getting to be you can not find a place to fish bass in houma. they closed lake theriot a long time ago now they closed orange grove. i thought they could not block a major waterway from public use. orange grove is not a man made canal but some oil company bought it and put up a gate so you can not fish it anymore when will all this stop.

They won't they are going to take all the food fishing spots away from us . Just so their pocket book gets fatter . It is supposed to be sportsman paradise but it not . And the government is doing the same thing to us too. Pretty soon they might start charging you to use a boat lunch too.

Do you know where the gate is? I passed today to fish 70 mile an I didn’t see anything down main bayou by well cribbing. I didn’t attempt to go back their. I had saw you’re report an didn’t waste my time. But yes very sad if they close it. Very close to my house to make quick trips.

That’s good. I know the Antil side of orange grove has been off limits. I had seen the signs since late summer/ fall at the mouths of canals. I hope it stays open. Did any good back there? I only got 7 bass in 70 mile.

Nothing in clean water. Last few trips everything been in muddy water. It’s been weird past few months. You would think clean water would be better but it’s not. Caught some on spinner bait an others punching.
