Types of Tackle "Bait" used to catch fish in Jefferson Parish:

  • Angle- to fish with rod, fishing pole or hook & line, with or without a reel
  • Cast net - a light circular net of vegetable or synthetic materials, weighted, that is thrown by hand over water
  • Hook - any curved or bent device attached to a line for the purpose of taking fish, consisting of not more than one eye and one shank with no more than three barbs.
  • Live Bait- shrimp, squid or minnows
  • Monofilament - a single untwisted synthetic filament.
  • Trigger - any tension-loader rubber band or spring device that contains several feet of line and a hook, which is baited and set, which automatically hooks and plays a fish.
