addict:....The Chain is humming with bass right now. Each of the four main lakes are in slightly different patterns, too. LeHommeDieu anglers have been working carolina rigs just outside the emerging cabbage beds. Geneva has 'em in shallow, jig worms, spinners etc working well here. Carlos is the big water of the chain, and still a bit cool....look over the breaklines, or in the pencil reeds on the north end. Darling has some good weed beds starting up too.

We run a Wednesday night league on the chain...20-25 boats each week. We'll start posting the results so you can get an idea of the sizes they're running. (four fish 13lbs took it last week.)

Give a call and talk to Kent or Putty for some more info.

Good Luck!

LeHommedieu Chain is a great bass fishery you will catch alot of numbers, it's tough to find the big fish cosistently. If I was fishing it I would not mess with much shallow water. i fish the Wenseday night league there has been som nice bags brought in. If you have a 2 1/2 lb average you will be sitting well. 1/2oz Green Pumkin Jigs with Zoom Super Chunks is a great bet for cathcing quality size fish. A good depth to start in is 10- 18 ft. Cabbage weed lines are really starting to get thick. Deep coontail weeds are getting thick in 14 ft out to 22 ft. If you can find the deep coon tail clumps in 17ft and deeper you will get into nice fish.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
