I got some information about Lake Fausse Pointe to share. Fausse Point is on the west side of the Atchafalaya Basin near St Martinville and New Iberia.
Last couple of miles are gravel road but 95% of the trip for everyone would be on interstate highways. Cabins are built on the water with docks. Park has over 4,000 acres of water.

What was the other site mentioned? I would like to gather some info on it.

I check on Fausse Pointe yesterday. The Lake is seperate from the basin but the basin is not far away. So if the lake was not the place we wanted to fish, the launch into the basin is not far. The only thing is the cabins book very fast. I checked yesterday for the months of February and March and there are only a few cabins available on a couple of weekends. There are 18 cabins according to the website but the lady at the reservation center said there are 16. So basically we need to make a decision on this soon. The other two places we had in mind was the Calcasieu River and Toledo Bend.

I don't how I just knew Mike Noble would love the idea of Toledo Bend. :roll2: Sorry Mike, we are just looking at the places that have cabins close by and enough of them that it's not going to be a worry. By Wednesday night we will have pick one of these three places.

Dave, the Calcasieu River goes all the way down to the Gulf but it does not touch the Basin. We put the off limits on the Calcasieu at the Salt Water Barrier. But believe me even with south of the barrier being off limits there is no way you could run out of area to fish. There is tournament coming up in August, which Mike Cork is surpose to come down and fish with me, that has over 600 anglers that fish it, and even with those numbers there is plenty of water to fish.

Rattle, I was looking at the map and noticed all the area that the river and river basin area covered. I agree, its very large, and has so many chutes, and bayou's, that there should be enough area for a large number of anglers. You know last year we only had 3 or 4 teams fish the area and from the reports the cabins were nice. Based on this, I don't see why you guys shouldn't schedule the '06 Shootout for the calcasieu again. It is your decision ultimately, but if it is convient, easily accessible, plenty of water, and has the room for the amount of people wanting to attend, why not.........My two cents....Dave

Dave, it's obviously one of the top choices for us but the only thing that concerns me is the flooding at that time of the year. If we have some heavy rainfalls around the time of the tournament, it's going to be tough and I mean tough.
