Beaten, battered and flooded Lake Pontchartrain is now back to normal and should load up with fish after hurricane Isaac. It was a ruff week for all in SE louisiana during an under estimated hurricane Isaac, but again due to a resilient community we are back ready at DockSide ready to serve those who are ready to fish a now very salty Lake Pontchartrain. What storms like these do is push bait into the lake. The most important is a surge of white shrimp, and we all know what follows white shrimp, SPECKS. We have been steady catching loads of nice white shrimp in the biloxi marsh which will now be pushed into Pontchatrain.
One fishing technique that we don’t usually use in the Lake is watching for birds. I highly recommend this technique after hurricanes though because the white shrimp are being driven up out of the water from specks and the birds are there to tell us fisherman where the fish are, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for diving birds all through out september. Also make sure to keep your eyes peeled for debris and sunken trees just like after Katrina. Beside the use of live shrimp, live Shad (Poaggies) are the best in the fall.
Make sure to watch the most updated videos on www.DockSideLA.com as the DockSide crew will be out in full force looking to see where this storm packed the fish in, hopefully everywhere. Keep up with us here at www.DockSideLA.com and we will be finding the fish to help show people whats new now another powerful hurricane has come and gone again in SE Louisiana. Hope all are safe from Isaac and keep your head up.
