Crawfishing South Farm

Reply
 
Just got an email from the biologist Tony Vidrine that's in charge of the South Farm complex on Sherburne WMA saying that the crawfish season will begin on the 15th of March this year. I also asked him if the recent construction of the water control structures would mess up the crawfishing. His reply was that it will help the crawfishing this year. It's probably still too cold, and probably will be still too cold by the 15th, but soon as it warms a bit it should be on. If you've never been, it's a cool trip to make. My kids love it.

Ramah bridge is still under construction. Found out the hard way about 2 weeks ago, had to drive another 5 miles north to cross over.

Yes unfortunately the bridge is still out. You will have to go up highway 3000 north until you get to a street called 'Lafiton Lane'. There's a little bar at the top of the street. Very curvy road that LA 3000 is too. My camp is on the gravel road south of the interstate. We had to go around the whole season to hunt. Made a 27 minute ride to my camp turn into 57 minutes. At least when your going to South Farm you are going in the right direction. When you get to the levee from Lafiton Lane turn right till you see the South Farm sign. For details on where to crawfish or what see my post from last year.

If they actually worked it wouldn't be long. Unfortunatly there are very many days that absolutly nothing gets done. They don't even show up for work when the weather is perfect on a week day. They were in a big rush to start so they wouldn't lose federal money, but there's no incentive to finish.

Went by there Wednesday. Did not see even the first concrete piling set to replace the wood pilings. Nobody there either unless their lunch break starts at 10:30.

Lemme know if you got any questions. I'm probably gonna wait till just before April to go, because I think it's still too cold yet. It's a great place to crawfish. So much better than bringing the family on the side of the road in a ditch.
