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.

Seadrift Redfish Sight Casting Report

We were blessed to have some of the same fish from yesterday show up again today.

The cloud cover made it a little hard until mid morning, but with cleaner water and lower winds, the reds couldn’t resist the ‘ol DSL red/white and a black spoon.

Most of the fish were holding in 2-4 foot of water, and would rush into the bank to crush grass shrimp and crabs. Your reaction time had to be quick today or they would fall back deep out of sight.

Give is a call for availability for May-July, whether it’s sight casting or wading. Let’s go fishin’!

Seadrift, TX. Trout Fishing Report

Well when you try new areas and old areas you haven’t hit in a year, sometimes it’s a grind.

A good friend and I went out today for a little scouting/fun fish. We were in search of a big trout or two, but ended up with a handful of solid trout and a red.

A couple areas will be revisited because of the mass quantities of baitfish. Today’s conditions might not have shown the full potential of these areas.

The fish we did catch were crushing topwaters and Double D’s, and were all released for another day.

Plenty of open dates for May/June. Give us a call for your next wading or sight casting trip!

Big Spring Trout in Seadrift

Blessed to have customers that can still come down. These boys had a ball today catching solid trout and talking trash.

Our two go to baits today where DSL’s chicken of the c, kickin’ chicken, and bone/silver one knocker topwaters. The bite did tapper off once the wind started cranking.

I was fortunate enough to end the day releasing 5 trout from 4-6#. My POC custom rod, and 40# FINS windtamer braid got a work out. It never grts old, just wished one of my guys could have been the lucky one!

Give us a shout for May/June availability.

Seadrift sight casting report

Sunny skies with a 10-15mph east wind put us trolling in small protected marsh ponds adjacent to deep guts.

The DSL natural burner shad on a POC custom rod tied to 20# Fins windtamer braid on a 1/4oz. jig head was the meal ticket!

Seadrift Report 4/7-4/8/20

It’s always a fun two day with this group. We caught some solid trout and even managed to let a few get away from us, but that’s how it goes sometimes.

Wading knee to waist deep shell/mud was the ticket to finding our fish. Three baits have been producing consistently for us. They are the Softdine XL opening night and Down South Lures chicken of the c and blue moon. We are rigging these baits with 1/8oz jig heads. Throwing the Softdine when fish are up shallow on the reefs, and the DSL’s when we find them near the drops.

Unfortunately day two was cut short after a couple wades due to motor trouble. I’d like to thank Cooper Hartmann for taking time out of his day to lend a hand.

Folks, fishing remains to be good with solid fish being caught. If y’all wanna go, give us a call. A lot of our groups are simply driving in the morning of.

And yes, Down South Lures catches them all! Lol
