Bass/general freshwater fishing around New Orleans/BR

Reply
 
So I've recently started Bass/freshwater fishing, and I've already fell in love with it. However, I'm looking for some new spots after trying out the same few.

I live in the New Orleans area, but I go to school in Baton Rouge. I haven't tried much in BR besides the lake at my apartment complex (which is quite productive and almost no one else fishes it), and in NOLA, I've tried City Park a million times and Bayou St. John in my kayak with decent luck. So I'm just looking for some good freshwater fishing areas around either of these two areas that I haven't tried out yet. Like I said, I have a kayak, so feel free to recommend spots that I could only access with the yak as well.

Have you tried Manchac? I fish it a good but and always catch a couple no matter what. Lots of smaller bass but good practice. Biggest I have caught was 4lbs on the nose. Lots of little put ins for a kayak on the service road running parallel to I-55. I went yesterday for a couple hours and caught three real quick.

Just now seeing this. Thanks for the reply! This is convenient to both BR and New Orleans. I'll definitely have to give it a try.

Can I ask what kind of lures you were using to catch those fish?
