Inshore Fishing in Leeville / Golden Meadow in Southeast Louisiana
Hello again cyber anglers,

Fishing and catching out of Boudreaux's in Leeville. Water is all blown out from the heavy north winds from Monday and Tuesday and the Reds and Specks are easy pickings. Live cockahoes under a cork on the flats and Carolina in the deeper water in the middle of the canals is how we are catching. Bayou Lafourche, Redfish point one and two, along with D's canal....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Took off for the holidays and also took the Pathfinder to Renovations for its yearly service. We still managed to get out and film more fresh editions of Between the Banks. We filmed two shows out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville. One was shot in the south Texaco field and the other near the old Power lines, which are gone now, at the southern end....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Went back to Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel this past Thrusday. I wanted to check out my new Majic Tilt Trailer since I had Snap Traxx put on the boards at Renovations. I figured launching and driving on would now be a pleasure as predicted by Wade and Holly. They were right! I backed in until the back of the boat barely started to float, then I got out of the....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Last Friday thru yesterday was a record setting week of fishing for my guest and I out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville. November’s sweet New Moon tides combined with record warm temperatures and yielded great catching.

A week ago Friday afternoon we fired back up as the wind had diminished and the gnats were feasting. We needed a show so....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

My guest and I have been fishing out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville the past twenty days as November is one of the busiest months of the year. Specks, Whites, Flounder and Redfish of all sizes have been on despite high winds, high tides, cold front passages, Full Moon, and falling water temps. My guest and I have been working several areas and....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fished out of Boudreauxs Waterfront Motel Wednesday and Thursday. By Wednesday conditions had improved to excellent and even though we had only a foot range in tide, it was warming and the wind had laid to 5-10 mph. My guest arrived and we bolted for open water. The latest I have ever caught Specks at the islands was early November. I also knew that usually....  Read More

Hello again cyber anglers,

LA 1 from the locks to Leeville, is open as flooding created by rains and strong southerly winds eases. Worst hit area was just south of the locks as cars, houses, and business were all damaged. 'I lost everything,' said T-Ran, owner of Blessed Trinity bait and shrimp stand. 'I even have a hole in the roof of my house', he added.

Businesses in....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Did not fish out of Boudreauxs this past week but was there hoping that the wind would stop as 20-25 knot winds blew and continue to blow at this moment. We were hoping to film more editions of Between the Banks, but the wind noise on the mics was too great. Instead, my mate could not take the boredom so he loaded his truck and went fish the boat launch off of....  Read More

Fished out of Boudreauxs Waterfront Motel in Leeville starting on Friday, scouting day, and Saturday and Sunday, Leeville Fishing Rodeo days. Even though the front had come thru and the wind was blowing 20+ mph, the fish still ate and a fabulous time was had by all. I brought out Dave and Sandra, regular and often charter customers who continue to learn how to....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fishing out of Boudreauxs Waterfront Motel in Leeville this past week and catching depended on the wind. The strong east winds forced me and my guests to fish inside waters however the falling water temps are turning on the White Trout, driving in the Spawned out Specks and keeping the Redfish action going. All of this activity is just in time for the Leeville....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fished out of Boudreauxs waterfront Motel in Leeville Tuesday. We got up early to meet my chartered group however both the charter and I agreed that it would be better to cancel and reschedule as the wind was blowing from the east at near 20 mph. We also were fishing a flat tide however with the wind blowing, I figured it would not be an issue since we would....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,
Fished and Filmed out of Boudreauxs Waterfront Motel in Leeville Tuesday, the day after Labor day. After taking the month of August off like we do every year, I would only go down on the weekends to help those warriors that were willing to battle the heat, 90+ degree water temps, and an annoying west wind. So I went to Boudreauxs this past Friday and readied the....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Fished and filmed out of Boudreauxs 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 Boudreauxs 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

Fishing out of Boudreauxs 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 Boudreauxs 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

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

Fishing out of Boudreauxs 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 70s 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 Boudreauxs Waterfront Motel from the Monday after the Sportsmans 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.

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

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 Boudreauxs 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
