Well, a little late reporting on Friday and Saturday.
Mike Downing burned up some air miles and came down from Kentucky for his first taste of Dularge. Started off right with a little bit of crawfish when he arrived Thursday. Sense I am waiting on my new Bluewave we put 'Catch Dat Too' in service Friday morning and had to sort thru a few issues sense Terry has been using the Prodrive rig.... 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

We got late start due the the bayou being fogged in, the people who left early got out before the fog set.... 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

While normal kids are looking under the tree this morning mine.... Read More

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

That's why I love this time of year, now all the way till spring. It can rain, fronts can come thru, wind can blow and fish can still be caught!

Just got a report from Terry on 'Catch Dat Too!' .
Yesterday Capt Marty and Capt Travis proved you can catch in Dularge before, during and right after a front, Terry smoked em today on the day after the front! So when the fish move in to the DU none of those excuses work!

They caught today on top water, Coco Pepper under a cork, double rigged Coco Pepper and HTL Jr Purple Tiger.... Read More

Here goes another useless guide report with no free information in it! LOL

On board the Bluewave today was ME! I didn't see any good reports, didn't get any secret information nor did I ask for any. It's been 6 weeks sense I fished! I know the redfish are everywhere but, I wanted trout! So off I went alone on my mission.

Well, it was a lot better than I expected. Started out.... Read More

I have one person on Saturday and he is willing to split the trip to save money. So there it is, anybody want to split with him and everybody saves? One or two more would be perfect, low cost for everyone and not crowded. Call, text or email me ASAP!

Man, it sure is boring on here without many guide reports! LOL

Yea the kids are back in school and everyone’s life just got busy and not much time for weekday fishing trips. Yea, everyone knows this is the slower time for trout but, the redfish are just crazy right now!! Nothing wrong with getting a limit of reds and play catch and release till your arm falls off. Or go looking for a few.... Read More
