This past January proved to be one of the best Months of the season. Although we only had one hard front during this month we had very good pre front and post front fishing. February was warmer then usually which forced me into the interior marsh to target spring time fish that payed off with […]

After a warm October it was nice to have some solid cold fronts come through and push some big fish into their normal fall/winter spots. Cooler temps also brings some warm lunches for some of my foodie anglers…
As many of you know I’m not big on miss leading people into booking with me. I’m all about being as truthful as possible in order to manage expectations. With that being said… This October was by far the worst October I have ever experienced. It wasn’t a shock considering the water temp pretty much […]
I can’t complain about this summer’s Jack season. Although I had to deal with constant west winds and the floods in Baton Rouge pumping dirty water into my main Jack fishing area we had a very successful Jack season.
Although we have had constant west winds, which is our least favorite wind direction in Louisiana, the Jack fishing has been very solid. We have had some good pushing fish on the flats and lots of schooling action in open water. We boated a total of 35 jacks on fly in 12 days of fishing. […]
During the summer months we try to get an early start to beat the heat, fortunately summer is one of the best times to hunt pushing fish. Both Redfish and giant Jack Crevalle become very active at this time. Their mornings are spent cruising flats in search of bait. Although we start earlier with low […]
This has definitely been one of the best spring seasons I’ve seen in a while and it’s looking like the good fishing should continue into summer. The fish in the interior marsh have grouped up and a 20 + fish school has been a common occurrence. The temperature is the only problem with this time […]
It’s that time of year again when the water warms and the grasses start growing, filtering the water. The interior marsh goes from a milky mess to a sight fisherman’s paradise within only a couple weeks. The season starts around March with a few pockets here and there clearing up. As the grasses continues to […]
Late February into early March has been pretty good this year. Although the water clarity has been some of the worse I’ve seen at this time of year, luckily the tailing action has continued to be good. The average size of the big fish has been impressive too 28-31 lb range(42-46 in). Probably switching […]
Recent pics… Start it off with a quick duck hunt I had on a bad weather day. Roll Tide.
My buddy Mike from the shop is packing up and moving to Denver. After fishing Louisiana marsh for years and never having a good opportunity on a trophy fish we decided to make it happen. After adjusting our presentation from smacking the fish to actually leading the fish we started getting true refusals on the […]
I fished these four days with two young men visiting from Japan. Since my clients spoke very little English, we had to rely on the basics of fishing to communicate. During this four day trip, my only interactions with these young men consisted of “cast here”,” reel fast”, “reel slow”, “jig” and “set the hook.” With […]
We had a great day this day with non stop shots at huge floating bull reds. The fish were so happy they were daisy chaining on the surface with their tails waving in the air. It was a sight to see. Even though some fish were being picky with the bite we had so many […]
Finally had a good weather day with calm winds clear skies and warming temps. This was the switch that got the big fish moving. Everywhere we stopped there were big fish floating and hungry. We landed many fish but this was by far the most unique one.
Here are some picks from the last successful trip I took out of Venice before the water rose and brought with it the chocolate milk. Partly cloudy with every bit of a 30 mph wind.
This has been a great fall so far. As the temperature drops and winter sets in the game changes but the results should stay the same.
I had a great time fishing with the Greens. They were both great anglers but Daniel at the age of 12 is better then most adults I have seen. Daniel can not only see the fish, accurately cast at the fish (with distance), but also remembers to strip set on the take. Needless to say we had […]
Had a friend come in town to buy my old boat and while he was down we decided to go look around Venice. We found clear water big redfish and sharks lots of sharks. The redfish were being a little difficult to get to bite so we went after the sharks. We got 3 to […]
David and Kevin of baton rouge giving it their best, as was I , rough water, dirty water, 50% clouds, approaching front, 20mph ESE winds with gust, fish would not go out of their way for the fly’s and shots at VISIBLE fish where few. These guys fished hard! Had some shots at 30lb. jacks […]
I fished the IFA redfish tour Louisiana division this weekend out of Grand Isle and finished 9th. It was a good finish overall and I can always be happy with a top ten finish. Although due to a miserable boat ride from Venice to Grand Isle then back to Venice then back to Grand Isle I […]
This Morning couldn’t of worked out better. No wind with good cloud cover made it easy to see fish moving and still kept it bearably hot. Seemed like from the time we got out there to the time we got chased in by a storm (7am-11am), It was non stop action. If we weren’t fighting a fish […]
Another great morning with fish moving everywhere. They were not tailing like the weekend but they were floating just under the surface and with the low winds it was easy to spot the little flickers of a tail following a bronze hump in the water. We caught most our fish early and as the water warmed the bite […]
Had another great morning. The Nolans had no problem catching these fish in the shade. Tide – End of falling, beginning of rising Water Temperature – 80-83 Wind – 0 – 10mph Sun – Mostly overcast early with a few spots of sun then scattered thunderstorms forced us in around 11:45 […]
Had a good day today with Jim Wagner and his son Henry. We found a good school of fish early and they were actually eating! After busting a school of fish Henry made quick work of getting on the board. Jim had to step it up with this 9.5lber. (slot fish) Tide – End of falling, […]
