I had Mike, his son Colton, and buddies Jason, & Patrick onboard. We started out with a slow bite, but the trout were absolute HAMMERS! We made a couple adjustments and got on a couple good runs before the bite shut off. We spent the rest of the morning shuffling around looking for a good…

I had the Tardiff’s onboard for their special anniversary trip. It started out slow, with dirty water, but we patiently waited for the tide to do its thing. Once the tide picked up, and the water cleaned up, we got on a steady run and made a nice box. Matrix shad double rigged got the job done.…

It's been about almost two months since I went to the lake from Theriot Boat Launch. Last time I went the entrance to the lake was almost completely blocked by a small floating island and a mass of lilies. I barely made it through into the lake. I guess there is no maintenance by the parish…

The Sikes family came down, from Missouri, to experience a little taste of “Sportsman’s Paradise”. The guys got a good night rest at the REEL INN Dularge and woke up ready for some action. We decided to leave a little later and chase bull reds first thing. The bull reds didn’t disappoint,…

Day 1 with Ben and Ed found us covering lots of water. Stick and move kind of day as we found no big concentration of fish in one area. Shrimp Creole and ultraviolet Matrix Shad under Four Horsemen Tackle corks accounted for all fish. Thanks again Ben for the continued business.…

A few highlights of a recent team tournament and the goal was the heaviest weight of 5 specks and 1 slot red. The heaviest weight of both team members would decide the winner. My partner got his 5 specks and 1 slot red. I pride myself in being able to find and catch reds but I am weak in the trout…
