T-Man and other people familiar with the waterways in and around Lafitte, where are the best fishing spots in that area? I finally have my Louisiana Fishing License and Keith and I are going fishing this weekend and we are launching out of Lafitte. Any answers and comments would be very greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.
I would go and fish Bayou Dupont at the south side of the Pen, try the first three or four bends in the bayou. You can drift the Pen with a popping cork and sparkle beetles for trout. These spots keep you close to the launches in case bad weather pops up, and you have no choice but to get out of the rain and the lightning. Live bait is not necessary, but you may do better with it. I usually just fish the plastic.
Your best bet would be to go early, and leave early. The weather does not look promising.

Thank you T-Man. We ended up trying several spots. We went behind Manilla Village and went to about 10 minutes out of Grand Isle and we went to the Texaco Canal. All I caught was a 2nd and 3rd degree SUNBURN!
I think that Keith should have followed your advice, would have at least caught some fish.
Apologies that I took so long to inquire how y'all did!! LOL!! ;D Yep! Shoulda took T-man's advise. The southeast shore of Bayou Dupont usually holds lots of fish. I have caught specks, reds, and bass there. Take some sunscreen along next time out!! ;)
SKYSUMMIT: I'm thinking this hurricane season will keep us a little busy. Nothing scientific, but just the idea that it really hasn't been hyped that much.

PinkFreud: No offense to whomever keeps changing the look of this forum, but this white theme is driving me crazy. What happened to the nice blues and grays?

coffeecups: That 'some rain on Friday' became a tornado about 3 miles away (as the crow flies). What a surprise! Glad I didn't have any flooding!

SKYSUMMIT: Yea, other than maybe some rain on Friday, we may be in a dry stretch.

coffeecups: Mother Mary took care of my property again. Even the cat's food and water were by the door instead of floating to the drain. AMAZING!

coffeecups: Good to hear from you Sky. Is anyone else here??????
May 1, 2017 21:22:36 GMT -6
SKYSUMMIT: Actually Coffee..I haven't been around that much either. At least not nearly as much as I used to. Work has been extremely busy! It's a busy busy time in real estate

coffeecups: Came home to Harvey from Slidell. Had a little rain here and there. There was no rain in Slidell when I left at 3:30pm. While in NO EAST, I saw where it looked like it was storming around Covington going towards Slidell. Wet but no rain when I got home

coffeecups: I will eat some strawberries on my cruise in early May---just a few of course, as long as I stay away from my better half.
