Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Last week of June, fishing out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront was tougher than normal as action at the fish cleaning station diminished. A combination of high water and strong afternoon wind slowed fishing down despite the great range in tide during New Moon week. On days when we could get outside, I concentrated on the west side of Philo Brice and the underwater,.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fished Friday and Saturday out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville. Both days were extremes. Friday we were greeted with a generally north wind and flat tide so I headed to the northwest point of Philo Brice. Wind was moving the water as the incoming tide was overruled by the wind switching to outgoing tide early. I backed off of the island and anchored.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

I was curious to see if the Full Moon would slow the gorging activities of this year’s Speck spawn. With everything running about 30 days late this year, I wondered if the feed would continue. Generally fishing Full Moon can be tough if you are not fishing at night. I tracked from June 9th thru June 16th since I fished with guests every day. The results were.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fished Monday June 9th out of Boudreaux’s Motel in Leeville and it was nothing short of brutal. After great weather on Thursday and Friday while filming, as the weekend arrived, the wind started to increase from the west and southwest. By Monday water was rough and dirty outside. Even my safe havens like the peninsula from Bayou Rosa to Deep Bayou and Grand.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fished and filmed Thursday and today out of Boudreaux’s in Leeville. Thursday the wind was easing but still blowing from mid-morning on. I escaped the southeast wind by fishing the protected water of Grand Bayou Blue where it meets Raccoourci. The day was mostly cloudy and topwater and Carolina rigged live minnows and finger mullet produced a nice mess of big.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fished Memorial Day out of Boudreaux Waterfront Motel in Leeville. Place was packed for the holiday. Started off at the Deep Bayou rocks and got into the Big Specks until the incoming tide stopped. Mongo and I took a break for lunch while we broke for Philo Brice. The wind was slowly increasing so we worked the protected North shore of the island, waiting for.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fished yesterday out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel and the day was glorious, but pataience was the key. My guest and I started the incoming tide in the Bay Rosa and Deep Bayou area with a slow morning bite and non-aggressive fish. When the breeze subsided along with the chop, I headed west to the Northwest Structures, Fornation, and Philo Brice in anticipation.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

The tide slacked this morning, so I figured it was a good time to reload for the next round of fishing. This past hitch out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville featured beautiful weather with a soothing breeze, just enough to keep both the gnats and most of the sand flies at bay. The Full Moon week produced the normal big range in tide, incoming most of.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fished the last 10 days out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville. This hitch continued to feature the wind and if you did not know how to deal with it, catching was tough. On the calmer days there was plenty action at the fish cleaning station with both Redfish and Specks being caught. The boats that fished outside on these days may not have limited out on.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fished last Thursday thru Sunday and again Wednesday of this week out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville. The recent calm wind days we have spent at Casse-tete, Philo and Bird Islands welcoming the Trout to outside water as the water temp continued to climb into the mid 70’s. The big Specks near the coast are just beginning to move in and feed and there is.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

The transition period continued last week as fishing out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel had it’s moments, good and bad. Once the wind eased enough on Wednesday I headed out to 4-piles and Casse-tete and stopped at Deep Bayou on the way back. Thursday I did the same route but in reverse order and caught Trout and Bull Redfish again. Most of the Specks were.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fishing and catching conditions out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville are improving as the surface water temp rises. Activity at the fish cleaning station is also on the increase. I headed back down after the Sportsman’s Show and did not return until Sunday afternoon. Stayed busy with checking on the progress of the Leeville Boat Launch, ordering a new.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Louisiana Sportsman’s Show was outstanding this past late week and weekend. Had to be a record crowd and they were all treated to good food, fun, fair and products wither you fish or hunt. Well done Tony Taylor and crew. I worked the Renovations high tech display in the boat building. They had smart TVs at the front of all 4 of the Pathfinder models including.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Catching this past hitch was easy if you played the weather right. If the wind was not blowing and the gnats feasting, we again escaped to the Bay Marchand rigs just south of the barges off of Fourchon in the 1 block. When the wind was blowing enough to keep the gnats off, we fished the South Texaco Field just south of the Leeville Bridge. Live finger Mullet.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fished Friday out of Boudreaux’s in Leeville with an old Bass fishing buddy. He purchased a new 2600HPS Pathfinder and wanted to do some running and fishing. He lives in Fla. and was in La. for Mardi Gras and had his new boat in tow. We had a light wind from the Southeast so we escaped the Gnats by running to Belle Pass. When we hit the Gulf surface water temp.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

We are still catching Redfish in the South Texaco Field out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville. The last two weeks was a mix bag of weather, especially with the most recent warm up, so I wondered if I should give up on the Redfish and go looking for Specks. The surface water temp at the beginning of this past hitch was mid to upper 40’s and on the coast.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

I was at my station at Boudreaux’s Friday cleaning up when I spotted Leeville regulars Mike and Kathy docking up. His 28 foot Gravois had two other couples in it and as he was tying up, I asked how they had done and they told me they had scratched. Mike and Kathy are from Prairieville and have always shared info with me. “Man you have to put me on some Reds,” he.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fished Tuesday out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville and the Redfish were on again. Surface water temp started at 49.2 degrees and climbed to 58.5 degrees. Tide also cooperated as the low tide did not bottom out till 1130am, forcing the fish out of the ponds and into the deeper water in the canals. Water movement and nervous water was all over the.... Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

We fished out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel last Friday. When we got up Friday morning the tide was bottoming out and the second board on the dock bulkhead was showing. The northeast wind was still blowing hard enough to keep low water conditions despite the good tide range and a projected incoming afternoon tide. It was a sure fire Redfish day.

After.... Read More
