Had the pleasure of fishing with The Dude, Captain Warren Dudenhefer of Dudenhefer's Fishing Charters Inc. out of Hopedale this past Friday. Norman Flynn and I went down late Thursday night and stayed at Capt. Dude's Camp. I, of course, had to watch the Saints game before I left. Saints lost.again, but hey, it's only pre-season. Should have passed on the Saints game and left earlier to go down to the camp as The Dude has a really nice camp (the A/C is ice cold!). Its located right on Bayou la Loutre, has a lighted pier for night fishing, sleeps up to 6 and has a fully equipped kitchen, and new washer and dryer. Norman found the coffee and set up the pot for the next morning.
