Had pretty good morning fishing yesterday. Plenty of Reds and a few specks... But question is this... Being I am a sport fisher I am required to have all safety gear on board including running lights. Are commercial fishermen exempt from having required running lights??? I met up with an oyster boat yesterday morning which never slowed and was running in the dark without a light what so ever! .... Read More
Day 2 with James, David, and Kera Wheeler had us targeting reds. As soon as the Big Bluewave stopped and the PowerPole was deployed...BAM, It was red fish on!! Gold spoons was the ticket today. We doubled up quickly, then several singles hit the spoons. We put 7 reds in the K2 in less than 20 minutes (by 7am), then the switch turned off. It was stick and move the rest of the day picking at.... Read More
We got up on Sunday with a little less wind to start the day. So we headed to the lake wanting to catch some trout. Wanting to go fish East Timbalier Island but it was little rough for my group. I stop at few of the islands on the way. Jump around most of the morning catching few here and there not many keepers. Then the tide switched and we found the trout. We got on a great trout bite behind.... Read More
I’m not a “Night Owl” but when it comes to fishing, I’ll happily skip a night of sleep. I headed out with Matthew Ory and Michael Marcello along with some other friends for some night time Speckled Trout action. Launching out of Jug’s Landing in Dularge, Louisiana, we all knew we were going to have a good trip because of the conditions. Once we arrived to our first location at one of the rigs,.... Read More
Farewell to the fishing grounds that have produced so many fish for all that frequented this incredible area. I sure hope the artificial reefs that are being talked about, really happen. I will believe it when I see it.
Good trout bite even with west wind. We had several limits. The barges at Fourchon had lots of trout. Even caught some on plastic. First of the summer on plastic. They did not want croaker. Bring a lot of live shrimp because there are many undesirables along with trout.
We had the Slay Steel group in from Meridian. They wanted to go shark fishing, so we left the dock at daylight. The morning started off with a beautiful sunrise and the day got better when we dropped the anchor. We cast out four rods and didn't have to time to start a conversation when we hooked three sharks. The bite was on! For the first hour and a half we.... Read More

I've been absolutely swamped the past few weeks and unable to post any reports. Meanwhile on a daily basis I'm getting a text from somebody telling me to go look at this article or that article....Capt. So and So said there isn't any trout anymore....how do you feel about lowering limits....Should guides keep their limits....live bait should be illegal..... blah, blah, blah...
Went to Lafitte Saturday and ran down to Barataria Bay and the surrounding areas. Water was a stained and the trout bite was non existent for us. Only a couple of small throw backs. Started fishing our way back in with little success. Finally got a few keepers on the north end of Little Lake with 2 flounders and a red fish. Also threw back several small bass. Spoons caught the bass, red and the.... Read More
James Wheeler was back onboard the big Bluewave today with his Son and daughter in law. We knew the trout bite was slow in the morning, but we had to give it a try (gotta go to know). Stained water and a ripping current at our first two stops produced a goose egg. We found better water at our third stop and the current wasn't running 20mph!!!! Second cast produced a big fat trout!! We.... Read More
We had a busy day today at Sweetwater Marina in Delacroix. Capt. Jack did not have a charter, but folks who launched at Sweetwater did really well. Those who headed outside caught a decent amount of Trout, inside they were catching Reds and Bass.
We have plenty of live shrimp and would love to see you here at Sweetwater where customer service is our No. 1 priority. And remember, we are.... Read More
We drifted in the bays protected from the wind picking through the trout. We ended up with 15 trout with a couple whites mixed in. There were a lot of small trout and catfish mixed in. All fish were caught on tiger matrix shad.
Today was very similar to yesterday. We got a late start with all the 'fun' happening last night at the Reel Inn. The reds were exactly where we had been catching them. We stopped and the guys put a red and a drum in the Bluewave within a minute on gold spoons. We worked the grass line catching 8 reds. When the bite shut down we ran and soaked some crabs with limited success. We decided it.... Read More
