I helped out Capt Miller with a bachelor party group. We were greeted with slick calm seas and pulled up to trout busting shrimp on the surface. It was fish on as we had the big specks coming in two at a time on our double rigged Matrix Shad. Fast and furious bite as we boxed 80 fish before 8 am. The bite slowed a little and we picked away to 100 by 8:45. With no wind and it hot as hell my crew decided to roll to the dock, as some of them had not slept from the day before!!! Great time with these guys, thanks Capt T for setting up the trip.

Day one with Wesley, Kelley Carambat and kids. We had high hopes of the trout bite continuing like yesterday! We had a slight chop this morning but it wasn't bad at all. We got on a lil run of ten fish as soon as we pulled up, and thought it was going to be on! Well, it wasn't. We moved around just picking for a couple hours until we got run in from storms. We hit the shallows and broke out the spinner baits and spoons. We added four reds before the sky turned black and lighting started, so we rolled to the lodge for noonish. Great time as always with this crew. Big thanks to Capt T Miller for running the second boat and to Capt J Broussard for running Art Costly's crew.

Day two with the Carambat's had us trout fishing again. We found another slow bite at our first stop. We picked away at some decent fish until the bite played out. We made a move finding a few more fish before we made a move to fish for bull reds before coming in. We hooked one big nasty drum and one big bull red that the girls had a blast reeling In. A fun two days with this family again. Thanks to Capt T Miller for running the second boat and to Capt K Labat for taking out Art Costly's crew.

Gaiennie Lumber was back with us again. I decided to change things up and start somewhere else, well the fish didn't bite. We made several moves just catching a few fish at each stop. We finally got on one little run of fish then it was back to lock jaw. The guys called it a day at 11 and we headed in. Big thanks to Capt T Miller and Capt K Labat for running the other two boats with Gaiennie and Capt C Lombard and Capt C Dupre for running my Sparrows crew for the Fourchon Oilmans.

Steven and Monica Borel were back on the big Bluewave with me again. We headed out for trout and found bumpy seas and a slow bite. One of my crew got sea sick, so we headed into the marsh to fish for reds and green trout. We put a good mix together before they called it quits due to the heat. Always a fun time fishing with these two. Big thanks to Capt C Lombard and Capt K Labat for running the two boats with my Sparrows crew.

David Thibodaux was back on the big Bluewave with three customers. We decided to beat the heat and change up the slow hot grind. The plan worked out great as the trout responded and ate up our double rigged Matrix Shad. Love it when a plan comes together, we had a blast laughing and cutting up all night. Thanks again guys.

Fourth annual July 5th afternoon trip with Beau Boudreaux and his dad. We crushed the reds again and added some green trout again, four years in a row with the same exact results. Always a good time with these guys. Green Hornet Matrix and Purple Haze Vortex with gold spinners accounted for every fish.

I had one of my very good customers and his family back with me again today. We headed out for trout and found very clean water. First cast produced two beautiful 20 inch trout on #Matrix Shad, I thought it was going to be on fire! Turned out to be a slow steady bite of singles and doubles all 18-20 inch fish. By 9 am we were run off by high winds, rough seas, and thunder storms. We stopped in the marsh picking up three reds and three green trout before my crew called it a day. Always a pleasure fishing with this family. Big thanks to Capt K Labat for putting Richard Espinosa and wife on the trout also.

David Fishburn and sons were back with me today. We were greeted with slick calm seas this morning and thought it was going to be a Slam. Our first stop did not produce so we made a move and found the big girls in the 18-20 inch range. We picked away 1-2 at a time on our double rigged #Matrixshad as usual. We decided to look for a better bite but never found it. Once we returned there was no tide and we only picked up a few more before the storms ran us off. Good times with these guys again, thanks.

Davian Bayham and crew were with me once again on the big #bluewaveboats. We found a decent bite at our first stop slinging in some big singles and doubles. It looked as if we were going to fill up the box, then it happened! The switch turned off in the blink of the eye, lockjaw mode for the next couple hours. We moved and moved until we found them! We got on another good run midday and filled up the K2 with some nice 18-20 inch trout. Every fish as usual caught on double rigged Matrix/Vortex Shad. Green Hornet, avocado, and Purple Haze have been the top producers. Always a pleasure fishing with Davian and crew, thanks again.

Cy Primeaux with LSE crane and Transportation was back onboard today with two boats running. With the winds up again we stayed tucked away as best as possible. The green Trout and Reds didn't disappoint and even a couple lost silver fish made the box. Green Hornet Matrix with and without a spinner accounted for all of our fish. Great time with these guys and thanks to Capt Labat for running the second boat. Thanks also to Capt Broussard for taking care of John Eschete and crew.

Gaiennie Lumber crew were back with us again. Winds were even higher today, so we once again stayed protected. The green Trout and red bite were a lot slower, but we managed to get enough to make it a success. Big thanks to Capt's T Miller and K Labat for running the two other boats.

Terry McCabe and crew from Seattle were back with me again on the big Bluewave. For once we had calm winds and seas so we had to go take a look for trout. We found dingy water and only three Trout. After burning 25 gallons of fuel we took it North to redfish. Good plan, as we found the reds stacked up! My crew smacked the reds quickly putting the limit in the K2, as it was easy as it gets.

Ryley and Autumn Myhand joined me again today. We had high hopes of getting on the trout like their last trip. With winds blowing again and rough seas, the trout were extinct. Northbound it was again to the redfish grounds. Today it was a slow bite, but we got their limit of reds before they had to get back. Big thanks to Capt Broussard for taking care of Micky Masons crew.

Richard Gaiennie with Gaiennie lumber was back onboard with me with his son and a good customer from Oregon. We found a very slow bite all day. We soaked crabs and fished bait shrimp under a cork and threw some plastics. The fish never turned on. We grinded all day, thanks guys for sticking it out.

Another Gaiennie Lumber crew were with us with three boats. With the winds steadily blowing we grinded it out in the heat once again chasing reds. Never a fast paced bite all day, but each boat put a box together of reds and some puppy drum. Everyone went home with smiles and some fillets. Thanks again for the continued business. Thanks Capt's T Miller and K Labat for taking care of their crews.

Herbert Carriere and crew joined me on the big Bluewave. We targeted trout this morning and found a slow bite at each stop. The guys caught at every stop weeding through some small fish. With the heat kicking up and a mess of fish in the K2, the guys chose to take it to the dock. Big thanks to Capt's Labat & Lombard for taking care of Robert Utrera's crew and Capt Broussard for taking care of Art Costly and crew. Everyone had a decent mess of fish.

Petey Kern and crew were back with me once again looking for specks. It was somewhat of a repeat of the previous day. We picked away at the fish at each stop, getting on one fast run at one stop. No lights out bite or limits but we put a mess of fish together. Thanks again to Capt's Labat, Broussard, and Lombard for taking care of the same crews on day two. Everyone had a good time.

Gaiennie Lumber crew was back down once again with us. Trout was on the menu, and finally they decided to make an appearance!! Shrimp were busting all around us with the trout following them. Double rigged Matrix Shad went to work and the box filled up. Always a good time with these guys. Big thanks to Scotty Muller for the continued business over all the years. Thanks to Capt's Miller, Labat, and Lombard for running the other boats putting your crews on the fish. Couldn't do what we do without having the best Capt's in Dularge working with us.

Andy Brown and crew were back onboard again with me looking for trout. We started right where we left them the previous day, but the trout had other plans. The trout had lockjaw. After checking a couple areas, we decided to cut our losses and target reds the rest of the day. We found a slow redfish bite also, but ended up on a point with some steady hook ups. A mixture of keepers and throw backs which made it fun for the guys reeling in fish.

David Thibodaux was back with me with a customer. Windy conditions have us focusing on reds. We slept in and departed at 7am. We found a slow bite the entire day covering lots of water. All of our reds came on purple haze Vortex and green Hornet Matrix Shad.

Jack Selman and crew were back with me. Trout was on the menu and they didn't disappoint. It was lights out action as soon as we pulled up. The trout were tearing up our double rigged Matrix Shad every cast. #100 hit the K2 at 7:20. On our way in we stopped and drifted one bank and added a quick six reds before heading in. Great time fishing with these guys. Big thanks to Capt Lacour for taking care of Cody Lenert and family, they had a great time.

Gaiennie Lumber crew were back again. We started where we left them biting the day before, but the bite was way slower. We picked away all morning as they never turned on. All three boats put a mess of fish together and everyone was happy. Thanks to Capt Miller and Labat for running the other two boats. Thanks to Capt Lombard for taking care of my good customer Davian Bayham and his son and Capt Broussard for putting Ronald Bello's crew on the trout.

We started the day off trout fishing. We even picked up some live shrimp being the bite was slow yesterday, but all we caught on them were catfish. We stuck to the double rigged Matrix Shad picking away at a few trout. With the heat machine kicking in high gear we pointed the bow North and went catch a quick limit of reds and took it to the dock. Always a good time with these guys.

Doubled back on a afternoon trip with a group that wanted reds and we put the smack down on them. We started fishing at 4:30 and had our limit of 20 reds iced down at 4:45. Fast and furious every cast bite. My guys caught and released another 20-30 fish before we headed back to the dock. What a incredible experience for these guys.

Brad Smith and his son joined me on the Bluewave. I told them the trout bite had been slow the previous days, but they wanted to try. We were greeted with a lil chop and no bite. We made a move and picked away adding a handful before we decided to head North to bust up the reds. Once we arrived at the hot spot the guys started reeling in reds and missing a few. We moved a little and they got on a good run putting their limit in the boat. The sky turned black and the temperature dropped 20 degrees as a big storm approached us. We called it quits with 11 reds on ice and headed back in beating the rain. Big thanks to Capt Labat for taking care of Dennis Neil's crew.

Josh, Jason, and their dad from Kentucky joined me today. With the winds up I told them it would be a redfish day. The morning started off very slow picking away. We finally got on a good run getting up to 18 then the bite quit. One more short move and #20 hit the K2 cooler. Fresh bait shrimp under a cork has been the ticket. Another great day with these guys. Capt LB ran the second boat busting the reds also.

Day 2 with Josh, Jason, and their dad started off extremely slow! We stayed patient, very patient!! The fish never started to bite. We moved and covered some bank, but never were in the right place at the right time. We worked hard for just a handful of reds and a pup drum. Capt Lonnie knocked a limit out with his crew, as he was in the right places at the right time. Good two days hanging out with these guys again.

Vesco Rentals and Cardinal Services fished with us today. My boat focused on trout and Capt Lonnie's boat on reds. We found a great bite at daylight then picked away in spurts the remainder of the day. Capt Lonnie's crew whacked the reds catching a easy limit.

Vesco Rentals, Cardinal Services, Oilstates, and Sparrows joined us on Day two of the Oilmans. Myself and Capt Lonnie focused on trout finding a much slower bite then the day before. High winds and rough seas made it tough. Capt Travis and Kevin whacked the reds again as the reds have been easy to catch. Capt's Elton, Gerald, Jared and Casey fished out of Cocodrie and all had respectable catches of trout. Good times were had by everyone.

Day three with the same crews. All four boats in the Du focused on reds today. We all found a very slow bite in the morning. Two stayed near the honey hole waiting out the bite while two of us went on the search!! We hooked 7 before my crew threw in the towel. Two boats that waited it out both limited. All four boats in Cocodrie found a much slower bite today with the high winds, but all came in with respectable catches considering. Big thanks to the continued business from my customers over the years. Can't thank Capt's Travis, Lonnie, Kevin, Elton, Gerald, Jared, and Casey enough for the hard work they put in making all the customers happy. Great work guys.

Big thanks to Capt Labat for taking care of Robert Laville's crew today.

Good customers James Wheeler and Ben Ratcliff were back and brought their friend Ed. With the winds up we opted to stay in calm waters and catch reds. It was a good call as the reds were stacked up and waiting for us. As soon as we pulled up, the guys were hooked up and steady reeling in fish. #20 hit the deck by 8am. We left the reds biting to go bass fishing. We added 9 bass to the box, caught and released 7 more reds, and found a lonely lost speck. Always a good time with these guys. Thanks to Capt Casey for running the second boat with Robert Laville's crew.

Day two with James Wheeler, Ben Ratcliff and Ed. The morning started off a lot slower than our previous day. We picked away all morning on reds under the four horsemen corks with bait shrimp. Then the reds turned on and started eating up our #matrixshad green hornet. We left the reds biting, as it was as good as it gets.

We loaded up the boat to make a quick evening scout trip!! It turned out to be a quick Trout Slam! We found slick seas and hungry trout waiting for our double rigged Matrix Shad. Good times by all.

Coach Rodney Guin was back onboard the Bluewave with his crew. We were greeted with some wind and chop first thing in the morning, but the fish were biting. It wasn't a fast bite but steady enough to keep us interested. The seas calmed down and we continued to pick away at a nice box.

Day two with Coach Guin and crew found calm seas, we thought the morning bite would be on fire. Slow picking the first hour then the winds and seas picked up from a storm. We made a move for protection and found a decent bite of trout and some reds. We fished until the bite played out and my crew threw in the towel. Fun times always with Coach and crew. I look forward to his return in July.

Scotty Muller was back with Gaiennie lumber. We once again found calm seas with beautiful water, but no tide moving and the fish not biting. We made a move and started picking away at some
Decent fish. Patience was key and we just stayed drifting back and forth adding to the count until everyone had enough! Always a good time with this crew. Big thanks to Capt T Miller, K Labat for running the other two boats and Capt C Lombard for taking care of John Theriot and crew.

Good customer Al Reaux brought his grandsons back on another trip. Calm winds, seas and pretty green water and hungry fish at day break. The big trout were coming over the gunnels 1-2 at a time on our double rigged Matrix and Vortex Shad. It looked as if we were going to smoke em! Then the tide quit and the bite. Move after move only found 1 fish here and there. We fished long and hard and called it quits when the storms started brewing. We made it back just in time before the sky fell. Thanks to Capt J Broussard for taking care of Scott Moise and sons they had a solid catch.

The good ole trusty weatherman (NOT) had us canceling three days that we should not have. I caught up on some well needed rest, then took my two boys smoke the reds. The reds have been stacked up and easy to catch. Easy limits for my boys and great memories made.

Back to the grind as June is booked solid.

New customers Mark Maclean and Tim Balin from Texas joined me today focusing on trout. The trout never turned on hot and heavy, but we steadily picked away at some nice fish. We ended up with a nice mess of fish to make everyone happy. Fun day with these guys.

Day two with Mark and Tim had us back looking for trout, but with the wind machine blowing we switched to plan B quick. We found a point stacked with reds and they caught 15-20, lots of 15 1/2 inch reds in the mix. Two more stops and we had the limit with a few bonus fish. Great two days with these guys and they already rebooked in November!!

Good customer from California Rick Woolsey and family were back onboard the Bluewave. With winds up we opted to stay inside for reds. Well it was fast and furious action from the first to the last cast. My guys put 25 reds in the boat in less then a 100 yard stretch. Easy and as fast as it gets, as we were done before 9 am. Big thanks to Capt L Barr and Capt G Ellender for taking care of Buck Fields crew from Texas and Capt C Lombard for taking care of Tom Villien crew. Everyone smashed the reds.

Day two with Rick Woolsey and crew from California had us looking for trout! Well it didn't take us long to locate and smash them! Fast and furious every-cast action on double rigged Matrix Shad today. The big specks were flying over the gunnels one after another. Simply good as it gets with lots of big smiles. Two incredible days with these guys that have been fishing with me for over ten years. Thanks for the continued business over all these years.

Tyler Mcdaniel rescheduled from a year ago due to rain. Today we focused on trout again, we found the big girls stacked up and feeding on our double rigged Matrix and Vortex Shad. The whacking and stacking was fast n furious. We had our 125 iced down in the K2 just after 9am. Good as it gets as there is no need for any of that live bait stuff!!!! Had a blast crushing the fish with these guys and look forward to their return.

Good customer Joey 'Big Country' Hedrick was back onboard once again. Trout was on the menu, and they didn't disappoint. The feeding frenzy began early again on our double rigged #matrix snd #vortex Shad. Trout up to 21 inches were flying over the gunnels and our limit was iced down just after 8 am. The bite has been hot and heavy and everyone leaving with plenty filets. No place better to fish than South Louisiana!! Always a pleasure fishing with Joey and his crew over the last ten years. Thanks for the continued business.

Made a afternoon trip and were greeted with slick calm seas and clean water. Double rigged Matrix Shad went to work and the trout started filling up the K2. My son, his buddies, and their teacher had a blast smashing the specks. Great to see the excitement in all of their faces, id say the trip was a 100% success.

Gaiennie Lumber crew made it to the lodge and we had a great dinner prepared by chef Leonard. The crew wanted trout so that's what we targeted. Even with the winds blowing over 16 mph, we made it happen. Good times by everyone. Big thanks to Capt T Miller and Capt K Labat for running the other boats.

ControlWorx made it down to the camp. Everyone had a great evening and ate like kings, as chef Shawn P did it up again. My MMR crew were at their camp and had a great meal also. We had one boat go after trout and four boats target reds. My crew opted for reds and we found them stacked up in the shallows. My crew didn't waste anytime putting a big hurt on the slot reds. We iced down 23 reds and left them biting to go fish for bull reds. As soon as we pulled up we had two big bulls on the line. The guys were fishing a rodeo so we kept two big ones finishing out our limit. My crew took 2nd place bull red in the rodeo. Great time with these guys. Big thanks to Capt's Kevin, Jared, Chris, and Casey for running the other boats.

Brandon Beasley and crew had a blast smashing the specks on double rigged Matrix Shad today. We filled up the K2 Cooler, then went looking for a few reds before heading in since it was still early. We had three hook ups and two hit the ice. Great time with these guys, as we all had a blast.

Helped out my buddy Capt T Miller this afternoon. Winds and seas calmed down and the water was clean. Everything looked in our favor and we started catching!! Double rigged Matrix Shad as usual. The fish bit in spurts, as they never turned on hot and heavy. We put a good box together then headed in to clean fish before it got dark. Thanks T for putting the trip together.

Helped out Capt Rob with the BUMs fishing crew today. Forecast was windy so we stayed inside protected and opted for plan B. Another meat haul trip!! The guys were hooked up just about every-cast all morning long. Once we had our limit of pup drum and some reds we turned our focus to trout. We added 17 before heading in. Pretty exceptional day for 20 plus mph winds. The customers loved reeling in all the fish. Thanks Capt RD for setting it
up.

Long tough day with the fish in lockjaw with only a handful of fish to report. One of those days you don't want to remember. Thanks Tim for the repeat business, we will get them on the next trip.

Good customer Michael Tuite was back onboard the big #bluewave. With the winds up, we went straight to the ponds. Our first red came on a Purple Haze Vortexshad with a gold spinner bait. The grass was thick so we switched to weedless spoons and finished off the limit quick. We made a move to look for trout but found the pup drum stacked and finished our limit of pups off. What a great day. Thanks Mike for the continued business, wish Matt could have made the trip.

I had a big crew out with MMR, Summit, and Cajun. Forecast had the winds at 2-3 knots so we went out looking for trout. We found dirty water and a easy 10 knot wind. One trout to be had so we turned North to salvage the day. If only I could find a meteorologist to throat punch this week, they have had the forecast off every single day!!! We hit the ponds and found the reds. Hooked 16 and ended with 14, one shy of our limit. Number 15 was 1 inch away from the net and came off. We fished for another 30 plus extra minutes but was denied. Good times with these guys. Big thanks to Capt K Labat, A LaCour, and E Rodrigue for taking care of the other customers. Good job as always.

Robert Duffy was back with me today with a couple guest. We decided to focus on reds and drum. Bite was slow so we took a peek at a spot looking for trout and found some! We picked away at 25 then left the area to hit the ponds for reds. Slower red bite today but we ended up with 7. Good times today as everyone enjoyed themselves.

We found the trout piled up and hungry with new customer Fred Tucker and crew onboard. Put a nice lick on them with double rigged Matrix Shad. What a fun memorable trip!!

Paul and Brandon Bradford joined me this morning. We focused on trout but found dirty water and a very slow bite. Moved around and found clean water and no bites. We kept grinding as it was very tough. Switched to plan B and every single red and drum we caught were under 16 inches.

Kevin Ingram and crew were back onboard today. With the trout bite being so poor lately, we opted to play it safe and load up on a meat haul trip. We started on a point with moving water throwing bait shrimp under a cork. It didn't take long before we had puppy drum coming in one after another. Once the bite slowed we just moved around. We caught fish at every stop, putting our limit of puppy drum, 7 reds, 17 trout, a founder and a couple bay snapper in the K2. What a great day of catching they had, as it was non stop hook ups all day long. Thanks for the continued business Kevin.

Good customer Steven Borel and his grandson Justin were back onboard with me today. We fished for trout the first 45 minutes catching two fish so we switched to plan B quickly! Meat haul time. We moved to a point and started fishing bait shrimp under a cork. We caught fish every-cast for three hours, once the bite fizzled out we moved to another point and it was the same thing. Fish on again. With our limit of puppy drum and half a limit of reds and the tide finally moving, we made another drift for trout picking away at them adding another 7. We finished the day off soaking crabs as Steven wanted Justin to experience the fight of a bull red. We had one take down peeling out drag, but the fish came off. Good times as always with these guys, thanks for the continued business Borel.

My good Lucky Charms customers Josh & Mike Gillen with Gator Valve and Brady Funguy were back onboard the big Bluewave today. We started out the morning fishing Trout. It was a slow bite as it has been with the wind still blowing out of the North. We fished several locations for the first couple hours then switched to plan B. Our first stop produced several keeper reds and drum. Our second stop was even better as we had reds and puppy drum coming in one after another. We loaded up the K2 Cooler and had a blast doing it. Always a boat load of fish when this crew is onboard!! Thanks for the continued business guys.

It was day two with the Realtree crew and we finally had calm winds and slick seas. We made the journey out and covered 80 miles of pretty water to find no fish. Slick calm, clean, good tide movement, etc and not a trout to show. I'm still in disbelief now. My crew had to be back in before 12 to catch flights out so we were limited on time. We made one last stop on the way in with no luck also. Hopefully the trout bite kicks off soon! Big thanks to Capt Loyd Landry for putting the trips together.

I helped out Capt L Landry today with a crew from Real Tree and Otter Box. My crew onboard came from Pennsylvania, Colorado, and Georgia. We started where I crushed the reds yesterday, but found a much slower bite. My crew caught 20 plus reds but only 7 were keepers. We moved to another location catching about 12 more reds keeping 3. Our next stop found a couple fresh water catfish, a keeper red, sheep head and a pup drum. We made one drift for trout in a somewhat protected area hooking two trout keeping one. Our final stop found a school of pup drum, we caught 15 and 7 kept along with a 30 inch redfish. Fresh bait shrimp on the bottom or under a cork caught all fish except for the one speck. It was a fun day and my crew caught a bunch of fish. Thanks Capt Landry for setting up the trip.

Kyle Domangue with Quality Process Services brought a group of employees fishing today. With another front passing and winds out the North West I wasn't sure what we were going to find. Our first stop actually found fishable water for trout, but zero bites. We quickly switched to plan B and started red fishing. Our first stop found 4 keepers and a throw back. Our second stop we struck gold! It was every cast non stop action. The ladies wore out the reds easily catching 70 plus. Still we are finding a ton of undersized fish, so we had to weed through them. We ended the day with 24 reds, 4 sheep head, 1 puppy drum, and 1 flounder. What a fun time with this group, thanks Kyle.

Big thanks to Capt K Labat for running the second boat with the other half the crew. They also had a blast.

Winds and dirty water have been plaguing us for months it seems. We finally had a small break today with winds under 20 mph and found a protected area holding fish. Patience and persistence was key as we sat and grinded all day, which paid off on a nice box of fish. Green Hornet #matrixshad and tsunami swimbaits accounted for all of our fish tight lined slowly.

I helped out Capt Rob with the BUMS fishing crew once again. We headed out at 12 pm as the morning was very windy. We found a protected area with semi stained fishable water. First cast found a nice trout and the picking began. Slow and steady. Patience was key as we had to really stay put and grind them out. We ended up fishing four different areas and caught fish at all stops. Purple Haze #Vortex Shad and tsunami swim baits produced all trout today. Had a blast fishing with these guys.

I jumped onboard with my good buddy Chris Comeaux and friends for our annual 'buddy trip'!!!! Our first stop found us picking away at the trout. We fished a few new spots scouting since it was no pressure type of day!! We picked away at each stop adding some trout, drum, reds, and a lonely flounder. Never a dull moment with this crew, good times.

Had a crew of two from Missouri. Another grinding day picking away at the trout. High winds and dirty water are killing us right now. We got on a lil run of puppy drum on plastic. Switched to shrimp under a cork and caught a couple more then they disappeared. One red and a few trout in the area, then the bite shut off. We headed to the pass and started soaking crabs. Two big nasty drum and one bull red decided to bite. Another long grinding day, can't wait for this wind to calm down and water to clean up. Thanks Capt T for setting it up.

Find clean water is most important. We haven't seen and shrimp or birds diving yet, hopefully they will show up by the weekend.

Mostly all school trout right now, having to weed through hundreds of small fish. Seems like each day though more keepers are showing up.

Right now I'm not 100% sure. If I had to make a guess I would say no.

Fish were showing up in the lakes last week when it was warm. The last few days with the big drop in water temps and high winds we couldn't fish the lakes. Finding protection and clean water was key. Weather is looking better for the weekend and winds will be somewhat calmer. Fish May between winter spots and spring spots. Finding clean water in protected areas will probably be your best bet, not sure if open water in the lakes will be clean or not. Good luck.

Wow. Apache could have some major law suits on their hands. Sure hope they get wind of it and eliminate the problem.

Hopefully Apache will take note and take care of the problem before they get presented with a law suit. Someone could really get hurt from this.

Found out it was Apache that plugged the well in 2010 and records show it was cut 15 inches below the mud line. Obviously the pipe was still sticking up a good 3 ft from the bottom when I hit it in 2012. I wonder how many other people have hit it since then.

Thank you also Tony for providing a great site to share information. I've been super busy also between fishing, deer hunting, and family time. Hope you and your family also had a Merry Christmas and a safe Happy New Year.

Trout are everywhere actually. All of the interior Lakes, showing up in good numbers. The trout should start to get bigger also any day now.
