Chris Simon and crew were back with us on this day! We ended up sleeping in and waiting for the rain to pass before leaving. We grinded them out on green Hornet Matrix Shad tight lined. Our two boats ended up with a good mess in horrible conditions. Thanks Capt Kevin Labat for running the second boat. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Pat and Drew Mcfarlain were back with me for two days. Day one was extremely tough not catching much. Day two was better as we found a little mess tight lining Green Hornet Matrix Shad before the rain hit. Thanks Capt Kevin Labat for taking care of Robert Utrera’s crew, they had a good time. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

David Tankersley crew from Texas was back with us even though David himself couldn’t make the trip due to recent back surgery. My two man crew smashed the specks using Shrimp TKO and Sea Sea Shad Matrix Shad under Four Horsemen Tackle corks. Another incredible morning on the new 2600 Blue Wave Boats. Thanks Capt T Miller for running the second boat busting up the specks too, great day for sure. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Day two with Mark Maclean and Tim Balin was on fire! We jumped right on the trout and had the belly of the beast filled early. The trout couldn’t resist our Shrimp TKO by Matrix Shad under Four Horsemen Tackle corks. Thanks guys for two awesome days. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Day one with good customers Mark Maclean and Tim Balin from Texas found 20-27 knot winds forecasted! We got lucky first thing in the morning as the winds were only blowing 15!! We hit a pile of specks right away and put a mess together. We made a few moves adding to the count. Shrimp TKO by Matrix Shad under Four Horsemen Tackle corks did the damage. Always a fun time with these guys. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Great day having Steve Jones back onboard on the new 2600 Blue Wave Boats on this day. The wind won’t stop blowing, but the fish are still biting. Green hornet Matrix Shad tightlined and shrimp creole Matrix under Four Horsemen Tackle corks put a good mess together. Thanks Capt Labat for running Dan Sullivan’s crew with Gaiennie Lumber in post Storm conditions. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Great day with Dean Simon, Scott Allemand and crew with Universal ComOne. The guys put a hurt on the fish using double rigged Matrix Shad and shrimp creole Matrix under Four Horsemen Tackle corks. Big thanks to Capt Kevin Labat for running the second boat and to Capt Lonnie Barr for taking care of Jay Leto’s crew...they whacked the fish hard!! Incredible day. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Ray Spurlock was back down with a crew new to saltwater fishing. We started off the morning with shrimp and trout busting all around the big Blue Wave Boats. The guys were learning to cast and lots of small fish mixed in, so not many fish made the box. We moved around a bunch after the shrimp bite quit, but found a few other flocks of birds and shrimp. Again, most all white trout and small specks. We found a lost puffer fish inside for the first time, a ribbon fish, a shark which made things interesting. Most fish caught under a Four Horsemen Tackle cork on various colors of Matrix Shad lures. It was a fun time with the guys, thanks Ray. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Long time customer Rick Woolsey and sons from California were back with me on the new 2600 Blue Wave Boats. Rick called me a few weeks ago and let me know about his dad Dick Woolsey who also has been fishing with me for 14 years. Mr Dick passed away and Rick knew how much he loved fishing with me down in Dularge and asked if he could come spread some of his ashes in his favorite fishing grounds. Well it was another incredible fast morning with Rick and the boys slamming the fish, then we said our farewells to Mr Dick. It was a honor to have known him and a honor to have Rick call me about it. Thanks guys, always a pleasure having you with me. RIP Mr Dick Woolsey 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Elliot Electric crew was back with us with four boats running. We were presented with high winds and boats all over the place. Small trout and tons of white trout at all our stops all morning. We put some miles on the big 2600 Blue Wave Boats searching high and low for a bite, but never found one. A couple lost reds and some keeper specks as my crew weren’t interested in keeping any white trout. Thanks guys for the continued business. Thanks Capt’s Kevin, Shawn, and Austin for running the other boats. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Chad Marler and son joined me on the big 2600 Blue Wave Boats for a incredible day of catching. Non stop catching the entire day on double rigged Matrix Shad. Some great memories made on this trip, thanks guys. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Steve Simpson brought his daughter and friend down for a day of fishing. High winds continue, but so does the catching. As always double rigged Matrix Shad and Matrix under a Four Horsemen Tackle cork produced all of our fish. It was a fun day and the girls caught plenty fish. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Bryant Dockins and son joined me on the Big Blue Wave Boats for a fun day of catching. It was still windy after the front, but the fish didn’t shut down. Double rigged Matrix Shad and Matrix under the Four Horsemen Tackle corks put them on ice. Great time and memories made, thanks guys. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

November 02 at 4:38am

Windy cold conditions with the front passing through slowed the bite down, but we still managed to put some fish on the table. Most fish caught on Shrimp Creole Matrix Shad under Four Horsemen Tackle corks. Thanks Capt T for setting things up. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

After rescheduling Paul Clouatre 3 times, we finally got our trip in. The guys jumped onboard the big 2600 Blue Wave Boats and smashed the specks!! The morning started off a bit slower than the past few days with no tide, but ended on fire!! Double rigged Matrix Shad put a hurt on the specks as they just can’t resist the Matrix. Thanks guys, I enjoyed slamming the fish with you!! 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Made a quick afternoon trip with a anonymous crew. Shrimp creole under Four Horsemen Tackle corks accounted for all our fish. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Sharky Burke and family from Mississippi joined me on the 2600 Blue Wave Boats for a incredible experience. From the time we made the first cast to the last cast, we had the specks jumping into the boat! Double rigged Matrix Shad tight lined and shrimp creole under Four Horsemen Tackle corks did the damage. Great time with you, thanks. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

No one is selling live shrimp in Dularge. You can buy live shrimp in Cocodrie or from the Tracie Macie bait boat depending where he Is located.

We left from my dock at the end of Dularge past Jugs. The tide was falling when we were on our best bite and water temperature was 64 degrees. We had a strong South wind so we had to stay protected on the South banks out of the wind, this is where we found the cleanest water also. Fish are starting to show back up on the inside waters (lake Mechant, Sister Lake, etc) all the way down to the coast. So far things are pointing to a good trout bite this Spring.

Mostly all school trout right now, having to weed through hundreds of small fish. Seems like each day though more keepers are showing up.
