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

Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana

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

Ethan Koobs and his FiancÚ Kim jumped on the big Bluewave with me. We departed at 7:45am as Ethan worked the night before (he's a die hard fisherman!!). We started in the lake over reefs finding schools of small fish 10-11 inches with only a few keeper trout mixed in. Moving into the bayous we found keeper trout, but not enough to even talk about. All of our trout and one red were caught....  Read More

Coach Greg Briggs and Coach Fuzzy Kemp from Live Oak High School joined me today. Our first two spots found a on and off trout bite with a few reds mixed in. Every time it looked as if the bite was getting hot, it went cold!! We worked over the reefs finding fish at every stop, but it seems the fish are still scattered about. We switched gears to soaking a few shrimp to top off the trout....  Read More

Ryan Falsetta with Turner Industries joined us today with a eight man crew. We were not sure if the trip was going to happen or not due to the weather forecast. The guys were die hards and we made the decision at 4am to go for it. Things looked promising at our first location. Calm winds, clean water, and a falling tide. We got on a quick run of trout and a big red, then it was pick pick....  Read More

Jason Pourciau with Sherman Williams and his customer Chris Maggio jumped on the big Bluewave today. Our first few stops found a slow bite. We picked away at some bass, a red and one lonely trout. We made a move finding trout almost every cast, but most were small only adding ten keepers. One more stop and we struck silver. It was non stop action as we had the silver trout hitting the K2....  Read More

Will & Jayne Jenkins, Drew Major, and Natalie Gunn jumped onboard the Big Bluewave today. Our first stop found trout, bass, and a lonesome red. We moved around looking for a better bite and found it at our last stop. The bass were stacked up, then we pecked away catching trout. Natalie (from Chicago originally) had never held a fishing pole before today!! Natalie ended up catching 3 bass....  Read More

Byron Lewis, Josh Easley, and Matt Goodman jumped on the Big Bluewave with me today. Another slow bite today picking away at the specks. We never got on a hot bite as it was one to five here and there. The specks seem to be scattered out even though water temps have been in the upper 50's all week. We moved North to look for the green trout, but ended up only picking away at them today. No....  Read More

Jarrod Whitehead, Wade, Tad, and Ray Richard joined me today on the big Bluewave. Our trout bite started off slow again this morning, so we moved North deep in the Marsh and found the green trout stacked up again. Fishing the grass lines with Green Hornet Matrix Shad rigged on 1/4 Golden Eye Jig Head, we busted the bass. We had them coming in every cast at one point. Once we had our fifty....  Read More

Jeremy James, Jimmy Rushing, and Kathy Rushing joined me today!! We departed the lodge at daylight and were greeted with strong winds and a rough lake!! Our first stop produced three fish in six cast, things were looking good (then we couldn't buy a bite..LOL). Drifted a ways and had four more bites producing two more fish (time to move). Our next stop struck silver, as the specks were....  Read More

Day 2 helping out Capt T Miller. After a few hours of sleep, we were back at it again!!!! We found no bite at our first two stops except for about 10,000 gnats. Thank goodness for Swamp-Swatter onboard the big Bluewave. Our third spot looked to be the charm but the bite ended up shutting down. Two more moves and it looked like it was going to be on again. Trout coming in one after....  Read More
