The weather has been crazy between high winds and storms everywhere. I helped out Capt. Marty for two days with Andre’s big crew. The guys had 2 great days using double rigged Matrix Shad. Thanks Capt for setting up the trips. Capt. Travis Miller 985-981-6434 Miller-timefishingcharters.com

Helped out Capt. Marty with Jack Legendre’s big crew. Brent Ward’s family jumped on the Bluewave with me. We had a slow start but after a few moves the guys hit the mother load. Double rigged Matrix Shad was the ticket. Capt. Travis Miller 985-981-6434 Miller-timefishingcharters.com

I helped out Capt. T Love with a great family. We took our time heading out and were met with choppy conditions, a rolling tide, and a ton of gaftops with some trout mixed in. The girls had the pink poles bent. We hung in there for maybe an hour or so before heading north for some reds. Thanks Capt Hook for taking care of Greg Bennett’s crew. Capt. Travis Miller Miller-timefishingcharters.com

It was lights out for Ryan and Holly Valentine and their friends Gerren and Heidi. Double rigged Matrix slimed up the Bluewave real good! Capt. Travis Miller Miller-timefishingcharters.com

John Dickinson was back on the Bluewave with Connor, David and Jr. We had high current making it a bit of a challenge but the guys figured out how to present the bait and put together a night box of trout on double rigged Matrix Shad. Capt. Travis Miller Miller-timefishingcharters.com

Day 2 with Madison and Avery but Trace their dad switched up and joined us on the Bluewave. We braved the high winds knowing they were supposed to settle down. We found some dingy water to start and had to move around which was difficult with the seas but we found a sweet spot hold some trout. Unfortunately, as we were catching Avery wasn’t fairing so well with the motion sickness so we ended up calling it an early day but not before we put a lil lick on the trout. Double rigged Matrix Shad did the trick. Thanks Capt. Marty for setting up the trip. Capt. Travis Miller Miller-timefishingcharters.com

Day 1 with Roy, Madison, and Avery again had us hiding from the wind. It’s been an extremely windy summer so far making us change up areas. We stuck to the live shrimp under a cork to put together a nice box of trout. Thanks Capt. Marty for setting up the trip. Capt. Travis Miller Miller-timefishingcharters.com

Kyle and Anna Efferson we’re back on the Bluewave and we had to deal with high winds again. We stuck to the live shrimp under a cork to put together a mess. Capt. Travis Miller Miller-timefishingcharters.com

July 13 at 1:17pm

Another day with high winds and with the dirty water in Dularge we took the safe route and picked up live shrimp and took the Bluewave into protected water. Kirby Gravois and crew got to work right away. Dealing with throwbacks all day but finishing with a good box of trout. Thanks Capt. Marty for running the second boat. Capt. Travis Miller Miller-timefishingcharters.com

July 13 at 1:15pm

Gaiennie Lumber’s crew was back and after a few days of cancelled trips due to terrible weather we took a shot. We grabbed some live shrimp “just in case”. We made the right choice as we found chocolate milk water and had to head east toward Cocodrie to find fishable water. After a long run the guys started catching. Had to pick threw a lot of throwbacks but the end result was plenty of trout for a fish fry. Thanks Capt. Marty for setting up the trip. Capt. Travis Miller 985-981-6434 Miller-timefishingcharters.com

Bums fishing crew came down to the REEL INN Dularge and with a suspect forecast we woke up and checked the radar. It was clear but by the time we got the BlueWave Boats ready we had storms to deal with. The guys really wanted to go so we made it happen and worked around the storms for the most part but we did get whacked by a good one. A ton of throwback drum and 10in reds but the guys were able to put together a good box of fish. Thanks Capts. T- Love and Hook for taking care of the other boats. Capt. Travis Miller 985-981-6434 Miller-timefishingcharters.com

July 05 at 5:24pm

Anonymous crew came in for a day of fishing. With 2 kids on the boat I opted to do shrimp Carolina rigged. We caught a bunch of fish with plenty of throwbacks along with a couple reds as lagniappe. Thanks Capt. Hook for taking care of Paul Caston’s crew. Capt. Travis Miller 985-981-6434 Miller-timefishingcharters.com

July 05 at 5:22pm

Helped out Capt. Marty with the Gaiennie crew. Jay, Jeremy, Jamie, and Trout drew the short straw and were stuck with me 🤣. The trash fish were fierce early but after moving around a bit we got on a good bite using double rigged Matrix Shad. Thanks Capt. Marty for setting up the trip. Capt. Travis Miller 985-981-6434 Miller-timefishingcharters.com

July 05 at 5:20pm

Ryan Valentine was back on the Bluewave with his wife Holly and friends Brady and Erica. Beautiful conditions made for some hungry trout. We had to deal with some trash fish but the end results were good. Double rigged Matrix Shad was the ticket. Capt. Travis Miller 985-981-6434 Miller-timefishingcharters.com

July 01 at 8:19am

Scott King was back with a few buddies. We hopped on the Bluewave and headed south. The water had gotten so clean we had to deal with a lot of trash fish but chunking double rigged Matrix Shad put a good mess together. Capt. Travis Miller 985-981-6434 Miller-timefishingcharters.com

July 01 at 8:17am

Jeff Beatty was back on the Bluewave with his family. They got pretty good conditions and the bigger trout cooperated on double rigged Matrix Shad. Capt. Travis Miller Miller-timefishingcharters.com

July 01 at 8:14am

Mario Vice’s crew were back on the Bluewave and although the weatherman said it was going to be calm that didn’t pan out but it wasn’t too bad out there. The Xi5 held us where we needed to be. Double rigged Matrix Shad did the trick in Shrimp Creole and Avocado and the trout ran on the big side which makes it a lot of fun. Hope everyone has a Happy Father’s Day!!! Capt. Travis Miller 985-981-6434 Miller-timefishingcharters.com

July 01 at 8:12am

Day 2 for Tracy Hilburn and his wife had us get to the honey hole where we smacked them the day before but only to find throwbacks. With a completely missed forecast we got into open water and fortunately put together a nice mess on double rigged Matrix before we took it back to the Reel Inn so they could get back to Monroe at a reasonable time. Thanks Capt. Marty for running the second boat and Capt. Shaw P for taking care of Linn Standridge’s crew. Capt. Travis Miller Miller-timefishingcharters.com

June 22 at 2:08pm

Post storm we had a front come thru a few days after and made for a really windy day. 15-20mph winds out of the north had us hiding. Tracy Hilburn and his wife Judy joined me on the Bluewave. Took us a little while to find them but once we did we dropped the hammer down. Double rigged Matrix Shad was the ticket. Thanks Capt. Marty for running the second boat and Capt. Shawn P for taking care of Steve Sasser and Mary. Capt. Travis Miller Miller-timefishingcharters.com

June 22 at 2:04pm

Neal Weller and his 2 boys were down. We had perfect weather conditions but little tide so we had to stay patient. The fish would come in spurts but at the end of the day double rigged Matrix filled the K2 and had the Bluewave headed north. Capt. Travis Miller Miller-timefishingcharters.com

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.

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

The water is owned by the public. If a landowner didn’t allow it to come onto his/her property there would be no issue. With erosion, property owners haven’t lost their land because they still own it but what they have done is taken ownership of publicly owned water.

April 10, 2018 at 3:19pm

Pick any of the lakes and get on the leeward side and start drifting. We did catch the best when we ran into pockets of mullet. When you catch one put the Powerpole down and give it a few catch. Might find a little pile especially with the drum.
