Jay and Deanna Hasler came down from Indiana for their first Louisiana fishing trip. Great people and great times catching fish. Trout, pompano, redfish, jacks, channel mullets, sheepshead were all caught this day. At the first stop we had trout first but then the pompano took over and we caught 20 of them along with 14 trout before I said we needed to leave. They told me that they couldn't believe how much fish could be caught down here. I said you ain't seen nothing yet. Second stop thanks to Capt. Eric Pellegrin was the big ticket for the day. We had big trout coming in as fast as we could throw. Deanna was tossing live shrimp and Jim was steady at it with the Berkley Grass Pig in Swamp Gas color. Just then a school of reds and jacks come passing by and with 2 casts it was a red and a jack. Deanna had the jack and it took her about 45 minutes to land it. Biggest fish of her life. We left that spot and tested another spot and topped off the limit with a couple of trout. Deanna said she would like to see a rosette spoonbill so I went by the nesting island and there were about 50 of them there for her to see. What a way to show great people what South Louisiana has to offer. They will be back. Give me a call for your day on the water.

Duke Gallagher and Sonny Lovell came out to try their luck at catching some trout. they were not disappointed. It was on from the start with live shrimp under a sliding cork. At one point a school of big girls came by and they caught a few real nice ones. the largest going over 25 inches and weighted 6# on the boga grip. We also had some solid 3 pound fish. Thank You Mustad for making a great hook, #4 ultra point treble catches all the fish when using live shrimp. What to have a chance at a big one give me a call. I also put a picture of some trout to see the size difference from 12 to 25 inches.

A little catch up from the week of fishing. First on Thursday I had Aubrey Hyde and friends and did they ever tear up the fish. First it was trout and what a great trout bite it was. Also mixed in with the trout were some pompano. OH MY! what a great eating fish. With the appearance of the pompano we fished with live shrimp mostly, just to have that chance of catching them. The Berkley grass pig did catch some big girls though. After the trout were done we went after the reds and caught enough of them and ran in before the weather hit. Come get in on this fantastic bite, give me a call.

March 03 at 9:04am

The big girls came out to play on Friday for Brian DePaula and gang, and again the pompano were there. this day we caught 19 and even gave 3 of them to some fellow Skeeter fishermen. The largest trout went just over 4 pounds, you can see it next to the little 12.5' trout. Again we stuck to the live shrimp so we could catch some pompano. Brian and gang were with us last year on a pompano catch and told me that they weren't impressed with the flavor of them. I cleaned the fish at their camp so we had cooking facilities available. I cooked some fore them and it blew them away. They will not bad talk pompano again. Come Catch you some, give me a call.

On Sunday I had the pleasure of bringing Rusty and Hudson fishing. I wondered how the fish would react with the wind up and the fog thick, but it didn't take long. I didn't go to the honey hole because the wind was wrong so I tried some protected reefs and everyone we went to had trout on it. It sure was nice to see the numbers of small trout cause last year we didn't have very many. With little Hudson on the boat I brought live shrimp for the first time this year and it paid off for him. I always do what it takes to get the kids catching. It was amazing that the fish could find a 100 count shrimp in stained water so fast. Rusty asked about reds for Hudson and how close we were to a limit of trout. I told him we were at 44 in the box. He said lets get to 50 and go after the reds. by the time I turned around again we had 55 and shut it down. Stop #1 only produced drum around 15 pounds so I moved just a little and found the reds. Don't know how I missed taking a redfish picture but I attribute it to old age. At one point Hudson says that his hands and arms are hurting too much to catch any more fish. Music to my ears. That is how I know that I have a kid hooked on fishing for Life. Again the Berkley Rattle Shrimp in Coastal Candy was the plastic of choice with live shrimp catching their fair share. The trout fishing is real good right now so don't wait till summer come get you some now. Give me a call.

February 19 at 12:05pm

It was very foggy which made it tough to get around but we managed. Again the coastal candy Berkley Rattle shrimp did all the damage to the trout. After the trout we went looking for reds and found reds and drum. Check out the 12 & 1/4 inch trout next to the big one. This made for a great day catching out on the water. Come try your luck.

February 05 at 8:39am

On Friday I had the very Famous writer Steve McNemar lol on the boat and after a long cold ride out to the trout grounds we found only rough and dirty conditions so we actually turned the trip around and come home without catching anything. What a difference a day makes. After the trip on Friday I told Aubrey that we would leave an hour later because we probably would have to go toss cracked crab at bulls. On the ride out we found rough conditions but cleaner water so we decided to give the trout a chance. Man am I glad we did that. As soon as we started to cast Rattle Shrimp it was trout on. Also we tossed glow/chartreuse ripple shads. All under a cork this day as the wind hampered the tight-line style of fishing. Even with the wind Aubrey, Bobby, and Tucker had a great time catching real nice trout. For your day give me a call.

January 27 at 9:38am

What a ride, the trout bite the last 3 days was totally unreal. Trout on your line as soon as it would hit the water, and it didn't matter what you tossed. Berkley Rattle shrimp, rib shads, Grass pigs and top water. On the first day my son Capt Eric used my boat and did a number on the trout (125 by 7:38am) and my troll motor remote did a number on the motor. Big Thanks to Rip Tide Troll Motor Repair for coming out and getting me the parts needed to repair the motor Sunday evening. Thank You again Jon Patterson. It sure was nice to have been in the woods for 2 months and then come out on the water and have the fish waiting for you. I hope this is a sign of things to come. right now January 16th is the next day with a good forecast. Not to say that this will hold but get your dates booked for a chance at catching trout like this. If the weather is cold and bad we can do red fish if that is what you want. #customcharters, #pennfishing

The fishing has been great lately with lots of reds, drum and sheepshead and even a few trout to show. I'll let the pictures tell the story. Including a south Louisiana slam from Jenna Bergeron.

Great day yesterday with my good customer Bill Darsey and the famed Andy Crawford. We picked around for awhile and then I cracked and took them to the honey hole for some fast action. 75 in da box. Hey marsh man Todd Masson, Andy can actually catch A fish. Top water, live shrimp and plastic caught fish this day. Fishing well heads in the Pelto/Timbalier area.

Last Saturday, Brendan Botts along with his kids, Jordan and Buster wanted in on the great fishing down in Cocodrie, so off we went in the Skeeter. First stop was the bull red extravaganza, bulls everywhere and very hungry. They caught and released a few and off we went for some trout and they cooperated also. Although the bulls followed us and kept pestering Jordan all morning. Then the right one hit and when we netted the red I noticed it had a 'J' for a spot on the tail. Being the great taxidermist that he is Brendan decided to mount the tail for his daughter Jordan. Big Thanks to my son Capt Eric Pellegrin for the use of his boat and the help on this day. It was a great day with great people.

May 24, 2018 at 8:01am

Jason Mouliere, Brad and the wild boys came down for their 10 year in a row to fish with me and boy was it good for the kids. Trout as fast as we could toss for them and it was total controlled chaos as fish and kids were flying every direction. We had a system going, kid reels in a fish hands it to a grown up and goes get a shrimp. Shrimp gets cast out kid reels in and the process starts over. This went on for 75 trout, a few reds and drum, then the water got dirty and the bite stopped. The little ones Riley and Luke wanted to get in the water so I went bring them to the beach and let them out. What a day. Thanks guys for the continued business.

May 07, 2018 at 9:10am

Glen Taylor and friends came down for some good ole South Louisiana fish catching. It wasn't anything fast and furious but it was steady catching all day. Live shrimp did the task of convincing the fish to give up. Great people, thanks for a fun day of fishing.

May 07, 2018 at 8:13am

Jimmy, Tammy, and their son Dr. Matt got in on a beautiful day of trout catching. I called Jimmy yesterday and told him the bite is late so meet me at 9:30 in Cocodrie for the trip. They liked that just fine, and the timing was perfect, Tammie caught a trout on the very first cast. the bite was not fast and furious but steady. Lots of real nice fish with plenty in the 2# range. Largest went 2.85 on the scale at Bait House Seafood. Live shrimp remained the best bait because I am fishing in some very dirty water. At least it was calm today. Its trout time so come on down and get in on this bite.

April 25, 2018 at 9:15pm

Chick Schiller and gang came down to sample the fishing out of Cocodrie again this year and were not disappointed. First stop was to get some big reds and we checked that off pretty easy. Add a couple of drum and it was trout time. By now the wind was up to about 15 so we went looking for someplace to get in on the trout without getting beat up too bad. Well that didn't work because the trout wanted to be in the rough surf. We fished trout till we were taking too many waves over the bow and called it a day. the box was getting pretty full so it was not a bad time to go to the dock and get things cleaned up for the second day tomorrow with Chick. Live shrimp were the only way to go today with the very dirty water. Today we fished in water so dirty I couldn't believe I even stopped to try. It took very large shrimp to catch the trout using Carolina rigs. the big shrimp make more noise in the water so the trout could find them without being able to see them. Want in on the catching give me a call. Trip date was 4-23 and 24th

April 25, 2018 at 8:59pm

Look deep down this trouts mouth and you will see a Berkley Rattle Shrimp. this is from the catch on 4-11-2018. Just a little hint on what else besides live shrimp the trout are eating.

April 16, 2018 at 8:14am

The wind did not stop the trout from biting today monster shrimp catch big trout. Jimmy Gravois wanted in on the catching so off we went and put a smack on the extra large Cocodrie trout. 4 fish over 4 pounds, a few over 3 pounds, a lot over 2# and about 15 or so under 20 inches. Want in on this give me a call. Capt Tommy Pellegrin, Custom Charters LLC

I had Brian Depaula, Rick and Ricky on board the Skeeter down in Cocodrie on Friday for a great day of fishing. First stop was supposed to be for trout but the bull reds took over and wouldn't give up. I called my son Capt Eric over and he got in on the bulls also. He also started catching a few sheepshead but not fast. I left to go get some quick sheepshead in the box and Capt Eric Pellegrin stayed. We put a bunch of heads in the boat real fast and Eric called and said that the pompano started biting and he was catching a bunch of them. I took off and went back but only got in on the last few minutes of the bite. Eric ended up with 35 and we only had 6. I fired him as usual. Not supposed to catch more than Dad. Thanks to Capt Eric Pellegrin for taking care of Brad Burns and gang, and yes as usual Eric did out-fish his Dad. Give us a call for your trip of a lifetime.

March 11, 2018 at 9:51am

My good friend Bill Darcey got the call yesterday about the big trout that started biting and he dropped everything and came down for a super fish catching trip. Lots of 2.5 pound fish today with the largest going 4+ pounds on the Boga. We had 41 on ice when the bite slowed down. Havoc 5' Grass Pig in Swamp Gas color did it again today. What a great sight to see these big trout come up and head shake. You what in on catching some Louisiana Head Shakers give me a call.

February 16, 2018 at 8:20pm

Hugh Lebeouf and I did a little scouting today and found lots of reds but we found the trout and were rewarded with a bunch of fat ones. It's also worm time and all of the worms are on the surface with the fish feasting on them. The reds we caught today would spit up about 100 on the deck of the boat. Everywhere you would look you could see the backs of the fish out of the water foraging on these worms. This made for easy pickings. Berkley Powerbait Rib Shad 4.5' in swamp-gas color and the Havoc Grass Pig 5' in Swamp-gas did most of the work. I did have a lot of fun with the trout slapping the She Dog out of the water but it was more hits than catches with the top water. 4 to 5 strikes per cast was a lot of fun to watch. If you want to get in on catching some real nice trout right now give me a call. Capt Tommy Pellegrin 985-851-3304

Andrew, the trout fishing has been more like fishing and not catching. There are some trout around just not a lot of them. You are in the right area's so keep trying. also all the ones that my customers caught this week were on Berkley rattle shrimp under a cork in coastal candy color. try points cuts and reefs with current running on them just not too strong. don't pop the cork very hard.

Fish the Havoc just like any other swim bait. Just slow it down. We are bottom bouncing and the fish are hitting it on the fall. We are using a 1/4 or a 3/8 Black Bear Special jig head.

A comment titled: Re: Where to catch pogies in cocodrie? in response to a report titled: Where to catch pogies in cocodrie?

The one and only true way to find pogies is to look for the pelicans diving. If you see pelican bombing the water its a sure sign of pogies. Look for the little flicks of water when the pogie splashes the surface and be real quite and toss the net right in the school of them. A heavy net of at least 7 to 8 feet is needed. You can do some good with a small net but it difficult to get a bunch with a small net.

Its more in late winter and early to late spring locations that are holding fish right now. Shallow shell reefs are good because the water warms up there first.

All of Terrebonne Bay is good to run with a bay boat. The only bad place is the old Discrempsey Island and its surrounded by pilings.
There are lots of red fish, drum and sheepshead all over the bay.
