Getting to be that time, they are slowly moving up. Soon it will be very busy!
Suzanne's monster sac slammed a black/chartreuse mini-jig on the first day of March with cloudy skies and light breeze with a marsh fire blazing in the background gotta love it!!
Did a little crabbing on 5/23/14 finished about 11:30am and started fishing.There were some areas around deeper water where I could see cypress stumps,I had a blue and white mini jig with 3/8 black jig head sprayed with crawfish scent fished about 3 foot depth. I started pulling in some schooling sacalait one after another but when the sun turned on full beam through the clouds it turned off. I went to another location where I had a monster sac break my line a week before and made one cast when he nailed it again and this time with some new 12lb clear blue stren fishing line I nailed him also. Crabs and sacalait on the bayou what a day.
Kinda getting a little late in the season but they keep hangin on mainly biting when the weather is overcast with wind. It's crazy when the wind gets to whippin a little and the water, grass, and lily pads began movin; the fish become aggressive including bass. Shiners,jigs and patience mixed with frustration because the wind is moving you into all kinds of positions...you and boat going one way and the fish with your bait going the other LOL!!! Rain makes it even better, but when the first crack of lightning came it was all bets off, got the _ell out of there quick!
Went out friday morning 3/15/14 to take advantage of cloud cover with small chance a rain and picked up a few more sacalait. Could not give up the chance for some more fun catching these slabs, which usually in this area would be over with. Continued cold weather spurts coupled with warm weather has kept them hanging in there. I suspect they are close to being done, gotta get them in boat while I can. Shiners 12 inches under cork close to the banks and keep on the move to find them.Time to move on to the bass soon Jimmy how about some clues! Cloudy in the bayou of Gauche!
Went out this morning knowing I would probably get a wet butt and I did, however when the cold rain fell that's when the fish would start biting. Had to leave them biting because I was getting drowned and it kept getting harder and harder.Took what I could get but had a good time wet in the Bayou of Gauche.
Still pullin them out the bayou in Gauche!
Went back to my little honey holes in Bayou Gauche picked up a few more, recent rains seemed to have affected them a little.Water was clearer probably a little too much freshwater may get back to more normal in a couple of days.
Caught these fish back in Bayou Gauche on shiners and jigs before the front hit on a corner of a bank at a certain time they turned on,then turned off like a switch. Sacalait were very aggressive one hit a bass crank bait little bandit lure,thought I had a bass turned out to be huge sacalait. Bass were full of eggs so they are on the nest now there and the sacalait are just cranking up.
