News reports have started to come out about the huge impact the repeated opening of the Bonnet Carre Spillway has had on crabbing around Lake Pontchartrain area: https://www.wwltv.com/article/sports/fishing/bonnet-carre-spillway-freshwater-having-devastating-effect-on-louisiana-crab-fishermen/289-1c391526-af80-4156-b8b3-42233e60cd8d One crabber quoted says that he is harvesting only around 15% of what he would normally be taking at this time of year.

It's so bad the commercial crabbers are looking to ask for federal disaster relief to avoid going out of business: https://www.fox8live.com/2019/06/04/crab-task-force-works-request-federal-help-after-spillway-opened/
It looks like this isn't going to be a good year for crabbing in this area

Wow, that's tough to read about. Sounds like a bad season for that area. Hope things eventually get better.
