FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR FISHING RODEO
What is a fishing rodeo?
Fishing rodeos are large-scale tournaments where folks of all ages hit the waters in a battle for big fish and bragging rights and occasionally prizes. As much a part of Louisiana’s summers as festivals or flip flops, fishing rodeos turn out neighbors, friends making wagers, kids excitedly playing, and grandparents watching shade-side as everyone aims to catch the day’s biggest fish.
Are their bass in Lake Pontchartrain?
They usually congregate in shallow waters, and one of the most productive spots to target them is the marsh right next to the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway.
What is the best bait for lake Pontchartrain?
Some say the best bait is live shrimp but frozen shrimp works well also. It’s not too complicated with drum as a simple jig head with bait will work.
Are their sharks in Lake Pontchartrain?
Lake Pontchartrain connects to the Gulf of Mexico via the Rigolets and Chef Menteur passes—which is how dolphins, bull sharks, and other marine life swim in and out of the lake.
