Morning bass fishing trip. Excellent water clarity. High water finally going down.
2 spots, and 2 limits.
Senko and white spinner bait with the white willow blade. One the sun came up it was all on the Senko pretty much.

Because he doesn't want everybody and their momma running all over the area trying to catch fish. At the very least, he doesn't want a bunch of people emailing him trying to get the info 'privately'.

Hey I get it, I've just never been one to mind saying I put in at pigeon, or bayou black. We weren't asking for a dot on a map... but to each his own...

And there's nothing wrong with asking at least that much.
I would sure love knowing that people are catching fish at Lake Verret or say Stephensville before hauling a boat that far with gas prices like they are.
Like you said nobody's asking for a dot on a map or GPS coordinates!
I don't even care what they catch em on.
Just an honest idea of an area...not the exact stump or tree... Lordy!!

Yeah I agree, but everyone is different. Bass anglers in particular. I guess I'd rather a guy not give me any info rather than the wrong info... I've had it done to me before... I guess we'll just keep admiring the fish Mr. Lowe shows us...

joebuck - why should anyone tell you where the fish are biting? Before I go further I will say that I have both asked for help and given help. But, why should someone help? It is good to help others, absolutely. But helping others, especially when it comes to fishing, usually gets you screwed. Too many people these days wait to be told when and where the fish are biting instead of figuring it out for themselves. If you don't believe me, wait for Joe Macaluso's report to come out in the Thursday Advocate. Then, go to where the report says the fish are biting and look at all of the people fishing off of a report. Look at conditions. Look at river levels. Look at the particular time of year and make an educated guess at where your best options are. If you are concerned about how much money it will cost to trailer your boat to a destination and come home with nothing for the freezer, may I suggest going to your local seafood market and purchasing your fish from there. It will help stimulate your local economy and it will surely guarantee you have food for your family. And, it will cost you MUCH less than actually trying to catch them on your own.
The last time I helped a 'buddy', it really backfired. I had been on fish and this buddy asked me to take him. I took him and we hammered the fish. I go back the following weekend to find this same 'buddy' in his boat and 2 of his friends in their own boats sitting on the same spot raping it.
Too many people want handouts. Too many people correlate the success of their trip with filet poundage. Too many people think the only way to have a good time and make a trip worth going is to put fish on the table.
Conversely, if you look at the coloration of the fish, it should give you a good idea of where those fish were caught.
One last thing, catching fish that somebody else is catching is extremely difficult to do. Especially in this area of the state. Conditions change daily. The bite changes daily. I started having much more success when I started keeping a log of all my trips. I make note of the corresponding river stage (whether it is falling or rising), the weather, time of year and any other variable I can think of. This keeps me from having a busted trip.....sometimes lol.
Good luck. Catch fish. But above all, just go fishing!

I also keep a log of my trips. The posts here are for a photo record of that journal entry.
Love me some bass fishing. There are times I go that the bite is slow. This evening will probably be one of those days as it will be ESE but it is a pretty good outgoing tide. I plan on leaving work at 2PM. The area I fish is South Louisiana :)
The key to success is to fish outgoing tide. Fairly clear water, overcast skies a huge plus. Windy is good. Fog is the bomb. Overcast, fog, and wind...well that right there is a blessing from Thor.

I agree with what yall are saying. Alot of people might not but I do. Keep on catching em Lowe. It will give me motivation to go find em. And yes I payed attention to the color of the fish and I know they didnt come from muddy water. And I throw most if not all of the fish I catch when I'm in my boat. I might head south in the AM...
