Where can I go to catch crabs on a line? I live in Zachary and would like to find somewhere closer than grand isle. I want to bring my 5 year old little boy to catch a few. I have a boat that I can do it out of but I would rather do it on foot if possible. Thanks for any advice.

HELLO, YOU MIGHT WANT TO TRY THE BONNET CARRE SPILLWAY. THEY HAVE THREE LOCATIONS TO CRAB WITH LINE OR NETS, THERE ARE THE BOAT LANDING AREAS ON AIRLINE HWY IN NORCO OR YOU CAN TRAVEL DOWN THE EAST GUIDE LEVEE TO THE LAKE AND CRAB THERE. ALSO THERE IS A NATURE WALK THAT IS FUN TO TAKE WITH CHILDREN. I BRING MY GRAND KIDS TO THE SPILLWAY AS OFTEN AS I CAN, LOTS OF FUN. HAVE FUN !!

Another spot is the sides of the road on Lake Rd in Lacombe(Hwy 434),plenty of folks routinely crab side of road and with a boat,Bayou Lacombe would be a decent bet and also you could do fish/crab trip by launching on Lake Rd,motoring out to mouth of Bayou Lacombe and try sight-casting reds after setting out crab nets.If all ya got are hand-lines,side of Lake Rd good bet!!
