  1. Talking Dularge Trout Fishing

    Dularge Trout Fishing

    3/19/12--I had the pleasure of fishing with Glen Bush,his wife Jean and their daughter Morgan from MS. On the second boat Capt Gerald Ellender fished with Marion Eister & crew from Nebraska. Our plan was to fish the open water reefs where we had been whacking the fish all week. We never got the chance as the wind was a steady 15 at daybreak and got stronger each hour. We fished 4-5 different areas looking to get out the wind. We found some protected shorelines with schools of mullet and found some really nice reds and trout. Broke out a red/white topwater lure and busted some nice 3 and 4 lb trout but missed more fish than we caught. Just don't know how a fish can smack a lure so hard and miss getting hooked by 3 sets of treble hooks. We caught roughly 40 trout, 7 reds and a couple flounder but most were caught on purple haze swimbaits under the mullets. Both groups had a great time doing the DU! We cancelled Tues and Wed trips but will resume our fishing tomorrow. Good luck fishing.

  2. Talking Dularge Trout Fishing On Fire!

    Dularge Trout Bite!

    After canceling all boats on Tues & Wednesday, Capt Travis Lovell got it cranked up again Thursday evening with Ben Overesh and crew. They caught 100 trout after the storms with most of the catch coming in the boat on topwater lures. Friday morning I fished with Jeff Aycock,Ben Wright,Tim Wright and Danny Fitzgerald from Georgia. We whacked 55 trout at our first stop on the reefs catching 14-18in. fish. Made a few moves to finish up with 100 nice trout by 11:00am. LSU chubs and an assortment of swimbaits did the trick. Every fish was caught in Lake Mechant/Sister Lake on the reefs. We did not fish under any birds. The key to finding the fish was to find mullets and good clean water. Capt Travis finished up Day 2 with Ben & the crew catching a great box of trout & reds on topwater again. Just another great day of fishing the DU!. Good luck fishing.

  3. Talking Saturday Trout Slam!

    Dularge Trout Slam!

    3/24/12--Busted up the trout Saturday morning 'DOWN IN DULARGE'! Our morning started off with hungry trout coming in the boat with double and triple hook-ups. LSU chubs and blueback swimbaits fished on the reefs had the fish eating up like we're used to! Pretty fish averaging 15-18 in. with hardly any throw-backs. It was great to have Dr. Frank Cardinale back on the big Blazer Bay. Joing Frank were Garland Hebert & Rick Tabor. These guys can fish and they wasted no time filling the big igloo. We fished until 10:45 catching 54 trout as the stiff north wind shut down the bite we were enjoying. I have no doubt we could have limited out with this crew if the wind would have remained calm. Good guys to spend a morning with as everyone had a good time. Good luck fishing.

  4. Talking Dularge Trout Biting!

    Dularge Trout Bashing Going Strong!

    Another great morning Saturday with 4 boats running with 200 plus fish!!!!!David Gil and the boys from Glazers rolled in Friday evening and were ready to fish. They had a crawfish boil off and both pots were pretty darn good! The crew was up early and ready to go with Capts Ricky, Gerald and Travis. All the fish were caught in Lake Mechant with an assortment of lures including the almighty LSU chub,swim baits and spoons for the reds. The guys spread out across the vast waters of the DU and did what they do best! Too bad the wind came up fast and chopped up the water or the numbers would have been much higher. Big fun with this crew and they are welcome back anytime!! Good luck fishing.

  5. Talking Sunday Slam!

    Sunday Trout Slam!

    Good day on the DU! A beautiful day to spend on the water! Where else would one want to be than on the DU slamming redfish and trout? Capt Gerald was busy with a film crew and catching some nice reds and trout! Jeff Aycock fished with me on Friday and wanted some more today. Fishing today with Jeff were Ben Wright,Mary Mercer Buquet,and Danny 'Songbird' Fitzgerald. Not much current today but it didn't stop this crew from filling the big igloo with fish. Ben had the first trout in the boat on his second cast and it was on!! Bunker swimbaits and LSU chubs did the trick on the reefs. Lots of boats chasing birds in Lake Mechant & Sister Lake but we stuck to the reefs catching larger fish. We found our fish in one spot and worked it hard. The fish were mixed with the mullets in 4-5 ft of water and we had to make them bite. We did just that!! 16 yr old Mary was the queen of the boat today as she was slinging in trout all morning and had a big red almost pull her off the boat. Called it a day just before noon and had a full box to show for our efforts! Great crew today as Jeff is a class act! Good luck fishing.

    Breton Sound meat haul on the Beach Tuesday. Onboard were Tim, Jens, Kenny, and Stan. The water was slick as glass on the way out and we headed straight out to the Sound. We made one stop and overfilled the fish box really fast. Before the last man could toss a dead shrimp on a jig head out two others were already hooked up and drags screaming. It was monster Sheepshead one after the other. I could hardly keep up with netting them. The guys caught and released a bunch more that we had no room for with a basket full that would not fit in the ice chest. We headed back in and made a couple stops in Eloi and picked up some pretty Trout at each stop. Most were caught on plastics under a cork and few on minnows. I had to empty the drink box and fill it up with the extra Heads and 20 Trout to top it off. The guys had a blast and left with a bunch of bags of the best eating filets in the Gulf.

    The fishing in Shell Beach is outstanding and the spring fishing is heating up. Campo’s is open with fuel, live bait, ice, and two back down ramps. Nice and easy launching with helpful advice from the Campo’s is waiting for you. For your next fishing adventure call United Charters. Very nice overnight accommodations are available. 504-439-1680.

  7. Talking Reds & Trout!

    Enjoyed a great trip earlier this week with none other than the Infamous Coogan Ryan! Chris and I joined Coog down at the lil camp on Mud Lake Pass for a good ole fashion redfish & trout slam on the DU! After a great stuffed pork chop supper the night before we got an early start in the big Blazer Bay. Our first stop produced about 15-20 nice trout but it didn't last. Probably could have caught more but somebody wouldn't put away a certain topwater lure which was.....ok I'll just say it....was useless! lol The fish wanted the swimmers and you got to feed them what they want!! However, our day ended with a bang as the three of us caught in excess of 100 fish keeping our 75 fish limit of trout and about a dozen nice reds. We chunked back some nice reds over the 27in. mark as we had all that we wanted. Blueback,Bunker and Glo/chartreuse swim baits worked best. We caught some nice fat reds on the Highlife swim baits too but the color blue was the ticket for most of the day! It had been a few years since fishing last with Coogan and Chris and I had a blast doing the DU! Good luck fishing.

    Default PIGS Are Biting!!! 3-23-12

    Capt Joel Wakeland and I made a quick afternoon scouting trip to find emerald green water all across lower Dularge. It didn't take long to start slinging in trout, reds, and flounder as the fish were feeding like it was their last meal!!! Nice sized trout today up to 22 inch's long. Avocado Matrix Shad, East Beast TTF Killer Flats Minnows, and glow/chart Cocodrie Cocahoes did all the damage. The fish wanted the baits slow just drifting in the current with an occasional twitch, in 3-8 ft of water. Good as it gets right now Down In Dularge. Thanks Joel, incredible trip!

    Thank goodness for SwampSwatter. The gnats were out at sunset.

    Default Trout, Reds, and Flounder 3-24-2012

    Another great day on the water with exceptional company. What a pleasure having Faron, Julie, & Mason Scioneaux back on board. Mason also brought his friend Wesley Chenier. The bite was a little slower today as we had to work for just about all our fish until our last stop. We hit a reef with nice clean water and the bite was ON!! Everyone in the boat was slinging in fish 1-2 at a time on the double rigs. We quickly doubled our catch within 20 minutes. Julie also hooked up with a 34 inch Bull-red. It gave her a great fight but Julie won the battle, after taking pics the fish was released to fight again. TTF East Beast KFM'S, Avocado Matrix Shad, COCO Pepper Cocodrie Cocahoes, and the new blue swimbaits all worked over the fish today. Steady slow retreive is what our fish wanted today. Thanks again guys and I look forward to our next trip.

    Give me a call as the action will only continue to get better!!
