Joe McDonald and family were back with me once again this year. What a special day it was for them!! The trout ate up our Green Hornet Matrix Shad tight lined, and they caught their first ever Louisiana trout limit. Little 7 yr old Preston had a blast reeling in trout after trout. Once we had our limit Preston was dead set on catching some sheep head (he had a blast last year catching them). We dropped some shrimp to test the waters and they ended up with 5 before we called it a day. Great time and many memories made, thanks again. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Good times filling up the box on a meat haul trip with new customers. We spent the first couple hours of the morning searching for trout, with not much luck. Plan B was put in place and off we went soaking shrimp for whatever bit. We found a combination of reds, heads, and pup drum. The heads were the thickest and had my guys on a every cast bite with lots of laughs and a good time. Thanks Troy for business. Big thanks to Capt Kevin Labat for running the second boat. They ended up getting on a hot run of reds and guys had a blast. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Good customer Petey Kern and crew were back with me onboard the Bluewave. It was fish on at all four stops today. Green Hornet Matrix Shad tight lined put a hurt on the specks fishing current lines. Always a pleasure having these guys with me, thanks for the continued business. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Fun morning with my two boys. Caught fish all morning and kept 25 to eat and released the rest. Green hornet Matrix Shad tight lined and shrimp creole under a Four Horsemen Tackle cork is all you need. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Day one with the Texas crew had a slow start in the thick fog, but we ended up putting a few in the K2 Coolers on green hornet Matrix Shad tight lined. Great day catching on day two with my Texas crew. Green hornet Matrix Shad tight lined did the trick once again. Thanks Capt T Miller for setting it up 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Tom Yakuvovich and wife were back on the Bluewave. Post front with high winds and dirty water made it tough. Nothing wanted to bite most of the day, then finally them bay snapper turned on!!! They kept me busy as they had the fish coming in every cast for a good while. We must have threw back 20 plus puppy drum that were too small. Ended up with a nice mess of fillets and happy customers. Thanks again. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Good times with Mr Nicholson and Kelly. The trout bite was slow, so we went to plan B which was “catching”. They caught bay snapper, reds, fresh water catfish, drum, and a flounder. We ended the day soaking crabs to try and get Kelly her first ever bull red....success!! She hooked a real nice red and was super excited. After that they doubled up on drum. Fun time was had, thanks again. Big thanks to Leonard Adkins and Zach Adkins for the awesome groceries, everything was delicious. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Had the crew from Andrew’s and Sons onboard. We started the morning off slow, with no tide and not much happening. We made a move and got on a good run of specks tight lining the Green hornet Matrix Shad and on shrimp creole under a Four Horsemen Tackle cork. We hit a few points and current lines and ended up with a great catch. Fun time with these guys. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

John Tobolski from New Jersey was in town on business. He jumped on the Blue Wave Boats with me for a catch and release trip, since he could not bring any fish back with him. We had a good run of trout in the morning catching on green Hornet Matrix Shad tight lined. Mid day we found more trout tight lining and under a Four Horsemen Tackle cork. We left the trout biting to go drop shrimp on the bottom. John reeled in flounder, channel cats, and plenty bay snapper....It was every cast until he quit. One last stop on our way in found more trout. Beautiful day to be on the water. I kept some trout and dropped them off to my parents, made their day!! 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Ladies crew today on the Bluewave. We tried for trout first thing in the morning, only finding a few. With extremely low water, high winds and all the odd stacked against us.....I decided to take the ladies “catching”. Fresh shrimp on a jig head had the bay snapper coming in one after the other. The ladies kept me busy, as they were reeling in fish almost every cast. Plenty laughs and cutting up with these ladies as they filled up the K2 Coolers. Thanks Capt Shawn P for setting it all up. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Little slower day with Chuck Bourque’s crew. High winds and disrespectful boaters everywhere made is tough. The trout turned on and off within 15 minutes. Green Hornet Matrix Shad tight lined produced all our fish once again. Chuck called it at 10am with the bite being dead and they had plans later in the day. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Great day busting up the specks with Mark Ogier from Arkansas. Green Hornet Matrix Shad tight lined put the hurt on them. Always a good time catching when Mark is onboard. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Day one with Wesley, Kelley, Sarah, and Ava Carambat was fun as always. We had a great night at the camp boiling seafood. We started catching trout right away at our first stop on green hornet Matrix Shad tight lined. This was the most productive method all day for us. The girls laughed, joked, and even took a good nap!! Always a pleasure hanging out and fishing with this family. Thanks again for everything. The gumbo was awesome too!!!! Day two with the Carambat’s!! We got off to a good bite this morning tight lining Green Hornet Matrix Shad in the strong current. We were on a steady bite the first 30-45 minutes of the morning then like a switch it was over. We bounced around the rest of the morning catching 2-5 trout per stop, putting together a good table of fish. Always a good time when this crew is on the Blue Wave. Thanks again and look forward to seeing you next year. Thanks Capt T Miller for running the second boat with the Matherne’s. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Keith Lirette with LCR was back again on the Blue Wave Boats. Tough post front conditions had the fish in lock jaw mode. We worked hard and covered some water, never finding a good bite. Shrimp Creole and glow Matrix Shad under a Four Horsemen Tackle cork accounted for all of our fish. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Jack Legendre and crew were back on the Blue Wave Boats. We zigged when we should have zagged. We ended the long limit out streak we had going, but still managed to come back and finish with a respectable catch. Always a fun time when Jack and crew are here. Thanks Capt T Miller for taking care of Brent Wards crew, they had a incredible time and smashed the trout. Thanks also to Chef Leonard and Zach for killing it in the kitchen. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Danny Lirette and wife were back with me on the Blue wave. It was another great day slamming the specks. Of course the green hornet Matrix Shad tight lined and shrimp Creole under a Four Horsemen Tackle cork we’re responsible for catching all fish. Always a pleasure when Danny comes, he’s like a lucky 🍀 charm. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Two man crew from Mississippi crushed the specks. Green Hornet Matrix Shad tightlined and shrimp Creole matrix under a Four Horsemen Tackle corks. The only baits you need!! Day two with my crew from Mississippi was even better then day one. The specks were pretty much just jumping in the boat. As usual green Hornet Matrix Shad and shrimp creole matrix under a Four Horsemen Tackle cork put the fish in a ice bath.  thanks Capt Miller for putting it together. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Pat Mcfarlain and Drew Mcfarlain were back onboard the Blue Wave Boats and experienced a magnificent bite. It was fish on from the first cast. Green Hornet Matrix Shad tight lined put the hurt on the specks as they couldn’t resist them. We had a couple reds mixed in as bonus. I offered to take them red fishing after our limit, and they declined. Back to the dock to clean fish and get a good well needed nap in!! Thanks guys for the continued business and off the charts trip. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Robert Utrera and the Anonymous crew joined me today on the Blue Wave Boats What a incredible morning smashing the yellow mouths!! The trout bite has exploded and is on fire! Lemon head Matrix Shad tight lined and under a Four Horsemen Tackle cork put a hurt on the specks. We caught over 200 trout keeping our 100 limit with a couple reds. Great weather and the trout bite has been off the charts. Thanks Robert for the continued business over all these years, it’s always a pleasure having you onboard.

Day one with Joe Simpson and family found cold, gloomy, wet conditions. We mainly focused on trout, but tried a few spots for reds and bay snapper too. We picked at trout at several stops, but never found any reds or a thick bay snapper bite. My crew were troopers and stuck out the miserable conditions with zero complaints. Lemon Head Matrix under a @fourhorsementackle cork caught most of our trout with shrimp Creole second. Thanks Joe for the continued business. Thanks Capt T Miller for running the second boat. Capt T’s crew found some reds and had a blast. Thanks to Chef’s Leonard and Zach Adkins for killin it in the kitchen. Day two with Joe Simpson and crew was off the charts!! What a difference a day makes. The trout ate up today like there was no tomorrow.....Literally!! The best trout bite I’ve seen this year. Green Hornet Matrix Shad tightlined and Lemon Head Matrix under a Four Horsemen Tackle cork crushed them. It was none stop catching as we put a clinic on the specks. My crew loved every second of it. Always a pleasure fishing with Joe and his family, thanks again. Big thanks to Capt T Miller, Capt K Labat, and Capt SP Whitney for running the other boats. The guys smashed the reds too!! Couldn’t do what we do without having the best guides in Dularge on our team. If you want to experience the best Dularge has to offer (guides, lodging, cooking, all inclusive) come check us out. We can accommodate groups up to 40 on site. Big or small we have you covered, no one else can compare. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

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.

Mostly all school trout right now, having to weed through hundreds of small fish. Seems like each day though more keepers are showing up.

A comment titled: Re: dularge trout and reds in response to a report titled: dularge trout and reds

Fish were showing up in the lakes last week when it was warm. The last few days with the big drop in water temps and high winds we couldn't fish the lakes. Finding protection and clean water was key. Weather is looking better for the weekend and winds will be somewhat calmer. Fish May between winter spots and spring spots. Finding clean water in protected areas will probably be your best bet, not sure if open water in the lakes will be clean or not. Good luck.

Wow. Apache could have some major law suits on their hands. Sure hope they get wind of it and eliminate the problem.

Hopefully Apache will take note and take care of the problem before they get presented with a law suit. Someone could really get hurt from this.

Found out it was Apache that plugged the well in 2010 and records show it was cut 15 inches below the mud line. Obviously the pipe was still sticking up a good 3 ft from the bottom when I hit it in 2012. I wonder how many other people have hit it since then.
