    Hate to hear that Chad. But you will be close to the Miss. and you will be in a town that has a winning football team.

    Hate to see you leave but it could be worse.....New orleans don't sound that bad to me, the Mississippi just to the west of you, lake Pontchartian just to the north and the Gulf of Mexico just to the south......sounds like a fishermans paradise.

    Thats how I look at it, the way it looks, just lookin at areas and talking to people, New Orleans isnt the best place in the world to live, got a few communities just east of New Orleans that I think we are gonna look at, puts us a little farther away from the sippi but, still not far enough that I wont go out on the weekends and do some fishin.

    if you end up going make sure and let me know. I can tell you some great fishing and duck hunting (public) places around. At least enough to get you going. Southern LA truly is a sportsmans paradise.

    Whatever you do don't get rid of you catfishing rig and tackle. If you like the pull of a bluecat, you're gonna love the pull from a 36" bull red fish. Believe it or not, I'd rather catch a redfish than a catfish, same as eat one. Catching speckled trout on topwater baits at sunrise out in the sulfer mines will make you slap your grandma. Some of the most fun I've ever had fishing!

    There are some good parishes to live in down there even if you're just on a modest income. I can give you some ideas on that also.

    So much to do in the way of fishing it would take hours to explain it all. If it weren't for having an established business going right now I wouldn't think twice about moving there. I'm almost jealous.:tongue1:

    THanks hookem, i think we are going to look at the slidell, mandeville area for starters, know anything about those areas, maybe Laplace or ganzales also. Who knows, my wife and I have just been looking on the internet at listed houses that are at least within 45 minute drive to work, tops an hour. But I have no idea when i am even heading that way, I will find out more in two weeks.

    You will need to be within 15 miles of work if this is your goal. Just besure that your not driving across town. If your in Sildell then you will have to deal with the bridge traffic to get to N.O. I would get out of Laplace if I was you. Gonzales is a nice town but a good drive to downtown N.O. You might look around Sorento.

    The warmer weather and the Cajun food would be a very big incentive for me to make the move. Fishing for speckled trout is wonderful. Southern Louisiana would be one of the places that I would consider in retirement plans. I love New Orleans and the French Quarter. WE have relocated so many times with the dam Okie's work that it has become a second nature for us. Of course, we maintain our home on Seedtick Crossing in OK and live in our RV while we are on the jobs. For us, it is easier than trying to locate housing. How long do you think this job will last? I have a friend that works construction and she bought her home in Gonzales and loves the area, but as Scott said, traffic to & from work can be a big downfall. We had a grandson that worked in GAryville and lived in LaPlace and it took him way over an hour to travel the 10 miles.
