Release Date: 01/09/2014

(Jan. 9, 2014) – During their monthly meeting, the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission approved a Notice of Intent to remove the current net ban on Spanish Lake in St. Martin and Iberia parishes.   This action removes the current net ban and allows commercial fishermen the opportunity to use nets to target abundant stocks of buffalo, catfish and carp.
