Cypress Cove Marina, La. - following Hurricane Isaac
I visited Cypress Cove in February. Awesome place. Just up Hiway 23 from the famous "Venice Marina" (at the end of the world). And the Woodland Plantation, a really nice B&B style stay over. Super low lying area. But, Incredible fishing! Also, Hiway 23 is lined with fishing guide lodges. Yes, fishing guides can and did have super nice lodges there, with 4-5 identical bay boats, ready to go parked out front.
Many of you TV fishing shows came from this area since Katrina. Roland Martin, Bill Dance, Jimmy Houston, Hank Parker, many of the Florida Keys guys with shows, even my favorite of all time. Larry Dahlberg's Hunt for BIG Fish. Fished out of this area, and they stayed at these facilities.
You go down there for two things.
* work in the oil industry
There's scattered Orange groves, and mobile homes, refinery's, and even fields of Cattle on the way there.
They'll be back
