    Dularge Overnight Rig Trip

    Pat, Maurice and I left out of Jug’s Landing in Dularge to night fish trout under lights. The weather was not as forecasted as the wind was not 10 mph with seas 2 foot or less. It’s was more near 15 mph nonstop with 3-4 ft seas all night. We managed to catch speckled trout in the late evening but there were plenty giant sail cats that intermittently tied us up. We decided to keep the larger ones after breaking off their spiny fins so that my ice chest was spared of punctures. It was a rough trip all night rolling around in the cabin with every wave encounter. At least we had air conditioning to cool off from the day’s blazing heat. We came in the next morning after not being able to catch any more trout only gafftops . Total catch was mixed gafftops and speckled trout around 75 pounds of fish.

    Crab Slam Trip

    This morning Pat an I left out to the Williams Blvd. Kenner boat launch and head to the Duncan Canal to go crabbing. I had 20 turkey neck baited crab nets. Crabbing started slow but after figuring out the right depth of water they were in and the correct way to pick up the nets with the current flow, we started landing a good number of crabs. I also shortened the leader lines on the nets too, so that the nets came up quicker before the crabs escaped out. We caught over a hamper of crabs. We came back home and boiled them all.

    Specktacular Sunday in Shell Beach, with Stephen Lacoste and his guest Phil. For a change of lately, the West wind was not blowing over 15 as we left Campo’s. We headed deep into the Sound and made one stop. Not a fast bite, with an unexpected number of throwbacks to weed through, but Campo’s live shrimp came through. With limits on ice and the temps blazing we headed to the house.

    Got this Saturday, July 18 open, along with a couple weekday openings next week.

    The fishing in Shell Beach is on fire, so get out of the house and get on the water. No better place to be. Call now to book your trip of a lifetime. Overnight accommodations on the bayou are available.

    All fish in the Suzuki powered Blazer Bay 2400 were caught with Campo’s live shrimp under a 4-Horsemen cork on Kast King rods with Penn reels, spooled with Kast King line. All fish removed and boxed with the one and only Jus Grab it Glove.

    Port Sulphur Solo Trip

    This morning I headed out to Port Sulphur solo to fish the areas of the outer bays and lakes southwest of the Freeport Sulphur Canal, but due to higher winds out of the west I was not able to make in the open water in my 16 ft flatboat. So I shift gears and headed to Lake Washington. The water was not that clean in certain areas closer to the Sulphur Canal and I wasted a lot of time moving around trying to find cleaner water, picking up a trout or two here and there. I did locate cleaner water and using live shrimp and artificial shrimp under a clicking cork I managed to catch some keeper trout— a total of 16. I had to work hard for these fish. I only saw one other boat out today in the area but many were observed heading out on the highway as I drove back home.

    Port Sulphur Trout Trip

    This morning Mike and I left out of Port Sulphur to fish the areas of Lake Grand Ecaille and Bay Ronquille. The weather was calm with clear skies and a high tide with good water clarity. We were armed with live shrimp and live cocahoe minnows. We fished these 2 1/2 feet below clicker corks . There were plenty juvenile trout in the area but we manage to put 32 keeper trout in the ice chest. Mike hooked a 5 foot long alligator gar on a dead shrimp and I tried to net it just to cut it loose as it was too big to put in the boat. However, the gar ripped through the net like a torpedo shot from a nuclear submarine, leaving a gapping hole in the webbing. Mike managed to still get the fish close enough to the boat where I managed to cut the line right below the cork, as we didn’t want to lose the special-made cork. We also caught trout under feeding seagulls that were diving to eat shrimp that were being chased up to the subsurface by feeding juvenile trout. Sometimes catching two at the time only to have to throw them back because they were under legal size. We had a fun trip with very good moving tides both incoming and falling. We estimated that all in all we must of caught over 70 trout.

    Redfish fun in Shell Beach. Today I had Forrest and Michelle on the Blazer Bay. This was Michelle’s first marsh fishing trip, and she put the first keeper red of the day on ice. We fished in the Biloxi marsh with Campo’s live shrimp under a Four Horsemen cork. It was a lot of fun watching the reds chase the shrimp to the surface and blow up on them. Even had a nice flounder to add to the limits of reds.




    The fishing in Shell Beach is on fire. The trout action gets better and better every day when the winds are decent, and the reds have been hungry in the marsh when it blows. We have plenty of open dates, so get out of the house and get on the water. No better place to be. Call now to book your trip of a lifetime. Overnight accommodations on the bayou are available.

    Speckled Friday in Shell Beach. Onboard the Blazer Bay were Pat, Brian, David, and Nathan. Pat and Brian have fished with me for years now, but this was going to be Nathan’s first ever fishing trip. There was a rain shower over the area I wanted to go to, so we stopped short to try a couple spots with not much action. Finally, the rain moved on and we moved to the rig I wanted to start at. When we got there the birds were diving all over the place. The trout were eating up and the guys had a blast. The cooler was filling fast, till the falling tide stopped and so did the bite. With plenty trout the guys wanted to try for some reds. We made one stop and picked up 8 keepers and released a lot of under sized ones. Fun day on the water and young Nathan is hooked and looking forward to his next trip.

    Last Friday at Shell beach I had Brian Renshaw, his son Tate, and Chris Talazac on the Blazer Bay. It was Tate’s 10th birthday and a fishing trip is what he wanted. As is typical when Brian books it was forecast to by windy, but at the first stop it was not bad. They managed to put some trout on ice, but before long the gale force Brian winds were on and shut the bite down. From there we ducked into the marsh to find some reds and the guys managed to put together a nice mixed box and had a lot of fun celebrating Tate’s birthday.


    I have openings this weekend and next week.

    The summer pattern is shaping up and the action will be getting hotter and hotter. Get out of the house and get on the water.

    Trout Tuesday in Shell Beach. Gary, Richard, and Paul jumped on the Blazer Bay and we took off in search of some speckled trout. Armed with Campo’s live shrimp we hit the Sound in nice conditions. We got on a good bite at our first stop, but it was short lived. From there we bounced around a few spots waiting on the tide to flip. The guys ground it out and ended up putting 75 trout and a red on ice.

    Spring is here and the trout bite is getting better every day. There is still excellent action on big bull reds and sheepshead if you just want to tangle with some really big fish, along with plenty of fish in the marsh on windy days.

    Hopedale Very Slow Fishing

    I left out this morning to head to Hopedale solo. Very foggy conditions but the water was clean. I had live shrimp and the fishing was extremely slow-fish had lockjaw. I contribute this to the stupid double tide we had today. Any time you see that, unless you are desperate, stay home. The latter was a good choice since I been staying home too long. I manage to catch some speckled trout, one bass, one sheepshead and through back a dozen or so under sized speckled trout. When the fog lifted it turned out to be a hot and pretty day on the water. Plenty boats out today.

    Trout Thursday in Shell Beach. Matt Lester and family were my guests for the day and a good day it was. They were in town from San Antonio and wanted to enjoy a day of Louisiana fishing. They were not looking to keep any fish to take home, so a lot of fish got really lucky, except for a dozen trout I kept for me and the wife. They had nonstop action from the start and all day long. The trout were really biting as were a bunch of sheepshead and several nice slot reds. We made a couple moves to try and find some big reds for the kids and did not find any at a normally good spot. There was a guy not far from us that was hooked up constantly. He hollered for us to come over near him and tossed us a few of the big gold spoons he was using. Sure as heck both the boys hooked up with some big redfish. The last two in the photo was a double hook up that ended a perfect day on the water. A special thank you to the Gold Spoon Man, you made those kids day.

    Spring is here and it’s time for the Sheepshead and Bull Red run out in Breton Sound. If you want fast action, big fish, and plenty of them, now is the time. There are plenty trout around too if that is what you are looking for. Now is also time to get your spring and summer trout trips booked now as choice dates are going fast. Call now to book your trip of a lifetime. Overnight accommodations on the bayou are available.

    Wednesday meat haul in Shell Beach. The Paul Denis group hopped on the Blazer Bay and off into the thick fog we went. We made our way out deep into Breton Sound to a small wellhead and the reds and heads were there and hungry. They released several big bulls reds and kept a few along with a box full of sheepshead. We made a stop on the way back to look for some smaller keeper reds and ended up putting 12 trout and few more heads on ice. Fun day with nonstop action.

    Hopedale/Delacroix Wild & Crazy Trip
    This morning Mo and I left out of Pip’s place and headed to a nearby lake not very far from the launch armed with live shrimp and various lures. Weather was calm and a little foggy to start out with, but the water was very clean. Our first spot with obliging speckled trout proved to be under-sized fish that had to be thrown back; we only were able to keep a few legal size ones. When we moved to another small lake, it was non-stop speckled trout action, but we had to release them as well because they were under size. Morning fishing was slow, but later in the morning we latched up with one huge black drum, which we released, as it was too big for food fare. And later we latched onto a beautiful golden bull redfish, which put up a hefty fight, caught on a live shrimp under a cork. We managed to catch a small mess of sheepshead and some large speckled trout to wind up the trip with a box of mixed fish.

    One good day and one tough day in Shell Beach. Forrest Fife and Dan Saterfield came down from Monroe for two days of meat hauling Tuesday and Wednesday. They really wanted to get out into the Sound for a Sheepshead round up and battle with some bull reds. Tuesday conditions were perfect with very little wind and plenty for tide moving a day when none was forecast. They loaded the box with heads in short order and a few reds to boot, releasing some other bulls. Wednesday was a different story. A front came through the night before and we left the dock in 30+ knot winds. Even with all the wind the water was hardly moving, and the fish were sluggish. The guys managed to put together a decent box of reds in some horrible conditions. Two fun days with two super guys.

    Mardi Gras Trout Trip

    While most people were out screaming throw me something mister and catching beads and doubloons, I was out catching a mess of fish, namely a limit of speckled trout and a bunch of sheepsheads. I fished solo today since my buddy cancelled last minute. There were plenty of boats out running around looking for fish on the Delacroix side, but the really clean water and action was on the Hopedale side. Fortunately, I caught fish in both places using live shrimp and various artificials when the live stuff ran out. This time of year the best technique is the “glide and slide” method, better known to the novice as drift fishing. For some reason, putting an anchor down can at times cause the fish to get lockjaw. The water was on the low side when I arrived this morning but the tide started to come in this afternoon. It was a beautiful day with light winds, made even better coming in with a load of fish.

    Good fishin',

    Shell Beach trout trip. Wednesday Steve, Greg, and Tim wanted to go look for the elusive speckled trout. There was some rain in the area, but it stayed away from us for the most part. We headed over towards Four Horse and made a drift picking up a few trout as we drifted along. As we drifted closer to a point we had multiple hookups, so I stuck us down and the guys started to work on the trout. Nothing fast and furious, but steady enough with some sheepshead in the mix. With a good pile of trout on ice the guys wanted to look for a couple reds. We made a small move, but only picked up one red and lost another, then casting out past the point there were some more trout. We stuck with that till the winds got ridiculous and the guys said they had plenty enough fish so we headed to the house with 61 trout, 22 heads, 3 drum, 2 blue cats, and 1 red on ice.

    Daddy daughter day in Shell Beach. Today daughter #1 Elizabeth finally had a day off from work while I had the same. We headed out for a quick afternoon day on the water. The water was super low and the wind was blowing pretty good, so we stayed close by in the MRGO. We had a great time together catching a limit of perfect eating sized redfish, while releasing a bunch of under sized reds. A couple tasty bass also hit the ice. It was a great day of long overdue together time on the water.

    Now that winter is almost over it’s time for big fish meat hauling out in Breton Sound. If you want big fish and plenty of them, now is the time to book your dates. Call now to book your trip of a lifetime. Overnight accommodations on the bayou are available.

    Tuesday With the Treuting Crew in Shell Beach. The Treuting crew hopped on the Blazer Bay and really wanted to catch some trout. With a strong front rolling through the night before stirring thin s up and dropping the water temp down near 50* I knew it would be tough, but off we went. After trying a few different areas with little to show for we switched to plan B looking for some redfish, and even they were finicky. Time for plan C. We set up in a deep canal intersection and started putting some meat in the box. The guys had a blast catching sheepshead one after the other, with a bunch of blue cats and even some of the elusive trout hit the ice. We ended up with a nice mixed box and had a great time.

    Saturday in Shell Beach I was joined by Mitchell Morgan and his son Mason. We headed into the marsh on a chilly, but pretty morning. Things started off a little slow with very little bait or fish activity at our first stop. I noticed some bait activity on the other side of the pond so we moved over and first thing Mitchell hooks into a big red. Next Mason put in a couple good eating sized reds before that action died out. We moved to another area and the guys started putting fish in the box a good pace, and by the end of the day the guys got their limits of reds and filled up the box with a nice mix of bass, and sheepshed.
