Trout hanging with mullet on the Trestles

This afternoon trip to the Lake Pontchartrain bridges was just producing small trout and catfish. Then I found an area on the west side of the Trestles where schools of striped mullet were cruising tight to the bridge pilings. Unfortunately, the west side was also exposed to 2 foot waves driven by 12 knot wind, but this was only troublesome for me. The speckled trout hanging near to the bridge pilings didn’t mind.

This was another example of speckled trout preferring the windblown side of the structure and not the calmer water nearby. I have seen this occur in multiple situations this year and so I make myself probe these rough areas despite the discomfort.
