We enjoyed another good week of trout fishing but cancelled this mornings trips and may have to do the same tomorrow as the forecast is not looking good. Hopefully we'll get a reprieve from the weather as we have 6 boats schelduled to run tomorrow.

We enjoyed another great trip Monday slamming the yellowmouths. Ron Bartels & Kenny Olivier from Schriever,La along with Clinton Trahan from Sunset,La. joined me on the big fish catching blazer bay. It was a great morning to do the DU as the weather cooperated and the trout were hungry. My crew couldn't have been any better as these guys can fish and our 100 fat trout by 10:00 am proved it!....

Great trout action on the DU! Our trout fishing is about as good as it gets. The good news is that the trout have finally shown up at the island and ship shoal platforms. No need to go that far just yet as I've limited out by 10:00 am the past 3 days in the Sister Lake/Lake Mechant area. For you guys in the smaller boats,there are still big numbers of 16-20 inch fish in the.... Read More
Monday morning trout slam! Steve Coon,his dad Chuck and Travis Callais joined me for a quick trip to bust up some trout. It had been a couple years since Steve's last trip and it was great to have him back slinging in hungry yellowmouths. The crew jumped all over the fish at our second stop with bunker swim baits. Everyone got in on the fun as the trio were hooking up.... Read More
A rough week of fishing as the wind won't give us a break. After slamming the trout on Monday the wind machine kicked up big time Tuesday through today.

Another great day of fishing 'Down In Dularge'!
Incredible non-stop action on Monday as the yellow-mouths were eating up big time. A very foggy and slick calm morning and once we located the fish it was over quick with 75 18-20 inch fish. We stopped at 75 and could easily have caught our 100 fish limit but we didn't have any more room to put them. Fishing with Tony Fontenot and I were my son.... Read More
Sunday,March 10 will be a day that Gary Rogacki and J.C. Robinson will remember for a long time. Woke up and ready to go at 5:30 a.m. from the 'Lakehouse' for another day of slamming the trout. J.C. told me while drinking his last cup of coffee that they wanted to catch rat reds up to 10 lbs since they 'mastered' the trout & bull reds the previous day. I said the customer is always right so.... Read More
After we caught our limits of trout on Saturday morning in quick fashion the guys wanted to try their hand at catching big bull reds. Afterall this was Gary Rogacki and J.C. Robinsons first trip to south Louisiana and they wanted to experience it all first hand. We headed south after a lil break from busting up the trout in search of the bronzebacks. It didn't take long to find.... Read More
The spring trout migration is in full swing guys! The trout are on the move and leaving their deep winter holes. The mass migration is heading south and the fish are eating up everything in their path. This trend will continue for another month or so as the fish make their way to the gulf to reach higher salinities. Gary Rogacki & his lifelong friend J.C..... Read More

I fished the last 2 days making some quick afternoon trips . Sunday evening was the best catching 35 nice trout in less than 2 hours on LSU chubs and bunker swim baits. The trout were in 5-6 ft of water and the fish were very nice running 24-18 inches. Yesterday afternoon we duplicated where we fished on Sunday but a lot had changed in 24 hours with a terrific wind and water levels a ft or two.... Read More
Running of the bulls! A wild and very windy day on the DU today. Got a call from Joseph Del Signore from California who found my website online. He wanted to put his 2 young sons on some big south Louisiana redfish. I told him to look no further and a week later they were on a jet to Cajun country. They arrived last night at the 'Lakehouse' and we were off at 7 am to find.... Read More
Day 2 for my Michigan crew was a huge success. Tom Alquire,Joe Auffrey and Jim Powers flew down to catch redfish and that got what they came for. The guys have caught and released 50 plus fish.

My Michigan snow birds arrived today leaving behind 2 ft of snow . They came down south to escape the harsh cold and tackle some big south Louisiana redfish. We left from the 'Lakehouse' at noon and returned at 4 pm with a wore out crew. The guys busted up the reds catching one fish after the other. Their first redfish ever and they loved it! It was a first for many things as.... Read More
