Great Spot For All Kayakers

Great for everything. Fishing the beach for flounder and Reds and ships hold a lot of fish to. Usually a nice paddle anywhere. Just take in account for the tide moving in and out.

I grew up hunting and fishing the back woods of Louisiana all winter, and backpacking the mountains all summer. I try to spend every free moment skiing, backpacking, fishing or finding an adrenaline rush!
