I’ve been MIA on reports for a while but we’ve been fishing and catching. Large groups and small groups. Here are some pics from our Dairy Farmers crew that fished for 3 days. If you’re interested in booking a trip give me a call or text. Capt. Travis Miller

I haven’t been doing a great job on reposts but we’ve been going at it and the trout fishing has been solid. Mother Nature has tested us causing a couple slower days but that’s fishing. Double rigged Matrix Shad has been the ticket in shrimp Creole, glow, avocado, and green hornet. Here are some pics from previous trips. Capt. Travis Miller

Josh Cockfield’s crew were back and they got to slime up the Bluewave real good. Even found a few reds. Double rigged Matrix Shad in Holy Joely and Ultra Violet were top colors. Capt. Travis Miller

May 20, 2021 at 10:30am

Lights out is how the trout bite was for Corey, Ryan, and Jason. Best bite of the year as the guys were slinging trout into the Bluewave so fast I had a hard time keeping up. Double rigged Matrix Shad was all we needed. Capt. Travis Miller

Byron, Eric and Ginger were with me for 2 days and the winds were pumping. Day one the forecast showed storms rolling in early so we caught a handful of trout then headed to the pass for some drag pullers and to be close to run for cover. Day 2 we had some high winds again and the guys were able to slim up the Bluewave using a mix of double rigged Matrix Shad and singles under a cork. Thanks Capt. Travis Lovell for setting the trip up. Capt. Travis Miller

May 20, 2021 at 10:27am

My anonymous crew slimed up the Bluewave real nice. Started off a bit windy so we stayed protected but as it calmed down we headed for open water. Shrimp Creole Matrix was the ticket. Capt. Travis Miller

May 12, 2021 at 3:14pm

Bob Jones’s crew were down at the Reel Inn ready to do some trout fishing. We woke up to of course raging winds. We loaded up the Bluewave and rolled out. Bob, Billy, and Eric were with me. We started really slow with only 4 trout in the box before we found them. We had a lot of throwbacks but the guys put together a great box of fish using shrimp Creole Matrix. We even caught a few doubles. Thanks Capts. Marty and Kevin for running the other boats. Capt. Travis Miller

May 12, 2021 at 3:11pm

Chris and Charmaine were back for their annual trip. We had calm conditions til about 9:30 before the wind was pumping like it’s been. They smacked the trout just in time then I took the Bluewave shallow and we picked up some reds and drum along with a nice flounder. Shrimp Creole Matrix under a cork and tightlined worked the trout over. Capt. Travis Miller

May 12, 2021 at 3:10pm

After a few days of cancellation I was back on the water and the wind was down but not as calm as the weatherman said it would be. And by the amount of boats everyone thought today was the day to fish. We still have a lot of dirty water but Ron DeArmon’s crew overcame a slow start to slime up the Bluewave. Shrimp Creole fished in dirty water and under a cork did the trick. Thanks Capt. Marty for taking care of Jack Bowles crew. Capt. Travis Miller

May 12, 2021 at 3:08pm

Nelson Trahan won a free trip by entering a contest with the Charter Boat Association a while ago. I was finally able to get him and Nicki on the Bluewave. They took care of the trout just in time before the wind really got going. Nelson caught all his trout using the Matrix X Shad while Nicki stuck to traditional Matrix under a Texas Swing cork. Capt. Travis Miller

May 03, 2021 at 1:13pm

Day 2 on the Bluewave with Bryan, Sammy, and Ben was a good one. The guys knocked out the trout quick with Glow Matrix Shad and then picked off a few reds before taking it back to the Reel Inn. Capt. Travis Miller

May 03, 2021 at 1:11pm

Day 1 for Bryan, Sammy, and Ben. We had to wait for the rain to pass and with the wind pumping we found a lot of dirty water. We were able to find a pocket of “cleaner” water and the trout were hungry. As the day went on with the incoming tide the bite and water got better. We started with the shrimp Creole Matrix Shad but switched over to a Glow Matrix. Capt. Travis Miller

May 03, 2021 at 1:10pm

Mike Miller and crew joined me on the Bluewave Wednesday. I knew we were in good shape when MB showed up with her baitcaster and a Duckett rod. We had about 2 hours before the wind broke loose. The crew took care of business using Shrimp Creole Matrix Shad under a cork. Capt. Travis Miller

May 03, 2021 at 1:08pm

Guy and Darlene were back from North Mississippi and we found tik tik fog but it was by far the calmest day I’ve seen in a long time so we took advantage of it. We smacked the trout then hit 2 banks for a few reds. Shrimp Creole Matrix under a Texas Swing cork got the trout and chatterbaits and spinnerbaits got the reds. Capt. Travis Miller

April 17, 2021 at 3:16pm

Todd Melancon’s crew got perfect pre-front conditions and slimed up the new Bluewave. They had the Zebco reels screaming! The trout would only touch Matrix under a cork. Capt. Travis Miller

April 17, 2021 at 3:11pm

Lee Jacobs and his boys got to fish in some of the windiest conditions we will fish in. No telling how hard the gusts were but we left out the Reel Inn with 22mph winds and it quickly built. We did our best fishing protected areas and came out with a really nice box of trout using a mix of Green Hornet Matrix tightlined and the shrimp Creole under a cork. Thanks Capt. Marty for taking care of the second boat. Capt. Travis Miller

April 17, 2021 at 3:09pm

I’ve been really bad at putting up reports but we have been rolling down in Dularge. Here are some pics from Frank Kolwe’s trip, Dennis Lytle, and Ronnie Rosenson trip. Shrimp Creole Matrix Shad under a cork had been the ticket.

April 17, 2021 at 3:07pm

Tristan, Dustin, and Doug were down from Monroe on Friday and the guys got the perfect day 😂. Nothing like fishing after a day of 35mph wind out the south then a day of 25mph out the north but the guys had a good mindset and we pulled it off. With the wind still pumping, low low dirty water, we hit a few trout to start then wore the guys out on the big fish til we ran out of crabs. Then on the way in we hit a few more trout. Capt. Travis Miller

March 30, 2021 at 3:29pm

Day 2 for Alex Barham’s crew. After a dinner of crawfish pie and some blueberry cobbler the guys got a good night sleep at the Reel Inn Dularge. Walked across the road and jumped on the Bluewave. We got about an hour in before the gale force winds started. We fished for about another hour before the guys called so they could get on the road north to beat the bad weather. Green Hornet Matrix Shad and gold spoons put the reds and a few trout in the K2. Thanks Leonard for keeping the guys fed with incredible food. Capt. Travis Miller

March 30, 2021 at 3:26pm

Day 1 with Alex Barham’s crew was great. The guys slept well at the Reel Inn and woke up to a breakfast cooked by Leonard. Wind was up but trout was the plan. We had to move around to make it happen but at the end of the day we had a box full of solid trout with the biggest hitting 19in. Shrimp Creole Matrix under a cork and the Green Hornet tightlined was all we needed Capt. Travis Miller

You can still catch them in lakes especially the further north you go like Decade but they are also in the winter pattern in the marsh further south you go.

This is Dularge. I’m guessing you can search grand isle reports.

Instead of just “saying” guides catch all the fish and are ruining our resource and they are to blame for the drops here is some data from WLF. Recreational fishermen account for 84% while guides account for 16%.

A comment titled: Re: Fishing an incoming tide in response to a report titled: Fishing an incoming tide

I typically fish wind conditions more than tides. Basically meaning I’m fishing leeward sides of lakes and bays unless there is no wind or very little. As long as the tide is moving I’m usually happy. With that said if there is no wind or very little wind and I can fish anywhere, I usually focus more on prominent points rather than cuts, reefs that are located more away from cuts or in the middle of lakes and bays, and if I do fish cuts I’ll fish them on south side of lakes and bays where the water is flowing into a lake or bay. What I find mostly this time of year the trout will feed more heavily on falling tides so regardless of what you’re doing on an incoming tide the bite might not be as good. I typically find trout stack up on falling tides in or very close to cuts that have water coming out of the marsh and feed heavy on shrimp, as the tide slows, those fish spread out. So if you have a reef 100 yards away from a cut I typically will find a better bite on incoming tides in those areas. If all else fails don’t over analyze it, keep moving trying different methods and when you find one that works try to mimic what you did.

A comment titled: Re: Beautiful sight! in response to a report titled: Beautiful sight!

March is a transition month for trout so try to think of the highways they travel into the marsh because they are working their way out into the lakes and toward the Gulf to spawn. Crazy thing is right now trout are being caught in the marsh, in the lakes, and offshore but you have to be willing to move around and find them. Weather typically dictates where you can fish in March. Hard south winds you fish south ends of all the lakes, north winds you fish the north sides and so on. Hope that helps.

Sheepshead definitely get a bad name. Most clients either tell me they haven’t had them before or like them but don’t like cleaning them. But when you have me cleaning them I always say load the box 😂

A comment titled: Re: Redfish Weather in response to a report titled: Redfish Weather

Redfishing was really easy up to about 2 weeks and then it got inconsistent. As it gets warmer I typically do both, hit points and cuts and deeper water ways. I will usually make a circle and depending on where I’m at is what I will throw. One thing I do find is as it gets warmer the larger reds will go deeper while the 16-20inch reds will offer stay in the shallows.

A comment titled: Re: HB 391 in response to a report titled: HB 391

The water is publicly owned so the difference between other animals is that the fish wouldn’t be able to go onto/over a person’s land if the land owner cared for his/her property and didn’t allow something publicly owned to go onto its property. A deer travels on land so it can move. Hope that makes sense. Lol They did add amendments to the bill to protect duck hunters.
1. No access during duck season
2. Gates that were properly permitted prior to March 2, 2018 are allowed to stay.
3. No destruction to surface vegetation

#3 addresses the air boat and mud boats tearing up a grassing duck pond.
