I am wondering if there are any spots along the shore of lake ponchartrain that have shrimp close enough to shore that I can cast net them. I know that at certain times of year they do come close In large amounts, but I don't know where and when. Can someone PLEASE help me out?

I have caught shrimp off the steps on the south shore of the lake by lakeview and UNO. It has been a while so i don't remember the time of year.

Certainly not this time of the year, but *sometimes* the white shrimp make a showing in Eden Isles in October, especially if you prebait it with rabbit food. Otherwise.....no, in the Fall the white shrimp are deep in the passes, and as for the brown shrimp in Lake P in May-June---AIN'T DERE NO MORE thanks to the freshwater changes.
