Louisiana Saltwater Series - Delacroix, Sweetwater Marina

Date: 
Sat, 06/18/2011

Location:  Delacroix, Sweetwater Marina

 

The Louisiana Saltwater Series was developed by LDWF in conjunction with the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation to promote the conservation of Louisiana’s saltwater sport fish resources.  Through this catch-and-release saltwater fishing series, LDWF strives to enhance the resource while providing a competitive opportunity for avid fishermen and newcomers alike.

 

The 2011 LASS will be comprised of 7 fishing events and will target the tag and release of one of Louisiana’s most valuable sport fish, redfish.  Data collected from the tournament entries will serve as a valuable tool for LDWF fisheries managers and biologists to better understand the life history and habitat of sport fish.

Description

Biloxi WMA is a low brackish to saline marsh. Major vegetation includes marsh hay cordgrass, black rush, hog cane, smooth cordgrass, saltgrass, glasswort, and three square. There are a few oak trees on old ridges. Widgeon grass is the main submerged aquatic plant.

Due to Biloxi WMA’s tremendous number of bayous, sloughs, and potholes, the area is home to an abundance of fish, shrimp, crabs, waterfowl, and furbearers. There are a few canal spoil banks and ridges scattered throughout the marsh which provide birds and mammals refuge from rising water levels during storms or high tides.

Activities and Amenities

Hunting and trapping: Popular game species on Biloxi WMA include rabbits, rails, gallinules, snipe, ducks (lesser scaup, teal, wigeon, gadwall, shoveler, mottled, pintail, and mallard), and geese (blue and snow). There is an archery only deer season as well. See regulations for details.

Fishing and boating: Common fish species on Biloxi WMA include speckled trout, redfish, black drum, sheepshead, flounder, and croaker. Both recreational and commercial fishermen harvest large amounts of crab and shrimp in this area. See regulations for details.
