    Port Sulphur Oyster Reef Specks

    Today Glen, Rocky and I left out of Port Sulphur launch under calm weather and overcast skies. The tide was super high covering the parking lot of the launch. It wasn’t long before we found the diving seagulls and trout under them. Nice size trout, not school trout using live shrimp and various lures under corks. We loaded the boat pretty quickly with non-stop action.

    Had a big crew back with us staying at the Reel Inn this afternoon that fished. We departed the lodge at 1:15 and headed out sort of blind, since we haven't fished in the afternoon. I decided to check some reefs I haven't fished yet, and scratched on the first three stops. Our fourth stop had us picking at some small fish and iced down three keepers. Things were looking grim and not sure what was going to happen. The tide wasn't moving yet, so I had high hopes of the fish turning on once the tide started moving coming in. Our next stop was to another reef. I started drifting from South to North with the wind pushing us throwing the Matrix Shrimp Creole "Shrimp" under a cork. After hooking our first fish the Power Pole was deployed. It was game on afterwards!!! The tide started to move and the bite got hot and heavy. Every cast action under the corks in 3 ft of water. No throw back small fish, as all of the fish were 14-18 inches. It was insane and non stop. If you weren't catching a fish you were missing a fish!! Our count went from 3-51 fish before the bite shut down. We drifted two flocks of birds catching all dinks, then focused mainly on reefs. Our last stop had us finishing it off with a steady bite of 13-16 inch fish all under corks. Incredible time with my two man crew. Thanks Capt T for setting up the trip, and great team work between our five guides on the water.

    I had Leland Willis and Leland Willis Jr from Florida with me. We headed to the trout grounds armed with double rigged Matrix Shad. The shrimp started skipping the surface with the Specks in hot pursuit. It didn't take long as we were all slinging specks into the boat 1-2 at a time. 50-50 ratio of keepers to throw backs. With 25 specks iced down I got a call from one of my team members Capt Rob. He was on a hot bite, so we decided to make a move since our bite was slower than I was looking for. We arrived on location to find multiple flocks of birds diving. We drifted through a flock and after the birds moved on, the bigger fish started to bite. I locked in the Motorguide Xi5 and we all were slinging in fish 1-2 at a time again! 90% of all the Specks were keepers. This bite lasted a good 30 plus minutes putting us up to over 50 fish. We hit one more flock with the same thing happening, the birds left and we continued to drift with the school catching keepers. With 72 trout in the K2 and the bite slowing down, the guys were not worried about a few more fish. We switched gears to soaking crabs and battling the bulls. Plenty big nasty drum were fought and boated and one nice 29.5 inch red boated and saved for grilling. It was a pleasure to fish with these guys and I look forward to their return.

    Default Port Sulpur Trout Trip Blast

    Port Sulpur Trout Trip Blast


    Wednesday 2 of us left out of Port Sulpur’s public launch under calm weather and high tide to head to various spots in Lake Washington and the patchy islands in Bay Ronquille. Areas in about Lake Washington was slow fishing and water was a bit dirty. Plenty shrimpers in the area possibly the cause. We moved out to the open areas past the sulphur mines to head to the marshy island spots in Bay Ronquille, checking out areas for clear water and seagulls diving. We got into a good bite of nice sized specks and small white trout and one big 8 pound sheepshead. We limited out on the specks. Wind picked up over 15 mph out the east making it a rough ride back to the Freeport Sulphur canal. One block from the launch, we ran into clean water and seagulls diving; we caught a few more specks and picked up the boat to head home.

    Joey Amorello and crew made it into the lodge Wednesday night. Joey cooked up a great steak and potato dinner and a incredible bread pudding. We woke up and loaded the Bluewaves up and off to the trout grounds! It didn't take long before the shrimp were running for their lives being chased by hungry trout. Our double rigged Matrix Shad lures quickly went to work slinging in fish after fish. Once the smoke settled 62 fish were taking a ice bath. The bite shut down earlier than it has been. We moved on to another location picking away under corks. Then soaked crabs only finding one redfish. We focused the rest of the day on trout finding big schools of smaller size fish with few keepers but got our total up to 80 trout. A incredible day as the guys had a blast catching all the fish and laughing and joking all day.


    Thanks Capt Miller for running the second boat putting the guys on fish also, good times.

    Day 2 with Mike Baumann and Jim Larrison was another success. The trout ate up our double rigged Matrix Shad once again as they are feeding heavy on shrimp. Green hornet, shrimp creole, glow are the colors we used today. After icing down our limit we headed to the redfish hole. We found a perfect falling tide and figured the bite was going to be on fire, but it wasn't! One drum and three reds hit the deck. We moved all around seeing if we could locate them without any luck. We fished three other locations before calling it a day. The guys are going home loaded down with fillets. Thanks guys for two incredible days.

    Mike Baumann and Jim Larrison from were back with me today. Our morning started off by getting stopped, boarded, and checked by Coast Guard. The guys were very professional and friendly, once the inspection was complete we were on our way to catch trout. We found a good flock of birds working and the double rigged Matrix Shad went to work. It was fish on every cast! Most were coming in two at a time. We made quick work of putting our limit into the K2, then headed to the redfish honey hole. We dropped two crabs down and had two hook ups. This started it up as the reds were stacked and hungry. My guys caught reds every cast till about 10:30 when the tide quit. Incredible day for these guys as they had the time of their life.

    Bill Van Roekel from Missouri got to enjoy a Dularge Trout slam, then reel in a few bronze backs. The trout are finally starting to show up in better numbers. Our first stop found birds and shrimp running for their lives. It was fish on until a $&@&$ driving a oyster boat drove directly through the 200 plus birds diving. We moved on and found another school and once again had them coming into the boat every-cast. Our third move and same thing! Catching every cast and a crabber motors right through the birds and shuts us down. Got to love it. One more stop and fish on again!! We threw double rigged Matrix Shad in any color, it didn't matter. 9:30 we moved to the redfish honey hole to find a slow falling tide. Bill hooked one nice red and nothing else wanted to bite. We made a few more moves fishing crabs with no luck except a big nasty drum. We hit the shallows with spoons with no luck, then back to check the honey hole one more time. This time we had six quick hook ups back to back, then we took it to the dock. Great day and fishing with Bill, and I look forward to his return.

    Shane Duplantis and the REXEL crew were back at the lodge with us. We had a great night and shane cooked up his famous shrimp stew and tator salad. Our morning of fishing started off extremely slow as the day before. Zero reds on crab so we moved to the shallows. We found one red to bite. Soaked crabs in another location and caught one more fish. On to the shallows again and one more red and bass hit the box. It was looking grim! Four fish in the box at 11:30. We made one more stop and found a pot of GOLD!! The motherload of hungry reds eating everything in sight. It was every cast as fast as the crabs hit the bottom. Double, triple, quadruple hook ups. We went from having 3 reds to our limit of 20 in 20 minutes. Complete insane action, it was exactly what we needed! The slow fishing prior was completely forgotten!! LOL Thanks again guys for a incredible day.



    Big thanks to Capt A Kyzar and Capt E Rodrigue for running the other two boats and showing the guys a great time.

    Had a four man bachelor party group, the plan was to hit the reds in the shallows then look for trout. We fished prime redfish area with beautiful water only to find one red. Hit a couple points with shrimp...zero. Plan B we hit the lake and coast for trout. First stop produced a handful of keepers, second stop as soon as we threw out the corks were going down then nothing, third stop had a slow steady bite with keepers coming in the boat. The bite fizzled out so plan C went into affect. We hit the pass and dropped crabs and the drags started singing. The bachelor hooked into a monster that was peeling drag!! The big black drum was huge when it surfaced...it weighed 52 pounds, biggest drum that I've ever seen or caught out of my boat. We added a puppy drum and smaller bull red. All the bigger drum were released. Plan D next fishing for bass!! Only one taker bass and we put another red in the box also. Slow bite for the most part and a long day and many miles covered doing everything possible to put these guys on fish.
