I have been fishing the Atchalaya basin all of my life. Now, I have never seen so many boats in my life especially during the week. I would not attempt to fish on the weekend. What happen to the common courtsey we were taught by our loving parents.
Now of days the only time a boat slows down is to watch and see if you catching any, if they see you are catching they will put their troll....
Off of the Cheramie in the old union oil canals, fish the canals left and right going back to the facialities. The worms are falling out of the trees big time and the bream are tearing them up. Its a site to see how fast the bream will hit these worms. Good luck fishing, and take the kids, now is the time they can catch them.
I have been fishing the basin all of my life, I thought I have seen just about everything until yesterday. I did not want to go on Saturday because of all the boats but my friend wanted to go, and our adventure begain.
We left Doirons at safe daylight and arrived to the first spot and there sat a guy, young daughter and son anchored out on the spot, we slowed downed and watched them catching....
I got a call from West Lake Verrett field in the basin this morning, sac-a-lait, bass, perch, catfish, and everything else floating gasping for air. Looks real bad. Just when everthing was getting back on track.
Fished the Turtle Bayou pipeline today from daylight to 10 am caught +- 60 bass on finesse watermellon red wacky worm. Nothing real big but had a blast. Good place to take the kids, the bream and goggle eye are biting also. Good luck
