Seeing Red: Louisiana Sues Feds Over Red Snapper Season Squeeze


In the Sporstman's Paradise, seasons overlap constantly, with shrimp running into oysters and squirrel working to stay out of the shadow of quail.

Louisiana yielded the second highest seafood totals in the nation, with 1.5 billion pounds recorded.
