Thanks everyone. It is an amazing place with a rich ecosystem. I personally wasn't fond of the blue crabs because it was a ton of work (for the reward IMO), but several of my cajun friends can rip through them fast with just a butter knife. My favorite was crawfish by far, but the fresh oysters and jumbo shrimp were hard to beat too.
In addition to everything else, Mardi Gras and the Spring/Fall festival season made this a great place for my family.
But still, some of my best memories were made in Colorado on the front range chasing ducks along the South Platte, camping/fishing/hunting on the Mesa, trout fishing in the San Luis Valley, dirt biking in Rampart Range and the western slope Book Cliffs, and bowhunting in the White River and Routt National Forests (among many other amazing fishing experiences). Yes, I miss Colorado!
