We got that covered....
Captain Shawn's Lodge was built 19 feet up after Hurricane Katrina and has everything you need to eat, sleep and relax in comfort (yes, we have a flat screen TV and a coffee maker). The setting is great for entertaining corporate groups, family or your old buddies. This is his home too.
The Fish On Lodge has a total of 16 beds in three different rooms. All the beds are big and comfortable bunk beds (sorry no kings or double beds).There is plenty of room inside for a large group of people to relax in the air conditioning. Outside, there are two large covered porches for barbecues or just hanging out. Also, there are four separate bathrooms. The lodge is elevated 19" above the ground, so in case someone has problems getting up stairs there are some quarters at floor level that they can use. Capt. Shawn lives at the lodge in a separate room, so you might have to put up with him while you are there. While at the lodge make yourself at home and let the Captain know if you need anything, because everybody is a V.I.P at The Fish On Lodge. The "Fish On Lodge" is ready to welcome you. Call Captain Shawn to make your reservations for lodging and fishing at (225) 205-5353. Come experience good times fishing in Venice, Louisiana with Fish On Guide Service!
Whether you are coming in to New Orleans from interstate 10 east or west, be sure to stay onI-10, go direction HWY 90 Business West Bank when you enter the city. Do not take the bypass ( 610 ).
Go to downtown New Orleans while staying on interstate 10. Go directly by the Superdome (will be on your left). Keep going, and go over the Mississippi River bridge. When you cross over the bridge to the west bank you will be on a elevated expressway (hwy. 90). Stay on the left lane direction 90 Business West, first exit will be " Stumpf", take the second exit which is Lafayette street / Hwy# 23.
Take a left at the red light, go under the expressway and go straight on Hwy# 23 South. You will stay on this road all the way to Venice. There are a number of red lights while in town, along with traffic. You will come to the only tunnel in Louisiana as you enter Plaquemines Parish. Keep going straight down Hwy.# 23 south.
The last red light you come to is the Belle Chasse Military base on the right ( Blue Angels jet plane on display) and a Texaco gas station. At this point Hwy # 23 allows you to travel at 55 mph then 65 mph. Remember, 60 miles from that last red light the Boothville water tower will be on the right hand side of the road. Take a left at the second cut in the highway past the water tower.There is a sign that says : "polling place", this will be GILLE LANE.Turn left, go a few hundred yards to the levee. Take a left here on the Boothville River Road. The sixth driveway on the left is my driveway (after DENNIS LANE). There is a travel trailer on the left side of the drive and a mobile home on the right. Pull through the middle and my place is the only elevated building in the back. As you reach my place there is a big yard on the right to park.You can easily see my place from Hwy# 23 (behind a big green metal building) across from the water tower, but my driveway is accessible only from the river road. Also, it is a good idea to call me from the military base up in Belle Chasse, because that lets me know you are an hour away. Also, the speed limit in Port Sulphur gets down to 35 mph. You best not go over 40 mph. or you might get pulled over by the Law.If you have any problem you are welcome to call me anytime.
