LDWF Cites Two Men for Over Limit of Bass

Release Date: 10/04/2018

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement agents cited two Louisiana men for alleged fishing violations on Sept. 21 in Terrebonne Parish.

Agents cited Ray Louviere Jr., 65, of Prairieville, and Robert Holland, 80, of Livingston, for possessing over the limit of black bass.

Agents received a complaint about fishermen possessing over the legal limit of bass on Bayou Black.  Agents setup surveillance at a boat launch near Gibson where they found a truck and empty boat trailer.

When a vessel with Louviere Jr. and Holland approached the marina, agents made contact with the men.  Agents found the men in possession of 53 bass, which put them 33 over the legal limit of 10 bass per day per fisherman.

Over the limit of black bass brings a $100 to $350 fine and up to 30 days in jail.  The men may also face civil restitution totaling $443 for the replacement value of the illegally possessed fish.
