Outdoor Life friend and Venice, Louisiana charterboat skipper Devlin Roussell has been through hell before. Venice was Ground Zero for Hurricane Katrina which completely destroyed one of North America’s finest fishing destinations. With Hurricane Gustav’s sights firmly set on Venice again, we’ve asked Roussell to provide readers with updates on storm preparation. Stay tuned to for the latest on Gustav and how it will affect hunters and fishermen:

“Ray Nagin just called Gustav The Mother of All Storms…She will be a Cat 5 tomorrow.

“The footprint is now 900 miles. We are leaving around 4 a.m.–the traffic is too bad to leave now.

“Nothing we’re hearing is good.”
