most people fish from the Bossier side. To get there take Hwy 71 (Barksdale Blvd.)south about 10-12 miles you will see a sign turn rt. most folks use cut shad so bring a cast net. let me know when you are going to be in.

You might need something a little larger than that. I use a 13 foot rod, ($28) A $20 reel, and Power Pro 30 lb braided line($22) But just let me know when you're in town, and we'll try and link up, I've got an extra rod and reel, and I make my own spoons. You can fish with me for a day and try it out before you go spending any money!
