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

Call or text me at 225-715-2105 and I'll be waiting at the dock for you at 6 am Thursday....  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

  • Sunrise Bull Red
  • Cody with 2 nice trout.
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.
Saturday found us still fighting the barometer. Cody hooked a Bull Red right at day break that gave him all the fun he wanted on light tackle. Took pictures and released to fight another day.....  Read More

  • Ready!
It worked good last Thursday, figured why not try it again?
Anyone feeling brave enough to whip out the Man Card and go fishing tomorrow?
Give me a call, if I get 3 people I'm rolling! I was taking Thursday off but, this cool weather got me pumped to go!

  • 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

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
