There are other restaurants where “fish camp” is part of the motif. At Ezell’s Fish Camp in Lavaca, it’s part of its history.

Charles Agnew Ezell sold fish to people crossing the Tombigbee River during the Great Depression. That grew into a fish market on the river and into a hunting club where people would come for fried catfish and hush puppies starting in 1937. The Ezell’s Fish Camp restaurant opened in 1954.

Agnew Hall is the latest generation of the Ezell family to own and operate Ezell’s Fish Camp. He said that rich history was threatened when COVID-19 shut down the restaurant.
