21 August 2010. Grand Isle, south Louisiana.
Fishing grounds reopen yet the normally packed marina at Grand Isle remains deserted, ironically with the only catch of the day being a gas pump. BP has leased all the slips, the local motel and every available parking space making this the jump off point for crews assisting in the oil clean up operation. Recreational fishermen must travel 7 miles north to buy bait.
