All this talk about surf fishing reminds me of a place I used to go to all the time, but haven't in years - the beach at Fourchon, on the way to Grand Isle, Louisiana. There has been all sorts of beach erosion, so it probably isn't what it used to look like, and the barges they anchored about 100 yards offshore to slow the erosion down are probably long gone with the storms of the past few years. I'll have to check it out, though - in the right wind conditions (light, and not out of due south), the water is clear, and this time of year you can really do well on flounder. The best fishing is from shore to the first sandbar anyway, so it isn't very deep. Think I'll take the 9wt down there sometime.
