ugh that sand and the water force . Destroyed most of
my better holes . what the water didn't move the sand covered
up.
what was 8 feet deep is now less than one. others that were
5 feet deep are 20 feet deep now.

i ran aground twice trying to get up the east fork the way i have
ran for years glad i was just putting along. and didn't get stuck on
the sand bars. But the thing is you are not sure which way to go
to get back to deeper water to float your boat.

I enjoy looking for new holes but would like to have a couple you could
depend on for holding fish. The bayou was not destroyed as much as
the east fork. most markers gone from the mouth of bayou i didn't try
to run to main lake yet.

People just be careful running if it is your first time since the flood until
you get a safe track marked.

marker and lined up on the marker at the entrance to red gully
i was running in 8 feet of water till water gradually came up till
i ran aground about 100 yards from the marker i was on the right
side of the marker.. i backed off the sand moved to the left almost
lined up center of marker and idled in varying depths till past the first
island north of luces. and before bj,s

But how do you really feel SK? Ha!
I have been catching a few, mostly black crappie 5-6' down in 8-10' of water. Blue ice on 1/16th oz jig head and black and chartreuse hand tied jig.
Most are undersized though. But 3-6 keepers the last several short trips of 1-2.5 hours or so.
The water is better in Luce, or it was.

I was just heading back to the house at just before dark using the TM.
Got a 3 lb approx black bass on a frog in the pads on my second cast a couple of days ago.
I had re-spooled one rod with some line (I usually fish from back yard a little before dark) and on my first cast, the line broke after about 30 feet of line was out.
Retrieved line to get frog back.
Laid old line on deck, re-tied and on first cast this bass swallowed the frog.
When i flipped him in the boat he wallowed all in the old line I had retrieved while i was trying to keep the boat off the bank and find my hook remover. That is why you see all that line wrapped around the fish. I did release it after the photo.
You bass fisherman are safe from me though as I rarely fish for them.

Gill and I was talking about that the other day, it's for sure a good idea to idle your tracks to make sure of any hazards......
