Lake Pontchartrain

Decided to take the boat for a spin today to test out my new Lowrance TI2 Elite 9'. The lake was fairly calm with a slight NE wind. Water temp was 85 degrees. On the way out of the house I decided to bring a pole just to see if the fish had completely left the lake. When I arrived at the Causeway Bridge, almost immediately, I caught a rat red about 14'. Needless to say, he went right back in the water. About 15 minutes later and about 20 sets of pilings down hooked another redfish, 18'. He went in the box. I was just jigging the pilings with a Saltwater Assassin lure on a 3/8oz plain lead jighead. If the weather cooperates this weekend, I might try trolling the bridge. Anyone been fishing the train bridge or the Twin-spans?

Do not know of anyone fishing the bridges but headed to grassbeds with a buddy tomorrow. Great news about reds at Big Bridge,Wifey and I had great meal at new restaurant in Lacombe and we took ride to end of Lake Rd to scope out water clarity and looked pretty good. Love jigging Causeway and SShore has lotta Pilings that stretch from Williams Blvd area W to the Frenier Beach area. Those are Redfish magnets with plenty up to about 24-26 inches. Thanks again for heads up🎣🐠👍😎
