This week we're thinking of our friends on the Gulf Coast and hoping that Hurricane Isaac spares them. Pictured above is Joey Fonseca, the proprietor of Des Allemands Outlaw Katfish Co., which is located in the small community of Des Allemands, Louisiana, between New Orleans and Houma. SFA oral history correspondent Sara Roahen interviewed Fonseca in November of 2011 as part of the "Down the Bayou" oral history project, a snapshot of life in rural southeastern Louisiana.
