    Default Port Sulphur Low Water, Slow Fishin Trip

    Two of us left out of Port Sulphur armed with live shrimp to fish the oyster reefs in the area Wednesday. The water was 2 feet low and was murky. Fishing was extremely slow with a total of 20 trout caught. The tide was incoming in the afternoon and the water condition got a little better but by that time we had run out of live shrimp and resorted to lures. The trout obliged better on the live shrimp so the fishing was extra slow using beetles under corks. But like By Heck use to say: “Fishing is a pleasure; catching fish is a bonus.”

    Port Sulphur Beautiful Day

    I left the launch Thursday morning under bright, calm weather to head to my favorite area armed with live shrimp. The fishing started out slow but picked up as the rose above the horizon. The trout only wanted live shrimp and would hardly hit a lure. The water was decent with a low tide but incoming as the day progressed. Besides catching a limit of speckled trout, which I had to work hard for this trip, I also landed a 25 lb black drum. Last week I caught one but released it. They are feeding on top the oyster reefs.

    Port Sulphur Redemption Trip

    After the last week’s horrible trip due to bad weather, this one was in complete contrast. I left out of Port Sulphur under overcast skies and dead calm winds. A low pressure was heading in, bringing rain around 12 noon, but I figured I could beat the weather. The water was a bit low but very clean with an incoming tide around 11 am. I was armed with live shrimp and headed straight to my favorite oyster reef spot. I was there before the sun rise and the fish didn’t start biting until it came completely above the horizon. From then it was non-stop trout coming aboard, nailing live shrimp under a clicking cork. I caught them till I ran out of shrimp and then switched to lures. The trout weren’t too interested in the lures, but I still had a limit of fish. I headed back to the launch at 10:30 and the rain was threatening, with a slight drizzle, but by then I was on the road headed back home.

    Horrible Day out In Port Sulfur

    Two of us left out of Port Sulphur. The water was low and dirty and the predicted winds were off by 15 miles per hour. Went to our usual area and the water was chocolate milk. Make a long story short, 3 fish caught: 2 sheepshead and one huge black drum which was released. Saw a few other boats and didn’t see a fish caught. Several other boats were launching around noon when we returned, but the winds were getting higher. The water was at least 2 feet lower from normal, making even my flatboat difficult to venture into usual haunts.

    Fog Hogs in Port Sulphur

    Today all three of us limited out on trout, fishing oyster reefs off of Freeport Sulphur canal. We used live shrimp, minnow lures and beetles under corks. It was very foggy at one point and overcast throughout the morning. Tide was low but incoming. The winds were low to calm. On the way back diving seagulls were nailing shrimp chased up by tout in hot pursuit. Couldn’t fish any more as the box was full and limited out.

    Good fishin’

    We suited up for the cold ride to the trout grounds and waited for light to depart! Upon deploying the Motorguide Xi5 I noticed the water looked clean despite the strong North wind. We moved around in the 6 ft depths and shortly all three of us hooked up at the same time!! We all had big smiles and thought the switch was on! Well, we picked away to about 15 fish. We made several moves trout Fishing and soaking shrimp with not much luck. With 21 trout and a red in the K2, we decided to circle back to where we had caught the most fish. Well the plan paid off, as the trout turned on! We had the big yellow mouths jumping into the Bluewave one after another. The specks ate up our Green Hornet Matrix Shad slowly tight-lined. Despite the wind and the cold, we prevailed. Thanks guys for another great day.

    Default Good Day in the Du

    Tom Jeffrey and family were back onboard the Big Bluewave with me today. Our first location found a few Specks, reds, and a lost big ole green trout. Second location had numerous rat reds with only one keeper, time to move. Third stop we found specks willing to bite over shallow oyster reefs. Fourth stop we pull up and it's every cast over a 3 ft reef. We did plenty moving to get a good box. Every fish came tight lined on Matrix Shad lures in various colors. We tried throwing a cork without any luck. Thanks guys for the continued business.

    Default Friday The 13th Good Trout Trip

    Friday The 13th Good Trout Trip

    Three of us left out of Port Sulphur under darkness and light fog to head to our fishing spot near Lake Washington. Water was a bit dirty and we had no bites for 2 ˝ hours trying our familiar places. After moving around and returning to a previous spot, we managed to get into a good trout bite on live shrimp and after running out used artificial lures like sparkle beetles. We caught 67 trout and called it a day around noon.

    FUN DAY AT THE BEACH!!!!!!!!! Had the pleasure of fishing with Travis Garrison and his friends Bob and Dara. Bob and Dara were in town from Connecticut. We fished at Biloxi marsh with Campo shrimp catching 75 speckled trout, 4 sheepshead, and one bass. All the fish were caught on Campo's live Shrimp. We have been on an outstanding speckled trout bite and I look forward to it being a good winter with the warm weather we're having the fish are active. Give us a call 504-881-9966. YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU DID !!!!!!!

    I jumped onboard with one of my best friends since high school Brandon Grezaffi for a late afternoon trip. I knew the water temps had come up and the trout should be feeding. We had a good incoming tide and calm winds. As soon as we pulled up and stopped it was fish on just about every cast. If you weren't reeling in a fish you were missing one. The trout could not resist our Matrix Shad in Holy Joely and Limbo Slice slowly tight lined. Fish were so stacked it didn't matter where you threw, just good as it gets. Don't miss out, call now to get on the action while it's hot.
