With still over half of the bays opened in the Bonnet Carre Spillway and Mississippi River waters gushing into Lake Pontchartrain, Capt. Chas Champagne was able to find a few speckled trout (this video was taken March 28)!
He caught 7 on this day and 22 two days before that. “It’s tough but there’s a few,” he told the Sportsman.”It’s a ghost town out there. I’d be starving to death if we still owned a marina there.” Champagne previously owned Dockside Bait and Tackle which closed it’s doors in 2014.
This avid angler and Sportsman’s go-to guy for Lake Pontchartrain fishing reports, lives in Slidell and fishes the north shore area of Lake Pontchartrain nearly every week.
