 Fish

Fishing, just like in many Louisiana coastal communities, is a 365 day adventure in Jefferson and with our liberal limits there will be plenty for you to bring home. Each season brings about new challenges for anglers. Whether saltwater or fresh — Jefferson has the perfect "fishing hole" for you. Winter is the perfect season for catching freshwater crappies or sac-au-lait, and you may even catch the bass spawning. Spring delivers the cats, flathead and blues, while the summer heat brings on the redfish and tarpon. Autumn brings large mouth bass teeming in our marshes and rivers.
