    cat, I understand where you are coming from. I have been watching the Louisiana post for members from Rayville, Delhi, Epps, oak grove, and Lake Providence for awhile now. I am originally from Louisiana and have fished in those areas many times. I sure would like to get more members from this area to join. We could have a good gathering in this area. My home town was Start,Louisiana yep Start, the same Place that Tim McGraw is from. By-the-way what town are you from? :confused: :glare: :D

    I'm originally from Houston,Tx-been living here for about a year. I've been coming up here for about 3 or 4 years,though. Right now I'm living in Madison Parish (Tallulah). There's some pretty good fishing around these parts if you know where to go. Catfish are everywhere and the crappie-outstanding.

    9 or 10 lbs is common, biggest one out of the lake was 30 some pounds. It's a pretty new lake.

    Are the months of March and April usually good cat fishing months on Poverty Point?

    I know the guy that caught the 34, it was his first time on the lake. He is the "white perch" master out there too.

    There are without a doubt blues in Poverty Point. I have pics of many, some showing anal fin spine count. I catch as many blues as I do channels there.

    I started fishing it mid-summer last year and it was insane. Game warden told me the catfishing is AMAZING in the spring, so March and April should be great.

    Ready to catch some white perch this spring too... apprently it's shoulder to shoulder out there when they are on.

    The Macon is known for big flatheads... unfortunately I've been unable to find any public access to it.

    Dave, thanks so much for the info. Vetrock is my son in law and we are sitting here talking about our trip the last week in March. We are ready to catch cat and perch.

    Nothing in Poverty Point like you have in your avatar, but if I can find access to the Macon... supposed to be some BIG flatheads in there!
