Farewell to the fishing grounds that have produced so many fish for all that frequented this incredible area. I sure hope the artificial reefs that are being talked about, really happen. I will believe it when I see it.

Day 2 with James, David, and Kera Wheeler had us targeting reds. As soon as the Big Bluewave stopped and the PowerPole was deployed...BAM, It was red fish on!! Gold spoons was the ticket today. We doubled up quickly, then several singles hit the spoons. We put 7 reds in the K2 in less than 20 minutes (by 7am), then the switch turned off. It was stick and move the rest of the day picking at.... Read More

James Wheeler was back onboard the big Bluewave today with his Son and daughter in law. We knew the trout bite was slow in the morning, but we had to give it a try (gotta go to know). Stained water and a ripping current at our first two stops produced a goose egg. We found better water at our third stop and the current wasn't running 20mph!!!! Second cast produced a big fat trout!! We.... Read More

The Reel Inn Dularge was rocking last night, as the guys with INOLECT partied it up!! The guys got the party going after Chef Shawn P grilled up some steaks and his special mashed potatoes!! Today had us back in the marsh, as my Florida guys only wanted reds again!! We got off to a quick start with four nice reds meeting their maker into the K2. Gold spoons, Purple Haze Vortex Shad, and.... Read More

My INOLECT crew came into the Reel Inn Thursday night. Chef Shawn P cooked up his famous crawfish etoufee. Food/drinks and good times by all. We woke up and had breakfast then headed out after day break. My crew from Florida wanted reds, we arrived on location where I left them

Biting every cast yesterday, thinking it would be a easy repeat.....NOT. The reds were there and stacked, but.... Read More

  • Purple Haze Vortex Shad is bad to the bone
It was good having Kenny Siears back onboard today. Kade Siears and David Stafford also joined us. We found the reds stacked up at our first stop. We had multiple double hook ups. Once our limit was iced down in the K2, the guys played catch and release. We headed South after the guys had enough to go look for trout. The trout did not cooperate like the reds did, but we managed to pick away at.... Read More

  • The new Vortex Shad colors.  Don't leave the dock without them!!
Day 2 with ESI had us waiting for a storm to pass before we could head out. We had three boats trout fishing and one boat that targeted reds. We were greeted with choppy seas and stained water. Second cast had a nice trout breaking the ice in the K2, then not another bite. We started moving around and found a slow bite. We had quality trout coming on our double rigged avocado Matrix Shad and.... Read More

  • Doubled up red action
  • Easy trout limits
  • 280 trout for the crew
ESI arrived at The Reel Inn Dularge Sunday night and were treated to a boiled seafood dinner prepared by Chef Rickie Daigle. After breakfast we had four boats head out in search of the bronze backs. All boats found a slower than usual bite, but still managed a box mixed with reds, puppy drum, bass, and a few lost trout. We made it back for a weigh in of a five fish red stringer, cleaned fish,.... Read More

  • The smile sums it up!
After cancelling all of our boats the last two days due to weather, we thought today's forecast looked better. Lance Trotti and family were back with me today on the Big Bluewave. We were delayed at the lodge due to storms. Once things cleared out we were on our way. Our first stop found a few reds and puppy drum. Our second stop had us reeling in a few bass. The tide was almost at a.... Read More

Allen Moore with Wells Fargo Financial brought in a group to Reel Inn Dularge Wednesday evening. Chef Shawn P cooked them up a great dinner, and everyone went to bed happy. We departed just before daybreak and found the big yellow mouths waiting on us!!! It was every cast on the double rigged Matrix Shad, as everyone was slinging in the big trout 18-21 inches 1-2 at a time. Avocado, Green.... Read More

Day two with John Dongieux, his wife, and my son joined us. The Gulf was full of storms this morning, so plan B it was. Our first stop had us at the redfish hole, but no reds willing to bite. Straight to the Bass hole the Bluewave went!! As soon as the Power Pole was deployed it was 'Bass On'!!! Five bass hit the K2 and another 5 -10 were lucky to see another day. We moved less than ten.... Read More

John Dongieux and his wife joined me today from Mississippi. We were greeted with calm seas and clean water. With only five fish iced down in the K2, a storm kicked up. We had to make a decision on where to run! Turns out we made the right call. Seas kicked up and got ugly but we skirted around the storm. After arriving at our location, John caught a trout. It was game on afterwards!!! The.... Read More

Day 2 of the Fourchon Oilmans and my guys were pumped up to catch a bunch of fish on top waters. We headed out to a area we caught the most yesterday, but found only a shark to bite. Our next ten stops all produced goose eggs, things weren't looking good. We kept moving and finally dirtied up the K2 with a fish!! A few more joined in around the same area. After combing the area it was time.... Read More

Erik Burns and his sons joined me today. The morning started out a lil windy with choppy seas and a ripping current. We got set up and started chipping away at the trout. Double rigged avocado and green hornet Matrix Shad worked their magic as they do everyday in Dularge. With the current so strong we used 3/8 ounce jig heads to get the baits down to the fish. Letting the baits drift with a.... Read More

  • Matrix Shad, gets it done every day
After a well needed vacation with family it was time to get back to business!!!! Danny (Black Cloud!!) Lirette was back on the big Bluewave again today with his good friend Jerry Roth. We were greeted with wind, choppy seas, stained water, and storms building all around us (I refused to let the weather beat us!!). We got on location and hunkered down!! Keeping a close eye on the storms while.... Read More

Day 1 with Bisso Marine at the Fourchon Oilmans went well, all five boats caught fish. We fished reefs, surf, and structure today. My crew mainly wanted to target bigger fish on top water. We did use some Live shrimp under a cork when it got slow. Matrix Shad double rigged produced some fish also at one structure. The guys caught some real nice trout and it was exciting watching the fish blow.... Read More

I had the Camp Greasy Prop/Whitley Jo Specialty crew back onboard the Big Bluewave for one of their annual night trips. Blake Foley, Chad Viator, Josh 'Ace' Hebert, and Aaron Stanfield got to experience the best trout trip if their lives!! We had the ice broken before the sun went down!! Double rigged Matrix Shad in Shrimp Creole and green hornet worked best, with a steady retrieve. Solid.... Read More

  • Shark bait
Logan Fowler was back onboard with his buddies Logan Breaux and Victor Allain. Storms had the gulf covered this morning so we had to stay inside and wait for a while. Once the radar cleared we were off to the trout grounds. A little chop to the seas but nothing like it has been. The Bluewave sliced the waves like butter!! Our first and second stop found a slow bite. Our third stop struck.... Read More

Dan Brooks and crew joined me today. We were greeted with 17-20 mph winds and rough seas this morning. Dead set on trout the Bluewave headed South cutting the 2-3ft seas like butter. We found stained water but got on a short run and started to dirty up the K2. Tiger Matrix and Green Hornet double rigged work best. The bite was short lived and had us on the move. Our next few stops produced.... Read More

Ben & Tim winter were back onboard today and Chris Millen also joined us. We decided to stick with the reds today knowing the water would not have cleared up over night. We made the right decision, according to the reports I heard out of Dularge. Our bite started slow with no tide movement. Once the tide started moving the fish started to bite. Our first few reds came on Tiger and Green.... Read More
