Big Bass Live Here

Louisiana still produces some surprising catches of big bass each spring. It isn’t unusual for a 10 or 11 CaseyMartin13-1tb anaccopounder to come from Lake D’Arbonne.  And Caney Lake at Chatham usually produces several of those even a little bigger. The state record still stands at 15.97 pounds from Caney. Even Poverty Point is known to give up a double digit largemouth on occasion.

Toledo Bend stays in the mix, too. Just recently in a FLW tournament an angler caught a 13 pound, one ounce bass during the event. I’ve never been lucky – or good enough – to catch one anywhere near that big, much less in a tournament.

How do you do it? Keep your lure in the water. Fish big baits. Fish slow. Be patient. It’s kind of like winning the lottery. Somebody’s gonna do it. And this is the time of the year to give yourself the best shot.
