You can go to norco and ride the spillway levee to a lil park playground, nature trail, and fishing area with a small pier.
Mandeville has a pier called sunset point. There is a pier that goes quite a-ways out into ponchtrain. Its lit at night and people fish. I was there 2 weekends ago and they were catching right before dark, few trouts and reds, shrimp on the bottom. also u could go madisonville and go to the end of the road where the tfunctche (sp?) river meets lake ponchtrain. (Maybe flooded for now) We also saw a sea otter when we were at sunset point.
There is seabrook/frank davis pier. They are doing A LOT of construction and I couldn't find it on a hermit crab hunting trip. (Long story. lol)
Slidell is probably the next closest, chef pass around the hwy90 bridge. Lots of traffic be careful if ya bring young uns, make sure you have a license too.
Rigolets marina may habve live bait, get some, bring/buy an aerator n bucket to keep your bait alive, or bring a cast net and catch your own. Good luck.
