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.

Dularge Inshore Fishing Update
It's been awhile since I've posted a public report but I always post every day I fish on Facebook. You can follow me there at www.facebook.com/RobDupont3rnrnSince my last report the trout action has been steady as it can be up until yesterday when the west winds and high Atchafalaya River water finally encroached on our fishing grounds. I feel as though the fish are still there but it will take some days of light wind from a different direction to clean up. The Tracie Macie should have showed back up today in Caillou Boca and I've been getting live croakers for insurance when he is there. Other than that we have been catching trout on single rigged plastic Reflexion Lil Bammers as well as most matrix colors. Personally, I have more control with single rigs rather than double rigs where I lose sensitivity. Double rigs tangle entirely too much with customers as well. rnrnThe bull reds showed up in front of the barrier islands earlier this week gorging themselves on the massive schools of pogey. We hooked some for fun on Tuesday. rnrnThe slot reds should show up any day now in our deeper bayous inshore in the northern Dularge area. We will be targeted those when the winds are up or until the trout start their northern migration. rnrnCapt.

Two Day Trout Jackpot
Trout fishing the past two days in Dularge has been absolutely incredible. The winds cooperated and the water cleaned up great making it fairly easy to catch on artificial. Usually this time of year live bait is required but the fish are attacking the double rigs. Rapid fast paced action describes the last two days. Customers Justin, Nate, and Greg Verret were down for the weekend with hopes to fill their coolers with prime speckled trout fillets. They now have 400. In the deeper waters off the coast, shrimp are still abundant and as far as you can see. Birds were the key to finding the fish this weekend but they and the shrimp move extremely fast. When we found a school the bite was hot but didn't last long as the fish were gone. A few times I was able to stick the power pole and sit on a school and catch awhile although the birds had left. Most of the action on Friday had dissipated by 10:00 but we had our limit by then. Today we were done with 100 for 7:45. As hot as it is we were thankful to be done so early. Capt. Austin ran the second boat of the group coming in with a solid catch as well. Great times and great people this weekend makes life good! rnrnCapt.

Speckled Trout Return to Summer Pattern
Since the wind kicked up 10 days ago the great fishing we had died off and we were stuck inshore with redfish. Last Thursday was the first time I was able to get out to the islands and locate some trout. It didn't look good at first as the whites were thick but the spotted ones were a no show. The water still hadn't cleaned up from the gales so I went on the hunt. I found some protected water and it was stained green. Found the trout stacked up and hungry. It was full force action and we had 75 before noon. Friday I relocated to my home stomping grounds of Dularge. I had planned on fishing close but couldn't resist going back to where I found them the day before. They weren't as thick that day but all the fish were 16-18 inches. We ended up with 40. On Saturday the same honey hole produced but the bite died off quickly. We went on the hunt and got a call from another Capt. Rob that they were on em. We headed that way and topped the box off with 60 trout. I was off for my birthday on Sunday. Today I had an afternoon trip for Capt. T. Miller and we headed out west. We found emerald green water with smooth seas and the trout were jumping in the boat. An hour and a half later we had 75 on ice. It's hot but if the winds stay down I think we are in for another few weeks of great trout fishing. These fish are still where they are supposed to be and they are still thick. I would imagine some 50,000 trout have been caught from Cocodrie to Dularge already this summer and there are no signs of them disappearing or dwindling in numbers. We're having a great year so far!rnrnCapt. Rob Dupont rn225-776-9820 rnwww.impulsefishingcharters.com rnwww.facebook.com/impulsefishing rnInstagram @impulsefishing

Virginia Comes to Cocodrie
With the wind howling the last 7 days and forecasted to relax a little today, I went on the hunt again for speckled trout. I couldn't stand it being canceled the last 4 days in a row so I had to test the waters. The pressure was on to produce for my guests today from Virginia. Local Aaron Matassa had some friends down to sample some of our fine fishing. Kevin and Jack Hussey had never been fishing down here and are usually catching striped bass on the northeast coast. At our first location all we found were white trout and a bull red. Conditions were not even close to being trout friendly but we had some action so I hated to leave. At about 8:00 I made the call to move and I wish I had done it an hour earlier. I started heading west with no idea what next when all of sudden I spotted some green water. In that green water some birds were going nuts. I put the double rigs on and the guys began crushing the trout. It was about 50/50 throwbacks and when the frenzy died I trolled about 50 yards to a sunken island and found some hogs. We put a lick on em and finished up at 11:00 with 75rnrnCapt.

Two Days of Hard Work
As our good weather streak and incredible trout fishing came to a screeching halt, it came time to do some work. I had Phillip Miller and his grandson Phillip Patton with me for the last 2 days. The winds were way up and the challenge was thrown on the table to make the best of their trip down to Louisiana from Texas. I had found some bass on Thursday and I was hoping to get on them first thing yesterday morning but they weren't biting. Plan B went into effect and we went looking for slot reds. Those didn't want to bite either and we hit the best holes I knew about looking. We tried shrimp on the bottom and under a cork but it wasn't meant to be. Plan C was to send some whole crabs to the bottom of a deep hole and pray for something to eat. With clean ice we hit the bull red hole around 10:30. The boats already in the hole all morning only found 1 bull red to bite. Things were looking pretty grim when the light switch kicked on and they started chewing. We hooked up to several bull reds and black drum boating our 3 man limit by late afternoon. Today we counted on the bulls to bite again first thing but again we were let down. We went on the prowl for slot reds deep in the marsh. A nice flounder dirtied the ice but the reds were ghosts. We made a short move to some more protected marsh and I was just about to give up on the area when we hooked up. Little Phil struck gold with a spoon and put the first keeper slot in the box. A few casts later and number 2 hit the deck. I thought we were on to something and then we went another hour before finding number 3. We fished hard til 2:00 without getting another bite. We definitely earned these fish this weekend putting in full days of work and the guys did great making the most out of horrible conditions. rnrnCapt.

Trout Report 6/9/15
Another early day of limits today with the Carrol gang. Julian wanted to have some father/daughter time with Annelise and she had never caught trout before. We got to the spot before daylight as the lunar app indicated a 1 fish day with a major period very early today and then again not until afternoon. Usually a 1 fish day means no bueno but these charts are just a guide and they are accurate about 75% of the time. As soon as the first line touched the water we had a log come in the boat. There was a lot of activity on the water very early with sharks, ladyfish, and trout creating boils on the surface. It certainly wasn\'t fast action but the fish were coming in steady. Annelise learned very quickly and was soon hooking her own fish. She caught her first trout today followed by many more. Then all of a sudden all hell broke loose and it was fire and smoke. We had to move a short distance but found a very large school of fish. I would guess it had to be 100 yards in diameter as we were catching 360 degrees around the boat. Trout were flying over the rails at lighting speed and my crew did a great job of closing the deal. When the smoke cleared it was just after 8:00 and I pointed the Blue Wave north. These fish were holding in 8-10 ft of water and wanted our single rigged Reflexion Ghost Bammers popped twice. They would annihilate it on the fall. \r\n\r\nCapt.

Same Story Different Day
The last few days have been a blessing as the weather has cooperated enough for us to have smooth rides out and great fishing. Yesterday I had a trip for Capt Marty out of Dularge and the story is the same. I had two gentlemen catching their limit before noon. It was steady action all morning with the bite coming and going and fish moving around the platform constantly. Today I had a group of guys from a fishing club for Capt Tommy. At daylight the bite was hot all over the place and then he fish congregated and the school tightened so much you had to throw in the bucket. Single rigged Reflexion Lil Bammer in Ghost has been working very well. When the fish decide to quit biting plastic they will take a buffet of live shrimp, minnows, or croakers on the bottom. There's no sign of our good fishing slowing down and if the weather stays right we will have the best year of trout fishing I can remember since I was a teenager. rnrnCapt.
