I've only fished that area when I was young. I remember catching fish on the bay side of the mouth. A pretty good ways out. It's been along time. We caught specks when they was on. I remember them trots nailing the bait. Rip a zebco out ya hand kinda hard

If you decide to fish that area your best route is through here that canal you have maked is real
shallow as others have said. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1373418975.939110.jpg

My first year living south of I-10 me and bro in-law went thru Onion Lake when the tide was high and fished around south of there a while. Fished til dark and headed back in. Tide was ripping out, and we went about 1/2 mile into Onion Lake kicking up mud and got stuck. 1 hour of pushing and got back into deeper water and kept running onto mudflats so finally tried to go back west and ran out of gas Put trolling motor down and tried to troll out against the tide, and finally ran out of juice. Had to call Vermilion Parish Sheriffs Dept to come and get us. They will NOT tow you back to the ramp, but they will come and pull you to 'safety'. They got there about midnight because they had to get an airboat. Pulled us almost to 4 mile and made us tie up the boat and they took us back to the ramp. Lost a quart of blood from mosquitoes that night. Trust me, that place is shallow

These are some places you can enter the Lil bay off of the four mile safely. I've been seeing crabbers use these paths, so if they can pass, I think almost any bay boat can pass.

stay all the way close to the left bank when running onion lake, stay on step, canal turns to the left when you get to the end of the lake, also goes straight, but very shallow there. It ends in a dead end, I have caught bass and reds the same day back there. but thats been a few years, only thing back there now is flounder.

I would say 3-4' never checked it with a depth finder, but passed it many times in a bay boat. I would be careful pretty much any where in lil bay and fearman with a hard north wind in the winter though.

Default Nice info

I like the info sent concerning 4 mile cut,etc. I would appreciate some pointers as to how you guys are able to draw lines and input messages upon the maps shown. I'm no big computer expert but would like to be able to do some of the stuff you guys have done. Thanks in advance for any help
