Five Reasons why launching at Campo’s will save your fishing trip


Located at the end of Bayou Yscloskey in Shell Beach, Campo's Marina offers these five things to enhance your fishing trip.

1. Location

12 miles puts you well inside Bayou Grande.

Campo's Marina is strategically located to put boats on the best action in Lake Borgne, the MRGO, ICW and especially the famed Biloxi Marsh.

This marsh holds a vast array of holes and ponds for speckled trout and redfish.

Not everybody has 90 gallons of gas to burn. Launch strategically to save fuel, time and money.

2. Avoid the Crowd

Plenty of space for you to park.

Because fewer crowds frequent Campo's Marina, you will be able to quickly launch and recover your boat.

The parking lot for your truck is nearby and you'll have no problem escaping to your adventure as you avoid the crowd.

Added perk: when nature calls at o'dark thirty you'll have a bathroom to use!

3. Dockside Service

Campo's Marina is the only marina this side of St. Bernard that will pump gas, deliver oil, ice and bait to your boat at the side of the dock.

Pull up in your boat and get top notch customer service! Furthermore, the Campo family guarantees their shrimp with the guarantee to catch fish or die trying!

Seriously, all joking aside they give great counts and don't waste time getting your shrimp to you.

When I used to pick up my charters at the marina, it was less than five minutes until my customers were underway on their fishing adventure. Loading customers and their gear into the boat was the longest part.

"Thank goodness the Campo's are too busy running their marina. If they got into Nascar we'd all be out of a job!"

4. Good Gouge

Raised right there on the bayou, the Campo family is heavily immersed in inshore fishing.

They work oyster leases, trawl shrimp and do the same fishing for speckled trout and redfish that you do.

Also, the majority of charter captains in St. Bernard utilize Campo's Marina for support.

What does this mean? The Campo's have the latest intel on where the fish are biting up. The family is big and they are happy to help you out. Just ask where the trout and reds are and they can point you in the right direction!

5. Unparalleled Customer Service

Convenience and Customer Service are the cornerstones of Campo's Marina

Last but not least, this is the hallmark quality of any Campo. I am impressed by their work ethic and outstanding character, as they're great American people with American values.

Their goal is to support your fishing trip and get you out on the water, not treat you like another number.
