Not the least interested in fighting crowds at Mardi Gras,so me and Medicare Client(also fellow Abita KC Member)and I decided to see if dem fine and fat T-Funky slabs might make their presence known and we were the second boater launched this am at 4th St Launch.Water did not look too bad and I tried some fine Lunker City Fin-S fish(2.5 inch versions)and some very fine Lunker City grubsters(2.75 inch versions)and I added Crappie Psychic trailers in chartreuse and added glitter Crappie Nibbles but none of my presentations enticed a doggone fish to bite,sorry Me-Quan,no Gou's were caught and they are NEVER caught with lures as fine as Lunker City makes,maybe if ya use some dem local lures ya might entice a Gou to hit em!!!My fishing buddy started out with 5 wt fly rod and a hand-tied wooly bugger and he nabbed a fine slab dat I netted for him and I did manage to have what was most likely a nice bass slip worm,hate when dat happens.We chatted with bunch of fishers and none had more than a few fish,did see gent deep-jigging our first spot and he nabbed at least 2 nice slabs.Difficult to deep-jig without getting snagged way too many times!!!I got bored with lack of sac a lait action and we hit bunch of spots that HAVE produced some mighty-fine slabs but not today!!!Probably gonna seek some saltier fish next week,depending upon which day(s)look the most promising.The T-Funky needs to clear a tad but at least a few folks took home some slabs today!!!
