YUCK!!! 12-7-13

Yuck was exactly what the weather was today. The only thing that makes crappy weather bearable is good fishing. I helped out Capt. Marty Lacoste today while Capt. Chris Venable and Olden Rodrigue helped me out taking care of Daniel Louque's crew. Most of you reading this are saying that we are crazy for fishing today. Maybe!!! Lol But when talking to our customers they wanted to go and as many of you know Capt. Marty and I don't shy away from fishing in tough conditions. One of the first things Mike said this morning was lets see how good you guys are because anyone can catch in great conditions. Nothing like being challenged. We left out of the Reel Inn in cold windy conditions. The fog was rolling off the water like steam. As we pulled up to the first stop and started chunking our Matrix Devin hooked up first but lost the trout at the boat. We put 2 in ice chest and nothing. Marty was on a great bite just down the bayou so I trolled near him only to pick up a couple fish while his crew were slamming them and talking trash to boot. Then something as rare as seeing an albino black man happened, seagulls started diving about 80 yards away on shrimp no bigger than a fingernail. Never seen gulls diving in 20-25mph wind and temps in the low 40s in December deep in the marsh. They usually are hanging out at the Walmart parking lot in those conditions. I trolled over to them and it was game on. The birds didn't stick around but with the Powerpole down the trout stuck with us until 100 hit the ice at 10:30. The fish were holding in 2-4ft of water over oyster reefs. Thanks Capt. Marty for setting up the trip. Thanks Capt. Chris and Olden for showing Daniel Louque's crew a good time.

The fishing is incredible and if you're looking for an Xmas gift give me a call/text and we can hook you up with a gift certificate.

Dularge fishing

What side of the marsh area produces more fish in the winter time? ( Lake Mechant or Sister lake ) I am new to fishing the Dularge area so any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for a great trip!!

Big thanks to Capt. Travis Miller with Miller Time Charters and Capt. Marty LaCoste with Absolute Fishing Charters out of DuLarge for a great speck trip this weekend. I've fished with quite a few guides and Travis and Marty are the real deal. I fished out of Travis's boat and we were slangin trout and cracking jokes with Travis in the kind of weather conditions that keep most guides at the camp. We had a blast and will def. be booking another trip with these guys soon.

Thanks again for going the extra mile and putting together a great experience for us Travis. Looking forward to a blast and cast trip soon!!

Best Regards,
Mike Segura

Thanks Mike. I had a blast.

504Boy - the fish are settling in the marsh. The two main areas are Bayou Sevuer and Deer Bayou. Sevuer is full of oyster so it handles the wind better especially when the water drops. With that said the Deer Bayou area has been very productive and water has been clean. You can catch fish in both and it seems that every other week I switch sides. The key is to fish your baits slow this time of year and don't stay in a spot for long unless you are steadily catching.
