My buddy Jay and I headed out of Breton Sound Marina around 5 AM Wednesday morning looking forward to a trout slam on the rocks. We were headed out via the Spoil Canal when the motor died. We could not get it going. Thank God for our SEA Tow membership! Hot Rod of Sea tow was on his way from Slidell and we bided our time fishing on the bottom for monster gaff tops. Around 9 AM Capitan Guidry.... Read More

Congratulations to my sister, Lisa Johnson and her husband Mike, who recently completed a nice day of red fishing. Looks like a limit for each, plus some specks and sheepshead thrown into the mix. I haven't fished at all yet this year, due to some updates ongoing on my boat, windy days when I could go and a recent vacation. But very shortly I will be out on the water chasing some nice bull reds.... Read More
Arrived at the Rigolets Marina around 545am to find no live bait and a full parking lot. Headed to the trestles and the fish werent biting.Got a call that the marina had a few live shrimp arriving so headed back in to get some. This was my sons first trip with us and I could tell he was getting bored not catching, wanted to make it fun for him so decided to head to a little hole where I had.... Read More
I was fishing with clients on Saturday when the inevitable happened. I was barely idling in the MRGO making an adjustment for my clients, when Bam! I hit a pipe and stalled out my motor. I didn’t hit it hard and thought I’d be okay, but when I put the boat back in gear, it was obvious I tore up my lower unit. I called Captain Frank and Captain Markham to pick up my guys and continue fishing..... Read More
A few days ago I was motoring across Breton Sound and came across a horrible sight... Thousands of big mature redfish flying dead on the surface. They went on for miles and miles. I know anyone out there recently can confirm this. I took pictures and video. The fish were stacked up in a rip line with 'pogie foam'. That nasty brown foam that is a byproduct of pogie ships harvesting. The.... Read More
My gf's son, Cody, came down from Missouri Saturday to spend the summer with his mother. Sunday, we packed up the boat and headed to Leeville. Got down there about 8 a.m., launched out of Boudreaux's and headed to the Cut Through Canal on the SE side of Little Lake. Worked out great. Right after Cody fought a little Stingray, the Baitfeeder reel started singing. After a little run, the hook.... Read More

Wanted to get out on the water pretty early so my Uncle could get some sunrise pictures so with all the boats running to the north shore, we decided to launch at delagos in Irish Bayou. Got out on the water and started jiggin a green hornet on the east side on the south shore. Wasn't doing much all morning so when the tide slacked I thought I would make a move and stick a couple. Started putting.... Read More
Go to the island around 2 this morning to fish some lights and the tide was dead so so was the bite. Also on my third cast of the morning I went to move down and slipped on some rocks and my hand ended up getting shredded by some oyster shells and barnacles so I wrapped it up in a rag and finally got the bleeding to stop. We went and slept in the truck through that rain and then headed to.... Read More
I'm going fishing Saturday morning and can't decide where to try. I want to learn Delacroix, but I am wondering if this is an area I need to go with someone who is familiar before I go on my own. Is it fairly easy to navigate? Anything I should be wary of (obstructions, shallow areas, etc.)? I will be fishing out of a 1546 xpress semi-v. My other options are Hopedale or Bayou Bienvenue. These.... Read More
Took the girls out for some trout bashing this weekend. We headed out of Cocodrie and were disappointed to find only a small area of green water, but the trouts were ready and willing to eat in it! My wife and I took 30 beautiful trout Friday including a 4 lbs'er.....Saturday my brother and his fiancé joined us and we took 49. The bite was fast and furious at daylight, but shut down to almost.... Read More
Thick trout caught near marsh island today. Windy. All trout had shrimp in them. We caught on plastics and popping cork. Caught one that had a broken tail at one time. It was short but the thickest fillets. Everyone we spoke to caught reds.
Michael and his guests had a great time putting 66 trout in the box using Campo's live shrimp 3 ft. under a cork, especially the 2 12 yr. olds, nice group. Another great day in the Blazer Bay. Berkley rods and Penn reels did them in.
Day 2 for Harry and his two guests and it was almost a rerun of yesterday as the guys ended up with 70 trout using Berkley rods and Penn reels with Campo's live shrimp under a cork. Great day in the Blazer Bay till the next one.
