Hello again Cyber Anglers, The next episode of Between the Banks deals with the challenges most anglers are facing right now. Tips and helpful information on dealing with weather and pesky Sharks are inside this episode along with references to past episodes filmed two years ago. My guests battled the heat and Sharks successfully and caught some big Specks. Episode 1557 will start airing on the television venues this weekend daily and is already up on my YouTube channel and betweenthebanks.com. Thanks for all the prayers and confidence building messages since my last post. I have spent the last two months getting cleared by my doctors and will start chemo and radiation treatments this coming Monday and should be done in time for the Fall inside bite in Leeville. I’ll keep shooting shows from home every three weeks, referencing past episodes on my YouTube channel and will continue to work the BTB fishing line at 504.458.9451 if additional help is needed. In the meantime good luck fishing... Bob

Hello again Cyber Anglers, Shot episode 1556 yesterday and it’s all about Tide and Nervous Water. Think of it as the first class of Fishing 101. It even has homework if you please and a test that will follow when I shoot 1557. The episode will start this weekend on the television venues and is already up on my YouTube channel. I still have to post it on betweenthebanks.com and still have June and July email to do then I will be caught up. The BTB fishing line is also available for additional help at 504.458.9451. Thanks for the good wishes and prayers and in the meantime good luck fishing... Bob

Hello again Cyber Anglers, All the businesses in Leeville are back up and running after taking as much as 6 feet of water from Barry. The big range in tide and the timing of high tide and storm surge combined to bring the high water. The “Twins” from Boudreauxs stopped by to see me at my home in Raceland yesterday and gave me the news as I have not been in Leeville since filming episode 1555a June New Moon. Three years ago I had a quiet battle with cancer. I was blessed as the cancer was able to be surgically removed. Recently a swollen lymph node revealed it was back provoking tests, minor surgery and scans in preparation for chemo and radiation. I only share this information on this public forum to explain my absence in Leeville, my lack of production of new episodes of Between the Banks television show, posts on this forum, betweenthebanks.com and YouTube. I beat this disease before and intend to do it again and ask for no pity but only for prayers. I will continue to answer the Between the Banks fishing line at 504.458.9451 if you need help fishing Lafourche or Leeville. There are also over 100 of the most recent episodes on YouTube so you can still get all the help you need while I am 10-7. Next week I have a small break before the treatments and will try to shoot an episode on tide so stay tuned and in the meantime good luck fishing....Bob

Hello again Cyber Anglers, Fished out of Boudreauxs’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville during New Moon in June and filmed Episode 1555a of Between the Banks. It was a typical hot summer day, good incoming tide with light, building southeast wind. My guests and I darted out at daybreak, with an anticipated bite from 830-1030a, we headed for intermediate waters, respecting the forecasted wind. We pulled up at Deep Bayou and again found moving, nervous, bait filled, Gulf Green water. No need to go further so I anchored on the inside of the L shaped rocks. So far this Trout season, I rarely have gone any where else and once again this location produced. I watched boats catch at the helipad and the red camp also. Episode 1555a is up on my YouTube channel and should be up on betweenthebanks.com today. Television venues should start airing daily on Saturday. More details on exercising patience for success are in this episode. If you are fishing Lafourche Parish and need additional help, call the BTB Fishing Line at 504.458.9451. In the meantime good luck fishing.....Captain Bob PS Thank you for the prayers, regards, and good wishes. The surgery was successful. Just waiting on Pathology. Hopefully will be back on normal TV production schedule soon.

Hello again Cyber Anglers, Fished out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville Thursday and was met with a filling Full Moon and a building east southeast wind. As I headed across Little Lake to Deep Bayou, I could see choppy conditions in outside, open water. The water at the Deep Bayou rocks was Gulf green, bait filled and nervous. I could not believe there were no boats there. I crept in and anchored on the inside of the rocks so I could fish with the wind at my back, easily casting into the pipeline trench where I had marked fish. It was on! All of my fish came on Carolina rigged, large cocahoes and finger Mullet. As the wind increased boats started returning from the choppy outside waters and noticed my position and decided to join in on the catching. The Helipad, the camp pilings, and the mouth of Grand Bayou Blue all produced for Anglers who stopped in the Deep Bayou area. The bite ended at noon just as the big Sharks moved in. I headed in as the wind was building. All of the action was filmed and can be found on episode 1554 of Between the Banks, already up on my YouTube channel (search Bob Gourgues), on betweenthebanks.com, and starts daily on television venues this weekend. The Specks are gorging in advance of Spawning and it is on and will continue thru Summer. Come down and enjoy this wonderful time of year. Additional help available on the BTB fishing line at 504.458.9451. In the meantime good luck fishing...Bob

Hello again Cyber Anglers, Fished out of Boudreauxs in Leeville this past Sunday. Had a great Speck trip at Philo as the weather was perfect. Tide was switching to come in early and a light northeast wind yielded calm seas. We took our time, enjoying the cool morning ride out. The Deep Bayou rocks had traffic so her sirens could not lure me in. As I approached Philo the north side and cut were packed so I headed to the east cove and drifted to the southeast point were the water was gulf green with slicks everywhere. Finger mullet and shrimp were working the nervous water along with the nice hungry Specks. Carolina rigged nice cocahoes from Gails did the deed on every Speck. If you would like to see exactly how I was fishing along with tips on how to be successful when your fishing the islands and structures, check out episode 1553 of Between the Banks. We shot it Sunday and it’s already up on betweenthebanks.com and my YouTube channel and starts daily at 6am &130pm on LCN TV network along with the cable systems this weekend.

Hello again Cyber Anglers, Fished out of Boudreauxs Waterfront Motel in Leeville this past Wednesday as conditions were perfect. Incoming tide, Gulf green water, bait everywhere, light northwest wind and 72 degree surface water temperature spelled success. I came out of the Southwest Canal and turned southwest to Deep Bayou. The water conditions were perfect but a boat was already working the rocks so I hit the camp and picked up a Catfish. The boat at the rocks was impatiently ridding his trolling motor liKe a jockey and by 8am left. I quickly moved in and a half hour later started to hammer the big Specks, largest pushing 5 pounds. If you would like to see what happened and get the usual details, check out episode 1552 of Between the Banks on LCN Television Network at 6am&1pm daily, Vision, Eatel, Charter & Cox cable systems daily, and YouTube along with betweenthebanks.com. Everybody gets Between the Banks! Big Trout season is on in the transition areas and outside waters. Come get some of this great fun. If you need help just check out BTB or call the BTB fishing line at 504.458.9451. I will be happy to help. In the meantime good luck fishing and catching.....Bob

Hello again Cyber Anglers, Fished out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville this past Friday. A fishing buddy of mine, his wife and daughter arrived Thursday so we compared notes and developed a plan. I told him I was going to escape the Gnats and hit one of the transaction areas in search of Specks. Water temp was in the mid 60’s and I wanted to check Deep Bayou since a brisk east wind was blowing early. He wanted to hit the islands first so we split up. I cautioned that we were fishing on a full moon with flat tide. When I got to the Deep Bayou Rocks the monster Bull Redfish were on. First cast with my Trout rod, rigged with a Carolina large Cocahoe minnow, produced a big hit and the battle was on. While I fought the monster, another boat pulled up but gave me plenty room and respected the hook up. He started fishing and also hooked up to a smaller bull. They then started catching nice Specks while I continued to battle the big Bull. By the time I boated and released the 40+ pound Bull, they had caught a hand full of nice Specks. I checked with my buddy fishing the Islands and he revealed they had gotten into the Specks early but most were small males . His biggest was17” with 50% throwbacks. He and his girls ended up with 40, all caught on DOA shrimp or live Shrimp under a cork. He explained he anchored and waited for the bite as most boats were running around. He returned Saturday and picked up 17. Warmer water was closer to the coast. Too much traffic fo me to fish Saturday. We filmed the Friday action at Deep Bayou and will start airing it daily on the TV venues this Saturday. Episode 1551 is already up on betweenthebanks.com and my YouTube channel. As always if your fishing Lafourche and need help or additional information or details, feel free to call me on the BTB fishing line at 504.458.9451. I will be happy to help. In the meantime good luck fishing.....Bob

Hello again Cyber Anglers, Fished out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel this past Saturday and was met with fog, Gnats and a missing cameraman. By the time I called in back up the fog had lifted enough to head out and escape feasting pests. I headed to Deep Bayou, with filming a Bull Redfish show in mind but wanted also to check for Specks at the rocks and helipad. Bait was everywhere, water was gulf green, tide was pouring in but all I could muster was a monster Gaftop. The Cut Thru Canal was next and the Bulls were waiting along with a few Catfish. I went 0 for 2 on the Bulls but my strike catch ratio was 100% on the Cats. If you would like to see more details and tips on fishing Bulls, Episode 1550 is up on betweenthebanks.com, YouTube and starts daily on the TV venues this Saturday. If you need help or additional information on fishing Lafourche or Leeville, call the BTB fishing line at 504.458.9451, I will be happy to help. In the meantime good luck fishing....Bob

Hello again Cyber Anglers,

Episode 1549, our latest filming trip out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville, was shot this past Saturday and was a trip from Hell.

The calm morning was infested with feeding Gnats and Catfish. Then the South wind started to hump and the fog disappeared but the Catfish continued to feast. When I sought clean protected water, the Gnats, Catfish, and a lonely Oyster fish decided to eat. I fished hard and all day.

If you would like to see for yourself episode 1549 is up on betweenthebanks.com, my YouTube channel, and starts daily on the TV venues this Saturday.

Water temp continues to rise. Hopefully the big Specks will start soon. In the meantime good luck fishing...Bob

Ps. New tackle store open on 3235 before Wal Mart. Details on the episode 1549.

February 20 at 4:25pm

Hello again Cyber Anglers,

Finally got out and escaped the fog Wednesday and hit the Redfish oin the East side of the South Texaco field in Leeville. H&H spinners with Colorado blade carrying a 1/4 oz. white spade long shank w/ tuxedo queen cocahoe caught all the Reds. Water was warming but dirty. Reds reaction to the vibrations was obvious.

Front threw , really blowing. In the meantime good luck fishing ....Bob

February 08 at 10:23am

Hello again Cyber Anglers,

Fog bound in Leeville at Bourdreaux’s as filming is on hold. It’s been a good weekend so far as activity at the fish cleaning has warmed up like the water temperature and New Moon approaches. I’m ready to splash.

Kayak Tournament at the Leeville Boat/Kayak Launch and Fishing Pier, stimulated business in a normal slow season. Merchants welcomed and appreciated the yakers being in town.

Fog seems to be lifting. Going fishing. In the meantime good luck fishing...

February 03 at 10:49am

Hello again Cyber Anglers,

The next time you come to Leeville you will be surprised. Here is proof.

It’s warming up!
Boudreaux’s has TV!
The Specks are going to bite!
Leeville Seafood restaurant has a new floor!
New Moon week!
Gail’s is open seven days a week!
Great tide swing!
Fishing Pier is concrete acceptable!
Pappy’s bar is gone!

The merchants in Leeville are ready for the fishing season as renovations and preparations everywhere are obvious especially at TYDS, Terry's, Ba ta bing, Marsh Masters, and yes even Boudreauxs.

Would you believe the old Pappy’s Bar has been completely changed into nice new charter business! It’s all cleaned up!

Fishing has been brutal for us lately. I fished during the recent cold and did not get a bite on the water and the pier. Water temp fall has not been gradual making fishing tough with the exceptions of Sulfur mine CatFish Lake and Barges on the coast. All the places where the water temp has fallen slowly.

If you would like to see the obvious for your self check episode 1548 of Between the Banks which airs on our TV venues daily, betweenthebanks.com and is also up on YouTube. Last minute help on the BTB fishing line at 504.458.9451. In the meantime good luck fishing....

Hello again Cyber Anglers,

Fished out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville this past Sunday and Monday and got into the Redfish and Gnats.

Sunday greeted us with a light, decreasing, northeast wind. Water was extremely low after the frontal passage and following 30 knot Northerly winds blew all the water out. I carefully idled out and entered the SouthTexaco field. Mud flats and oyster beds were exposed everywhere and I had a hard time getting my 24 foot Pathfinder into D’s Canal but it was worth the effort.

D’s pond was almost dry and all of the Reds were stacked up on the edge of the pond near the canal. You could see Reds waking and tailing and blocking on bait everywhere. I anchored up in the same spot where we had filmed the last episode of Between the Banks(1546) and quickly caught a limit of Reds and filmed episode 1547. All of our catch with the exception of one Red were caught on free swimming, large cocahoes over the oyster beds.

Monday was windless so the Gnats were horrible so I headed for open water in an effort to escape the aggravation. I ended up at Philo and again found Reds on both the north and south points again feasting on free swimming large cocahoes.

Episode 1547 is already up on my YouTube channel and will start on the television venues this weekend. It should also be up on betweenthebanks.com shortly. In the meantime good luck fishing...Bob

Wind humping again today and water is low. Should be no problem catching Reds. Need help fishing Lafourche or Leeville, check out Between the Banks for details. Last minute help on the BTB fishing line at 504.458.9451.

January 09 at 7:04pm

Hello again Cyber Anglers,

Fished out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville and got into the Reds, Specks and Flounder in the South Texaco field.

If you have watched Between the Banks through the years you know how much I love to fish there because of several reasons. First, I have never have been run off there in 41 years and no one will ever run you off. Second, many oyster bottoms. Third, many canals and ponds. Fourth, many fish.

From my anchored position in D’s Canal, the first and only spot I fished, I caught all the fish. Most came on free swimming large Goo’s cocahoes on a weightless shock leader with a #4 black kahle hook. H&H spinner, Boone Straight Jacket in-line spinner and when it clouded, She Dog, also produced. Fishing was on.

If you would like to see for yourself and learn what details you need to know to duplicate my success, just watch the latest episode of Between the Banks (#1546) on our TV venues daily, streaming on betweenthebanks.com, or latest and past episodes on my YouTube channel. If your fishing Lafourche and need last minute help call the BTB fishing line at 504.458.9451.

In the meantime good luck fishing and have a wonderful Christmas and a safe New year from my family to yours....Bob

December 19, 2018 at 12:18pm

Hello again Cyber Anglers,

Our last fishing trip out of Boudreaux’s waterfront motel in Leeville was right before this past cold front came through. Winds were humping from the south so I headed to Bayou Lafourche but was greeted by hardheads. Moved over to the East Access Canal.

Caught nice Specks and Whites on Carolina rigged, large Goo Goo Cocahoes. We worked the deep, oyster lined middle of the canal before the first cut. Keeping a fresh live Cocahoe on the hook insured a hit as I put a nice catch together.

More details are available on the latest episode of Between the Banks (ep. 1544). It will start on our TV venues this week and is already upon my YouTube channel. Tomorrow we will shoot another episode and feature how to catch on Full Moon and slack tide. Stay tuned and if you need help just dial the BTB fishing line at 504-458-9451.

Leeville fishing Pier is on big time. DOA shrimp and twin rigs have worked best for us. Nice Specks and Whites caught again last night. In the meantime good luck fishing...Bob

November 18, 2018 at 1:44pm

Hello again Cyber Anglers,

Fishing out of Boudreauxs Waterfront Motel in Leeville has been a battle with the weather as high water in advance of cold fronts, up and down air and water temps, and now fog, have all limited time on the water. The good news is the fishing bite has not been affected as Trout continue to transition and feed.

After clobbering the big Specks last episode (1542) at Deep Bayou, I returned, looking for another lunker. This time I was greeted by Bull Reds and transitioning big Specks. Falling morning tide was washing around the rocks and the current was holding bait and water was gulf green. These conditions spelled success especially since the weather had settled, giving me access to the edge of open water. Bayou Rosa and the mouth of Bayou Blue at Little Lake also produced nice catches for fellow Anglers.

Carolina rigged large cocahoes from Goos worked best for me. Cocahoe tipped DOA shrimp under a comel weighted, rattling cork also produced a nice mess of large white trout and a pair of Flounder.

More details can be found on Episode 1543 on our TV venues daily and on my YouTube channel, search Bob Gourgues. Personal help is also available on the BTB fishing line at 504-458-9451. In the meantime good luck fishing....Capt. Bob

PS. The fishing pier at the Leeville Public Kayak/Boat Launch Fishing Pier Facility is on big time for Whites, Reds, and Specks. The bigger Trout are located on the edge of the lights and about 5 seconds down. DOA shrimp and white 1/4oz. Shad rigs have worked best for me. Check out Episodes 1520 & 1521 on YouTube for tips on successful Leeville pier fishing.

November 07, 2018 at 7:19am

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.

October 16, 2018 at 12:06pm

Hello again Cyber Anglers,

This episode of Between the Banks, I offer tips on how to catch big Specks in the late summer heat of the day.

I had just finished filming the a top water show in the blazing sun, midday, at the sandbars on the the northeast point of Philo Bruce Island, (episode 1540). The main sandbar has three underwater fingers and holes between each finger, created by waves and currents. I had the Pathfinder anchored on the main bar in 1 1/2 feet of water, close to the island, casting into holes. The deeper, cooler water was holding nice Specks. The usual Carolina rigged cocahoes did the trick.

More information and tips can be found on episode 1541 of Between the Banks television show which is already up on YouTube and starts on the TV venues this weekend. If you need additional information or help you can always call me on the BTB fishing line at 504.458.9451. In the meantime good luck fishing...Captain Bob

September 26, 2018 at 1:48pm

Hello again Cyber Anglers,

Trout bite is still on at the Islands. The 86 degree water temp is still holding a few Sharks and Catfish especially when the tide slacks. If you exercise patience and wait on the tide to move, catching is on. Because the tide always moves during New Moon, I plan filming then and this past New Moon proved its worth again.

It was the hot, middle of the day, no tide or wind blown current at Philo. I had my boat umbrella deployed, loving the shade as other restless Anglers were running around. I stared trolling 1 oz. Black and chrome rattle traps just to get a breeze going. I found the Bull Reds in the East cove and anchored. Blue and chrome she dog prevoked massive hits but it was too hot to battle the brutes and the the boats that were working the northeast point sand bars had left.

I anchored there and positioned the Pathfinder so I could cast to the three fingers of the bars. My cameraman and I ate lunch, patiently waiting for the falling tide to start. When it gained speed, the undesirables backed off and the Trout started to feed, attacking top water, even in the hot blazing sun! Tide works wonders in warm Summer water. Moving water is also usually cooler.

This whole experience was filmed and can be found in Episode 1540 of Between the Banks. It is up on my YouTube channel and will start airing on the TV venues daily Saturday.

I still have not gone further than Philo this year to catch big Trout. Gulf green, bait filled, nervous, moving water and irregular features like points and sand bars are reasons why. I must add New Moon.

Need help fishing Leeville or Lafourche, check out BTB for details and info or the fishing line at 504.458.9451. In the meantime good luck fishing... Cpt Bob

A fine example of the 'Leeville Bulies' that I referred to in my last post. The least they could have done was spell my name right. I can't wait to air the Hobie Kayak World Championship which I am editing as I write this post. I will expose them and their associates along with the bully non profit named in Leeville's sake. I hate bullies and refuse to let them bully me or the anglers that come to Leeville to fish. They have pissed me off and stepped across the line. Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Officers are here now dealing with one of them. More details (video and stills} to come including the illegal sale of Oysters that they are involved in. Be sure to stay tuned to BTB and this site......Capt. Bob
PS If you think the pic is something, go to the Lafourche Gazette, Dec 14th, Letters to the Editor, and read Councilman Lowrainne's letter. They break the law at will. For a closer look, find him on the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office site under convicted sex offenders. Talbot Serigny. I see him hanging out at Terry's (Serigny} bait shop of all places. You connect the dots.

Steve Lessard, a Gonzales resident, held on to win the Hobie World Kayak Championship 6, held at the Leeville Public Boat Launch in Leeville. This is his second Hobie World Kayak Championship having won in year four. Lessard held of second place Australian Richard Somerton to win the World Championship in extreme tough weather and fishing conditions.

'It was brutal fishing and I am exhausted,' Lessard told me as he sat on the stage wolfing down a sandwich. 'This was a tough field of contestants and if the weather was perfect, it would have been anyone's win,' he said at the awards ceremony held at Moran's Fourchon Marina last night.

Another big winner was Lafourche Parish. Merchants in both Leeville and Fourchon, enjoyed ringing cash registers, and playing host to contestants and folks from all over the world. District 9 and longtime parish Councilman Daniel Lowriane said, 'Our facilities like the Leeville Boat Launch, will continue to bring groups to our parish. Sport fishermen are key economic drivers in the parish, especially when the oilfield is down.'

Special thanks to all the Lafourche Parish officials and merchants who supported this event. The fishing, the food, and the warm Cajun Hospitality went a long way in demonstrating to Kayak groups and anglers that they are welcome to come and use our state of the art facilities. I am sure that once the Championship airs on local and national networks, even more will come. Thanks again Hobie and hopefully we will see you again in four years when the Championship returns to the USA.....In the meantime good luck fishing...Capt. Bob

PS To the couple of BULLIES and the Bully NON-PROFIT named in Leeville's sake and headed by a non-resident, cry baby camp owner, your true colors are showing in the East Canal and soon on Between the Banks!

Team USA dominated the top ten after day one of the Hobie World Kayak Championship at the Leevillle boat launch. Contestants braved tough conditions but still 42 out of 50 made it to the computerized high tech weigh station, Day two the wind increased and conditions got tougher even though the sun appeared. The top ten reflected the world flavor of the championship, as two Chinese anglers and two Australians joined four USA anglers.to top the field. Gonzales resident and past champion Steve Lessard, is the top USA angler, moving from third to first place. It's cold and the wind is still blowing but decreasing from 30 to 20mph. We will see what happens.The champion is crowned at Moran's tonight. Final weigh-in at the Leeville Public Boat Launch will be at 2:30 pm. Nice crowd has been in Leeville and the merchants are happy and appreciative. They joined with the Lafourche Parish government agencies to welcome Hobie and demonstrate the benefits of having a facility like the Leeville Boat Launch. Soon the Fishing Pier and Pavilion will be joining the kayak launch in continuing to help stimulate the Leeville Economy. Will post final results tonight.Continuing to film the historic event and will air hopefully after this weeks show. CBS Sports and Fox Sports are also filming and will air in Feb or March, In the meantime, Good Luck fishing Capt. Bob

The public launch will be accessible to regular launching. There is heavier traffic and parking there yesterday and today when we were there filming. All of the kayak traffic, stage, contestant kayaks, wash down trailer, etc., are staged in the kayak launch area on the eastern side of the launch. So far both launching ramps have been open and there are no congestion issues. Yesterday we were on the water filming with Lafourche Parish District 9 Councilman Daniel Lorrraine and Parish Tourism Director Timothy Bush. The weather warmed and the wind decreased but was still brisk from the North East and East. There were several contestants taking advantage on the second and last day of scouting. Birds are diving, loons, porpoises are everywhere close to the launch. My guest caught nice Trout at the entrance to the South Texaco field and in D's canal. Some of the anglers must be watching BTB as two groups passed our anchored filming location and were working the same area. Water temp started at 59 degrees and climbed to 62 when the sun peered through the scattered clouds. We Carolina rigged goo's big cocahoes, casted into the warmer, deeper water of the canal and caught.

I should note that neighbors next to me here a Boudreaux's, ran all the way up Bayou Blue and fished Catfish Lake and caught 40 specks but had to cull through a few smaller ones. All of the launches from Bason's to Leeville are busy but the traffic is on the decrease because of the weather, I put the pathfinder on the trailer last night when we returned from filming. Wind here at my station at Boudreaux's is blowing NE at 27 with gust to 39 and barometer is at 30.30 and climbing and air temp is 52 and also falling. Day one of competition will be tough. Anglers combine there weight in Specks, Reds and Flounder and photo/release their catch, You don't bring your fish to the scale, instead you hand the weighmaster your video card from your go-pro,

We will continue to film the event, post updates and air the footage after the Bayou Lafourche episode(1497). In the meantime good luck fishing....Capt. Bob

Captain's Meeting held last night at Moran's Tiki Hut at Port Fourchon Marina. Contestants from all over the world feasted on Craw Fish Pie, Jambalaya, Coconut Shrimp just to name a few food. They were also treated to speakers like past BASSMasters Classic Champion Mike Ickanilie, Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser, Lafourche Parish President Jimmy Cantrelle and Lafourche Parish Tourism Director Timothy Bush and plenty of Cajun Hospitality.

Contestants were grouped with local Captain's and area anglers for assistance in getting familiar with area waters. First day of practice was held today. All launching and weigh-in activities along with Hobie displays and gear can only be seen at the Leeville Boat Launch. If you want to check out these custom Kayaks and contestants, don't pay the toll and go to Fourchon. Every thing you want to see is at the Leeville Public Boat Launch Kayak section.

More scouting tomorrow. Great sight to see. Thank You Lafourche Parish Tourism for hosting the Captain's Meeting. A lot of happy, hungry, out of country faces. More post daily....good luck fishing....Capt. Bob

I rarely comment but I could not help it. Bitch,bitch,bitch. When do we fish? Have fished Leeville since the age of 3 with my dad. We never got a ticket on LA 1 or the 4 lane when I pass thru to go to work. Not rocket science, break the law and get a ticket, especially in the park, especially in Golden Meadow. How about we 'give a break' to everyone who breaks the law. And let's punish the merchants in Golden Meadow also? Negative Ghostrider!

The best and quickest way to get me for last minute help is BTB fishing line at 504.458.9451. If you would like to see where I have been catching down to GPS #s go to betweenthebanks.com. Shows are current or just find me at Boudreaux's when I come in from fishing. Sorry we missed.

Fished Saturday while we took Wilson's LSU Blasier Bay out to check it out after 9 months sitting on the trailer after his son's death. While showing Wilson how to operate his HDS-7 Lowrance, Terry hooked up to another nice Redfish. Back on the water when the wind lays. Dirty water outside due to the strong winds.
