Where to fish Lake Charles, Ski boat

Reply
 
Hi, I'm new to the are and just got an 18' Bayliner ski boat just for cruising around. I would like to get some suggestions of where to go fishing in the area with this type of boat.

Thanks in advance for your time and comments. Regards.

Best bet is to go talk to the guys at the LOCAL tackle stores. However, you can catch fish all over in a boat that size. Just won't be able to bring it in the marsh or anywhere too shallow. Get a cheap depth finder. That will help you from getting in a bind.
If you're looking for specific bodies of water, Prien Lake and Calcasieu River are good areas to boat ride, ski, and/or fish.

Thank you both for the suggestions. I got an HDS 7 and have to figure out how to adjust the transducer height and angle to get it working properly as last Sunday I did a test run and I'm getting a lot of noise on the images.
Will the Calcasieu lake be too shallow for my boat?

I've been to a restaurant at Lake Arthur, Will look for a ramp over there.

Now, which bait do you use here? I've tried shrimp with no luck, and catch a small one with worms.

Thanks again.

Regards.
