BATON ROUGE - After silver screen adventures with space raccoons and cloned raptors, Hollywood star Chris Pratt is enjoying something simpler while filming The Magnificent Seven in Louisiana: fishing.

The Hollywood star posted a picture on Instagram Thursday of a bass he caught during downtime in filming the remake of the 1960 western with Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke.

"I LOVE LOUISIANA!!" wrote Pratt, who is an avid hunter.
