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…

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

Looking to upgrade/revamp my rod and reels set ups. Want about 4-5 set ups to cover most bass fishing techniques in the south. Mostly Spillway and Venice fishing. Looking for some 300-500 dollar combos (or less). Love to stick within a brand if possible. Let me know, love to hear some opinions.…

Got the call from a life long friend on the bass running, knock the dust and bees nest off the Gator Tail, 3 limits by 9am, two boats, Chug Bugs and Speed Craws bait of the day, Spanish Lake Area, Cruised the area a bit, not a lot of boats out and about, Gator Tail preformed flawlessly, Great day…

A morning trip on 06-30-2020 to Manchac's North Pass.

I launched at Bayou Liberty Marina this morning and made my way to Bayou Bonfouca for some Bass fishing. The plan early was to work the grass with a frog for bigger bass and boy did it play off! I caught 4 or 5 good bass including a nice 3 pounder I released. When frog bite slowed down I went to…

False River is high and muddy and bass fishing has been tough this weekend. Only managed to catch 6 bass in 3 mornings. 2 fish caught on a black Picasso buzz bait with red blades before 7am. Other 4 were caught on a pb&j chatter bait. This lure is now my go to muddy water bass catcher.

The water is much better this weekend than the last. Bass are chasing shad and I was able to fool them with a live target golden shiner. Caught several 10-11” fish but did boat 5 between 14 & 17”. Should be good fishing this week between the rains.
Steelsprayer : Thanks for the report , any reports on what the stripers are doing ? 🧙‍♂️🎣

Bassin has been a challenge this weekend in false river due to muddy water. I tried 14 different lures and finally started getting strikes on a pb&j colored chatter bait. I had to put a trailer hook on it to get the few I caught in the boat. Tough fishing.

I'm a biologist at LSU and am trying to locate populations of Gulf Pipefish in Louisiana lakes where the species has been reported in years past - Lake Bruin, Lake St. John, and False River.

The pipefish require grass beds and other submerged aquatic vegetation.

We head to Eden Isle, LA for some Bass fishing. Started off fishing top water early that morning catching two bass. I then decide to switch to a Saltwater Assassin which really paid off. I ended the morning catching nine Bass and keeping seven.

A morning trip to Bayou Liberty in Slidell, La on 05/27/2020

The bass are chasing Shad in the cypress cove canal on the north end. White spinner bait with gold blades produces fish early and late in the day. During the day with the sun out, head to the Chenal canal and use a grape worm wacky rigged with no weight. At night the booyah red ant spinner bait…

A buddy and I decided to make a trip to Lock 1 this morning. I have always heard good things about the bass fishing there so we gave it a shot. Like always, fishing a new area, it took a little while to figure them out. We managed to catch 4 decent bass with a few missed opportunities.

We head to Bayou Cane for some bass fishing. The fishing starts off slow trying to figure them out but when we do its none stop action. We end up with 13 Bass and 1 Redfish.
Nice video looked like a great day for fishing 👍

From dusk until the sun comes up, a wacky rigged grape worm under the docks is catching bass. After the sun comes up, head for the canals on the south end with a sexy Shad crankbait. Good fishing.
Steelsprayer : 👍 Thanks for the report, will call lil bro and let him know, lives 5 minutes away from launch in town🧙‍♂️🎣

We head to Salt Bayou for some bass fishing. Got a early start in the main bayou with no luck. Decide to head down the bayou that runs along Hwy 433 all the way down to the bulk head. There I find moving water, bait, and Bass! End up catching 8 bass and keeping 6.
Nice trip,have heard from a few folks that routinely fish Salt Bayou that she is loaded up with fat marsh bass.Too bad there is no longer a decent launch to use unless ya got small bateau.My 16 by 52 Southfork may be tad too big to try launching off side of road!!
