Correct coordinates needed:

Dear Capt. Paul:

I have a new camp in Cocodrie, and Iím learning the area. I was hoping to hit some of the shallower rigs for a few lemonfish and perhaps even some snapper.
Do you have the coordinates for the Mardi Gras and EnStar rigs that are supposed to be near the shoreline?
What resources do you have available for us in the way of charts, waypoints, etc?

Thanks a million.Read More...
