Got Hopedale trip set for tomorrow,weather-permitting,and was itching to get back to ole-school roots,plus hit plentiful and bountiful slabs and bass on T-Funky and got very early start,well before daybreak and hit fish magnet(she has yet to let me down)and spotted plenty of HUGE sac a lait,trouble was they wanted NO part of Spoiler Shad(guess I shoulda kept de lid on dat SECRET lure)but did manage to nab fat one,first fish of de day,followed up by much smaller one and I could see em chasing down Spoiler Shad only to turn away at last minute(lot like White River rainbows dat REALLY want live minnows,crawfish,etc)but I am dyed-in-de-wool lure fisherman(anyone CAN and SHOULD catch a fish with a fish,not my cup o tea).Did miss a few slabs that seemed to spit out Spoiler Shad,changed venue and started tossing Zoom Speed Worms,nabbed feisty and fine Kentucky bass,then watched line take off right as I cast to base of huge cypress tree(lotta lunkers lurk at bases of cypress trees)and reared back,set hook and chunk of a chunk came up,Owner hook like a doggone harpoon,did not disappoint me and ended up nabbing a few more nice and chunky T Funk bass,biggest weighed right at 3lbs,had one shade under 2 lbs,one shade over 1 lb and right as I got to 3 Rivers Rd Launch,got text from GB3 wanting to know if I was up to taking boat ride down Bayou Lacombe to check out his crab traps(how could I turn dat offer down???).Texted him pic of bass,texted de Wiz and a few fishing/hunting buddies and all asked same question-what did chunk weigh-field guestimated 3.5 but was off by 0.5lbs(maybe it lost a tad of weight since I caught it around 6:10 and weighed it about 1:30pm)!GB3 and I managed to catch almost 2 dozen crabs and he was generous enough to donate almost a dozen to me,thanks,GB3.Got text from Bayoubob dat Big Branch Marsh now gonna allow duck hunts til 2:00 pm.major change,awesome news except dat NOW we will waste even MORE of our hunt days!!!

Nice trip Mande. I may try my luck on either Tchefuncte, Lacombe or Bonfuca a time or two before I bring my boat down to Delacroix for Gator hunting in two weeks. Getting busy with work now and finding the time is becoming difficult. May have more time in the evenings than the mornings. Even if not as productive it’s always nice to be on the water. Thanks for the reports!
