According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 72 million Americans are obese, with all 50 states having rates of obesity over 15%. Obesity is more than just a weight issue; it's a leading cause for health problems such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and certain types of cancer.

Now that school is out and summer has officially begun, many anglers are heading to the coastal waters of Louisiana for rig fishing in June.  Local anglers love rig fishing in June as the weather is generally calm and the temperatures aren’t too hot (just yet) and the fishing is as good as it gets – especially for the tasty and hard fighting red snapper. In fact, the world record for red snapper caught on a fly rod was landed by Susan Gros when fishing with Tommy Pellegrin of Custom Charters back in 2006.

If you love the delicious taste of red snapper, now is your time to take advantage of the red snapper recreational fishing season. The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries announced that the fishing season will start June 1 and end June 19.

Lately, the recreational fishing industry has been hit hard with a number of challenges. Between the oil spill and damaging weather, the media outlines that this region hasn't had many breaks.

Fishermen are headed out to Belle Isle as of late, and who can stop them with all the catfish swimming around? Belle Isle is infamous for their famous catches of channel and blue catfish during the springtime, and this year is no exception.
