What a hell of a day. The forecast was for rough with small craft warnings. The one think that most of the captains I talked to this morning was that if we could get to the back of the island we could catch some fish. Well I beat Capt Chris to the spot that we had been fishing for the last couple of days and I didn't want to step on his spot and was worried that I had parked too close to his....  Read More

Sonny and Kathy Lovell had been trying to get on board and catch some trout and the weather had stopped us a couple of times. Well we didn't let it stop us today. We ducked in behind Last Island and watched some trout get caught while we picked away at a few. Chris was in the right spot and was hammering them. When they slowed down a little I decided to run to one of the other spots that had....  Read More

Jamie called late Sunday evening and asked if I happen to be open on Monday. After I said yes they were on their way to one of the best trout fishing days they had ever had. Max, Brody, and Brady crowded the front of the boat shouldering each other for position to catch the largest trout. We did start at one point and were catching when Capt Chris called and said they were hammering some big....  Read More

Capt Elton Rodrigue and I didn't have anyone that wanted in on this great fishing so on this slick calm day we decided to do some scouting. Not much scouting done cause we found the big girls stacked up. We put 35 in by 7 and that bite died. No problem I took him to a secret spot and we left them biting every cast. Live shrimp for me and Berkley rattle shrimp for Capt Elton. Capt E have me hell....  Read More

Nathan Boone along with Katie, Derek and Jana came down and wanted to catch some of the fish they have been seeing us catch. Well without a boat right now I got Capt Elton to run his and we got all loaded up with live shrimp and took off to the spot Capt Brady and I caught fish yesterday. Oops too late, the other guys got there first. Capt E gave me that look like what now and I said no worries.....  Read More

After the big blow this week and with charters looming on Saturday Capt Brady Giroir and I decided to go scouting to find some fish for our guys to catch. We left the dock very early and shopped around in very rough conditions for about an hour with nothing to show for it. We came around a corner and saw Capt Rob Dupont?s brand new sea foam colored boat. He had his guys on the trout. Another....  Read More

Jordon and gang came down last year and smacked the red fish so this year they wanted to do the same thing. Well the weather wasn't the best but we did manage to catch enough big fish to make a great day. Jennifer caught her biggest fish ever, Johnny caught his very first red fish ever and everyone was happy as could be. There is nothing better than having happy customers and especially....  Read More

I had 3 very good friends that I went to school with from 1st to 12 grade on the boat today that wanted to remain anonymous so I will not give out their ID. After about a 30 to 45 minute learning curve to know how to use fishing equipment they were off to the races and pulling trout in the boat as fast as they could toss out a live shrimp. Big thanks to Samantha Sevin at Bait House Seafood for....  Read More

The weather forecast for Saturday was not a good one but Chet Stogner and gang wanted to fish anyway and wanted trout. I told them it was going to be a tough day but we would catch some if we could get to them. Cocodrie has a lot of open water to cross so it was a guessing game till we hit the bay in the morning and decided to give it a try. After getting the boat set up and the guys with the....  Read More

My very good friend Jimmy Gravois was in a bad boating accident and is in the hospital. He will be fine but is busted up pretty bad. Please send some prayers his way. Its hard to think he was fishing with me having a great time the day before.

The trout continue to bite really well even with the high winds today. When I pulled up to a spot today it was covered with birds diving on shrimp being chased up by the marauding trout. Every cast was a trout for about 20 minutes until one of the big aluminum charter boats with twins from cococdrie came and went right over the trout to try and get in better position to catch. We had 31 trout in....  Read More

My good friends Jimmy and Tammy Watkins came out today looking for a few trout. Well that didn't happen so good, we didn't get just a few. Tammy told me she was good with just one trout but more is OK. On the very first cast of the day both Tammy and Jimmy hooked up with nice trout and they never let up till number 75 hit the deck. One stop shopping today and we didn't....  Read More

Its an old saying in fishing that if you want to catch fish you have to match the hatch. Yesterday while filming Casting Cajun with Tony Fontenot we were on the trout and this shrimp came out of a trout we caught. Next to it is the Berkley Rattle Shrimp in Coastal Candy color. It was one of the only baits that caught larger fish this day. Tony had all of his rods rigged with that other plastic....  Read More

While getting bait one morning at Bait House Seafood I met Troy Lodge looking for some suggestions on where to fish. I gave him some insight on where to go and handed him my business card after he asked for it. A couple of weeks later I get a call from Troy wanting to book a trip and thanking me for putting him on the fish. They had absolutely killed the sheepshead 2 trips in a row. He booked a....  Read More

Did a little trout fishing yesterday with Kevin Ford shooting Louisiana Outdoor Adventures TV and the mission was accomplished. We found hungry trout out of Cocodrie and left them biting at 10 so producer Joey could get back for more photo business. It was a picture perfect trout fishing day with calm winds, hungry trout and clear water. The trout are here, hungry and waiting for you. Get with....  Read More

What a great way to end a string of good fishing days. Rusty Pittman and Gilbert Youngblood took a break from work up in Donaldsonville and came down to Cocodrie to get in on the great fishing we are having this early in the season. From almost the first cast the trout were coming in the boat fast and furious with some really nice ones. At one point I had to put a new tail on Rusty's....  Read More

The wind this weekend nearly ended the plans for catching trout on Friday for Bruce, Deema Neagle‚Äč and Eddie Robichaux. At first the forecast showed calm weather but that went south real fast. We started at the spot for the trout but only found a few that wanted to bite so we took the long ride south to get on some reds and it was the bite of the century for them. Plastic, shrimp under a cork....  Read More

Anyone want to go try your luck on the big trout Friday or Saturday. I'm open and the days are looking great. Anywhere from 1 to 4 people at $125 per person. If you want the boat for yourself book the whole boat (4 people) or just join in with anyone else that calls. Capt. Tommy Pellegrin 985-851-3304

Took a little scouting trip by myself today. I had heard about some big fish on a reef in the lake down Dularge so I braved the fog (very cautiously) to get out. I waited till 9 to leave the house hoping the fog would lift before I got down the bayou. That was a negative I only had about 1/4 mile visibility but it was enough. The first cast was a blank but the next 3 produced fish, then nothing....  Read More

Justin Langlois along with Josh and Aaron Josh Norton, came down for some great winter time fish catching. Knowing that the trout were not biting super till a little later in the day we opted to try for a bull red for little Aaron to catch. Well the first strike was not alone because we had a triple with redfish. Then after a couple more reds and a few drum it was time to get on the trout.....  Read More

Michael Cenac took his son Gabe on a Christmas fishing trip to remember. There is nothing like the joy of watching a young boy totally enjoy fishing. Days like this transform his life from the games to the outdoors forever. If you have some kids that want to get into this kind of fun give me a call. I will do everything possible to get them to enjoy the outdoors. The fish are biting pretty good....  Read More

I may be a little late with this but what a weekend of fishing we had. It started off on Friday with my good friends Brendan and Ashley Botts of Gulf States Taxidermy. The reds had been biting real good so I called them in to get in on the great action. Things started fast with a couple of bulls reds hitting the trout baits and Ashley handled them with easy and a little screaming. These were the....  Read More

Itís been a while sense I posted but it doesnít mean I havenít been fishing. Although I have been in the deer woods a lot. I got a beautiful 10 point with my crossbow opening day and a doe the next day. Now that I have a couple of deer to process itís time for fishing. As you should know October is one of the best months to fish and the fish got the message. The trout have shown up but are still....  Read More
