Louisiana's "Free Fishing Weekend" starts Saturday (June 7th).
Normally, residents must have a Basic Fishing and/or Saltwater License.
However, the two-day event lets any Louisiana resident fish without one.
You can try and catch the big one on all public bodies of water.
However all fishing regulations and limits still apply.
