That's why I don't even hide my face in pictures on here anymore.

I don't know. But if any areas are private it should be posted. If they don't have it posted, I say it's fair game to fish.

For Half Moon or 2'oclock, take your time. Lots of stumps. Always fish old bridge at HM for sacaulait if you go.

Little Alabama River:

I fished this area in college and the area was an excellent bream fishing spot. There were many lay downs along the river if you put a worm or cricket next to the trees you would end up with some fish.

What about cow island lake? I haven't fished there since college. Is it still any good? What would the river state have to be to get a 19 ft. Skeeter in there?

Lil' Alabama has some pretty good fishing. Throw sinkos and wacky worms for a sure bite in there. 2 O'clock obviously has bass but don't throw your best shite out because the choupiqe will destroy most of your tackle box. Half moon is descent and not private. You'll likely have some arse hole try to run you off but as long as your in the water your fine. There's a hunting club there and they think that it's private.... It's not! Also, bring wasp spray to 2oclock. I've never seen nests like on that bayou!

re: Lafayette Area Fishing (Public Launches, Bayous, and Lakes)
So I'm taking the afternoon off, and I can't decide whether I want to try out 2 O'clock or Little Alabama. I want to catch a few bass, doesn't really matter the size because I'll likely be throwing them back. I want to get some practice in before this weekend. Got a friendly tourney this weekend with 5 of my buddies going to Indian Creek. So if you had to recommend a place to go to get a few sure bites, where would it be? 2 O'clock or Little Alabama?

I went a couple of times last year with a friend of mine. 1st trip we didn't catch a thing. It was still winter time, so that might have been a factor. 2nd time was in the summer. We caught a few bass, but nothing spectacular. I don't remember what the river stage needs to be. You could probably get there easily right now. Everything is high.

I'll see if I can get that answer for you and let you know.

Is there still a bunch of grass in there?

Plenty.

This wasn't when I was with him, but the same guy I went with caught a 4 lber over there trolling a black buzzbait along the grass while they were idling out. Sumbitch couldn't be more lucky.

ETA: I asked him about the river level. He said 15' you should be able to get in there. 16' would be much safer.

I took my 12 year old to Big Alabama a couple weeks ago and we ended up catching about 10 bass (5 of which we kept). We launched at the ramp back in the woods and rode north till we hit the power lines and fished the west side of the bayou from there. All were caught on chartreuse spinner bait.

If you go, just remember to use the self-clearing permit before you enter the WMA and make sure you have a WMA stamp.

Ok, so this is the second time I've heard this. In the regulations booklet it says you need this, or a hunting or fishing license. Just to clear it I called the Wildife and Fisheries office in Opelousas. He told me the wildlife stamp is for people that are birdwatching and doing other activities not related to hunting and fishing. If you have a fishing license that is all you need. Just make sure to visit the kiosk and check in and out with a self clearing permit. That is all.

Nice, thanks for the location for another boat launch. I'm saving all of these on my maps. I started this thread to find a few more launches other than Henderson, and I'm currently up to 5 other launches. I'd say this thread is paying off for that purpose. Now lets see if I can find the fish haha.

re: Lafayette Area Fishing (Public Launches, Bayous, and Lakes)
I took my kayak to Lake Martin on this past Friday morning for the first time. I fished from around 7AM - 10AM and caught 4 bass but none of them had much size. I really want to go back soon though as I felt like I was just figuring out the bite when I had to leave.

There is NO shortage of gigantic alligators there BTW. I heard dinosaur growling all morning and saw numerous as long as my kayak
