Wanted to see if Bogue Falaya area was a tad cleaner that yesterday and also wanted to scope out area that seems to always harbor some fine sac au lait and accomplished both today.Day started with me chatting with gent who has seen my vehicle parked at 3 Rivers Rd Launch and we exchanged tips about where to seek slabs and I told this gent that most of the sac au lait purists would never give up their 'honey holes' and I also joked with him about the folks constantly asking me for spots to duck hunt in the NShore Marsh!!Finally got underway and put in nice sac with very dark line on head,running entire length of this fish!Caught another,both on black and chartreuse Salter jigs I got at Sportsman Show.Ended up catching and releasing at least 3 bass,kept decent bass and also caught nice fat bluegill and missed at least 3 fat sac au lait and missed very nice bass in main T-Funk just as fellow in party barge was heading up river.Wifey and I made run to Academy(had two $10 off certificates,compliments of CCA)and I got her nice Slab Daddy jigging pole,with reel,and we hope to nab some fat sac au lait.For what it is worth,spawn still on in T-Funky area and last few fish loaded with eggs!!Ended up with 2 nice sac au lait,nice blue gill,decent bass and bassing buddy joked that the sac's are almost the same size as the bass!!!

Took ride to 3 Rivers Rd Launch today and saw one of the sac au lait masters' tow vehicles parked at launch,no doubt he is having fun nabbing fat sac au lait and smallish bass(not sure if he keeps any bass).Think I might alter my sac au lait strategy slightly and start tossing tiny chrome Rattle Traps(heard they are deadly on suspended sac au lait)-my electronics were showing plenty of fish at various depths and I hate using live bait of any kind and have caught some chunks using nothing more exotic than black and chartreuse tube jigs(Salter's jigs-got em at Sportsman Show)!This gent is definitely head and shoulders ahead of me and we used to routinely run into each other,he is nice older aluminum flat and me in Chapman pirogue and I was almost exclusively targeting bass and he concentrated his efforts on fine and fat sac au lait.Now what I have been doing is trailering Southfork to launch and getting ability to traverse much more water and standing vs seated kinda low on water is tremendous advantage!!
