I have not been to Bayou Corne since the week before the sinkhole appeared. Since August I have been fishing in Pigeon and Sorrel, but the water is coming up. I am planning on going down Saturday and launching at Sportsman’s Landing. Planning to fish canals beyond Bay Alcide which is heading away from the sinkhole.
I spoke with Dennis Landry (Sportsman’s Landing) and he said the launch is.... Read More
I would like to find out more about fishing this area. I fish Sorrel and Pigeon, but when the water gets high, it is nice to have options outside the levee. I was fishing Corne regularly before the sink hole.
Any information on where to launch and what areas are/are not navigable, would be appreciated.
I have caught some bass in the past few months that have made me re-think eating fish.

Plenty of bank fishing...I did see a gator in the grass near the picnick tables.
Plan to launch at Bayou Corne on Sunday. Will be taking my wife and two young kids for a day of bream fishing on crickets & worms.
I have fished this area several times recently with moderate success. Primarily in the first 3 fork canal after you hit Grand Bayou and in Texaco Canal. Basically shot around until I found the best water.
Any advice on fishing this area? I have become.... Read More
I am looking to learn more about fishing near Bayou Sorrell…it has been years since I last fished that area. Assuming that I launch at Sorrell landing, I wanted to find out good areas to fish and what to look for with regard to water levels. I understand that water levels are key to fishing the Basin, but I don’t really have an understanding of what to look for in gauging.... Read More
