Inshore Fishing in Pointe a la Hache in Southeast Louisiana


The WDF has a shrimp closure for 7/11. As much as I have read their site, I'm still lost. Can anyone tell me if I can legally pull my trawl to catch some bait at Pointe a la Hache and Breton Sound? Thanks!!!

I don't believe you can pull a trawl for any thing once the season is closed. It is probably best to call LDWF and confirm it with them, then there is no doubt if you are legal.

That area is closed right now. It closed about 2 weeks ago. If you get caught, you will be fined. People with bait licences can shrimp under certain conditions.

no you can not

A trawl can not be pulled during the closed season. not even for bait. if you go to lwf web site go to the news colum it says on sat. it will close. unless you are on outside waters don't try it
