The main thing that comes to mind when you mention freshwater fishing in South Louisiana is BASS! But that doesn't mean there aren't other fish to be had. Bream, perch, crappie, catfish, and other species inhabit these waters in spades! Of course there are big bass tournaments year around with the fancy bass boats and the festival type atmosphere. But there are also nice days spent with the kids catching bluegill and catfish. In fact, nearby Lake Palourde is regarded by locals as one of the best bream fishing spots around...all within sight of the new Amelia Belle Casino! This part of the world may have the widest variety of locations where freshwater fish are caught than any other place on the planet. From the cypress swamps, to the tidal marshes, to the big lakes, to the small hidden ponds, you just can't go wrong. Whether you are a hard core bass angler or just a family looking to wet a line, we have what you need all within minutes of Amelia, Louisiana!
