Trophy Trout!

One for the books in Seadrift, TX. today. ENE winds 15-20, overcast, thigh deep water at 54 degrees. Throwing green/silver, bone/silver, and chartruese/silver Corky Fatboys.

We had at least 15 trout from 20-25″, 1@26″, 3@27″, and 1@28″. We laughed and shook our heads in disbelief, it has been a long time since I have seen numbers like this in a day. But, I know this weather has helped our chances. Every trout was released to fight another day.

Capt. Nathan Beabout Seadrift Fishing Report

Finding new areas to fish that are holding a good number of trout and reds, with this high water.

We concentrated on areas holding a lot of bait, which were crotch to waist deep grass flats. My guys threw a variety of baits in different brands. Their best baits were red/white, mansfield margarita, and chicken of the c.

I found a few fish on topwaters early then switched to DSL’s blue moon and strawberry wine. Great day with these repeat customers!

Give me a call for availability Oct-Dec. let’s get you down here and in on the action!

Seadrift Wade Fishing Report

Sometimes slow and steady wins the race! Each wade produced a good number of bites, just not always keepers. Picking up a few fish each wade was how our day went.Seadrift fishing

Had a lot of fun spending the day with this new to wading saltwater family, once they learned a few of the tricks they were set. Mid-day was our best bite on 16-19” trout, which were caught on Strawberry Wine, Pumkinseed, and Plum/chart.Seadrift fishing

Give me a call to book October-December, you won’t regret it!

Great day on the water

It started off slow with the calm conditions, then we had to dodge some rain. By late morning till about 1:30 we found the bite. It was a mix of smalls and keepers, mostly ranging from 17-19″.

Working areas of crotch deep grass beds throwing DSL red/white, strawberry wine, and plum did the trick. We were seeing rafts of bait darting through the water. Throwing into these areas and dragging through was how we found our trout.

Managed a few reds tight to the bank on our last wade of the day, throwing topwaters and red/white.

Fall fishing with Capt. Nathan Beabout

If you don’t have a trip booked with us to wade in September or October, pick up your phone today!

Did a little fun fishing today with good friend Chris Cady, he found some very solid fish on topwaters, and I had them thumping DSL soft plastics. Our wades were concentrated over sand/grass from knee deep to crotch deep. Soft plastic colors were chicken of the c and victorious secret super models. The topwaters were bone/silver and Texas chicken.

Everything is falling into place to be a great fall fishery. We have all our tide back, the salinity level is down and water temps are cool from lastcweeks rain. This creates good feeds from both trout and reds, and makes patterns a bit more normal. Not to mention potentially our first cool front of the year next week.

I couldn’t be more excited about the things to come, absolutely the best time of year to be on the water. Don’t miss your chance.

DSL Chicken of the C strikes again!

Good to be back on the water after some much needed rain! With the wind starting low we were able to walk a reef on our fisrt wade, with good numbers of 17-20″ trout.

Once the wind picked up we headed to the sand pockets of the shorelines. There we walked into several trout in the 20+ inch range.

Baits today started off with DSL chicken of the c on the reefs, and blue moon and majic grass on the shorelines.

Plenty of open dates available for this late summer/fall action. Give us a call and let’s go fishin’!

Grinding out the trout bite

The full moon may have got the better of us this time, but it’s always a fun couple of days when these boys come down.

As expected the bite was on from sun up until about 10:30 for 16-20″ trout, then it died both days. But that didn’t slow us down. We tried many different areas and even managed to chase down a few reds.Texas trout

We have a lot of water in our bays, and I’m hoping it sticks around this time. Because of that the fish have started to move on the shorelines. Finding areas with widely scattered grass beds was key, along with areas that had rafts of finger mullet. Over the two days our bait selection stayed pretty much the same in sandy green water.

We threw pumpkinseed, victorious secret, blue moon, frozen smoke, and even chicken of the c before the sun came up.Texas trout Texas trout

Give me a call to book your fishing trip, from wading artificial, sight casting reds, and bull red trips. We have plenty of availability from September-November.

Seadrift fishing report

Strange bite today! All our wades produced a good number of hits, but many fish were lost immediately after the hookset, or halfway in. It didn’t seem to matter if they were dink trout or 18-20” keepers, each of us only had a couple good thumps.

Other than a little frustration from loosing a few solid fish, we stayed busy on each wade. Had a lot of fun trading fishing stories with this father/son team.

With the water around normal levels most of the trout have pulled up over the grass, with a few lingering over the scattered sand pockets.

Our fish were caught on a variety of baits, even a 1/4oz silver spoon. But the best bait colors today were pumpkinseed, victorious secret, and blue moon.

Seadrift Fishing Report

Fun last couple of days. We tried many different areas from shell to shorelines. Each spot produced a good handful of fish, but by mid-day the bite fell off. This is to be expected this time of the year, with winds that die and the water temps rising. Beabout

Today when it went slick we found 4 small pods of reds to keep us busy. It is always fun chasing these golden fish down the bank.

Best bait over the last 2 days has been Victorious Secret super model, and also managed a few on Blue Moon.

Plenty of dates still available for August-October. We are taking bookings for wading artificial, sight casting reds, and Bull red trips at the POC Jetties(late September-November). Don’t wait any longer to book a trip of a lifetime!
