  7. Details: Largemouth Bass

    I hadn't been bass fishing in a while. Been trying to learn saltwater but got tired of not catching much. Hit this guy after about 5 minutes. Beautiful 3.04 ...more lbs. fish. I love bass fishing!

  8. Details: Cichlid

    12 of the 15 keeper bluegill and cichlids @la_outdoorsman_13 and @louisiana_angler and I caught today. Most of the bigger bluegill seem to be hanging out in deeper ...more water.

      well tilapia is technically a type of cichlid so that should make sense @redfisher98
    3. Jacob DeRamus 0
      And they taste pretty similar to tilapia @cole1215
    4. Jacob DeRamus 0
      Yeah you have to keep everyone you catch in Louisiana since they're an invasive species @cole1215
    5. cole1215 0
      You eat cichlids

  9. Details: Cichlid

    Biggest cichlid today with @louisiana_angler and @la_outdoorsman_13. We caught 15 keeper bluegill and cichlids today with many more small ones mixed in. No bass ...more today although I did see a few cruising the shallows. Caught most of our cichlids on beds and most of our bluegill on the walls of the esplanade bridge.

      Are they good to eat?
