Petition: To allow all Louisiana Fisherman access to all tidal waters in the state of Louisiana

Louisiana fisherman are losing fishing access in marshes across Louisiana due to land owners who are stopping anglers from accessing tidal waters that go through their property.

Land ownership should constitute ownership of land and not the water that flows in and out and over it.

We want to have the “if it floats it boats” policy enacted in the State of Louisiana.

This policy is in line with every other state in the United States.

We believe that if water is not landlocked, then the water should be accessible by licensed Louisiana Anglers. We believe that our state representatives should represent the will of the majority and not just a select few.

It’s time Louisiana to catch up to the rest of the nation on this issue and change the confusing, antiquated law that is in place.
