Day 2 with Coach Rodney Guin and crew had the trout coming in this morning on double rigged Matrix Shad. Slow retrieve over the oyster reefs with a little twitch of the rod tip. The guys had several doubles coming over the gunnels and plenty singles. Once our bite slowed, we made a move to another reef and it was fish on again. We had to weed through some small fish, but plenty solid 16 plus....  Read More

Coach Rodney Guin and crew are back with us for two days of fishing. The weather man had the forecast way off again today. We started off on a good run of trout on double rigged Matrix Shad, as they were busting shrimp all over the surface! We put a quick hit on them, before they quit. Unfortunately, the bite didn't last as long as we hoped and we were on the run. We picked away until the....  Read More

We knew it was going to be calm conditions today, and expected a good bite. The water was clean when we arrived on location and the trout were waiting on us. Double rigged Matrix Shad went to work, and the trout ate them up. Today's bite was a bit different than it has been. The fish would feed aggressive for a few minutes, then shut down completely. Then all of a sudden feed....  Read More

The catching continues with up to date reports!!! Day 2 with my five boat charter from Lufkin Texas. The weather was unpredictable this morning, and I thought we would have to cancel. I met up with the crew at the lodge at 7am, and everyone wanted to fish. We discussed the plan while looking at the radar and came up with a game plan. Bull reds with cracked crab was the plan. We departed at....  Read More

I had five boats out today with a big crew from Texas. Weather changed up on us big time and we had to adapt. We all loaded up with live shrimp this morning as insurance and headed to protected areas. The water was clean and green but the bite was slow. We got on a couple good runs on double rigged Matrix Shad, then the bite went dead. Not a single bite on live shrimp. We stuck out trout....  Read More

Derrick Glover and crew joined me today. We got on a hot bite at daybreak, as the shrimp and trout were busting the surface all around the boat. Double rigged Matrix Shad was doing its thing as always. Our bite went dead with 51 fish on ice around 8 am. We went pick up a few live shrimp when our fish shut down, and the LAWGS started to hit the box. We added another 30 trout, some puppy drum,....  Read More

Day 2 with Bisso Marine. After another great night at the lodge and Chef Ricks cooking, we all went to bed full. Being a Saturday we knew we had to leave early to beat the 100 boats going out. We got on location and found the bite to be slow. All of a sudden big shrimp started jumping next to the boat and the trout were eating them up, coming out the water chasing them. It was fish on!! The....  Read More

Bisso Marine was back in the lodge with us. Chef Rickie did his thing as usual and everyone went to bed happy. We got up early and made our way out to the fishing grounds. Second cast and it was fish on. After icing down 42 fish the bite was over. We made another quick move and it was fish on every cast again. We made short work and finished it off. Double rigged Matrix Shad as always....  Read More

Al Reaux and crew was back with me today. Our first stop was slower than I had expected. The water was stained and the bite was slow. The fish were spread out and the bite was sporadic. After putting 30 fish in the K2, we made a short move. We got on a quick bite, but most of the fish were 11 inches (time to go!!). After moving locations it was on!!! The big trout were schooled up and....  Read More

Day two with Tom Strange and crew from Texas was even better than day one!! We loaded the Bluewave with live shrimp again for insurance due to the high winds again. We started out over a reef in 3-4 ft of water only catching about 7 fish on shrimp. We saw a flock of birds in the distance diving like crazy, so we made a move. The double rigged Matrix Shad went to work and it was fish on....  Read More

Tom Strange and crew from Texas joined me on the Bluewave today. So much for the calm winds we had over the weekend!! We knew it was going to be a challenge with the high winds so we picked up some live shrimp. We tucked into protected water as good as we could and found clean water. The bite was much slower than I expected, even throwing live shrimp most of the day we caught the majority of....  Read More

Day 2 with my Bisso Marine Crew. After a great night at the lodge we woke up early, as the forecast was for calm winds. Being a Saturday and calm winds forecasted we knew everyone and their brothers would be on the water today. We got somewhat of a early start and made our way to the trout grounds. Second cast of the Morning and our first fish hit the deck of the big Bluewave about 5:50am. ....  Read More

BISSO Marine made it into the lodge last night. Chef Rick did his magic as always and everyone went to bed happy. The forecast had high winds in the morning calming down midday, so we decided to sleep in late and head out at noon. We were woken up by the smell of bacon around 7am!! Ate breakfast and took another nap!! After lunch we departed with calm winds. The pieces of the puzzle fell....  Read More

Day 2 with Joe Simpson and his daughter was another success. We started the morning off fishing for trout with double rigged Matrix Shad. The bite was slow, but we picked away at them. Around 9 we moved to the shallow waters and started throwing the Vortex Shad. The water was so clean we could see the reds when they would hit the baits. It was a gorgeous day to be on the water. Thanks guys....  Read More

Joe Simpson was back with me today with his daughter. Today was all about father/daughter quality time. High North winds had us limited on where we could fish. My goal was to get them on some specks and bull reds, mission accomplished. We found some birds diving on shrimp and had trout coming in 1-2 at a time for a short while. The schools were moving fast, so it was important to make as many....  Read More

30 mph plus winds yesterday had us Bull red fishing, conditions were brutal. The bite was kinda slow but my crew enjoyed being on the water regardless. The fish we caught were a bonus and they couldn't thank me enough for having such a good time. Crab on the bottom Carolina rigged and patience!! We tried one spot in the marsh for trout before getting run in by approaching storms. Thanks Capt....  Read More

Jacob Richard and crew joined me today. Brutal windy conditions made it tough. It looked as if we were going to get on them at our first stop, but the bite was short lived. It was stick and move the rest of the day. We worked hard and covered some water not finding any fish to cooperate. Got a call from Capt Josh that he was on a few fish, so we made a quick move and started catching too....  Read More

What a incredible day despite the forecast this morning. I helped Capt Josh with a three boat charter today. We really didn't know what to expect, but our crew smashed the trout!! No sooner than we pulled up and I dropped the Motorguide Xi5, we were Hooked up. It was fish on one after another on Matrix Shad double rigs. 1-2 at a time were coming into the big Bluewave. Big smiles on....  Read More

New customer Emile Leblanc and his wife Melinda joined me today. The bite has been hot the last few days. Wind picked back up, but the water was still pretty green. We started catching as soon as we pulled up at our first stop!! We thought it was on, but the bite didn't last long. After a couple moves we started catching again. The fish were real finicky and would bite in spurts. Majority....  Read More

Bryan Ritzheimer and crew were back with me today. It was the day we have all been waiting for. Slick calm seas and clean green water, I knew it was going to be on. We picked up some live shrimp as a back up plan and of course didn't need it!! We got on a early bite at our first stop putting 31 fish on ice. Our second stop found the motherload! The fish were feeding aggressive and hit....  Read More

Day two with our a North Louisiana crew had us leaving the lodge early. We arrived on location before the sun came up. North East wind was still blowing snd had the water choppy and dirty. Found a slow bite at our first couple stops using live shrimp and decided to flip a coin!! Stay and wait or head to where we caught yesterday. We took off and ran to where we caught yesterday to find the....  Read More

We had 9 boats fishing out of the Reel Inn this morning. I was helping Capt T out with a five boat group. We departed out the lodge at day break in no rush at all! We got on a decent bite at our first stop, then our bite came to a halt. After a short move we got on a fast and furious bite. The big trout were feeding on shrimp and smashing our double rigged Matrix Shad with Crappie Trout....  Read More

MMR had a big crew in town from Colorado that joined us on Friday. We knew the winds would be blowing, but we had to see what we could find. We started off over a reef in a protected area putting a few nice 16-18 inch trout on ice. We then saw some birds working some shrimp and that's when the fun began!! Double rigged and single rigged Matrix Shad went to work. The schools of fish moved....  Read More

I rescheduled my trout trip for Saturday knowing how the bite has been the last two days. I had a second group scheduled with some guys from Florida and they were ok with fishing for bull reds. We slept in late and left at 7:30. I got a call from a fellow Capt that they were catching a few trout, so we decided to check things out. No trout were to be found but a real nice flounder hit a....  Read More
