Once I got up the Tickfaw river from Springfield and after blowing the cobwebs out of the old motor, it was time to fish. Spinner baits and topwaters were fruitless, as were super flukes, craws, and power worms. I switched to a Zoom Baby Brush Hog in watermelon seed and caught 4 decent bass. 5 warmouths fell for the texas rigged presentation. The rains in the area had the water high and falling fast. Fish were positioned in current breaks and run outs and slow to bite.
I'm contemplating taking the kayak or canoe out soon depending on the weather. I need about 5-10 days of sunshine for those spots to be worth the effort. My next big boat destination will be the Tangipahoa River in search of spotted bass. Hopefully this will take place during the next week or so.

Blue and green means you will NEVER catch anything.
Think purple and gold and you will have many individuals give you input and help plus the fish will go nuts and you will have to get a larger boat to handle the increase in bitges and successful landings.
Just a suggestion.

I did get out on the Tangipahoa River a few days ago. All the rail we had recently had the water looking like chocolate milk. I was still able to put together a decent day with a mixed catch. Most were panfish caught on bass baits. Bites were coming on black beetle spins with gold blades near the tree line. It was a slow day, but I love fishing that river. I should be able to really start getting after it in June with the canoe, so if you're into that sort of thing around here, stick around or hit me up.
And Catt is right...if you want to know about south west Louisiana, look no further than him. He's been slaying them for years out there.

The Calcasieu river is improving daily as flood waters recede, a few bass are being caught on Wacky worms.
Vernon Lake is a hidden hot spot!

We have more LA bassers here than I thought. Might have to schedule up a Caney Lake trip. I still haven't fished there. Anyone having any luck on big bass there?
