NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

You should have no trouble catching fish and football this weekend.

The Intracoastal waterway is a short run for anglers from New Orleans to Slidell and an easy mix box of fish, leaving plenty of time to get in front of the big screen for both LSU on Saturday and Saints on Sunday.

Captain Bubby Lemmie and I found quite a variety. Unfortunately, the day was cut a little short when we came across a fellow angler in need.

"I was fishing, and battery went dead," the angler said. "Keep it on the trickle charge all the time, but it did not work!"

We gave him a tow and headed for the fish cleaning table. And by the way, sea tow is running their special two months free right now, so you might want to check into that.

So, it doesn't matter if you are looking for bass, redfish, flounder, or speckled trout or drum - or maybe just to do a good deed - be safe on the water this weekend!
