A scouting trip gone well!

Calcasieu Reef restoration documentary

I was asked to take out a biologist and a videographer out to different locations to shoot footage for a documentary.

Fire Up The Grill!

This catch is definitely heading to the grill soon. Grilled Redfish is one of my favorites!


All my customers and everyone on Lake Calcasieu know how much I like Sheepshead. They are so fun to catch and great to eat. In Louisiana there is no size nor any number limit on sheepshead. Most guides on Lake Calcasieu consider sheepshead a trash fish, but not me. During certain times of the year, I actually target sheepshead. I’ve been called the Shephard of Lake Calcasieu because I keep the sheep.
