Default Fuel Availability- South LA

I was planning (well, daydreaming about anyway) a multi-day rig trip that would involve fishing our way around from Dorsey Canyon to some of the floaters off of South Pass, LA. Coming in from South Pass, is Venice the first opportunity for diesel or are there other locations further downstream that would be available to the public (Pilot Town, Port Eads)? What about out of Southwest Pass?

Believe port eads is now closed and the pass is pretty shallow when we came threw it on Easter only about 4-5ft.

I think you are correct.

It was about 2' when i was there a few weeks ago.

I believe they are dredging it out next month.

Is navigation information for the pass provided by the USCG or by the USACE?

I called myself looking but I didn't see anything in the latest USCG LNM or on the current NOAA ENC about South Pass.

I did see a notice on the Port Eads website that they were closed due to the South Pass channel conditions.

So, it sounds like the first available fuel would be Venice via Southwest Pass then if approaching from the south.

Any idea if Port Eads will reopen once the channel has been dredged?
