Wish you guys had a "Beer Related" forum. This is beer related. Honest :D.

The boy and I want to go south, catch some crabs, drink a few beers* and surf fish. We usually go to the Cameron/Holly Beach/Johnson Bayou area, but you guys are closer, it's a straight shot on I-49, and we'd like to see some new scenery.

We're guys, and don't mind staying in a shack as long as it's got running water, a stove, a place to pee and take a shower, and something to sleep on.

Any recommendations?

Charlie

*Fishing and seafood is definitely beer related :D

Uhh. You do know it's all marsh south of here, right? No surf fishing. No fishing at all unless you have a boat. The blue crab down in these parts are small too.
As far as running water and heat. You must be joking. Most of the camps off the main roads have nothing but a tin roof and tarpaper for walls. You do your business in the bushes, and there ain't no showers.
My folks have a condo at Cypremort Point, but they don't even trust me to stay there. Even so, without a blue water boat, you won't be able to get to the fish, crabs or shrimp, since there's almost nothing in Vermillion Bay, though you might get some redfish in the cuts if you're lucky. Mostly you just catch hardheads. (Oh yeah, and the black flies are murder.)

Thanks for the info. I had no clue!

We totally failed to find a spot in Cameron too. I guess Thanksgiving is a big holiday on the coast. We'll try again soon.

There is always Grand Isle.

Yeah, you could go east. I hear the southern Atchafalaya has really big crabs, but you would need a houseboat or something. Grand Isle is rather expensive if my brother is to be believed. (Hard to believe much he says, though.)
