I am a new resident of the Denham Springs area. I'm from N. Louisiana and have grown up bass fishing. I have a 16/1.5ft. Vip Stealth with a 120 force. I am interested in trying some saltwater fishing around W. or N. Coast of the Pontchartrain due to the smaller size of my boat. Does anyone have any tips or recommendations on where is a good place to launch and any quick tips on what to fish with and where to go? From viewing all the post on this site and others, yall have got me interested in some saltwater fishing. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

You can fish the west end of the lake from Pevine Launch it is off of Old Hwy 51 in Laplace, fish around the power lines and around the pilings close to the interstate. Be careful around the stumps and pilings not to run up on them. I wouldn't venture to far from the launch till you learn more about the lake and how it gets with the winds.

You can also fish Lake Maureaspas there is a good launch on Hwy51, I like to fish the train bridge in the pass, you never know what you'll catch. Might be a red or trout,then could be a catfish or a lake runner. The bridge is only about a 5min run from the launch, you can also take the pass to Lake Pontchatrain and fish the mouth of the pass.

Get you some deadly dudleys and some #4 spinners with purple and red cochaos, also some market or live shrimp.

You can also launch at the end of the spillway levee in NORCO, there is also launches at the end of WILLIAMS BLVD and at the end of Bonnabel Blvd. Just be mindfull of the weather if you get out in the lake.

Lafitte is closes salt water fishing spot other than the lake from your area. Lake is a great place to fish but it has a lot of open water. Lafitte can give you the best of both fresh and salt water fishing. Bass had its big show there and the red fish tour. is there all the time. Not a hard place to learn and a lot of protected area to fish. Most of the guides and marinas will help you on where to fish. Joe's landing has live bait and you can purchase a live bait battery set up for less than 20 dollars give it a try. Great bass fishing & the short car ride is the plus for this area. You can fish in the am then have a great lunch and brake at Jan’s and then fish the pm bite. Jan’s is only a short drive from all marinas.
