Under the Front
Fish Report: OK, no PWC story today, but I did get to take my dad fishing in the bassboat. He'll no longer go by himself... it's an age thing. We left this morning despite the weather forecast about a cold front pushing through SoLA. Trekking across the Atchafalaya Spillway, we timed it right. Just as dawn was breaking, and halfway into our 30 minute boat ride, we found ourselves directly under the approaching mass of cold air. We buttoned down the rain gear and spent the rest of the AM in Grand Lake. The bite was light and we only caught about a dozen bass - none large enough to make the cut (14" minimum). At one of our favorite spots we spotted a sign put up a tree to mark this year's record flood. We estimated it to be near 18 feet over the current water level.

What a shot!
Wow man I didn't realize you were a photographer???? What an awesome shot you have there!!!!! Did you doctor that pic up? I wish I couldve seen that myself! NICE JOB!

Hey Tim, thanks for the compliment. I only very slightly enhanced the color (but I did not change the color), b/c I captured the first few picks right at dawn; it was quite dark behind me. I actually didn't think I had enough light to get those shots and that was from sitting in a idling boat.
I take my camera everywhere I go- and I do mean everywhere.
BTW, how are the fish biting for you? We still need to hook up... Ever go after Triple Tail in the Borne/ Pontchartrain? I saw a show the other day and it didn't look like hard fishing if you caught the water flat enough.

To be honest, I've never even heard of triple tail. As far as Lake Borgne goes, I went a couple of weeks ago and caught 17 trout and 3 reds back in the marsh. I don't think you would like coming to this spot with me cause it's a little shallow depending on tide. I need to start using my camera when I go so I can post some pix. I just never think about it til I'm on way home.

I know how shallow the reds'll get. But don't mind idling around in 4' or so. Yeah, man - bring that camera and "show" us a trip report.

I used the camera "feature search", "side by side comparisons" and "reviews" to help in the process.
The only drawback I had to my camera was size & weight. But that has changed in the last 5 years. I can tell you that I've dropped my camera off a cliff, left it in a cave at 100% for hours, and have gotten it wet. The rubber grips are falling off, yet, it's still taking pix. I have really abused that piece of hardware...
I love my camera, but they don't make it anymore; it's been redesigned and formatted. Before making your purchase, you have to decide what is the most important feature(s) you want in the camera and go from there. That is how I settled on mine and it was the right purchase for me. My purchase was based on the following in order of magnitude: Megapixels, Manual Optical Zoom, Price, Unlimited Video (w/change in depth) & Optical Stabilization. I love my Panni...
Go to DP Review, it was the "green hulk" of cameras (for me).
Edit: Checking out the link above, it appears the FZ150 may be the successor to my camera: http://www.dpreview.com/products/pan...sonic_dmcfz150
There are tons of cameras w/never ending features... do your homework.
