Robert and his family were in town for other business and had time for a short fishing trip Saturday morning. Well sense Mom made the call I think she just wanted to get rid of them for a few hours? I been on a crazy redfish bite for the last 2 weeks that you could set your watch to so I told her we could provide them with all the fun they could handle.

They met me at the Reel Inn at 8 am....  Read More

I had Eric Holland back on board the Blue Wave today and this time he brought his nephew along. The plan was to go after trout first then come in for reds. The gulf was slick and clear with a slight breeze from the north, perfect conditions! Well we managed to catch 15 trout where I caught an easy limit yesterday, same story everywhere we went slow? Well it was time to go in for reds.

We....  Read More

Well, woke up this morning with the thunder louder than my alarm and saw a text from my charter that they were not coming due to the weather. I fully supported the decision, I was happy to stay in bed for a couple more hours. Got up and drank a pot of coffee and the weather cleared up so why not take a ride? I left the camp at 9:30 to go see if the reds were still where we caught them last....  Read More

Great trip today with great people. Had Shane, his dad Ken, Chad and Dawn on the Blue Wave today. The plan was to go for trout today but, if they didn't want to play we wouldn't waste time all day on them, we would switch gears and go for reds. Well that's exactly what happened, trout didn't want to participate so we headed inshore in search of reds. Well, that wasn't working out well....  Read More

  • Andrew caught the biggest and nastiest of all the drum!
  • Steven with his first Bull Red
  • Proud Dad with some hungry and tired boys!
Today I had Marco and his 2 sons Andrew and Steven on board for some father and sons bonding and fun times. The wind finally gave us a break and aloud us to head offshore in search of trout. The water was still a little dirty but clearing as the day went on. We found trout at almost every stop but, not a fast enough bite to keep the boys busy. After a quick discussion with dad we agreed it's....  Read More

The 2014 Pure Bay is fully rigged and in action!

I had David Basso (Poppy) and his grand daughter Analiese on board the Blue Wave today. With 18 mph winds this morning, even though we maybe could have caught trout offshore, it just wasn't the right thing to do with a youngster on her first trip so we stayed inside for some drag pulling fun.

David layed in to a Bull Red on his first....  Read More

  • Speedeaux Custom Rods
Ok, I'll get ready to be attracted! This is not an add, just passing on a great find. Catchdat does not sell this product although we would love to cause it will be big!

I'm always searching for something new, I found this guy in south Mississippi, Speedeaux Custom Rods, building custom rods starting at $80! Ok, didn't sound right but, I gave him a shot and ordered a spinning rod....  Read More

  • Miss Mary with her nice red for the grill!
To great spring time days on the water. Sunday I had the pleasure of having nice couple, Mary and Roy on board the Purebay. The bite was slow but we put together enough trout for a fish fry and Miss Mary had a blast with her 8 pound redfish. Along with that was a couple smaller reds and a sheep on plastic. This was Mr Roy's second trip with me and can't wait for the next one. And he....  Read More

Well it was good to be back on water. Launched the Bluewave early this morning excited about getting on some trout. My Mississippi crew was up and waiting on the dock at Jug's, got loaded and on our way.

Well it didn't go as good as I anticipated but, we didn't give up easy. Can't find a good excuse? Yea, the wind was blowing, so what, caught fish in more wind than that, the fish are in....  Read More

Well the morning started out kinda weird, the ski got real dark after daybreak then it just blew away?

Had good friend Capt Rob Dupont , Mr Roy from Prairieville and his buddy (forgot his name), on board the Bluewave this morning for what we thought would be a redfish trip. Reds were still there and biting but, the big trout wanted to play also. The trout and reds were both on the bottom....  Read More

I didn' fish today but, my son Terry did and I usually post for him.

He left out of Jugs Landing this morning in his Prodrive rig with my brother Randy on board. They fished deep in the marsh south of Jugs, mostly dead end canals and intersections. HLT Swim baits were their choice but I'm sure other plastics worked well also, no live bait or stink bait needed. Very slow retrieve and very....  Read More

  • Jason & Boo with 75 trout and a Bass.
What an awesome morning on the water! Stepped out of the camp early this morning and was greeted by clear skies and light winds, got the boat in the water and waited for my crew to arrive knowing it was going to be a good day!

Left the dock around 6 am with Jason (BURNHACK) Koenig and Boo Simoneaux on board the Bluewave for a short chilly ride to the fishing hole. Pulled up, dropped the....  Read More

Well after smoking the trout yesterday we were up early this morning ready to do it again but, before we finished our coffee the rains moved in hard! We still had hopes of waiting out a shower and taking off but it rained and rained.

Finally around 2 pm it cleared up enough and Leonard Adkins and I headed out for a quick afternoon trip. We headed straight to where we busted the trout but,....  Read More
