Advice Needed: Buying Camp on Tickfaw
We're a family with 3 kids under the age of 10 and seriously looking at camps on an inlet to the Tickfaw River.

How's the fishing? Hunting on Joyce WMA? Also, where is the closest place for my crab traps? Any advice is much appreciated.

The fishing is good on east side of maurepas and in the pass. I’d say heading west down the pass to the big lake you could put a few crab traps.
Hunting is good, but tough as hell. Need to get with a local for deer hunting to learn the landscape.
Plenty of great boat riding on Maurepas and diversion canal. Get a charge acct at Sunbuns lol

Sorry I could not resist.

I grew up spending time in the summers on the Tickfaw down by Tin Lizzys. I have no advice to the main questions your asking but, I will tell you that those times on the water out there with my dad and other family are some great memories still to this day 30 years later.

Haven't done much hunting down there. My old man had a camp way up river. Always did good bass and perch fishing. Trotlines for catfish was always good. My old man used to put crab traps at the mouth of the tickfaw in Lake Maurepas and we caught plenty of crabs.

Some record Choupique in there too. Good luck with flooding. My pawpaw had a trailer on the canals over by Vacajun marina that was up 5' off the ground and was like half full last flood.

Sounds like someone with experience. I had a camp for about 15 years directly on the river. Sold it 5-6 years ago and still get PTSD when I hear the Killian gauge is over 4.5’. Great times until all your stuff is floating around inside your place.

I have a place in Terry Harbor.

Fishing is not great, but pretty much everything else is.

Usually lots of boats on the river and swimming in the lake is fun. I enjoy riding to Middendorfs for some catfish.

Bottom level floods pretty regularly, so be prepared for that.

The police are ridiculous. They will give you a ticket for going 27 in a 25.
