Here in the Bayou State, the heat of summer can make outdoor activities a bit toasty, but the fish we pursue don't seem to notice.

There are a gazillion options for anglers who fish early or late, or who simply tough it out midday, and Louisiana Sportsman's July issue gives the details on some of the best.

That magazine was sent to the printer today (June 16), and will be in subscribers' mailboxes beginning Tuesday, June 21.

Here's a sneak peak of what's inside:
