Finally got a day off this Friday and I'm looking for some bass. I have been really busy so I have no idea what the bass fishing has been like lately. I'm in the Baton Rouge area and will travel 2 hours in any direction. My normal places would be Tickfaw river, Bayou Pigeon, Delacroix (Lake Lery), Bayou Black (Gibson) or Lake Okhissa (Mississippi).
Does anyone have any updates on these locations? I'm also always up for new area's I just want to catch fish. Any information would be appreciated. Location, lure, structure type etc.... Thanks
I'm looking for an update on the bream. Have they started moving into the cypress yet? Might still be a little early but I'm ready.
I'm headed over to Henderson Friday looking for bass. I'm hoping maybe they will be hungry ahead of those storms rolling through. I haven't been there in a while and was just looking for some updates. Have they started moving into shallow water? Better luck north or south of I-10? Holding to structure or grass? Not asking for GPS coordinates of your hot spots just looking for some general updates.
I'm always looking for places where I can put in close to home. Has anyone ever fished all of the canals that run threw the middle of Gonzales? I drive by them all the time but I never see anyone fishing off the bank and I have never seen a kayak in them. I am assuming they are public and fair game for kayak's? Just looking for some feed back. I live about 20 mins away and every time I pass through I think about it but I have never went out there with my yak.
I have read some old reports on here but nothing recent. I am headed to Manchac this weekend for some night fishing. Any recommendations on bait and location would be appreciated. I haven't been there in years and I know things change. Last time I went we used cut bait and fished south pass around the pilings. We caught a few but nothing compared to the story's I have heard about Manchac and certainly not the size I have been told about. Is it all just old fish story's or can you really catch a lot of a catfish and catch some 50+ lb fish? Any reports or advise would be great. Thanks
I'm headed to Lake Okhissa next Friday. Looking for any reports on bass, bream or sac-a-lait. Baits, location, depth, water temp, ect. I haven't been there in a year so any info would be appreciated.
I have fished freshwater for years from my kayak but have never taken it to saltwater. I fished south Louisiana a lot when I had a boat but that was 20 years ago. Most of the places I fished would be too far to paddle and involve crossing more open water than I would like. And from what I have been told post hurricanes I probably would recognize anything. I am looking at heading down there on Nov 30th or Dec 1st pending weather. My target is redfish if I find trout great but I prefer reds. Coming from Baton Rouge area so the closer the better but willing to drive to Venice if it means catching fish. Looking for a close paddle with canals and grass where I can get out of the wind if needed. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
