Louisiana springtime is just around the corner and with the warmer weather comes hot fishing action. Let our professional and experienced charter captains hook you up with the fishing adventure like no other.
I don't think anyone saw this coming with the beautiful conditions laid before us today on the water. Slick calm, light wind, sunny skies and mild temperatures had me feeling like it was going to be epic! First stop didn't produce a fish despite emerald green water. Neither did the second or the third! Fishing numerous spots in Lake Mechant devoid of bait had me scratching my head. I decided to take a gamble and run south in hopes of discovering life. Surprisingly the first cast produced a 3 lb trout. The next lost a 3 lb trout. I figured we were on to something! Ok, now the ice is dirty let's get this bite going. Stuck around the area awhile and only put 4 more fish in the boat. Some solid fish though. The rest is history. Ran back up north and jogged from one spot to the next in hopes of putting enough fish in the box to fry. At least that goal was accomplished but with the conditions today it should have been off the chain!!!
Erik and Shannon Mollerberg jumped onboard the big Bluewave today. Our first stop had us slow picking away at some keepers while most were too small. Our second and third stop had nice trout going 15-18 inch's. Crystal clear water at most locations today made it nice. Tiger and Green Hornet Matrix tight-lined and Shrimp Creole Matrix and Chartreuse Reel Dat Lures under a cork did the trick. We fished mostly protected areas trying to stay out of the wind today. Erik and Shannon had a great time reeling in the fish and learned a wealth of knowledge about the area. It was a very enjoyable day with the couple and I look forward to their return, thanks again!
Ben Bouterie and crew with Acclarent came into the Lodge Wednesday night. Chef Shawn P boiled up some crawfish and fried fish for the guys, a good night was had by all. We pulled out the lodge this morning at day break. Our first few stops were slow, then we found what we were looking for. Silver head shakers hitting the K2!!! Tiger and Shrimp Creole Matrix under a cork did the trick. Once the bite slowed, we moved around picking and adding to the box. We went soak a few shrimp and added a little mixture to the box. The guys had a great time and took first place trout and second place red in the little competition they had going on between the three boats. Thanks guys for everything and we look forward to your return.
Big thanks to David's Custom Tackle for the new jig heads. They are working great.
Big thanks to Capt Travis Miller and Capt Rob DuPont for running the other two boats and showing the guys a great time. Great team work once again as that's the 'Real Deal'!!! It's not all about one person/boat catching when fishing with Absolute Charters, it's about all boats and customers catching. Give me a call to get in on the action.
Joey Lupo and crew were back on the big Bluewave today. Our first stop found the trout jumping into the K2 just about every cast under corks. Matrix Shad Tiger, Shrimp Creole and the Chartreuse Reel Dat Shrimp Lures were getting it done. Once the bite tapered off we found several redfish eating up the Matrix also under a cork. We fished several other areas picking away at the fish. We didn't set any records today but with the conditions the guys put a nice mess of fish together. One lonely flounder also made it into the mess of fish. Thanks again guys for another great day on the water.
If your looking for the real deal......fishing, bow fishing, lodging, chef and catering, then give me a call, we have it all!! Chef Shawn P is fixing to start boiling crawfish and frying fish for our big crew at the lodge right now!!
Byron Lemoine was back onboard the Blue Wave with his girlfriend Jennifer and buddy Joey. Not going to sugar coat today. It was flat out tough out there and once the winds started pumping 30mph it got real tough. There were some positives today . The crew started with a bang. With winds starting at around 20mph we hit a protected reef and Jen found her reel screaming with a bull red. Poor girl's hand cramped into a fist by the end of that battle. Totally worth it tho. A few minutes later Byron's drag went screaming and Joey was instantly jealous. We added a few keeper trout and some throwbacks before the bite went dead. Off to a protected cove and within minutes we had a triple hook up with Joey's going the biggest on a spinner bait. I wasn't lying when I said Joey was jealous of the bull reds. Although fishing for trout he was determined to find him a red. Oddly enough after the triple hook up we didn't catch another trout there. We moved around trying to hide from the wind and picking up a few fish. We called it a day around 1 with a good case of wind burn. Thanks Byron for the continued business.
