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

Tom Evins and crew joined me April 8th. We started in the lakes and found no bird activity. Moved to some reefs and points and found zero fish. We tried the mouths of a couple bayous draining out and found one undersized fish. We moved into the marsh and threw plastic and bait shrimp and only caught a red and a few trout. After hours of fishing through prime area we moved back into the....  Read More

April 7th Mike Mladenik from Wisconsin was back onboard with me. We found a extremely slow bite and covered a lot of water. We found some pretty water, but the fish refused to bite. Our last stop found us reeling in trout every-cast for 45 minutes straight. Most of the fish were undersized so we didn't get to keep many, but it was fun reeling them in. Thanks Mike for the continued business.....  Read More

We departed from the Reel Inn at day break. Our first stop found one lonely Fish willing to sacrifice itself!!! We knew the water would be dirty but still wanted to see what would happen and defy....  Read More

George Horton and family joined me today on the Bluewave. We found the lake alive with shrimp jumping and birds flying everywhere in sight!! Plenty boats too!! Most of the flocks all had small fish under 12 inches. Our third stop found about ten keeper fish. We moved to a reef and boxed another 15. Made a drift picking away and got up to 30 plus fish when the bite and all bird activity....  Read More

After three hours of sleep we were back at it again on Tuesday morning!! My couple of two were originally from California but travel the country, it was their first time fishing here in South Louisiana. The winds picked up early and boats were everywhere like it would have been a Saturday. We avoided the crowds and went on a search. My goal was to get them on some trout, reds, and bull reds to....  Read More

Round two in the Gator Tail had us slinging arrows with Robert Dales crew. Our first location was slow, not seeing much. We made a move, and it was on. Fish after fish.....reds, sheephead, garfish, and drum all over the place. After shooting and missing quite a few fish, the 'fish Sticker' got on target!!! Look out fish!! Ended up being a great night even though the water was up a bit my....  Read More

Kevin Rousell and crew joined me Monday on the Bluewave. Slower start than we have been having as the winds were up and no feeding birds to be found. We started over a reef and got on a good run of fish, then the bite died. It was run and gun after that hitting reefs, and points. We picked away at the trout till noon then decided to go look for reds. In less than 20 yards we had hooked four....  Read More

I helped run a five boat charter out of the Reel Inn today. Two of my three man crew had never fished before. Wow, did they get spoiled on their first trip!! It didn't take long before the specks started hitting the deck of the big Bluewave. 25 keepers out of our first 100 fish, then we found a good mess of mostly keeper fish. Doubles and singles coming in one after another on doubled....  Read More

More new customers with me today and did they get a treat!! We made our way into the lake and was greeted with calmer than forecasted winds and seas. The birds were working shrimp all over. Our second flock of birds moved away, we all hooked up and the Power Pole was deployed. We sat in one spot for two straight hours catching every cast, we never moved!!! We must have caught 250 plus....  Read More

Tuesday I had some of my repeat customers back out with me. The water cleaned up a bit and the pressure was down a little. Birds were diving but it was a slow bite. We picked away then went check some other areas. We found some beautiful water and started slinging some fish in the boat. When this bite faded we went looking for more birds and it didn't take long! The trout were feeding....  Read More

I had a crew from out of state Monday afternoon that had never been to South Louisiana nor fished much before. We were greeted with slick calm seas and no wind to speak of. We ran around looking for birds then fished a couple reefs with no luck. Went to plan B soaking crabs for Bulls. We had a couple hook ups and misses then moved on. Fished the mouth of a bayou and found a couple trout under....  Read More

Day 2 with Jared and Porter Harden on the Bluewave. We knew we had a good four hour window before the rain came so we took advantage of it. We found a nice school of trout over a reef in 3 ft of water. We had the fish coming in almost every-cast for a good 20 minutes before they moved on. 7 yr old Porter is a fish catching machine, he was on fire!! Matrix Shad single or double rigged caught....  Read More

Jared Harden, Drew Carlin and crew fished with us Friday. The guys enjoyed their night at the lodge and we departed at day break. Jared and his 7 yr old son Porter fished with me. After hitting a few flocks of birds and boating a few fish a shower came over us. We decided to soak some crabs so Porter could catch a big fish. A storm was closing in on us and Porter was getting cold, so we....  Read More

Jack Legendre and Ernie Hansen joined me today in the Bluewave. We departed at day break from the lodge and came up with a scratch at our first stop. Second stop found a nice red pulling drag on the end of Jacks line, then a few trout! Our next stop only found a couple more fish, then we found the silver lining!! The K2 Cooler started to fill up. We did have to weed through some small trout, but....  Read More

Mitch Brien and family joined me on Sunday. We had no clue what we were in for when we left the dock. Our first two stops found crystal clear water, but not a bite. Third stop we got on a nice run. We boated about 20 specks keeping 12. Our next stop found us on a better bite boating around 24 fish and keeping 20. I thought this bite was going to keep going, but they just shut down....  Read More

The guys with INOLECT were back onboard with me today. After a enjoyable night at the Reel Inn, we departed after daybreak due to the fog. Our first stop found perfect conditions with a falling tide, but not a single fish. Our second stop found a few trout willing to bite our Limbo Slice and Tiger Matrix Shad. The fish were few and far between so we switched to plan B. We headed to a hole....  Read More
