The weather next weekend won't keep me and my brother in law from driving the 8 hrs from Florida. We would appreciate any help on where to put in to be a little more protected. We planned on Joshuas Marina but that doesn't look like it would block too much of the wind.. so any help would be much appreciated.Coming to witness the world famous redfishing first hand.
Fished Wednesday afternoon out of Boudreaux's. Could not get out into the Lake due to a strong south wind and reports at the landing of the water being dirty from the shrimp trollers sent me to the east side of Leeville. I decided to try the power lines and points. Wife used live minnows and I used the Matrix Shad, Lemon Head color. Keeper size Speckle trout were very scarce and the white trout.... Read More

Small black tip shark maybe 3 feet long caught in Stump Lagoon in the Rigolets on dead shrimp bottom fishing. This on the heels of what had to be a much, much larger shark yesterday 100 yards or so yards from the HWY 90 bridge. It ran out 200 yards of 80 lb. test braided line super fast before snapping it. Can't confirm that one was a shark, but my gut intuition is leaning that way judging by.... Read More
Yet another productive weekend fishing out of Leeville. We didn't exactly fill the box up, but we had a great time none the less. Ending the day a little after lunch on Saturday with 2 reds, 26 really nice specks, and a handful of white trout we were plenty satisfied. Armed with live minnows, we started out around East Timbalier and worked our way in. Of course, on Saturday, the only thing a.... Read More
Jay and Trey Hatcher and Misti Borderlon joined me today. Redfish again today was our target. Our first few stops had us with a goose egg. We made a move and found the fish waiting for us. We loaded the K2 to the top again and could barely close the lid. Reds and puppy drum every cast! Good times by all. Jay and Trey went back and forth on catching the largest red!! Thanks again guys for.... Read More
The fishing was decent today at Sweetwater Marina in Delacroix. Capt. Jack did not have a charter, but anglers who launched here reported catching a decent amount of Trout today. Some anglers staying here at the lodge have reported doing well catching Reds and Bass over the last few days. The Trout are all being caught on the outside, mostly Breton Island. Reds and Bass have been caught in.... Read More
We plan on going out to Last Island this weekend. What's some opinions on taking the grandkids ,ages 3 and 6 out this far. We will be launching at a camp in the Cocodrie area in a 22' bayboat. I think its too long of a ride for the little ones. Any thoughts?
David and Darlene Landry joined me on the Bluewave today. We found a slow bite at our first stop. We picked away at the fish as they came in spurts. Our second stop found the fish stacked as we had them coming in every cast. We filled the K2 to the top as we could hardly close the lid. My crew had the time of their life reeling in all of the reds and puppy drum. They will have sore arms.... Read More
John Dongieux had such a good time last month fishing with me, that he was back today. His son Brennan joined us also. Our first stop found a slow incoming tide, then it went slack for hours. With only one fish in the K2 it was past time to move. Our next stop found a couple more fish but slow. Capt Rob was on a hot bite and called me over. Upon pulling up The Chick-Fil-A crew with Capt Rob.... Read More
May not be right place for this but I am looking to get a 12in X 12in piece of 1/8in aluminum and one bend put into it. Anyone know of any aluminum fabrication businesses in the New Orleans area. Thanks in advance.
Running a 17 foot skeeter bass boat with a 115 on it. Looking for a good place where I can get inshore quick and get on a couple reds. Is this enough boat for the Delacroix area? Any suggestions on where to launch and where to head?

My husband spend a lot of time in and around the waters of Grand Isle. We enjoy just about every aspect of the island...notice I said 'just about'. We aren't the big crabbers or shrimpers, but we do like to play around with it, especially when we have the 6 y/o who absolutely loves the water. Last weekend we decided to catch a few crabs to boil at the camp. How fun to put your traps out.... Read More
Tom, Shannon,and Jules with Chick-fil-A joined me today on the Bluewave. Slack tide seemed to be a common theme today as it seemed like everywhere we went the tide was switching and at some spots it never picked up and stayed slack. First stop was a great example. We sat and waited for tide to start moving all the while picking ups some reds and drum along with a freshwater cat. Once the tide.... Read More
Always good to take out father and son combos. Ernest Woodard and his 11yrs. old son Scott came down to Dularge. They weren't particular on what to catch they just wanted to catch. With the winds up it was all reds today. We took off in the Bluewave at day break. We fished a couple spots picking at them. Capt. Marty and I were working the teamwork and he was on a better bite so I headed his.... Read More
