I helped Capt. Marty with Coach Rodney's crew Monday and Tuesday. The first day was supposed to be the most weather friendly so we headed south to the trout grounds. It didn't take long for the wind and waves to grow large enough for us to say no thanks. With a dozen trout on ice we headed north to battle the bulls. Whole cracked crab had the the big fish feeding and dragging some serious....  Read More

Kirk Johnson was back on the Bluewave this morning. He brought his wife Joie and friends Stephanie and Andre. The first 15-20 minutes seemed like we were going to have a tough day then the light switch turned on and it was doubles as fast as my crew could sling them in and then light switch off. Another 15 or so minutes went by without a bite then the school came back and it was hammer time....  Read More

It was Day 2 with the Texas boys. Yesterday we had tough conditions but we knew that it would be better than today so we pushed south for some trout. Today we woke up to a big question mark. It rained all night and the radar had scattered storms all around. After talking it over, everyone wanted to fish regardless of conditions so we left the Reel Inn around 8 in search of the big boys. A quick....  Read More

They all can't be great and today was a good example of that. I helped out Capt. Marty with a bunch of guys that came in from Lufkin, TX. It's a 2 day trip and winds were supposed to be manageable for some trout so that was the goal. The wind forecast was off and we got beat up pretty good. We hid early but once the wind shifted more out of the east there wasn't any place to hides We grinded....  Read More

Wes Hedges and his wife with Southern Craft Brewery in Baton Rouge had his mom and dad in town from Arkansas to do some fishing. They had never caught trout or reds so today was a first for them and after a little lesson they were good to go. The bite took abut 30 good minutes after we pulled up to get going. It was like an explosion of life with shrimp running for their lives while trout and....  Read More

It was day 2 with BISSO Marine. The north wind made the ride out pretty easy and we started where we caught the most trout yesterday. At daybreak we caught a quick 10 or so then nothing. I trolled around looking for the school but it was a Saturday and they were off. Plenty of boats around today with the nice weather. We got lucky to have some big shrimp start popping close to us with birds dive....  Read More

BISSO Marine was back down south. After last week's trips it was going to be hard to beat but I think we did it. We started slow but ended with a bang. We caught 5 hammers at our first stop on double rigged Matrix in Shrimp Creole and Avocado but that was it. Made a little move and caught a few then got sidetracked with some birds. Had to chase them down and said not worth it. One more move and....  Read More

Pat Miller and crew came in for some trout fishing. I was concerned about water quality in Dularge so I ran east and it seemed to be a good move. I stopped off at the Tracy-Macie for some live shrimp. We hit a shallow reef to start finding nice trout but a slow bite. There were schools of mullet not to far away so I trolled that way and the solid specks were right in the mix. The guys put a good....  Read More

Well the calm winds didn't last long. Matt Summers and crew Justin and Lott couldn't reschedule and wanted to do go fishing regardless of the wind. We had a couple of choices since Tracie Macie was in the Boca. We decided to buy insurance just in case the wind got too bad. It didn't take long to realize the wind wasn't going to calm down and was going to be a challenge. We hid the best we....  Read More

Day 2 with BISSO Marine was even better than the first. We got an early start but not as early as many. Think 10 boats rolled out before us. Luckily not all were going to the same place. Beautiful weather made for a fast and furious bite which was good because Eric likes it that way. Shrimp, birds, and trout were everywhere and it all was perfect because finally the weather cooperated. The Xi5....  Read More

It's that time of year again, BISSO Marine came down and after watching the forecast we decided a midday departure and fish the afternoon would be our best bet for a trout slam. We gambled with the forecast and we won. Water had patches that were clean and patches that were dirty. The fish didn't seem to mind. We actually caught our biggest trout in dirty water in about a 1ft deep but most of....  Read More

Another windy morning forecasted. George Marretta brought down 2 of his buddies just to enjoy being on the water. With the north wind we headed north to protected water. No birds were to be seen so I stopped on a reef. We made a few casts and the first flock of birds showed up so we were off. That was the name of the game for the first few hours. The birds and trout were skittish leaving as soon....  Read More

Otis Taylor and gang were back in DU after numerous reschedules. Winds were high but the guys wanted to go. High winds made for a bunny ride out but the Bluewave took it like a champ. We started our morning of looking for trout. We hit a few flocks of birds and a couple points catching a bunch of throwbacks with a some keepers mixed in. We kept at if for a while before the wind got too much to....  Read More

Lon Randall and his wife Blythe came in and stayed at the Reel Inn. Forecast was for 7-9kts but the wind was up over 15 early so I wasn't sure how good the fishing would be. We found a couple birds diving on a point so I drifted in and it was fish on. Lon and Blythe put the hammer down and never looked back. Working our double rigged Matrix by bouncing them off the bottom they had singles and....  Read More

It's was day 2 with our 5 boat charter with the guys from up north. We left out the Reel Inn early to pick up live shrimp. Jason joined Todd and Kenneth today. The north wind had the reef we wanted to fish dirty but we tried it anyways since we were there. I Power poled down in about 5 ft of water and on his first two casts Jason hooked up with a keeper trout so it was looking good. Seemed like....  Read More

Doyle Gaston and Todd Smith brought a big group down from West Monroe to get in on some trout fishing. The forecast was little off with the amount of wind we got but it wasn't too bad. Todd and Kenneth jumped on the Bluewave with me. The birds really didn't fly much so we had to stick with fishing reefs and points. Fortunately we didn't need the birds. We found a bunch of mullet and some....  Read More

It's been a tough April with all the bad weather. I got the new BW and had to cancel 5 straight trips. Luckily the weather calmed down just a little today for Jeremiah's crew to slime up the new boat. The SE wind blew but compared to what we have had lately it was just a puff of air. Water was a little dingy but with the high waters we've been having the water hung in there even with all the....  Read More

Earl and Bob were back on the Bluewave. Forecast showed low winds and gradually growing thru the day. We had a slight breeze at daybreak and we found trout in hot pursuit of shrimp. We put the double rigs to use and a bit surprising the trout were decent size with many more keepers than throwbacks. We caught multiple doubles using a bounce type retrieval. The trout would hit them on the fall. By....  Read More

After a few cancellation last week due to high winds we were back at it. Tyler Baker and crew came down to get some fishing in on a rare day off. We were greeted with perfect conditions. So perfect we had to spray a little Swamp Swatter to keep the gnats off early. But when the fish are biting better than the gnats you know it's going to be great day. We started off with a good start catching....  Read More

It was a busy morning down at the Reel Inn. Cajun Industries were back down with a large group of guys. At their request Shawn P cooked up some steaks and cheesy potatoes and finished them off with some bread pudding. The guys were up early ready to jump on the Bluewaves for a trout smack down. We had 5 boats running and we all spread out. I started on a reef in about 3ft of water chunking....  Read More

Don and his wife made the long trip from Oklahoma to experience trout fishing for the first time. They told me about a grumpy charter captain in Texas they experienced only catching one red fish with so I liked our chances of them having a great trip. We left out the Reel Inn at day break planning on hitting a reef but we got side tracked with some birds. Should've just went to the reef because....  Read More

John Dickinson was back on the Bluewave along with his boys. The forecast was calling for stout winds early and decreasing as the day went on. We decided to get a late start around 9. We found the winds whipping as we headed out. We ducked into the marsh just trying to hide from the wind. We ran up on some birds chasing shrimp in a flat near some deep water. The guys put 20 on ice quick before....  Read More

The weather was the issue this weekend. Luckily our crew were good sports. Yesterday by 9:30ish the sky fell and we had to take cover at a camp for a while and when we had a window we ran. Since the guys didn't get much fishing time, later in the afternoon we were able to get the guys a few more hours of catching. Last night the front worked its way south and the rain was fierce but was gone in....  Read More

I helped Capt. Marty out today with a 4 boat charter. This time of year conditions dictate everything. We had a calm morning before the storm and the trout were grouped up real nice on a reef with a current line running thru it. We had birds flying around and as tempting as it was we stuck the Powerpole and only moved when the sky fell. The fish were decent sized with only a few throwbacks. We....  Read More

I was back at it today with Rick Davison's crew. The water dropped about a foot but was still very clean. Yesterday we fished points, cuts, and reefs and we learned that the trout are not holding on the reefs yet and were constantly on the move. Many were eating shrimp which was a great sight to see. Today we mainly fished points with tide lines. It was a mix between Tightline and under corks.....  Read More
