Des Allemands, Louisiana: Big Catfish and Pole

A well-crafted big fish is frozen in mid-thrash in an obscured spot behind a seafood restaurant. A nearby bench encourages contemplation of the fish, but a sign warns of alligators.

Giant Catfish

Not only is there great food at Spahr's, but there is a great photo op next to the parking lot: a large catfish next to a bamboo fishing pole, with a bobber made from a propane tank.
