Leak around shifter

Got gear oil leaking from around where the shifter goes in the tranny. Making a mess under the skid plate..... The boot is in bad shape but I didn't think the boot kept the oil in the tranny. Do you think it might be over filled a bit?

there is a rectangular plate that holds the shifter in place. four bolts and a gasket. check both the gasket and tightness on the bolts.
