Decided to try the new pirogue out in the spillway ponds. I landed 5 nice sacalait and lost several others at the boat.

Nice looking pirogue. Did you build it from the Uncle John's plans?

Which ponds are you fishing?
I went over there last week with my kayak and never even launched. Got an old map and most of the ponds I couldn't even find. Just curious cause I wanna try that area.

Here is a link to the map: http://140.194.100.31/recreation/bcsbrochuremay2009.pdf

I fished in Wacko Lake, but many of the ponds have sacalait. I also fished the 10 acre lake and landed this bass.

News and catch. I've been waiting to put my little water scamp into those ponds this season. I did some scouting last week and the water is beautiful. I picked up a few sacs and some nice bluegill (perch)

I will post a pic later. Thanks for the update. Nice boat.

Is it just me or do think the snakes are thick this year in the Spillway

chrisskeet20, thanks for the information. I've been fishing the upper/lower Borrow canals and what I believe is Lake Jacob(no luck). The map will help tremedously.

These are a few I caught Saturday. I've been able to catch a few large sacs (1/32 white and brown beetle spin with gold blade) and will use my water scamp first chance I get.

Nice fish, I used 1/32 jighead black/chartreuse & opening night, under cork 2ft. I also had 5 nice sized bluegill.

I don't have a boat just yet, but I've been dying to catch some sacalait. Do you think I'd have any luck fishing from the banks? Also should I use shiners or jigs?

I've caught a few nice sacs walking around spillway ponds/lakes and roadside cuts off Hwy 51 from LaPlace to Ponchatoula.

You can likely do ok with minnows but my luck has been reaction strikes on beetle spin type 1/32 lures and 2.5 inch cigar cork with a blue jig about 2ft below it. Throw out and an occassional jerk retrieve.
