Just went fishing with my buddy in our favorite hole a pit off the levee near benoit. We put my 10 ft. jon-boat down in the pit and stated throwing beatle spins after about 3 hrs. we ended up with a nice mess of slabs.
CajunSteve: Congratulations! This is my favorite way to catch sacalait and bream, casting with artificial lures. You must have caught them in relatively shallow water; I would have thought the sacs would be in deeper water by now. I sometimes catch sacalait this way at Toledo Bend, usually in the early spring. It's so much more fun than catching them deep.
