Local Anglers Catch Mess of Catfish at “Get Out and Fish” Site

Lavon Sullivan Holds up a Stringer of Catfish

On Saturday, April 30, Saline anglers Muriel and Lavon Sullivan spent the morning fishing at Parc Natchitoches, one of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries’s “Get Out and Fish” sites.  They fished for about an hour without getting a bite.  Another fisherman a short distance away was getting bites sporadically.  When the other fisherman left, the Sullivans luck changed and they caught seven nice-sized catfish.  The Sullivans used earthworms as bait.

Currently, the LDWF does not have a “Get Out and Fish” site in Bienville Parish.  

The Get Out and Fish! Program seeks to increase the number of people with access to quality fishing. The program intends to recruit new anglers to the sport of fishing and promote outdoor activities for future generations.

The LDWF Get Out and Fish is hosted in conjunction with the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation (LAWFF). The Foundation was formed to help expand and support LDWF education and research programs with additional resources developed through its own facilities. Encouraging support for LDWF programs is the major focus of the Foundation, accomplished by connecting people and businesses with Louisiana’s natural resources.
