All on Big Bite Baits Senko Knock off. Doubt I'll ever buy those overpriced Senko's again.

Top water bass fishing heats up in July on the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain. We head to Bayou Bonfouca with Keith Lusher to do some bass fishing. I start off throwing a frog early with a lot of misses and a few small ones. I decide to switch to a Pop Off and it paid off by putting plenty of…

Tried the same 2 spots in the basin after work today (love working from home).
Managed 2 at the 1st spot and 7 at the 2nd spot. Didn't get wet thankfully.
No size to them but they'll make the grease pop all the same.
Of course the nicest one I hooked got off.
2 on senko…

The Federal Government has cut the spending to the lake. With all of the budget cuts, some things had to go. Funding for food/fertilizer/upkeep on some Federal lakes were one of the cuts. That is what one of the agents told us last year. Said the fish were slowly dying.

I never fished Bayou Bienvenue before. I did crab there once. Looking for some ideas on area to fish for bass. Taking the grand kids on Monday

I'll soon be fishing bar pits for bass out of a pond boat. The sort you might see off the interstate.

Any pointers regarding baits and what not would really be appreciated.

Thanks much.
