Went last week, caught 6 keepers early, then it shut down. Rocks by the wall. Wind picked up and I left. My buddy and his friend went 2 days before that and caught 100 of which 31 were keepers.
I fished same area and same bait two days later and ... Results above.
Btw, Michoud tide chart looks to be about 4-5 hours behind, guessing wall effect. Heading again Monday after the front

Re: Bayou B Updates ??
I have been going the last 4 Saturdays and have been satisfied with my results. I have been catching trout, redfish and bass along the rocks. I don’t concentrate on the wall. I fish several random areas. Some areas may hold fish more often but I believe that currently they are constantly patrolling the rocks. I see people using live shrimp under corks, various jerk baits, and suspending baits along the rocks. Several boats are always at the castle during a falling tide. Sounds crazy but my best luck has been on an incoming tide. That is by chance since like you said, tide charts seem to be far off. Surprisingly, my keeper ratio is higher than I have read from others. I use a different technique with the thought that big fish eat big baits. I suggest to get out there as often as you can, try various techniques and locations, have fun and be safe! Tight lines and filled boxes.
