LDWF gathering data on bass clubs and tourneys

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – State wildlife officials are launching a new program to gather and share data on bass tournaments in the state.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says in a Thursday news release that its new Louisiana Bass Tournament Program compiles information from clubs and tournament trails. The data is to be made available to anyone interested in the status of selected bass fisheries in Louisiana.

An annual report will be generated at the end of each year and made available online. The 2013 report will be available in early 2014. Results will give anglers a good idea of what they can expect when fishing different lakes and a way to see how they stacked up against other anglers. Anyone who hosts a bass tournament on Louisiana's waters can participate.
