  • Brad's big one
  • 43' brute for Jeremy
  • Jason's red fish
Brad, Jeremy, and Jason came down from the north and wanted in on the great bull red fishing. WE were a little unsure of the bite today when leaving the dock because of the cooler temperatures and the low water. When we got to the honey hole the tide was rolling in very hard and I was getting more worried about the bite. Well, as soon as the crab smell got in the water it was game on for about 3....  Read More

  • Monster Drum
Jordan Boudoe and gang came for a bull red trip but ended up with a bull red and drum slam. I started the day with 5 dozen crabs and we went through every one. That made 120 baits and I know that we caught close to 60 or 70 bulls today. Most fish weren't even put in the boat just released happy to fight another day. All these fish are along the coast in deep bayous and they are mixed drum and....  Read More

  • Crystal's big Red Fish.
Sal, Crystal, Penny and Ryan came down to catch some fish and they got real with it very quick. The first stop had birds diving on shrimp with trout chasing, oh what a sight. There was lots of small fish but we put 40 nice trout in the box before we got carried away by the gnats. We could have easily caught lots more but the bugs were so bad that we all agreed that it was too much. We left the....  Read More

Saturday morning just when I was getting ready to go to the Sportsman's Show I get a call from a great couple from Alabama. Don Stout and his wife Katherine wanted to go fishing. They were in New Orleans at the time so they came down and we got underway close to noon. First stop was a drain and we caught one undersize red fish, it was Katherine's very first red. Next stop was a well head and....  Read More

  • First redfish ever for Gabe.
  • largest red fish ever for Gabe.
  • Gabe with his first saltwater fish ever.
Quite a while ago my nephew Michael used to deckhand for me and as all young ambitious guys are he grew up and has a son of his own now named Gabe. Well it was time to take Gabe on his first saltwater fishing trip. After postponing it a couple of times due to weather I didn't have the heart to do it again because I was sick. So with a bad cough and stuffed head I took them on a trip. With the....  Read More

  • Silhouette shot of an early red fish.
The last two days were filled with red hot fishing with red hot guides. Don Somme' put a fishing group together for PSC and it was a great group of great fishermen. I don't think anyone had a hard time catching fish. The first day was cold but the reds were on the flats catching any sunlight they could to warm up. They also wanted to feed and we gave them something to eat. High Life Tackle....  Read More

Offshore Fishing in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
I am in need of a deck hand for this fishing season. If anyone wants to come aboard let me know and let me know your experience. Must have transportation to the Cocodrie/Dularge area. A Captain/deck hand would be great.

  • Double up on trout
  • Dock Shot
  • Ethan's first ever speckled trout.
John and Ethan came down from the cold north to test the fishing down in South Louisiana. They called me a couple of days ago and I told them things were tough but we could go give it hell anyway. They meet me at Falgout Canal Marina for 6:30 and we were off to the Lake. I thought things were going to be bad when I caught the first trout on the first cast. That's never a good thing. We drifted....  Read More

  • All nice trout today only not too many.
My good customer Gary called up just before Christmas day and asked to fish right after Christmas. So off we went and the first stop started off great with the second and forth cast producing trout and then nothing. Make a little move and it was the same thing a couple of trout and then nothing. Move around again and only found small reds and drum. Back to the lake and we put a few more trout in....  Read More

  • Steve McNemar is a great believer in the High Life Tackle Swimmer Gold Tiger color.
Just got this report from Steve McNemar saying not only do the trout love the HLT Swimmer right now but the bass are tearing it up. If you don't know by now the Dularge area is on fire with trout. HLT Swimmer JR. in Bunker or Glow should be outlawed. they are killing the fish.

  • Kenneth showing off his redfish.
  • Day 2 group shot. Lots of fish getting caught right now so come give it a try.
I ran a couple of days out of Cocodrie for Top Water and it was game on from the start each day. The cold weather had the reds stacked up in deep holes so that make for easy pickings with either dead shrimp or Black/Gold Ripple shad from Berkley. Under a cork or tight lined didn't make a difference on the catch. The reds made it easy to find them as they were blowing up the pot belly minnows on....  Read More

Paul, Matt, and Bambi wanted to catch some trout so I met them at the camp in Four Point and off we went in the wind looking for trout. I was on a mission to get to the same spot my team won the rodeo the last weekend but the trout kept popping up everywhere. This delayed me a little and the high winds and dirty water didn't help either. The good thing about all of this is that the Berkley....  Read More

Matt with his girl friend Alisa came and did a number on the trout post front Saturday. High winds and low water didn't stop the trout from biting. It was almost a one stop shop for the trout as I think we only fished 2 spots for them. Berkley rattle shrimp did the number on the trout with cracked crab getting the drum and red. I started out fishing trout and when Alisa got tired I said I would....  Read More

Kevin Flannagan and family came down for a little catching and man did they do a number on the fish. They put 35 mangroves in the box and had a great time learning the tricks and then putting the fish in. Ms Norm as I called Sheila because she caught most all the fish and the cobia. It was just normal for her to have a fish on most all the time. After the mangrove s and not wanting to catch....  Read More

Scott Corley and gang came down to enjoy a little fishing and catching. I think they got their wish. First off was a little mangrove fishing and we put in 34 groves before we decided to go after the big fish. The amberjacks were biting but the prize of the day was a 29.5 pound Scamp that would have been around 3rd in the state records had we put it in. The mangroves are still thick but getting....  Read More
