Little Lady P Red 6 4 2020

CCAguns and I wanted to possibly sight-cast to some grassbed reds in Lady P and all we could muster was a smallish lil red that gladly smacked Jann's Netcraft spinnerbait.We got an early start,hit some gorgeous grass beds and all we could muster was a fine but under-sized red that obliged by smacking spinnerbait.Both CCAguns and I were mightily disappointed in not only lack of reds but bass as well and we hit the 3 Wells Area,thanks to Navionics chip I installed in Hook2-5 and was actually first time I used the chart screen to navigate to spot marked on GPS/Chart screen via Navionics update.Typically use downscan feature and we had calm conditions but instead of in-coming tide,we encountered opposite,falling tide and dat shoulda been great as we fished an area dat drains marsh via trenasses and we spotted at least 6 stingrays,typically a great sign.We tried different tactics,from gold spoon to spinnerbait to senko worm(CCAguns tossed senko right to nice bass dat grabbed it but somehow slipped hook).I did miss possible fine bass dat grabbed Zoom SpeedWorm,JuneBug Red and I was way late on hook-set!!!Water was pristine in plenty spots,just no willing reds or bass.Might head back tomorrow ahead of predicted nasty weather Sat/Sun!!

If you go anywhere go to hopedale for specs or Delacroix for reds. That’s where the fish are right now. I’ll be in hopedale myself. Good luck

Last Cast,Yep there are lot more fish in both areas just hard to beat beauty of not only Bayou Lacombe especially the upper portion but proximity to home and always got a chance that the reds that were there not that long ago are still there as CCAguns and I saw plenty stingrays plus crabs were pouring out of one trenasse and we did NOT see many mullets. De Wiz texted pics of some specks and reds he caught in Hopedale area. Good luck with de crowds in Hopedale👍
