Don’t ever think Johnny law isn’t watching, even at 9pm.

From LDWF email:
Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement agents cited three Louisiana men for alleged bowfishing and boating violations in St. Charles Parish on July 11.

Agents cited Shawn Matherne, 38, of Paradis, for violating Wildlife Management Area (WMA) rules and regulations.  Rodney Curry, 37, of Luling, was cited for failing to comply with personal flotation device (PFD) requirements.

Agents were on patrol on July 11 around 9 p.m. on the Salvador WMA when they noticed a vessel outfitted with LED lights typically used for bowfishing.  The agents then observed the subjects bowfishing from the vessel inside the Salvador WMA.

The agents made contact with the subjects and notified them that bowfishing is prohibited in the Salvador WMA.  The agents also found that the subjects did not have enough PFDs for everyone on board the vessel.

Failing to comply with PFD requirements brings up to a $50 fine and 15 days in jail.  Violating WMA rules and regulations carries a $100 to $350 fine and up to 60 days in jail.

The photo shows a screen shot of a Facebook post by one of the Westwego councilmen. Apparently they want to make the launch accessible to only Westwego residents. The post has since been taken down by the poster.

If memory serves correctly, way back, when you would cross the levee just before the public launch, there was a sign that read something like ‘Entering unincorporated Jefferson Parish.’ Wouldn’t this mean the launch resides outside Westwego city limits? I like having certain perks when it comes to being a Westwego resident but wasn’t this public launch reconstruction paid for with state dollars that were obtained partly through the work of then Rep. Billiot?

Just doesn’t seem to be right to all the others that use the launch.

A message from LDWF

Recently, LDWF has had to respond to several fake news articles, one regarding increased fishing fines and, most recently, the supposed forced closure of hunting and fishing season because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
None of it is true.

Any valid information regarding LDWF actions is on our website at or our Facebook page at  Please verify the accuracy of any information at these sites before sharing it on social media.

“It is incredibly unfortunate that some individuals would go out of their way to spread false information with the intent of creating confusion for the wonderful people of Louisiana,” said LDWF Secretary Jack Montoucet. “At a time when we are pulling together to deal with a deadly health crisis, there are some who find such actions amusing.”

LDWF supports the recent comments by Gov. John Bel Edwards encouraging people “to go outside and to stay active during this time, as long as they practice social distancing when they are around their neighbors.”
It is essential to remember that people should not gather in groups of more than 10, that you practice social distancing – stay at least six feet apart - and that you strictly follow the state and local orders related to the pandemic.

We hope your families are well during these challenging days and have the opportunity to spend time outdoors together – whether relaxing in your backyard, biking in your neighborhood, hiking a nature trail, taking advantage of our upcoming turkey season, or going fishing near your home.
As always, you’ll need a valid fishing or hunting license and must follow all fish and game regulations for the state of Louisiana.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is charged with managing and protecting Louisiana’s abundant natural resources. For more information, visit us at or signup to receive email alerts.
