Default Trip of a lifetime

Hi there fellow bassers. I am new to the site. Just wanted to share a rare fishing trip with ya. I recently caught a five bass limit that weighed just over 37 lbs. This is my best trip in 47 years of bassin. These were the two biggest at 10.3 and 10.1 lbs. I thought I was on Lake Falcon! This spring has been a really great year here for both numbers and size of the bass. I have had about a dozen trips where I boated over 80 bass a trip! A bad trip has been about 20 or so. This area of the huge La. Delta has really taken off a few years ago when the Corp of Engineers completed the world's largest freshwater diversion canal. The channel brings freshwater directly from the Miss. River about 5 miles and then dumps it into a huge wetland area about 4 times the size of the Everglades. This fresh water is sent into the Delta to help stem the loss of wetlands caused by saltwater intrusion.
This is only about 2 miles from my house. The first lake that receives the river water is called Lake Cataouache. The average depth of this lake is only about 5 feet, and it is a grass fisherman's paradise ( full of hdrilla). If you love topwater bassin, frog action, buzzbaitin, etc- you'd love this lake. The Bassmaster Classic will be in Alabama next spring, then on this Delta again the following spring. The launch site,( Bayou Segnette State Park), is located only 4 miles from this lake. Since January, there have been over 100 bass weighed in exceeding 8 lbs. I do not know how many that were caught and not weighed in at the two launches that serve this area. The largest bass caught this year was a 13.8 lber. I think the Classic weight record will fall at this one. Then, my bass paradise will be overflowing with wide eyed bassers- lol.

What if I don't want you to know where my new honey hole is?

Assuming rock lets me in on the secret, that is...

Sounds like an awesome place to wet a hook. I live about 90 miles north of Nola, I might have to make some plans.
