Cocodrie Report (Trout & Bull Reds)
The last two days I had Mr. Billy Carter in town. He wanted one day of trout fishing and one day of redfishing. On Tuesday (5-3-16) we waited for the weather window that was to be mid day and headed out of Tradewinds Marina with live shrimp. It was still a bit rough on the way out and I was planning on fishing Timbalier island. When we arrived at the island the water was so dirty I knew it would be a waste of time. I decided we should run a little further east looking for some clean green water and we found it. About that time the wind settled down a bit and I casted a double rig out and as soon as it touched the water I had two fish on. I had Mr. Billy throwing live shrimp and hurried up and switched him over to plastic. We caught em on pearl white with black and purple flake swimbaits. Today (5-4-16) we launched at Jug's in Dularge with 3 dozen crab and hit the pass. We waited and waited and nothing wanted to eat yet. I was marking stacks of bull reds and drums but something was up. The tide was right so I'm not sure. We made a long move and set up on a good spot. I wasn't marking anything but after 5 minutes the bite went off. Nothing special about this place as it was the same as the other place just these fish were hungry. So Mr. Billy caught 5 bull reds and released 3 keeping two for the pit. The man is a beast when it comes to fishing. We got back to the lodge and what does he do, goes throw another line out for catfish off the dock. Much a pleasure Mr. Billy, you're always good company. rnrnCapt.

Another Day in Cocodrie
Today I had 2 guys from the Dakota Decoy company and they knew the adverse conditions we would face but wanted to get on the boat and give it a go anyway. I ran out to the islands along with Capts. Josh and Chris and we knew it would be a tough day. I had 100 live shrimp. We bounced around the island but never found what we were looking for. I decided to gamble again and go to the next island and although we took a beating, it paid off. At 11:00 with only 1 trout on ice, we found a nice little bite and started stacking the trout. Most came on plastic with a few doubles and a few were caught on shrimp. I never would have thought we would have caught 40 trout today but stranger things have happened. It was a great day with some great folks. Big thanks to Capt. Chris for setting up the trip, even though it was at 9:00 last night!rnAttached ImagesrnrnCapt.

Cocodrie Trout and Fast Action
This morning began with light rain on the radar and the future cast showing thunderstorms popping up right over the trout hole. Getting our live shrimp was easy at No Wait Live Bait. Once on step, I pointed the Blue Wave toward the big island and stopped at a recently productive spot. After a few casts the fish that weren't there let us know they weren't. Another move to another recently productive spot proved to be unfruitful as well. After an hour with no bites we finally decided to change area codes. I didn't have a good feeling at all and needed to change our luck. We jumped over to the next island and the sun came out and suddenly I felt like we were going fishing now. The water changed to beautiful emerald green and I had a good feeling. We hit a spot that I haven't been to in a long long time and began fishing. I was throwing plastic and my customers live shrimp. They weren't getting any bites on the shrimp and I could tell it was frustrating. I kept trolling the set of pilings and five minutes later all hell broke loose! I caught a double on the plastic and that was all I needed to see to switch everyone over to plastic. Amid the frenzy, I quickly set the Motorguide on anchor and we began to wreck them. When the smoke cleared and the bite died we had 65 laying on the floor. My customers were ecstatic and that was enough for them. They were extremely happy with what had just happened and were satisfied with that. Sometimes it's not all about a limit and that's 10 more trout for someone else to catch. We took it to the dock and it felt good. rnrnCapt. Rob DupontrnImpulse Fishing Chartersrn225-776-9820rnwww.impulsefishingcharters.comrnwww.facebook.com/impulsefishingrnInstagram @impulsefishing

Two Days of Hammering Trout
The last two days proved to be the beginning of the spring trout run along the coast of Terrebonne Parish. The fish seemed to have migrated outside of the interior marsh and settled into their usual spring haunts. Friday began a two day trip for Capt. Travis Miller with a big group of folks from West Monroe. I had 3 of them for both days...Greg, Dannon, and Byron...those guys were fun as hell to fish with. We set up shop early morning on a reef and started catching pretty good on Matrix Ultraviolet under a cork. We picked up 22 trout before another boat came in with live shrimp and shut off our plastic bite. We left there and headed north toward the coast looking for cleaner water. It was still pretty windy, but we got on a decent little run and picked up 20 more trout. Saturday was the same game plan except to bring live shrimp this time. We got to the same spot first thing in the morning and the bite was on. The fish were a little smaller going at a rate of 5 throwbacks to 1 keeper. The bite didn't last as long as it did Friday and conditions were deteriorating. We then decided to repeat what we did yesterday and head north. As luck would have it, we found some fish again in Sister Lake that didn't quite make their migration yet. Again, lots of throwbacks but ended the day identically to Friday. I am headed out now with the family to see if we can hammer some state water snapper! This weather is great! I'm open all week and I'm thinking it would be a good time to get on the action!

Fishing Resumes in Dularge
Just when I thought we were going to get a nice break in the weather, remnants of the 15-20 mph blows of the last week persisted through the early hours of morning giving us breezy conditions yet again. Twelve mile-an-hour southeast gusts blew over the bays and lakes of lower bayou dularge as my crew and I began our search for speckled trout. It was too rough to go offshore to the islands, so we stayed in the lakes looking for birds. The first stop of the day we found birds diving on shrimp jumping out of the water. We were on a protected shoreline just north of Lake Mechant and I thought for sure there would be hungry trout beneath them. Not the case. There were a couple of throwbacks in the mix but that was it. We headed further north deeper into the marsh. Within a 1/4 mile we spotted another flock of gulls going crazy. Again, I was sure there were trout under them. Again, not the case. Puzzled, we turned around and headed back toward the lake. And again, more birds, same story. Things just weren't working out with the trout so we headed for the coast looking for bull reds. It took awhile, but we found 'em along with some black drum on the crab soak. When the bite played out we went north again on the hunt for slot reds in the duck ponds. We only saw two reds on our drift and never closed the deal on either. By this time, it's around noon and we decided to go on the hunt for trout again. We did a lot of running today, burning more fuel than a typical day of charter fishing. Finally, with NO birds in sight, I decided to check a reef that usually holds trout. There it was, fish on. By God, it was a slow and painful bite but we alas found some action. We fished those reef trout for a couple hours keeping the biggest fish that hit the deck. The guys were pleased with the day and know that we worked our butts off to locate some fish. This weather looks like it is going to cooperate for us through the weekend, so my fingers are crossed. When we are able to get to the islands, I have a great feeling we will be smashing speckled trout. Big thanks to Capt. T Lovell for the trip!rnrnCapt.

Wisconsin Does Louisiana
Eric and Sandy Haberichter left Wisconsin on Tuesday and began their trek down to Louisiana, despite the challenging conditions we would be facing on Thursday. With them were their two boys Hunter and Hayden who have never caught a Louisiana bull red. The forecast called for 20-25 mph out of the southeast but only 30% chance of rain. I was doubtful we would find anything willing to feed and up until 2:00 I had clean ice. A normal day on the water for me is 6:00-2:00. With the smell of a skunk lingering, I pressed onward after I had covered nearly every spot I knew about in lower Terrebonne Parish. I figured if every one of my plans had failed so far, the only choice was to start over from the beginning. The first spot we fished on this morning I could see the bulls stacked up on top of each other on the sonar. The current was moving too fast for my liking but I had 2 oz. of lead on the bottom along with fresh whole crabs. The fish just weren't eating. Anyhow, we were now back at that spot but the current had weakened just enough. I set out 4 lines and hoped at least a drum would bite. It is now 2:30 and with just enough faith, a line goes off. First fish of the day was boatside and in the net. An enormous sigh of relief!!! The fish were finally chewing and the lines kept going off one after another. The crew got excited real quickly!!! When the smoke cleared everyone got to fight a bull red and we came home happy. Patience and persistence always pays off!rnrnCapt.

Low Tide Redfish Smash
We finally get some relief from the high river and then the north wind blows all the water out. Some may see this negatively but I see it as an opportunity. With every extreme low tide those reds come out of hiding in the marsh and gang up in the main bayous. The trick is to find them, but when you do it is game on. My crew on Wednesday were surprisingly not in town for Mardi Gras, but here to jerk faces off of fish. Our first stop we found 51 degree water so trout catching was out of the question. I was counting on the redfish to bite at this temperature anyway but they weren't in the neighborhood. I had a plan and I knew I would eventually run into a pile of redfish on this day. The marsh showed it's mud banks as the combination of a previous 30 mph wind and a hard falling tide. Spot number 3 struck red and gold! They were there and they were thick! Found a constricted area of the marsh where the duck ponds were emptying out into the main bayou and these fish were going nuts! Absolutely nuts I tell you! In about 30 minutes we had our 25. A great time with some great folks!rnrnCapt. Rob DupontrnImpulse Fishing Chartersrn225-776-9820rnwww.impulsefishingcharters.comrnwww.facebook.com/impulsefishingrnInstagram @impulsefishing

Sheepshead City
Saturday was the day we've all been waiting for to see the trout bite go wide open. Perfect weather on the outside but not as perfect on the inside. Confronted by dirty water and low salinity at every spot, I was not having confidence in finding speckled trout. My customers Nick Hatzis and Cody Jackson were on board today to get a fishing fix and that's what we did. I pointed the Blue Wave to the sheepshead hole and thawed out the bait shrimp. If you never thought sheepshead fishing was a challenge, think again. They are simply not easy to hook! The guys struggled to get the hang of it but low and behold we won. We topped the box off with 27 heads and the whole time they were thinking of how was I going to clean them and how they were going to eat them with all the bones! No worries, I broke out the Rigid Sawzall equipped with the Dexter Russell 9 inch scalloped edge blade and went to work! Easy as pie! They went home happy of course! rnrnCapt.

Summer Time Trout Bite in December
Earlier this week I looked at the forecast and knew the trout bite would bust wide open. I picked up a last minute trip yesterday and the gang met me at the Reel Inn Dularge around 5:45 a.m. We headed to the spot that has been producing the most, deep in the brackish marsh. We were picking away at some trout but it wasn't hot n heavy. With 15 trout in the first hour I decided to make a move further in the marsh. Conditions today were as follows: 0 mph wind, good falling tide, low pressure. I looked at the territory I had just picked out and started casting at where the fish are usually holding up, making a drift with the current down a stretch of prime winter time hunting ground. The marsh wasn't speaking to me and didn't look alive. It's warming up good now and it occurred to me I was wasting time fishing where there wasn't any sign of life. Time to switch gears. In the distance I had visions of birds diving on shrimp and big speckled trout slurping them up. With the warm weather we've been having that made much more sense. Enter the lake. This time of year it is filled with liar birds but usually they don't lie too much in December. I spotted the flock I wanted, working a point with shrimp and mullet going nuts. Power Pole down, game on. My customers Brody and Brian chunked out the cork rigs with shrimp creole and they both immediately went down. And again and again. This was a hot bite like you read about. In fact, Brody remarked on reading about this type of bite all the time and never getting to experience it. Well, there it was every single cast trout thumping and corks submerging. The boys did the damage and stuffed the big KYSEK with some of the fattest lake trout I've seen with very few throwbacks in short order. Big thanks to Capt. Marty Lacoste for setting up the trip.rnrnCapt. Rob Dupont rnrn225-776-9820 rnrnwww.impulsefishingcharters.com rnrnwww.facebook.com/impulsefishing rnrnInstagram @impulsefishing

Black Friday Fishing
Historically, the day after Thanksgiving has been one of the best fishing days of the year. The front that rolled through last weekend put a damper on the bite this week with sustained pressure readings of 30.2-30.3. This morning the pressure was just below 30.2 but typically the fish get used to it after a few days. I think the minor feeding period today was between 5:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. We are also coming off a full moon. Looking back on the morning we had a good bite early on and things began to deteriorate with the east wind kicking up to 20 knots. Our first stop and first 3 casts produced trout then nothing. I made a short move upcurrent and found a good school again. We were on them pretty good slow rolling the bait on the bottom and also picking up a few 2 ft. under a popping cork. We boxed 20 trout before making a move deeper in the marsh. In a dead end with 8 feet of water we picked up 13 more trout and that's when the wind started. We were in a very narrow channel and still had whitecaps. That was the end of that. I brought us to a few more locations to try but it just wasn't working out. With 33 trout we called it. It was a great morning to be on the water and feel those trout thumps. I just can't get enough of setting that hook. rnrnCapt.

Speckled Trout in Full Swing
My my what a day! The marsh is absolutely LOADED with fish right now and this is what happens on a gorgeous day in November down in Dularge, LA. The day began with the tide slow rolling out of the marsh and the trout were slurping shrimp in the slick calm water. I love that sound. With no wind it was picture perfect. Everything was right in the world and speckled trout began to thump the bottom of the Blue Wave. Now this bite didn't last long. After 7:00 we left the 6 ft. depths and were greeted in the lake by flocks of birds as far as you could see. I'm talking big gulls diving all over the place, some so full they couldn't even fly tearing up the white shrimp. I'm not gonna lie we probably caught at least 200 fish today. There's so many fish it's unreal. Hitting and running was the name of the game most of the morning until we hit our limit of 75, keeping the biggest fish we could find. With this many fish out there it's easy to see what the rest of this month and December will bring. With a few more cold fronts coming up these fish will get nice and fat deep in the marsh. I can't wait! Thanks to Capts Travis Miller and Marty Lacoste for putting everyone on limits as well!rnrnCapt.

Air Moving at High Speeds & Trout
The last few days I've been having to run all over the place desperately looking for anything willing to bite. Bull reds and drum have been lifesavers in this persistent high speed air movement. I made some decisions early today that turned into a pot of gold and I was relieved. This was day 2 with my customers from Mississippi and yesterday they had all they wanted bull reds and black drum. Today they wanted trout. I bounced around the lakes looking for birds and it just wasn't paying off. I made a move inland to a small bayou deep in the eastern marsh of lower Bayou Dularge. Then as luck would have it, I spotted some birds diving in a place they weren't supposed to be diving. That's when the thunder struck. Double and triple hookups occurred and the Kysek cooler began to flood with trout. When the smoke cleared we had 60 keepers and 20 or so throwbacks. With happy faces, we made one last stop and slammed the reds before calling it a day. It looks like the next few days will be a bust due to the front but after that it should be hammer time!rnrnCapt.

That Time of Year
As soon as the first cold arrives you can almost set your clocks to the speckled trout. They\'ve begun to show up with the arrival of the shrimp and the birds aren\'t lying. I figured the hot redfish action we\'ve had for the last few months would be slowing down but that is simply not the case. \r\n\r\nThis morning was the first dead calm day we\'ve had in awhile and we got right down to business. Birds diving and shrimp jumping everywhere but I paid no attention to them for the first hour of fishing. I snuck over to an oyster reef where I knew the fish would be bigger. Sure enough some good trout were pulling down the corks. After that played out is when we started bird fishing. The fish were much smaller under the birds but when the birds left I dropped the power pole and we kept catching. The bigger fish remained in the same location and we iced up around 50. The guys today were from North Carolina and really wanted some hard hitting redfish, so we headed over to the hot spot. After I got the water chummed with the crab claws and tops, the reds turned on and we caught a few big bulls. When that played out we went and found some slots. \r\n\r\nThe fishing so far this fall has been excellent and I expect the trout bite to get better and better with each cold front. Soon my dock shots will become mostly silver and dots. See yall later\r\n\r\nCapt.

End of the Month Report
Much of the same activity has been occurring since my last post. The reds have still been schooled up tight in the deep holes of the crooked bayous of lower Terrebonne Parish. Cracked crab is still the bait of choice and can be obtained at Jug's Boat Launch at the end of Bayou Dularge Road. I am using a pre-made 1 oz. carolina rig made by Billy Bundy of Houma. You can find his rigs in any gas station or marina south of Houma. rnrnMany of these trips we've had to wait on the tide to get right as these reds have been really particular lately. If the current is moving too slow or too fast, they won't bite. It had to be just right. I expect this to remain the same until the first real cold front. rnrnThe speckled trout in the area have not made an appearance except for a few pee wee's we found mixed in with the ladyfish under some birds. After the recent cool fronts we've had I would expect them to show up any day now. The white shrimp are here and the salinity in the lakes is good. rnrnOctober and November are great months for speckled trout and I am open most weekdays through those months. rnrnCapt.

Dularge Inshore Fishing Update
Since my last report we have gone from smashing trout to smashing redfish. The end of July and early days of August the trout fishing remained strong along the coast and around the barrier islands of South Central Louisiana. That all changed rapidly when the Atchafalaya river rose and the west winds started charging. That river water covered our entire trout fishing grounds all the way to Last Island. In that situation there's only one thing to do and that is switch to redfish. Almost like clockwork the reds leave the boiling waters of the shallow marsh and head for deeper channels this time of year. The bait of choice is crab on the bottom, sometimes whole and sometimes halved. We found the reds schooled up very thick the last week or so and that should be expected through mid September. I do believe there are still trout to be caught offshore and if we get some calm days I will be trying to locate them. The river has started to fall and the west winds have subsided so I think our area will clean up before the trout start their migration north. If that doesn't work out, I will be all over the bronzebacks until the trout make an appearance inshore. rnrnCapt.
