I helped out Capt T Miller on this day, Taylor Matherne and family were back with me on the Bluewave. 25 mph winds once again had us fishing protected areas with them live shrimp under a Four Horsemen Tackle cork. We picked at them and put together a good catch. Fun time fishing with this family once again, thanks Capt T. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Second trip with Gaiennie Lumber crew found another very windy day with winds topping 25 mph. We picked up live shrimp and picked away at the specks under Four Horsemen Tackle corks. Tough day for us but we still had a great time. Big thanks to Capt T Miller and Capt Shawn P for running the other two boats and Capt K Labat for putting Lyle Thomas and crew on the fish the following day while I took the day off. They smashed the trout on double rigged Matrix Shad. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Another trout slam with Wayne Forrestor and wife on the Bluewave!! Double rigged Matrix Shad put the hurt on them once again. Fast and Furious action again as the bite was off the charts. Wayne got to experience the best bite of his life, catching the biggest trout he’s ever caught, and catching doubles for the first time. Always a pleasure fishing with this couple and I look forward to seeing them back two more times in June. Thanks again. Big thanks to my son Seth for deck handing for me, he did a great job. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Day 2 with Ben and James Wheeler was off the charts!!! We hit the trout grounds and they were hungry and waiting. We put a quick Smackdown on our 75 trout with double rigged Matrix Shad and was headed to the shallows by 8am. We fished for about 45 minutes throwing gold spoons without a bite and my guys threw in the towel. Thanks guys for the continued business over the past 12 years. Big thanks to Capt Lonnie Barr for putting Joey Hedrick and Chance Webre on a incredible trout bite as well. Just can’t get any better!! 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Day one with good customers Ben Ratcliff and James Wheeler found two monkey wrenches in the wheels!! 25 mph North winds and low water, cant get a break. Well we went for it and tried for trout, but it was so rough I couldn’t keep the boat in place. We put 7 on ice and returned to calm waters. We headed into the marsh hoping we had enough water to get skinny. Well we got lucky and stuck 8 reds before the tide dropped too low all on gold spoons. The day turned out way better then I originally thought, thanks guys for sticking it out in horrible conditions! 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Richard Espinosa and family were back again on the Bluewave for another trout slam!! Wind has been the theme for most of May and this day was no different. We picked up live shrimp and found some protected clean water and commenced to putting a beating on the trout under Four Horsemen Tackle corks. Once the bite played out we switched to double rigged Matrix Shad and continued to sling them in the boat. Another great trip with great company. Big thanks to Capt Kevin Labat for taking care of Mark Gaueho’s crew, they got on a good mess of trout also. Good times. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

First trip of the year with my Gaiennie Lumber crew found another windy day. We picked up live shrimp and fished under a Four Horsemen Tackle corks in protected areas. Boats on top of boats everywhere making it difficult to fish anywhere. We caught what we could and fished hard till it was time to throw in the towel! Always a pleasure having Dan Sullivan and his Mississippi crew with us, thanks again. Big thanks to Capt Austin Lacour and Capt Elton Rodrigue for helping run the two other boats and showing their crews a good time. Big thanks also to Capt Jared Broussard for taking care of Johhny Lancon’s crew smashing the trout. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

We woke up to thunderstorms and high winds, I told my crew to go back to sleep. We got up a couple hours later and saw a window of opportunity and took it. Extremely rough seas heading out, after finding some protection we started picking away at some trout. We never got on a fast bite, but picked away at some throwbacks and keepers. After fishing a good six and half hours the skies turned black and it was time to roll. Fun time with these guys in really tough conditions. Big thanks to Capt J Broussard for taking care of Johnny Lancon’s crew, they ended up catching some reds on their afternoon trip. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Helped out Capt T Miller on this day. With the winds up we had to tuck and hide as much as we could. Half of our fish came on live shrimp under a Four Horsemen Tackle cork and the other half on double rigged Matrix Shad. Thanks Capt T for putting the trip together. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Charlie and Kayla Chandler experienced a incredible trip on the Bluewave. We had our limit of trout in 45 minutes, then went catch bull reds. Our first 8 trout came on Shrimp Creole Matrix under Four Horsemen Tackle corks, then the rest of the limit was on double rigged Matrix Shad. My crew both had bent rods and had the time of their lives. Kayla caught a 31.31 pound bull red, her biggest ever. Fun time with this couple, thanks again. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

More 25-30 mph post front conditions with Steve Smith and son made for another grinding day. We started out fishing for reds in the ponds with gold spoons hooking four, boating two. Switched up to trout and started picking away at them under Four Horsemen Corks. Tide quit and the bite quick and we packed it in and headed back to the camp. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Good customer Dr Mike Tuite was back with me on the Bluewave. 30-35 mph winds made for tough fishing conditions, but we stuck it out and put ten on ice. Gold spoons and bait shrimp under Four Horsemen Corks put them on ice. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Brian Thompson and David Bowley had a blast picking pumpkins out the patch. They experienced a fast and furious redfish bite, easily catching a limit on gold spoons. The reds were aggressive and eating the spoons up like they were going out of style!! Always a blast fishing with these guys. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

May 19 at 9:42pm

It just doesn’t get any better. Good customer and friend Jack Legendre was back onboard the Bluewave with family and experienced one of the best bites ever!! Double rigged Matrix Shad and the new X Shad put a hurt on the big specks as they just can’t resist them. What a awesome time, can’t wait for his return in a couple weeks. Big thanks to Capt Kevin Labat for running the second boat with Brian and David again. They also smashed a quick limit of trout. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

May 17 at 8:32pm

Sid Lyons was on the Bluewave with me and experienced a awesome bite. The trout were hungry and ate up our double rigged Matrix Shad like there was no tomorrow. After our limit at 9 am we left the trout biting, what a great day with Sid. Big thanks to Capt Kevin Labat for running the second boat with Brian and David, they put a good lick on them too, good times. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Chuck Bardwell and family joined me on the Bluewave, we found a slower bite on this day. Double rigged Matrix Shad lures accounted for all our fish. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

We had a early morning limiting out with customers, so I was able to bring my boys out for a afternoon trip! We fished for a hour catching 30 nice trout tight lining double rigged Matrix Shad and the new X Shad (which are awesome), we left the trout biting. Always fun making memories with my kids!! The trout bite has been incredibly good, I don’t see any sign of a decrease in the population at all. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Jacob Richard and crew joined me on the Bluewave. Within minutes of pulling up we had boats all around us, it looked like a parking lot of boats!! Luckily we were on a decent school of fish and started catching right away. With so many boats and all the pressure on the fish, the bite was decent but not like the day before. Good times with these guys putting a decent box of fish together. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

No one is selling live shrimp in Dularge. You can buy live shrimp in Cocodrie or from the Tracie Macie bait boat depending where he Is located.

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.

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.
