Inshore Fishing in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
I fish this area religiously and frequent both dockside and rigolets marina...were seeing the same problem we've had in past years. The salinity levels in the lake aren't were they used to be so the shrimp simply aren't coming in like they were in years past.

Inshore Fishing in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
Looking for a camp in the slidell area to rent out during the week when i'm off from the fire house in baton rouge so i can fish a couple days in a row without pulling the boat back and forth. Don't mind doing all the cleanup just need a place to dock the boat and lay our head down after fishing. Any leads would be greatly appreciated!

Hopefully the storms and winds will calm down soon so the water will clean up. Anyways if your looking for the....  Read More
