I’ll admit I am biased about my Louisiana fishing! I have lived most of my life in southern Louisiana and do so, in large part, for 2 main reasons. The first is my family. My entire family lives here and it seems no one ever leaves. But the 2nd big reason is access to the outdoors – namely the water (since I’m not a hunter). Last year, I was among the many locals who gave up on our prospects of enjoying the fishing we’ve come to love after watching the oil spill unfold on TV.
