Default LDWF public meeting on Speckle Trout limits changes

LDWF to Hear Public Comment On Potential Spotted Seatrout Management At Public Meetings


Release Date: 01/23/2020

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) announced dates today for public meetings to be held on spotted seatrout management. The most recent stock assessment indicated spotted seatrout are overfished and undergoing overfishing and changes are necessary in order to recover the stock. The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission (LWFC) indicated it would like to hear public input before considering management changes. No action is being taken at this time, however input is being gathered prior to any potential rule changes. LDWF?s biological opinion is that a 20% reduction in harvest is needed in order to recover the stock by 2025 or sooner, but there are a range of options that can achieve that goal.
Management change options recently presented to the LWFC in early January 2020 included creel limit only changes, minimum size limit changes only, combined creel and minimum size limit changes, slot limit only changes, and combined slot limit and creel changes.
Below is a list of meeting dates and locations. All meetings will begin at 5:00 p.m., except the meeting in Ruston, which will begin at 1:00 p.m.
  • Monday, February 10, 2020 ? North Branch Library, 4130 West Park Ave, Gray, La
  • Wednesday, February 12, 2020 ? LDWF HQ, Herring Room, 2000 Quail Drive, Baton Rouge, La
  • Thursday, February 13, 2020 ? Lafayette Council Chambers, 705 West University Avenue, Lafayette, La
  • Wednesday, February 19, 2020 ? East Bank Regional Library, 4747 West Napoleon Avenue, Metairie, La
  • Thursday, February 20, 2020 ? Slidell Municipal Auditorium, 2056 Second Street, Slidell, La
  • Wednesday, February 26, 2020 ? Epps Memorial Library, 1320 North Simmons Street, Lake Charles, La
  • Thursday, February 27, 2019 ? Rapides Parish Extension Office, 300 Grady Britt Drive, Alexandria, La
  • Saturday, February 29, 2019 ? Lincoln Parish Library, 910 North Trenton Street, Ruston, La
LDWF is partnering with Louisiana Sea Grant to use interactive voting technology at these public hearings in response to a survey that will be given at the meetings. LDWF will also be sending out an email survey identical to the survey that will be administered at public meetings.

When I saw this my first thought was that I would go to this meeting. I have been to several other similar LDWF meetings and found them to be informative.


BUT ?. when I looked up the location..... I would not go there unless I was with a group of people or with a police escort. I would not want to be in that area after dark leaving alone.

For years I have seen stringers, especially in S.E. LA, of 25 12" to 14" Trout. What a waste. I would much rather catch 7-8 nice Trout around 20" than a bunch of throwbacks.
