I stayed out there many nights prior to Katrina. I never bothered to register with anyone. Doesn't make it right... Just did it. There's a deep hole (30ft) on the NW end which is good for white trout, ground mullet and other easy catch types. I have caught many Cobia off the West tip on the sand bar (4-7ft). You can't sight fish as the water is too cloudy, so most people just chum, and use live bait. The Red fishing gets good towards the East end. I caught a 44" Red there a few years ago. Plenty of Specs, so take liv shrimp. Don't trust any charts of the area, including GPS chartplotters as nothing was updated after Katrina.
