"Water clarity is frequently a problem here. I always disliked muddy water - the fish can't like it I wouldn't think. So I ook for clearer waters. Thanks Jeffrey, I sure have gotten lots of ideas from posts that you and others put up, Steve"

Ebb & Flo questions

Down here in the bayous of so central Louisiana they fish the smaller canals, bayous, ditches, etc when the tide is going out. I'm told the fish lie at the mouth of the canal that is pouring into the larger waterway. The fish gather here & wait. Does one fish the mouths, or throw up into the water & let the bobber carry the bait down ? Or does one go up into the canal in the boat, if possible, & ??  I'm after blue gills & the occasional crappie. This is all new to this old…See More

"That sure is a neat article, we always need good PR. One question from your experience = I do well on crappies but only get 1-2 bluegills when I go out on the bayous. What do you think I can do to find more bluegills ?  Thanks, Steve in so la"

steve it is nice to have come across a angler that has fished Arizona, ive never fished for trout in the winter at Patagonia. Im more there in the warmer months, but would go in the winter if I knew what you used for bait and what month it was. all the trout in southern Arizona are stocked, so trying to find them and get them before there all gone is hard. :)

Steve, you lucky dog,here on BBG, you might hear of good places to catch bream and crappy ,  but there is no place better , let me repeat, there is no place better than where you are in south Louisiana. Any where in the  atchafalaya basin is the worlds best fishing and some of the lakes in from the coast are excellent, make sure you go to Avery Island , plus there is some great coastal fishing there too. Like I said "You are one lucky dog! " so let hear you  howl, get into them and tell us about it.    LOFR

We are all about Bluegill, Big Bluegills ( Bluegills, Sunfishes, Red Ears, Brim family) but not to stop there you will read about many different species of fish even some you may not have known even existed in the Blue Gill world and forums with many picture to share, but our main goal is catching that ultimate giant Gill so we can meet that special goal and maybe some braggin rights along the way.
