A U.S. Coast Guard official says the search is on to find a Louisiana man lost in the water while fishing in Grand Isle. 

34-year-old Joey Guidroz of Galliano was fishing with friends on the isle around 4 p.m. when he went behind a break wall to cast his net, according to the Coast Guard. 

The man's friends said they lost sight of him about 20 minutes after he went over the wall. 

Shortly after, they reported Guidroz missing and a search party was launched to find him.
