"The Infamous" Coogan
Ryan is my brother and one of the ringleaders of the Dularge.com crew.
Coogan practices Emergency Medicine in Lafayette, so if you are
traveling through Acadiana, all I can say is drive the speed limit and
make sure your seatbelt is fastened!
John McQueen a/k/a
"Mr. 10%" is a lifelong Dularger and sometime Redfish Tour Semi-Pro.
John puts his pants on one leg at a time, only thing is, once his pants
are on, he catches trout and redfish. Bring your "A-Game" when you step over the gunnel with
The lovely and
infinitely patient Sophia Ryan is my wife and best friend. She loves to
put the hurting on speckled trout after they have been amply located
and patterned, and not earlier than 10:30 am, thank you very much!
Claire Ryan is my ten
year old daughter. She first came to the Camp when she was 2 weeks old!
She cast, set on, and reeled in the above trout herself. Im one
Wes Baird is one of my
oldest childhood friends. We have been fishing together since we were
in first grade. Wes loves to chase specks and redfish when he can get
away from Mandeville, and he often will eat any oysters he snags on
Ryan is my six year old son. He is already on the board with
his first redfish. The lad is good help driving the boat.
Sherman Boughton is the ex-Coroner of East Carroll Parish. Sherman
makes at least one trip to Dularge every year - sometimes we slay the
trout, other times we seek out the big black drum in Grand Pass. Once
the most eligible bachelor in the state, he is happily settled down in
the Bigg Eazy.
Scotty "High Life"
Domingue works with Coog in the ER in Lafayette. Scott has got a
fever and the only cure is Trout, and oh yeah. . . more cowbell.
Dave Towers a/k/a
"Dude" is originally from New Orleans, but I never met him until we
were both at So. Cal. One of my closest friends, Dave lives in
Santa Monica now, but he is always up for a trip down to Dularge.
Dave has come to love the way of the Bayou, and he has developed
some fishing chops on the way.
Billy "the Fishmaster"
Lancaster is one of my dad's oldest frineds. He's a fanatical
fisherman, having honed his chops in the wide open spaces of
Mississippi Sound. Billy is a regular on the Dularge.com
tournament circuit, where he can usually be found sucking down the
crawfish and using camera tricks on his fishing pictures.
"Eazy" . . .That's the
way to describe this character. Although some call him "the
Alien." Ed Baumann is one of Coogan's oldest friends. Eazy
helped us refit the camp after not one but three hurricanes. He's
on the speed dial for spring trips, as boiling crawfish is his passion,
second only to killing redfish.
Steve Beiser has a
love for Dularge that is rarely found. He will drop what he is
doing for a chance to smell salt air and catch trout, reds, and as you
can see, bull drum. If there was a competitive eating circuit for
crawfish, Steve would be a contender, if not the holder of the
A/K/A "Stew Bob" caused a lot of trouble at "Camp Mountain Lake" with
Coogan and me in Tracy City, Tennessee. Stew was getting pretty good at
the Pass Christian trout scene before Katrina. Now, he's ready to
learn Dularge for the next couple years.
Say hello to
H.P.Bunker White! Bunker is another of my dad's old buddies who
has a great passion for fishing. Whatever the program, Bunker is
down with it in spades. Bunker is the proud steward of a 23
Caribbiana "the Yellow Rose." Trust me, when you see it you
will know it.
