I'm soon to buy my first bass boat. Which places are relatively close to BR that is good for bass fishing? Is colyell creek any good? What about blind river, mainly the parts between the diversion and the lake. Tchefuncte?
Thanks for the help
Ken Addington who is a really good big bass fisherman held a luncheon at Bass Pro Shops Uncle Bucks last Friday in Grapevine Texas in my honor of 'Have lunch with a Big Bass Fishing Legend' At the luncheon I was asked to tell the story of the Louisiana Outlaws Chapter in my new book 'The Journey of an Old Big Bass Fisherman'.
I told the story in it's entirety of how 36 years ago in May....
I was lucky enough to get in Zack Gagnard's boat of Elite Guide Service on Toledo Bend this past Saturday. To my surprise we located offshore schools of post spawn fish. We had a blast and they were hungry! We fished main lake ridges and humps targeting fish along the drops in 15-20ft of water. They were stacked and closely grouped together. We caught our fish using Carolina Rigs, with....
Made a trip to Lake Okhissa yesterday. Lots of bass on beds. Caught 7 sight fishing. Most came on beaver style baits in natural colors. Gave up on a 6lb bass early in the morning and came back a few hours later and got her. Try swim jigs early in the morning around grass edges to find spawners or weightless senkos.
This weekend we fished the LOBI Tournament. A great tournament put on for everyone associated with the oilfield in Louisiana, that donates to great charities. They do a great job with the festivities and weigh ins.
Of course when we decided to put our money up, a cold front came through and wind blew heavy, in the upper 25mph range. And on Toledo, that means you better hold on! And on....

A lot of reports sent in this weekend on Toledo Bend. Alex has been catching his fish in buck brush in 3-5ft of water with a slight stain. He is using the Bayou Bug in Black n Bleu color with a 3/8oz tungsten weight pegged and a flipping hook. Alex said there are a good bit of fish moving up and his best bet is catching them in the bushes. We also have reports of customers using the PooDoo Craw....
Went to False River Saturday night. The bite was very slow ans light. Fishing the south end on Texas rigid brush hogs. Fished until 4am and ended up with 5 keepers. Anyone else have any reports from here?
Here is a photo of my 10 biggest caught New Year's Eve 1977.
10 Bass weighed 86 lbs.
Did not keep the 6 others that went from 6-7lbs that day.
You can read about this and other stories in my new book:
The Journey of an Old Big Bass Fisherman
Me and my 4 buddies decided to go fishing Sunday along a bayou that passes by our houses. So we loaded up 3 14ft aluminum hulls and hit the water before day break. It was a perfect day to fish. We caught a total of 37 bass that day. I topped the leaderboard with 12 bass, my friend Thomas caught 11, Dylan caught 8, Jacob caught 6, and William lucked out and caught 0. All the bass were caught on....

Has anyone compared the Legend Cartography 'Louisiana Geaux ' card to the Standard Mapping 'LA-1' card?
Is there any great difference in the two? I fish the spillway , Verret, Des Allemandes, Delacroix, Laffette and sometimes Venice. I'm looking for a good Aerial Imagery mapping system. If you have compared the two, which would you recommend?
Central High Fishing Team member Jared Abbott had a couple of really good days on Toledo Bend pre-fishing for the Costa Central Open High School tournament last weekend.
His first trip to Toledo bend produced plenty of action and had Jared excited about the tournament that would have been this weekend but due to the heavy rains, tournament officials wisely chose to postpone the....
If your wanting a catch a Bass of a lifetime flipping reeds are the way to go this time of year. 1 of the best things about flipping reeds is the whole point of not knowing what you have on the other end until you set the hook . You could be setting the hook on a 1 lb. fish or a 11 lb. fish there is really no telling what's going to come out of those reeds . So in my mind flipping reeds for....
With the Mississippi on the rise and the Basin as well, a great alternative is The Secret Fishing Hole. My son and I went this afternoon after church and caught about 20 in just 3 hrs. Kept 10 'drakes' for all you purists out there. Here are a couple of the ones too big to keep...
Fished the Haynesville Shale Tournament this weekend on the Bend. Cajun Lures team had 14 pounds a day. Started the day out fishing swim jigs, caught two nice ones and dropped some good ones as well. One the sun got up, we decided to flip bushes using Green Pumpkin Bayou Bugs. After not getting bit for a while, we dipped the tails in chartreuse dye. This is always a good trick for spring time....
Man what a fish!!! Toledo Bend is where it could happen to anyone. This is from the front page of the site. Just incredible. I can't wait to go in April. I caught two just under 8lbs last year. Hope I'm not too late in April? Congrats Kacy on a beast!
From the front page: He might not have expected it, but that's exactly what happened: the 31-year-old angler wound up landing the....
So, we kept seeing this bass all weekend at Jellystone, and we noticed something on his head, (the water is SO clear) so we just had to catch him to get a closer look. Still not sure what could be wrong. Anyone know?
