Hello, everyone! Today we are in a spot that I like to call “The Bend” in Brays Bayou, which is a spot that I recently tried out with my friend Stefano. He had a ton of success with a wide variety of fish so I’m hoping that hot streak continues for me today. Let’s go fishing!
I’m working with a heavy setup today, including Wonder bread on the ned rig, mashed up as always. In this spot, the fish tend to hold in a very distinct area between a patch of grass and what I would refer to as an “out jut” with a bit of current behind it. I’m not sure what’s going on near that grass but there are usually a ton of fish there, including grass carp, catfish, and tilapia, so that’s my target to start things out.
After I noticed my first bite, I had an inclination that it might be a grass carp or catfish and it ended up being the latter. By the way, this is step one of my Bayou Slam! I felt a snag on the next fish and it seemed like he was just hanging there in the current, and it ended up being a great looking tilapia!
After a fairly long delay between the second and third portion of my Bayou Slam, I’m starting to worry when I look at the clock before sundown. I have maybe 15 minutes before this challenge gets significantly harder in the dark, but I started off with a strong cast. It took a bit of work to bring him in but I wound up with a giant beast of a grass carp! This fantastic fighter was definitely one of the bigger carps I have ever reeled in at the bayou!
