I moved down here to go to school and married a lady from down here. Not overly familiar with saltwater fishing but grew up fishing freshwater everyday. I was jugging the other night on Bayou Sorrel and caught what my partner called a âgafftopsailâ catfish. Strangest looking catfish Iâve ever seen. He said it wasnât unusual to catch them. Then he mentioned that he has seen crabs in Bayou Sorrel as well. I couldnât believe it. I dipped my hand in the water and tasted some, tasted sweet to me. Was he pulling my leg? If not, how far north do those crabs go?
Caught Blues in canals on north end of Lake Verret. Went Friday. Temps were in the 70's. Partly cloudy. Used calf liver on jug lines. Had the most action on the line where the muddy water began to clear up. Wind was blowing from the south.
