Best baits will be jigs fished around structure, shallow running crankbaits in shad or crawfish colors and soft plastics. Bream, sac au lait, and catfish can also be caught this month in the bayou. Crickets, jigs, shiners, baby crawfish and shrimp should be the most productive baits. On the saltwater side of things a few drum, sheepshead, and the occasional trout or redfish will provide action when conditions are right. If we get a couple of days of below freezing temps, pay careful attention to the Lakeshore Estates area for specks and reds. Much of your success is dependent on the weather. Look for clean warmer water falling out of the marsh to increase your odds of success

Access Info

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.
