re: New fishing season approaching


Getting away from the bank and fishing deep structure, I have no idea what I'm doing out there.
Start wearing my life jacket all the time when outboard is on.
Get better at left handed casting/ flipping/ pitching.
Make more trips to Lake Fork.

re: New fishing season approaching


I would like to learn more of the spillway too... Only area I really fish now is the area around the north end of flat lake

Do y'all think we will see a change in the size limit this spring?

I need to do this also. Along with not getting drunk and running 60 across a lake with no life jacket

I haven't had the chance to get it on the water yet, but it feels better than my last Shakespeare that I lost when I flipped my yak.

re: New fishing season approaching


I really hope so, but I don't have much faith. It seems like I hear the same shite every year with nothing ever coming from it. Throwing back 13.5" bass ALL DAY without putting anything in the icechest is frustrating as hell.

re: New fishing season approaching


Tell me about it
I'm just worried that if they change it to 12" that in a couple years all you will catch is 11.5 " fish

re: New fishing season approaching


Last year was my first year fishing down there. Id throw back a ton of 13" fish but id bring home 5-10 keepers. What I liked about this summer was having keepers mixed in with small ones then as it got hotter the fishing slowed way down but size picked up

I think it's a 5'2". I wanted to keep it a little shorter for floating rivers and ease of travel.

Yea I know. I don't know the answer to what needs to change, I just know I don't like it like it is.

I'll still be going a bunch regardless of what happens.

The only bass fishing I'll be doing is Lake Rosemound and maybe a friends small lake at his camp.

You can do it on the right day for sure. That place is full of bass.

I have fun every time I go. If they don't change it then it won't really hurt my feelings. I usually go for gibson for freezer filling anyway.

re: New fishing season approaching


since Bayou Corne looks like its going to be Bama and Beer'd for the foreseeable future, I'm going to have to find some new bluegill holes

I love fishing down there but its a decent drive for me. Old River and Lake Mary are a whole of a lot closer

I think I'm writing off the north end of verret for this year.

Gonna make the spillway my main go-to freshwater place for everything.

I just have a hard time going there and not bass fishing

You fish Gibson often? I'm hunting there this weekend and will probably wet some lines.

Not nearly arse often as the spillway/verret but I usually go a good bit. Last year I didn't go much. Definitely a fun place to fish though. There's always a million people out there but they're almost always stacked up in the school board canal and there's plenty fish to be caught elsewhere.
