Lake Palourde (near Morgan City) is not too far away, so I went down there for an afternoon fishing trip. Not a whole lot to report, the wind was absolutely insane, causing whitecaps, etc. I put in at Lake End Park marina, then paddled through the waves into the canal that runs parallel to the marina driveway. I fished up and down the canal but didn’t have any great action. I did manage to catch a gaspergou on a small spinner bait.
I had never caught one of these before so I texted a picture to my cousin and he helped me identify it.
He was kind of small so I threw him back. I fished some more but didn’t catch anything. I packed up and headed back home.
