    About Us


    Bill Lake, a native of Houma, La. grew up fishing the fresh and saltwater marshes of Terrebonne Parish. After 30 years of successful fishing, he has learned to narrow his focus to trophy speckled trout and redfish. Most of his effort & expertise is expended in the inland/coastal waters of Bayou Dularge. The Sister Lake-Lake Mechant area out of Bayou Dularge offer great springtime, fall and winter fishing for specks and reds.

    During the summer months of May-August, one can find Capt. Bill combing the adjacent Louisiana barrier islands and the numerous rigs/platforms scattered throughout the ship-shoal area in search of mule speckled trout! Bull redfish can be caught on a regular basis all summer long near the tidal passes of Last Island. One can also expect to catch BlackDrum, Flounder, White trout, Sheepshead and many other variety's of fish that inhabit the Louisiana coastline. See for yourself why our fertile estuaries are among the best in South Louisiana!

    Good Redfish Bite

    Everyone is catching redfish and we're no exception! The reds are safe this AM as we decided not to run in this weather. Terrebonne parish has been giving up big numbers of reds since mid August and shows no sign of slowing down. The numbers speak volumn as we're over 600 reds during the past 4 weeks. My customers and I have caught,tagged and released 137 reds in just the past 2 weeks. There are so many fish we have yet to recapture a single one of our tagged fish! We had another exceptional weekend catching in excess of 155 reds as all boats limited out each day. Yes, Bayou Dularge is on fire !!! This 'catching trend' will continue right on into October and will get better as the trout fishing comes into full swing in our area. For anyone looking to take advantage of this incredible redfish bite you still have time to get in on it. We have trips available and 8 very experienced captains to put you on the fish. Lodging available for up to 32 people. Just show up and we'll take care of the rest!! Good luck fishing.

    Saturday morning redfish slam! Just another incredible morning to be on the water. The weather was perfect and the fish were eating up big time. I had the pleasure of fishing with Dr's Monroe & John Howell. We got an early start from the Lakehouse Lodge and were catching reds before daylight even broke the horizon. The Howell brothers never seen anything like it! It didn't take long to ice up our 15 fish limit and had fun tagging and releasing a bunch more. All the reds were caught on a rising tide. Capts Gerald,Josh,Ricky,George and Molly all caught their limits too! Over 125 reds caught on this morning alone!! Good luck fishing.

    Dularge Trout Fishing

    Another fun day on the DU yesterday. Our day started out slow but ended with a bang as we left the trout biting with the bad weather moving in on us fast. We left out from the 'Lakehouse' around 7:20 am and headed south with Kevin Ford and camera man John Spain. Only found about 12-15 fish at our first stop. We hopped around back north as the winds pushed us back north to seek protection. Working natural bayous deep in the marsh we found trout scattered and they were caught on LSU chubs and bunker swim baits. Kevin the bobber boy found some good action under a cork catching 15-20 nice trout as he even made me switch over for a short while. We eventually found some fish stacked in a current line off a point and was maul dragging them with the rain moving in from the southwest. We elected to head in with fish biting on almost every cast but it was the right call as it only got worse once back at the Lakehouse. Finished up with a good box of fish with about 15 fish short of our limits. Thanks Kevin and John for another great day on the DU! Should be a good show! Good luck fishing.

    Great Trout Bite!

    A good time on the water Sunday as the trout were eating up big time. Just a beautiful day on the water! My wife Jean joined Dead-eye Chris and I for a great day on the DU! We fished from 11:00 am until 2:30 catching 62 nice trout along with a few reds and flounder. Got back in plenty of time to clean the boat and the fish before the Superbowl kickoff. LSU chubs did the job for us as the fish wanted them over the swim baits. Every day is different and one has to try different lures and colors until you find what they want. Our entire catch came off the reefs as the bluebird day had the fish eating up in the warmer water over the shells. Sure is nice to be able to sleep in, leave late and still catch a bunch of fish. Big thanks to Capts Josh and Brady for their help with Monroe Howell & crew and Kevin Gray and his crew. Its all good on the DU! Good luck fishing.

    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 some big reds. It was an incredible adventure for the california family with a non stop morning catching reds from 10-25 lbs! It was more than they imagined with double and triple hook-ups for 3 straight hours. The reds were in a frenzy & eating up like no tomorrow! The conditions went downhill ater 8:00 am as the east winds were ripping and a dense sea fog moved in over the lake with visibility near zero for hours. We were back at the 'Lakehouse' for 11:30 with everyone wore out from catching so many reds. A trip they will never forget. Good luck fishing.

    Back To The Bulls!

    Another great day of fishing on the DU! Joe Del Signore along with his 2 sons Jack & Val enjoyed Day 2 of their trip to the DU. The guys slept in at the 'Lakehouse' as we wanted to let the storms move through the area before heading out. We left the dock at 10:00 a.m. and returned at 2:00 p.m.
    The big bronzebacks were on the menu once again as this crew just can't get enough! 9 yr old Jack and 11 yr old Val caught fish after fish once we found them stacked up. Double and triple hook ups had the crew doing the 'redfish shuffle' all around the boat. The reds ran from 12lbs all the way up to 20 lbs today. We fished 5 locations before finding the motherload. Once we found them it was every cast with over 30 fish caught in an hour. Joe and his family were a pleasure to fish with and they have lots of pics and some awesome video to take back home to California. Good luck fishing.

    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 they were treated to some awesome boiled crabs and crawfish. These guys are gonna be spoiled this weekend but that's what we do best here on the DU! We'll be looking to bust up some trout for Day 2. Good luck fishing.

    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. We only kept a couple reds during the 2 days of fishing and blackened redfish is on the menu at the 'Lakehouse' tonight. Today was another great day of whacking the bronze beasts in the 20 kt wind. The crew caught fish after fish for about 3 hours and they had all they could stand! A fun crew to fish with as they are really loving south Louisiana! The weather is slowly getting worse each day and we'll see what tomorrow brings! Good luck fishing.
