Anyone know any good Catfishing spots around Livingston Parish?

Hello all. I'm a 19 year old student at LSU and needed some stress relief fishing for this weekend. I was wanting to go fishing at Bayou Du Large this weekend for the Reds, but after checking the tide guides (and finding out that its gonna be dead all weekend) I'm searching for a backup plan. I LOVE to catfish, so I'm looking for a good place to go that's not too far from home in Livingston Parish (I live in Walker, LA). I have a 16 foot Bass Tracker that I want to take out for the first trip of the year. In the past, I have tried Lake Marpaus' old bridge, Ticfaw river, and various spots around the Mississippi, but never had very much luck. I love going to Lake Verrett, but I don't know how to tell if its going to be a good weekend to fish there or not. If anyone can help me out on seeing if this is going to be a good weekend for Verrett or Maurpaus, PLEASE help. Or if you have any other places I should check out for some good cats, let me know. Thanks, and good luck to you all!
