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!!

Is it just me or has there been a flood of people on the water with this Covid-19 BS. I have never seen so many un-ethical boaters in my 40years of fishing. I work a rotation so it gives me the time to fish weekdays to avoid the crowds but that has been a thing of the past lately. DO NOT PULL UP…

I know how you feel. We were fishing in vermillion bay with my family. And we were catching fish then a crab boat with his family comes right on top of us the fish quit biting.

Bass fished a lot as a kid with grandfather, looking to get back into it now and only option for now is bank fishing. Started a collection of lures and tackle and have a rod and reel. I just don't know of any good areas to fish. I've tried around city park and the surrounding areas with not…

We head to Bayou Bonfouca for a morning bass fishing trip. Haven't fished Bonfouca in a few years so started slow trying to figure them out. Once I finally find what they want, and a few misses later, I get a few decent bass in the boat.

We meet up with a good buddy Chris Broussard for a evening bass fishing trip on Bayou Liberty. Had some misses but end up with few bass.
Enjoyed the video. Good fishing.

Only fish of the tournament was short. Only fish of the day with one other running with the jig which was short as well. The only place where I got bite was side bayous with current while flipping and punching the cover outside the current. This was the Flat Lake area which is HIGH and from what I…

I have been at Lake Bruin for 2 days. Have had a total of two bites on a swim jig. Will be here for 7 more days . Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Was there 2 weeks ago and smoked em. Fish shallow. When you think you are fishing too shallow, fish shallower.

Would really appreciate learning the details regarding how to rig a dropshot setup for bass fishing for fishing in shallow water Ie. line, hock, weight, etc.

Some fast and furious bass action down in Venice recently
Good video. I always wanted to make a trip down river but never made it.

Caught some nice bass running a 12 inch worm weightless down the bank.

Looking for a place close by to fish for bass in my kayak. Is the fishing any good out there? I know they drained the lake and after that it wasn’t the same, but is it even worth throwing a bait?
It is hit and miss, never great. Lots of trash fish.After rains some action. Across the road in Manchac really popping when water is flowing till you get behind Country Club with golf course chemical run off. Downstream from there is pretty much dead.
