About Rick Whitney
We grew up on the bayous but as adults we moved away. This is our personal fishing camp which we remodeled in 2018 to make our home away from home. It was reported built in 1900 but you can't tell that now. She's a beaut. Our busy lifestyle doesn't allow us to go often at this time so we share it with others who long for a real "Down the Bayou" experience. Le Sha'Teaux is in the heart of real cajun country, surrounded by real fishing community families. The back porch is our favorite spot. We sit on the porch swing for hours on end. In the winter we catch speckled trout under the light on the dock in historic Bayou Terrebonne. The rest of the year is bass, freshwater cat fish and perch. We are only a two mile boat ride to Humble Canal, which is direct access to amazing saltwater fishing, shrimping and crabbing. It's only seven miles to Bush Canal and another short boat ride to Cocodrie.
Why Rick Whitney chose Montegut
If you want to simply relax, you can do it here. If you want to fish, you can do it here. And it's only an hour from New Orleans.
What makes this House unique
Immediately next door is a new concrete boat launch with ample parking. All guests are welcome to use the launch. Later in the year, our satsuma tree is full of fruit and should be enjoyed by our guests. Fish are readily available to be caught all year long. The only thing we ask is that no one fry inside of our home.

Wonderful Stay and Great Location
This camp is in a great location and was so comfortable and clean. It is so well appointed and full of amenities. We loved the dock and the large shade tree that covers it. The porch swing was so nice for relaxing in the mornings and evenings. We caught all kinds of species off of the dock, reds, trout, perch, catfish, etc. It's only a 2 mile ride to Humble Canal and then good fishing in Wonder Lake or Madison Bay. The owner is great to work with and has thought of everything to make this place a perfect get away. Thanks so much Rick, we will definitely be back!
Clean, clean, clean!
Property is newly remodeled and is pristine. My wife and I had a great fishing trip with my 81-year old Pop. We will be back.
Joel, it was great having you guys as guests. We look forward to having you back soon.
