Best Time for Planting Fall Tomatoes?

When would be a good time to set out fall tomato transplants for someone here in South Louisiana (Lafayette)? Having already pulled out the spring/summer tomato plants I was looking forward to planning out the fall plantings and with this being my first year gardening I am not sure when the right time would be. Any advice would be great. Thanks a bunch.

I'm in Baton Rouge and the recommended transplant dates here are July 1 - August 15. I've pulled all mine too, except a few cherry tomatoes, but those will go in another week or so, then I'll plant the fall tomatoes.
