Bayou Black Bass
This time of year you can hit the bluebird canal. Also try the Schoolboard area and the deadend canals off of Turtle Bayou and Bayou Copasaw. You should find some fish in all these areas. Post how you do when you go. Good Luck.

Not that far. About 10 to 25 minute run depending on how fast the boat is and which spot you choose. Slow rolled spinnerbaits & texas rigged brush hogs & craws should do the trick.

I've never had much success around the Bluebird or Turtle Bayou this time of year. In about a month the Blue Bird will turn on when the bass start moving in to spawn. Turtle Bayou/Schoolboard area will get good around that time if we continue to have this mild winter. In the summer time fish cuts and ponds in the marsh in those areas and off the Copasaw. But right you can catch boat loads of bass while they're schooling up and chasing shad in the marsh 'below' the Brady canal, around Voss canal, Lake Penchant, even canals off of Bayou Decade. Find any cut or dam on a falling tide and start ripping lipless crankbaits and spinner baits. Hold on. You'll catch a couple of limits quick. It is quite a run from Bob's though. A fast boat and a big tank make it much easier. Last few trips I could have caught fish all day. Some guys I fish with had a club tournament last weekend and everyone caught a bunch. Heaviest stringer was almost nineteen pounds. Good luck.
