Katrina; "yep, the storm, it hasn't kelp us down folk's,
we're better than ever, building new stuff, such as
a "NEW RV PARK", NOW YOU CAN RENT RV

There's a "NEW OPEN AIR PAVILION", with
picnic tables, a live bait shop, and Ricky didn't
stop there either, he's built another three bedroom,
two bath unit on the bay side. "See the aerial

left to park anything at all, so call early
for an RV parking spot, we had many disappointed
customer's last year, because we had to turn so many
on them away, Ricky hates that, but there was just
no more room. The aerial was shot before the
"NEW PAVILION" and the "NEW", three bedroom unit was
built, so we've labeled where things are.

being over and all, Ricky turned the space where
building's were destroyed by Katrina into RV Parking
Spaces, quite a novel idea down you think? Now he's
serving the public with a greater expansion of
services and there's a a lot of people having a ball
with an RV Park that has showers, a Laundromat,
lighted fishing pier, tackle shop, live bait, and
other amenities at a reasonable price. Now you can
come down, park your RV, stay a night, a week or
weeks, or as many months as you want to stay.

Danny reached into the
live well, grabbed a squirming live mullet
about 8 inches long, ran a 5/0 hook through
his eyeballs, dropped him over the side of
the boat and I watched the 8 ounce sinker of
his triple wire rig drag the bait through
the clear water until it was out of sight. I
thought to myself, I need to get fishing. I
reached into the live well, grabbed another
live mullet, ran my hook through his
eyeballs, and just as I was putting the bait
overboard I heard Danny grunt. I turned to
see his rod bent double in a strained curve,
then his reel drag began screaming as
whatever he had hooked headed south and was
putting the pressure on. I grabbed up my
camera to get some pictures of Danny
fighting this fish, hoping for a big old Red
Snapper, Grouper or Cobia, "Called Lemon

sallied forth one evening with
camera in hand to visit with the
customers at the motel and RV
park. What I found was that the
motel and RV customers alike
enjoyed each others company. I
spent several hours taking
picture of customers cooking,
showing off their fish, and in
general having a great time.

OH, MY; are the Speckled Trout

fish from left to right is
Danny, his friend Author and last but
not least Ricky Bourg himself.
These guys just never fail to
amaze me, at the super strings
of trout they catch. These are
what I call "Rock Pile Trout",
yep, they were caught around the
rock pile's found in the passes
and they also surround the
island in broken piles.
I was looking
back through the picture
archives taken at Grand Isle
from past years and also this
year, "2007", and I can't find a
bad trout year, every year at
this time, March, 2005. the
