They say that March comes in like a lamb and goes out like a lion. Well, that’s kind of what happened to me in the month of March while on my quest to catch as many different species as I could on the fly. First species on the fly was a chunky bass that I caught on a popper at the beginning of the month with my buddy, Austin Nola.
I continued my quest to catch one of the premier species during the month of March, the sac a lait (crappie). I searched and searched and finally caught a small stringer of 5 or six but I had to resort to shiners in the very dirty water. I finally hit paydirt the last week of the month on one after-work trip and caught a nice stringer of very big sacalait on the chartreuse and black fluff butt!
My only saltwater trip of the month took me to Leeville for our annual Paddle Palooza trournament. What I didn’t catch in numbers made up in quality as I caught a 19 inch speckled trout on a popper
and a 21-inch redfish on a gold spoon-fly.
