Bass Fever

Are any of you like me now that the hunting season is coming to a close???? I'm getting that fever...Had it for over a week now. Last week it hit me so hard I had to go put my boat in the water and catch a few catfish. But I'm not talking about cat fishing. BASS fishing. Things have been shut down on my favorit spot, and I've still got a couple of months to wait before they heat up again. But I can't wait till they do. Think I'm going to try for some white perch on Darbonne. I heard they have the pallets marked with yellow bouies. Are these very visible from the dock, or do you have to ride all over the lake to find them? I hate the stumps in that lake. If not there then maybe Turkey Creek or Larto lake. Any information is appreicated.

Perch in D'Arbonne
Anything you might need to know about catching a perch in D'Arbonne can be found out by making a call to the Honey Hole in West Monroe. The owner is a big-time perch jerker and has been featured in Louisiana Sportsman. The LDWF should have charts of their locations, also.
As for the bass, they can be caught in the backwater right now on the river, once the rain ends. Start looking on road beds with a chartreuse or firetiger crankbait. If it warms back up, crawfish pattern should do good too. Let me know if you do any good.
Later,
Sam

My dad has been catching some white perch in Saline which is connected to Larto. Larto hasn't really turned on yet. Some people are catching but have to know where the brushpiles are. He doesn't like the crowds in Larto either. One of his fishin buddies made the long run to Larto Monday and said there was 49 boats around youngbloods out to the mouth of Larto. If we don't get to much rain and stays cold to long he thinks they will be moving to the banks shortly. There eggs are real red and mushy.

Thanks Fellas
I was planning a trip friday with my buddy to DArbonne, but he bought him a mussleloader and a couple more weeks of deer hunting. You know how those deer hunters are... But we got that cold front and a lot of rain, and figured we'd be wasting our time. With this hot cold hot cold weather we're having, I would be suprised if anybody's on the lake. Might try for wensday in Farmiville. We'll have to see how that goes. All I can hope for is that it doesn't rain the whole month of June this year. By the way, on my catfishing expidition, we set out about 12 yo yo's and ran them for a couple of days. Usually checking them every 3 - 4 hours and had about three fish on every time. Ate them up already though. I hate to tell you guys this, but if you're ever on Concordia and the bass and perch aren't biting, go directly across from what they call the blue hole on the east side of the lake and put you a chunk of worm on a brim hook about 8 foot deep around the cypress. You'll be there all day... Especially fun on a tiny lite with 4 pound line. Thanks again
