The ArkLaTex celebrates a weekend of free fishing

Residents in Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas enjoy a weekend of free fishing.
This week is the official National Fishing and Boating Week.

It's summer, and that means many people will be doing a little of both.

To help celebrate, the State of Louisiana is offing its annual Free Fishing Days this weekend, June 7 and 8. During these two days, no one will be required to obtain the normally State-mandated fishing license.

Here's a great way for everyone to celebrate the occasion - take a kid fishing!

On Saturday man locals filled the backs of local rivers, ponds, lakes, and anything else that hold water.





It can be described in three words


Free fish weekend

That's right the first week of June is national boating and fishing week - and to help celebrate the state of Louisiana is offering it's annual free fishing weekend


You can't get no better than that


for two days, no one will be required to obtain the normally State-mandated fishing license.


got to love it!


The Shreveport Police sure do, and Each year the department host an annual fishing camp - SGT. Greg Washington says it's a day to teach kids all about the fun of fishing


One of the things we teach is how to cast - we teach them how to cast the reel- then we teach them about boating and boating safety


He's looking to keep kids out of trouble - he's also looking to get them outdoors


It's real important to get outside and understand how things work outside rather than inside


Brieco Savannah agrees - he says his sons are enjoying the day of fishing - something they normally don't do


They like playing video games, but this is a day that they really enjoy. They passed the video games up today to come out to enjoy the outdoors with other kids


It's good to get kids outside also to get them to understand the reason for fishing


It's not only keeping kids off the couch and off the streets, but it's also teaching them lessons - lessons that will stay with them for a lifetime


Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. But you teach a man to fish, he'll live for a lifetime


something that these kids are buying into --- hook line and sinker!
