Louisiana Saltwater Series 2013 Schedule Announced
The Louisiana Saltwater Series Redfish Series will commence its 2013 season at The Dock/Dockside Bait and Tackle in Slidell and will visit seven different marinas across theLouisianacoast to create a true test of the best and the most exciting season yet. The coming year marks the fourth anniversary of the LASSredfishtrail. The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, tournament host, will be commemorating the milestone with new prizes and partnerships, including a weigh-in hosted by Marsh and Bayou Magazine at the Northshore Boat-N-Fishing Show.
Every angler who participates is not only signing up for a day of competition and entertainment, but they're making their mark in fisheries research, explained LDWF Assistant Secretary Randy Pausina.
Our tournament is one of the only in existence that offers this unique opportunity to give back to the resource.
