Marion Collier had a BIG TIME in Dularge this week doing exactly what he asked for...fighting BULL REDS! The bite started a little slower than normal, but was expected considering we didn't catch fish until 9:30am Friday morning! It was like clockwork! When the time got closer, the bites got hot! With 25-30+ mph winds, we had one thing in mind...catch about 6-8 fish, and then head in....  Read More

I had Mr. Paul and his cousin Dan from San Antonio onboard this week and they put the hammer down on 75 solid trout quick.
The where catching as fast as I could take their fish off and bait the lines, they where amazed at how quick the bite was and couldn't believe that they never had to touch a fish or bait a line. They worked the crap out of me but it was all worth it, 7:45am we had our....  Read More

We braved the small craft advisory and headed south through some pretty rough seas but when we hit the island it was game time, 2nd cast produced a keeper trout and it was pretty much non stop action for the next several hours.

After we put 75 nice trout in the box my crew asked for some drag pulling so we headed inside to soak crabs, first stop nothing but 2nd stop had the rods bent....  Read More

Day 2 with Marion Collier ended just as Day 1 did...big smiles, big memories, and of course BIG FISH! We hit a flock of birds as we were cutting across the lake and picked up 9 lagniappe speckled trout. Our first stop in the holes we found the bite slow, but steady! We made one short move and it was FISH CITY! We had bull reds coming in two at a time! When there's two lines out, it leaves me no....  Read More

30 mph plus winds yesterday had us Bull red fishing, conditions were brutal. The bite was kinda slow but my crew enjoyed being on the water regardless. The fish we caught were a bonus and they couldn't thank me enough for having such a good time. Crab on the bottom Carolina rigged and patience!! We tried one spot in the marsh for trout before getting run in by approaching storms. Thanks Capt....  Read More

You could not have asked for better weather this past weekend around Grand Isle.

I arrived late Saturday morning and had to find someplace to fish as boats were everywhere. I figured I would just run East until the boats started to thin out and start from there. Not sure what island I was at, but it was the second isle east of Grand Isle. When I arrived there were no boats at all, but....  Read More

Another day of horrible weather but we made the best of it.....started the morning off with beautiful weather.....calm winds and seas made it easy to land our snapper limit early and good thing because as we started chasing reds the weather approached quickly giving us enough time to land 7 reds, a drum, and sheephead....all in all we had a great time and safe trip!!

ANOTHER WINDY DAY = PLENTY TROUT
NO RAIN TO DEAL WITH

Left the dock at 11am with Cody and Krystal.
We made plenty moves to get the limit of 75 trout for 2pm before the rain got close to us.

Most trout caught on a cork 3ft down on live shrimp .

Jacob Richard and crew joined me today. Brutal windy conditions made it tough. It looked as if we were going to get on them at our first stop, but the bite was short lived. It was stick and move the rest of the day. We worked hard and covered some water not finding any fish to cooperate. Got a call from Capt Josh that he was on a few fish, so we made a quick move and started catching too....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Lake Borgne / Chef Menteur
Great article in Thursday's Advocate on the Lake. Says the trout are on. I am planning to go soon,but have a small boat so the bridges are tricky if it is very windy. How are the marshes off the ICW , Chef Pass areas doing? Any suggestions would be thankful
Thanks

What a hell of a day. The forecast was for rough with small craft warnings. The one think that most of the captains I talked to this morning was that if we could get to the back of the island we could catch some fish. Well I beat Capt Chris to the spot that we had been fishing for the last couple of days and I didn't want to step on his spot and was worried that I had parked too close to his....  Read More

Day 1 with Marion Collier was as good as it gets! Marion fished with me last spring and caught his first ever redfish in 73 years of life, and on this trip he caught his first ever speckled trout! Marion specifically asked for bull reds and a big fight, so we didn't even worry about fishing for trout first thing! We hit the bull reds wide open as we caught 12-15 of them in the 24-32 lb. range.....  Read More

Today I had 2 guys from the Dakota Decoy company and they knew the adverse conditions we would face but wanted to get on the boat and give it a go anyway. I ran out to the islands along with Capts. Josh and Chris and we knew it would be a tough day. I had 100 live shrimp. We bounced around the island but never found what we were looking for. I decided to gamble again and go to the next island....  Read More
