Family Fish Fest a huge success

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries’ Family Fish Fest at Campo’s Marina in Shell Beach on Saturday, May 31, was a huge success, and event winners took home loads of prizes. Launched earlier this year, Family Fish Fest events are designed to increase youth and family involvement in fishing and fisheries conservation. Each event includes fishing opportunities with live redfish and speckled trout tagging at all saltwater locations. The public is encouraged to bring out their entire family for what promises to be an exciting day of fishing, hands-on activities, educational exhibits and great prize giveaways. The event included a mobile touch tank, fish identification, knot tying lessons, cast net lessons, minnow races, casting tutorials, LDWF mascot Robbie the Redfish and arts and crafts.
