Dularge fishing and crabbing

Went Friday evening to the Mud Lake Bayou Dufrene area to throw a spoon in the grass beds. Had one bite and it was a bass, I missed it. Saturday morning I headed out to Big Bayou Dularge. I fished the drains and wound up with the opposite of my usual problem of the reds being to small. This time I had one 20', and the other four were over 27' one of those being around 36', I kept just the 20'. The crazy thing is I caught all of them shallow on a popping cork and a plastic grub. Quite around 1 pm. Could not take the heat anymore standing on aluminum. Wound up with 1 red and 10 keeper spec's out of about 25. Sunday I hit all the points in Sister Lake throwing a popping cork, I'm getting hooked on that thing. Wound up with 11 more keeper specks out of about 30, once again retired from the heat around 1 pm. Monday I changed gears and brought the crab nets to Pirouge Canal area. Did real good with that, 80 crabs by 1 pm using hard heads for bait. I was a hero to all the girls for the 4th of July. I spent my life buying fancy rides and nice clothes to get dates. Who knew all needed was a bushel of crabs and a boiling pot.... Well till next time.

I am coming over to the dularge area in August to fish and saw your report and thought I might would fish the areas you mentioned. I was looking at Bing and google earth and I cannot find sister lake. Where is it located? If you could recommend any other area to catch reds and specks that would be great too.

Sister Lake Shows as Calliou Lake on Google Maps.

It's not hard to get to. Launch at Jug Heads, go south thru the locks, keep going south until you hit Grand Pass. If you look right that's Lake Mechant and if you look left that is Sister Lake. As far as where to go, I don't know August is far off. I'm not a pro down there but to me there were more fish closer to the coast line than farther north and that will be the case until it start's to cool off. They are catching the bigger speck's somewhere offshore where I do not venture on account my boat is small. If the wind is not bad just start hitting all the points and islands in the lake, mouths of the bayous and such. You may not have a lot of keepers, but the action will be fun. Good luck fishing.
