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

  • 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

Well this just what I needed after being trapped at work for 6 weeks! Cave my buddy Leonard a call, I knew he needed a break from the crab boat and crawfish boat.
We jumped an the Blue Wave about 6:30 this morning and off to the trout waters. The first 2 spots we checked was nothing. Pulled up at the third spot at 8:00 and BAM, 50 trout by 9:00 and heading in. That sure felt good!

This never happens, the guys where at the dock 45 minutes early this morning calling me! So I get the Bluewave in the water right quick and Randy, Mohammad and Abbas jump onboard and off we go in the dark. We arrived at one of yesterday's trout spots and waited on the sun but, when the sun showed up the trout never did turn on? Tried a few more trout spots picking up a few throw backs, I guess....  Read More

Another Catchdat Thanks Giving Morning!!

Terry seems to have a tradition of a quick limit every Thanks Giving morning, I just received his report and the tradition continues.
Terry and Mr. Robin took off in the Gator Tail rig this morning and busted 50 trout by 7 am! They played catch and release with another 30 or 40 and left them biting. Man, do I wish I was there!
His report....  Read More

I had Tom, Bob and Cody from Texas on board the Blue Wave for Friday and Saturday. Friday I didn't take pictures but, the guys fished hard, never gave up and need up with 48 speckled trout in the K2.

  • Aunt Norma getting in on the action
  • Regina reeling them in
  • Pops with a very nice trout
I think a report means more when it comes from the customer, I copied this from Shane's Facebook post.

'Rough day fishing in 20-25 mph winds. 43 very nice trout wasn't bad after all. Great day fishing with my dad, sister and Aunt Norma. Special thanks to Capt Elton Rodrigue for a great trip!'

I have to give credit to Shane Duplantis and his crew. They fished hard and it paid....  Read More

It was another fun Cowboys and Cajuns Redfish Rodeo, great weather this year! The hardest thing was the trout are in and hungry but it wasn't a trout rodeo, it's hard to pass up trout that you know are biting! The Reds and big nasty drum are fun also. No winning slot redfish on my boat but, our cowboy, Steve caught a 42' bull red! It took him a lot longer than 8 seconds though! And....  Read More

What a day! Leonard and Jake joined me on the Bluewave today for what was supposed to be a scouting trip. Yea right!
Well I can tell you it's official, the trout are all over the inside waters. We caught trout at every stop and left them biting at every stop to scout more areas. When we had 75 Specled Trout and a bunch of White Trout on ice the 'scouting' was over. All fish caught on....  Read More

Tough few days in Dularge, improving though.
No charters this week, just some scouting and fishing with old friends.
Sunday, reds were biting on cracked crab but we gave our crabs to another capt with a charter than ran out of bait and just went trout scouting. Did find a few trout in the lakes but not many yet.
Monday and Tuesday, high water levels, not sure why. The cracked crab....  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.

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
