Beautiful day in the water today if you could hide from the wind! Lol.
On board was Rudy from Saritas Mexican Grill, his 2 sons and Jacob. We took a late start this morning sense it was after 1 am when they arrived at The Reel Inn last night. With the late start and 2 young boys on their first trip we decided to go straight to hunting Sheepsheads and turn this into a teaching trip for the....  Read More

Two beautiful but, tough fishing days in Dularge. Water temps and conditions getting better everyday. Keep the western factor out of the wind and keep the Atchafalaya River where it belongs!
Friday was Mike Neil and his buddies on board. Trout bite was very so I gave the option to go for meat but, elected to continue trying for trout ans I'm always good with that!. We ended up with a few....  Read More

Absolutely the best trout action I have ever seen! Even better than any summer morning! A four man limit in a very short time both days, 100 in one hour Friday. Matrix Shrimp Creole and Green Hornet both under cork and tight lined. The bite is very light and you need a good sensitive Rod and Fins Braid to detect the bite, once you get the feel for it you're on your way to a box full! Even....  Read More

Here is a few pictures Capt. Marty didn't have for his report.
Changing conditions! We fished Dularge 3 days in a row with 3 totally different conditions. Wind changes, temperature change, before and after storms and fronts and caught fish everyday! Fished 3 different location adjusting for conditions, that a perfect example of fish the conditions, not the spots! Also change techniques to....  Read More

Jan 8 & 9 has been 2 incredible days of trout fishing! Friday no one wanted to fish so I went solo, and even after a fog delay I still limited by 7:25 am! When I got to the dock there was 2 people wanted to go after seeing that report. Loaded them up and went back out and they added another 35 trout to my 25 and still back in for 1 pm.
Today, Saturday. Storms rocked the trailer all night....  Read More

Another good Saturday in Dularge! A pleasure to have Nick Ferrara of Ferrara Firearms back on the Bluewave along with his buddy Jarred! It was a one stop shop today, love it when the water temp drops and the nicer trout move into the marsh holes, let the wind blow! I'm calling our 67 trout a limit, with only 8 trout left to catch and still biting we got googaned worst than ever before! There....  Read More

So proud of my crew today for not giving up! Pulled away from the Reel Inn this morning with Brad Denson and his buddies Jeff and Peter on board with winds already blowing 15-20 mph knowing it would be tough. I realized at the first stop I needed to throw my plan out and start over. We tried hiding from the wind but, with the warmer water tempts the trout backed out of the marsh se we had to....  Read More

This more a safety issue, not fishing report. Up until now boaters used a light at all it was a hand help spot light and you would never point it at an oncoming boat. Now everyone is using high powered light bars to light up the world in front of them and not realizing what it does to oncoming boats until it happens to you. Way worst than someone not dimming lights on the road. I encountered it....  Read More

I haven't been keeping up with daily reports, I'll try doing weekly reports?
Last week, Thanks Giving week was hit and miss with most of the time dealing with very high east winds some days over 30mph! Up with the lower water temps there was enough fish in the marsh to manage some decent catches of trout, reds and sheepshead. Then Friday night I woke during the night to silence, no wind....  Read More

I will now be available to guide full time and stop disappearing for a month. No more starting over every other....  Read More

Another successful trip for Jambalaya Trade Group members. I know it will be tough when the wind rattling the boat sheds wakes me before the alarm clock does! Paul The Bug Man brought along some tough fishermen, Al, Tim and G. With none of us prepared the cold wind this morning we took off hoping the sun would warm us soon. Lol
I headed straight to where we left the trout biting yesterday....  Read More

October Trout are here!

It's always a good day when Dr. Gray Bailey is back on board the Blue Wave with another group. When we planned this trip we planned to be fishing reds and drum and he was good with that but when we met up this morning in howling winds I told if he didn't mind I'd like to try to get some trout first and he said lets do it! With 20 - 30 mph winds it was risky....  Read More

Thursday was the most fun I ever had not catching trout! Lol. I had Mississippi River, Capt. Van Billiot and his deck hand, soon to be Capt. Chip on board the Bluewave. We started out on my daily check in the trout, catching a few more everyday, shrimp are jumping, trout will be on them any day! But in Dularge, even when the trout or making their transition from off shore to insure there is....  Read More

I haven't been on here much, been a busy drag pulling week in Dularge! Trout or not inside yet but, very close, we are catching a few more everyday but, we are still having a blast and hauling in the meat! Plenty of Redsfush, rats to Bulls. When winds are calm we are having fun sight casting Matrix and spoons in the shallows, doesn't get any more fun than that! If it's blowing we are fishing....  Read More

Bass trip? Lol. That's what we had planned but, like we said before plans are not really made till you head down the bayou and look at conditions. Dickie, Leonard and Zack jumped on the Blue Wave this morning with rods rigged for bass fishing and we still not sure what happened but, the boat went south out of habit and found ourselves on the trout grounds.
It was big trout coming in right....  Read More

  • Mr. Red says good morning.
  • John's very first Speckled Trout
  • Nice!
Father and son day on the Du today. The Blue Wave left the the Reel Inn this morning with Gray and his son Lil Gray, Jason and his son John on board for some catching. First stop at the famous Dularge boat parking lot found a Bull Red and way too many sharks! Made a move and found what we wanted and stayed put. No fast 2 at a time action but, a steady bite of nice trout, no throw backs.

Nick Ferrara of Ferrara Firearms in Baton Rouge got some of his buddies together for a fishing trip in Dularge. They Enjoyed great crabs and crawfish at Jugs Seafood last night after arriving. We pulled out of the Reel Inn this morning around 6 after watching the boat parade head out! Lol
The trout grounds looked like a boat parking lot when we got there. The plan for today was to find a....  Read More

Dropped the trolling motor moved maybe 20 feet, caught the first trout, Power Pole down and didn't move again till....  Read More

  • Conditions were perfect to let the Blue Wave air it out some!
  • Not fishermen but catchermen! Lol
Absolutely a beautiful day on the water! Yes there was a few thunderstorms around this morning but, they all missed us. Calm and clear Gulf waters had the trout hungry. Not a fast and furious bite today but, steady got it done. The day was way too pretty and we was having too much fun for it to end early. We were done for 11:30, plenty fish and the heat was turning on.
Big thanks to Dickie....  Read More

  • 50 more caught after this picture.
What a day! Nice weather and fishing is just stupid!! My Arkansas crew had an incredible day of fishing! We got our limit of 125 speckled trout plus 150 white trout! I guess I should have never told them there was no limit on white trout. Lol we was back at the dock cleaning 275 fish by 11am.
We brought live shrimp again and dumped them again. Double rigged plastics done the damage. Also....  Read More

Another incredible morning of slamming quality trout! Abner, David, Josh and myself on board the Catchdat Blue Wave was greeted with a beautiful sun rise over the coast this morning and calm seas for a quick ride out to the trout waters. We arrived and Abner put the first trout in the boat on his first cast! The action was steady but not fast and furious then came to a halt at around 8 am with....  Read More
