Sport Fishing - - BOATS -

Be­tween the two days of off­shore fish­ing, we overnighted at Louisiana’s High Ad­ven­ture at Port Eads lodge just in­side South Pass at the Mis­sis­sippi River mouth. Here we found meals and overnight ac­com­mo­da­tions, as well as fuel and ice. The lodge is marked by the his­toric Port Eads light­house. Com­pletely ren­o­vated just a few years ago, this out­post is ac­ces­si­ble only by wa­ter or air. Each room at Port Eads con­tains three sets of bunk beds, two of which have queen-size lower bunks, as well as a com­mon re­stroom/shower. When book­ing at the bed rate ($65), you might be lodg­ing with other bedrate clients. The pri­vate-room rate ($625) re­serves the en­tire room, no mat­ter what the group size. The lodge also fea­tures Finley’s Res­tau­rant and a large fam­ilystyle din­ing room. Menus and din­ing times are fixed. The fa­cil­ity also of­fers laun­dry rooms, fuel docks, ice ma­chines, and 60 slips with shore power for boats up to 75 feet in length. Port Eads is far more con­ve­nient for boat­ing an­glers than run­ning 20 miles up­river to Venice. As noted in the main story, the NOAA chart for this area warns of se­vere shoals, and some of those in­clude rocks, so it is crit­i­cal to fol­low the aids to nav­i­ga­tion when en­ter­ing or ex­it­ing South Pass.
