    Default Catch Bigger Fish In Heavy Structure-No Hang Up

    This is the most effective fishing method I’ve 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. I’ve caught the largest of fish inside these type structures while others cannot fish them conventional style.

    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 couldn’t 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.

    Default Speckled Trout Smackdown 6-6-17

    I helped Capt T Miller out with another two boat group. The wind shifted to the North and finally quit blowing 20 plus mph. We had planned to fish for reds, but the customers wanted to gamble!! They wanted trout and wanted to roll the dice and see if they would bite. We headed to the trout grounds and immediately started reeling in doubles on our Double rigged Matrix Shad. The water was a little stained but we had a good 8-10 inch visibility. The bite was insane as it was every cast as fast as the baits hit the water with trout up to 21 inches. Most of the trout averaged 15-18 inches. We pretty much had non stop action with a couple short lulls in between. It surely was a unreal bite and a trip I'll never forget. Thanks guys for everything, and thanks to Capt T for setting up the trip.

    Port Sulphur Perfect Trip

    I left out of Port Sulphur under perfectly calm weather and overcast skies. The water was on the high side and incoming and clean. I made my usual stops over reefs and wrecks and out into Bay Ronquille fishing camps. All spots produced speckled trout caught on sparkle beetles tight lined and live shrimp under corks. At some spots trout were caught two and the time on tandem beetles.

    Windy Wednesday at the Beach. I had the pleasure of having Steven and Liz Schlesinger onboard. They were in town from New York and wanted to experience our Louisiana fishing while enjoying the city. We ended up with a little of a late start due to a transportation issue, but plan B got them to the dock. Due to the winds it was a plan B on the fishing too. We stayed close and fished in Lake Borgne and the MRGO with Campo’s live shrimp and you name it they caught it. From Trout, Reds, Drum, Sheepshead, to even Bass, Perch, and Mangrove Snappers. They both had a great day and caught a lot of fish. I cleaned up some of their catch and they took it to the Bourbon House, where chef Eric Cook treated them like royalty and prepared their catch in many different ways, personally coming out and explaining each dish.

    All fish in the Suzuki powered Blazer Bay 2400 were caught with Campo’s 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 Spring bite is getting hot and Campo’s has live shrimp that the Trout are eating up. Don't miss out on the fun, call now to book your trip of a lifetime. Overnight accommodations on the bayou are available.

    Fun Friday at the Beach for Frank and MaryAnn. They were in town from Florida and wanted to get in a day of fishing. We started off on the edge of the Sound were I got on a good Trout bite a couple days before and Frank caught a really nice Trout right off the bat. We picked up about a dozen or so keepers, but the bite was slow and the fish turned small, time to go. Headed to a wellhead in the Sound to find 2 boats already on it, so we went to a rig not far from there. Turned out to be a good move. The bite was steady except for a few interruptions by Bull Reds, and before we knew it our limits were full. It was still a little early so we made a stop for some more Bull Reds for them to fight. The Bulls were there and so were a few more smaller Reds to go in the box along with a bunch of Sheepshead. With no more room in the box we headed to the house. It was fun day with lots of action. The Trout were caught on Campo’s live shrimp fished about 4’ under a cork, and the Bulls and Heads with shrimp on the bottom.

    Port Sulphur Slow Trip on The Usual Spots

    Two of us left out do Port Sulphur weather was perfect. Tide incoming. The water was not so clean in the usual areas. We fished live shrimp and had plenty micro tout stealing bait. Long story short, we ran low on live bait when we figured out where the clean water was and the trout were biting: The sulphur mine. Too little; too late. We came back with about 20 trout.

    Time to catch up at the Beach. I know it has been a while since I last reported, and I will try to do a better job with the reports. The fishing in Shell Beach has been great. The early spring has everything starting early and it looks to be a great summer. There are still some Trout in the interior waters, but most of the action is pushing out to the outer bays. Still plenty Redfish in the marsh, but the Bull Red and Sheepshead action in the Sound has been insane when the winds allow. This Monday I fished with Prayson Pate and his son Harrison. They were in town to have some fishing fun, but did not want to keep any fish to take home so catch and release was the plan though I did keep some Trout for the house. We started off on the edge of the Sound and got on good Trout bite of some really nice and fat Trout with live shrimp under a cork. After easily catching their enough Trout we shifted gears and looked for some Reds. We setup in a deep pass and fished with shrimp on the bottom. The guys had a blast fighting the big Reds, catching and releasing a bunch of them. It was a fun day of action with a couple of great guys.



    I have this Friday and Saturday open. Give me a call to get in on the action.
