    Helped Capt RD today with a three boat charter. Winds were up and things looked grim this morning. We made some adjustments for the wind and started to slowly fill the K2 cooler. Shrimp Creole Matrix under a cork was our top producer with Lemon Head second fishing over reefs. The guys had a blast as it turned out to be a great day. Definitely has been one of the most productive September's of trout fishing that I can remember and the worst for red fish. The fall and winter trout bite should be incredible.

    Michael Tuite and Matt Davis were back onboard the Bluewave with me. Trout was our target today and we accomplished our mission. The guys have come close to limiting out several times but have never had a full trout limit before. That changed today!! Double rigged Matrix Shad lures went to work on the specks and you know they can't resist them! Matt even got to battle a big bull red. Always a pleasure fishing with these guys, thanks again.

    Default Port Sulpur Started Slow Trip

    I left out of the public launch solo under very calm weather and high tide and headed to the oyster reefs in the nearby lake. I had live shrimp and various plastic lures and the first spot was virtually dead but the tide was expected to fall and this is what I was counting on for the action to get started. I moved here and there, picking up a few speckled trout as I moved deeper in to Lake Washington. As I fished, I always keep an eye open for diving seagulls which is a dead give away for feeding trout. But for the most part, I didnít see any until later into the morning and in only one spot as far as my eye could see. After anchoring, trout were coming aboard in fast measure, having to throw back under sized one more than I cared to do. They obliged mostly on live or dead shrimp, but I did catch some on minnow lures, sparkle beetles and Berkley Gulps under a cork and tight-lined slow retrieved. I limited out (25 trout) and was back at the launch and on the road for noon.

    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.
