re: So long snapper season...:( - LSUengr
Surveys as mentioned and ROLP app. We do a trip report on the app every time we go out. Document number of fish caught. LA Creel program is what ended up getting us the state control. Way better now than it had gotten with the feds giving us 6-9 day seasons....

re: Tara Wicker can run for Mayor - LSUengr
