Recreational fishing in Iberville Parish is on fire in the Atchafalaya Basin and other area waterways such as Grand River, Bayou Plaquemine, Bay Natchez, Pat's Bay, and etc. Bass fishermen have been catching large mouth bass in the Atchafalaya Basin at daylight using topwater baits and during the day using plastic worms on the bottom. The fish are hungry. Low water levels are concentrating bass in the channels near points and run-outs. For local water levels, refer to the Atchafalaya Basin Program Website, http://www.dnr.louisiana.gov/sec/atchafalaya. Bream and perch continue to feed aggressively on live bait such as night crawlers and crickets around cypress knees, stumps, and fallen dead trees near the banks. White perch, locally called "sac-a-lait" are biting live shiner minnows, artificial jigs, and beetle-spins around fallen willow tree tops and other natural bank structure in the Atchafalaya Basin, Grand River, Ramah Borrow Pit Canals, and Bayou Plaquemine. Channel catfish, bluecats, and flatheads can easily be caught on flowing waterways such as the Atchafalaya River, Grand River, Mississippi River, and the Intracoastal Canal fishing with live night crawlers, live catalpa worms, and/or stink bait on the bottom. Crawfishing prices are falling and the season is winding down.
