First time back to Black Bay since pre-Katrina to fish, so its been a long time. Hardly recognized the area, none of my fav islands were there. Some of my fav rigs gone, etc.
2 of us ended with keeping 36 trout 14-19 inches long, all on artificial. 2 reds. Wind picked up at 10:15 so we called it a day.
Water was chocolate milk everywhere. Lots of driftwood ,be careful when you go.
Did not see one other boat while on water, had the bay to ourselves.
Sweetwater Marina -very nice people and very accommodating.

Good to hear you caught some trout in Black Bay, Water appears to have a lot of river water mixed in.

We did a scientific test of the salinity in several areas (we tasted it) , there was no salt detected. It looked like we were fishing in the Miss River: Driftwood,water lilies,coffee-milk colored water. Miss River has crested & dropping soon so Black Bay should straighten up .
