Sac-a-lait/bream

Looking for help to find spots to fish with my kids for sac-a-lait and/or bream? I live in Kenner, have a boat and wouldn't mind going up to an hour or so away to catch some fish. Thank you for your help.

Not sure if Parish Line Canal holds any sac a lait but should have tons of bream and some fat marsh bass.Launch at Williams Blvd boat launch,head West and it is the canal dividing Jeff Parish from St.Charles Parish,runs straight as an arrow.Good luck!!

City park. You don't need a boat and it's close. I've never caught sac a lait but lots of bluegill and cichlids. If you use shiners you may catch a sac a lait if you can keep the bass away. Lol.

Could try Manchac, but I only fish that dependent on the Amite river level and what kinda wind they have. I’ve taken my kayak out there with little success. tickfaw river might be slightly out of your range but launch at the public launch by the HWY 22 bridge and go to the left from the launch and fish the cypress trees and coves. Watch for gators, I’ve been chased in my kayak there. Just outside of Sorrento, under I-10, they have a mud road that leads under the interstate with a little janky boat launch. DO NOT go if it’s been raining or if you don’t have a 4wd truck, you WILL get stuck. And don’t drive in the grass, I blew a tire after running over some metal in the grass that was hidden until further investigation. Other than that, good luck man

No it’s in Springfield on hwy 22 right where the bridge crosses over the Tickfaw. If you’re coming from the north, the launch will be on the left as you approach the bridge

Probably man, they should start the spawn here in a few weeks if I’m not mistaken. It can hit and miss. Just try all up around the trees. And use a cork. If not you’ll be tying more knots and you’ll be fishing

Kinda hard to beat ole T-Funky with all her numerous knee-filled sloughs(hint,hint)and when ya run into sac a lait masters,like Dave Pizzolato(not sure if dat spelling accurate),ya know ya fishing in de right place.Kinda like de Dr.John tune,Right Place,Right Time,or something like dat!!!Get some Crappie Psychic trailers and Crappie Nibbles and see how de masters do it,trust me,you will be amazed at the difference those slight enhancements make!!Good luck and believe we may be tad early but ya gotta go to know!!!
