  1. Details: Sunset Point

    Fishing Pier. One is only a few feet off the bank and the other pier is further out. Can catch bass, catfish, reds, and even speckled trout. It can get packed during ...more wonderful weather and good fishing days.

  2. Details: Red (redfish) Drum

    Caught on 8/24 just getting around to posting. Started off on Causeway looking for redfish, no luck. Started fishing shoreline where Bayou Cane enters the Lake. ...more Saw one tailing but couldn't hook up. Little later this huge bull red swam right at me and gulped my Saltwater Assassin. Released for another day.

    Nice size cat

  5. Details: Spotted (Speckled) Trout

    Got a late start this morning. Most people were coming in as I was going out. Managed to find a few and had a few get off. Should be a good spring in the Lake.
