Freshwater Fishing in Southeast Louisiana

Bank Fishing

Was thinking about taking my little girl bank fishing for some perch/sac-a-lait or bass. Anyone know of any public ponds or any other places? I don't fish freshwater that often, mostly fish in the lake. I'm in the Mandeville area, not looking for wall hangers or secert spots. Just want to take her to catch her first fish. Thanks in advance

This Might Help

Contact Boguechitto refuge office in Lacombe. They have an area on Intersate 59 at the state line that has lakes where you can fish from the banks. Its about 40 min. drive from Mandeville. GOOD LUCK

Thanks for the information, I will check into that. Can't wait to see her reaction when she actually catches a fish and not that litte plastic casting plug.

bank fishing

In Fairview SP there is a fishing dock that runs a few hundred yards along the tchefuncte(sp) river. I tried it during the New year weekend with no luck, but it was cold. It's a nice place, tho. There's a playground there too if the fish don't bite.
