Falling Red River produces in June

The bass fishing on the Red River in Alexandria generally will start turning on in June, depending on the water level. The river still may be flooded this month, but under stable or falling conditions, a number of the bass will begin moving out to the remaining part of the river. In June, I prefer to run to the cuts and the riprap out on the main river and catch the bass on a crankbait or flip wood in the main river.Read More...

Lunkers at Larto Lake in May

Larto Lake, located south of Vidalia in Catahoula Parish, is an old Mississippi oxbow lake. I like to fish here because I can stay at the Honey Brake Lodge near Jonesville, one of the best duck-hunting spots in the nation. At this lake, you can combine a duck-hunting trip with a great bass or crappie-fishing trip in the winter.Read More...

March is probably the best month to fish this lake because the bass are either in the pre-spawn or the spawning mode, and will be moving into the backwater creeks.Read More...

Chicot is great park with even better bass

Ville Platte’s Lake Chicot sits on the border of the delta and the hill land. One side of the lake has a bluff bank, and the other side is as flat as the bottom of a cast-iron skillet. Chicot has numbers of cypress trees, so don’t try to get your boat up on plane there.Read More...

It’s time to hit the cooling oxbows

In North Louisiana during October, the weather will start to cool off. The bass will get into their fall mode more quickly than they do in South Louisiana because they’ll start to feel winter approaching.Read More...
