Captain Bob Leeville Report

Hello again Cyber Anglers,

Fished out of Boudreauxs Waterfront Motel in Leeville this past weekend and shot Episode 1542 working Deep Bayou pipeline dam and the Deep Bayou rocks. We waited and waded as the high tide combined with east to southeast winds, continuing the minor flooding and high water that has plagued Leeville in recent weeks. Fortunately high tide was around midnight so we could launch at daybreak and get to the fish early and fish the falling tide before the strong winds picked up.

Conditions were perfect for the above mentioned spots. Gulf green, bait filled, nervous water was holding big Specks, all caught on a 1/8oz. Carolina rigged storm minnows. Storm minnows arrive when high water conditions are prevalent during hurricane season. I picked up the Stormys at Gail’s. Largest Speck was pushing 6 lbs. on the boga grip. All of the bigger females were spawned out.

This time of year I like to work transition areas like Deep Bayou, Bayou Rosa, the mouth of Bayou Blue at Little Lake, and Grand Bayou Blue. Fortunately we shot the show and had to go no further than Deep Bayou.

Find more details in episode 1542 on YouTube now and on TV venues daily starting this weekend. Between the Banks fishing line at 504-458-9451 is also an option if you need more help catching. In the meantime good luck fishing.....Capt. Bob

Ps. Leeville Fishing Pier is on big time, Whites, Specks,and Reds included. October and November are my favorite months as catching is easier since the fish are close and gorging in advance of winter.

Re: Captain Bob Leeville Report
Thanks for always posting informative reports Capt. Bob. I am looking to explore this area this fall more. I googled Deep Bayou and see where it is on map. I see several areas of rocks though and was wondering if you could provide info on the rocks you described in your report. I guess my biggest question is there are two sets of rocks in a canal that are pretty close together. This canal you can enter from Bayou Lafourche pretty close to Bobby Lynn's, and if you are looking at it on a map it looks like that canal would end into deep bayou. So I am assuming this is deep bayou pipeline? I notice two sets of rocks in there. Is that open to public fishing?

But then I also notice a set of rocks, or maybe that's the dam you were referring to, a little to the west of the deep bayou pipeline. They kind of block off the little section of pipeline between Deep Bayou and Bayou Blue. Just wondering thank you for any info you can provide. Tight Lines
