Fishing the Bonnet Carre

From one spillway to another, I fished the Bonnet Carre this past weekend. I was looking for sacalait and potentially some largemouth bass. I did find each, but not in any significant numbers. It was a good time exploring a new fishery though. I’ve driven over it several times on Airline Hwy heading to see Amanda’s family, but now I finally got to fish some of the ponds. There are tons of ponds too, so many places to check out in the future. I didn’t catch too many fish, but that doesn’t mean the area doesn’t have potential. Another thing, for such a beautiful day, I thought I’d see a lot more people, but I was able to have ponds all to myself, which was pretty nice.

    That looks great. Beautiful area. You caught them on your fly rod? I’m off of school the week after Easter. If you’re free, let’s make a trip there or the Blind River.

    • Nothing on the fly. I threw it for a little while, but wasn’t getting any action, not even any bream, so I put it away.
