A good guy on here posted this past Saturday that it is not quite right yet. He said he will wait two more weeks. Talked to a guy at a gas station yesterday, they went and caught a half sack in about 5 hours. Didn't get much info from him other than they used beef melt.

Any suggestion on what I may need to bring besides traps and bait? I am bringing my two youngins (8&9). How deep is the water in the ponds? Will I need a pirogue?

You can stand on the levees and fish from there with only shoes. The water is deep enough to use waders. A pirogue works good, but keep in mind that from where you park your truck to where the ponds are is about 600 yards. You will need to figure out how to get the pirogue to the water. I put mine across the back rack of my 4 wheeler. Before I had an atv we would use our bicycles to ride from the parking lot to the ponds. Less is more out there. Traps (no more than 12-18), bait,book bag(back pack) with drinks and snacks, bucket, stick, and a sack. Any more than that and you will be a slave to your gear. I cut my bait into pieces at my house before I go. Makes things easier. I like to fish the first pond you get to right along the road. There is some concrete on the bank. Fish right there and head down that bank. There's a restroom 200 yards from that spot. Good luck. Have fun. I'm waiting 2 more weeks before I go.

What type of nets do you use if the water is deep enough for waders?
Reply
I use regular set nets. The reason I suggest waders is that around most of the ponds there is a 5 to 6 foot wide 'ditch', or deeper part a couple of feet off the levee that alows them to drain the water from the pond. Alll the water runs to the depression, and the depression leads to the drain pipe or pump pipe location. When it's warm, you don't even need waders. Just a change of clothes when you get back to the truck. There are still plenty of places where you can wear tennis shoes and fish from the levee.

May try to take the grand kids later this year. Would not save money by going. But would like to see them see how we used to catch crawfish years ago.

If you are looking for a place to pass on the heritage, then south farm is the place to do it. The place is huge too. You won't feel crowded or have to worry about getting hit by a passing car. This is the perfect place to teach youngens how it's done.
