Ma' oil should be here this week, entering East Cote Blanc bay Tomorrow nite or Wed mornin. Big SE winds pushin it faster than anticipated. I have no idea if they have booms out to try and catch some of it. I would think booms won't help much, unless they can make it funnel to an area where they could suck it up. But dats my taughts on the situation. My Specks are on the beach about now, spawning first spawn for next few weeks, shrimp are inside, hopefully all juvy stuff is inside and could be spared from the oil and purhaps survive and continue the linage for future generations. I think we will loose one whole year at least of spawn, and pelican hatchs/seabirds, ect. The stupid Wild life and fisheries opened shrimp season early from west end of my bay westward towards Tx. I think it all should of stayed closed and keep as many animals alive as possible.

I have fished with Joe out there. I love it to see a guy still writing without a slanted ideology or politics. His first love is the outdoors and how to see that it's here for a long, long time.

Also, Ryan joined Robert Twilley in meeting with the US Corps of Engineers about recreating the wetlands around the west side of the delta that oil took away from the levee system that is causing the marshland to disappear daily, even before Katrina. They worked out a plan to hardbank Grand Laird, as well as redirect MIssissippi River sediment outflow, just as it did NATURALLY before the west side levee system was built. They concluded that once finished, the west side could be like it was years ago, in just a few years.

Ray, Joe is a great friend and you are so right a TRUE outdoorsman. The Advocate and Louisiana is very blessed to have someone of his caliber and integrity as an outdoor editor.

I've known Joe for probably 20-25 years, it's cool to see that he's appreciated!!!

That sucks, tell Ryan I am so sorry for their misfortune.

As you can see, we are close too, it all sucks.

BUt at least we know , the brightest people around are workin on the fix, Most educated idiots I have ever seen. I have been sayin from the get go they needed to crimp the pipe, so now they are gona cut it, if they can cut it they can crimp it. The pics they are showing , if they cut rite above the BOP, and it don't work, we are really screwed. THey could of even used gravity and dropped an extremely heavy weight on the pipe if nothin else.

I am just frustrated with the ignorance that is running rampant. On a side note, every living quaters available is rented, they must have thousands of people goin down to the coast. I am doin a rush job now, need to retro fit an old Dinner into a galley, every building on the yard has a PO# asnd every building in South La. is the same.

I suppose we reap what we sow. Environmentalists are the reason we're drilling in 5,000 ft. of water instead of 200 ft. Drilling got pushed way offshore into deeper water because of the possible environmental impacts of drilling. dry.gif

Ray, how is Ryan doing? From the map you posted, it seems for now they could still be fishing, recreationally anyway.

He has 85 % cancellations, which are all fly-in clients. He realized that today he could be open when 30 people fly in for tomorrow and they close the waters down, you know how bad a PR situation that would be for him.

The only ones left are the drive-down clients and they only fill a few boats a week. He has 20 families that rely on his business, bringing people to the lodge. It's terrible and getting worse.

At least with Katrina, the storm came & went, then he could identify what needed to be done and could do it. Even after the "hole is plugged" there's still no end in sight.

Your earlier comment concerning the environmentalists may have been the most profound thing you have ever said,...very true.
