Big Fish: Good deals for Louisiana anglers this weekend

(WVUE) -

The good news list is long this weekend for Louisiana anglers.

The speckled trout fishing on the east side of the Mississippi River has greatly improved. We're talking about Black Bay, Breton Sound,  Chandeleur Sound and all the surrounding coastal marshes.

On the west side of the river, the summer of solid fishing continues with great catches from Grand Isle all the way past Cocodrie.

Now the Mississippi's high summer levels have finally started to drop. That's a big deal when we start looking at our fall fishing.

August is the month that the world's largest tackle company starts to release its 2016 products. For that, we headed down to Puglia's Sporting Goods to get a little glimpse of what's new, and maybe a few deals.
