Beson's launch in Cut Off, LA? New upcoming launch fees?

I tend to take rumors with a grain of salt... this one rubs me the wrong way.

I just received a call that the private launch known as 'Beson's' will be charging a yearly fee instead of the $5 per launch, much like they do at Cloverly Farms boat launch.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.

Anyone else hear about that? Any meat to this? I sure hope not. There's a free public launch, but it's a 20 minute drive to fish Bully Camp. Since this launch uses the parish levee to cross, is there any way to petition the parish to step in this situation? This is very different than what happened at Cloverly.

Haven't heard that, but I sure wish they would use the fees to fill in some of the holes in the launch area. You could really damage your boat or trailer in that area.

hes gonna lose alot of money and business. if you go launch there every weekend youre still only spending like $250 to launch. it sucks there to begin with, with the potholes all over and only one slip. last two times i went, someone backed their trailer into my brand new truck and we had to deal with drunk trawlers. not worth it, ill go to golden meadow or deal with the angry old man on the bourg larose highway.

It's very disappointing. I suppose I'll just travel to Golden Meadow. The most I would pay would be $100 a year and that isn't going to happen. It's a shame.

Down the bayou along with the whole world has turned to greed. It's our kids that will suffer for stupidity like this. If you don't have a fat wallet sooner are later the sportsman paradise will no longer be. The parish will not step in to do nothing about this just like the closely launch. 2 years ago I use to be able to fish closely area and the sulfur mine for a 5 dollar launch fee now that would cost 800 bucks a year! That is pathetic.

Don't pick on this guy there are many
I use to fish this area for years and Bason was a great guy. He fixed my trailer while I went fishing. Talk about greed what about 100 dollars a hour to work on your boat or motor. My son lived on TB and we saw almost every marina go under. Fin and Feather was number one and this place has gone under many times. Again people don't see the problem. With government regulations I am sure he now needs a special parking for handicap. I wanted to open a truck terminal in Houston and they wanted me to put in a ramp for the handicap which would have cost more than the terminal. This in an area where only truck drivers would come. Just think about if someone falls or something happens he would loose his business over the law suits so guess he now has to pay a ton for insurance. Just think what it cost for a movie or to play golf and you may feel this is a good deal. PS did you hear LSU wants to raise ticket prices how much does a ticket cost now.

Kind of stinks that the levee board allowed a road to go over the top of the protection levee to access this spot.

Beson's Launch
I have a camp behind Beson's and it is not set in stone what they will do with the gate thing and how much it will cost. The new owner will black top the launch and get all that trash out of there. Talk was 100.00 a year but never heard 400.00 a year. No decision was made yet. If it was, it is kept on the down low. It will be a lot nicer. He would make a lot more money charging $5.00 a boat, but he don't need the money, so it looks like it will go to the gate thing. $100.00 would be fair I think
