The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is hosting a tagged catfish derby at all of their "Get Out and Fish!" ponds.

Derbies will take place between Saturday, December 18, and Saturday, December 25.

Each of the 17 sites participating in the derby will have 10 tagged channel catfish released with the other stocked catfish.

Anglers who catch and report a tagged channel catfish caught at one of these ponds during the derby will receive a fishing prize pack from LDWF.
