New customers Merlin Larmon and Pat Mcfarlain joined me today on the Blue Wave Boats. We left around 9 am and found a very slow bite. We picked at the specks and a few reds then made a move. We found the green trout stacked up and commenced to putting a hurt on them. Once the tide switched the trout started to come in the boat every-cast. The hot bite lasted 30 minutes then quit. Glow Matrix Shad slowly tight lined was the top producing bait for us. The guys caught trout, reds, bass, flounder, bay Snapper, and one big lost fresh water Blue Catfish!! Great time with these guys filling up the K2 Coolers, and I look forward to their return.

Doubled back this afternoon with my two man crew I had scheduled for tomorrow. My guys caught their fifty trout in 30 minutes and added a few green trout to the mix. The trout bite is literally as good as it gets right now. Glow Matrix Shad tightlined put a hurt on them. We had to leave the fish biting everycast! My crew said it was the best trout bite they have ever experienced!! Good times on the Blue Wave Boats

Kevin Kearny with Bell & McCoy was back with a crew on the Blue Wave Boats, the guys experienced the best trout bite of the year. Glow Matrix Shad tightlined put a hurt on the specks as it was lights out fast and furious action!! Always a pleasure fishing with these guys. Thanks so much for the continued business.

Now is the time to book your December and January trips. The bite has been insane.

Good customer Danny Lirette was back with me today with his brother in law. The guys crushed the fish all on Green Hornet Matrix Shad slowly tight lined, just doesn't get any better. The bite has been incredible and I expect the rest of December and January to be great. If you have waited all year to catch trout, now is the time to get your trip booked!!! Thanks Danny for the continued business, always a pleasure fishing with you.

This week will go down as the best trout fishing we have had all year long, the bite has been off the charts!!! I was able to take my youngest son Cade and his best friend Wes this morning, which I never get to do because I'm usually always working. These two boys busted up the specks all morning, what a awesome time I had watching them!! We kept 30 trout then left them biting to go scouting! Every fish caught today fell victim to the Green Hornet Matrix Shad tightlined, no fish under a cork. What a incredible morning making memories.

Easy as it gets this morning, as the specks were literally jumping into the K2 Coolers. Matrix Shad lures and Duce Rods put them in the boat. The specks have finally shown up in full force. December and January should be incredible, don't be left out looking at the pictures!!!

Good ole fashion 'meathaul' today. I thought the trout were going to respond today with the water temps where they should be, but they didn't. No problem, plan B went into effect!! The guys had a blast catching trout, reds, bass, and Bay Snapper. They went home loaded down with fillets. Great day with great company.

Herbert Carriere and family joined me on the big Blue Wave Boats. We only had a short time to fish, as they had to be back early. The trout didn't bite where we caught the previous day, so we made a move and found them close by. We caught tightlined on Green Hornet Matrix Shad and under the Four Horsemen Tackle corks with Shrimp Creole. After putting a mess of trout together, I was going to take them to put a quick mess of Bay Snapper together before heading in. Unfortunately, with 500 boats on the water.....every point, cut, crack and crevice had a boat on it and that plan didn't work out. We had a fun time in the few hours we fished. Thanks again!

Sonny Brignac and crew were back with me on the big Blue Wave Boats. The guys put a hurting on the big specks. Easy limits, as the big girls ate up our tightlined Green Hornet Matrix Shad and Shrimp Creole under a cork. It was so nice to see the silver back!! Looks like things are finally coming into place for the winter trout bite. Now is the time to get your December dates booked.

Had good friend and customer Shane Duplantis with Rexel back onboard the big Blue Wave Boats today. My crew smashed the reds leaving them biting at 8 am. We moved on looking for trout, but with the water temps at 52 degrees they were in lockjaw mode. I took them to a Bay Snapper hole and it's was on fire, non stop everycast action. With the box over flowing, we headed to the dock leaving them biting too. Another incredible day with these guys. Big thanks to Capt Travis Miller and Kevin Labat for running the other two boats. Everyone came in with their limits of reds. Thanks Shane for the continued business.

I had good customer Petey Kern and crew back onboard the big Blue Wave Boats today. The morning started off slow, but ended with a fast and furious bite! Patience was key today and it paid off. Fresh bait shrimp under the Four Horsemen Tackle corks got the job done again. We even found small Tarpon struggling to survive in the fridged 47 degree water. First time in my life I find a Tarpon in Dularge. Always a pleasure fishing with these guys, thanks again.

I helped Capt Rob Dupont today with the BUM's Fishing Team. It was a chilly morning, but with the right gear on all is good. The morning started out very slow picking a fish here and there. We stayed patient on Powerpole and the fish started coming to us in spurts. Fresh bait shrimp under the Four Horsemen Tackle corks put a hurt on the reds, as we left them biting. We made one stop for trout, but with the water temps at 51 degrees none wanted to bite. The crew decided to take it to the lodge to warm up. Thanks Capt Rd for setting it up.

My good customer Mark Maclean and Tim Balin were back onboard the big Blue Wave Boats with me. Green Hornet Matrix Shad tightlined put a hurt on the big girls!! A few also came under the Four Horsemen Tackle corks with the Shrimp Creole TKO shrimp. What a great time busting up these big trout, the specks are finally starting to show up with some consistency. Always a good time with these guys.

Day two with Tim 'Hot Rod' Batlin and Mark MaClean from Texas on the big Blue Wave Boats. The guys put a good lick on the specks today!! Matrix Shrimp Creole TKO shrimp under the Four Horsemen Tackle corks was the top producer, and Green Hornet Matrix Shad tightlined was second. It ended up being another great day with these guys. Thank goodness we didn't listen to the meteorologist forecast, because we would have cancelled both days!! Always a pleasure fishing with these two guys, thanks again.

I still have some openings the last week of November, so don't wait to book. The trout are finally showing up!!

I helped out my good buddy Capt T, trout was on the menu. With the thick fog, fishing under the birds was almost impossible. We covered some water picking away at the specks on Matrix Shad Shrimp Creole under the Four Horsemen Tackle corks, focusing on reefs all day. A 31 inch red joined the party also. Thanks buddy for setting it up.

I had good customer James Wheeler and family back onboard the Blue Wave Boats today. High winds, rain, minimal tide movement made it a real challenge for us. We started the morning off fishing Matrix Shad Shrimp Creole, glow, and the Shrimp Creole TKO Matrix shrimp under the Four Horsemen Tackle corks. With the windy conditions it was hard for my crew to stand, so we moved to calmer waters. We tried several other locations for trout with no luck, then switched to plan B. Fresh bait shrimp under the corks put a mix of reds, bay snapper, and pup drum in the K2 Coolers. A couple good reds got lucky and are still swimming!!!! Thanks to my crew for sticking it out in the less favorable conditions.

Dwayne Domingue and crew were back onboard the big Blue Wave Boats with me again. We started the morning off catching trout under the Four Horsemen Tackle corks. Matrix Shad Shrimp Creole, Glow, and the Shrimp Creole TKO shrimp did all the damage on the specks today. When the bite slowed we made a move to get away from the boat parade. My crew wanted to catch reds, so we switched to shrimp under a cork and on the bottom. We found several reds and Bay snapper to add to the box. Another great day on the water, thanks again.

Dave Broussard A/C and heating joined us. We fished for trout high and low to only find a handful. At the end of the day we switched to reds and heads and put some meat on ice. The guys had a blast and it was a fun time fishing with them putting a mix box together. Big thanks to Capt Kevin Labat for running the second boat showing the other half of the group a good time.

Steven Martin and his good friend fished with me. We focused on trout the first couple hours finding some 15-16 inch fish, just not many of them. Once the boat parade of Googans got out of control, it was time to fish for reds. The guys ended up one fish short of their limit as a couple reds spit the hook and they had some throw backs. The bay snapper are showing up every where and they added some for bonus. Great day with these guys, as they ended up with a great mixed box. Thanks to Capt Shawn P Whitney for running the second boat with Craig Landry and crew.

The Reel Impact LLC crew from Oklahoma made it to Dularge last night. We loaded up all the Blue Wave Boats this morning and headed out. The kids had the time of their lives catching slot reds, bull reds, trout, sheep head, puppy drum. Incredible day with this group, as these kids made memories that will last a lifetime. Big thanks to Steven Parks, Richard Parks, Tim Long, and Terri Nuechterlein with Bluewave.
Big thanks to Capt's Travis Miller, Lonnie Barr, and Jared Broussard for running the other Bluewave boats.

Day two with the Reel Impact LLC and Blue Wave Boats crew in the 30 plus mph winds was another success. Post front conditions with high winds and low water didn't stop these boys from putting fish in the coolers. It was a true pleasure to be a part of this and see the excitement in all of the boys faces. Truly a trip of a lifetime for these boys making memories that will last forever. Thanks to everyone involved in making the trip possible. Safe travels on your way back to Oklahoma tomorrow. Huge thanks to Capt's Travis Miller Lonnie Barr and Jared Broussard for running the other Bluewave boats showing everyone the time of their life. Also, huge thanks to Capt/Chef Shawn P Whitney for cooking all the awesome food, everyone loved everything. Without these great guys none of this would be possible. Thank you guys again for all you do.

Jack Legendre was back again on a two day trip with another group of customers. We slept in late thinking we were going to cancel due to the rain. The guys decided they wanted to go rain or not, so we left the dock at 9:30. The guys put together a mess of bay snapper, reds, specks, and a lonely bass. Great easy going group that just wanted to have fun and catch a few fish.....mission accomplished.

Day two with Jack Legendre and crew, the guys requested reds and got them! We could only fish for three hours as they had to be back to fly out. We found a pile of fish in one area and they hooked 15 fish while on Powerpole. Lots of laughs and high fives. Two great days with these guys despite the windy conditions and rain. Always a pleasure fishing with Jack and his crew, I look forward to your return in December.

My husband and wife crew from Ohio maul dragged the reds this morning!! The bite was on fire, as they had multiple double hook ups!! The #matrixcraw on a gold spinner tight lined and fresh shrimp under the #fourhorsemencorks put a hurt on them. I had a great time with this couple watching them bust the reds up. Thanks to Capt T Miller for setting it up.

Robert Utrera and crew were back for a couple days of fishing. We put a SMACKDOWN on reds again today. Easy quick limits, as the reds have been eating up the #matrixcraw on a spinner bait and fresh shrimp under the #fourhorsemencorks. Big thanks to Capt Kevin Labat for running the second boat. They put a good mess of trout together then added a few reds.

Day two with Robert Utrera and crew in the 25 mph winds was good as it gets. The high winds didn't stop these guys from smashing the reds again. Good times always fishing with these guys. Fresh bait shrimp under the #fourhorsemencorks did all the damage today. Big thanks to Capt Kevin Labat for running the second boat smashing the reds also. Always a awesome time with these guys.

Good customer Al Reaux was back with me today with two friends. We trout fished for the first two hours catching one keeper. Then switched to reds, we missed the best two hours of the bite....but the guys still put their limit of reds on ice. Always a pleasure fishing with Al and his crew.

I helped Capt Miller out today Mark Hebert and crew. The guys smashed the reds with no problem. Fresh bait shrimp under the #fourhorsemencorks continue to knock out Limits. Thanks Capt T for setting it up. Big thanks to Capt Kevin Labat for taking care of my good customer Danny Lirette and family. They also had a great catch of reds.

Helped out Capt T again today with a 3 man crew. The guys wanted trout, so that's what we spent the day focusing on. Shrimp Creole #Matrix Shad under a #fourhorsemencork got the job done. The guys whacked the specks then caught over twenty reds keeping nine. What a great day to be on the water in the #bluewaveboats. Thanks Capt T for lining things up.

Dwayne Domangue was back today with his family on the big Bluewave and man did they put a hurt on the reds!!! It was all about the kids and catching today, so we focused on reds. Well it was mission accomplished and the kids and adults all caught their fare share of reds. Besides catching their limit, there were many throw backs and lots of keepers that are still swimming. Fresh bait shrimp under the #fourhorsemencorks did it again!! It was a fun time with this family today and I look forward to their return.

Ken Neil from Florida joined me today down in Dularge. We left later then normal, but it didn't matter!! Half way down the first bank we drifted we had 8 reds iced down and a throw back. We had a short lull in the fast action for a while, then ended it off quick with two more for the limit and three released to fight again. Easy limits and great time showing Ken around the marsh of South Louisiana. I took some videos earlier and only got these two pictures. Totally forgot to get pictures at the dock when I got back. All fish today caught on #matrixcraw with and without spinner baits and on fresh shrimp under the #fourshorsemencorks.

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.

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.
