The fishing pier has been closed since Hurricane Issac. It was damaged by the storm and the resulting storm surge. There are plans to get the pier up and running as soon as possible. There have been some problems with calculating the actual damages caused by the pier. The engineering firm assigned to fixing this dilema is quickly working to resolve all outstanding issues.
Once the pier is up and running, the Garfield Ladner pier will be the best fishing pier on the coast of Mississippi. From this pier it is common to catch red fish, trout, sharks, flounder, crabs and even an occasional sea turtle. (Sea Turtles require reporting to authorities) They need to evaluate before release.
The pier has restroom facilities and lights. There is no diving, swimming, cast netting or crab pots allowed on the pier. You can use crab nets.
Weekends like this remind us of how great living on and visiting the coast of Mississippi can be. Great friends from the coast and New Orleans roll in to share Barbeque, Crawfish and family. The weather is beautiful and music fills the air. The beaches are getting lots of welcome visitors. Have a safe and Happy Memorial Day Weekend. Visit one of the festivals on the coast! Bay Harbor Fest, St Clare Seafood Fest, Pass Christian Jazz.
We are ready for New Years on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The sun is setting on 2011 and we are sailing into 2012. We are really looking forward to all the New Year will bring. Visit Coastal90 during the year for more information on Mississippi Coastal Happenings.
The weather on the Mississippi Gulf coast is just beautiful. Bay St Louis is enjoying this gift from mother nature. Al Jensen over at Serious Bread has this fall like morning wafting the smell of fresh baked scones to listening noses. What a great place, what a great day. All we need now is the train to pass by to make this really fell like Old Town Bay St. Louis. Have a great weekend!
