Bayou Bonfouca

Rating - Excellent   

Saturday, Feb 15 2020
February will not bring many changes from the January pattern that has been working well. The bass being caught are still full of eggs which means they are congregating near their spawning waters. Shallow flats and cuts with deep water access have been productive and will continue to be until the bass drop the eggs. Bream, crawfish, and Shad colored lures have been really hot recently. The colder the water is, the slower the lures should be presented. Plastic worms in an electric-blue and tequila sunrise (crawfish color)) have out-produced any other offerings but you should experiment because bass may want one lure today and a different one tomorrow. Bream are scattered this time of year but the Red-ears have begun showing this winter. Bream can still be caught but you may have to do some moving to locate enough for a fish-fry.
