February 2018 will go down as the best bass fishing month on record in southeast Louisiana. In 2011, Kevin Van Dam, declared Lake Cataouatche as one of the best bass fisheries he had ever fished. 'Lake Cataouatche is the best lake I have ever fished. Please take care of it!' KVD said. I would say it to, if I had just won $1 million dollars an broke the Bassmasters Elite record for pounds caught for a four day tournament. But for the local bass fisherman, bass have turned on in the Lake cataouatche area. Find clear water in da tank ponds, West Canal, and the Louisiana Cypress Canal and success is just one cast away. Andreas Hackman found out on the last day of February. He fished the Zoom Bluegill Flash fluke and Houdini salty super fluke on a Texas rig with a # 4 hook & 1/8 ounce weight. Other action came on the Spro Black Jr. Frog. ' It was great afternoon limiting out.' Andreas Hackman commented! Any place I found an opening or hole between the bank an grass bed I would call it, a bass's house! I would throw my fluke on the edge the hole and pull it 2 feet and let it drop. Bump it 1-2-3 an let it drop. Sometimes I could feel the hit or see my line move. It was easy, just crank down an set the hook! Andreas Hackman said. When I hooked a bass, I would just say, I'm back in the house!
