We had a great 3 days of trout fishing on the Skeeter down in Grand Isle on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I was part of the annual INOLECT company fishing trip so I had to step away from my normal stomping grounds of Cocodrie/Dularge but for my first time ever fishing GI I think we made out pretty good , lots of small fish but I managed to put my crews on over 375 trout on our 3 day....

Today I Big Clay Nunnally and his boys back onboard but this time they convinced Mom to come along and see what all the talk was about from our last trip together. The pressure was on me after telling them on the boat ride south how great the last few days of fishing had been and I could see everyone was anxious to get a line in the water.
We pulled up at out first stop and we where all.... Read More
Today was all about putting the Kids on the fish and that's exactly what happened, we had a later than usual start but that didn't matter one bit. My first stop was gold, from the first cast it was 17-19inch trout coming in as fast as the kids could get the baits in the water. We caught about 50 solid trout then the bite slowed to a crawl so with the kids ready for some more line pulling we.... Read More
Leo and Al from Chicago where back onboard this morning and we switched gears today and went after speckled trout and it was a day to remember for these 2 brothers.
I hit my first spot at day break with not another boat in sight, set the power pole down and never moved until we had over 50 fish caught. The guys kept me running wide open from the bait well to the Yeti for a hour.... Read More
I had Gus with GUS Fabrication and Chuck and Jason from CUDD Well Service onboard the new Skeeter today and we put the smack down on the Redsfish in the ponds.
Our plan was to fish for trout but the high winds pushed into the ponds and it was a great choice, we had double and triple hook ups and we where all running around in circles trying not to tangle up all day long.
I had Leo and Al Pocios from Chicago onboard for another great day of fishing. We hit the water around 4pm to go searching for Redfish and it didn't take long as they where right where I left them on my morning charter, they where running smaller on our afternoon trip.
The guys are both experienced fisherman but had never caught a Redfish, well they can scratch that off there bucket list as.... Read More
We finally had some great weather for the Oilmans Rodeo and it really showed by the number of trout we brought to the cleaning table. We had over 700 fish cleaned for our customers from BRAND ENERGY and ADVANCED LOGISTICS and I think it's safe to say they all had a great time! The fishing was as good as it gets fishing the islands and well heads south of Cocodrie using double rigged Matrix.... Read More
My boys from MS sure know how to pick their days to come down to Dularge to fish , seems like they bring the lucky rabbit foot every time they come.
We had some wild and crazy action on the Skeeter today , on the first cast I had double 18inch trout and that was the story for the next 2 hours. We caught some of the nicest trout I've caught in months , almost all 75 fish looked like they came.... Read More
Day 3 with Intolect and I had Mike and Alec back onboard and we went back to slamming the trout again today. We started the day of early on the reefs picking up some real nice Trout and then we decided to make the run offshore , out first 3 stops only produced 2 fish but we found what we where looking at our last stop. We had 18-20inch fish coming in 2 at a time and the guys where having a.... Read More
Today was day 2 with the Intolect crew and with the windy conditions we decided to leave the trout alone and make it a Redfish day. Mike and Alec where on board today and they had a great time reeling in over 15 Reds, Alec had never caught a Redfish before today and he was amazed at just how hard they fight. We fished deep in the ponds and sight casted most of our fish so that was quite an.... Read More
Today it was as easy as it gets to fill the Yeti full of nice Fat Trout , Redfish and Flounder. I had Mike and Bryan with Intolect onboard and these guys where a blast to fish with, we had just as much fun laughing and cutting up as we did fishing all day.
All of our fish today where caught fishing the lakes with double rigged Matrix Shads and HLT swimmers in bunker color, Mike had never.... Read More

Sunday I had Dr. Hank Seigelson and his wife Kim from Atlanta onboard the Skeeter for a quick evening of trout fishing,We left the dock at 3pm dry and returned at 7pm wet but with nice box of trout so that made it all worth it. They where traveling through the area on a ' Cajun Culture tour' as they called it and trout fishing was on the TOP of the list for Dr. Hank, we loaded up with double.... Read More
Just when we thought the action in Dularge couldn't get any better it did, Day 2 of our trip was as easy as gets as we had over 75 fish hit the deck of the Skeeter before 8am. Everything today was caught on double rigged Matrix Shad and Shiney Hiney corks.
At our stop The fish where in a feeding frenzy just as daylight broke chasing shrimp and blowing up on the top of the water as far as.... Read More
It's hard to beat days like today , at our first stop we had nice fat trout coming in 2at a time on double rigged Matrix Shads. We thought we would finish our limits in no time but after about 20fish the bite went cold on us but after 2 more stops we had the cooler full with our 50 trout well before 10am.
We found most of our fish on the reefs but we did manage a couple of keepers under.... Read More
What a beautiful day to be out on the water,I left the Skeeter on the trailer today and I jumped in the boat with Earl and Aaron from Picayune MS and they sure picked the right day to go fishing. Our first stop we found birds working as far as we could see but the lake was full of 10-11' trout so we made a short move and hit the jackpot, we put the power pole down and before we knew it we had....

Today I fished with Earl and Aaron Julian from MS and the day started out slow again with no tide movement early, I don't think we put out first fish in the boat until after 8am. As soon as the tide started moving the light switch turned on and we where all hooking up with trout but once again it didn't last long, the story today was stick and move. We would stop and catch a few then the bite.... Read More
I had Scott Toups from Erath,LA onboard today to see if we could track down some trout and reds and that's just what we did, no limits today but we did put a good mess of trout and Reds in the box for Scott to bring back home with him.
We started catching trout within minutes of stopping at our first spot but it didn't last long , not much tide movement is what had the early bite slowed way.... Read More
Had a great day on the water with my son Blake today, we took advantage of a few hours of fishing before his appointment today.
We didn't have all day so we knew we had to make our time on the water count, Blake was sure aware of that because his first 3 cast he landed 2 keeper trout. We thought that we had hit the jackpot but that's was not the case, after 7 fish they shut down on us. We.... Read More
The trout action is finally back to 100% after Mother Nature has given us a short break from the cold temps and high winds.
We had no problem stuffing the cooler full of big beautiful trout today, we fished several locations in the marsh and every stop had clean moving water and hungry trout ready to eat up our Matrix Shads and HLT swim baits. Water temps are up in the 70deg range and.... Read More
