Fly Fishing the Louisiana Coast: A Complete Guide to Tactics & Techniques, From Lake Charles...
by Pete Cooper Jr.
Paperback from Countryman Press
ISBN: 0881506656

A complete guide to fly fishing and visiting the hundreds of miles of bayous, coastlines, and the Mississippi River Delta.
Great fishing in great settings with great people and great food, too! Where else can you catch tarpon, eat authentic jambalaya, and dance to zydeco, all in one day? This is the first, and definitive, guide to saltwater fly fishing in Louisiana-inshore, coastal, and offshore. This where-to, 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

 
Louisiana Rambles: Exploring America s Cajun and Creole Heartland
Louisiana Rambles: Exploring America's Cajun and Creole Heartland
by Ian McNulty
Paperback from University Press of Mississippi
ISBN: 1604739460

After Hurricane Katrina laid bare the fragility and environmental peril of south Louisiana, author Ian McNulty set out on a series of daytrips to delve into the area's diverse cultural landscapes. He explored communities staked up and down the Mississippi River, nestled into the teeming bayous, braced along the edge of the Gulf, and planted out on the golden prairie stretching to the west. Louisiana Rambles is his richly evocative guide to those journeys.

McNulty delivers an inimitable take on Cajun and Creole Louisiana-the siren call of zydeco dancehalls pulsing in the country darkness; of crawfish "boiling points" and traditional country smokehouses; of Cajun jam sessions, where even wallflowers are compelled to dance; of equine gambits in the cradle of jockeys; and of fishing trips where anyone can land impressive catches. In south Louisiana, distilled European heritage, the African American experience, and modern southern exuberance mix with tumultuous history and fantastically fecund natural environments. The territories McNulty opens to the reader are arguably the nation's most exotic and culturally distinct destinations.

McNulty quests for the heart of these places and people. Much more than a travel guide or collection of travel narratives, Louisiana Rambles is a seasoned writer's witness to an epic locale that is very often joyous, sometimes heartbreaking, and always vital and stimulating. An extensive, chapter-by-chapter appendix filled with travel tips and notes from the road (or the bayou) will let visitors explore well beyond the beaten tourist paths and help Louisiana residents appreciate their own terrain in a new light.

 
Specks : Louisiana s Top 10 Trout Destinations, and Exactly How to Fish Them Year-Round
Specks : Louisiana's Top 10 Trout Destinations, and Exactly How to Fish Them Year-Round
by Todd Masson
Paperback from Louisiana Publishing
ISBN: 0970981309

It is said that 10 percent of the fishermen catch 90 percent of the fish. There's no species in Louisiana about which that statement is more true than speckled trout. At times, specks are everywhere and anyone with a rod and reel can catch them. But during most of the year, only the most knowledgeable anglers consistently boat their limits.

For this book, Todd Masson interviewed biologists, anglers and experts, who have willingly shared their knowledge with readers. Complete with maps and more than 100 photos, the book contains new insights and never-before-published information about Louisiana's favorite saltwater species.

It's not the lucky anglers who catch the most fish; it's the ones who know the most and best understand the species. This book will, without a doubt, make you a better speckled trout fisherman.

 
Trout Masters: How Louisiana s Best Anglers Catch the Lunkers
Trout Masters: How Louisiana's Best Anglers Catch the Lunkers
by Jerald Horst
Kindle Edition from Louisiana Publishing
Media Published: 2011-
 

When Leon Mattes reeled in a lunker of a speckled trout in May 1950, he could never have guessed that the fish would stand as Louisiana's state record for more than half a century. But today, with that 12.38-pound speck having reached epic status, 14 anglers have set themselves on a course to conquer Louisiana's fishing Everest. Each has the same goal, but the chosen and chiseled means are as varied as the determined men and women who have selected them. These are Louisiana's best anglers, and odds are, one of them will eventually push Mr. Mattes to No. 2.

Game Warden: On Patrol in Louisiana
Game Warden: On Patrol in Louisiana
by Jerald Horst
Hardcover from Louisiana State Univ Pr
ISBN: 0807137049

Of all law enforcement officers, game wardens inspire the most awe in the mind of the public. Working day and night, often in challenging terrain and bad weather, game wardens typically operate alone in remote areas and must understand the natural rhythms and cycles of the creatures and ecosystems they protect, all while encountering and sometimes interacting with people who are usually armed. Outdoors writer Jerald Horst spent one year riding on patrol with game wardens in the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. In riveting episodes, he chronicles their adventures, providing an up-close view of this demanding job and the band of men who take it on.

From the piney woods of the northwestern part of the state to the soggy Mississippi River delta and beyond to the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Horst accompanied dozens of wildlife agents, observing them, asking questions, sometimes sitting for hours with no action, and occasionally fearing for his life, as in the case of one speedboat chase. His candid observations show that the work of agents is often mentally and physically challenging, sometimes tedious, and--more often than would be expected--humorous, but never dull.

Whether wardens are conducting routine checks of law-abiding sportsmen or in pursuit of suspected poachers, the unanticipated is the norm. A seemingly ordinary stop can turn deadly in an instant. As one officer told Horst "complacency can get you killed." More than a job, serving as a game warden is a way of life, and Horst relates how the agents he met came to their calling.

An objective look at a heroic career, Game Warden offers an enthralling portrait of both the profession and the men behind the badge.
