Helped out Capt Travis on this trip. Tough fishing the last few days, between the sharks, trout not wanting to bite and 100’s of gaff tops. Lots of running around. Thanks Capt’s Shawn and Jared for taking care of Drew and Craig’s crew for me. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Gaiennie Lumber crew was here for their second trip of the year. We wasn’t sure about the weather but we woke up and skies looked clear. We found pretty water and started catching right away on double rigged Matrix Shad. The problem was the sharks were so bad it was hard to get the fish in the boat. If you didn’t have them skipping across the surface they were eaten. We managed what we could then the bite completely shut off. We waited patiently but they never turned back on. Storms were building around us so we headed back to the dock. Thanks to Capt Travis and Shawn for running the two other boats. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Day two with Wesley/Kelley Carambat and Durel/Anne Matherne was a little bit slower than day one, but we still put a good lick on the specks. No hot fast and furious bite, but a slow steady one. Double rigged Matrix Shad like always accounted for all of our fish. We stayed dry all day too, despite all the storms that have been around. Great two days with these families, thanks again for the continued business and friendships. Thanks Capt T Miller for taking care of the kids, they had a great day. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Wesley and Kelley Carambat and girls were back with me on their annual trip. The bite was off the charts!! We left the fish biting everycast, as they ate up our double rigged Matrix Shad like crazy. A school of bull reds came through while trout fishing and hit every line, we landed two of them. Incredible day!! Thanks Capt T Miller for running the second boat with Durel and Anne Matherne, they also crushed the specks. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Chip Legget and family joined me on a wet stormy day! We dodged storms, went through a storm and caught some Trout!! We got ate up by sharks bad, but still managed to put a mess together through it all. Double rigged Matrix Shad as always did the trick. Good times with you, thanks. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Finally a calm day for once!! We found clean water and the trout responded. Double rigged Matrix Shad busted the specks up as usual and we left them biting. Big sharks showing up eating your trout if you don’t get them in quick enough. Good time with my son and friend Allen Robichaux. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Roy Carroway from Texas was back with a big group for three days. Day 1 was two boats out, myself and Capt T went look for trout early but found rough seas and dirty water. We quickly switched to plan B, and went look for reds. More dirty water, wind and then the sky turned black. Not much to show on day 1 Day 2 we had six boats out, artificial, shrimp under corks, and cracked crab put some reds and drum in the box. A few lost specks also made the team. Much better day and everyone had a blast. Day 3 found the same thing with most all boats putting reds and drum in the box. We had two boats that found decent catches of trout. Again, the crew had the time of their lives. Despite the terrible conditions the last few days, we made it happen for the guys. Thanks Roy for the continued business. Thanks Capt’s Travis, Kevin, Jared, Lonnie, and Austin for helping with the other boats. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Good customer Wayne Forrestor and family was back with me. High winds made it tough for us. We had to retreat to protected areas and boats were out in full force. Every place we stopped we were surrounded by boats which made it very tough to fish. We made the best of the situation and did what we could. Always a fun time with Wayne and his family. Thanks again for the continued business and friendship over the last couple years. Thanks Capt T for running the second boat 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Will Coates from Missouri and his buddies jumped onboard the big 2600 Blue Wave Boats. We dropped the hammer on the specks!! We had them coming in two at a time every cast on Matrix Shad as usual!! Another incredible morning busting the specks. We left the specks to try for a few reds and we ended with one. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Blake Monrose, Sy Arceneaux and guest from Oklahoma joined me onboard the big 26ft Blue Wave Boats and experienced a EPIC bite. It was fish on everycast as soon as the baits would hit the water. Mostly all doubles with a few singles as the second fish would drop off. The bite was straight up insane as they ate up our Matrix Shad like crazy. One of the second fastest bites of the year. Thanks again guys for one fun amazing day. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Wayne and Brenda Forrestor were back with their grand son and had another incredible day of catching!! Water was dirty when we pulled up and started fishing, but started to clean up within 30 minutes. The fish started jumping into the Blue Wave Boats 1-2 at a time on our double rigged Matrix Shad. Always a pleasure fishing with you guys, thanks. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Helped out Capt T with the BUMS crew. We started out the morning fishing for trout, but with the winds and seas up it didn’t work out. Plan B was put into affect and the green hornet Matrix Shad went to work. My crew put 20 reds in the box in no time, good times. Thanks Capt T for setting it up. Big thanks to Capt’s Kevin, Shawn, and Austin for taking care of Tom Albrighton’s crew. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Day 2 with Duke Staples and crew was even better then day 1!! We got on a fast and furious every cast bite filling up the belly of the beast by 8 am. We left the trout grounds to go look for some reds. The guys hooked 7 reds, putting 4 of them in the boat within a hour or so. Two incredible days for sure for these guys. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Day 1 with Duke Staples and crew on the big Blue Wave Boats was incredible. Finally had calm seas and the trout bite was insane. The big trout went crazy eating up our double rigged Matrix Shad. My youngest son Cade got to hop on board with us and join in the fun. Definitely a trip for the memory books!! 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Sammy Neely’s family came onboard the big 2600 Blue Wave Boats and smashed the specks. We hit the mother load of specks and had them coming in every cast on double rigged Matrix Shad.

Long time customer and friend Robert Utrera was back down with us with two boats running. The specks ate up our double rigged Matrix Shad as usual.

Day 2 with Zack Patterson and crew was even better then day 1. We did get off to a slow start, but we made a move and it was on. We had doubles and singles flying over the gunnels filling the belly of the big 2600 Blue Wave Boats. Double rigged Matrix Shad continues to fill the boat. Big thanks to Capt’s Kevin and Shawn for taking care of Josh Droegemueller’s crew. They both had great catches and big smiles from everyone. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Little behind......Saturday, Day 3 of the Houma Oilmans we woke up to rain, thunderstorms and high winds. We stayed in bed and got up around 7 am. Three of the six boats went out. Capt Jared found a few trout for the Oilstates guys he had. Capt Travis got the Oklahoma guys that fished with me on Day 1/2 on some bulls and they had a blast. I fished reds for a hour or so with my crew, then they called it quits. Sunday was a day off. Monday, David Thibodaux’s Texas crew found a slow bite on trout catching 31 in the wind. Tuesday, Tom Albrighton’s crew on Day 1 found a dead slow lock jaw bite. 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.
