Bayou Lacombe

Rating - Excellent   

Saturday, Feb 15 2020
Weather determines how we fish in February more than most. This years trend so far has been a bit colder. Sending the fish deeper into more consistent conditions. Lower water levels do the same. Our favorite species are sluggish but the good news is they still need to eat. More good news is with colder, lower water, there is less area to search. Starting on or near the bottom around points and structure with smaller baits and slower presentations will be your best bet. Deeper water means darker colors so look to the black, blue, and purples in your box. If you have the patience, a drop shot rig can be very effective in keeping your bait close to the bottom with enough tension to feel the softest nibbles. The low temps in January have reduced the visible grass and mats but the base near the bottom still exists and will still hold fish. Use that memory if you didnt mark them on your fish finder. With low water, the laydowns will be easier to see. Draw a line to what you think may be the end of the laydown. That should be in the deepest water and start your search. Improve your chances with Sac au lait and other panfish with crickets, worms, and shiners during these tough conditions. 10-12 ft. depth is a good place to start. Get your favorite stinky bait and look for catfish that tend to be found in greater numbers this time of year. While the conditions for fish and to be fishing are more challenging this month, its not impossible to have a successful trip. Keep an eye on the current reports coming from your favorite stretch of water to improve your chances.
