Specks in the Oak Harbor Canals

Site Sponsor
Sorry no post lately. It has been kind of hectact since the storm but I have been indeed fishing and doing well. The trestle area for the last month or so has been ok. catching between 10-30 per trip. 1/2 lbs. Today although I found a honey hole. The Oak Harbor Canals were stock full of trout and reds. I was just messing around today when I found them. I have never seen anything like this back in these canals. The first 5 trout I caught were all over 20" between 2.5 and 3.5 lbs. It was amazing as I caught my limit of trout and half limit of reds in about an hour and a half. I am going back tommorrow to take pictures on my new digital camera to post. Hopefully it wasn't a fluke. I am shure it is not as the fish were pretty thick. The trick seemed to find a canal around 20' and through toward the bank and jig dudley's down the steep slopes. The shore was droping from 8 to 20 steeply. It was the best bite I have seen in the pontchartrain area this winter and was the healthyest fish I have came across since the storm. Look for the 3 bridges to turn on like a bat out of hell in the next 2-3 weeks. It should be amazing this year. The causeway should fire up in the next 6-7weeks. I cant wait hope too see you out there.
