dautrieve to fausse point

I live in New Iberia and I was thinking instead of driving all the way around to the fausse point state park to launch I could launch at the dautrieve public launch and ride across the lake to fish around the state park. Would I run into any kind of problems doing this? I am not all that familiar with the area. From what I understand dautrieve is pretty shallow. I have an 18ft skeeter btw. Here is how I want to go.

You should be fine on the route you plotted. You will just have to go around the duck blinds, platforms and the high power line piling.

is there something in the lake to hit or is it just shallow? I've heard from people before that you have to know where to go in deautreve. To me it just looks like a wide open muddy lake.

you will not have any problems going across lake dautreive as long as you don't take a left when you leave the landing, if you leave and go the direction you plotted out, you will have no problems.

It is a big, wide open lake. There is some skinny water around the park, but you should be fine as long as you don't venture too far out of the barrow canal, or any of the other the dug canals.
