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”.
