My boys and I decided we needed some yak therapy and had gotten some intel dat there may be some willing participants in the form of some fine reds out in de Lake possibly within fairly easy yak reach and we found only a few with none coming home with us as I boated a fine lil red,possibly 12 inches long,quickly released him and had one probably 14-15 inches but he quickly spit de Bomber Spinner Bait and my older son caught one,14.5 inches and had one probably 17 inches but lost it right on side of yak and my younger son had a few swipe at the Bomber but no solid takers and my older son spotted a manatee and tried to take clear pics but the big sea cow not clearly visible in cell phone pic.I did nab a nice bass of about 1.6 lbs and he made de trip home with us.Headed back tomorrow,gonna do our best to nab a few and my older son met a gent that showed him his solo limit of reds and advised that he caught probably 35 reds today,no reason to doubt this gent and we have a good idea of where to head tomorrow.Water not looking too bad,particularly alongside the shorelines and Bombers glide through grass like a weed-eater!!

A co-worker of mine has been doing good on the reds around the black river outlet West of the lighthouse. He's using a black split tail grub on a lead head bouncing off the bottom back to the boat. Hope this helps and good luck. Lake P had been peaceful lately with this hot weather.

Steelsprayer,My older son and I returned,found strong SSE winds causing nice rollers in Lady P and with yaks not gonna happen that we would venture past the mouth of Bayou Lacombe.Did run into fellow Knight and his wife in their new boat and they caught a few reds yesterday and likewise heard some glowing reports from the E side of Bayou Lacombe.Might be headed out there this Wed with a Medicare Client,winds and weather permitting and think if Lady P allows,we should do well on reds with gold spoons or Bomber Spinner baits,think the exact one I toss is call drumbeater and bass,flounders,reds,etc nab dat bait.My older son had a small flounder swim from bottom and swiped at Bomber yesterday.Did run into Bayou Lacombe and Goose Point regular and he had 9 bass when we chatted,watched him catch #10 but it was a little guy and he quickly released it,no doubt he caught his 10th one not too long after.
