So where exactly is the 9 Nautical Mile line which is the boundary of state fisheries jurisdiction?? I have been attempting to get this information from LDWF but it seems that all they will provide is a statewide overview of the line which is not sufficient to determine exactly which rigs are within state jurisdiction. I spoke to Captain Comeaux in the Thibodaux office and was informed that enforcement agents use an app to determine if they are within state waters, but he could not provide me with access to the app. How are we to know which rigs are within state jurisdiction? Does anyone outside of the LDWF know exactly where the line actually is? Does LDWF even know?
Here's a couple of 50 pounders taken from the South Pelto blocks, notice the BP lesion on the closest one.
The Capt. boats another nice one.
Yes you can catch cobia in a bass boat, made it to West Timbalier on Friday and seeing the calm seas kept right on going until I got to the South Timbalier 50s, all caught on a 3 oz white bucktail jig, could have caught twice as many but it's hard to squeeze them into the live well on a 17' fish n ski.
Launched from Fred's Sunday afternoon and caught these nice sacalait.
