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.

Outnumbered by the Ladies
I helped Capt. Marty out this morning with a big family group. Ashton and I were outnumbered by his two sisters and girlfriend. We had a windy day in store for us so we hid all day in the marsh. Our best bite came over a 2ft deep reef but nothing came fast and furious and there were plenty of throwbacks. With the grind it out type of bite we moved a lot and pretty much found something to bite at each stop. At the end of the day Ashton and the ladies put together a nice box. Glow and Ultra Violet Matrix under a cork and tightlined worked best.rnrnCapt. Travis Millerrn985-981-6434rnmiller-timefishingcharters.com

Love to watch my girls catch
I got to take my two girls out with their paw paw for a quick afternoon trip. The girls like boat riding more than fishing but they are good sports in small doses. When they get bored we roll which usually means even if we are catching they are good for 15 minutes per stop. Since we have plenty of fish we practiced catch and release. The girls each caught a few trout and Zoe got to battle a lost bull red. rnrnCapt. Travis Millerrn985-981-6434rnMiller-timefishingcharters.com

Silver Bells with some green footballs
I got to fish the last two mornings with Earl and Mike and the bite couldn't have been any better. On day 1 we found the trout stacked up on a flat with them hitting the Glow Matrix under a cork. We put around 40 on ice before we had to drift 100 plus yards to catch another 10 before we were surrounded by boats. With not being able to make full cast all around the boat I couldn't take it so we drifted toward the way the boats came at us on step and where we caught our first 40 to finish it off every cast. Just glad the boats really wanted the 'spot' that they passed all the fish up. On day 2 we headed back to where we caught them the first day only to find a bunch of throwbacks. We stuck around a dozen keepers before we had to move to look for keeper fish. It's always hard to leave biting fish but when they are throwbacks you have to do it. We headed north and we found them stacked. Didn't take long for us to fill the K2 fishing the Glow Matrix tightlined. Since it was early I told the guys we would go search for some bass. We threw on some avocado brush hogs and found the green footballs stacked up in a little cove. Just an amazing day especially since it was completely opposite in terms of boat traffic. Merry Christmas to everyone!rnrnCapt. Travis Millerrn985-981-6434rnmiller-timefishingcharters.com

Quick late morning solo trip
I was supposed to fish with Kevin Ford this morning but things didn't pan out so I slept in and decided on a late morning trip. I originally started off checking a few sheephead holes because I have my family coming down to the camp for Christmas and thought if they were stacked up it would be easy fishing for the kids and old folks. Unfortunately for them but fortunately for me the heads were no where to be found after 3 stops so the family is going to have to suffer and go trout fishing with me. lol I switch gears and It took a couple of stops for me to find the trout but once I did, the specks up to 18 inches were stacked up. Glow Matrix under a cork and tightlined worked them over as the fish didn't care how the bait was presented. After I finished up with the trout I headed north and found the bass stacked also.it worked out great because I was able to get back to the Reel Inn and get cleaned up before the family got here. rnrnCapt.

Masson boys come south
It's that time of the year when the charter business slows because a lot of our clients are in deer stands or duck blinds and the average Joe doesn't like cold weather and unfortunately for them the fishing is usually fantastic. Due to the slowing down of business a lot of fishing guides get 'play' instead of 'work'. It has been over a year since good buddies Todd and Joel Masson came down to fish so we set up an afternoon trip. The weather was beautiful only requiring a sweatshirt and with the sun high in the sky the water temperature was on the rise. The only negative factor was very little tide. I started off with a fish on my first cast which always gives me mixed emotions but it was followed up with many more. We had a lot of throwbacks mixed in with our keepers. We focused on flats near deeper water and found the smaller fish were really shallow while the better fish were in about 3-5ft of water. We left fish to go look for fish which I normally wouldn't do but I was 'playing' so I can do that. Todd mainly stayed on the camera while Joel and I put a hurt on the specks. I'll post Todd's story from Nola.com when he finishes it. Glow Matrix under a cork was the top dog although the blueback tsunamis did its share of damage. Thanks Todd and Joel for the good time.rnrnFor same day reports like us on Facebook:rnhttps://m.facebook.com/MillerTimeFishingChartersLlcrnrnCapt.
