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.

I helped out Capt Miller for three days with the dairy farmers. Day 1 we spent in the shallows doing good. Day 2/3 the bite shut down on us and we switched to crabs, getting the guys on bulls and slots. Thanks Capt T for setting it up.

Good customer Jack Legendre and crew were back with me for two days. Day 1 the guys slammed the reds quick catching the limit on crabs. Day two the guys could only fish till 10. The reds didn't turn on in time so we abandoned the crab hole to try and get them a few fish in shrimp under a cork before headed in. Always a pleasure fishing and hanging out with Jack and I look forward to his return in another week.

Fair Hyams big crew of 13 boats was a huge success. Seven boats ran out of Cocodrie and I had six boats running out of Dularge. Most all of the boats came in loaded down, despite the high winds, tides, and ripping current. Combinations of reds and trout were caught. Thanks to all the guides who helped out.

Dylan Vaughn and crew came to catch fish and man did they. We fished fresh bait shrimp under the famous #fourhorsemencorks and the guys put the smackdown on the reds again. Great time with these guys and already looking forward to their return in the spring.

Helped out Capt Lloyd today with a crew from Iowa and Kentucky. We had three boats running. The guys with me had never red-fished before, well that changed today. The guys busted up bigger reds on crabs and slot reds in the shallows under #fourhorsemen corks. They had the time of their lives reeling them in, good as it gets today with some trout showing up too. The specks are finally starting to show their presence in the lakes. All of our specks hit be #matrixshad #shrimpcreole under the corks. Thanks Capt L Landry for setting the trip up.

Helped out Capt Lloyd Landry again today with the Iowa/Kentucky guys. The guys busted up the reds catching their limit again today on shrimp under the #fourhorsemencorks in the pumpkin patch. Good as it gets again, what a awesome two days with these guys. Big thanks to Capt Lloyd for setting up the trip.
Big thanks to Capt Shawn p Whitney for taking care of Fletcher Lindsey and son for me.

Edwin Duet, and Kendall Authement joined me on the #bluewaveboats today in the pumpkin patch. Continued easy daily limits of reds under the #fourhorsemen corks. Great time with these guys.

Day one with Elliot Electric crew from Arkansas was a huge success. We hit the shallow marsh soaking bait shrimp under the #fourhorsemencorks catching our limits of reds. Big thanks to Capt T Miller and K Labat for running the two other boats putting the other crews on a Redfish Slam also.

Day two with Elliot Electric had us looking for trout first thing in the morning. We found a couple hundred trout, but all were eleven inches except for a handful. The guys had fun reeling them in every cast for a good hour. At 10 am we switched gears to reds so we could fill up the box. We hit the shallows again catching their limit before the heat almost killed us!! Capt T Miller got on a good school of keeper trout and hit a few reds. Capt K labat also found a few keeper trout and got on a good red bite. The guys headed back to Arkansas loaded down with fillets. It was great fishing with these guys again and I look forward to our next trip.

I helped out Capt K Labat today with a group from Texas. We went straight into the shallows and commenced to beating up them
Reds once again. Shrimp under a #fourhorsemencork put our limit of reds in the box again, and we were done before the heat machine got too bad. Thanks Capt Labat for setting up the trip.

I had Charlie Davis and his family onboard the big Bluewave today and boy did they experience a Redfish SMACKDOWN. Charlie won a trip through the Louisiana Charter Boat Association and chose to come and fish with me. I decided to switch things up and fish crabs instead of shrimp. Well the reds were stacked up and it didn't take my crew long to fill the big 120 K2Cooler to the top with our limit. It was a fun filled quick action morning and we beat the heat and the rain. Big thanks to the guys at LCBA for making this happen, it was a great time fishing with this family.

Johnny Robbins and his crew from Virginia joined me onboard the Big Bluewave today. We went back to where we smacked the reds yesterday to find a empty hole! We waited out the bite patiently and zero fish. We hit one other hole before making a move back to the shallows where I've been catching every other day. The reds didn't disappoint as we filled up the cooler again with shrimp under the #fourhoresemencorks. The guys finished off strong catching the last ten fish in one cut on Power pole. Great group and fun to fish with, thanks to Capt K Labat for setting up the trip.

Helped out Capt R Dupont with the BUM's fishing crew again. We headed out with storms all around us. With seven on ice, the sky was turning black. We headed for shelter, but the rain never came. We ran back to where we were and then the sky fell on us. We waited it out and put another five on ice before making one last stop. All it took was a drift down one short bank and into a cut and we had our 20 in the rain. Horrible weather didn't stop my crew from getting it done. Bait shrimp under the #fourhorsemencorks got it done. Thanks Capt RD for setting up the trip.

I had three generations of Braden's on the boat. Chad Braden brought his dad and 7 yr old son with him. Little man had a blast right out the gate reeling in four reds quickly. I thought it was going to be quick and easy, but the reds threw us a loop. We found pristine crystal clear water and was able to sight cast to over 13 reds which only three took our shrimp and not one would hit my green Hornet on a spinner bait. We kept pounding the banks until #15 hit the ice. Great day with these guys making memories.

There is signs of shrimp starting to show up, but the specks just aren't thick yet. Hopefully in 1-2 more weeks we start seeing Silver again!!

Charles Allo was back on the big #bluewaveboats today with one of his good friends. We found a slow steady bite this morning on our double rigged #matrixshad. We stayed patient as we could and picked away between the trash fish. Once the bite went non existent we started moving and found a non existent bite at our next six stops except for a school of bull reds that surfaced next to the boat. Our final stop before heading in found a handful more of trout making it in for a ice bath in the #k2cooler and another handful that fell back into the water to live longer!!! Great time with these guys.

First day in the new 2019 Bluewave Purebay breaking in the engine and doing some scouting for trout. My good friend Doug Benoit from back in high school joined me. It was a great day catching up on old times. We covered some water and finally found a slow steady bite at our last stop. We kept enough fish for a good fresh fish fry!

Looks like the new #bluewaveboats is a catching machine also!! We left the reds biting to put more hours on the engine and found some trout feeding before we headed in. It was great catching up with my good friend Brad Chauvin, and our boys joined us too.
Fresh shrimp under a #fourhorsemencork for the reds and shrimp Creole or holy joely #matrixshad under the corks for the specks.

Dr Deep Chadha and his buddy joined me on the new #Bluewaveboats 2400 Purebay today for a Redfish Slam. Good time catching our limit of reds today in the shallows.

Great having Art Whitmer and his Texas crew back onboard. We had a great day smashing the golden beauties in the shallows, putting our limit on ice. Bait shrimp under the #fourhorsemencorks got the job done once again.

Floyd Ferrell and crew from Missouri joined me on the big Bluewave for some trout action. Our first stop found zero fish, we made a move and found what we were looking for! We had the trout coming in 1-2 at a time on our double rigged Matrix Shad. Once the bite quit we made a move and found the big trout stacked up again. We slung nice trout in until the sky fell on us and ran us in. Great time with these guys once again.

I helped out Capt T Miller with a group. We thought we would have to cancel due to the rain, but we ended up being able to fish. We got a late start and headed straight for the trout grounds. We found clean water but no tide movement and the fish were pretty much in lockjaw mode. We picked away at a handful of fish and kept moving and grinding. We finally got on a little bite at our last two stops and put a few fish together. Thanks Capt T for setting it up.

I had good customer Dr Michael Tuite and crew back onboard the big Bluewave with me again. Calm winds and seas had us in trout mode! What a incredible morning it was, and the specks ate up our double rigged Matrix like there was no tomorrow. Easy limits of 100 trout and we got back to beat the heat. Always a great time with this crew.

Day two with Dr Micheal and crew again. The rain had us sitting at the dock before it passed. We headed back to the trout grounds to find windier conditions and choppy seas and a much slower bite. The water was still clean but the trout didn't cooperate like the day before. We worked hard to put a small pile of trout together. Big thanks to Capt K Labat for running the second boat with Kevin Guidry's crew.

My anonymous crew were back with me today!! With the winds up it was back to red fishing. We fished some new areas today that we have never fished and hit the jack pot. The reds were loaded up in a small area and my crew went to work on them! Bait shrimp under a cork had the K2Cooler full. Always a pleasure fishing with this crew. Big thanks to Capt T Miller, Capt K Labat, Capt C Lombard for running the other three boats with this crew and to Capt L Barr for taking care of Rodney Landry's crew with Turner Industries. Couldn't do what we do with out the hard work of these great Captains.

Day two with the anonymous crew found us crushing the reds as soon as we pulled up. We had ten on ice before moving the boat. We left the shallows with 18 in the K2Cooler to try and get them on some bigger reds. We fished two holes with crabs catching one 29 inch red. With 19 reds and 1 pup drum my crew threw in the towel. Great two days with these guys and gals. Thanks to Capt K Labat, Capt A LaCour, and Capt C Lombard for running the other boats.

Dr Arthur Ostheimer and crew jumped on the big Bluewave today for a red fish Slam. We found the reds stacked up again and had 11 on ice as soon as we pulled up before moving. Bait shrimp under the 4horsemen cork made for easy limits before 10am. It was the lil man's first redfish trip and he is hooked. He caught 4 reds in his first 6 cast!!! Great morning with this crew.

I helped out Capt T Miller with a bachelor party group. We had calm winds so we headed out for trout. We found a slow start, but after a couple moves we got on a good bite. Everyone was reeling in trout on our double rigged Matrix Shad until the dolphins showed up and busted up the party. We moved around not finding another bite until a hour later returning to the only place we caught. With the sky turning black, temperature dropping 20 degrees, wind blowing, and a blanket of rain approaching....it was time to put the throttle down!!

Day two with the bachelor party group found us red fishing in the shallows. Bait shrimp under a Fourhorsemen Cork is what the reds wanted as they would not touch a artificial bait today. The guys had a blast battling the reds. Great two days with these guys, thanks T Miller for setting it up.

Inolect crew was back with us today on the #bluewaveboats. We spent a great evening at the lodge and enjoyed Chef Shawn P's cooking. We headed out for trout and found the winds higher then expected (go figure). Dirty water, no tide, and a good chop, but my crew still were able to put 21 specks on ice before we switched to plan B. We moved into the marsh and only added a few reds covering a lot of prime area. With no tide they just wouldn't bite. Great day with these guys laughing and cutting up all day. Big thanks to Capt T Miller and K Labat for running the other two boats.

Day two with Inolect had us red fishing. Our first stop found a couple bull reds, then the rain hit us. We moved to another area finding a flounder and four slot reds fishing shrimp under a cork. We found a hole and dropped crabs down and got our last three bulls right over 27 inches. We made several other moves only finding one more red. No tide again today, but another great day with my crew on the Bluewave. Big thanks to Lonnie Barr with Inolect for the friendship and continued business over the last eleven years. Thanks to Capt T Miller and Capt K Labat for taking care of the other two boats and thanks to Chef Shawn P Whitney for doing his thing cooking up all that great food for us.

I had the pleasure to fish with the Black family today from Arkansas. We started the day off catching some bull reds and a couple tourney reds over 8 pounds right under 27 inches. It was a slow bite so we moved looking for a better bite. We added three more reds to the K2Cooler. With 7 taking a ice bath I decided to move zip codes. It turned out being the right move as we found a school of reds and my crew made quick work adding another 7 quick. #15 took another thirty minutes to get but my crew successfully put their limit in the boat before the sky fell and we ran in. Bait crabs Carolina rigged and bait shrimp under corks caught the majority of fish, one fell victim to a gold spoon. Thanks again for a very enjoyable day, I look forward to your return in December.

Day one with Jack Legendre and crew was a Grand Slam!! I told the guys from the start to expect the worse and hope for the best! With winds blowing almost 30 mph we found a protected area and the reds were stacked like sardines! It took my crew 30 minutes to fill the K2Cooler with 25 reds and 2 pup drum. Bait shrimp under a Four Horseman Cork did the trick. Big thanks to Capt T Miller for running the second boat. What a blast we had.

Day two with Jack Legendre and crew was another success. We went straight back to where we found them the previous day. We found a slower bite, but stayed patient and put the limit together by 10:30. A great two days with these guys. Thanks Capt T Miller for running the second boat and to Chef Leonard Adkins for all the fabulous cooking.

Had my very good customer back onboard the Bluewave today. We found a somewhat slower bite then the day before adding 8 reds to the K2Cooler. We changed zip codes and got up to 10 on a point. Moved again and got to 15 reds and some lost green trout. Shrimp under a #fourhorsemancork and green hornet #matrixshad accounted for all of our fish. Big thanks to Chef Shawn P Whitney for doing all the great cooking for these guys.

Toby Rich and crew were back on the #bluewaveboats with me again for a beat the heat trip. We picked away all night on double rigged #matrixshad lures. The fish never turned on hot and heavy, but we put together a nice box of fish. Always a fun time fishing with these guys.

I doubled back after night fishing to fish with Scott King and crew. We were greeted with slick calm seas. Our first stop was battling of the bulls as we were surrounded by a Red Tide, thousands of bulls reds all on the surface around us. After the guys hooked several each, we moved on looking for trout. Our third stop the guys started picking away putting trout in the K2Cooler. Our fourth stop is where we had our best bite with everyone catching fish. When this bite died we took it to the dock with zero wind it felt like a oven out there. Make sure you drink plenty water! Thanks guys for a great trip.

John Weeks and family joined me again today with wife and three kids 13, 11, and 8. We got off to a great start as we had the specks coming in on double rigged #matrixshad and on top water #matrixmullets almost everycast at our first stop. The action was non stop and the smiles on the kids faces said it all! We made a few moves once the hot bite quit and picked away at another 20 fish before the heat got so bad we called it quits. Big thanks to Capt R Dupont and Capt T Ortego for running the other two boats with Tellus.

Coach Rodney Guin and crew were back with me with again. The plan was for trout and the plan came together! Things looked grim first thing in the morning with rough seas and not much going on. I took a gamble and moved to a area that hasn't been producing and hit the mother load!! We had 18-20 inch trout coming in 1-2 at a time on our double rigged Matrix Shad. It was fish on, as the big girls were flying over the gunnels. What a blast!!! Big smiles on everyone's faces as it's always fun fishing with these guys.

Day two with Coach Guin and crew had us red fishing. We found a very slow grinding bite most of the morning. We picked up seven reds at one of our last stop drifting a bank, with shrimp under a #fourhorseman cork and on Green Hornet #matrixshad with a gold spinner. Great two days fishing with these guys. Thanks to Capt T Lovell for running the second boat both days.

Trampas Amadee and crew were back with us today. With the winds up we decided to stick with red fishing. I started out in a very shallow pond and got off to a good start. We could see the reds waking all around and could cast right to them. We hooked seven and boated six of them. We made a quick move and within minutes had hooked two more. With the winds calming down we decided to make a run for trout. Well that didn't pan out so we came back to red fishing. We grinded them out and finished with sixteen reds all on spinner baits with green hornet #matrixshad. It was a fun time with these guys. Thanks to Capt K Labat and Capt S.P. Whitney for taking care of my Gaiennie Lumber crew.

The Solenis crew joined me again on the Big Bluewave today. Too windy for trout so we went straight to the ponds and started pounding banks. With barely no tide movement we found a very slow bite. We casted to waking reds and they never even looked at our baits. We hooked a fish every so often, It was a grind for sure. Our last stop we soaked shrimp on the bottom and caught some puppy drum. Thanks Capt T Miller for setting up the trip and Thanks to Capt J Broussard for taking care of Kerry Lawrence and family for me.

Dan Sullivan with Gaiennie Lumber crew fished with us once again. Another windy hot day fishing for reds. We started out in the shallows throwing spinner baits with #matrixshad and shrimp under a #fourhorseman cork. The morning started off slow so we went to a deep hole, soaking shrimp on the bottom. The pup drum started to fill the #k2cooler one by one. I told my crew that patience will prevail!! Once they put a three man limit together they decided to hit the ponds again to look for more reds. It was a good decision as we started to add the Golden 'gold fish' to the box. Big thanks to Capt K Labat and Capt C Lombard for running the other two boats and Capt J Broussard for taking care of Josh Droegemueller and family. All of our customers had a great time.

I helped out Capt Miller with a bachelor party group. We were greeted with slick calm seas and pulled up to trout busting shrimp on the surface. It was fish on as we had the big specks coming in two at a time on our double rigged Matrix Shad. Fast and furious bite as we boxed 80 fish before 8 am. The bite slowed a little and we picked away to 100 by 8:45. With no wind and it hot as hell my crew decided to roll to the dock, as some of them had not slept from the day before!!! Great time with these guys, thanks Capt T for setting up the trip.

Day one with Wesley, Kelley Carambat and kids. We had high hopes of the trout bite continuing like yesterday! We had a slight chop this morning but it wasn't bad at all. We got on a lil run of ten fish as soon as we pulled up, and thought it was going to be on! Well, it wasn't. We moved around just picking for a couple hours until we got run in from storms. We hit the shallows and broke out the spinner baits and spoons. We added four reds before the sky turned black and lighting started, so we rolled to the lodge for noonish. Great time as always with this crew. Big thanks to Capt T Miller for running the second boat and to Capt J Broussard for running Art Costly's crew.

Day two with the Carambat's had us trout fishing again. We found another slow bite at our first stop. We picked away at some decent fish until the bite played out. We made a move finding a few more fish before we made a move to fish for bull reds before coming in. We hooked one big nasty drum and one big bull red that the girls had a blast reeling In. A fun two days with this family again. Thanks to Capt T Miller for running the second boat and to Capt K Labat for taking out Art Costly's crew.

Gaiennie Lumber was back with us again. I decided to change things up and start somewhere else, well the fish didn't bite. We made several moves just catching a few fish at each stop. We finally got on one little run of fish then it was back to lock jaw. The guys called it a day at 11 and we headed in. Big thanks to Capt T Miller and Capt K Labat for running the other two boats with Gaiennie and Capt C Lombard and Capt C Dupre for running my Sparrows crew for the Fourchon Oilmans.

Steven and Monica Borel were back on the big Bluewave with me again. We headed out for trout and found bumpy seas and a slow bite. One of my crew got sea sick, so we headed into the marsh to fish for reds and green trout. We put a good mix together before they called it quits due to the heat. Always a fun time fishing with these two. Big thanks to Capt C Lombard and Capt K Labat for running the two boats with my Sparrows crew.

Find clean water is most important. We haven't seen and shrimp or birds diving yet, hopefully they will show up by the weekend.

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.

Right now I'm not 100% sure. If I had to make a guess I would say no.

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.

Trout are everywhere actually. All of the interior Lakes, showing up in good numbers. The trout should start to get bigger also any day now.
