Taking to young kids for a trip to Hopedale this weekend. Have not been there since Katrina hit. Any tips where to go once there? I have a 17' flat boat. I was thinking the march towards Lake Borgne. Has anyone fished there lately? How about the dam? I hear there are so many boats that it gets very crowded. Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.

Hopedale,

Was down there a couple of weeks ago. We found easy limits of reds in the evenings fishing a spot of ours along the rocks in the MRGO. I can't say exactly where we were, but it was within a mile of Campo's in Shell Beach. Talked to some other boaters and they said they saw a lot of fish chasing bait on the banks of Borgne near one of the cuts leading to the MRGO.

If you want to get the kids on some fish bring plenty of bait shrimp and find a spot along the MRGO rocks where the water is coming thru/over the rocks.

Good luck!
