Gaiennie Lumber crew were back at it again with me!! We finally had calm seas and winds and the trout responded. My crew went to work as soon as we pulled up. Double rigs and singles Matrix Shad after all the sharks destroyed our fish and tackle. Always a great time with these guys, thanks Scotty for all you do. Thanks Capt Shawn p and Capt Kevin for running the other two boats. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

David Tankersley and crew were back with me. Our morning started out slow, high winds and rough seas made it tough. We covered a lot of water picking at them most of the day on Matrix Shad singles and doubles. We stayed out late, and at our very last stop we doubled our catch. With the heat cranking and the bite shutting down, we took it to the dock!! 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Gaiennie Lumber crew were back once again. We dodged storms and the seas kicked up with winds. We battled it out and caught quality over quantity all on Matrix Shad lures. Thanks Capts Travis and Kevin for helping out with the other boats. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Ryan Deaton and the boys were back with me. We dodged storms all morning and got on a hot run of fish, but tons of small fish. We weeded through the smalls ones keeping what we could. A few more moves and we got on another hot little run before calling quits. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Day two with coach Rodney Guin and crew was nothing like day one. No tide movement most the day and fish just didn’t want to bite for us. Way more moving around catching a random fish here and there. Thanks again guys. Thanks Capt Kevin for running the second boat. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters

Coach Rodney Guin and crew were back with me again. We finally had calm winds and seas and the trout bite was great! The sharks were so bad I had to switch the guys to single jig heads using Matrix Shad as always. If you don’t have the fish up on the surface skimming the water they get eaten. Great day with these guys as always, thanks Coach. Thanks Capt Kevin for running the second boat. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

First Annual “Jack Fest Memorial” in remembrance of a very good friend Jack Legendre was a success. Never a dull moment with Jack, he was always cutting up and making everyone laugh. Jack loved coming down to Dularge to fish and we always had a good time over all the years. Jack kicked started this big group fishing together last year, so this year 26 guys got together to meet up again and do it all over in remembrance of Jack. Fun time was had and lots of great food, fishing, camaraderie, a few cold beverages, and many stories were told. Special thanks to Justus Corley and Brent Ward for getting everyone together to make the trip happen. Weather wasn’t perfect for us with winds up causing rough seas and storms, but all the boats caught fish both days. Our trip on my boat day 1 was cut short due to some sea sickness issues, so no pics from day one. Day two was better as we got on some trout early before being pushed in by a huge storm and blackness across the entire gulf. We came in and soaked crabs and the guys had a triple hook up on “big nasties” the first drop. Everyone got to feel the pull of the drag pullers!! Great time with good people, miss you Jack. Big thanks to Capt’s Travis, Kevin, Jared, Lonnie, Shawn, and Austin for running the other boats for this big crew. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Gaiennie Lumber crew were back at it again with us. The bite started out slow, but after a few moves it was on every cast on double rigged Matrix Shad. Always a fun time with this crew, thanks again Scotty Muller. Thanks Capts Travis and Shawn P for running the two other boats. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Warren Saucier and crew were back with me again. Slow steady bite all day as the guys picked away at a good box of fish on double rigged Matrix Shad. Thanks guys for the continued business. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Helped out Capt Shawn P with a group from Texas. First stop was a bust, so we made a quick move and started catching. Sharks were bad again eating our fish and tackle up. Double rigged Matrix Shad as usual accounted for all of all our fish. We left the specks at 10 am to go soak crabs, guys hooked one huge bull red but it broke off on the trim tabs unfortunately. Thanks Capt SP for setting it up. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

August 04 at 9:04am

Gaiennie Lumber crew was back again with three boats running. Everyone had a slow start with no tide and not much going on. We made a few moves then found a hot bite. We had them coming in 1-2 at a time on Matrix Shad soft plastics. Missed the rain and had a good time, thanks Dan Sullivan for putting this one together. Thanks Capt’s Kevin and Jared for running the other two boats. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Helped out Capt Travis three days with a crew from North Dakota. Day 1 we soaked crabs for big fish and threw some gold spoons. Day two we trout fished, day three we trout fished and soaked crabs. Thanks T for setting it up. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

July 27 at 4:00am

Helped out Capt Travis on this trip. Tough fishing the last few days, between the sharks, trout not wanting to bite and 100’s of gaff tops. Lots of running around. Thanks Capt’s Shawn and Jared for taking care of Drew and Craig’s crew for me. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Gaiennie Lumber crew was here for their second trip of the year. We wasn’t sure about the weather but we woke up and skies looked clear. We found pretty water and started catching right away on double rigged Matrix Shad. The problem was the sharks were so bad it was hard to get the fish in the boat. If you didn’t have them skipping across the surface they were eaten. We managed what we could then the bite completely shut off. We waited patiently but they never turned back on. Storms were building around us so we headed back to the dock. Thanks to Capt Travis and Shawn for running the two other boats. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Day two with Wesley/Kelley Carambat and Durel/Anne Matherne was a little bit slower than day one, but we still put a good lick on the specks. No hot fast and furious bite, but a slow steady one. Double rigged Matrix Shad like always accounted for all of our fish. We stayed dry all day too, despite all the storms that have been around. Great two days with these families, thanks again for the continued business and friendships. Thanks Capt T Miller for taking care of the kids, they had a great day. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Wesley and Kelley Carambat and girls were back with me on their annual trip. The bite was off the charts!! We left the fish biting everycast, as they ate up our double rigged Matrix Shad like crazy. A school of bull reds came through while trout fishing and hit every line, we landed two of them. Incredible day!! Thanks Capt T Miller for running the second boat with Durel and Anne Matherne, they also crushed the specks. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

July 21 at 8:42am

Chip Legget and family joined me on a wet stormy day! We dodged storms, went through a storm and caught some Trout!! We got ate up by sharks bad, but still managed to put a mess together through it all. Double rigged Matrix Shad as always did the trick. Good times with you, thanks. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

July 21 at 8:40am

Finally a calm day for once!! We found clean water and the trout responded. Double rigged Matrix Shad busted the specks up as usual and we left them biting. Big sharks showing up eating your trout if you don’t get them in quick enough. Good time with my son and friend Allen Robichaux. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Roy Carroway from Texas was back with a big group for three days. Day 1 was two boats out, myself and Capt T went look for trout early but found rough seas and dirty water. We quickly switched to plan B, and went look for reds. More dirty water, wind and then the sky turned black. Not much to show on day 1 Day 2 we had six boats out, artificial, shrimp under corks, and cracked crab put some reds and drum in the box. A few lost specks also made the team. Much better day and everyone had a blast. Day 3 found the same thing with most all boats putting reds and drum in the box. We had two boats that found decent catches of trout. Again, the crew had the time of their lives. Despite the terrible conditions the last few days, we made it happen for the guys. Thanks Roy for the continued business. Thanks Capt’s Travis, Kevin, Jared, Lonnie, and Austin for helping with the other boats. 985-856-4477 www.absolutefishingcharters.com

Good customer Wayne Forrestor and family was back with me. High winds made it tough for us. We had to retreat to protected areas and boats were out in full force. Every place we stopped we were surrounded by boats which made it very tough to fish. We made the best of the situation and did what we could. Always a fun time with Wayne and his family. Thanks again for the continued business and friendship over the last couple years. Thanks Capt T for running the second boat 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.
