Fishing lake P

Looking to do some fishing around the trusses and causeway this weekend sometime. I'm coming from around baton rouge area. I'm wondering what's the best launch to use? Where can I get live shrimp? Thanks
Re: Fishing lake P
I assume you mean the trestles (not trusses)? If so, nearby launches are:

(i) The old Tites on northshore side of Highway 11 right after you come off the bridge (no shrimp)

(ii) The Dock (no shrimp)

(iii) Marina in Irish Bayou (shrimp)

(iv) Rigolets Marina (shrimp)

If you use (i) or (ii), you can buy shrimp at The Bait Shop in Slidell on Highway 11 (Front Street).

You could also launch in between trestles and causeway. I've never used either, but there are launches at Bayou Lacombe and Bayou Liberty. Someone from Mandeville area might chime in on where to launch there.

Check the weather - its going to be pretty windy this weekend. Good luck and post back what you find.
