Shallow water reds
It's February and you pretty much just have to roll with whatever is thrown at you and with the trout scattered you have to move. This morning Eric Frank and crew were back and looking for a good time. I scouted yesterday afternoon with Capt. Lonnie and we found 20 trout but had to make 12 moves to make that happen so I was ready for a bunch of moves. The curveball thrown to us was the wind was blowing good at daybreak instead of starting up around 9 like I had thought. The hard south wind limited us to where we could fish which is never good when you are planning on having to fish a bunch of areas. Just like the day before it was a couple here and a couple there. Most were keepers and they only wanted our Glow and Ultraviolet Matrix under a cork. The guys put a lil lick on the trout but with the winds blowing 20mph we retreated deep into the shallow marsh where the water was crystal clear to catch some reds. We hooked up instantly and drifting a 75 yards we put 3 on ice with a few throwbacks. Basic fishing, 1/4oz jigheads with a green Hornet Matrix thrown to the grass and start reeling as soon as it hits the water. We didn't force the issue with the trout and it worked out good for us.

Lockjaw Trout
It was Day 2 with Ralph and his bachelor party crew. The guys showed up with glossy eyes but were in good spirits and ready to roll. The guys only had a few hours to fish so we headed back to where we found them yesterday. The finger mullet were still there but we found a slow bite. We had 8 hit the K2 and then we were off. We fished 3 more spots only for one more keeper. Yesterday Ralph told me he really wanted to catch a red over 37in since that was his biggest to date so I brought some bait crabs. With the trout having lockjaw and not having a lot of time to track them down the guys were good with hitting the pass for some bulls and beers. Couldn't have worked out any better, within 5 minutes Ralph was hooked onto a beast of a red that ended up being 40 inches. We took some pictures and released the beast. His buddies are going to make a mount for his wedding gift which I thought was a great idea. We sat in the pass for the next 2 hours catching bull reds and drum before the guys had to take it to the dock so they could get on the road. Thanks Capt. Rob for setting up the trip.rnrnCapt.

Last days of a bachelor
Ralph came down with his buddies/family to celebrate the last days of freedom before the ball and chain were locked on. My scouting trip yesterday afternoon paid huge dividends today. We had some calm winds early but then the wind machine kicked up. The gnats got us early but with a little spray and specks flying into the boat everyone hung in there. We got on a great run fishing about 3 foot of water with Ultraviolet and Glow Matrix and the Blueback Tsunamis. We drifted back and forth a few times before we wore out our welcome. We made the run to drift Lake Decade and found about 25 trout on a few drifts before the wind just got out of control. We made one more stop on a 2ft deep reef for a few more before heading in. February is traditionally a tough month but the warmer weather seems to have helped, at least today. Thanks Capt. Rob for setting up the trip.rnrnCapt.

Afternoon Scouting Trip
It's February and it's our slow time of year. I haven't fished for a week so but I had heard of some tough reports which made me want to check out some areas to help eliminate water for my charter the next day. I left out of the Reel Inn around 1:30 and started close to the camp and just worked away. With an incoming tide my first 3 casts produced keepers and I was thinking to myself, really I can't be this lucky to hit the jackpot on the first stop. Well after those 3 fish they were gone. I drifted a bit and found 2 more before I left the reef I was fishing. Multiple moves finding a lot of dirty water and only 1 fish had me concerned. Luckily I found a small area with decent water and a bunch of mullet playing. It was game on. I put 12 on ice before taking it to the dock before it got dark. Blueback Tsunamis did the majority of the damage.rnrnCapt. Travis Millerrn985-981-6434rnmiller-timefishingcharters.com

Silver Bullets
I just got back from a nice and relaxing vacation down in Punta Cana to jump on the Bluewave to search for the Silver Bullets. Gary Karr and his brother David came down from the north shore for a foggy start. Once the light was good we took off down the bayou to see what we could find. We started in what I would call mid marsh with the thought the water temp being 63 the trout wouldn't be snuggled in the deep holes but up on the flats near some deep water. We had beautiful water with calm winds we found a mix of keepers and throwbacks early on preferring the Matrix Glow and Ultraviolet Violet under a cork. As we worked thru the morning the guys kept with the cork and I switched to the tightline and had equal success. The incoming tide had the trout pretty close to the shoreline everywhere we stopped. It was a consistent bite with a few doubles and triples but not fast and furious for any amount of time. The guys caught a couple bull reds and small reds which were released. The most fish we found at a stop was 34 and 25 at another stop then it was a handful here and there before we finished our day heading north to the Reel Inn. February is traditionally a very inconsistent month so try to pick your days to give yourself the best shot for a good catch.rnrnCapt. Travis Millerrn985-981-6434rnmiller-timefishingcharters.com

Not Good to Epic day
Jeremiah Wegner was back onboard but his crew backed out on him so it turned into a solo trip. We started off on a point catching some nice trout and then they disappeared. We trolled around looking for them but they vanished. We moved around for the next hour or so only finding 1 keeper and some throwbacks. With 18 trout in the K2 it wasn't looking good. I started to think catching 20 on the day would be a good day. It was time to think outside the box and head to more open water. Bingo as we hit a cove that has an oyster bottom and got on a quick bite using Blueback Tsunamis. Think we picked up a dozen on the drift. Tried the drift once again for a couple more. Running out of options since I was communicating with other guides all over I decided we were going to switch gears for reds. On my way to a protected canal I changed my mind and stopped on a wind blown reef. Not a place most would stop because the size of the waves from the wind but what the heck lets give it a quick drift. BAM it was game on. Jeremiah and I had them coming in every cast on the Shrimp Creole Matrix under a cork. Once we finished up it was just after noon so we took a shot at a red. I pulled into a little canal with a good falling tide and we casted out some bait Shrimp on a 1/4oz jighead. The cajun gold were thick and we put a quick 10 in the K2. Just an insane day with ups and downs. Went from thinking we would catch our limit to maybe we will catch 20 to wow it doesn't get any better. rnrnCapt.

Steady wins the race
Kolby and Dave joined me this morning. We had another foggy start but it wasn't too thick so we took it easy heading to our first stop. We found a raging falling tide and a few small fish with a few keepers in the mix. As the fog slowly cleared the bigger trout started to chow down on our Glow and Ultraviolet Matrix tightlined and under a cork. We basically just kept casting and we never got on the trout heavy but we steadily caught solid 14-16inch trout with a couple going 18. We made a few moves and kept at them and we filled the K2. Kolby really wanted a red so I stopped on one of my favorite points and BAM a big 28 inch red smashed his Matrix tipped with bait shrimp. Made me look like a genius. Lol A great morning on the bayou and the steady bite made for a day of catching. Thanks Capt. CV for setting up the trip.rnrnCapt. Travis Millerrn985-981-6434rnmiller-timefiahingcharters.com

Bachelor Party to Remember
Dell, Will, Justin, and Chris jumped on with me while Capt. RD took the rest of the group. We arrived at our first top over a shallow flat. We got on a fast and furious bite and then all the boats showed up and the fish told us they were done so we were off to another flat. Got on another good bite but like a light switch the fish stopped biting. We moved around catching a couple here and there but nothing serious. The guys decided to call it an early day and start the party early. Thanks Capt. Austin for setting up the trip.rnrnCapt. Travis Millerrn985-981-6434rnmiller-timefishingcharters.com

Scouting
Since I've been off the water since the freeze this past weekend and with temperatures soaring I thought it would be a good idea to see what was going on before my next set of charters. Capt. RD joined me this afternoon. Think we left at around 2 and headed for some deep water. The idea was to work deep to shallow. My first cast produced a keeper trout in about 5ft of water with the Matrix Shad Shrimp Creole under a cork. With the wind blowing in our faces and a falling tide we made a few more cast and decided to head to deeper water to check and then come back and drift with the wind. No fish were caught in the deep water. When we drifted back over our first stop we started picking up some keepers but there were a lot of throwbacks. We didn't stay long and decided to make a long run to check out an area I like to fish but because it's out of the way I don't always like to take the time during a trip to make the run. We caught 1 in the area after a couple moves and decided not to waste anymore time. With only planning on fishing for another hour we headed more south and set up shop on a 2ft deep reef. The trout were piled up and most were 14-18 inches. They were loving the Glow and Ultraviolet Matrix tightlined. The trip was successful for 2 reasons, first we found out where the fish were hiding and second, we found out where they weren't so we wouldn't waste time in the near future.rnrnCapt.

Bite went fromFreezing to Hot
It was another freezing morning on the Bayou. Bobby Spradling's crew were ready for day two. With icicles on the hoses on the dock we rolled down the bayou in extremely low water conditions at around 8:30. Since the bite yesterday was so good we headed straight back today. Capt. Austin helped me out with the second boat and got a head start on me. As we rolled in to our spot Austin had already put a few on ice. We worked around and caught a few but it didn't look like the bite was going to be as hot as yesterday. With the guys wanting to head home in just a few hours the strategy was to grind on the reds until it was time to head in. After about 2 hours of just a couple fish the water temp hit 46 and it was game on. The guys put on a clinic with plenty of double hook ups. With the fish biting so good and only needed a handful more we stayed past our time we had planned to head in until we hit the magical number. Thanks Capt. Austin for putting the guys on a full box of reds too.rnrnCapt. Travis Millerrn985-981-6434rnmiller-timefishingcharters.com

Hypothermic Redfish
I get a lot of people on my boat that always say I have the best job. I often agree but tell them sometimes it's not as sexy as it sounds. Today was a great example, while people were all snuggled on the couch with the fireplace burning hot I was out on the water with the air temp being around 28 degrees even after we slept in. With the 20mph winds I'll just say it was COLD. Bobby Spradling was back down from Texas with a bunch of Cowboys that were obviously mad at the fish. The water level was as low as I've ever seen it. Definitely not a place anyone should try fishing if they are unfamiliar with the territory. We all slept in and had a good breakfast before we headed out. With not a lot of options we hid the best we could and found really dirty water. Luckily the reds were hungry. We put 12 in the K2 quick then nothing for a while. I made a move and found nothing. I made one more move and that's all she wrote. The reds were in the mud willing to eat our Glow and Ultraviolet Matrix worked dead slow. When we got back to the Reel Inn everything was still frozen and will probably stay frozen until Monday. You really have to be mad at them to go fishing this weekend but if you do dress in multiple layers. We've been back at the camp for a few hours and I'm just starting to feel my toes. Thanks Capt. Marty for helping me out with the big crew.rnrnCapt. Travis Millerrn985-981-6434rnMiller-timefishingcharters.com

Celebrity on board
It's not everyday I get a celebrity on the Bluewave but the infamous Chris Ginn joined me this morning. I've known Chris for over 10 years and we used to work together so we try to get together once a year to do a fishing trip. Last week when Chris text me about a trip we decided Wednesday would be a great weather day. Of course that was what we had hoped for but reality is reality and we had 15-20mph winds. We ended up having a great day even with the windy conditions so be on the look out for Chris's article in Louisiana Sportsman Magazine. rnrnCapt.

'Weather Vacation'
The nasty weather gave me a little vacation so it was nice to get back on the water. Danny Gallman along with Mitchell, Chris, and Greg came in from Walker. The guys were excited to get going and I wasn't sure what the bite would be like since the winds had been fierce the past couple of days. I chose to go deep into the marsh where I was pretty confident the water would be clean and the biggest question mark was if the trout would be stacked up since the water temperature was up around 67. It took us a few minutes to figure that the trout were on a shallow ledge with deep water nearby. We caught 15 real quick and then they either disappeared or stopped feeding. I trolled around trying to find the school but they were gone so we moved. Same thing happened at our next stop. Guys were reeling them every cast for about 20 fish and then bang the bite was over. So that was the common theme so we would stick and move all day. The fish weren't picky in terms of hitting a tightline or a Matrix under a cork. The one common theme were these fish were all in shallow water near deep water. rnrnCapt. Travis Millerrn985-981-6434rnMiller-timefishingcharters.com

Father/son time
Mike Williams came in from Georgia for some Father/son time. They only had a few hours to fish and unfortunately the weather with the front coming they and fish didn't cooperate. We only found a dozen or so trout that wanted to play before we had to head in.rnrnCapt. Travis Millerrn985-981-6434rnmiller-timefishingcharters.com

Foggy Foggy Foggy
Joey, Chip, and Ray joined me for a foggy morning. I really hate running in fog but I do like fishing in it. We found a slow bite with a mix of throwbacks in there. The warmer water temp seem to have these trout on the move which is making it hard to target them because the area you have to cover. You can't just say it's December so they should be in the marsh because with the water temp at 70 degrees these fish are in the marsh and lakes so you have to go find them. That's what we did making numerous stops mainly catching our fish in 2-4ft of water tightlined with Glow or Ultraviolet Matrix and Blueback tsunamis. rnrnCapt.
