I wanted some advice/opinions on bass fishing in bar pits.This is around the Graingeville Amite River. They have not been pumped out of for over 20 years. When the river floods (like last week) it over flows into what is about 10 pits. Three of them are pretty good in size.I know that some Big Bass have come out of them and they are very rarely fished. Because its been so long that they have been pumped the water is really clear around the banks and then where the pit drops to (was told by my PawPaw)about 60 feet it just turns black. I have tried every kind of bait I can think of. Just wanna catch a 12lb Large Mouth. No sacalit,perch,catfish,gar.Just a bass.Any help would be great!
