Ezell’s Fish Camp, Lavaca AL

Av and I just love to go to Ezell’s Fish Camp in Lavaca (AL). It is a *real* fish camp – right on the water – and the fields around it are growing cotton…..

There are a bunch of deer mounted in the entranceway, and inside the dining room are these three wild boar.

This is the world-record blue catfish. This was done by Archie Phillips, who is the taxidermist whose sign “Get the US out of the UN” (there’s a new one up now, but I don’t remember what it is) can be seen from I-20/59 in Birmingham.

First they bring out Lance Captain’s Wafers (the best), a lemon, cocktail and tartar sauce, and their coleslaw – which is so delicious!

Av loves their fried pickles, even though we can’t even eat half of what they bring out. They are so yummy though!

Here’s my dinner – catfish fillets. Yummy!

Ezell’s is open seven days a week, and it’s so much fun just to go and sit by the water. One time after a storm, there was a lot of tree branches in the water, and we got to watch what I think was an egret just floating all the way down the river on one of the logs. Nice!
