May and Barataria Bay go together like Christmas and Santa, like Brad and Angelina, like cheese and whiz. […]
The Atchafalaya Basin and google-eye bream just kind of go together — like grits and eggs or beans and rice. I was in the saddle with the old Atchafalaya Basin pro, Jim Looney, the author or four books on fishing bass and an astounding seven books on fishing for bream and sac-a-lait in the huge swamp. […]

Tricking trout is the name of the game. […]
