Get out those fishing poles! This weekend is the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries' Free Fishing Weekend. Residents of all ages can fish on any of the state's public waters without a fishing license this Saturday and Sunday. All other fishing regulations and limits still apply. Louisiana offers miles of shoreline and a myriad of freshwater lakes, marsh, and bayous to take advantage of this weekend. The Department hopes the weekend will introduce newcomers, visitors, and even people with rusty skills to one of the state's most popular sports.
