This has some great shoreline fishing. There is a bait place right before you get on the dike so that makes in nice. It says you can't camp on the dike, but you can fish all night and day.

Yes, I have camped there a while back. On occasions there are folks that fish all night with generators. It’s best to ask the guys that work the gate entrance.
