I might have to come back east when the tides drop and soak some minnows. Storm minnow time

re: Coming storm surge to push river levels up 2 to 3 feet
I caught a bass two weeks ago on the outside of the marsh at the opening of octave pass. The bass could have swam due east and ended up in hundreds of feet of water without swimming by a single piece of marsh grass. The freshwater is at near record levels and I gotta think there’s no way this could have happened before levees. Too many other places for the water to empty out well before the crows foot delta. This has only been going on for what..90 years...which is a tiny sliver of time relative to how long it took south Louisiana to be created from the river.

They measure nitrate in the river in mg/L.

Meh, before mans intervention they were brackish estuaries, not freshwater. The river use to have multiple outlets upstream of the mouth and would get out of its banks in lots of areas. The amount of flow at the mouth now is substantially more than before.


We've tried to make the Mississippi act like the Nile does naturally.

In doing so, we've transformed a natural body of water into a machine - an engine.

And any mechanical contrivance not only can break, will eventually. 2005 wasn't all that long ago.

re: Coming storm surge to push river levels up 2 to 3 feet
anyone seen an announcement for plan to close Bonnet Carre? I'd heard they're going to start closing some of the gates in the next couple weeks and do it over a week or so period but this storm may impact that.
