Inshore Fishing in Lake Borgne / Chef Menteur
Lake Borgne strange fish????
Drifted across Lake Borgne near the Rigolets today. Clean water. The water was being busted up by a fish I did not recognize. I have fished since I was 5 (35 now), but I couldn't recognize this fish. We threw into the fray, but only caught ladyfish and gafftop. The fish in question leaped from the water in arcs about a foot off the water and they looked like little tuna. Not sure what they were, but my 20 lb. leader line got broken three times. Might have been sharks, but I really want to know what this leaping fish was. Looked broad in the middle when it jumped with a forked tail; and there were hundreds of them. Any help is appreciated.
