Default Yellow River Today 3/22/12

My son and I put in at Bagdad around 0930, Oyster pile landing I believe is what it is called. Our first time. We went to left, north, just a little bit and went left. We drifted and threw crank baits of all colors and got a speck on blue and white and got two reds, one slot at 20", on green chartreuse. The wind was really doing it's thing. We left at 1:30 before the rain came in. This was my first time to catch a Red and my first time catching anything on a lure. Never to old to experience something new. Pictures to follow.

That was my first time there. We launched at Bagdad public launch ramp and went left to the first split, about 500 yds I guess. There was a bridge that cars was going back and forth on that we went under, I don't know the name of the road they were on. It was a good place to fish and I will be back.

Now I want to find a spot somewhere I can take the grand youngons and they can catch sunfish,brim or anything. That's my biggest thrill.

Canal st. A good place for bream would be on the yellow river launching right off Hwy 87 bridge on your left theres a launch if you have a smaller boat you can launch if not down by ward basin theres a launch. Crickets and worms under a bobber should produce some bream.

Continue under that bridge, start fishing the banks around the second bend, you will find what you are looking for

Thanks Jaster, I really appreciate that info. Last night I googled Yellow river and came up with where boat ramps are and at the same time realized that we wasn't in the Yellow. It's all a learning experience and a fun one to boot.
