Inshore Fishing in Bayou Bienvenue in Southeast Louisiana

John Rucker


Another easy day in the ICWW

Just wanted to let everyone know the fish are definitely biting in Bayou Bienvenue. Fish the ledges of the ICWW from the chef to the new locks and you will find some fish if you are persistent.
Fish carolina rigged or dribble a jig-head with a matrix shad down the drop off. If you can afford live bait, that will work too. Just move until you find them and when you do you should be able to put a dent in the school.

Today there were A LOT of birds in bayou thomas and lake borgne but the fish were 12 inches and many throwbacks. If you feel like weeding out the small ones or have a child on board, there is plenty of action under the birds. There is no telling if they will be there when you go, but they were today.

Scott(night fisher), Phillip, and I caught our 75 trout and a couple reds in short order using Matrix shads and Tko's carolina rigged and caught the redfish and a few trout on sliding corked live shrimp

Be safe out there and most importantly, HAVE FUN!!

We launch at bait inc. should pull up in google for the addy. Fish all the drop offs in the Mrgo and as John said in today's post. The birds are at the castle and they are thick for quick and easy limits of trout. They have been there for at least 2 weeks if not longer.
