Brad Schaffer and family were back with me today on the Blue Wave Boats. We didn’t know what to expect after yesterday. We pulled out around 9 am after the rain quit, and my crew went to work quickly. We found the mother load of Bay Snapper and the girls gave them no mercy. The K2 Cooler filled to the top and we left them biting every cast after we ran out of shrimp! With 91 Bay Snapper and 1 red in the boat we made our way back to the dock. The girls didn’t want to quit they were having so much fun feeling all the fish in. We had a total of 168 Bay Snapper, 3 reds, and 1 drum. Big thanks to Capt T Miller for running the second boat today. www.absolutefishingcharters.com 985-856-4477 Capt Marty

There are good days and bad days!! Today was a long, tough, grinding one. I had a customer in town from Illinois and today was our day to fish, Mother Nature gave us no breaks. We covered some water grinding all day in the wind and rain. One bass spit the hook and the only red hooked all day broke off on a wooden pole!! We hooked the Four Horsemen Tackle cork twice with the red swimming around, but it still managed to get away from us (it’s still swimming around with the cork). Our last two stops found a slow bay snapper bite. Good weather can’t come soon enough!! It was a pleasure fishing with you guys again, thanks guys for sticking it out all day. www.absolutefishingcharters.com 985-856-4477

Helped out Capt T Miller today with a bachelor party crew. The winds blew 30-35 mph all day making it very hard to fish!!! These guys stuck it out putting a decent box of reds together on Green Hornet Matrix Shad. www.absolutefishingcharters.com 985-856-4477 Capt Marty

Brutal winds today had us focusing on reds in the Blue Wave Boats. Green Hornet Matrix Shad tightlined was our top producer. We caught two fish on bait shrimp under the Four Horsemen Tackle corks. 17 reds hooked and 13 made it into the cooler, they made us work for them today. Great time with this crew from Kansas and Lafayette. www.absolutefishingcharters.com 985-856-4477 Capt Marty

Ricky Barbera joined me today on the Blue Wave Boats. Our first and only stop for trout had them coming in the boat everycast. They were feeding on little shrimp again and they were running for their lives! Shrimp Creole Matrix Shad under the Four Horsemen Tackle corks was our top producer with the Green hornet tight lined coming in second. With the gnats so thick, we moved on to reds once the bite slowed to a crawl. We caught over 70 trout keeping 28. We moved to the ponds and limited out on reds tight lining the Green hornet Matrix once again. Good times as always with Ricky onboard. www.absolutefishingcharters.com 985-856-4477

Good times today with Kelly Walker and crew from Northern Oklahoma. Our day started out slow, but mid day we got on the trout every cast. The trout were exploding on shrimp 360 degrees around the boat, what a great sight to see finally!!!! We actually left the trout biting so I could get Kelly on some redfish. He caught his first redfish and several more today. It was a great day with good company. Time to get your dates booked as summer is filling up!! 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Good customer John Doucet and crew were back with me on the Blue Wave Boats. The guys put the SMACKDOWN on the reds today, tight lining the green hornet Matrix Shad, purple haze Vortex Shad and gold spoons in the shallows. After our limit the guys caught and released over a hour before calling it quits. Always a pleasure fishing with these guys.

Sonny Brignac and crew were back onboard the Blue Wave today. We targeted trout and found a slow bite at our first and second stop. When we finally found them stacked up and hungry, the dolphins moved in and shut the bite down. We moved around and picked away as the fish never schooled Back up. Shrimp Creole Matrix Shad under a cork was the top producer. Good times once again with these guys, thanks again Sonny for the continued business.

Good customer Ben Ratcliff was back onboard the Blue Wave Boats today with some good friends. Trout was on the menu and man did these guys have fun catching them. Various colors of Matrix Shad lures under Four Horsemen Tackle corks did the damage as they were eating any color we threw. We had a run of some good 16 inch fish, but there were plenty small fish around also. The guys threw back more then we kept, lots of fun catching. Sure is good to see some silver in the box. Thanks guys for a awesome day.

Good customers Michael Tuite and Matt Davis were back on the Blue Wave Boats today, along with Nick. We searched all over for the reds today, but none to be found. Plan B went into play and the K2 Coolers was filled with bay Snapper. Always a fun time fishing with these guys. Thanks again for the continued business and friendship.

Good time today on the Blue Wave Boats smashing the reds on Limbo Slice Matrix Shad. We did catch some on bait shrimp, but they couldn't get enough of the Limbo Slice. We found them stacked up thick and had them coming over the gunnels everycast!!! Fun times and lots of laughs.

Day two with Jack Legendre and crew. We found cleaner water and a better tide this morning and a trout on the first cast!! We thought it was going to be on fire finally, but it was slower then yesterday. The trout bite finally picked up midday right before my two man crew had to get back to drive home to Texas. Great two days again with this crew. Can't thank Chef Leonard for all the great food, Capt T Miller for running the second boat, and Jack for the continued business and friendship.

Day 1 with Jack Legendre was a success! We found a decent bite putting some nice 15-18 inch specks on ice. Glow Matrix Shad tightlined worked best for us. The bite was finicky as we missed triple the amount of fish we caught. Good times as always with these guys. Big thanks to Capt Travis Miller for running the second boat.

Pat Mcfarlain and his boys joined me today on the Blue Wave Boats. It was good having Pat back again and meeting his boys. Our morning started off slowly checking some new areas but the water was dirty. We made a few moves and finally found clean water and started picking away. After the plastic bite shut down we switched to fresh shrimp on the bottom. We ended up leaving the Bay Snapper biting everycast. Another day of the Super Cajun Slam. Trout, reds, bass, flounder, drum, Bay Snapper, fresh water catfish!! Good times as always on the bayou.

Tough long day on the Blue Wave Boats today with Mike Bannister and family. Weather conditions were finally perfect today, but the water was still dirty 98% all over. The fish pretty much had lock jaw all day long. We finally were able to get a few fish in the box to send them home with a full gallon of meat. Spoke with ten other boats who had zero fish and a couple others that had 2 fish and 4 fish. Hopefully the water cleans up in the next couple days and things turn back on. Thanks to my crew for sticking it out and fishing hard.

Frank Lettieri and his son from Colorado were back with me today on the Blue Wave Boats. We battled the 30 mph winds and put a mixed box together. We even had the Cajun Super Slam....trout, red, flounder, bass, drum, Bay Snapper, and fresh water catfish!! We caught every edible species there is in the marsh. Good times once again with these guys in brutal conditions.

Good customer Jack Legendre and crew were back onboard the Blue Wave Boats again. We targeted trout and found a slow steady bite all morning. Green Hornet Matrix Shad slowly tight lined worked best for us. The trout went 16-19 inches. Thanks again Jack and look forward to having you back in a couple weeks.

What a difference a day makes. New customer Joe MCDonald and family joined me today on the Blue Wave Boats. We found a slow steady bite of 16-20 inch trout. Green Hornet and Glow Matrix Shad slowly tight lined worked best. We added a few keeper reds and a bass then switched to Bay Snapper as little 6 yr old Preston wanted to catch his favorite fish. Well no problem as my crew had the Bay Snapper coming in one after another!! Good times and memories made with this family on Christmas Eve! They are going home with four gallon bags of fillets. Thanks again.

Merry Christmas everyone, I hope everyone has a blessed Christmas.

Tough, slow, long, hard day today with Chris Maggio and crew. Water temps were up, good falling tide, calm winds, etc. All the right conditions for a Trout Slam, but they wanted no part of eating!!! We covered a lot of water and found the fish with lock jaw at every stop. Thanks guys for sticking it out and fishing hard.

Scott Moise and his boys were back on the Blue Wave Boats. We found 48 degree water temps at our first stop. We got on a good run of reds and found a couple trout that must have been real hungry!! The guys hooked two tagged reds, a handful of Bay Snapper decided to join us also. Great time with these guys, thanks.

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.

Correct its a Ridgid reciprocating saw the handheld model. Can be bought at Home Depot or you can also contact Andrew Messenger 225 329 3295 he sells the knifes and the blades. We use them to clean all of our redfish, drum, and sheephead.

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.
