    Default Blue Crabs Are Swarming In Lake Pontchartrain

    Two of us left out of the Williams Blvd Kenner, La. launch this past Saturday to crab at the Duncan Canal off Lake Pontchartrain. I had 6 traps and 12 nets and we caught over a hamper of blue crabs. Weather was nice, low wind and overcast skies. We boiled them all up and gave many of the cooked crabs to friends. If you going to crab with nets or hand-lines you don't need a fishing license. If you are recreational crab trap fishing you must have a basic fishing license and a recreational crabbing license for up to 10 traps. The traps must be tagged with your license number on the top center of each trap on a 2 inch stainless steel metal strip. The LDWF is out and checking boats for proper equipment and licenses where applicable. Here's a tip for baiting your crab nets with turkey or chicken necks securely: plastic tie strap them to the bottom center of the net, after cutting the center section of the necks all the way around the circumference to the bone, then tighten the tie strap in the cut section of the neck. You won't lose your bait.

    Shell Beach trout fishing has been on fire. It has been a very good summer for trout fishing, just have had to deal with lots of weather. Most all of the action has been at rigs in Breton Sound and the trout have been eating up and big out there when conditions permit. Live shrimp is still the bait of choice fished both under a cork or on the bottom depending on how the fish want it that day. I have been having trouble lately cramming all the fish in the ice chest, not a bad problem to have. I could post a bunch of photos of lots of happy clients and big piles of fish, but I will just put up a couple from one of the most recent trips. Talk about a pile of meat!


    If you want to make a meat haul of your own I have a couple open days this week and next. Give me a call, email, or text and get in on the fun.


    All fish in the Suzuki powered Blazer Bay 2400 were caught with Campoís live shrimp on Capt. Rory's United Charters custom rods provided by CUI Products with Shimano reels, spooled with Power Pro line. All fish removed and boxed with the one and only Just Grab it Glove.

    The summer has been great and continues to be, but fall is coming and with it some of the best fishing of the year. Get your fall dates booked now as weekend dates are few and the others will fill fast. Don't miss out on the fun, call now to book your trip of a lifetime. Overnight accommodations on the bayou are available.

    Default Port Sulphur Hot Day Dive Bombing Seagulls

    Port Sulphur Hot Day Dive Bombing Seagulls

    3 of us left out of Port Sulphur under partly cloudy skies and a breezy wind. Water was a bit dirty but the tide was incoming. Slow in the morning finding decent water and a fish bite. We moved from inside water to out in the bay where it was a bit choppy heading out. We encountered diving seagulls in different areas and caught speckled trout and giant gafftop sail fish. We used live shrimp and sparkle beetles and most of the fish were caught under the birds. The oyster reefs were slow fishing but as the morning went on the water got a lot cleaner.

    Default Port Sulphur Relentless Trout Bite

    Port Sulphur Relentless Trout Bite

    I left out of Port Sulphur solo and headed the open water near the camps in Bay Ronquille. Plenty seagulls dive bombing shrimp chased up by the pursuing jaws of speckled trout. The day was hot with a slight overcast and high tide. Action was hot under the birds that kept moving away from the boat. I was catching 2 at the time on sparkle beetles tight lined. The only problem was giant gafftopsails kept tying me up. Iíd catch a trout on one lure of the tandem and the other one a 5 pound gafftopsail. I released all the gafftopsails. I prefer not getting my ice chest punctured by their sharp fins. Best spot was when I came back into Lake Washington over a certain oyster reef I call arrowhead because the little grass island inside of it is in the shape of an arrowhead. Bigger specks were in this area compared to the open water of the Bay aforementioned. I left the fish biting and had more than I needed of fish by 10:30 am.

    Port Sulphur Hot Weather Hot Fishing

    Two of us left out of Port Sulphur this morning and headed to our favorite fishing lake. Water was high and incoming and fairly clean. There was hardly a breeze blowing under the overcast skies. It was hot action for schooling trout under diving seagulls. We used live shrimp and lures under corks and at time using tandem tight- lined beetles, catching two at the time on occasion. Plenty throw -back specks, but we managed to keep 40 trout.
    Thankfully I brought my large umbrella to use aboard to shade us from the schorching sun and heat.

    Port Sulphur Trout Explosion

    Two of us left out of Port Sulphur this morning under overcast, clam skies and incoming tide. Water in the Freeport Canal was river water but clean water was located off the canal in Lake Washington where non-stop trout action abounded. Seagulls gave way to locating the best action as they fed on shrimp escaping trout hungry jaws. Action on beetle lures in tandem yield 2 at the time hook ups at times. Action wore us out and we loaded the box up and headed in a little after 10:30 am.

    Default Catch Bigger Fish In Heavy Structure-No Hang Up

    This is the most effective fishing method Iíve found for fishing in the thick of submerged wrecks, pilings, rock piles, and jetties, etc. without hang up. I use 6/20 braided line on the reel and to the end of the braid I tie a 6 ft. 20 lb fluorocarbon leader. At the end of the 20 lb. leader I tie a very small snap swivel, the type that has no protruding clips (see photo). To this swivel, I attach a 10 lb. fluorocarbon line by way of an overhand loop knot; leader length of about 2 -2 1/2 ft with the Owner Twistlock 1/16 oz. 3/0 weedless hook and gulp on the tag end as seen in the video. The cork is clipped to the 20 lb leader according to your preferred depth. In the rare event that a hang up occurs, you can break the 10 lb line and save everything above the swivel. Iíve caught the largest of fish inside these type structures while others cannot fish them conventional style.

    Default Afternoon Big Trout Smackdown

    Day one with Steve And Ben Smith. My guys wanted trout so we decided to sleep in and go out in the afternoon once the winds calmed down. We arrived to calm seas and clean water for a first! It didn't take long and the trout were flying over the gunnels 1-2 at a time with our doubled rigged Matrix Shad. The bite came in spurts but we had mostly 18-20 inch trout hitting the deck of the Bluewave one after another. The action was sick at times!! Was so nice to spank the LAWGS and not have a bunch of boats all around messing up the bite. My crew mentioned they had never caught so many big fish and limit before fishing all over the state of Louisiana. A trip they will never forget. Thanks guys.


    Big thanks to Capt K Labat for putting Robert Laville and crew on a limit of trout also. Big thanks also to Capt E Rodrigue for putting Omar Madriz and crew from Texas on a limit of Reds and pup drum, they had a blast.

    Perfect Weather --Fishing Explosion Port Sulphur

    I left out of Port Sulphur this morning under calm weather and incoming tide. It couldnít have been a better morning given we had 2 weeks of solid rain and high, damaging winds. Without getting into a long story all I can say is fish were obliging every where there were oyster reefs. Seagulls were diving all across the lakes. Fish obliged on lures under corks, tight lined and on live shrimp. Most of my fish were all caught on lures. I got tired of catching fish. I had a box load of redfish and trout and was back at the launch before 11:00 am. Some of the trout were very large.

    Good customer Danny Lirette was back onboard the big Bluewave today. We wasn't sure what the weather was going to do, but it looked like we had a window. Our first and only stop on a point with moving water, found the reds stacked up and hungry. The fresh shrimp under a cork went out, and it was redfish Every cast! It literally took my crew about 25 minutes to catch their limit. We played catch and release for a while then took it to the dock before the rain came. Thanks Danny for the continued business.
