Pass A Loute vs. Atchafalaya Delta

I know it a few months til most will begin to think about duck season, but I am already getting the itch. I just wanted to get a thread going about which place do people think is better, Pass A Loute in Venice or Atchafalya Delta in Morgan city???? Every year my son and I take a week long trip to one or the other chasing ducks. They each have their pros and cons, just wanting to get others thoughts and opinions. Feel free to comment about hunting conditions, type and amount of birds, camping conditions, and crowds.

Venice
I can tell you about Venice but not Acfal.If no hurricans it can be great. There are several camping areas South pass,which gets you to both sides of south pass.The camping spot off Loomis that gives the center part of the wma.Also the camping area on southeast pass where you can hunt all that area out of southeast pass that has a lot of deep ponds.Forget about Swanson's off of Pass aloutre it has become a chore to get over the bar.If I was planning on hunting there I would go in a bigger boat say 18-21 bay boat and tow a go devil boat.Plenty of Canes to blind up in.

Thanks for the feedback OZONE. Yeah we went to Venice last year around Thansgiving. Camped off of Dennis pass. Found some decent ducks but they were scarce. Of course Venice got hit hard last year also with a hurricane. I have a 24' boat that we go down there with, so we are ok with that. However, I did take 4 big waves from an offshore supply boat in the boat last year while traveling the river. Pretty nerve racking. Venice is a great place to hunt though.
