    Not the closest to you but there will be a gathering on the red in Bossier City the first weekend in March. The thread is on the Red River Roundup page. I have to work that weekend but there will be alot of people there to visit with. Even a taxi service to the beach!

    lafayette here too.....just switched to catfishing gave bassing up! i got some good spots here, my last fishing trip was in nov, me and the wife caught 4 nice cats, one 12, one 9 and two fours in about three hours, the weather got very windy so we packed it in. been trying to get out the last couple of weeks but the weather aint been cooperating. will go this wensday morning , the wind forcast is 10-15 knots out of the south, but i am getting desperate! and duane, i know the owner of PATS in henderson, he lets me know when he drains his crawfish processing plant into bayou amite.....thats when the fishing is best!

    I am in Louisiana to see my new grandson. I decided to go on a recruitment mission. I think/hope I have two new members ready to join. Time will tell. One recruit is already set, he has an RV and a pontoon boat. but he had no fishing gear. I hope to take him to a tackle store to show him some cat gear. wish me luck!!!

    Hello Charlie, My name is Randall Duhon and I am from Abbeville. Nice to have another catfisherman from the BOC near by. Me and Duane tried to set up a trip together but things kept coming up. I have been working all over the place since the hurricane wiped out our work place and it is hard to plan a trip too far in advance. Me and my wife are planning a trip to the marsh this Sunday if I do not have to work. Let me know if you guys are going this weekend and I will keep a eye out for y'all.

    Hey Charlie, I can smell the fish cooking from here lol. I think me and the wife will be going Sunday but will be docking out of Intracostal City and fishing on the other side of the bay in the marsh. If the bay is not too rough we may cross over to the other side to where you guys will be fishing. I have Duane's cell# and will give him a call if we make it accross. If we do not meet up I hope you guys have a great day fishing. By the way I will be in a white 17 foot center console boat with a 115 Yamaha on it. Talk to you later.

    Hey Duane, sorry you will not be able to stay past noon. We will probably get a late start because the wife does not like the cold very much. May not have time to cross the bay and meet up. Good luck to you and Charlie. Talk to y,all later.
