View Full Version : La Nature Conservancy's "Fish the Reef Rodeo", 4/2/11-Grand Isle

02-21-2011, 11:35 AM
The Louisiana Nature Conservancy has been working on an oyster reef on the back side of Grand Isle, and is interested in gathering some data. Thus they are hosting a Catch and Release Kayak fishing event on Saturday, April 2, from 6am to 11:30am, then lunch and an award ceremony at noon. Prizes for most fish & most fish species caught. I presume you will need to provide some data too. The event is free, but limited to the first 30 registrants.

There is a pre-tourney meet & greet at LDWF HQ Friday, April 1 at 6pm.

To pre-register e-mail Jean Landry at jlandry@tnc.org

I can't seem to upload the flyer, but will send to you if you email me at gengelsman@bolenlaw.com

I wish. Unfortunately my oldest daughter Alex is having her engagement party that evening in Baton Rouge. Wife nixed my participation in any fishing events that morning. Like I couldn't fish AND make it back fora party?!?! These women have no concept of multi-tasking.

The "reef" actually looks more like a breakwater, but fishing the backside of the island is pretty good regardless. There are some breakwaters to the east of this behind the LDWF building that I always catch fish on.
