This was over two months ago, so I don’t remember a lot of details, but I thought it would be fun to share anyway.
Big Alabama Bayou is located in Sherburne WMA in the Atchafalaya Basin. There are a lot of other bayous, ponds, etc. to fish, but I just tried out Big Alabama Bayou.
It was a fantastic day to be out on the water – the bayou is kind of narrow and is thus protected from wind, so the water doesn’t really get stirred up very much. Paddling through the bayou was like sliding around on butter.
It was not a productive fishing day, unfortunately. Just caught one little bluegill (not a keeper). While I was there I saw four or five boats fitted out for bow-fishing combing through the bayou. They were all going after gar, and if I remember correctly I saw a few myself.
These are the gravel roads I talked about:
