BASS BASICS, A new feature of ACADIANABASS to help new bass fishermen read about the basics or seasoned fishermen who would like to brush up. These are the beliefs that I have used to guide me in this exciting passtime. They will be covered by the four seasons that bass use to survive. Choose the season:



The area clubs had a shootout Sunday, March 23, at Lake Fausse point, called the Top Ten Tournament. So called because the top 10 fishermen in each club represented the club in this event.

Catahoula Bass Association came out first. Followed by last year's winner, Lipari Hog Fighters. Louisiana Bass Cats came in third and Coteau Bass Hustlers took fourth. This was a fun event where everyone caught fish. The standings change from year to year. This was Catahoula's year, congratulations!
