Was interested in combo trip(Parish Line Canal and PowerLine Pilings)and chatted with two commercial crabbers at Williams Blvd Boat Launch this am and headed to a few small platforms in SW Lady P,hoping to catch maybe a few specks and possibly some fine reds,perfect for the grill!Water was high,predictably,and was no where near as clean as I woulda liked and decided to try for some specks and reds with bass as a back-up.Thank God I had a back-up as the water was not too inviting for specks and reds and at least I managed a few decent bass,falling for Yum Swim n Dinger worms in black and blue(perhaps my favorite color combination).I managed to box two,caught probably about ten and released three and had a bunch self-release!!Did see a few crabbers and they reported small crabs and struck out at a few Pilings I decided to toss Berkeley Gulp Swimming Mullets,Chartreuse,at!!Think it may take about a week minimum for the water to get right and then those feisty reds should be prime!!
