Can someone provide a list of places I can safely launch a 15 foot Jon with 25hp motor out of? New boat to me. Coming from Nola.

Golden Meadow
Lots of canals around catfish lake. Good protection on windy days. I had a 15.5' with a 27PD and had no problems fishing the catfish lake area.

Use it to your advantage. I bought my first boat like that and the beauty if you are young and stupid you can go anywhere there is water. We use to launch it right off the hwy. PS Don't try to go where you know there is boat traffic and open water.

Hopedale, Delacroix, Reggio, Pointe a la Hache, Point au Chien, Laffite. Really 90% of places to launch a boat in coastal LA lead to protected water with decent to excellent inshore fishing.
