Question Pensacola to Texas

They finally got my boat ready to go in Pensacola. I'm taking it back to Texas thru the ICW. Anybody know of any marina's that have reopened in the Mississippi Sound and Louisiana area.

Last I heard, this fall, there were 3-4 marinas open in the New Orleans area. After New Orleans, going west, you're good till Mile 160. Once past there, there are no marinas until Lake Charles, 10 miles off the ICW, from Mile 240. Inbetween, the Mermetau River is a good anchorage just north of the Ditch, or if the wind is blowing from the West to North, a bit further in there is an oxbow you can duck behind.

If you go to Bridge Point at Lake Charles, be sure to have cash, as they don't take credit cards. Gas dock is right next to it (Nalmar Landing). From there, the next marina would be in Beaumont, again about a 10 mile jaunt off the ditch. Shell Island, at the entrance to Sabine Lake is another good anchorage. The High Island Bridge is noted in the guide books as a usable anchorage, but I went aground with 4 1/2' draft when I tried to use it.

Good luck on your trip.
