  • Got to love it
  • Trout trout trout
  • Bulls
Even with the strong winds this week I have been able to put together some very nice boxes in lake P. The name of the game was finding clean water and that has been on the east side of the lake. I made 3 trips Thursday -Saturday and each day was the same results. Averaging 35 trout and a few keeper reds with a ton of bull reds. Has been a great week and should only get better once the shrimp.... Read More

More of the same nasty conditions on Monday morning. Day 2 with Bob Jardine and Allen Hickman was another great experience for the Pennsylvania crew. The winds were howling 20-25 out of the south and I was very apprehensive on how our day would go. Bob had the big red honor from the previous day so Alan was looking to bump him down with an even larger redfish. Of course before that could happen.... Read More

This question is directed to any recreational fisherman that fish for red snapper.

NMFS cut the season to 11 days and that will likely get shorter because of further actions due to noncompliance. This latest cut is the result of a lawsuit brought by a number of individuals.

Would you knowingly do business with any of them?


My answers is No! What is yours?

Bass Fishing in Toledo Bend in Central Louisiana
This weekend I'm making my first trip to Toledo Bend. I am staying in Milam, TX. I would really appreciate if any advice: what areas to focus on, what launch to use (Newell's Point and Emerald's Cove are closest to my cabin), etc.

I'm really looking forward to it, should be nice weather all weekend. Thanks in advance!

  • Bob Jardine gets his first Louisiana redfish.
  • Allen Hickman with a nice red!
Windy weekend on the DU! Bob Jardine and his customer Allen Hickman arrived at the Lakehouse late Saturday night. They flew in from Pennsylvania to tackle the mighty south Louisiana redfish. We left the dock Sunday morning around 6:30 with the winds around 12 mph. I know they wanted big reds but I convinced them to try the trout for at least an hour. Bob & Allen had no problem with the idea.... Read More

  • Double hook-ups!
Picked up a nice crew from the Chateau De Ryan camp on Bayou Dularge Saturday morning. I had 2 couples from California that went to school with Ike & Coogan Ryan. The guys treated them to a night of bowfishing with Capt John Verrett(The real deal when it comes to bowfishing at night for redfish) followed up by a trip with me in the daylight hours. Our first stop was very slow due to no tidal.... Read More

  • Perry with a nice red that ate up the blueback swimbait!
4/10/14....Day 2 with Perry Pellegrin with Shell was another good day on the DU! We only had a few hours to fish as Perry and his guest had to get back early. We fished roughly 3 hours catching 45 nice trout and 4 reds by 9:45 am. Swim baits in bunker and blueback got the job done quickly. The trout were feeding on small minnows and the swim baits mimicked what they were eating. The trout were.... Read More

Catching up on reports from past few days.
4/9/14..It was a very good day on the DU with Perry Pellegrin with Shell. Capts Gerald & Josh Ellender helped out with the 3 boat trip with everyone getting in on the action. We worked over the Lake Mechant area catching fish in the lakes and adjacent bayous north of the lake. The trout were pretty easy to locate on the falling tide along with.... Read More

Just left the Gulf Council meeting and boy do I need some duct tape and tin foil.

As a result of the lawsuit filed by Gary Jarvis and a group of others, NMFS has entered into an agreement with the plaintiffs for a 'stay' in the proceedings and in exchange they are taking several actions at the Council level.

The first action is a severe reduction in the Recreational Red Snapper.... Read More

Guys, I'm looking for some feedback on the Blazer Bay 2220 Professional or 2220 Fisherman. I am toying with the idea of upgrading and would like some feedback from guys who own this rig or have ridden in one. I know this boat will be skinny enough for the marsh I fish, but how well does it handle a chop? I currently own a Skeeter ZX 20 bay boat and have fished out of it for 6 years. Thanks in.... Read More
