re: Fishing around Houma area


Hmm, not too sure about side of the road fishing. I'd say maybe drive toward/to Cocodrie and stop somewhere off of Hwy 56. Going toward Cocodrie, the left side should be Bayou Little Caillou. We used to have a camp around there and we fished using a Kahle hook, 1 to 1.5' leader w/ a half or 3/4 oz sinker (guessing there)...used dead shrimp or cracked crab or croaker and fish the bottom. Would normally pick up a red or drum here and there. If you find an open area, the other side should be Lake Boudreaux and have more shallow grassy areas...could probably throw a popping cork there.

ETA: There is a floodgate somewhere right off the road my uncle has pulled some
nice fish from...no idea where it's at, but I'm thinking Dulac or Montegut/Pointe aux Chenes

Hop on Grand Caillou and head south to Dulac. I'm not sure where you can legitmally catch fish from land, but it's to closest fishing you can get to, and a really great fishery. The weather looks like garbage the rest of the week, so finding an area with clean water and/or out of the wind might be a bit of a problem. Good luck

eta: You might have some luck fishing off the road on 57 from Dulac to Cocodrie. Some great marsh off that road and some clearings to fish. Not a whole lot of pressure over their either.

I'm more familiar with Cocodrie than anywhere else. You can fish along both Boudreaux and Robinson Canals. Boudreaux Canal, right at the bridge has a long levee you can walk down. I know Robinson Canal has a few places you can do the same, right near the bridge.

The other option would be going down to Point Aux Chenes (sp?) and fishing along the highway near the Island. It's a ways down there though.

Good luck!

re: Fishing around Houma area


At certain times of the year they catch specks and reds right out of the marina in point aux chenes, plus you have island road to fish and crab. I remember doing that as a kid when my grandparents had a camp around there. We've caught ice chests full of crab in a few hours.

I fished the marsh north of lake Boudreaux last weekend. There are ways to get way up in the marsh. They had people fishing from land that I couldn't figure out how they got there. Buddy caught 20 reds and a few specks there recently. Lots of people fish there and robinson canal.

Problem with side the road is you will catch 25 catfish to 1 target species. But fishing's better than not fishing.

Should be some good side of the road fishing up in there. don't take a trailer or you'll never be able to turn around.

You can take HWY 57 (Grand Caillou RD) down till you get to Falgout Canal Rd. OR take HWY 315 (Bayou Dularge Rd) down till you get to Falgout canal. IF taking Dularge when you get to Falgout Canal Marina you will cross a brige and Fisherman's Retreat will be on your right (lots of nice camps) take the immediate left once you cross the Falgout Canal bridge and the road will take you to the Dulac Pontton. It is located on the Houma Navigation Canal. You could probably catch a few fish off of the Falgout Canal Rd itself. Also the Dulac cut across road from Chauvin has a few areas you could fish off the bank but not sure how good it is. As mentioned earlier Robinson Canal in Chauvin is a good place to catch some sheephead and drum off the bank. 30' deep and full of oyster shells. It is the bridge at Lapeyrouse Store right past Sportsmans Paradise

On the way to Dulac to fish from the bank with kids. What's the best bait to use for Reds this time of the year. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
