Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fished and filmed out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville yesterday and was happy to see the big Trout bite continues to increase. Tide had a nice 1.2 foot range and was incoming, aided by a brisk southeast wind, holding up the afternoon outgoing tide. We headed for outside water but when I came to the Deep Bayou Rocks, conditions were perfect. For years....  Read More

Hello again Cyber Anglers,

The Trout bite continues out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville. We continue to work the islands catching most of the lunkers on Carolina rigged cocahoes. When it clouds, topwater is producing big fish also. On breezy days we have been catching from Bayou Rosa south to the helipad in Deep Bayou. More and more hot, smothering, windless days have allowed....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fishing out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville, continued to be excellent for my guests as the Trout bite continues to rage on. Believe it or not, the last two weeks have been rainless until yesterday afternoon when payback arrived. Infant showers have developed early and moved north for the last two weeks and the calm weather has yielded nice big Trout....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

The Speckled Trout bite continued this week out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville. Monday and Friday morning were a little rough with the 10-15 Southeast wind, and a stalling front, but even mother nature could not stop the big Trout as they are now pigging out. Limits are easily obtained as long as you exercise patience.

This week the new moon....  Read More

They have been fishing with me for a handful of years, have their own rig, and have gone from rookies fishing, to successful anglers catching. Last year in October, Sandra took 2nd place Speck at the Leeville Speckled Trout and Redfish Rodeo. When we....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Water high and dirty@ Boudreaux's Waterfront motel in Leeville. Tide continues to be flat but you woulden't think so with all the high water and run off. Southerly winds helping hold it high.

Great time to be on the trailer, cleaned and covered and rest is plentiful. For those die hards that have headed out west to the islands, dodging thunderstorms and....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fishing out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville is getting more, and more enjoyable. The warm spring has continued and so has the big Speck action. Water Temp is still rising and is up to mid 70’s and slowly climbing. Starting Monday we had a sweet range in tide, incoming in the morning and outgoing in the afternoon along with southeast winds 10-15mph.....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fished out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel from the Monday after the Sportsman’s show thru yesterday. The weather could not have been better as the warm days continued to force the water temp up. With the warmer water conditions, come early appearances of small shrimp and large Trout in outside waters, especially near the coast. Here are more details.

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,(including Squid Row and A.C.Man)

Fished out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville Monday thru Wednesday. As anticipated, the weather was so perfect that I fished in short pants. Air temps rose to 81 degrees, wind was light, outside water was slick calm and gulf green. Great conditions for the start of our 2015 fishing season with the exception of feasting....  Read More

Pathfinder is trailered, covered and ready for the yearly trip to Renovations for service. I had celebrated the Holidays with family, two brothers, three sisters, their spouses, their kids, and their kid’s kids. That’s great....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

I could not have planned it better. I took off for two weeks during all of the cold weather before returning to fish out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville last Monday thru Saturday. The Full Moon could not stop the fish or the gnats from feasting. The strength of the wind influenced where we fished. Once the fog lifted enough to run, you could find me....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fished Leeville out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel this week. The catching went with the wind and barometer. Activity at the fish cleaning station on Monday dropped drastically. Like today, the Pathfinder remained on the trailer. Tuesday conditions started to improve as the heavy north to east wind eased as the filling Moon enjoyed the clear night. The....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Been down at Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville and I must say that the Fall bite is continuing. Last week the wind humped so we spent most of our time fishing the South Texaco field, catching Redfish, Specks and Whites. We fished the middle of D’s canal for the Whites and caught the big Specks on the Oyster lined banks along with the Reds. Low tide was....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fishing out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel this past two weeks has been nothing short of wonderful. The fall bite is on and action at the fishing cleaning station is heavy. The White Trout are in all the deep main canals like the East and West Canals along with Bayou Lafourche. Even when the front blew through this past weekend for the Leeville Speckled Trout....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,
Returned back to Leeville this past Wednesday after two weeks vacation. I quickly found two menaces that were still hanging around Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville. A nuisance wind and coastal showers were still making fishing conditions tough. We could not run outside so I worked the usual inside deep holes.

When conditions get rough, deeper water....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

It was a rough Saturday morning out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville. Aside for a couple of hours early this morning, heavy wind and thunderstorms occupied most of the morning fishing time. The afternoon fishing is also going to be rough as thunderstorms are continuing and the sky is dark. Heavy gusts accompany the thunderstorms so if you’re fishing....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Rain and wind prevented us from filming Monday and Tuesday. Yesterday we caught a break in the morning so I ran to the Power Lines on the East Canal. Squid Row fishes that neck of the woods and the last time he was down he showed me a short cut. I returned the favor by helping him clean their 80+ White Trout. He told me that if ever the weather is rough, he can....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,
Action at the fish cleaning station at Boudreaux's in Leeville slowed today as the North wind was 10-18mph early this morning and has not let up. The increased wind along with weekend trawlers have Bay Racourcci and the northern side of Timbalier pretty dirty. Inside fishing continues to increase as the White Trout have moved in.

Back on the water tomorrow....  Read More

It was nice to come back from fishing and find the WI-FI back up at Boudreaux's, hence this report fresh off the water. Morning trip to Castette/Calumet awesome. Pulled up to the west point of Cassetete and found catfish. Saw the Pelicans diving on the western point of Calumet and found shools of Pogys, huge slicks and the area lit up with Specks and Bull....  Read More
