Forty miles to the east of New Orleans in upper St. Bernard Parish lies a vast 40,000-acre swath of marshland known technically as the Biloxi Wildlife Management Area. The locals call it either the Louisiana Marsh or the Biloxi Marsh, but whatever you call it, the fringe lakes and bays produce some great speckled trout and redfish action this month.
The hotspots for speckled trout fishing seem to be fairly well-known. The marshes of Terrebonne, Lafourche, Jefferson and St. Bernard parishes have oodles of trout, mostly modest-sized but making up in number for what they lack in size.
Perhaps Rodney Dangerfield didnt get any respect because he acted in a way that wasnt deserving of respect. As most anybody in a leadership position will tell you, respect has to be earned rather than demanded.
Extreme Southwest Louisiana has a secret that it doesnt want you to tell. You see, while lines of anglers wait to launch their bay boats into the fertile waters of Calcasieu Lake, there is an equally productive lake not too far away where its more common to see a lonely loon than it is lots of loony anglers.
