Roland Martin is given credit for having coined the phrase “pattern fishing” during the 1970s.

The lure plopped lightly into the water next to some flooded brush, slowly falling toward the bottom.
The 5-inch piece of soft plastic didn’t fall vertically. Instead, it remained horizontal, fading from sight at an agonizingly slow rate.

Louisiana waters are some of the most diverse in all of North America. The entire southeastern U.S. ecosystem has been heralded for its diversity of life, even to the point of being called an “evolutionary laboratory.” Thousands of fish, insects, amphibians, vegetation and mammalian species rely on it and call it home.
