Seadrift Fishing Report

After using my “phone a friend life line” asking a couple questions about water clarity in other parts of the bay. I was able to put these boys on a bite of solid 18-21” trout.

Throwing DSL’s Super Natural, on POC custom rods on the edges of reefs is how we found our fish. Lucky for us the wind stayed down just long enough.

Give us a call or shoot us a text for August-October availability.

Capt. Nathan’s Seadrift Report

Hit a bite early on the backside of the minor feed walking thigh to waist deep sandbars. Our best baits on this wade were DSL’s white ice and chicken of the c in sandy water.

Give us a shout for August-October availability. Good fishing coming in the next few months. Whether you want to wade or sight cast, you won’t be disappointed.

Seadrift Sight Casting

Such a fun day with repeat clients. Had a ball chasing schools of redfish with silver spoons, DSL’s strawberry wine super models, and POC custom rods.

This time of year into September with the lower wind days, you will be amazed at what our bays can hold.

Seadrift Redfish Report

Had a fun morning with a good buddy, Chris. We went playing lolking for some reds for upcoming trips. All our fish were released to fight another day.

Looks like the wind may finally blow itself out by the weekend, with next week returning to a normal pattern. If you would like to sight cast and chase some redfish around give me a call!

Seadrift Report

Fun day two days throwing DSL’s strawberry wine, blue moon, and kicken chicken.

Had some topwater action early during the major feed, then they wanted it bounced off the bottom. Fish were holding in thigh to crotch deep sand pockets hitting small rafts of finger mullet.

Give us a shout for July/August availability.

Capt. Beabout Trout and Redfish

A fun 2 days with these repeat clients. Always good to get the youngsters on the water.

Day 1 we waded throwing topwaters,  DSL kickin chicken, and victorious secret for any early morning trout bite in knee to thigh deep water.

Day 2 we made a couple wades and came up with a few trout, spooked a smalll school of reds, and lost a 6-7# trout. We were all a little frustrated, so we decided with the calming winds to go sight cast some reds and let these boys feel some big pulls. Reds and drum wanted the candy apple. It was a very eventful afternoon!

Give us a call for June-August availability.

Wade gets it done!

Had a blast fishing with this young man today. 12 year old Wade was eager to learn, and never quit.

We took advantage of the light east winds today and spent most of our time in the middle of SA bay. Working the tops of reefs throwing DSL blue moon and kickin chicken were the ticket. Did manage to catch a couple bruiser reds at first light on ‘ol blue/chrome with my POC custom baitcaster.

Folks we still have openings for wade fishing or sight casting in June/July. Give us a shout fir trip details.

DSL Victorious Secret

This group stayed with it for a two day trip and it paid off.

Day 1 unfortunately we were met with gusty northeast winds and rain showers which eventually mid day forced us off the water.

Day 2 however we were met with partly cloudy skies and light east winds. This made for some fun early morning topwater action on the SA bay oyster shell. Around 9am the bite tappered off, and we decided to relocate in time for the major feed period. Finding some sandy green water over a series of shell pads we hoped out of the boat armed with Down South Lures Victorious Secret and bone/silver topwaters. Landing a few reds at first we slowed down and dug in. Shortly after you could hear the excitement as the clients POC custom rod was doubled over. It was his personal best trout caught in the middle of the day working crotch deep shell pads.

I anticipate more of the same action the rest of this week with what our forecast shows, though towards weeks end we might have to dodge a few more rain showers.

DSL did it again

The last couple of days have started off strong with good bites from 6-9:30am. Then after that it fizzles to a one per wade kind of day.

The moon showed good feeds early then again late afternoon, just hard to believe it falls off that hard mid day. But, we’ll take what we can get and enjoy the rest.

Our best bites have come on DSL’s candy apple, watermelon, and natural. Did manage to catch one good trout on a plum nasty Double D that slipped out of my hands as I was trying to snap a pic.

Like the bait, fish have been holding up in knee to thigh deep water over shell, and also sand/grass.

Give us a shout for availability in June-August. Whether it’s wading or sight casting, we got you fishing adventure covered!

Top Water Trout in Seadrift!

Knowing that the winds were going to rip mid morning, we made a plan to leave the dock around 5:30 and hopefully get in a few hours of calmer conditions. And wouldn’t you know it, our plan came together. Finding rafts of finger mullet and some nervous ballyhoo on an oyster reef we decided to give it a try armed with blue/chrome spook jrs. and bone she dogs we began to blanket the reef.

Not 30 yards into the wade we were hooked up with a couple nice 20-22″ trout. For the next 2 hours I don’t think we moved more than 50 yards and were blessed with trout after trout from 18-23″. These fish were crushing our topwaters like it was their last meal. With the cool morning, these fish were knee deep to thigh deep on the reef. We did try a variety of lures, from soft plastics to Double D’s. We caught a few fish on these baits, but the hits didn’t seem to be as hard as the topwaters suggested. More of a tick or that hung up feeling with a slight head shake, so we decided to tie the topwaters back on and have some fun.

It’s funny how particular they can seem to be some days, but I guess if it ain’t broke don’t try to fix it. Our bite tappered off around 10am when the wind starting to pick up and the water quickly started turning to mud.

Since it was just one client, who at the age of 74 can hang in there with the best of them, we decided to make a few trolls down some leeward shorelines for some redfish. He took me to school on the redfish, catching 5 and loosing 2 before I got bit. After a couple trolls we decided to call it a day as we knew the winds were only going to get worse. Such an enjoyable time with a great friend! All our trout 20″ or better were released to fight another day.

Give us a call or send us a text to get in on the action. We have plenty of availability with all that is going on in the country for May-July. Hope to see y’all soon.
