60 day season but I’m fired up for blue rockets next month ...

re: Carpenter bees damaging my fence posts - Tigah D
Uhhh no, it’s the bees. Built brand new awning this spring at a rural camp that had bees. Went back two weeks later and it was full of holes, each with a bee working on making that hole bigger, and even a number of spots where they were just starting a new hole. Frick those critters. Used a key to c...
