Sports Fishing season devastated before it began by Gulf spill.

By Alastair Good in The Gulf of Mexico. Even though Louisiana proudly boasts of having year round sport fishing, it’s the spring season from March to September that’s most popular with visitors.”We waited all winter for the spring, ‘ explains Captain Keith Kennedy of Born To Fish Charters, ‘and the fishing was good, we were having a great time.’ This was on the day the Deepwater Horizon exploded in the Gulf of Mexico and it wasn’t too long before Kennedy’s sport fishing season was sunk as well.

Captain Kennedy usually takes sports fishermen out off the coast of Louisiana to fish for Speckled Trout and Redfish but since April 20th he’s been out of work.

Other fishermen have joined the Vessels Of Opportunity programme run by BP to help with the clean up but Kennedy feels uncomfortable taking money from the people he feels put him out of business.

There is a compensation scheme available to which he has signed up but like so many others here in the Gulf, the loss he feels most keenly isn’t the money.

Good Morning NOLA!  Hello Saturday. I am really glead you are here. Spring has always been my favorite time to be in the Quarter. The high will be only in the seventies today.  It is great weather to get out and do something. But tonights low will drop into the fifties for tonight so you might want to have a jacket with you later. The  rain and strong storms from yesterday’s forecast has moved through.  It never hurts to keep the umbrella handy even though the sun is back and will stay with us until probably mid-week.  There is still lots going on in the city as usual.  Jazz Fest is just around the corner and the line-up looks awesome as usual.  I will  be at the 1850′s House Store sigining books in a couple of weeks. I will let you know exact dates as I get them. So make plans to come out a get your personalized copies of “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!” and “IF I Were A French Quarter Rat”.  Whatever you decide to do today, enjoy! See y’all in NOLA!

How Long Does It Take For A Letter To Travel From Louisiana to Hawaii??? ?

I bought something online and sent out a money order in a letter/envelope through USPS on Tuesday and my seller still hasn’t received the letter yet. Is this normal? I thought it only took 2 days for a letter to travel between any of the 50 states.

Usually about three to four working days depending on which Island.

Does emeril’s cooking taste that good?

Has anyone tasted his cooking it all the hype for real cause he does things that dont look good & mom has noted many cooking errors from this so called expert. He bothers me thinking that new orleans is the only place for cooking louisiana…shucks that’s the nastiest cookin i’m in louisiana i live there & the good cooking is everywhere else…but he is a yankee…they think hot sauce & garlic are god sents when we cook with more than those and the trinity as he said.

His recipes all seem to have so many ingredients that I start to read them and move on to another. He has never been one of my favorites. As a side note, we ate at his restaurant Delmonicos in Las Vegas and had an expensive, but wonderful steak dinner. We later ate at his restaurant in Orlando – can’t remember the name – and we were not impressed at all. Overpriced and forgettable.

I am traveling to Ft. Polk Louisiana tomorrow and my GPS won’t show directions on base. Why is this?

Is it just something the government does for security?
I think this could be something for security but yet i can look up the directions on google maps.

Well duh…
