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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Default Another Fish Kill in Dularge 3-19-2012







Finished up a 3 day charter with Dr Randy Davis's group today. Randy had to head home to have knee surgery so today I had John Luscher from Washington on my boat. Capt Travis Miller and Capt Chris Venable had their same crews as previous days. It was 'Fish On' once again from daylight on. Who says you can't catch fish in the wind? LOL. Avocado Matrix Shad continues to deplete the trout population as its the best Bait on the Du right now. Cocodrie Cocahoes in Mardi Gras color also put its fair share of fish in the Yeti. Fish were caught in 3-8 feet of water with a slow retrieve with a twitch of the rod tip. The guys are going home with over 1000 fillets and can't stop talking about their trip and how much fun they had. Even in the toughest conditions imaginable Dularge continues to produce box loads of trout in the 14-21 inch range. Right at 50 flounders also hit the box's in the last three days, along with the redfish. Incredible the fishery we have been blessed with. Over 800 fish have hit the deck of my boat just in the past 7 days, just incredible. Thanks to all the customers and Capts who make all the trips a 100% success, thank you for your hard work. Looking forward to the guys return in June when the fishing is good!!!!! LOL!!

Give me a call if your looking to get in on the action or want to learn the area and be consistent on putting fish in your box.

Talking Springtime Fishing

Dularge Trout Fishing

No place better to be fishing than in Terrebonne Parish right now! The speckled trout are on the move and are migrating south with a big push to the lakes and bays. The trout we are catching are dark black in color indicating the fish are leaving their winter time refuges behind. They are eating up big time during the migration as they prepare for the April spawn. All the major bayous and canals north of Lake Mechant,Sister Lake and Moncleuse Bay are holding large concentrations of trout as we speak. These fish are already making their presence known on the shell reefs and numerous islands throughout the Mechant/Sister Lake area. The lakes are loaded with small pogies and croakers with good size shrimp starting to show up as well. Nearly 1500 trout have been caught in the last 10 days by our guide service and the best is yet to come! The trout are of good quality in size with fish averaging 15-20 inches on most days. Of course there are plenty of school trout under birds for the taking but we would rather target the larger fish. The trout we are catching have been feeding mostly on small pogies and croakers and swim baits have been working best in purple haze,bunker and blueback colors. LSU and Cajun Pepper chubs are good too but the swim baits imitate the small fish they are eating and are a better choice for catching larger fish. For whatever reason, this spring has been so far one of the best in years. It should last right on through April as we move closer to kicking off our summer season. We have 8 great captains that specialize in putting our customers on fish every day. Accommodations are no problem with 3 camps for lodging up to 40 people! South Louisiana has many great fishing destinations but I truly believe that our area (Cocodrie,Dulac & Dularge) is unique and the numbers of fish we catch on a daily basis is hard to beat. Good luck fishing!

Talking Reds & Trout/Terrebonne Parish

Big fun on the DU the past couple days with Frank Robinson and his son Patrick. This being their first trip to south louisiana, they wanted to experience a little of everything. Strictly catch and release as they were not interested in taking fish home. Both guys loved the brute strength of the bull reds the first day. Today we caught reds and trout all morning as the guys really enjoyed something that we take for granted. Patrick will be heading back to New York and Frank back to California with some fond memories 'Down in Dularge'! Good luck fishing.

Talking Terrebonne Parish/Sportsman Paradise

Big fun on the DU for a crew of first timers from Kansas City. The Schnieders family decided to skip out on Mard Gras and wanted to go fishing. They certainly picked the right day as the weather was perfect for a good ole fashion trout slam. The family including Jim,Tom,Michael,Kristen and Isaac put on a show filling the big igloo with 13-18inch trout. Kristen caught her first ever redfish and it was a good one! All the fish were caught on swim baits in various colors with blueback being the best color. I'm sure they'll be back for 'seconds' real soon! Good luck fishing.
