  • Capt. Moore/Fish with the King

    SHELL BEACH REPORT!! Capt Rory and Capt Mark fished for me today. They had the Richard Grashot group of 8 anglers. The tide was low low low and never came up today. Water temperature started in the 40’s and stayed in the 40’s. Both boats limited out on reds. They had 25 reds each in the 3-10 pd range. All the fish were caught on Campo’s bait. They are at it tomorrow and will post a report. Check out the pictures below. We are running a winter special and are on a good fish bite. Call 504 997 4960 to get on the books.

      HAMMER TIME @ THE BEACH!!!!!!!! Capt Rory and Capt Mark had beautiful catches of trout and reds today. Capt Mark left early and got on an outstanding bite with the Charley Campo group of 4 anglers. They had 100 beautiful speckled trout and 15 pretty reds. They did not have 1 throw back al l day. Most trout going 1-3 pounds. My brother Harry was also in the area. They limited out catching 50 trout and 10 reds. Capt Rory left the dock at 12 pm. They took Harry’s spot and were catching reds as fast as they could cast. I will let you know how they ended up with pictures. The fish wanted live shrimp today. Mark and Harry gave Rory their bait and went for the house. Talk about an action packed day. We have 2 boats fishing tomorrow and are cooking tonight at the lodge.

      • Ridiculous dularge reds/trout bite. 12-28-10







        Dularge bite off the charts right now, totally ridiculous. Started off the morning bright and early picking up my customers at the REEL INN. Robert Agee, Yuri Weydling (from Baton Rouge), LeeAnn Hilgendorf, Bryan Hilgendorf (from Colorado) had a good night sleep, as the REEL INN accomodations are TOP NOTCH. My crew didn't know what they were in store for as we departed the camp. Within five minutes at our one and only stop it was NONSTOP ACTION!!! We had reds coming in the boat everycast!!! After putting our 25 fish limit on Ice and playing catch n release with another 25 we had to move away to keep them off our lines!!! Trolled about fifty yards when the first trout hit the deck, dropped the power pole and it was FISH ON!! Everyone was slinging in beautiful yellowmouths one after another. suttle winter bite on bottom, everyfish caught on plastic baits as usual. I had to resort to filling up a champagne basket as the 120qt was stuffed full. GOOD AS IT GETS RIGHT NOW. BIG thanks to Capt Bob Lake for the referral today and to my crew for WHACKING the fish. Thanks guys. Good seeing all my fellow dulargers catching limits of reds and trout also.

        • December fishing off the charts 12-29-10






          Had the pleasure of fishing with BJ Schilling and Lonnie Barr today. These guys are hardcore fisherman and were ready to put the SMACKDOWN on the reds and trout. Our day did get off to a slow start only catching about ten reds (mostly ratreds). We left our honeyhole to look around and only found one more red. Our third stop found the reds STACKED on top of each other....EVERYCAST BABY!!!!!! BJ had never caught reds everycast before and was amazed at the bite. LOL. After catching over fifty plus reds we decided it was time to look for trout. With the winds picking up it looked it like the trout bite was shut down as no one was catching anything (totally opposite from yesterday). Got a call from my good friend Tmiller saying he was on some trout. Made a quick move by Miller and 'IT WAS ON' (thanks again TMiller). Lonnie and BJ started slinging in the trout almost everycast in spurts! We filled up the box to the top again today and left the fish biting to head in. Dularge bite is off the charts as this has been the best December bite that I have experienced. Tons of trash talking on the boat today!!! GOOD TIMES FOR SURE. Thanks Lonnie, looking forward to our next trip!!!

          • Windy day trout/redfish bashing 12-30-10






            Good to have Kirk Breaux back onboard today with his friend John Kelly. Kirk has been having trout withdrawals and needed a fixin bad!!!! John hadn't trout fished in two years and was smiling cheek to cheek just being on the boat! LOL. Kirk and John got just what they needed as we WHACKED the fish in all this wind! We left the dock at 10:00 and it only took us two stops to fill our limits. First stop found 21 trout biting on the bottom with a super slow retrieve and about 10 reds. Second stop had our limit filled catching everyfish under a cork. We caught 20 reds only keeping 5 for the grill. 1 lonely flounder and drum made the box also. My crew could not believe that we were able to catch so many fish in such horrible conditions. Dularge is the place to be as it can't get any better!!! Thanks guys for another great trip to add to the books.

              • New years eve trout/red bashing







                WOW, WOW, WOW IS ALL I CAN SAY!!! Matt and Sammy Reitzell were back onboard with me today to witness another trout and redfish SLAM. FIve days in a row of limits. Dularge has been on fire as the bite has been explosive. What a way to finish off 2010. My customers have caught (but not kept) over 200 reds and 400 trout in the last five days. INSANE action to say the least!!! One stop is all it took this morning to put 75 nice trout on Ice. As we left the trout biting, I let another fisherman take my spot to get on the action. Fished two locations to get our limit of reds. All trout caught under corks. Awesome day and good times fishing with Matt and Sammy again. I look forward to our next trip guys.
                Happy New Years everyone

                • Dularge Trout Bite Remains ON FIRE 1-4-11







                  Good times Down In Dularge SMASHING the trout again today. Corey Salvadras, Jeremy Mouch, Eric Prejean, and Blake Bourque experienced a great trout bite today. These guys were all veteran fisherman and had no problem figureing out the technique to catch them. We fished four locations catching fish at each stop. Two spots produced better results than the others and our last stop is where we really crushed them. Bite was as good as it gets and we left the trout biting after boxing our 125 fish limit to look for reds. The reds were more elusive today as we only caught 7 keeping 2. Salt Water Tackle Holographic Minnows did all the damage today. Big fun with these guys today as they were a great bunch of guys to fish with. Thanks again guys !!
                  Tightlines guys and gals !!!

                  • Speckled trout smackdown 1-5-11






                    Can it get any better? The trout bite has been incredible and looks like it will continue!!! After picking my customers up at THE REEL INN fishing lodge we were off to our one and only stop!!! What a pleasure today fishing with Randy and Kathy Davis from Shreveport. An awesome couple who love to fish together and trash talk on who's catching the most fish!! Well I can tell you Kathy was slinging in fish one after the other (she can fish)!!!! When we pulled up to our first stop and Kathy caught a trout on her first cast, I knew it was going to be ON!!! We had the fish coming in from every direction as it did not matter where you threw. Good as it gets Down In Dularge. We finished up just in time to beat the rain and get back to the camp. One red and one flounder added as a bonus!! Saltwater Tackle Holographic Minnows did all the damage again today. Thank you so much Randy and Kathy for the wonderful company today. I look forward to fishing with you again.

                    • Raining Spots and Dots

                      RAINING SPOTS AND DOTS!
                      Al Godwin and I met at Rocky and Carlos for lunch yesterday then headed down to Hopedale for an afternoon fishing trip. We headed out in rain suits with a light rain falling determined to catch some fish. It was not long and the rods were bent over. The live Campo shrimp on Al’s rod and bayside shad plastic in avocado on mine had some nice speckled trout jumping in the boat. Well the rain got harder and the thunder louder and the only two fools out on the water were having a ball catching up speckled trout one after another. After getting our limit of trout on ice we went after the reds trolling the banks with shrimp under a cork with 5 nice ones in the box and a few small ones released and we headed for the dock A Beautiful afternoon fishing. Glad you made it A, looks like we started off the new year right!

                        Awesome day today fishing with Tony Fontenot, Luke Paige, and camera man DC. We filmed a trout show for Sportsman Paradise this morning. Its going to be good as we had the trout biting just about every-cast. Real good stuff!!!! Had a blast filming the show and fishing with Tony and Luke. I know they had as much fun as I did too!!! We called it quits with fifty fish on ice and left them biting. Back at the dock by 10:00 so I could take care of some other business. Dularge Bite is as HOT as its ever been, give us a call if you want in on the incredible action. Thanks guys for making the trip such a success today.

                        • Sick action in dularge 1-7-2011






                          Jason (BURN HACK) Koenig and Danny Templet joined me today for another Trout and Redfish BASHING. Got a early start to only find six trout at our first stop, Hmmm. Well the action started off very slow with only 30 trout and 1 red after fishing four locations. Well our fifth and final stop found the MOTHERLOAD of fish! 'FISH ON AND BURN HACK' is all you could hear as we were slinging in fish one after the other. After quickly filling the box with our limit we played catch and release for A while then left them biting EVERYCAST!!! We only had to move about fifty yards when we found the reds stacked up. We caught close to 40 reds if not more only keeping 10 as there was a bunch of rat reds mixed in. The action 'DOWN IN DULARGE' has been SICK!!!! Today makes nine trips in a row with limits and HAPPY CUSTOMERS!!! Fun time with you guys and I look forward to fishing with you again soon. THANKS guys.
                          Good seeing, fishing by, and trash talking with my BOYZ Chris V and TROUTHOG!!

                          • Wow,wow,wow ten in a row 1-8-2011






                            Kirk Mosing ,his 12 yr old daughter Maddie Mosing, and 13 yr old Kelnisha Castlle joined me today. My crew experienced the best fishing trip of their life getting to catch their first full limit of fish ever. The girls (and Kirk) had a blast reeling in the yellowmouths almost everycast. The fishing is OFF THE CHARTS as there is no way it could get any better. Today made ten trips in a row catching limits of fish every trip and close to 1000 fish brought to the cleaning tables just from my boat alone. One stop and we had our 100 trout and left them biting. We didn't even have to troll 20 yards and started catching redfish one after the other!!! We had at least 30 reds hit the deck with only 8 making the box. Plenty small rat reds in the area but still fun to catch. What a great time watching the girls reel in all the trout and seeing the excitement in their faces. Nothing better, Take your kids fishing!! Salt water tackle holographic minnows duing the damage as usual. Thanks again to my crew for making today's trip so rewarding!! Look forward to fishing with you again Kirk.
                            I've been booked solid, but have some dates coming available if you want to get in on this insane action.

                              I jumped onboard this evening with Chris Venable, John (Pieo) Falgout, and Rodney (TROUTHOG) Bourque to BURN HACK THE REDS. All it took was one stop and we boated right at 100 redfish. The cold water temps have the reds stacked by the thousands. Easy as it gets as they will eat anything you throw at them. Lots of laughs, BURN HACKING, and trash talking going on as we had the reds coming in one after the other. Looked for trout but none to be had today. We will see what the next couple days bring. Great time today guys, always fun fishing with y'all.

                              • More burnin and hackin today 1-13-2011







                                Tony Breaux, Brayden Breaux, and Joby joined me this afternoon to BURN HACK the reds. Left the dock around 2:45 and was back at 5:45. Easy as it gets as we caught 30 reds in 1hour 15min, only keeping our 20 fish limit. The guys had never experienced red fish stacked up like that before and had a BLAST reeling them in. To my surprise we also caught 3 trout. Water temp was 43.5 degrees and most of today's fish were holding in 8 ft of water. Swim baits did all the damage. Never a need for live bait here in Dularge. Great time guys, glad we were finally able to put this trip together. No other boats on the water, I only saw one other boat out and they had just arrived back at the dock when I was pulling up.
                                Give me a call while the bite remains RED HOT!!!!!

                                • Hopedale Low Water Croaker Redfish Trip

                                  Hopedale Low Water Croaker Redfish Trip

                                  Today Tammy, my daughter, and her husband Tony from Kansas was visiting this week, and I took them fishing in Hopedale this morning. The water was extremely low and falling when we left the launch. The trip started slowly with no fish caught in the inside marsh lake and lagoons until we went to the MRGO damn near Breton Sound Marina and fished the bottom with market shrimp. We caught small croakers but it was better than catching nothing. After boating a mess of croaker, we decided to head to a nearby canal leading into Hopedale Lagoon where several boats were all catching redfish. We got into them also and had a blast pulling them in. Many were under sized but we did catch a half dozen of very nice keepers. We left them biting and, after we picked up the boat and headed down the highway, we noticed plenty roadside fisherman near the bridge in Hopedale all catching redfish like crazy. One store owner that is near the bridge told us that they’ve been catching them like this for 3 days straight. The main reason is the water level is extremely low and all the bait and fish are in the deep main canals. Roadside anglers of all ages converged on the area and enjoyed non-stop redfish action rarely seen to this degree.

                                  • Hopedale Cold Day, Low Water Trout Slam

                                    Hopedale Cold Day, Low Water Trout Slam,

                                    Today I left out of Hopedale solo to fish Lake Ameda. Reports had it, slow trout fishing this time of year due to cold water temperatures. I already knew this, having fished all seasons in Louisiana waters for over 40 years. The water temperature was 52 degrees under partly cloudy skies and cool weather. This was a warmer temperature than previous trips where it was 42 degrees. I checked out a few of my favorite spots, one of which yielded 2 under sized black drum and one undersized redfish. I went into the lake and checked out another spot, but nothing was obliging until I headed to the middle section of the lake. Lake Ameda is an oyster-bottomed lake and, like any other oyster bottom lake, warms quickly as the oyster shells hold the sun’s heat, warming the water quicker than mud or sand bottom counterparts. At first things were looking bleak, I was not catching any trout, but there were 2 other boats and they weren’t catching anything as well. So I changed up the fishing strategy to accommodate cold water fishing: 6/20 braided on the reel with 4 ft of 10 pound Vanish line tied to it and a ¼ oz. jig head on the business end with a Saltwater Assassin Opening Night and an egg clip-on cork 3 ft above. I dipped the lure before every cast in Berkley Gulp solution. After casting it out with a slow retrieve, I realized this was the ticket to success. Trout were obliging and in quick order. Don’t get me wrong, I had my days where I watched others catch fish while I watched and couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t. But, today, was my day—my turn! I didn’t see any of the other boats land one fish during the time I was bringing aboard speckled trout in good order with few under sized throw-backs. I limited out—25 keepers—and headed back to the launch by 9:30 am. As I drove back, passing up several other boats along the way, I still witnessed not a fished landed by any of them. It was my day!

                                    Pictures show my box of speckled trout, the low tide at the launch ramp, traffic heading back into New Orleans I-10 west bound, and me driving solo.

                                      FUN DAY AT THE BEACH!!! Woke up this morning to a white out fog at 6:30 am, waited until 8 am to leave the lodge. Had the pleasure with Andre Savoi, Bucky and his son Beau. Capt Mark put a new 350 Yamaha on his Privateer and we took it on its maiden voyage. We made 3 stops and filled the ice chest to the top with drum, sheepsheads, 2 reds and a trout. The fish ate up Campo’s dead shrimp on the bottom. The guys fished really well. The fog was real bad this morning but Mark has radar on the boat and that really helped. The tide was low and rolling out. I’m looking out to the window and there is 8 ft of bank showing. If you are going fishing tomorrow and not sure where you are going be careful. With the fog and the low water you can get in trouble fast. Running a winter special right now. Check out the web site and give me a call 504-881-9966.

                                      • Hopedale Foggy Trout Day Trip

                                        Hopedale Foggy Trout Day Trip,

                                        Today Brandon, Ryan and I left out of Hopedale under calm, foggy and chilly conditions with low tide to fish Lake Ameda. Few boats out due to low visibility in the early morning. Fishing started out very slow with not one bite except for the gnats, which were biting better than the fish. After trying several different areas and experimenting with different presentations, we finally found the right combo: Saltwater Assassin opening night cocahoe lure with 1/8 oz. screw jig head under weighted egg clip-on corks, slowly and steadily retrieved. We used braided 6/20 line on the reel with 17 pound mono tied to it of about 4 ft. length. The fish were hitting very slowly, but we did manage to work them up into a feeding frenzy for a good while. Most boats we observed were not catching much fish as the trout were very picky about the right presentation. Water was very clean and as the day went on and the sun burned off the fog, fishing picked up and then dropped back off to a halt. It was around 10 am before the fog cleared all the way out and the sun broke through an overcast sky. We ended the day around 11:00 am with about 40 speckled trout and had a blast drifting and catching fish as the light breeze propelled as across the lake.

                                        Good fishin’,

                                          very foggy @ the beach!!!!!!!! We left in the fog and came out the sound in the for. Capt marks boat sure is nice on a white out day. Fished today with al woods ryan rob joe and capt mark. Went straight out on a meat haukl. Had the usual catch of reds heads and puppy drum. Went to a rig and mark dropped a dead shrimp down and bam trout!!!!! Another rfish came up and another trout. Put plastic on the jig head and caught 34 fast. As fast as it started it stopped. Looks like it is going to be a good trout year in the sound. The fog never did lift in the open water. All the fish were caught on campos dead shrimp and plastic. We are on a good fish bite. With the warm weather the trout fishing should really turn on. Trout and reds in the marsh. Big fish in the sound. Have it your way. Charter info 504-881-9966
