Cocodrie in November
I pulled our travel trailer out of Delacroix when the last storm came thru and am leaving it trailered at my house until next year. I have the opportunity to use a friend's camp down in Cocodrie for next weekend. I've fished the area several times in the spring/summer, but never in the fall.

Can anyone recommend some areas to try for this time of year?

Lake Boudreaux? Lake Barre/Tambour area? or further north up around Madison bay?

Any input is appreciated as this is not my normal fall fishing area.

(not looking for GPS coordinates- just general areas that may hold fish this time of year) TIA

The locks on the montegut side of bush canal can hold some trout in winter. Just about any deep canal in the marsh can produce as well. Plenty of drum and sheep head stacked in bayou petite Caillou as well if you want to fish dead shrimp. Most of the bayou from Robinson on south has oyster shells on the bottom and holds drum

I've been catching down Bayou Sale in the bays and offshoots of BS. Also been doing well down Grand Caillou not far off of the main drag but a good ways down. 53 last Sat and 46 2 weekends before. Will be heading down tomorrow to repeat hopefully. Looks like the wind will be blowing but I caught both those days in a stiff breeze.

Did any good? I pecked away at them every spot I stopped. Couldn't get on them good anywhere. Finished with 31 and a Red.

Heading down this coming weekend (not previous)- so hopefully they’re biting when we get down there. Hell I’d settle for 30 and a red any day of the week! Lookin forward to trying the bayou sale area as I’m usually on the other side of bayou terrebonne. I will definitely report back.

PS- once you get out the main canal- any obstructions to keep an eye out for? Good to go even on a low tide back in there?

How big of a rig are you fishing from? Sale gets a little shallow past the turn off of the nav canal (not too bad for smaller boats) and in some other areas. Nothing to worry about if on plane or just idling but some of the offshoots are really skinny. I would suggest easing your way around if you want to avoid getting out and pushing.

It’s shallow right when you get off Houma nav. Keep on step and you will be fine. It deepens up. Don’t let your buddy’s hat blow off right at the entrance like I did last week. Pain in the arse to get it back. First camp on your right running down sale- take a right. That is a deep bayou that runs to bay Antoine. Fish that cut and all over bay Antoine is fishable and run able. Islands the cuts surrounding Antoine. You can run right across bay Antoine to some cuts that take you back to grand c. Fish all of those canals and bayous in between bay ant and grand caillou. GPS with a satellite view is your friend. Of course tread lightly as always in new areas. Let us know how you do.
