Mardi Gras Sacs

Site Sponsor
A quick solo trip yesterday yielded 16 nice sac-a-lait in the Bayou Black swamp. I found the water conditions to be off just a bit with a brown stain that was not the best to catch sacs. Visibility was only a few inches throughout the canal systems. I found a better quality of water at a couple dead ends where the darker water from the swamp was mixing and thats where I caught my fish. Blue/white tube jigs (1/16 jighead) under a cork around 15 inches did the trick. Also caught 6 or 7 fish on a pink/black tube jig. None of the fish had eggs as I cleaned them up for supper. The next few weeks should be better fishing and I hope the water clears up soon. Good luck fishing.

You say none of the fish you cleaned had eggs . Is that because you think they've all spawned out or you caught all male fish ?
Still early, not spawned out yet.
Hey Capt Bill, do you remember how deep the water was?
