Watch Cox Sports Television tonight at 6:30 as host Greg Hackney heads into the Atchafalaya in pursuit of some nice Basin bass.

He and producer Jared Serigné enjoyed a good day, catching fish pretty much all day long, including a nice 5-pounder.

Fish were holding tight on the down current side of the cypress trees, and most were caught on Strike King’s pure poison swim jig.

If you’re fishing the Louisiana Sportsman Bass Championship Open March 15 and 16 at Doiron’s Landing in Stephensville, be sure to check out this episode for some of Hackney’s observations on current, fish location and prime lure selection. 

The tournament features a guaranteed $12,000 payout for 1st place: to register for the championship or for more information, click here.
