Bill Lake, a native of Houma, La. grew up fishing the fresh and saltwater marshes of Terrebonne Parish. After 30 years of successful fishing, he has learned to narrow his focus to trophy speckled trout and redfish. Most of his effort & expertise is expended in the inland/coastal waters of Bayou Dularge. The Sister Lake-Lake Mechant area out of Bayou Dularge offer great springtime, fall and winter fishing for specks and reds.
During the summer months of May-August, one can find Capt. Bill combing the adjacent Louisiana barrier islands and the numerous rigs/platforms scattered throughout the ship-shoal area in search of mule speckled trout! Bull redfish can be caught on a regular basis all summer long near the tidal passes of Last Island. One can also expect to catch BlackDrum, Flounder, White trout, Sheepshead and many other variety's of fish that inhabit the Louisiana coastline. See for yourself why our fertile estuaries are among the best in South Louisiana!

Big day with the redfish this morning 'DOWN IN DULARGE'! Torrential rain and gail force winds could not stop my crew from fishing today. Talk about wanting to fish bad!!! Eldon 'Ricky' Harrall, Chris Cressoine, and Steven Ledet were determined to fish today as it was their day off from work. After the storms blew over it turned out to be a pretty day except for the 25 mph winds. The guys took care of business hooking up with no less than 30 reds as we had no problem catching our 20 fish limit. Everything as usual tightlining LSU BAYOU CHUBS. We fished very deep in the Dularge marsh in small potholes and ditches usually only deep enough for pirouges. The 2ft. above normal tides had the fish in some skinny areas. We'll get'em again in the morning as I know right where the reds are hiding! Good luck fishing. Capt. Bill Lake 985-851-6015 985-637-3712
Big fun yesterday 'DOWN IN DULARGE' with the boys from Tellus. On board for the trip was Bill Phillip, Mike Libert, Bobby Sanders and Tommy Breland from Mississippi. Started off with a good morning of trout fishing catching 45 yellow-mouths. Finished up with some great action with the redfish in the ponds. Caught 15 reds and a few drum before heading to the dock. LSU BAYOU CHUBS did the damage as there is no other lure needed! Just ask the guys!! Special thanks to Capt's Bob and Ricky for helping out the 2 days with over 200 trout caught. Good luck fishing.

Capt. Ricky's crew with some of those DULARGE REDFISH!
The redfish put on another show this morning 'DOWN IN DULARGE'! Quick and easy limits today for Randy Wilks, John Abbott, and Tracey Goodlowe. High water levels have the reds eating up our BAYOU CHUBS ---just don't get any better! Final tally today for 9:00a.m. was 20 reds, 6 trout, 2 flounder and 3 drum. Going to make a try for the reds again tomorrow--weather permitting--will post what we find. Good luck fishing. Capt. Bill Lake 985-851-6015 985-637-3712
All the redfish you want right now 'Down in Dularge'! Wilbert, Sammy and Gil believe in the BAYOU CHUBS fish catching ability!
Another good box of Dularge Bronze-backs!
An incredible morning of fishing today 'DOWN IN DULARGE'! The bad weather moved out of the area just before daybreak giving us a nice morning to chase the redfish. Fishing for the bronze-backs has been better each day with the higher water levels in the marsh. Today was no exception as we caught over 100 redfish before 11:00a.m.!! I fished with Carlton Johnson, Willert Menard, Sammy 'Birthday Boy' Davidson, and Gil McElroy of Lafayette, La. Capt. Alex helped out running the second boat. His crew consisted of Terry McCarthy, Glenn Snapp, Nils Persson and Jonas Persson. Nils and Jonas were in from Sweden and were treated to a great fishing trip South Louisiana style! Both boats limited out easily bringing in 50 redfish, 11 blackdrum, 12 trout and 3 flounder. Another 50 reds between both boats were released to fight another day! Every fish today was caught on 1 lure**the LSU BAYOU CHUB MINNOW** tightlined on a 1/4oz. jighead. Double and triple hook-ups were common today as the reds simply went wild---eating upAeverything in sight! Both groups enjoyed a great adventure this morning and I know they'll be back for more soon! Good luck fishing. Capt. Bill Lake 985-851-6015 985-637-3712
A windy but productive morning of fishing today 'DOWN IN DULARGE'! Good to fish with Sheriff Ronnie Book and his wife Sheila from Jonesville, La. We targeted redfish today in the ponds with good results. Catching over 20 reds, we kept our 15 fish limit along with a mixed bag of fish including reds, drum, sheepshead, flounder and 1 five pound trout. The big trout and 6 reds were caught on the LSU Bayou Chub. The remainder of our catch was caught on shrimp under a cork and tightlined on the bottom. Finding clean water in deep areas of the marsh was the ticket today. Good luck fishing. Capt. Bill Lake 985-851-6015 985-637-3712
All the wind you want 'DOWN IN DULARGE'! A cool start this morning but don't you just love it! Great weather if you're not fishing. Sheriff Book cancelled his trip for today because of slim chances to catch trout but Andy Simon, Jeff Butler and Kurt Walker were itching to go catch fish. We hit the marsh fishing the deeper ditches and run-outs and the fish were there. We busted the reds catching our 20 fish limit and kept a few puppy drum for lagniappe! Gold spoons and the almighty LSU Bayou Chub did the damage. No shrimp today! Everyone had a great time in the beautiful Bayou Dularge marsh. Taking off the weekend and hope to get back on track with the trout starting Monday. Good luck fishing. Capt. Bill Lake 985-851-6015 985-637-3712
A nice Dularge pond trout---5lbs. 2 oz.--------She had a 6 in. mullet in her throat and still greedy enough to attack the LSU Bayou Chub. It was her last meal.
