Billy Gray and family were back onboard with me today on the big Bluewave. We knew we were faced with tough conditions, as the winds were pumping 25 mph first thing this morning. Our second stop had us reeling in nice trout up to 20 inches and a red. The lil ones had a blast reeling in most of the fish. They caught their first trout (20 inch's) and a really nice red. These two fish made the....  Read More

Ashley Levy joined me today for a incredible trout slam. Great weather equals great fishing!! As soon as the sun came up the trout were busting shrimp all around the boat. Our double rigged Matrix and Vortex Shad rigged on 1/4 oz Golden Eye jig heads had the trout in a frenzy eating up like there was no tomorrow. Things slowed a bit once the Saturday crowd of boats showed up. We had to move....  Read More

Danny Lirette, Ryan Duthu, and Father Craig were back onboard the big Bluewave today. Easy and good as it gets today, as the trout were basically jumping into the boat. The action was fast and furious as we had the fish coming in 4-8 at a time every cast. Double rigged Matrix Shad (green hornet) and Vortex Shad (purple haze, and shrimp cocktail) with a slow retrieve were irresistible. Our fish....  Read More

Day two fishing the Fourth Annual Cowboys and Cajuns Redfish Rodeo. We found a slower bite this morning at our first stop than yesterday. With a three red stringer of 20.6 pounds at 7:30 am, I wasn't satisfied. We took off and were on the hunt for a bigger red to put us over 21 pounds. We hit two deep holes then hit the shallow water throwing spoons and Vortex Shad on gold spinners. We added....  Read More

Day one of the Fourth Annual Cowboys and Cajuns Redfish Rodeo found us reeling in reds every cast this morning!! It was fish on from the start with double hook ups one after another. The Shimano reels got a work out today as the reds were pigs!!! The guys had a blast and the big reds gave their arms a workout!! Once the K2 was stuffed with reds we switched gears to trout. Only a few trout....  Read More

Day two with Daniel Louque and crew started out looking bad with 25-30 mph winds. I went to check a new area we haven't fished yet, but only found dirty water. We made a move and found cleaner water and right away started picking at the fish under corks with Shrimp Cocktail Vortex Shad and Purple Haze Vortex Shad. After the bite played out we ran and checked another area and found birds....  Read More

The radar looked nasty this morning with the front coming through! After the worst of the storms passed we were on our way. Our target was trout but none were to be found. We switched gears to reds, after hitting a few holes we found a few reds willing to bite. We got a call from Capt Miller and Capt Barr that they had found some trout willing to bite. On our way we went! (Great team work....  Read More

  • Trout for everyone!!
Day two with Patrick Spell and crew from Shreveport. We decided to target trout this morning, and it was the right call!! We found the trout stacked thick and they were hungry. It was two at a time every cast on the Matrix Shad and Vortex shad rigged on the Golden eye jig heads. As fast as the baits hit the water it was 'Fish On'. With 60 fish on ice by 8:30 the guys wanted to go and catch....  Read More

We switched gears to trout, and put a good lick on them. Double rigged Matrix and Vortex Shad....  Read More

Inolect guys made it into the lodge last night. Chef Shawn P cooked up some white beans and rice and fried shrimp. Food and drinks were flowing and everyone enjoyed the evening. We departed the lodge and arrived at the red hole after sunrise. The reds were hungry for our cracked crab Carolina rigged. Everyone had a great time. We made it back to the lodge before noon to eat Chef Shawn P's....  Read More

Gary McNeil with Prime Controls joined us today, with a crew of two boats running. With the high winds, we knew we had to stick to the reds. We hit the deep holes in Rice Bayou and Buck skin bayou, dropping cracked crabs on the bottom Carolina rigged. We had a short window with the tide but timed them just right. The guys had a blast reeling in the reds and a few 'Big Nasty' drum line....  Read More

  • A great sunrise
KBR Construction crew joined us for a day of fishing. The guys came from all over the United States to join us. My customers were dumbfounded upon witnessing the worst fishing etiquette from another boater they have ever seen in their life at our first stop. Needless to say we didn't stay there long before moving. Our second location found a few fish, and the guys loved how the fish fought.....  Read More

I had a big group today with DLSD Homes. The guys enjoyed their night at The Reel Inn and were up for the challenge today. We knew the wind was going to make conditions tough. We hunkered down and let the crabs do the work. 1 oz weights Carolina rigged with cracked crab is what the fish wanted. No fast and furious bite for anyone today, but all our boats put fish in the box. Customers had a....  Read More

Good times bow fishing Monday night and Wednesday night. High murky water made it tough to see the fish, as we never found clear water. No problem though, we still managed to hit some fish. Lots of laughs and good times were had and many arrows were released. Reds and Garfish were the main fish shot. Thanks guys for two great nights on the bayou.

We are booking 2-3 man bow fishing....  Read More

Good customer John Doucet put together a trip for Scott Harris, Glaston Lager, Richard Doucet. The guys arrived at The Reel Inn last night and loved the lodge. It was a redfish bonanza today. When the switch turned on it was every cast!! The Shimano rod/reels got a workout. Today's reds all averaged 23-26 inches. No fish over 27 inches today. Cracked crab was the bait of choice. Everyone....  Read More

Day 2 with Warren Higgins, Donnie Adams, and Benny Judice was even faster than day 1. The tide wasn't rolling as hard first things this morning, which made for a earlier bite. The reds were hungry eating up our fresh crabs. By 8:30 it was all over, as the K2 was stuffed. The guys had to get on the road back to Houston but not before we gave the trout a good 30 minutes to see of they would....  Read More

Warren Higgins from Texas was back again today with me. His buddies Donnie Adams, and Benny Judice also joined us. No problem catching our limit of reds by 9 this morning. Since it was so early we went top off the box with trout. No need to head straight in when it's so early and the trout are biting too!! We spent an hour and hit two schools of trout and then called it a day. Good as it....  Read More
