Day two with Cajun Industries staying at the Reel Inn. Windier conditions and a strong incoming tide made the fishing tough. We still found clean water and tons of mullet where we caught yesterday, but the trout wanted nothing to do with us. The search began and we just pecked away at the trout. A lonely red and flounder found their way into the Big Bluewave also. Not sure if the fish....  Read More

We fished a big group with Cajun Industries out of the Reel Inn today. Great day busting up the trout and some reds. The trout were on fire today and the guys had a blast reeling them in. Once the K2 was full, we went chase a few reds. Drifted one bank hooking into six reds. It was like the icing on the cake!! The guys loved every second of reeling in all the fish. Green Hornet Matrix Shad....  Read More

  • Happy Birthday
Jerry Fowler Sr. was onboard today with his sons Mike and Jerry Jr celebrating his 74th birthday. Our first stop found a slow bite, we made a short move and it was on. Every cast almost as soon as the Green Hornet Matrix Shad hit the water. We reeled in fish steady for over a hour before the bite slowed down. We made a few more moves with no luck then called it a day at 11:00. Great time....  Read More

We had a big group stay at the lodge last night celebrating a bachelor party. The guys met us down at the dock at daybreak. We loaded up all the Blue-waves and were off looking for trout. Our first stop only found a few fish willing to bite. Our second stop found the 'Silver'. The trout were stacked up and in a feeding frenzy. It was every-cast as soon as the baits hit the water. My....  Read More

I had the pleasure of fishing with David White today (owner of Arctic Ice) and Jared Serigne (Producer of Louisiana Sportsman TV). We filmed another show for Louisiana Sportsman TV. If you have not tried out Arctic Ice, your missing out. Incredible products that keeps your fish box cooler and ice last longer, and completely eliminates the need for ice in your drink and food box's. Our....  Read More

I had the pleasure of fishing with Sammy and Becky Marcel. After smoking the Reds Friday we figured we would repeat, but the Reds had other plans!!! They were extremely finicky and didn't want to bite like the day before. We could see their wakes and would watch them follow the baits and short strike them but refused to eat. We did however trick a handful into taking the Matrix Shad. They....  Read More

I helped out Capt Gerald Ellender today with a five boat group. We found the Reds stacked like sardines, and loaded the Bluewave down quickly. Multiple double hookups, a quick limit, and very happy customers!! I called the other boats over and the party began!! Every boat limited out and we left them biting. Incredible day to say the least. Matrix and Vortex Shad busted the Reds like they....  Read More

Barry Batsin with MMR joined us with a crew for his bachelor party. We knew the conditions would be tough with the 30 mph winds. Soaking shrimp on the bottom was the plan to load up the box, then drift the marsh to see if we could catch some reds. Both plans worked, as the guys reeled in fish all morning!!! Once the K2 was pretty full, we hit the ponds and started drifting. With the water so....  Read More

Toby Rich with Whitliejo Specialty was back with me today , Mickey & Herbert Turner, and Kerry LaCoste with Bull Dog Services also joined us. Our first stop only found a few trout, so we didn't stay long. Stop #2 found what we were looking for!! A slow but steady trout bite on Green Hornet Matrix Shad with 1/4 oz jig head. The trout were scattered so drifting worked best. The guys....  Read More

Jeremy James was back onboard the Bluewave today with Chris & Tanner McGee. Lots of running today to find fish. Plenty reds in the shallows, but we couldn't get to them in our big boats. No problem, just had to change strategies!! We found reds, trout, puppy drum fishing the green hornet matrix shad. A slow retrieve with a twitch was key for the trout. Thanks guys for a great day.....  Read More

Robert and Angela Stalnaker from North Carolina joined me today. This nice couple are down on vacation trying to get in all that South Louisiana has to offer!! It was their first time in the marsh and they were excited to see all the birds, wildlife, and catch some fish. The couple doesn't eat fish, so it was mainly catch n release. We departed at day break to find a strong falling tide and....  Read More

Another great day today bashing the reds. After my customers cancelled last minute yesterday, I found one customer that wanted to jump aboard with me on short notice. We caught our limit of reds with no problem, then we went searching for trout. Only one lonely trout was found, but we continued to catch and release reds. The reds are piled up and you can't keep them off your line. Green....  Read More

Petey Kern, Roy Landry, Brian Landry, and JJ 'Cocodrie Kid' Jacobs. We slept in again today and left at 8am. One stop shop again today putting together a limit of reds. We also added two lonely specks to the K2. Purple Haze Vortex and Green Hornet Matrix Shad slowly retrieved continues to get the job done. Great time today fishing with these guys, and I look forward to their return this....  Read More

David Thibodaux was back onboard the Big Bluewave today with Jake Gray. One stop redfish slam again today as they are stacked up like sardines. Purple Haze Vortex and Green Hornet Matrix Shad rigged on a 1/4 oz Golden eye or David's Custom Tackle jig head is all you need!! Slow retrieve dragging the bottom and wait for the hit. We have been fishing in 3-5 ft depths. The guys quickly filled....  Read More

Day 2 with Paul & Kerry Ringiewicz and Cory & Rachel Fry was even better than day one!! It was a slow start with no tide movement, but once the tide started moving....BAM!! We could not keep the reds off the line!! Over 100 reds hit the Big Bluewave, keeping our 25 fish cooled down in the K2 cooler. Green Hornet, Shrimp Creole, and Purple Haze Matrix/Vortex Shad lures produced....  Read More

Day one with Paul Ringiewicz from Philadelphia and crew was fabulous! We slept in late and did not leave the dock till around 10am. Second cast on arriving on location had a nice bronze back coming over the gunnel of the Big Bluewave. One after another the bronze backs filled up the K2. Matrix and Vortex Shad lures rigged on a 1/4 oz Golden Eye jig head or a David's Custom Tackle jig head....  Read More

Franco Cardinal and crew joined me on the big Bluewave. We report the good and the bad always, today was horrible! Everything looked good condition wise. Calm winds, clean water, and a good tide. Stop after stop after stop we kept coming up with no bites. We didn't skunk, but with as few fish as we caught covering 140 miles of water burning 35 gallons of gas it felt like it. I can't....  Read More

Scott Ducote and his son joined me on the Big Bluewave. We knew the odds were stacked against us but Scott is moving to Houston and this was his last chance to fish. Our second stop found a slow bite, but steady. All the trout were nice and did not have to be measured. A real nice bass hit the K2 also. No big numbers, but ended up with a gallon of fillets!! Green Hornet tight-lined slowly....  Read More

Jordan Parnell, James Brown, and Chris Peters jumped onto the Gator Tail ready to shoot some ducks. Arriving in our pond, we found no water (thank goodness the Gator Tail doesn't need water to get the job done)!!! Out went the decoys in the mud, and we got set up in the blind. It didn't take long for the first few ducks to hit the mud, LOL!! We had groups of 2-3 birds fly in all morning.....  Read More

Dick Blaise was back onboard the big Bluewave today. His good friend Charles Alexander from North Carolina also joined us. Our first stop had trout coming in the boat every cast on Matrix Shad under a cork (color didn't matter). The only problem was all the fish were 10-11 inches. Out of 60 plus fish 8 made the K2. It was fun catching, but you can't eat the small ones!!! Our second stop....  Read More
