Fishing in Louisiana
We developped some precision trolling techniques many years ago, and have since put these techniques to good use in OH, NC, NY, MI, and CO on musky, walleye, trout, bass, crappie, and pickerel. The basic ideas is that you run a spread of lures 10-30 ft deep in clear, open water behind a boat moving 1-3 mph. Once you learn the speeds, lures, and depths in a lake or reservoir, it can be a very....  Read More

Brad Denson and his buddy Dan were back on the Bluewave this morning. We've been on a good run and today was no different. The wind was up which made it a little more difficult but the guys were armed with double rigged matrix in Shrimp a Creole and Green Hornet. We stopped at a reef and for the first 20 minutes we caught a few white trout and a throwback speck. While I was debating to run I....  Read More

It was great having Rick Woolsey from California and his Dad Dick back onboard the Bluewave today. The guys have been fishing with me for eight years, and it's always a pleasure. The goal was to catch trout, and the goal was achieved!! We loaded the K2 throwing double rigged Matrix Shad lures rigged on 1/4 oz Golden eye jig heads. Green Hornet, Avocado, Ultraviolet, and Lemon-head all....  Read More

What does the Save Louisiana Coalition have to say about the article on the sediment diversions? Are they for it or against it. I know they are against large scale diversions but these are a sediment diversions that i think would really benefit the region. Its as natural as can be compared to the natural flooding that took place before the levees. Just looking for opinions and opinions of the....  Read More

Wish I could tell you the fish were hot as usual but not one boat that I talked to had more than one fish, many of them struck out. Lucky we were able to get Jenn the first Red of her life maybe next week will be better.

In the summer of '13 I found a wildflower that deer were eating up. As I was trying to find what it was I decided to mix up a wildlife foodplot blend for all wildlife summer or winter with perennial weeds(wildflowers). They are looking good.Planted another, larger plot.

Inshore Fishing in Holly Beach in Southwest Louisiana
Has anyone ever had any luck fishing Holly Beach for sharks? I have the set up to be able to get my baits several hundred yards off the beach, but I want to know if I'm going to be wasting my time. Any suggestions on bait, location, time of the year, or any other pertinent information would be much appreciated!

Made a trip early Saturday morning to Buras/Empire with the wife and kids. Got a cabin at Joshuas, not bad for $100 a night. Fished around Bay adams picking up a few trout and a bull red. Made a move into Bastian Bay and found the tide falling good and tons of bait fish. Took a while to locate them, but finally did and the trout were nice. Live shrimp was the ticket. Ended with 31 trout and a....  Read More

Kayak Fishing in Southeast Louisiana
Can anyone give me any information on Ascend FS128T Sit-On-Top Angler Kayak? I'm looking into trying out kayak fishing this summer, and this seems to be the best bang for the buck. Any other suggestions or advice before purchasing a yak?

Left out of Breton sound marina yesterday and headed down the MRGO. On our third stop we hit paydirt. We were near the west cut on the MRGO. Dropped the anchor and stuffed the box with 2 lb trout. The hot color was shrimp cocktail vortex shad & 1/8oz jighead, although kamikaze and magneto worked well also. By 10 the trout bite slowed and the bull reds moved in. We threw back 3 bull reds, all....  Read More

Finally a Break in the weather! Went to grand isle fishing with my good friend Bruce Corley and my son Nick Foster, first stop was by the rocks and immediately started catching some nice trout. We made the decision to leave the trout biting because we knew the sow trout would be on the beach. I love when the plan comes to together, made right decision. Started fishing the beach at 7:00Am and....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
We went down to the marsh camp on Friday afternoon with the intention to tag some reds. We were met with very low water and could not get into the ponds.

Saturday started slow. We picked up a few specks here and there at the islands but not much happened until the water started moving. I got a call from a buddy that he was into them hot and heavy. We trolled up next to him, dropped....  Read More

This is the one month out of the year where the illusive speckled trout simply commits suicide with a Matrix Shad. This is one of the easiest times of year across south Louisiana so if you are wanting to book a trip now is the time and if you ware wanting to try it own your own then make sure to use your sick days and pick up some....  Read More

  • Harold with one of the trout he caught.
  • A nice 8 pounder for Harold.
  • Nice bull red caught on top water.
Rick Ledford wanted a very special trip for his Dad Harold so we teamed up and took him on a trout and red fish trip. Rick is a good friend and lives around the corner from me. Harold has been fighting cancer and was in bad shape in February. The day started off rough but the trout didn't care much as we were catching in the dirty water with Berkley rattle shrimp under a cork. When the bite....  Read More

  • Table shot of trout, drum, reds, and sheephead
Saturday morning Jerry and I launched out of BSM. We thought about following the flotilla down the back canal to try for speckled logs at the rocks, but elected to go for the mixed box close in. We still found some scattered nice trout in the Lake Robin area (all with eggs, so the rest will be going outside soon). We also got some sheephead and drum.

The reds refused to bite right away,....  Read More
