Crabbing in Grand Isle/Fourchon?

Reply
Anybody been doing any crabbing in Fourchon or Grand Isle recently? I'd like to take my boys. I live in BR and have gone to Bayou Lacombe before but only caught very little ones from the bank. I don't have a boat, so looking for somewhere easy. Side of the road, beach, bridge, etc. Any tips or help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Yeah went down 2weeks ago. Trot line (w/ chx necks) in the surf on a falling tide yielded about 4 dozen in the afternoon. All were nice and full.

Good huntin...

Has anyone been and/or know if the crabs are running along Elmer's Island? Access is limited and ONLY BY WALKING! Is it worth while to run trot lines on Grand Isle itself from LA 1 onto any of the small beach-side parking areas??? Thanks, John Castelluccio, Jr.
