Salt Bayou

Rating - Excellent   

Sunday, Oct 03 2021
Bass fishing remains good. Fish are holding in the runouts and along the weedlines. Best baits are weedless floating soft plastics early. As the sun warms up the bass transition off the banks switch over to a Texas rigged worm. Best times to fish are early and late. Bream can be caught on grass shrimp, worms, crickets or Berkley nibbles. Start fishing a # 8 hook about 18 inches under a cork. Adjust the depth as needed to find the fish.

Best baits are weedless floating soft plastics early. As the sun warms switch over to a Texas rigged worm in Tequila sunrise or black. Bream can be caught on worms, crickets or Berkley nibbles. The mouth of the bayou has been chock full of mullet which has brought in the Jack Crevalle. Drum, croakers, and redfish have been roaming the area and provide decent action on some days. Artificial shrimp have been working the best. Crabbing has been much better this year when compared to prior years.
