Com we and a an inquiry good morning Donald wondering how that alligator were on them via mazes lottery system thanks it is indeed. It is all the book of world on the brink of alligators season coming up very shortly. But that's basically out is I believe it's a five dollar application fee which is nonrefundable. Most people does not as much demand forty if you would think. Most people are chosen in lotteries setup in such a fashion that you're not shields in one year. It increases your odds of being chosen and some subsequent years and they've got a lot of not just W amazement. Some of the wildlife refuges and public property that is available to alligator you know at a featured recently. And wrote a story well a couple years ago when weeks although and of them the TV programs these reality shields about people in. It's the in all the stuff with people nowadays images took off like racing nation law people. Not only wanted to come here and see alligators they want to be the next alligator on. We have a lot of illegal alligator arming it was so many more cases that goes on deep in active. Witten drain who is now retired from department wallet and fisheries agreed that. It was the onset of all of this publicity about delegate bombings glorifying elegant thing that brought about this high incidence of legal money. People in tech time in the check the regulations it is tightly tightly regulated system tanking. And procedures on gaining in and it's just. Don't go out and now it is comeback people. Some cases would do when that other people were charging people logged in tag. You probably heard over the years all the bad boys that I'd Alley in case while it's kind of settled a little bit but now it still very popular. Did you honestly I have dominant. On and it's not as exciting as it is portrayed on television to be. Where you want alligators legally. Because you set dates on the water. You leave them out overnight alligators come optic debates walled well sit down on the bottom line in this comic. When you see the line down on one Google's. Polls that she set out. You pull it up slowly. One person ample in the row the other with a rifle and small 22 caliber rifle. And one well placed shot right between the guys into the skull and the brain. Basically kills the alligator. That's a thrash a little bit bulletin the boat. It's still going to be movement is moles reptiles. Immediately means the only pain and basically it. And that's it that's kind of the extent of it to make this thing it's exciting on Mars deal would marksmanship. It really does. But there's a lot of benefit to mean alligator meat is excellent as many ways to a lot of human side. We used like a pig you examining the squeal at having to run an alligator and the mcdougals to wait so. If you want to restart it but next year go on line at the wallet and fisheries website. All the details there on the lottery. What to do a few chosen which you need the regulations and everything calling it alligator. I also got this one in from Roland. He says here we are often trained dogs in the spill aways in the small block the blow things won't be long now you need to come Arkansas. This year. Can be can be if it was probably. Wouldn't take much to get meego markets in. America and no world after contact information. Good you saw some blowing dust the first sighting of mobile wing panel a year and it's not that far off mid September it kicks off. And got a dog in the spillway that's a great place beltway talking about Bonnie carrots a good place to train dogs actually took one modeled so that was not a tree that was appointments good plays week in Fargo. It ought to adjusted to it. There's a little water there it is a lot of professional cleaners they auctions related news and training. Have fun doing Roland maybe look at the markets on. Noble says. Always love you Saturday Al or she'll start a weekend off for it starts off. I wanna directed to mow web site talk more in detail about all last in agent nation you can see it right there and it says read more. On this kind of recap where we weren't what we did well we caught. It knows so many pitches only things that talk about couldn't possibly get on to wanna remind everyone. Linda coaches who cults the show regularly. I will be back with the so the next few weeks. She was along on the trip for the first time she's a writer from march and by you magazine Judaism's stores becoming some photographs. Would be tales. But we finished everything from offshore. Catch and rock fish silver salmon one's allowed in the resurrection day it was ours finished. We all coddle him the halibut which is at least he called flounders on steroids. The rock fish which alike that's mapped some people called rock asked they'd look now like bass but there saltwater fish. That next trip was for sockeye salmon or reds. Now these guys aren't very tasty. The deal with them is they are in features that basically vegetarians. They don't bite. Sold the method that you've got to catch him is it really is a pretty finesse type of fishing. You get a fly rod. And you stand ore industry more I guess you could do about vote in the house many of these fish that migrating a river as on and that you'd throw line now and you pull back Ian. And as the vicious woman by the line will pass to Louis Malle. And they called this the scene the key as a review where you issue. You flip out there you start strip and back in and then right before it gets to be you'd given a quick your. That would be a hoax if that line is in that issues multiples look into the cord was all that you hook him and you got a pretty good fight. Now if you happen vote in the engine. The dorsal on the top of him in detail the side and you get the Fijian you've got to release. It is a law that it's called line mean. Not so nagging can't snag the issues have actually kept them all which don't do is agree with that all. I don't understand the difference of catching fish in the side the tail in the now one dead fish is dead fish. And anyway we got some pictures oh Linda's hold up a couple of those red salmon got some slow marshaled a use the year. Ago with. Waiters on fly rod in this is that while web page on the outdoors guide dot com. Now just below. The picture of me with those two reds is another red Sam and Osaka. And they look like totally different at the one on the needs is right bright red. With a green if you mutter Ryan described in Lambert as he was on that trip with a and it's not a now who knows but that I'm a big jaw. And there basically inevitable that point the meat it's very why in it it's mushy. When you catch him in the crime that's a bright red meat in it like salmon it's one of the more preferred salmon. To catch oh. As opposed to this real world games on the pinks and the others. We also have a shot at rainbow Trout which capsule float trip. Caller rainbow we got some Dolly Parton got some picked up on the website it's kind of strangled this kind of reminds me a lot of art channel. Although it's a fresh water fish. I'm very hard to hold that they've just got that shake to Ronald and they slipped by and out like it channel. In which caught some rain bulls on that float trip along with. Dolly Parton panels the rape of Fisher also. Call one all was Larry it was Larry call those stock since guys. Very strange to get them to bite that the two that we caught they did by you know hooks in the I guess that's out of instinct. Because they do not you don't. Think that it who knows what was then maybe it was a defensive. And then we closed out the trip to beautiful relation to receive the surprise Malaysia great shot there. And it's also schaeuble war falls and falls all over the place patients or the salmon and place called big river late in a Wolverine creek. As well that war policies show in the war files in the pac war fall in the back. A great trip Asian invasion in it's this year the cost was 369. That if there. I'm Dave Randall on lodging. A couple of meals today they pack you'll lodging at a breakfast and Indians on mute. Everybody's always cooked in the equipment facilities at the lodge. A lot of people walked back to the of them steps to the revenue fish for those reds. In the river when an unknown anything else right on the launch and it's you free to do that they got all the gear you need rods boots and everything's so. Call like cajun invasion and information is there would of the head eco we've we a lot of folks that we had. Tom gill boy his son and his grandson called three times they were from. The Baton Rouge area he went on the very first cajun invasion and then. His son grew up and have another son and they all came back now also from Baton Rouge we had dramatic Stan. Now a father and his three sons me made the trip altogether. It would have been great Thomas mentioned we had. Ray and Larry Fisher wrote a couple of cousins raised from the home Larry's from punch to allow spent two days patient with them. Metairie scanned counseling as a moment. Clive grout wall sold them by U country we had Nelson. We had Wilton gassed on man he was from east now from. As do lack of pollution area now on them by U country he came along. Doc lice from Slidell he had four bodies that. This together from others in the country. We had docked the Mike we demand enough from man to build on Raymond from Metairie. They went with Lyndon and they fished on that keen ribbon lining the reds that sock that day. And then Ryan Lambert his buddy Terry and Terry's wife Dorothea Carmen Bryant want that all of this what you wanna bring new. Why for a spot also to the group of guys they can accommodate whatever the group might be over there. And it's a great time gone fishing lodge. Ralph Kristol and his wife Tammy there's really have great hospitality and they enjoy have in the cages as much we enjoy going there. So will be gone and again next year in the hopefully you'll be able to make it in that get all the details in fact we have a dvd that Chris look cock. My producer of paradise Louisiana put the gamma about the cajun invasion. Ralph we'll send you a copy of that of sentinel broke shoe was accused. The information in the booking dates for that if you wanna go to action typically it's two weeks at asylum had to go to three weeks and it keeps growing. And it's the last week in July for the first group. And the first week in August for the second group are comical and spent time with with both groups so one by two negative on that. We come back after this break in the talk about the east Asian invasion hunting trip that's coming up. Also working on another occasion invasion fishing trip to an exotic area and now what you know as soon as I get all the details on that when squared away also don's Dell today if you wanna go onto a dove on it Barbeque dinner we got that coming up for you. And I also explain why you did not see my fishing game report from Alaska on Thursday night on da vida real television. A day a lot of you. I did those of you were tuning in to find out details about becoming in hired gun to bring some nutrient on bounced. With that Katherine Norman will become an apple bit later on in the 8 o'clock hour. Department lawsuit if you file just telling about that. But picking up on our Kate invasion and armed the reason why we had planned to run a feature on the cajun invasion. Thursday. On 6 o'clock news when Omar fishing game reports from on channel would've been mobile TV. Of course the flooding that took place in the and the fallout from the the problems with the moment sewage water board just dominated them of the news and they pre empted it. They asked me if I want to run on Friday or later Thursday at chose a late at Thursday because. I know a lot of heat tell me that you don't even watch the news is good to present except the sea to fish and game report. So springing it on a Friday the audience would not be ready. So and this common Thursday am going to be fission in Ko victory would cope drew charters. Get this the my friends captain Johnny boy Pattinson and captain Henry in Jim Kessler. And that will be the feature that will be on this week's fishing game report in next week's paralyzed Louisiana. And the following week and gonna run the Alaska take an invasion peace and you can get to see some excellent video and camera work of what we've been telling you about on the radio and showing nude pictures will bring it to life and video. Chris Wilcox well was up there with Meehan did an excellent job of shooting and putting it together for channel. So that's why I did not see an updated fish and game report Thursday it did not because it was preempted. By. Controversy. And collusion and all kind of accusations against it. The wall and sewage water boy lying to the public in the resulting threat of possibility of flooding and still goes on and on as far as that story. All right so cajun invasion next time. Be a year before local back to Alaska spot. If you are harder. And you wanna see some very unique to rein in how something we do not have in Louisiana.

At WL now dot LA. That go or just go to department lost issue website scroll round look for those are actions you'll find the information. Also if you're gonna be dubbed running on some of the appointments properties that wallet management errors they also. And that's just not enough of this stay at least though feels from private owners and make it available for the public but. There's lines that form this more need and want for adult running and now places to do it. But there will be some changes that going to affect this season. We come back from the break a rundown those changes for you also kind of rundown but what's happening in Mississippi you going to be running over there. Or all migratory birds also talked a bit more about that he'll season and also about that that meant that Libya tonight. The Louisiana outdoor writers association convention in awards program a lot of folks walk away towards that tonight. In Mississippi they have two zones north zone opens on September the second. Cell phones will open all also on September the second is a little short runs through September the tenth. Well the first split in the north zone opens on September 2 through October the if you're gonna be honing in Louisiana. On public property. There's been a change. Regarding. The outside shot that you can use. You have to use nontoxic shot which means no lead has to be steel. Or biz and the and the other non toxic shops that Chatman shelves pellets comment. And it has to be a number six small but don't. And the reason they changed this was to reduce. Among led shot. And the potential. Negative impacts and effects that lead has all while life. And they did some research. Recently that shows that. In dove fields and areas around of feels the deposition of let this guy and concentrate. Concentration of lead is elevated in the soil. And that is never a good things so that will be restricted to on nontoxic shot only Ian has to be numbers size six. And small. But don't running on now that's only on Debian base in the least though deals you can still use live shot but doubts on private property no. I've also gotten word that you know continue on a red snapper now I am expecting any day now. That they can shut the season down it depends on. When the harvest quota is reached so far it's it's as good as Batman reached. If in fact it's a fisherman don't get out in in get the number of snap of that allowed. You'll actually be able fission all the way through all of the handle David. September 1 and fourth is the last week and that'll be open you got two weekends of this weekend of course in the next weekend Friday sent in Sunday eighteenth nineteenth twentieth. And in the twentieth it is the 27 and in the Labor Day weekend first and fourth. If in fact this this map or. Harvest quota holes well now they may come up next week insane it's been reached its over and shut about not albeit on the next year. But we'll keep you posted on that as of now. Red snapper you allowed to go along it's two per person going to be a minimum of sixteen inches. Equals when it snapped saga goes on and on in hopefully will be able to get management totally put into the gulf states region instead of from the federal managers who have done just retreat. I. Also wanted to cover what's going to be happening tonight at the Louisiana outdoor writer association. Convention that's taken place in activists Louisiana. Witches up in the Alexandria about midway through the state. Isle Louisiana helpful writers association is. It's a nonprofit organization it's made up both outdoor communicators. Newspaper magazine writers. Columnist at a news photographers cartoonist. Radio and TV broadcast journalists. Book authors lectures public relations specialist. All members of this organization from all over the state Louisiana. On there also some com again should call on corporate memberships on some of the companies that support. Outdoors. And fishing and hunting they have represented who belonged to a and the organization. I guess is best known because we keep the finish records for the state which is very unusual. In most states it's the state agency. If that was the same as in Mississippi or some of the other states department of wildlife and fisheries. Would. Have the records but they don't it's been always been in the hands of Louisiana outdoor writers association. On 1940. Solve all the time ago that's how long we've been keeping eyes served on the current finish records committee. It's Forman committee. While Johnson who was the president of the outdoor writers association. Joseph Michael Russell who's outdoors to for the advocate. General horse who writes for Louisiana sports magazine is a form of fisheries biologist with L issue. And myself we have the four people let's serve on the committee. We get the information is and make sure of the applications get about one record Fisher caught. And we compiled on web site and you can access it to see. Which fish or in which positions we keep. For the most part ten places. On. I'm saying and maybe 88 when nine different species of fish. And what we'd do is each year we make a selection of he should the year we go through all of the fish applications. That would turned in for a given year. And then we select the ones that are outstanding and we do it in a one or two categories sometimes very rarely we don't give 141 category by. This year as in many years past would give one for the rod and reel division. And we give one for the fly. Division. And it's. It's hard to say what's judging I mean generally if you get a first place that not somebody mountain especially the panel longstanding record. As a lot of our doubles and we vote on written. Come to a consensus at present these awards in it will culminate tonight the winners of the the efficient the year awards will be in attendance there in if you wanna see their photographs of their fish and the fishermen. And refer you back to my website you know if you listen this program got at its website up as so many things there that. Uses pictures and video and access to do that we can do in the medium of radio. And it's on to the radio photo of the three winners on the fish of the year for the first place it was him Delanie. Tim is from. A place called drive wrong that he may not know where that is but it's around Turkey creek and so. And anyway it's another big metropolitan urban music congratulate them on a team tonight. He got the 2016 finish of the year award for the raw and real division. That the she's holding as which you'd have to consider a monster blue deal. Blue gills as a rule pretty small fish this one was a full one point 83 columns he caught it and quietly. And it is a new first place state record. So for his high effort to catch that teams. It's the award tonight we give them plaques and they get photographs taken in the riders interviewed them a lot of publicity associated with a so congratulations to him Delanie. On that big blue deal he caught. Now in some cases. On win that deciding is very close on who gets the award. Will give an honorable mention and we decided to do that this year to a Fella named Kyle bowl who's from Texas League magnolia was queries from. He was stationed here in Louisiana out of grand now. And he caught a used battled it 239. Pound yellow fin tuna. Now if you look at the differences. In those pictures of the fish hymns one point eight dream blue deal. And howls 239. Pound yellow -- you'd think diesel way to. How does this beluga whale be as big yellow fin tuna well it's all in the the scale of the Anglo. How long the blue gill reckon this is the first place finish at 239 tuna is not a first place. Believe that sent somewhere around it was made the top ten but not. The top mumbled. And that was the deciding if it's because it was such an outstanding catch Kyle's going to be up there tonight receiving an honorable mention war. The third one is. Economists say Ed note though Pete Cooper. A friend of mine finished with the new Pete for a long time to writers association we fished together down in Venice. Fish MP coop it was a book off that he wrote books on fly fishing really considered him. One of the godfathers and the inventors of fly fishing for salt water and easy. He was donut before it was cool and he was catch and a lot of fish. Memo was with the one day when he caught reckoned. Colby lemon fish on the Bo wins on Iran and unbelievable heat with a finish like that Lyra. But he finished everything from push the top rock creek up in Washington actuary was from. To the Gulf of Mexico and everything in between people love the fish. It was a very accomplished writer. And he'd unfortunately passed away. In between the time he caught witches three point 79. Flounder around is very difficult to catch on flawed economic opportunities. He caught this fish at the Rockefeller. Wildlife refuge near Lake Charles. In 2016. And before he could get there tonight to accept the award Pete passed away so will be presented posthumously up Pete also won an award. At the best of Louisiana at the superdome a couple of weeks ago was there and his wife except that they they award for him to open QB that tonight except the four really great guy that would enemies. Peak oil all three of those pictures are up on the website you wanna take a look at them. I gotta tell you finish that may be in the running. For next year. If station the year there was a big guy to. As a finished that sometimes if you don't look real close with that it's a Yale and but it is actually a different species that we keep. A different set records for in this fish is a 170. Miles. And it will take over first place of a 69 point 25 that was caught out of Venice in one meal lemon. So you know the only one that it trails is a 197. Point 25 that was caught in November. And then a 179. Plus pound that was caught on in June but those in the world wreck it is that 19731. But outside of that. And we Zia on this this could be. The third launches big guys to have caught the Louisiana so it certainly could be in the running. And the considerations. All wanna congratulate Sammy now he was the guy that. Auditing him in ironically enough guy that I know Paul Hipolito. He was part of the crew that caught the blue fin to. Which still stands as the biggest fish ever caught in entered into Louisiana help or writer association record book history. He and his brother Juan Boardman. Ron role in the Texas caught that one member that very well it took pictures of that wrote stories about an animal on this radio program. And congratulations. To all he was not on the rod. He was down Chris hall's both the sixty foot hatteras and efficient now boggle leave the platform real popular in the spot. And San Miguel and grab the Robbie fought the fish that got an in thirty minutes which is pretty quit for fears that size. On biggest two anonymous call was underneath you around which stand up tackle. In unless some in the fight here I don't know fashionable between those again. They will weigh you know what congratulations to him and maybe we'll see him at the outdoor writer association awards presentation next year. Either as I mentioned mainly after. Disconnect offer this program will be pointing beat GMC Sierra or north and headed to now activists Louisiana. That's the side up at the saint in the hotel and neck edition of the convention of the Louisiana outdoor writers association. Where those fish of the year awards will be presented in the fishermen will be on it. Now in addition to that that was says the normal. Association business that'll be taken place of business meetings but there's also many more awards to be presented. And one of the ones that is rarely interesting and I'm glad like it is to see it is the presentation of the use journalism and photography awards. In order for a heart association to. I tried to bring young people keep their interest now in in in media and journalism and photography of the outdoors. We sponsored. A contest by news different age groups for students there's one age group for the biography that's open for every one. And then the photographs I mean the journalist the stories are open to two different age groups and we have a set of judges. Who read in the stories in look at each photo of some of these people on members some of them are teachers and journalism teachers and they judged these on. On the quality of the writing in the topic matter and it's very interesting to see how creative and talent that some of these young riders on fact that maybe. One of these kids that is one over the years obese at noon in this Janeiro with this microphone one day and hopefully they will. And we are always welcome and there. And Iran Arnold wide variety of topics you know when you say helped wars we've had people. Who write about horseback trips and camping trips crawfish being. Of course running in all types of fishing in. I have not seen the winners on there were yet but I'll be looking forward to meeting them in doing that tonight. Well probably pulled some of the rules on my website they'll certainly be on the outdoor writers association web sites you can see those and some of the magazines and maybe the newspapers will be generous enough to publish some of this stories warning. Now we also have oh on toward that and more recently was developed we've been doing in the outward journalism. Cool fifteen years longer. But more recently we have found and honoring young Connors and again it's kind of the same philosophy. If the sport of hunting in sport fishing going to continue.
