It was a great looking weekend to fish and the fish were biting! We had a fun bunch of guys come in to fish with us as their duck hunting plans were scratched due to high water. The crew was getting together to duck hunt near Ruston,La. but their blinds were 3 ft under water. Capt Josh Ellender and I took the crew out for 2 afternoon fishing trips to take advantage of a better bite and less boats on the water to contend with. The mornings were very slow and the reds were eating up big time after the sun warmed things up a bit. We left the dock both days around 2 pm and it was the right call as we crushed the reds catching hundreds of fish! The guys had reds on their lines 2 and 3 at a time! The guys caught their limits and were a blast to fish with both days. I fished with Patrick Reesby,Mark Huffy,Glen Calhoun and Stuart Simoneaud while Capt Josh fished with Matt Huffy,John O'Neil and Joe Duson. The reds were in a broad range of sizes with fish from 16-27 inches. We only caught a few trout both days but we really didn't fish for them. We brought in over 225 pounds of redfish and the crew won't forget this trip anytime soon. Good luck fishing.

Love those reds Capt. If you don't mind me asking what yall catch them on? Keep up the good work.
It sure was a great 2 days of catching!
Capt. Bill said it right, easy catching and a box full of redfish. I definitely could get use to leaving at 2pm and getting back to the dock before it is dark with our limit of fish! Thanks again Capt. Bill for the trip and once again Dularge is the place to be! We caught everything on swim baits on Friday and a mix of swim baits and shrimp on Saturday. The swim baits we were using were HLT in the blue tiger and a regular swim bait in the bunker color.
