WRKG Reports The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission has opened the last 862 square miles of state waters to recreational fishing, including charter boat trips.

The commission notes that these areas remain closed to shrimp trawling, oystering and crabbing.

The commission is also urging federal agencies to speed up required testing to re-open commercial fishing areas closed because of oil from the Gulf of Mexico spill.

The areas reopened to sport fishing are around Bay Baptiste, barrier islands, and the islands at the tip of St. Bernard Parish. The department has online maps showing the areas.

Above all, fishing can be a lot of fun, but it is vital that you are as informed as possible. Moreover, this is particularly important if you plan to eat your catches as not all fish are suitable for human consumption.
