Here's a start:
I joined bassresource fairly recent and there seems to be some great info here. I am trying to locate a spot somewhere near Slidell, LA to go bass fishing. I have the appropriate gear but I just haven't been able to find any fishies :'( I would really appreciate it if one of you could help me out.

1. Bayou Lacomb
2. Bayou Cain (not sure how dependable the launch is)
3. A few secret ponds in Mandeville
4. Tchefuncte River
5. Tangipahoa River
7. Tickfaw/Natalbany River
I personally have caught the most out of those ponds in Mandeville and Tangipahoa River, I've never fished Tchefuncte but looks quite decent.
For directions to any launches or ponds, just send a message...I know of plenty of ponds from Mandeville to Amite.

Thanks for the advice dude, much appreciated. Too bad half of what you said is hard for me to apply in real life since I lack having a boat right now :'(
What can I say? You are pretty much right around the corner from me and this exactly what I was looking for. Huge thanks for sure. I went to Mandeville recently and attempted to look for some local pounds. Unfortunately, everything I came across had a house in front of it lol. I went to the Mandeville pier last Friday and I caught my limit of reds. Could you perhaps pretty please tell me where one of these secret ponds might happen to be located? I would definitely take my daughter there. Thanks again saint!

ps:pass up lonesome and greenleaves and take a left in the neighborhood tanglewood, take a left on the second street and...ahh hell id have to go back go to it to remember how to get to it, all of the ponds i just mentioned have houses around them, and the one on lonesome i walk the whole thing but just stay close close to the bank and no one ever says anything excent "any luck?", the one in audubon lakes is kind of tricky to bank fish and youre kind of limited to about 100yds and the dam (its a huge pond, used to be a creek but they dammed it and its pretty amazing) i usually bring a small flat with a trolling motor or paddle...
psps: 2 ponds infront of fountainblue jr. high hold big bass, idk how they arent big ponds at all but i went out there one morning a few years back and caught 2 4lb and like 5 or 6 solid 2lbers
