Fishermen pull in limit of sac-a-lait in Salvador
Bruce McDonald with a nice sac-a-lait caught in Lake Cataouatche on a blue/chartreuse 1/32 ounce mini jig 24 inches under a cork.
Pete Cassagne and I made two fishing trips to Lake Cataouatche and the Lake Salvador Management Area. A report came in from Lake Salvador that sac-a-lait were in the first canal on the left past the barge in the Gulf Canal.
Cassagne and I made the run from Pier 90 and arrived around 3 p.m. - immediately we caught three sac-a-lait along the grass beds and lily patches.
We used the red/white/chartreuse mini jig fishing 24 inches deep under a cork in dark clear water. We started at the corner point of the canal and moved along the edges of the grass beds picking up 10-inch sac-a-lait on every cast with an occasional 1-pound bass.
By 6 p.m. we had caught our limit.
“I haven’t caught sac-a-lait like this in a long time,” Cassagne said. “I can’t remember the last time catching a limit of sac-a-lait.”
Catfish are biting on earthworms along the cuts on the north shoreline of Lake Cataouatche. Bream are hitting the 1/32-ounce blue beetle spin with a gold spinner, any color mini jig, and earthworms under a cork. Bass are still biting on white/chartreuse spinner baits, crank baits (crawfish or white) and the junebug and watermelon red baby brush hog.
Find clear water and a fisherman will have success.
On our second trip, Judge Lauren Lemon joined us as we ventured out to Lake Cataouatche. We were all excited because of the success we had on a previous trip.
Today was a completely different day.
The winds had moved the lilies, the water was muddy, and the sac-a-lait weren’t biting. We fished our usual spots without catching a fish.
Along the bulkheads, we managed to catch six big sac-a-lait. Lemon boated four out of the six sac-a-lait with a blue/chartreuse 1/32-ounce mini jig 24 inches under a cork and was all smiles.
“That is why fishermen call it fishing instead of catching!” Lemmon said.
