If you are fishing and an enforcement agent for the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries asks you that question, you better be ready to say “yes” or be ready to pay up to a maximum fine of $250.
That’s especially important this time of year because a lot of fishermen are carrying around licenses in their pockets that are about to expire. The current licenses expire on June 30. With the license expiring in the middle of the year, it’s often hard to remember that. New 2017-2018 Louisiana fishing licenses are now on sale.
Licenses purchased prior to June 1, 2017 expire June 30, 2017. New 2017-18 year licenses are effective July 1, 2017 and will expire June 30, 2018.
