Planning to do some bank fishing ( near Maurepas / Hwy 55 / Old Hwy 51 ) - advice?

Hey guys,

I finally think I've found a place that I can do some bank fishing that isn't too far from home and where I'm not potentially trespassing to fish in neighborhood ponds or park lakes that are always under heavy pressure.

I'm in Walker, LA, and can't seem to find too many worthwhile places to bank fish around here, so I expanded my search, and now I'm looking at heading down near Lake Maurepas, in the canals and areas under Hwy 55, that you can access off of Old Hwy 51.

I'm mainly targeting bass, but wouldn't be upset to grab a good handful of bream or sac-a-lait. Any adivce on lures, better areas to target?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
