Sunny Day

I'd fish the first day that you've got some good sun forecasted. I'll be fishing on Friday more than likely. From your posts I can see you are hungry for information. The 2 general areas I will fish right now are bayous and oyster reefs. With the rain water pushing bait out of the marsh, bayous are a good place to start. Use google maps to find areas where you can see bayous flowing out of lagoons and marsh. Fish points with current. Work the eddies. Trout will wait in these areas and eat bait as it pops out of the faster current. As for natural oyster reefs, those can be found by drifting the shores of Lake Borgne. After the sun has been out awhile and heated up the reefs trout will congregate there in pursuit of bait doing the same. Bigger trout will usually be on the reefs. It'll take patience and hard work to find productive spots like these. I suggest you hit the western shore of Lake Borgne and drift it, fishing the flats and bayou outflows.
