Big Fish Report: A good weekend for boaters, anglers

Big Fish Report: It's spring and the fish are (practically) in the air

(WVUE) - A good weekend for both boater and anglers, a good sign of our winter weather moving in spring-like directions, and good deals for anyone looking for boats or boating equipment.

Lake Pontchartrain is showing signs of life. Specs continue to be caught in Lakeshore Estates, and the trestles are starting to produce a few fish if you are patient.The hotspot on Lake Pontchartain continues to be the Causeway Bridge.

Jerk baits like the new Berkley Nemesis work best. Over in the Biloxi marsh, redfish are just about everywhere you stop.

The New Orleans Boat Show is this weekend. Come see me in the Benton Marine booth. I'll be looking at several new bay boats. We can talk hotspots , tackle bait and more. You can also sign up for the CCA star tournament.
