Default South Pass - Venice, LA ?

Have read where the SOUTH Pass is now impassable for larger watercraft. Wondering if anyone has been down that way or knows any local knowledge about whether a smaller bay boat can get thru? Will be in a 20’ Pathfinder which shouldn’t have a problem but also in a 24’ Ranger Bay

Thanks. Shot RBuck a message. Both of the boats in our crew draft less than 2’. Hoping to get outside the South Pass to hit a few fishing spots without having to run the SWest Pass and then over to the South Pass.

What days are you looking at? This weekend or in general? If sat/sun check the weather 4’ + and 15 kt wind. No way I would run SW Pass to S. Pass in a 20’ ft Bay Boat if this forecast holds. Still risky and uncomfortable at best running out Joseph’s Bayou across East Bay. Maybe I’m over cautious or misinterpreting the forecast. Good luck be safe.

Have buddies going to be down there next week. I will be down there in Nov with them. Basically inquiring about general conditions (“in general”).
