[quote]Cross the river in port Vincent and give bayou manchac a try[/quote]
I'm assuming you mean cross over towards Prairieville. Just found Bayou Manchac on the map, it's probably 2 miles from my house which would be great. I just don't know where I would put in the yak over there.

I moved both lines, one is under a bridge which I presume is a good spot, about 11 feet of water. The other is in 8 feet.
I've tried every bait I can think of, still, every time I show up my hooks are clean but no fish. I even tried yeh monn catfish bait which is like shoe leather ...

I run a few trot lines from my yak in the river, and one day after baiting with beef melt I paddled up to my line and it was being yanked around somethin fierce. I was sure it was a gator. So after reaching down and grabbing my nuts, I figured out it was just a couple turtles. ...

So I've set up a couple trot lines on a bayou off the amite. I've tried 3 different baits so far with not much luck.
Worms: one small flathead
Beef melt: 2 turtles
Soap: nada except my buddies insults
Any suggestions on a bait I'm forgetting?...

So to appease my mother, we are taking a small family vacation to the smokies in a few weeks.
Any recommendations on dining options? We like local places, mom and pops etc. Don't mind driving a good distance either. Thanks!...
