o, how-to guide's coverage begins on the western edge of Cajun Country, in the Lake Charles region, and extends east to the Mississippi River Delta. Louisiana harbors an amazing range of fish: redfish, specks, flounder, tripletail, cobia, tarpon, crevalle jacks, and Spanish mackerel, even largemouth bass, and the author cues you in to what gear to bring, from rod to fly, and provides essential information on local guides; marinas; sporting goods; outfitters; suggestions for sightseeing on your fishing down time; accommodations, from motels to plantation beds; and venues for authentic regional "good eating" and music.Many of Louisiana's year-round saltwater opportunities, both offshore and inshore, were developed in the past 10 years. In that time, there's been a growth of fly fishing in the state, and catch-and-release has replaced the ice-chest as a measure of fishing success. Whether you're sight-casting, blind-casting, surfcasting, or casting from your "mud-boat," here's your chance to hook into your biggest fish ever.Conventioneers and revelers alike in the Big Easy―pack your rod for your next trip, and get out and fish! 40 black-and-white photos, 8 maps
