Capt Louie showed me how.
Went to the backwater/Lake Rousseau to catch some bass. I caught my first mudfish, on a spinnerbait, and one bass on a topwater while Louie cleaned house with a bunch of good bass. He used an original Rapala used as a jerkbait, and a worm for the biggest fish. I tried flipping, spinnerbaits, worms and topwater. Had several blowups on topwater but only one stuck.
