Captain Bobs Leeville Report

Hello again Cyber Anglers,

The strong Redfish bite continues out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville. From close in action at Redfish Point 1 (episode 1528), to action at the Bayou Blue dams (episode 1529), we have had no problem getting our daily limit of nice keeper Reds.

Free swimming, Carolina rigged, and under a cork, large Goo Goo cocahoes along with topwater she dogs and popRs, have produced all of our catches. Even the high southeast wind and tide have not slowed the great bite.

Yesterday, even with wind gusting to 25mph, we ducked into the East Access Canal, anchoring close to the protected bank to ease the wind. Again no problem catching our limit of Reds (episode 1530).

I still have not caught a lunker Speck this year but with the rcecord warmth I don’t think it will Rbe much longer as the surface water temp cont inured to climb. It reached 74 degrees yesterday at the surface however mid level was 64 and bottom temp was still a cold 59 degrees.

I have only been able to check outside waters once when the wind laid and I was escaping gnats. Bull Redfish and large sharks was all I caught. I fished East Tim., Devil’s Bay, and Philo.
Strong winds continue this morning with rain.

More details available at, TV venues daily,and the BTB fishing line at 504-458-9451. In the meantime good luck fishing....Capt. Bob
