Hey guys, I'm trying to get back into gigging but I have had no luck. My girlfriend wants to try it so, if y'all can give me a hint on what part of Choctaw bay to try, I would be very very thankful. Thanks guys! If I do get some, I'll post pictures!

Try outside Basin Bayou, north side of the bay.

Next time, qualify it down to the areas you want to travel to. It's hard to IMAGINE where you live.

Sorry, but please refrain from being sarcastic when I am just genuinely asking for help.

You asked for help and someone offered some. Then you said that was too far considering where you live. You didn't put any limitations when you asked for help, only after it was given. It was pointed out that you might want to be a bit more specific when asking for help - then you respond telling them that they're being sarcastic.

That's not sarcastic, that's realistic. How are we supposed to know that you're not willing to trailer your boat and are only asking for spots in your specific area? There was nothing in your original post.

To be honest, I'll be surprised if anyone helps you now. You may want to go back and reread your posts from someone else's perspective. Good luck, you're going to need it now.

Well before the sh!t gets to deep, I will tell ya what has worked for me. Time on the bow of your boat with your lights on. How much time is up to you, and how many you want to stick. Am I going to tell you where to go in your area, hell no. Do I know where to go oh yeah. I have spent thousands of dollars in fuel and improvements to my rig. Pay your dues and the fish will come.


Everyone else, lets cut him some slack, he is new here, and doesn't quite have forum etiquette down pat. Neither do I at times lol
