Good times today on the Bluewave with Al Reaux Jr, Nathan Reaux, Josh Champagne, and Matt Williams. The guys wasted no time this morning as soon as we pulled up!! The double rigged Matrix Shad went to work and 15-20 inch trout were flying over the gunnels!! A steady retrieve with a twitch had the fish in a frenzy. The bite was fast and furious, as every one in the boat was reeling in....  Read More

After rescheduling the past four days due to poor weather and fishing, I was able to get Steven & Nicholas Padgett, and Brett Brasseaux back on the Bluewave. I've had to reschedule these guys twice already also, but finally made it today. Solid trout today going 15-19 inches, and they were coming over the gunnels early this morning. Double rigged Matrix Shad/Vortex Shad is the only lures....  Read More

I had Gaiennie Lumber crew back today (three boats running), and Ray Savoy. All of our original plans went out the window this morning due to storms and the wind. Trout was our plan, as we have been catching easy limits every single day this week. Unfortunately we can't control the weather. We adapt and adjust to conditions and changed the game plan at day break. We had boats bass....  Read More

Ross Dies, Randy Elder, and Jolly Claxton from Shreveport joined me today on the Big Bluewave. We had the trout jumping into the boat every cast again this morning 4-8 at a time. Double rigged Matrix Shad gets the job done every day, don't waste your time and money on live bait!! The trout have been eating the Matrix up like there is no tomorrow (and there is no tomorrow for the 100 we....  Read More

Kenneth Shannon, Kevin Bishop, and Blake LaComb fished with me today. More of the same as the guys smashed the trout. Double rigged Matrix Shad is putting a hurt on the specks daily, as they can't get enough of them. No need to waste your money on live bait, just make sure you have some Matrix and Vortex Shad in your tackle box. As soon as we pulled up the specks were coming over the gunnels....  Read More

Day 2 with Dennis Lorio and crew was even better than day 1. We had the big girls coming over the gunnels 5-10 at a time on double rigged Matrix Shad. As soon as I stopped and deployed the Power Pole, it was fish on. No need to waste money on live bait when you have Matrix Shad in the boat. Easy as it gets today, as the conditions and fishing were perfect. These guys kept their streak of....  Read More

Dennis Lorio and crew were back onboard the big Bluewave today. Another exceptional fast and furious every-cast action day for them!! These guys have fished with me going on three years now and have limited out on every trip!! The trout were in a frenzy eating up our double rigged Matrix Shad. Color really didn't matter today as the fish ate up our baits as fast as they hit the water. ....  Read More

Day 2 with Inolect had us departing at day break again. We had trout coming in the boat at our first stop on double rigged Matrix Shad. The bite didn't last long, so we made a short move. We switched to live shrimp under a cork and slowly started filling up the K2 Cooler. Our next few stops we were back throwing Double rigged Matrix Shad. Our last stop found us on another decent run with....  Read More

My customers with Inolect made it into the Reel Inn Thursday night. Chef Shawn P LLC had a great meal prepared for everyone. We woke up early and departed for daybreak. At our first stop, we had trout coming in on the first cast! Double rigged Matrix Shad in Tiger Bait colors worked best for us. The bite was fast for only 15-20 minutes, then it shut down on us. The rest of the morning was....  Read More

We finished up day four with Claude Sims and crew from Texas. Another day of 30 mph winds made it tough. I wanted to get Carson on a Bull Red, but none were to be had. We shifted gears into the shallows and begun throwing Matrix Shad lures. It didn't take long and Carson was fighting a nice 25 inch red. We worked over the marsh catching 7 reds and a bass, the bite was slow. Stick and....  Read More

Day 3 with Claude and Carson Sims had us soaking crabs. 30 mph winds blowing so your options are limited. Big fish on the menu and big fish the guys got (and loved every minute of it). The guys loved the pull of the big fish and we kept a few of the smaller ones to eat. The guys are getting to experience every aspect of fishing we have to offer down here.

Big thanks to Capt T....  Read More

Day two with Claude and Carson Sims from Texas started out with some real bad storms and lighting strikes all around us at the lodge. We held tight and waited for the weather to pass. With the wind up, we decided to head North to catch bass and Reds. In no time the green trout were hitting the K2! Carson has always wanted to know what it would be like to fight a alligator!! Lol, well he....  Read More

Claude Sims from Texas was back onboard the big Bluewave with me today. Perfect forecast had us heading out to the trout grounds at day break! It's always a wonderful thing when you can hit the Gulf and are cruising at a easy 45mph in slick calm seas (You just know it's going to be a good day). At daybreak the trout were smacking shrimp 360 degrees around the boat. Double rigged Matrix Shad....  Read More

Day two with Scott Purdy and crew from Tennessee. I had the pleasure of having the 'Legend' fish on my Bluewave this day!! Our first stop found the birds diving on shrimp, and the trout hitting the deck!! Plenty undersized fish and keepers mixed together, every-cast action though. Capt Rob called over the radio about a hot bite he was on. Tough call as we were on a every-cast bite also,....  Read More

Scott Purdy from Memphis joined us today with a six man crew. Capt T Miller ran the second boat with the other half the crew. I decided to change things up today and fish another area.....wrong move. The fish didn't cooperate. We grinded away all day, but ended up putting together a good mess of fish considering how slow it was. I even broke down and had some of that 'live bait' stuff....  Read More

Herbie Borderlon and his wife joined me today on the big Bluewave. We had trout hitting the deck before the sun came up on Shrimp Creole Matrix Shad and Ultra Violet. The action slowed quickly and the Sharks moved in. We caught the most sharks that I've ever seen, it was time to make a move. Our next stop had the trout coming in on double rigged Matrix Shad, it looked like we were getting....  Read More

After a well needed week family vacation, it's back to business. Bisso Marine made it into the Lodge Thursday night. Chef Rick did his thing and everyone was happy. With calm conditions forecasted and so many people fishing in Dularge lately, we decided to make a night run Thursday. Everything looked promising, but the bluefish were the thickest I've ever seen them in all my 20yrs of....  Read More

Ladies trip today...Maryellen Chisholm, April McChesky, Laura Haden, and Leah Harris jumped on the Bluewave with me today. Slow pickings most of the morning, as the fish were not turned on like the last two days. We stayed patient picking away and the K2 filled up slowly. The ladies had a great time reeling in all the fish, as it was the most fish they have ever caught!! Double rigged....  Read More

Gaiennie Lumber crew was back with us today running three boats. The bite was fast and furious again today and my crew had the time of their lives. Double rigged Matrix Shad in Shrimp Creole, Tiger, Magneto, and Green Hornet put a hurt on the fish as they do everyday. The guys caught fish every cast and left them biting at 9am, it doesn't get any better. No need to waste your time and....  Read More

Micky Turner with Bulldog Services was back onboard the Bluewave today with Kerry Lacoste and their kids. We started the morning off catching reds. Quick start with multiple hook ups, then the bite went non existent. With slick calm conditions and zero wind I decided we should go look for trout! What a great call, as it was a one stop shop trout slam! It was on every cast 360 degrees....  Read More

Day two of the 2015 Houma Oilmans had the winds kicked up as usual!! With ten boats running we all headed out in hopes to repeat the previous day's smackdown. Unfortunately our first stop didn't produce. We made a short move and found shrimp jumping out the water with the specks in hot pursuit. Double rigged Matrix Shad went to work and the K2 started to look good. With a good mess in the....  Read More
