Swamp Music

In late April I checked on the fish down in the Maurepas Swamp. I was hoping to run into some sacalait or maybe a choupique on the fly. I think I was a bit late in the year for any sacalait action and unfortunately I didn’t come across any choupique either, but I had decent action on the local sunfish. It wasn’t as hot as the last time I was down there, but I was happy to have fished it this year while the irises were in bloom and prior to Hurricane Ida’s arrival.

Largemouth bass
Warmouth (Goggle-eye)

It was a nice little mixed bag, which tends to happen in the swamp, and a nice day on the water before a front rolled through. That’s what forced me off the water, the rain moved in and it stormed a good bit as I was loading the kayak.
