Inshore Fishing in Leeville / Golden Meadow in Southeast Louisiana
Fished this past Friday out of Leeville. Weather was perfect and had a falling tide most the morning. Fished my usual spots along the power lines on East side where I found the water looking allot better than on the West. The catfish seemed to be stacked up in there more than normal and feasted pretty well on live minnows. We switched over to soft plastics using Lemon head Matrix Shads, H&H....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Leeville / Golden Meadow in Southeast Louisiana
Fished Wednesday afternoon out of Boudreaux's. Could not get out into the Lake due to a strong south wind and reports at the landing of the water being dirty from the shrimp trollers sent me to the east side of Leeville. I decided to try the power lines and points. Wife used live minnows and I used the Matrix Shad, Lemon Head color. Keeper size Speckle trout were very scarce and the white trout....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Leeville / Golden Meadow in Southeast Louisiana
Having not wetting the boat for the past 4 months due to work & weather I finally got to make a trip.
Fished Leeville yesterday out of Boudreaux\'s. Found the wind coming out of the NE 5 - 10 mph and very little tide movement which made for one of those trips that defines fishing and not catching. Although we did manage to put a nice batch of fish together by the end of the trip.....  Read More

What a great weekend in Leeville fishing with my best friend Mike Sullivan.
Friday - Fished the east side along power lines concentrating on the deep holes and points. The fish were on just about every where we tried giving our attention on catching only trout. The bigger trout were caught on live minnows fishing Carolina rigged. Early morning the trout seemed to be on top so we used a clip....  Read More

  • Work boat in Boudreaux's Canal
Ok... How many motors would you like on your house boat? This was taken in the Boudreaux Canal in Leeville. Its actually part of a work boat crew that is based there. It was really odd to see 8 250hp Yamaha's on the back of something like that. Is it economical? who knows. Just seems like it would be more practical to put a good diesel on it.

  • Early Thursday catch
  • Sunrise at Northwest
  • A wierd catch
Thursday & Friday couldn\'t ask for the weather to be more perfect. Thursday morning we headed out to Lake Raccourci and made the first stop at Northwest Shoal. The topwater bite was on using TopDog Jr. Black/Gold color. We were able to pick up a few nice trout but when the sun peeped up the topwater action shut down. We then ran to Philo Brice fishing the points which started out very....  Read More

Had another fantastic trip out of Leeville with my wife as we made it to Boudreaux's late Tuesday evening. Wednesday morning we got bait at Terry's and headed out to Lake Raccourci. Our first stop we found the specks chasing shrimp and was able to catch some hammers on topwater until the sun popped up then they shut down. We then ran to one of the platforms where we found them on the down....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in South Central Louisiana
Recently I have seen it mentioned in several post about some experiencing the arrogance and rudeness of other boaters ( fishermen). I have always marked it down as some anglers just having lack of experience and not being able to get out and fish as much as most of us do that post on here. I have seen this happen out on the water numerous times. Unexpected things can happen like your anchor....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Leeville / Golden Meadow in Southeast Louisiana
Left City of Central thursday morning with no wind and perfect weather. Of course the way my luck goes when we arrived in Leeville the flags were flapping with about a 12mph west wind. After loading up with ice and minnows at Terry's we made the rough ride to Philo Brice Island. Once day light broke I noticed the water was getting dirty and after about an hour with no bite we decided to make....  Read More

  • Andrew with one of his big Specks
Finally was able to make a quick trip to Leeville. I received several reports from Monday of limits being caught all the way from Lake Raccourci south to East Timbalier. So Tuesday I hooked to the boat and headed to Leeville. I brought alone a good friend of mine Mike and his son Andrew. We loaded up with minnows from Terry's and headed out to a calm Lake Raccourci. We fished Northwest Isl. for....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Louisiana
At the Sportsman Show this year there was a guy there at a booth that repaired vintage outboards. Does anyone have this guy's information? I have a friend that is working on a old 9 1/2hp Evinrude. He needs to locate parts for it. I think its around a 1963 model...The old flat top.
Any info is appreciated.
