Tried Spillway this morn around 30 inch Canal close to Adams Landing, Bayou Long and Bayou Mallet/Old River area. Was surprised to see the area was completely void of the grass beds that protrude from the shorelines! It is these grass lines/isolated clumps of grass that typically hold the forage and in turn the sac a lait. At this water level (around 3.5 at Morgan City) I would typically be loading up on sacs and today I struggled to get 16 by 3:00. Are you guys seeing the grass beds in other areas of the Spillway? Is this a consequence of the snow this winter because I pray it is not the dreaded apple snails. The salvinia certainly survived the winter.
