Hey yall, I got a friend coming in town (NEW ORLEANS, sorry) and he wants to find some perch or some bass or something near the city. Ive lived here my whole life and only fished saltwater, I know I know.

Any places close to the city,
with and without a boat?
We also have pirogues.

thanks for the help, it is much appreciated.

If ya got pirogues,Bayou St.John should offer some great bass fishing and the closer ya get to the Lake,ya never know ya just might catch a few reds.I have been nabbing a few reds in the Lake on both S and N Shore but I have been fishing structure like PowerLine Pilings,platforms in the Lake and on NShore,the turnarounds on the Causeway.Bayou Segnette,on the West Bank might be an option with a pirogue just be aware that many folks bass fish out there with some big motors pushing those rockets.On the NShore,options abound,especially with a pirogue.Cane Bayou,Bayou Lacombe,Salt Bayou,the Tchefuncte,etc are all excellent and viable options,especially if ya fish during the week and try ya best to avoid week ends!!Hope dat helps and I love pirogue fishing!!
