A little history:

Lake Pontchartrain is a brackish estuary located in southeastern Louisiana - it is not a true lake but an estuary connected to the Gulf of Mexico via the Rigolets strait and Chef Menteur Pass into Lake Borgne, another large lagoon.

The lake was created 2,600 to 4,000 years ago as the evolving Mississippi River Delta formed its southern and eastern shorelines with alluvial deposits. Its Native American name was Okwata ("Wide Water").

In 1699, French explorer Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville renamed it Pontchartrain after Louis Phélypeaux, comte de Pontchartrain.
