Please read the part 1: TheRecreational Fishing in the Louisiana – Part 1 – Nature 13
When I travel from Baton Rouge to New Orleans, I pass through the bridge over Lake Pontchartrain Basin.
I saw many fishing boats both belong to real fishermen and fake fishermen (just for fun).
Fake fishermen refer to recreational and game fishing, include some of my neighbors and friends.
Lake is quite big in size, about 24 mile width, and 40 mile length. It is the largest lake in the Louisiana.
Its contains many aquatic animals, and important to ecosystem. They are including many species of:
- Mussels and Reptiles
Fish species includes:
- Bull shark
- Gulf Sturgeon
- Paddle fishermen
- Plain Brown Craw fish
Mussels live in the lake are:
- Southern Pocketbook
- Southern Hickorynut
We may see reptiles too:
- Snapping Turtle
Off course, we never fishing alligators. We collect crustaceans and mussel with specific gears.
Have you ever fishing by a machine boat in the coastal areas or lakes?
