Seadrift Fishing Report

We might not have caught a lot this afternoon in Seadrift, TX. ahead of the front, but the ones we did were solid!

Best bait today were DSL Dirty Tequila, Color X, and Corky Softdine XL bayou green/silver. Crotch deep water over grass beds worked the best.

Port Mansfield w Capt. Nathan Beabout

It has been a fun few days in Port Mansfield. We started off with a north wind 15-25mph with rain for two day. Ended with 5-10mph out of the SW and partly cloudy skies.

We fished all ranges of water columns, from shin deep to waist deep. What we quickly learned is the better trout were in the crotch deep zone over grass beds. Redfish were in this zone as well up to shin deep.

A variety of colors in Softdine XL’s, but that got narrowed down to 2-3 baits. Our best soft plastic was the DSL Strawberry Wine super model. Minus keeper size fish, these boys were rewarded with 4-6# trout for their efforts. One, set his personal best using lures with a nice 6 pounder. All our fish on our Mansfield trips are released, it is simply the search for a personal best!

It’s always a blast down here in Port, and I know next weeks cold front is really going to stir up the big bite. We still have open dates for Port Mansfield Trophy Trout, so give us a shout. We can try to set your new personal best!

Not a bad way to start the new year in Seadrift, TX.! Little to no boat traffic and miles of shallow flats holding good trout from 17-27”.

Our lure selection today ranged from DSL’s pumpkinseed to Corky fatboys and XL’s. Most fish were caught in knee to thigh deep water, wherever we could find concentrations of bait fish.

Folks, if y’all haven’t booked with us in either Seadrift or Port Mansfield, TX. this winter, you are missing out. Fishing continues to be strong, and many great weather days ahead. Give us a call for availability in either location.

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.
