Had a awesome day with my LCR crew from Houma. LCR brought a crew from Terry Poiencot’s plumbing, and man these guys can fish. We caught trout the first few hours of the morning and ended it with them drag pulling reds. The guys never had a dull moment as they reeled in fish the entire time. They caught over 100 trout with 23 being keepers. Still Tons of small fish, but it’s a good sign for what’s to come. Big thanks to Capt T Miller, and Capt J Broussard for taking care of Clay Boudreaux’s crew, they had a blast too. Frank Lettieri was back in town from Colorado with some friends to celebrate his birthday. The guys jumped onboard the Blue Wave Boats. We started the morning out catching trout. All fish caught on the Matrix Shad TKO Shrimp Creole under Four Horsemen Tackle corks. Still mostly all undersized trout catching probably 8-10 throwbacks per keeper. We did however find one decent school that produced mostly keepers. We left the trout so the guys could battle some reds and drum. It took a few stops to find some fish, but the guys finally got to experience some drag pulling. The redfish bite was slow, but the drum are thick every where you go. Always a pleasure fishing with Frank, thanks again guys. Big thanks to Capt T Miller for running the second boat with Franks crew, Capt K Labat for taking care of Dane Barrios and grandsons, and to Capt J Broussard for showing Mr Dave Wilson from Texas a great day. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Made a afternoon trip with a crew that wanted to stay anonymous!! It was fish on from the first cast. The guys had a blast battling the reds, even threw in a couple pup drum. Bent rods and drag pulling all afternoon. Thanks Capt T Miller for putting it all together. The anonymous crew were back onboard for another round of drag pulling reds!!!! A great time was had by all, plenty laughs and cutting up. Carolina rigged cracked crab on the bottom is still pulling in the reds. Thanks Capt T Miller for setting things up. Elliot Electric and crew had a blast battling the reds and drum, they even found a few trout today. Slower red bite today and tons of reds over 27 inches that were released. The trout are starting to make their presence, it should be a great winter for trout “catching”. Thanks guys for the continued business. Big thanks to Capt T Miller, K Labat, and J Broussard for running the other boats showing the guys a great time. Three of the four boats catch pictured below. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Great night at the camp and fishing today with the Azek Building Product crew. The guys came in from all across the Country, they enjoyed boiled seafood last night. Today they all busted up the reds and drum. Fun time with these guys and it was a great success. The 2600 Blue Wave Boats ran awesome, and got into the shallow ponds with ease. It’s the real deal!!!Big thanks to Capt T Miller and Capt Shawn P for running the other two boats showing their crew a fantastic time. Great day with a awesome three man crew. The guys had bent rods all day long and put a nice mess of reds, bay snapper, pup drum, and a lonely flounder on ice. Pleasure fishing with these guys again. Thanks to Capt T Miller for putting the trip together. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Finally had a day off!! What do you do on a day off? Take your boys fishing of course!! Easy quick limits of reds this morning and headed back to beat the weather. Great morning with my boys. Cracked crab Carolina rigged on the bottom was the ticket. My two boys battled the reds, as they were stacked up. We kept 10 reds and released the rest. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Dr Mike Tuite and his friend Jason joined me on the Blue Wave Boats. Our first stop found a few reds and drum. After the bite died, we were on the search! Our next few stops came up empty, then we hit a good streak. The guys were steadily bowed up and the drags were singing. Always a pleasure fishing with Mike. Ryan Davis, his brothers, and dad jumped on the Blue Wave Boats with me. The guys had their fill of reeling in reds and drum, as they had plenty of drag pulling going on. A great time was had by all, it was a pleasure taking them fishing. Putting the new 2600 Blue Wave Boats to the test. We found the reds stacked up and had them coming in every-cast. All catch and release today. We tested the boat in the shallows and were able to get up on step in 1.2-1.5 ft easily. The boat is a beast in the rough, gets into the shallow no problem, it’s a all around animal. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Keith Lirette with LCR and crew joined me on the Blue Wave Boats. We focused on reds most of the morning finding a slow bite in the holes. We decided to go look for trout around 11:30. We picked away at some on the TKO Shrimp from Matrix Shad under the Four Horsemen Tackle corks, before shutting it down at 1:30 in the 100 degree heat!!! Fun time by all, these guys were a blast to fish with. Thanks Guys. Jacob Descant and crew jumped onboard the Blue Wave Boats with me. Trout was requested so we focused on trout all day. We found shrimp jumping early in the morning, but all trout were undersized except for a couple. The hunt began as we covered some water. We found multiple schools of 8-10 inch trout with shrimp and birds diving, but no keepers. We went around the world and back, then picked away a some keepers. All fish caught on shrimp creole TKO Matrix Shad under Four Horsemen Tackle corks. It was a great time with these guys and gals even though the bite was slow, thanks again. Barry Aucoin and family joined me for a relaxing morning of fishing. We focused on redfish all morning. It was a slow morning, we the tide never moved more then a quarter of a foot. Even though the tide barley moved, they got their share of drag pulling drum and reds. When the tide completely quit moving and the bite went to non existent, they threw in the towel and we headed in. Thanks again for a very enjoyable morning. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Great day with David Thibodaux and his customers!! Casey had the hot rod all day, we caught at pretty much every stop. We stuck to reds all day, as they wanted to have their drags pulled! Always a great time fishing with these guys. Big thanks to Chef Leonard Adkins for taking care of all the groceries. Steaks on night one and boiled shrimp and crabs on night two, everything was awesome. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Day one was a success and a blast with the Marines. Big fish were the target and they didn’t disappoint! First place bull red went 31.2 pounds today! We shall see if he gets knocked out tomorrow! Everyone had a great time battling the bulls!! Big thanks to Capt’s T Miller, K Labat, and S.P. Whitney for taking care of the other three boats putting their crews on the fish. Everyone had a blast. Day two of the 2019 Semper Fish Red Rodeo!! We found non stop action all morning, as my crew reeled in big drum till their arms were tired. On our fourth stop we found a couple beast. We thought we had it won, but were one pound short. lots of big bull reds caught with three going 30-31 pounds. What a fun time with these guys, lots of laughs and smack talking!! Thanks Jody Foret for organizing and putting together everything. Semper Fi my brothers!! Big thanks to Capt. T Miller, K Labat, S.P. Whitney for running the other boats. Chef Leonard Adkins for all the groceries, steak night tonight!! Thanks also to Capt J Broussard for taking care of David Daigle and crew. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

What a great day with Elliot Electric Supply Crew. The guys had a blast catching trout all morning on the Matrix Shad TKO shrimp under Four Horsemen Tackle corks. We switched gears to reds around 10, but found a almost lockjaw red bite. We fished hard for a few hours, but just couldn’t get them to bite. The guys had a blast and I can’t wait to have them back in three weeks. Thanks guys for the continued business. Big thanks to Capt T Miller, and Capt Shawn P for running the two other boats, and to Capt K Labat for taking care of good customer Joseph Ciganek. It was his first redfish trip with us and they smashed the reds. Joseph is now hooked on red-fishing!! 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

After multiple rescheduled trips over the last week of non stop never ending rain, we finally got a break in the weather. It was nice to have good customers Art Costly and crew back with me on the Blue Wave Boats the last two days. Day one was a grind covering lots of water. Day two was much better as the trout decided to bite. We even had a couple drag pulling reds join the party. Double rigged Matrix Shad and the TKO Shrimp Creole shrimp under a Four Horsemen Tackle cork produced all of our fish. Thanks guys for the continued business over all these years. Long time friend Mark Charpentier and his buddy Lance joined me on the Blue Wave Boats. Trout was the target species. We put over 90 miles on the BW searching high and low. We could have sunk the boat early every cast with 6-8 inch specks as they are plentiful, but keepers were hard to find. Great time with these guys as it was all about relaxing and being on the water. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

September 06 at 4:53am

New customer Scott Leblanc, son, and son-in-law jumped on board with me. Our plan was to fish for trout, and we set our sights Southward. At daybreak we had a nice big Storm right by us, but we managed to stay dry. The winds and seas kicked up making it impossible to trout fish, so we headed North for reds. We covered lots of good clean shallow ponds with only two hook ups. We moved further North and added six more. Another long slow day working hard to get them to bite. Better weather and bite can’t come soon enough. Fun times with Chris Cline for his bachelor party. We dodged rain, got rained on, caught a bunch of drum and reds, with the music playing and party going!! Thanks guys for all the laughs and fun, great time with you guys. Thanks to Capt Kevin Labat for running the second boat. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

September 06 at 4:48am

Ben Ratcliff and family were back with me on the Blue Wave Boats today. We headed out for trout and found rough seas and one crew member got sea sick early. With one speck on ice we pointed the bow to the redfish grounds. The bite started out slow, then picked up quick. Green hornet Matrix Shad on a gold spinner and gold spoons did the damage. One fell victim to a fresh bait shrimp under a Four Horsemen Tackle cork. Thanks Ben for the continued business. Wet and wild specks. Ricky and Linda Barbera were back on the Blue Wave Boats again. Trout was the target, so we waited out storms early then headed out. We found emerald green clear water at every stop and lock jaw trout until our last stop. We had a few doubles and singles coming in then the sky turned black!! The ride in was better then any ride at Disney....LOL. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

I helped out Capt T today with a two man crew. First cast had one of the guys reeling in a double. I didn’t want to get too excited at first, but the fish kept coming! Double rigged Matrix Shad went to work and the trout finally cooperated and bit. We had a good run then got ran off by a storm. Our second stop had a trout coming in on the first cast again, then it started raining and off we went. Our third stop we stuck it out and had a good bite. We let the rain pass over us and kept catching. Great day with these guys. Thanks Capt T Miller for setting it up. Day one with my Inolect crew found the trout thick as can be!! Fast and furious every cast action on double rigged Matrix Shad lures. Every cast action from the time we pulled up to the time we left them biting. Good as it gets and we even beat the heat. Always a blast fishing with these guys. Thanks Lonnie Barr for the continued business and friendship over the last 12 years. Big thanks to Capt T Miller, A LaCour, and K Labat for running the other boats and Shawn P for all the awesome food! Day two with Inolect was another great success. We didn’t have as good of a day as yesterday with a full limit of specks, but still ended up getting on a every cast bite on double rigged Matrix Shad. The white trout were thicker today and when the specks quit biting it was white trout two at a time. We could have sunk the boat with them but only kept 40 and threw back about 100. Pictured is my crew and my crew and Capt Elton’s crew together (2 of our four boats catch). What a awesome weekend for these guys and everyone is going homeLoaded down with trout fillets!! Thanks Lonnie Barr for all you do. Big thanks to Capt T Miller, K Labat, E Rodrigue for running the other boats. Everyone got on a good bite. Shawn P Whitney had fried ribs and red beans cooked up for lunch upon our return. What a treat all the customers had the last couple days!! 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Beau Boudreaux and his dad have been fishing with me for five years now, the first four they experienced limits or near limits of reds and bass. They usually come the first week of July and fish in the afternoon. I was on vacation so we rescheduled for the second week of July, then bad weather and Hurricane Barry hit. We rescheduled for the beginning of August and finally got the trip in!! Unfortunately the fish did not cooperate on this day. We fished high and low, to only find a few fish. Always a pleasure having these guys on board and I look forward to their return in October. Day one with my anonymous crew found storms and rough seas to start the morning off. It was a adventure ride to say the least!! After getting around a huge storm, things calmed down and it turned into a beautiful day. Good tide, emerald green water but the fish were in lock jaw mode. We searched and searched only catching a couple fish at each stop. Day two found calm winds and calm seas. We started catching a few fish right from the start and thought things would be better. Well in the blink of the eye, the bite was over. We fished everywhere possible and some places twice. When we finally got on our best bite of the morning, a crew boat backed in prop washing and dirtying up the entire structure. Only one other fish to be found after fishing another six locations. With storms building all around us, we packed it in and headed back to the camp. Big thanks to chef Shawn P Whitney for all the fabulous dishes he cooked three days for everyone. Also a big thanks to Capt Kevin Labat and Capt Elton Rodrigue for running the other boats. Paul Eastin and family were back onboard the Blue Wave Boats. We started off the morning running to get live croakers, since the day before was tough on plastics. We started catching a few fish on plastic and croakers, and Shelbi Eastin hooked into a beast of a bull red (which made her day). We had a bad catfish incident but proceeded to fish dodging storms all morning. Stop after stop no luck even with the croakers. Emerald green water and good tide movement and no bite. We fished long and hard even with that live stuff and not much to show for our efforts. Hope your feeling better Paul, see y’all next time. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Wet and Wild Tuesday!! Coach Rodney Guin and crew is back again trout fishing. Our morning started off with calm seas and trout coming in on double rigged Matrix Shad. Once the bite slowed we made another move getting back on the fish. The sky turned black and winds shot up and forced us back in. The guys said no to fishing reds in the rain so we headed back to the camp. Always a good time with Coach and his crew. Thanks Capt T Miller for running the second boat. Day two with Coach Rodney Guin and crew on the Blue Wave Boats had us slinging in 20 inch trout!! As always, double rigged Matrix Shad did all the damage. Today there was no color preference as the big trout hit every color we threw. The ole Jus Grab It Glove was working over time today keeping my hands clean!! What a blast everyone had catching all these fish, another great trip in the books for these guys. Everyone enjoyed themselves at the camp and on the water. Thanks again Coach for the continued business and friendship. We look forward to the next time!! Big thanks to Capt T Miller for running the second boat. They also had a great catch. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Great day catching quality trout with my anonymous crew. The two girls 11 and 12 years old had a blast reeling in fish. Double rigged Matrix Shad did it again. Big thanks to Capt Kevin Labat and Capt Elton Rodrigue for putting Kevin Lauer’s crew on the fish today. All the guys had a blast. Capt Marty LaCoste 985-856-4477

Gaiennie Lumber smacked the trout today on double rigged Matrix Shad. Good times by all!! Thanks to Capt Travis miller, Capt Kevin Labat for running the two other boats and to Capt Lonnie Barr for taking care of Rick Ledet’s crew. Shawn P Whitney did a amazing job on all the groceries too, thanks buddy. What a incredible day as everyone crushed the trout. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

August 01 at 7:20am

Gaiennie Lumber crew was with us Friday. We covered some water catching a few fish at each stop never getting on the mother load. All quality fish on double rigged Matrix Shad. Saturday I helped Capt Travis with a two boat crew. We started the Morning off slinging in 17-19 inch trout on double rigged Matrix Shad. Not a fast and furious bite, but the quality of the fish kept us patient. Sunday morning Mike Bouterie and crew joined me. With thunderstorms everywhere around us fizzling out, we decided to go for it. After boating a handful of trout, the sky fell and the winds shot up as did the seas. We pointed the bow North and decided to reschedule. Josh, and Josh & Mike Gillen were back with me for a beat the heat trip. The night started calm and the winds steadily picked up and so did the trout bite. Double rigged Matrix Shad as usual did the damage. Always a pleasure fishing with these guys. Big thanks to Capt T Miller and K Labat for helping with Gaiennie Lumber crew and to Capt J Broussard for taking care of Scotty Muller. 985-856-4477

August 01 at 7:17am

Gordon Johnson and his kids were back with me on the Blue Wave Boats. We found a slow bite all morning long as the fish did not want to bite for us. We switched to plan B for reds and hooked two quick on gold spoons. Thought we had found them, but no others wanted to eat! With the heat rising and my crew needing to get back to Baton Rouge for a soccer game, we headed back to the dock. Richard Gaiennie with Gaiennie Lumber was back with with his boys. Double rigged Matrix Shad went to work on the trout. The bite was slower then usual, but we had some good runs and ended up with plenty fillets. Great time with these guys as usual. Big thanks to Capt’s Travis Miller and Capt Kevin Labat for running the two other boats. Thank you Chef Leonard Adkins for fixing up the crew with great groceries. James Matassa and crew jumped onboard the Blue Wave Boats with me and wanted trout! We knew it would be a little choppy, but nothing for the 2400 Purebay. Matrix Shad double rigs went to work as soon as we pulled up. The bite was a little slow for the first 15 minutes or so, then it picked up. We got on several runs of a fast and furious where everyone in the boat was slinging fish in every cast. We were chased in by a storm, so we went see if the reds and bass would bite. We sighted a few reds in the clear water, but they wanted nothing to do with our spoons or Green Hornet. Great time fishing with this crew, thanks again. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

July 11 at 7:40am

Rodney Trahan and crew joined me on the Bluewave. We found a extremely slow bite, as the specks were very finicky and not schooled up. We covered the most water I’ve ever covered in a single day and never got on a good bite of keeper fish. Tons of small 11 inch fish everywhere we fished. And just as many boats!! We worked long and hard for our catch. Thanks guys for sticking it out. Big thanks To Capt Lonnie Barr for taking care of Frank Lettieri and family for me they found a good bite and had a great day. Finally I have a little time off to spend with the family and get the camp finished. This morning I took the boys trout fishing. The shrimp were running for their lives as the trout were feeding fast and Furious. We slammed the trout on double rigged Matrix Shad as usual. With a storm approaching, we played it safe and headed in.....leaving the fish biting every cast. What a blast we had. We arrived to a fast and Furious non stop bite first thing this morning. We had the specks flying over the gunnels 360 degrees around the boat on double rigged Matrix Shad. They were also hitting the Matrix Mullet, what a great morning with the boys. We were rolling back to the dock by 7:30 and beat the heat. Another great day on the water with my boys!!! Slow start today on the specks, but the white trout were every cast. We left the white trout biting to go find specks, our next stop found five nice ones. One more move and we found birds diving and trout in hot pursuit of shrimp. Non stop action for the boys weeding through a bunch of 11 inch fish. Once we had plenty to fry, we left them biting to come in and get in the shade and finsh up working on the camp. 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.

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.
