The lake is brackish and suffered some fish kills from Katrina but is coming back. Big flatheads in the main lake and all the rivers feeding into the lake have big blues. Look for moving water to catch the blues and try live bait or big bloody baits for the flatheads in the main lake holes. If you want to catch the big flatheads they are know to school in the summer under the hwy 55 and 51 bridges. Channel cats are everywhere and always ready to hit. You can pretty much fish for the cats most anytime of the year but it is best from April until October. Hope this helps!
