The experimental season began on Sunday, June 1 and will last through sunrise on Aug. 15. There is a limit of 50 frogs per vessel and a minimum size of 5 inches for bull frogs and 3 inches for pig frogs.
St. Charles Parish President V.J. St. Pierre said he will take advantage of the new nighttime season.

Self-clearing permits are required for each person engaged in any nighttime activity in the Salvador Wildlife Management Area. The permits can be obtained at Pier 90 in Luling and at the boat launch in Bayou Gauche. Permits may also be downloaded from www.wlf.louisiana.gov/permit/self-clearing-permit.
Possession of firearms is prohibited in the wildlife management area during the nighttime season and all watercraft must have working running lights and the proper number of life jackets for passengers.
It is also illegal to harm or disturb alligators. Only licensed alligator hunters can harvest alligators during the alligator season.
Access to the Salvador Wildlife Management Area is limited to boat travel and is primarily via three major routes: Bayou Segnette from Westwego into Lake Cataouatche, then west to area; Sellers Canal to Bayou Verrett into Lake Cataouatche, then west to area; or via Bayou Des Allemands.
