Violet Locks Bass Fishing

Reply
 
Decided to head to Violet Saturday morning 7/18/20. I launched off of Paris Rd in Bayou Bienvenue and made a run to the violet locks. The tide was coming in hard through the locks making it difficult to stay in one place so I definitely recommend having a good trolling motor when trying to fish around the locks. I caught 15 nice bass keeping my limit and throwing the 2+ pounders back. All were caught along the rocks and pylons around the locks. Caught most of them on a xps z-popper and the rest on the saltwater assassin “salt and pepper green tail”.

Good video and nice haul. Poppers are deadly this time of year.

Thanks for the video. Brought back lots of memories. Used to catch limits of speckled trout right there by those locks back in the ‘90s. My PB trout also caught in the ‘90s just across the MRGO from there by the castle. Had several friends with camps there on the horseshoe. Lots of good times. Thanks again for sharing
