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.

Good customer David Deshautelle was back onboard the Blue Wave Boats today. Water temp was up, good falling tide, clean water, etc. the trout didn't want to play. After two hours and six trout and the rain approaching we decided to go 'catching'!!!! The bait shrimp went out and the Bay Snapper filled the K2 Coolers to the top. Big smiles on all the boys faces!! With the rain starting to fall hard and the box full, we took it to the dock. Thanks for the continued friendship and business David.

Good customer Steven Borel and Monica Borel joined me once again on the Blue Wave Boats. We found the water temps at 51, and the trout bite extremely slow. We picked away at the trout all morning covering some area. We waited till the tide switched, but they never turned on. With a mess of specks, some bass, and one red... plan B went into effect!! The Bay Snapper hole didn't fail us and we had them coming in every cast till we left them biting. Always a good time with these two, thanks for the continued friendship and business.

New customers Merlin Larmon and Pat Mcfarlain joined me today on the Blue Wave Boats. We left around 9 am and found a very slow bite. We picked at the specks and a few reds then made a move. We found the green trout stacked up and commenced to putting a hurt on them. Once the tide switched the trout started to come in the boat every-cast. The hot bite lasted 30 minutes then quit. Glow Matrix Shad slowly tight lined was the top producing bait for us. The guys caught trout, reds, bass, flounder, bay Snapper, and one big lost fresh water Blue Catfish!! Great time with these guys filling up the K2 Coolers, and I look forward to their return.

Doubled back this afternoon with my two man crew I had scheduled for tomorrow. My guys caught their fifty trout in 30 minutes and added a few green trout to the mix. The trout bite is literally as good as it gets right now. Glow Matrix Shad tightlined put a hurt on them. We had to leave the fish biting everycast! My crew said it was the best trout bite they have ever experienced!! Good times on the Blue Wave Boats

Kevin Kearny with Bell & McCoy was back with a crew on the Blue Wave Boats, the guys experienced the best trout bite of the year. Glow Matrix Shad tightlined put a hurt on the specks as it was lights out fast and furious action!! Always a pleasure fishing with these guys. Thanks so much for the continued business.

Now is the time to book your December and January trips. The bite has been insane.

Good customer Danny Lirette was back with me today with his brother in law. The guys crushed the fish all on Green Hornet Matrix Shad slowly tight lined, just doesn't get any better. The bite has been incredible and I expect the rest of December and January to be great. If you have waited all year to catch trout, now is the time to get your trip booked!!! Thanks Danny for the continued business, always a pleasure fishing with you.

This week will go down as the best trout fishing we have had all year long, the bite has been off the charts!!! I was able to take my youngest son Cade and his best friend Wes this morning, which I never get to do because I'm usually always working. These two boys busted up the specks all morning, what a awesome time I had watching them!! We kept 30 trout then left them biting to go scouting! Every fish caught today fell victim to the Green Hornet Matrix Shad tightlined, no fish under a cork. What a incredible morning making memories.

Easy as it gets this morning, as the specks were literally jumping into the K2 Coolers. Matrix Shad lures and Duce Rods put them in the boat. The specks have finally shown up in full force. December and January should be incredible, don't be left out looking at the pictures!!!

Good ole fashion 'meathaul' today. I thought the trout were going to respond today with the water temps where they should be, but they didn't. No problem, plan B went into effect!! The guys had a blast catching trout, reds, bass, and Bay Snapper. They went home loaded down with fillets. Great day with great company.

Herbert Carriere and family joined me on the big Blue Wave Boats. We only had a short time to fish, as they had to be back early. The trout didn't bite where we caught the previous day, so we made a move and found them close by. We caught tightlined on Green Hornet Matrix Shad and under the Four Horsemen Tackle corks with Shrimp Creole. After putting a mess of trout together, I was going to take them to put a quick mess of Bay Snapper together before heading in. Unfortunately, with 500 boats on the water.....every point, cut, crack and crevice had a boat on it and that plan didn't work out. We had a fun time in the few hours we fished. Thanks again!

Sonny Brignac and crew were back with me on the big Blue Wave Boats. The guys put a hurting on the big specks. Easy limits, as the big girls ate up our tightlined Green Hornet Matrix Shad and Shrimp Creole under a cork. It was so nice to see the silver back!! Looks like things are finally coming into place for the winter trout bite. Now is the time to get your December dates booked.

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.

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.
