The rain and water now headed down the river from Toledo Bend hasn't completely screwed up a very good bite yet, but it will. It seems to happen every March without fail. We were fighting some really big south winds with good success, but the added glut of fresh water may put that bite to rest. We finished up last week fishing in the rain and while the trout bite slowed some, the reds were still doing their thing.
Their was a very decent bite on topwaters and Corkies early in the week, but it slowed a little by Friday. Most of those fish were in 3 to 4 feet of water and, for a change, the early bite was better than the afternoon bite. Could well be all about the tides. The redfish bite was still better for us in the open lake than the bayous. Every thing on the north side of the ICW was muddy.
We'll just have to see how this all plays out. Some of the folks in the Deweyville area are already are already dealing with minor flooding. Minor flooding is kind of like being slightly pregnant. It either is or it isn't!
