Wife and I headed out to Trestles in Slidell this morning to break the Coronavirus isolation routine. Got right on some Reds early, had one 30” Red break my wife’s line right at boat, then another one right after that. She eventually boated a nice 17” drum and an 18” Red, all on V&G Terror Tail by Deadly Dudley in Blue Chartreuse. Water was calm and a little dirty with some algae bloom starting to show up at Trestles. Mississippi River water from Bonet Carrie Spillway quickly muddying up Lake Pontchartrain.😕 Later in the morning the wind picked up and tide starting moving and I got one nice 17” trout in cooler and missed several nice ones that got off before I could net them. Once wind started pushing up some white caps after lunch we headed in. Beautiful day on the Lake today!
