Big Fish Report: Fishing close to home

(WVUE) -

Finding fish for you each week sometimes means long runs and longer days.  But there are those who prefer an easier day of fishing close to home, and my good friend Ronald Egana is one of those.

“I grew up in New Orleans and we fished Seabrook and Chalmette,” Egana said. “Back then we would fish the MRGO - called it the ship channel - but now that I live out here in Slidell, I got all of this. And I can get in the water in 10 minutes, have a great day, be back home by lunch.”

The good news is Ronald doesn't mind sharing a spot or two, so we got him to give us a good one. We made a short run across Lake St. Catherine to Unknown Pass.

So the bite is officially on. The rocks in MRGO, the trestles in Lake Pontchartrain, and right here in the very well-known Unknown Pass.
