(WVUE) -

If you are serious about fishing this weekend, conditions are looking pretty good.

Hopes for a good spring in Lake Pontchartrain have improved while the Bonnet Carre Spillway closes, but river silt can still be seen in Lake Borgne.

The drop-offs along the MRGO are producing and Shell Beach Marina owner Bobby Campo says he still has live shrimp.

Jack tells us Delacroix fishing is spectacular, with many of lakes and bays very productive.

Captain Lloyd Landry is catching specks in the flats along Joshua's Launch in Buras. He says go west for cleaner water.

And Captain Tommy Ponner showed us nice-sized trout from Cocodrie. The key is being quiet, as the water is very clear and the fish are easy to spook.
