Just a heads up that Wildlife and fisheries in Louisiana cannot actually enforce trespassing laws. It’s absolutely stupid but that is Louisiana for you. I talked to two different agents who confirmed. You have to contact the local sheriffs office/police dept. and that’s a crap shoot. Though, I have personally seen two guys who were trespassing actually get brought to jail because they caught and attitude about it.
What the Wildlife agents did say was if they are on patrol and someone reports trespassers (depending on if the agents are d-bags or not) they will go tell the guys they have to leave or they will be reported.
What worked for me was taking a picture of the boat and the people. Letting them know you were turning it in to the Sheriff’s office. Calling and emailing whoever will listen at the sheriffs office and let them hopefully do their thing.
Friends who hunt other states tell me their agencies are aggressive on trespassing. Our state for the most part, could care less. That’s why Venice spiraled out of control years ago. Pure circus down there now.
