We had a big group fishing today from the Monroe area. Our first stop found the trout chasing shrimp out of the water again. With the Power Pole deployed it was fish on!! 14-19 inch trout coming in the Bluewave on double rigged Matrix and Vortex Shad. Purple Haze Vortex has been our top producer. Once the bite was over we switched gears to reds. We hooked four reds in the first ten minutes,....  Read More

I have had a cancellation for Monday and Tuesday.
The weather looks good and trout are biting if you like to make a trip.

I finally have a day off. Here is a pic from a few weeks ago of Cody Baker's 212 pound yellowfin tuna. One hour and twenty minute fight. I pitched the fish a bait and handed the rod off to him. It was his first yellowfin as well. Congrats Cody!

  • Sunrise Bull Red
  • Cody with 2 nice trout.
I had Tom, Bob and Cody from Texas on board the Blue Wave for Friday and Saturday. Friday I didn't take pictures but, the guys fished hard, never gave up and need up with 48 speckled trout in the K2.
Saturday found us still fighting the barometer. Cody hooked a Bull Red right at day break that gave him all the fun he wanted on light tackle. Took pictures and released to fight another day.....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Leeville / Golden Meadow in Southeast Louisiana
The long awaited trout fishing has finally arrived in Leeville. Our angler families are bringing easy mule speck catches along with big white trout catches, minutes from the docks. Deep channels and canals at openings of bays are holding nice fish. There was a boat parade this morning, everyone heading out to take advantage of this trout run.

Cool weather has made Leeville fishing....  Read More

Day 2 the guys wanted something that pulled a little more and I knew just the right thing. We got some bait crabs and off we went. The winds were forecasted to be stronger today and they eventually were so I decided to stay in a protected area. We used crack crab on the bottom for black drum and redfish. The redfish wouldn't quite cooperate with us but the black drum did. We ended up with....  Read More

Freshwater Fishing in Louisiana
I live in Iowa and would like to build a air cooled direct drive mud boat. It seems the general name is a Louisiana mud boat. There isn't much info regarding the mod or building process like there is on jet jons. The jet jons are good but I want simplicity. If there is anyone out there who can help or point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.

I had the pleasure to take out Mr. Jimmy Boudreaux and his farming associates. The Day was beautiful and the fishing was great. We probably caught close to 300 fish today but a lot where smaller specks and white trout. It was non stop action the entire day, catching at every stop we made. Matrix Shad in Ultraviolet were used on the double rigs and Vudu shrimp was used under a cork. We ended....  Read More

Great day is what my guys were saying all day long. It was a beautiful day, even the wind layed down to make the lakes slick. We had a good start to the day by putting 30 specks in cooler by 8. From there we rode around looking for better conditions but the wind was still blowing at this point. We found a flock of birds and this was the key. The shrimp would come and go but by staying....  Read More

Clarence Mayes came in from Georgia with his two buddies Matt and Jesse today. We left out of the Reel Inn at daybreak. We had a chilly ride and a real slow start. We chased a few birds and hit a few reefs but it just didn't seem to be working. We stuck with it and after a number of stops we finally found what we were looking for. The specks were hitting the Matrix Shad shrimp creole under a....  Read More

I saw this product at the New Orleans seafood fest over the weekend and thought it would be perfect to discuss on this forum. Two local boys trying to spread their love of food and help save the Louisiana wetlands... Seems like a win win to me! Check out their video and let me know what you think!

With these north winds blowing steady all week, will Lake Mechant/Caillou/Raccourci be worth fishing or will it be chocolate milk? Trying to decide if I should look for trout or go hunt reds.

Thanks!

Richard and Alison Rolke joined me on the big Bluewave today. Pulled up at our first stop and dropped the Power Pole. The shrimp were jumping out the water and the trout chasing them!! All the trout were nice up to 17 inches. Once the bite shut down we made another move. Our second stop dropping the Power Pole had us reeling in fish every cast for over a hour. Easy and good as it gets today,....  Read More
