Never been. Might go this weekend. Best launch? Warnings? Reports? ANYTHING would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

if you never been to cataouche to bass fish, i'd probably keep it that way. Don't get fooled by Hackney's video. There is no much luck to be had in the lake itself. You would need to try the gulf canals off bayou couba.

Well, I ask cause supposedly my uncle knows someone that said they had been killing them lately. But can't get any help or info. Which is understandable. Haha.

Best launch would probably be signette. A little further run than the pier 90 launch, but that launch is horrible. Always under water.

That video was in the winter before the spawn. To much grass now better have a gps and trolling motor. Reds are being caught all over
Salvador for the past month. Bass fish in am then try for reds should have a good day.

Grass? the lake itself is void of grass. Thats the main reason there is no more bass in the lake. The video i believe was done during the spawn, but it still wasn't in the lake.

Video was in the area of the Wild Life Camp in the Cuba canals.

Out of curiousity, I went ride around lake Catouache this past fall to check out several spots I've caught fish in the past a few years before. There didn't appear to be any grass anywhere in sight according to my eyes and my sonar. The water was also very muddy. Also, did not see a single boat anywhere else in sight in the lake itslef that day. Haven't been back since. Recently I've been hearing that some grass is starting to grow back in the lake. Don't know what kind of grass it is. I also haven't checked it out for myself yet. I sure hope it comes back and gets good again like it used to be.

Be sure NOT venture into the tank ponds! Your motor will get clogged up real bad with all the GRASS! I probably shouldn't have let the cat outta da bag. Don't bother casting either in the thick grass, your lure might get hammered. Release please!!!!

No grass in lake cataouche itself for sure. Need to fish canals off the lake or try the tank ponds

Grass all over that place, probably the best frog and punch fishing in south Louisiana without a doubt
