My favorite spot in the city
Avatar of Smithsman.fisherman

This is my favorite spot in the city, the water is clear and you can sight fish your fish, I target rio grande cichlids but you can catch bass, bluegill, mullet, yes I said mullet (use shrimp) gar and catfish. Sometimes during the year the city will open the gates at the end of the bayou that lets salt water and salt water fish from lake Pontchartrain. So you can catch redfish, speckled trout, drum and crabs. So you should give it a try, Good luck!
