Louisiana Sportsman fishes Lake Borgne with Captain Jacques

Rusty Tardo from Louisiana Sportsman heads to Lake Borgne with Captain Jacques via Shell Beach and rakes in the bountiful speckled trout along the banks. Tardo was skeptical of the trip but Captain Jacques was more than happy to prove him wrong.

“Where we headed, Captain Jacques?” I asked, figuring he’d say, “Biloxi Marsh.”

“Into the lake. We won’t have to run far to catch fish today,” said Laboureur, who owns Jakamo South Fishing Adventures. “The trout are stacking up along the drains and cuts and mouths on both the east and west side of Lake Borgne, so we’re going to do the shore thing this morning.”
