Inshore Fishing in Lake Borgne / Chef Menteur
Rough conditions hungry trout
Made a trip on Tuesday morning to lake borgne. I checked the weather and new the wind would be a problem but it's my last day home so off we go. As we stuck our nose into the lake we were greeted with two foot seas (like expected) but we kept pushing onto our spot. We arrived before daylight and I started working a live shrimp off the bottom and it got nailed. I missed the fish but was pretty sure what had hit me. As soon as daylight hit us we started catching fish in chocolate colored water and 2 foot seas. I was in shock that these fish were taking the abuse of these waves in 4 foot of water. We caught trout reds and drum until around 9 before the wind picked up even more and we headed in. A great day of fishing with these conditions and nothing but smiles and soar joints in the end.
