as am I. Do you find the fishing as easy in Lake P as compared to Venice? I mean, it seems the pressure on Lake P makes it more challenging. Whereas, in Venice, you have to really screw up to not catch fish.

Like I said though, it may not be as bad as some are thinking. Imagine if it turned into another TB?

The ducks would just be a bonus.

So many variables suc has where I'm fishing to what time of the year.
If targeting hogs only on the bridges then sure,they're a very hard fish to catch and it takes a bunch of time and failed trips to finally start to understand them.
Same with the waders in Big Lake.

Those huge fish didn't get that way from being dumb.

I've struck out many more times in Grand isle and Venice that I have in the Lake P estuary.

I understand but something along those lines is not impossible out of the question. Especially along the north side of the lake.

Well can all at least agree that they should blow all the levees south of BC?


This, or at least make strategic cuts in the levees to allow fresh water into the marsh. I really don't see why this is so complicated and why coastal restoration would cost billions.

re: Converting LakeP into freshwater


I gotta theory on this kinda stuff (stuff like turning a salt/brackish water lake into a fresh water lake).......


there's a reason GAAAAAAWWWWWDDDDDD his own self put that lake there the way he did. You just don't understand reason.....

Anytime man/the corps/me and you try to "undo" nature, its generally a bad plan. See Mississippi River Delta's, Upper Ouachita Refuge/WMA, etc.....

When I was a kid, we used to cach trout in Lake P behind the houses on Folse Street in Metarie. This was like 1975 - 1980. We'd ride down Transcontinental, back to our houses, w/stringer of trout hanging off the handlebars.

In the 80's, the lake was dredged for it's shells, for use in construction, and was turned into choc milk. the fish left.

when the moratorium on shell dredging started, environmentalist said, "great, in a hundred years, the lake will be back to normal,and the trout will return".

they came back the next year I'm told. I had already left south la by then, so I can't verify.

anyway, the point of the story if that we pretty much need to leave chit alone.
