Default Bayou

I know several Saltycajun members also post on Bayou Bucks.

What is going on with the BB web site? For the last couple of days I get the message "Service Unavailable".

Does this mean the web site is shut down? I hope not..... the people there have been a good source of information for hunting in Louisiana.

Has anyone seen any information about this?

Almost bet it finally came to an end. There's been a lot of problems with that site in the last year, and it looks like someone finally quit paying the bills.

Yea, it?s a bummer bc it wasn?t a bad site. Speaking of, I know it?s a slow time of year for fishing but what?s up with the slow traffic around here? I love this site and post my trips (no matter how bad) but it sure is quiet around here (other than the two SE LA guides that post redfish limits daily).
Anybody got a report to post from the S/SW corner of the state?

We need to get fishing reports and traffic up on this site. The problem is the people that post a lot believe that there activity brings more crowds to the fishing area.

I was just saying this the other day about forums in general. I feel like the time has come where people are fully realizing the effects of posting reports to forums. Their places become crowded and the places they loved are now an aggravation instead of relaxation. I say this because lasmag has about as much traffic as this site does and it used to be the Walmart of outdoor forums. Everyone used it. There were dozens of posts on that site daily. You could spend all day on there reading new posts. Now it’s identical to this maybe even worse. The same two sponsor guides are the only regular posters there too. Simple outdoor questions go unanswered for weeks. The latest posts over there only turn over about once a week or longer. If I check latest posts on Monday, the latest post will be #4-5 down by Friday. And that’s because of the guide postings and usually a scam post. I think the days of Internet forums is coming to an end. When you go on there and catch crap about the stuff you post because your deer was too little or you caught too many fish or whatever then add in the added traffic to your favorite locations, it’s only a matter of time before you stop posting info. That’s just my opinion to the situation because it seems to be a common theme across the forums right now

All the fishing report groups on Facebook have taken the place of websites. Those Facebook pages get dozens of posts a day. Although it?s usually just a picture of the fish and no report to go with it.

Yea I believe bayou bucks is gone. Sad to see. Sorry to say I don?t post much on here either. I like the site but I kind of feel the same as most who post on websites and see the full repercussions of those post. I don?t have Facebook either. I?m not big on people knowing my every move. My wife has finally come to see the way I see about Facebook as well. She got rid of hers finally. To much drama and we thought we didn?t want our kids to see us using that as they grow up and for them to think that that kind of social media is normal. Hopefully they can make their own decisions on that when they get older. Better decisions.

To me the problem with big lake is it's so small there is no secret holes just a matter of if the fish are in the holes and if you catch them and post it the next day there's 10 boats there. I have not fished in over a year but the report and pictures are nice to get me by.
