The Fishing Edge: Myrtle Grove
The Myrtle Grove area has one of the most diverse areas for fishing in the Louisiana coastal marshes. Winter time fishing is a great producer for the area, but it also offers a good fishing during the entire year. It shows shallow reefs, islands and peninsulas that dot the whole area. The area is usually defined by Bayou DuPont on the west and Wilkerson Bayou (not canal) by Lake Hermitage (Perez) on the east. The Myrtle Grove Edge covers an area from the Wilkinson canal by Highway 23 to Barataria Bay, from Bayou Dupont by the Lafitte Pen to West Point a la Hache. It has waypoints in and around Baptiste Bay, Lake Hermitage (Perez) along Bayou Du Pont, Wilkinson Bayou with its 15 feet deep hole and Wilkinson Bay, Wilkerson Canal, Bay Chene Fleur and Raquette Bay. It also has the location where the Four Pilings were located in the upper Barataria Bay area. It has over one-hundred such waypoints, which include some “favorite spots”. Such as Bobby’s Red Fish Spot and Government reef at the north part of Barataria Bay by the four pilings at the Well Site
This area offers a great variety of year around fishing.
