I wanted to do some fresh water fishing tomorrow (bass, blue gill or catfish). I don't have class tomorrow, but I don't want to travel too far away from New Orleans. Any suggestions?

Do people catch anything along there? I tried once about ten years ago, and didn't catch anything, but we weren't fishing too seriously.

We've caught fish at Ruddock. There are always people on 51 so I'd assume they are catching fish. Throw out a shrimp and you are sure to catch something.

I called a friend who knows the area well, and he told me Ike and Gustav pushed lots of saltwater into the area and there was a big fish kill. So I think I'm going to head down south, along Hgwy 1, maybe ending up in Grand Isle. Sarah's Diner, the best fried seafood anywhere, may be lunch time!

Sarah's shrimp were as good as I remember them. Caught about two dozen crab and one black drum from the public fishing pier. Guy next to me caught his limit of drum, including a 50 pounder.

Two dozen crabs? So what time is dinner and I need directions to your house.

Hi TulaneStudent,
Try Pontchartrain Hotel and Bayou Segnette State Park. They are great places for fishing and you don't have to travel more also. Don't forget to share your catch with us.
