Well my pleasure we're we're right now trying to get in the state art in. It is certainly got a bit out there and really -- you bet I against. The depression -- digit numbers it -- seem to be a little bit better -- -- large. Show so hopefully everybody is gonna get. I get to what we're trying to get -- try to get do security right. -- well Jerry let's just doesn't appear to be one of those all day -- in things I think we will I don't like to run Boston should be final delay. Right yeah I'm I'm I'm certainly hope I hope all of that -- happen I think it. That that just brings up. Probably break a little bit more -- of the whole trying to post. These guys have now about it decided that when they're gonna make where they've got enough time to make a long road to finish -- -- wherever they go and a lot a lot of guys make a long runs and so it really plays into their strategy and and they they've practiced there and they've they've kind of been. But ready percent but like this but it's true it pitcher rich -- more interest think. Well these fifty guys are masters that making adjustments modifications related figuring things out so little fog is certainly not gonna. Put a big damper on -- stereo again welcome to -- wall as we really love when this event comes here and this is I guess what the fourth time third a fourth time this cement his. You know. It's say it's no longer appropriate new cars. Although -- pretty -- Very typical covered it for television and into the you're -- and so on but because the playing field trip to -- big. He's. That. Maybe it did it curious on a bill of. When Jerry in your in your address yesterday to the media you mentioned that. The coverage is going to be doubled and expanded and you give a lot of that credit to a new renovation I've been covered outdoors for 25 usual on the pioneers in the fishing in television industry. Our policy Internet really changed coverage of of of outdoor events like this. Well there's. There's what are you what that television is they buy back Greg Oden in but I burly Perry do. Yen. They're EP regardless so. Where you're at RR -- I don't hear that. You only get a certain amount it television time and so you can only take it you -- most of -- an hour now the plastic we get a little bit more than net. But so you have to cram everything into one hour ten and you really miss a lot of stuff fuel do you miss. Again you know -- -- what we just talked about all the strategy that these guys are are. Involved -- and -- -- you've been set but 'cause you'd you'd invariably. Focus on the fish catches. In any you have to and so you view missed a lot of a lot all of the really meet at the deal. So but the government did issue I don't know the opportunity to compete in -- military -- -- we can go on the we've got up on the Internet right now -- and be on solid all day or if we want to. It would probably be doing a little bit of that but don't -- really changes I guess should -- issue. More time to do a lot of the a lot of the stuff that is overlooked and in Asia as you know our our our our core -- speech and really wanna know that they're there additionally interest -- all in all the little things that. In the howl so and so -- battery activist albeit -- were able to do that where we just can't do it on television. Well it's great for this event because as you mention is the playing field is so -- but you know there's -- saying has probably been warned out about the Internet has made the world smaller so now this whole playing field. Is made a lot smaller and you can actually take people there they can actually see the catches see the fisherman in the places whether finishing. Because of the advent of the Internet I think it's a wonderful thing and in addition. You know we had at the hotel this morning at 4 o'clock in the morning I was up with what a bunch of our Internet guys and they were. They get no cranked -- they were that they were gonna make the drive to produce. Air and as opposed to make that big long boat ride they were go to already being there and try to be in the different spot -- To get ready for the freshman to come available most -- -- -- and you know we also have. Well look technology. Be able to figure out where these guys are bad. In and course that's the big pay cut deal as well they have where where -- are not heroic in the failed kind of follow what little -- But there we can get the media in -- our Internet gaming of the and the television game we know whether that we can go right to that's the that's a big deal. There's no hiding or so -- that's our community and an -- enterprise -- Jerry you know wanna thank you again for coming -- also special thanks for incorporating. The -- the -- with the National Wildlife Federation land -- you know local guy with Louisiana -- -- senator Chris Michael those so.

On a foggy Friday morning are kind of a bass master classic on the weekend. Which are my thoughts right now to us some of the fallout resulting from the BP oil crisis that took place last summer on into the fall here among Gulf Coast area joining us now a state senate to David did -- David good morning thanks for joining us. Good morning I'm gonna do it is a dividend does so many issues you're involved in right now are three of them come to mind them all -- to Venice project funding pull -- also Obama administration denying there is of the fact gold drilling moratorium in the gulf and now we hear people say that -- -- that -- has not pitched the issue permits. Which is shocking and we've also got thing in Kansas a scathing letter critical attitude. Mr. Feinberg so we have got building I'm guessing coming all the later on a real -- third time constraint so we'll talk to him about the the -- was to Venice Roger funding situation but I like -- to address the other two. First saw a few meeting with -- bomber which is bureau of ocean energy management regulation and enforcement which is the replacement of the MMS you've met with direct the brown which about the drilling permit impasse what was the results of that meeting. Well unfortunately not much you still think I have that same attitude. The whole administration. He had done over a month. After the Deepwater Horizon explosion they're still not a single not a single people are worker permit both Spanish and and it is they shut down that in the de facto moratorium. He says exactly otherwise by the traditional all feeling it along because. And in our Louisiana economy and that's why I had to take the extraordinary but I think necessary action. To put a hold on President Obama is the newest nominee to a pop ranking position. In the Interior Department. Leverage that the -- look you need. Issues these permits in a timely one how long now hold. Well. A -- doesn't mean I can block it. Forever it means that in order to confirm. The nomination in the senate without my cooperation. That if they would have to eat up a lot of -- probably about three days. Senate floor on which is -- very scared commodity. So it is significant and I'm looking at any other tool and the other leverage available to put pressure. On the administration. To demand that day issue deep water exploratory permanent. Well hopefully they'll come to recognize what the economic impact this is to both our economy in the nation as a whole. Absolutely until and I know if you noticed there was very very significant court ruling just yesterday. That's actually ruled against the Obama administration. And mandated that they issued. The first five deep water permits lined up with -- thirty days and said -- -- in America it's so bad -- contrary to law. Well they don't seem to listen the judges too well though but I did -- go have some impact. Let's switch to mr. Feinberg for a moment -- I can't believe and I'm reading here. A BP is saying he is too generous because he is artificially inflating their future expected losses is that just. Some of the stage acting now we've been seeing BP trying to show that. You know they're not happy with -- -- he really between Iraq and -- -- -- nobody else is happy with him on the other side. Well I don't you know BP is paying imminent harm 850000. Dollars per month. -- So I'd be able upon if -- as overly harsh to be pretty. What my letter that was something different it was an -- comes down on individual cases. It was just his responsiveness. To claimants from constituents. And I pointed out that lots of people stood up right before him -- in his sport Louisiana town hall meetings. He promised those folks he would look into their cases. And follow up. And he just didn't do that in none of the -- but I'm aware of did he do not. I don't even believe they were serious enough about follow up that -- and staff -- Their name and contact information. Before that left the panel meaning and that senate about the case mr. Feinberg a -- you can prove otherwise. You know what some money back because those were at least three wasted day completely wasted days. And make your rate of pay that 402000. Dollars. -- -- 850000. Dollars a month 12% of that would equal 102000. Think that's a very fair claim and statement to make. Certainly I you know he's gonna earned the title on the new artful dodger meanie gets on here and you know he makes promises he doesn't key because of the town hall meetings he ducks and dodges. Elected officials like his cell and in the we get this news that BP he's not -- because he's given too much money away. I think that's just some stage acting going on right. Well David you gotta run any final words I -- these two issues before you go. Now I'm certainly going to be fighting following up on all of these issues and eleven situation -- of the gulf she'll be talking to Billy about it. I'll be following up with Europe and our delegation. I appreciate it very much David thanks I -- And a US senator David -- are talking about two big issues affecting us here in Louisiana getting people paid their just -- from. I'm mr. Kenneth Feinberg and head of the GCC Alfaro with the results of the oil crisis and then also this other issue where the director Bromwich. It's saying that that's not their job to do you think she -- building permits oil. Well that doesn't it's not them. 260187866889087. Anyway got day in and Joe will be back to talk to them right after. As New Orleans is Killen on the lake front on the big day 71053. -- I saw if you don't like 63 pounds of field the -- -- shrimp all 1575. Jumbo shrimp. Every day. For five years and still not exceed their health risk for contamination -- -- -- under the UPD five pounds of Louisiana oyster meat which is about a 130 individual oysters. Every day for five years still not have any health risk or nine pounds of Louisiana fish that's 188 ounce fish delays. Per day for five years and still not exceed health risk that is the results of the department of health and hospitals examination. Of contaminants associated with the BP oil spill. Some folks -- Louisiana bucket brigade general is going to be -- a bit later on she's not quite so sure that they can make that statement. -- all positive and surety about will talk more about that -- Pacino is also gonna -- and tells how those results came about. Or asking you to cast your vote on how do you feel about Louisiana seafood now days. About the same amount -- still being consumed that's 80% of you. -- only 2% -- eating less than before the oil spill. 10% actually revenue increased they're reading more and 7% say they don't need any seafood at all. They -- I was at the media day for the bass master classic yesterday and they served our. Some oysters on the half -- Some fried fish for ways and also some fried shrimp and renteria works is excellent glad to see anybody backing away. Other suck -- Joe listen to listen Springfield long line 1 Joe good morning your debit -- That mormons don't play it -- -- your -- -- -- all it's pretty terrified now you can I played their ability what I. Know more than probably. Oh god fifty yards if that. It's not like you can't say maybe I got them maybe Otterhound. -- open breaks for those fishermen before they gets. Well I've got me worried I've made a statement yes they mean when I heard about just trying you know someone got. May wanna consider alternate routes and you can -- closer. You know whether to make -- long run -- of -- down at oak tree went down with -- -- -- 2015. -- -- about certain amount ultimately get -- that was going to clear.

A little bit lower level watch out for our men and hopefully will get -- we're getting Greg hackney Alvin LA -- He's spared Lee with a waters and then nannies are the best. Plastic -- treatment on open you know in the US so hopefully read below to Elena. He's one of my choice is do you think's gonna take it all -- Well if half outcome.
