Tom Villien and his two sons joined me on the Bluewave for a afternoon trip. We thought with the water temps around 46 degrees it was going to be a redfish day. Our first six fish were redfish, then all of a sudden we started catching specks! We hit a pretty good school and had steady action for almost a hour before the bite quit. We moved around adding two more reds and a couple specks before watching the sun set. Shrimp Creole and Ultraviotlet Matrix Shad lures under a cork worked best. Thanks guys, great fishing with you.

Yesterday at 8:58am

Day one with 40 degree temps and 32 mph winds and the crew crushed the redfish!! Green Hornet Matrix Shad tight lined slowly got it done as usual!! What a incredible day reeling in all these redfish in the worst conditions possible, customers loved it.

Big thanks to Capt Travis Miller, Lonnie Barr, and Elton Rodrigue for running the other boats putting the guys on fish too.

Ricky and Linda Barbera joined me today for a trout Slam. Easy limits as the bite continues to be incredible. Matrix Shad green hornet Tight lined slowly and shrimp Creole under a cork both worked well. Thanks for another great morning on the water.

Another incredible day with good customer Randy Davis and family. Cold water temps has the reds stacked up and they didn't disappoint today. Green Hornet #Matrixshad accounted for every fish we caught today, no other lures needed. Slow retrieve as the water temps were 41 dregrees. Everyone caught their share of reds and bass today. We caught and released for a while before we called it quits. Thanks as always for the continued business.

Jack Legendre and crew were back onboard the Bluewave again. Our morning started off slow at our first two stops with only two fish. The front pushed through quickly and at our third stop we found the fish stacked up. We went from 2 - 72 before the bite slowed down. A couple more stops and we had 88 iced down before the guys called it a day to get back. Green Hornet and Limbo Slice Matrix Shad tight lined slowly did all the damage. Great time with these guys as usual, thanks again.

David Deshautelle and kids joined me today. Our first stop had Trout coming in one after another pretty quick, but lots of throw backs mixed in. We made a move and found the same thing, lots of fish and bites but 50/50 keepers to throw backs. We picked away adding to the K2 Cooler. No one stop shop today, as we had to move around and work for them. We ended the day with a good solid box of fish. Green Hornet and Limbo Slice #Matrixshad tight lined did all the damage. Always a pleasure fishing with David.

Big thanks to Capt Labat for taking care of my good customer Mike Tuite and crew.

Pete Landgrave brought his dad and brothers today. Dad wanted to go fishing for his Christmas present. Mission accomplished as dad didn't just go fishing, he went Catching. It was fish on from our first stop to our last stop. Green Hornet Matrix Shad tight lined produced 95% of all of our fish and Shrimp Creole under a cork 5%. 125 trout, 8 reds, 1 bay snapper, and 1 pup drum hit the K2 Cooler. Incredible day again as the bite is on fire right now. Thanks guys for a superb day.

Openings still available to get in on this insane action.

Shannon Bertrand and crew joined me on a afternoon trip. The guys duck hunted in the morning and met me at the dock at 12. We found a much slower bite than yesterday and had to fish and cover more water. Green Hornet and Ultra Violet Matrix Shad tight lined slowly again produced all of our fish. Most fish today came in deeper water 6-8 ft. Trout, Bass, and reds all hit the deck of the Bluewave. Thanks Capt T for setting up the trip.

It was about the kids and Catching today. I was able to take my oldest son and some of his buddies out fishing for the second time all year. The bite has been so good lately the boys were able to crush the fish! We worked over the fish in the shallows over a reef in 2 ft of water or less. Green Hornet and Ultaviolet Matrix Shad tight lined slowly did the trick as the fish were hungry. Great memories made.

Good as it gets again today for my Texas crew. The red bite was a lil slower, but the trout bite was fast n Furious. We crushed the specks tight lined and under a cork. Green Hornet #matrixshad tight lined and Shrimp Creole Matrix under a cork did the job. Limits of trout and 9 reds hit the box. Many under sized reds and trout released.

Last minute opening for tomorrow if anyone wants to get in on the incredible bite we are having.

Chad Evans and Jared Landry experienced a incredible morning of catching! The reds were stacked up thick in the cold waters and fed heavy on our Green Hornet Matrix Shad tightlined. 80 plus reds hit the deck of the Bluewave as we kept our 15 fish limit. Water temp peaked at 50 degrees and the trout started to bite a little. We ended up icing down 23 nice specks also. We fished four locations finding redfish at every stop. Thanks guys, I had a blast fishing with you.

Cold weather has the redfish stacked up thick. We started out tight lining #matrixshad lures in various colors catching one after another. Things slowed a lil so I rigged up a couple lines with shrimp under a cork. Both worked and everyone continued to catch until 30 hit the box. We threw back 15 plus undersized fish also. Good as it get, the kids loved reeling in all the fish.

Petey Kern and crew were back with me on the big Bluewave today. Our first two stops only found about 11 fish, and one rude googan boater. Our third stop is where we found the silver! Shrimp Creole Matrix under a cork and Holy Joely tight lined in 3 ft of water put a hurt on the specks. Thanks guys for the continued business over the years, always fun fishing with you.

Dr Randy Davis and his wife Kathy joined me again today on the big Bluewave. A lil foggy this morning so we took our time heading out. Our first two stops were slow, not finding many fish. Third stop was a charm, as the yellow mouths started to fill up the 120 qt K2 Cooler. Majority of the fish were caught drifting reefs and birds on Shrimp Creole #Matrixshad under a cork. During our last 40 minutes the fish started hitting the green Hornet #Matrixshad tight lined. 75 specks, 4 whites and 2 reds was the tally. We could have sank the boat with white trout, but only kept four that were 13 inches. Thanks again for the continued business, always a pleasure fishing with you.

Joey Hedrick and Corey Louis were back on the Bluewave. We got delayed over a hour due to the thick fog. Our first stop only produced 7 fish, so we made a quick move and found them stacked up. It was every cast action as we had 13-16 inch fish coming in the boat. A handful came tight lined, but the majority were caught under a cork. Shrimp Creole Matrix Shad under a cork Continues to be our top producer every day. Thanks guys for another incredible morning of catching, always a pleasure having you on board.

New customer Scott Murphy and his wife joined me today. What a morning they got to experience!! Fast n Furious every cast action on Shrimp Creole Matrix under a cork. We trolled around for the first 30 minutes then hit the mother load of mother loads!!! The bite was insane, as we had our three person limit in a matter of 30 minutes once we found the pot of silver! We left the trout biting every cast and went deep in the marsh to redfish. We topped the box off with 6 reds, 2 pup drum, and a bay snapper. We sight casted to 6 reds minimum with two taking the bait and the rest spooking or just swimming away. Pretty awesome day as it just doesn't get much better. Thanks again Scott, awesome time with you.

Big thanks to Capt's K Labat, S Whitney, and A LaCour for taking care of the Inolect crew. Everyone smashed the trout and the customers raved about how much fun they had.

Randy and Kathy Davis joined me once again on the big Bluewave. Our game plan was kinked as the power was out and we couldn't get the boat off the lift. Finally at 7 am the power came on and we were off. We missed the best bite of the morning and knew we would have to work a little harder to find them. We got off to a slow start finding boats everywhere imaginable! I turned my focus to strictly fishing reefs and it paid off. Shrimp Creole under a cork and tight lining the green Hornet Matrix worked best as it has been. We put their two person limit of specks and four reds in the boat then headed in. Thanks for the continued business, always a pleasure fishing with you.

Day two with Chip Spurlock's crew found the trout stacked up and feeding heavy at our first stop. Every cast action on Matrix Shad lures tight lined and under a cork. The guys made quick work of slinging in specks for a good 45 minutes straight. Once the bite slowed down we made a move to some diving birds and added another 21 fish before the bite shut down. We headed to see if we could find the bay snapper and reds from yesterday, but they were not willing to bite. Only two and a big red joined the party. We tried for trout some more adding three more to the count before calling it a day. Thanks guys for another two great days of catching and the continued business.

Chip Spurlock and crew were back with me for their annual November trip. Winds were pumping first thing in the morning so we stayed protected. Trout bite at our first few stops were a bust. We made a move and found the tail end of a bite and boated about 14 specks. We moved around trying a few other locations without luck, so we opted to put plan B in motion!! Good call, as we found a few reds and the bay snapper stacked up thick!! Shrimp on the bottom did the trick as we filled the 120 K2 to the top then called it a day. Always a pleasure fishing with these guys, thanks.

Big group down at the lodge yesterday evening and today. We ran four boats yesterday evening fishing a couple hours before the sun set. Each boat came in with some fish, no big numbers. Chef Shawn P had a incredible gumbo, wings, and tator salad waiting for us once we returned. Today we got a very late start and the winds were already blowing right a 20 mph. Every one still got on a bite and put a box together considering the less than favorable conditions. Tight lining our Matrix Shad doubled and single worked best at our first stop under birds. We fished reefs the rest of the morning and under a cork worked better. Chef Shawn P out did him self for lunch!! Seafood Chowder and fresh fried fish with the banana split dessert. Everyone had a great time, thanks.

Big thanks to Capt's R Dupont, K Labat, T Miller, and J Broussard for helping with the big crew.

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.

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.

I fish out of Dularge, La South of Houma. Yes I fish for a living and no I do not broadcast specific locations where I fish. If I did there would be 20 boats where I fished and I would not be able to fish myself. Dularge is a great area as such is many others. It's all about getting out and learning the area and putting your time in. The redfish bite is incredible right now as the trout are transitioning in.

Good luck and tight lines
