Fall Bank Fishing Lake Pontchartrain

needle fish are indicators of bait fish in the area
 Its September and the speckled trout have begun to move inside and right into the city of New Orleans. This means you no longer have to take the long trek down to the coast to put some specks in the boat you really don't need a boat.  I have been fishing the lake Pontchartrain seawall from the Seabrook to West end and have been catching some good eating fish. You can easily get a nice mess of fish with live shrimp or market bait on drop shot rig with a 1 ounce sinker an eagle claw #1 bait holder hook. Some hot spots have been the Frank Davis pier at night on a falling tide, and early mornings and late evenings all along the steps have been productive. The mouths of the canals where they meet the lake have been the most consistent for speckled trout action. Some other good bank fishing spots are Irish bayou and Bonnable boat launch. This is a great time to take a kid or a fishing newbie the weather is cooler the fish are hungry and easily accessible. Good luck  As always Email me for Launch Locations,Hints,Tips, and to Book a trip FishxScale@gmail.com
