Mooring Buoys placed on Calcasieu Lake artificial reef
Artificial reef built in 2012 to honor the late Brad Vincent.
Calcasieu Lake anglers can now easily find the Brad Vincent Artificial Reef, after CCA Louisiana installed mooring buoys last week.
The buoys include mooring cleats for boats to use, and are held in place by 400-pound concrete anchors.
Coordinates for the center of the Big Lake reef are 29° 56’ 30.844” N/93° 17’ 24.894”W.
The eight-acre artificial reef was built to honor the late Brad Vincent, a Lake Charles conservationist Brad Vincent. Recycled concrete road rubble from a Lake Charles area highway project was used.
Partners in this unique effort included CCA's Building Conservation Program, Shell Oil Company, The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, Road Rock Recycling, Century Group, The Paul Candies Family and NOAA.
