ABSTRACT
The article presents a brief history of coastal smuggling in the Gulf of Mexico. From brothers Pierre Lafitte and Jean Lafitte, to modern pirates wired with technology, the Gulf of Mexico has long been a salty refuge for pirates, privateers, bootleggers and drug dealers. Their motives remain debatable--those involved with illegal activities were not eager to talk publicly. Modern smuggling in the gulf is likewise a mystery. Few incidents involving bootlegging have been recorded, and drug dealers continue to battle law enforcement by operating on the fringes with a tight grasp on technology.
