Carl's Cajun Catfish Cookout
*updated - now with frogs*

Requires World Adventures and Ambitions
Built with version 4.0.87
Uses Sims Store CC and 4 other free CC items

Carl's Cajun Catfish Cookout is located deep in the swampy wastelands of Twinbrook. It features a fresh fish stand, a rough and tumble open air eatery with bar, a small commercial kitchen, a cosy lounge, open-air facilities (toilet/bath), a combined double bed bedroom and office, plenty of swampy atmosphere and some rather suspect fishing spots. There is also a guitar near the tables and chairs for some live music.

We won't be able to really utilise this eatery until Late Night EP comes along but in the meantime, if you've ever wanted a Cajun eatery/hangout in the middle of the swamp, this is the lot for you! This lot is not really suitable for family oriented Sims, more for those interested in cooking and fishing or for those needing a swampy looking lot for a Sims story/movie.

Inspired in part by the Cajun style eatery frequented by Jack Stanton in the movie Primary Colors and by the swampy goodness of the classic Jim Jarmusch film, Down By Law.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

The link above only links to the fish, rod, and basket. Does anyone have the fish stall? I can't find it anywhere. It's not on Sims Trastos' new site and any links I found in other threads here or on LivingSims are dead as well.

This lot looks really nice and I would download it if I could find the fish décor from Trastos. I have searched and searched but have had no luck. I have followed leads all over the place and can find some Trastos décor but no fish things. Thanks though for your beaut work

The fish stall and the rest of simstrastos stuff can be found at the simscave in one folder. The file for the fish stall is pcangej.
