Had some time on my hands and invited Medicare Client(Abita KC Member)to join me on a search for T-Funky slabs and we got an extremely early start to take advantage of lighted(underwater light)pier.Launched very early,no fog no gnats no mosquitoes,thankfully.Started at fine underwater light but we got nada and started searching for slabs,started deep-jigging and nabbed tiny sac a lait and dat was it for deep-jigging,started jigging under slip cork(great idea)and stuck a few nice sac a lait on ice,went on search for bass,nabbed and missed a few in lower T-Funky then we headed way N to Bogue Falaya and coolest thing was one instance where my buddy was nabbing nice Kentucky bass(only species of bass we caught)and I was fighting one at exact same time.We then headed to nice slough and had another instance of each of us nabbing fish simultaneously,this time fine slabs.Total for today-6 Kentucky bass and 5 sac a lait and dat is just tip of iceberg.Only two fish had eggs,one fat Kentucky bass and one slab.Great news-I nabbed my bass on Zoom Speed Worm,Ultra-Vibe,June Bug red,Texas-rigged and my buddy nabbed his on dark black/blue spinner bait.He nabbed slab on fly rod(hand-tied wooly bugger)and my sacs fell victim to black/chatreuse tube jig,tipped with chartreuse crappie psychic trailer(killer combo).Can't wait to head back out for plenty,plenty more fine fish!!!

Good job Mande! Looks like our local river getting right for slabs! Crossed bridge on I-12 earlier and water looks perfect right now. Tired of listening to Coronavirus news and ready to get the boat on the river soon! Thanks for sharing the report.
