Any word on the water clarity in the Sound lately? Seeing if its worth making the drive down friday or saturday. Thanks in advance.

Well I haven't fished down there since right after Katrina (pre-MRGO dam), and had a blast. Didn't really know where to go, but wandered a round the marsh, and ended up with 4 keeper reds, caught on live shrimp 2ft under a popping cork, and also caught 2 sheepshead, one huge one. Caught those tightlining 12 inches off the bottom. Caught a few throw back specks. I'm sure if i would've wandered more to the open bays I could've made good hauls like the other seasoned guys were bringing in down there. Will def be back next weekend.

Anyone been having any luck out there? My last two outings have resulted in a few catfish. I ran up and the ICWW and hit a few drains, and unknown pass, and the l&N train bridge with zero on our last trip two weeks ago. Any suggestions?

We went a few weeks ago at low tide and left BSM and went straight across. Only had 1 or 2 instances where we were running in less than 2 feet of water. As long as you're on plane and not in a tug boat you should be ok. On the ride back, the alarm never went off for low water. Just make sure you have a reliable depth finder. Good luck

So i would have to take a route around the MRGO dam to fish that set of rocks I'm assuming

Last weekend was my first trip to hopedale since before the MRGO dam. I hear everyone talk about the 'rocks' out there. Where exactly are they? Trying to learn the area this summer. Thanks in advance

The past 2 times ive been on Geohagen canal it's rained and been extra windy and the water has stayed pretty clear. Just my .002. Youll probably do pretty well in the shallow ponds that i cant make it into. Good Luck!

A comment titled: yea in response to a report titled: Where did all the deer go?

That figures that the deer moved back to the vaughn road side. Earlier in the season i had a spike and a 3 pt coming to my feeder regularly right a dark. Then the hogs moved in and i shot one, and had another 6 on camera. Then everything disappeared. They had a decent amount of scrapes within 100 yards of my stand but the hogs messed that up. I did notice this year that the number of people participating in the drives dropped drastically. i hunted on basically every drive last hunting season and sometimes there werent enough stands for everyone. This year i went to only a few because of work but my dad and his cousin went to everyone of em and said there were hardly enough people to make a drive. Hopefully next year we will get some more motivated hunters in.

A comment titled: agree with the flooding in response to a report titled: Where did all the deer go?

The flooding of the tickfaw river (our back border) didnt help at all. alot of deer from the surrounding clubs did cross there like they usually do. i know deer will swim rivers and such but with a current like that i know they stayed put.

A comment titled: i hear ya on gettin away in response to a report titled: Where did all the deer go?

my work schedule killed my huntin season basically. i killed a hog the day it snowed by my private stand on vaughn rd and seen a few other deer, that i could have shot but i didnt know i could. for the first three weeks of the season i thought you had to shoot 4pt or better every where. it turned out to be just on the camp side in holden. so technically i should have a huge cow horn spike and a 3pt in the freezer. my dad and his cousin both killed. my dad got a doe, and dale got a 6 pt, both with dogs. they went to tunica during the muzzleloader season and my dad killed a doe, and missed a monster 10pt at 45 yards, and dale seen a few. i went to tunica with my cross bow the first week of january and seen several deer and missed a nice 8 at 50 yards. i hope the lease turns around next year in holden/springfield/independence. that land has a lot of potential and cover for the deer if it were managed right and the trails and food plots kept up, and if the outlawing could be controlled.

A comment titled: yea we both must be in cat branch in response to a report titled: Where did all the deer go?

yea theres always a lot of sign by the river in holden but, apparently during the work days no one cleaned out by the stands on the river, because i squirrel hunted the river several times and its overgrown every where. Several weeks ago we still hunted springfield on the river side and seen lots of sign but no deer, moving at night im assuming. we would hunt all day and not see a thing, but all the scrapes around the camp would be freshened up at night.

A comment titled: agree with the outlawing in response to a report titled: Where did all the deer go?

Our club consists of 3-4 pieces in the holden spring field independence area and last year we killed ALOT of deer but they were all mature deer. I have to agree with the outlawing tho because the locals are really bad about. they have "outlaw trails" surrounding one of our pieces of property. During bow season there was sign EVERYWHERE and seen/shot deer but after christmas the tracks disappeared in holden, but in independence and springfield they were everywhere but had to have been at night. I think the high number of people running dogs out there could have a lot to do with the scattering of the deer. also the amite river that was our back border was high high most of the season. this could be another factor. i hope this straightens out next year....
