It took us a couple wades to locate them this morning, and when we did it was an aggressive bite from solid trout. Water colorwas clean to a small greenish tint, and was loaded with rafts of finger mullet.
With the early morning cloud cover they want DSL chicken of the c, then when the sun popped out it was all strawberry wine and dirty tequila. Both the 4” and super models worked today. Most fish were holding in thigh deep water with scattered sand pockets.
All fish over 23” were released for another day. Give me a call, shoot me a text, or check out our website for open dates and pricing. We have availability for May-July. Get on down here and become a part of the action!
Had a fun morning walking waist deep sand pockets on the hunt for big trout. We were throwing Down South Lures super models in Chicken of the C and Victorious Secret.
We released all our fish today and didn’t have a fish under 20″, we did see a few in the 7-8# range but could only manage a 5.5# at 25″ as our biggest fish for that wade.
With trout spawning on a regular basis due to warm spring/summer time temps, these pockets of bigger trout will continue to be found. They will lay dormant for a few days after they spawn, but will be back on an aggressive feed when they are ready. Don’ t miss out on some great fishing, during this late spring early summer pattern.
Contact us today for more booking info, we have dates available for May-July, and the fishing will not disappoint.
Something about being on the water Sunday morning. Another great wade wiith new customers. These high school boys, showed dad how to do it! Lol
That’s what its’s about teaching the future generations.
DSL White Ice was the ticket, with a couple fish landed on Strawberry Wine. We started the day working knee deep sand pockets and followed the bait out to the waist deep line around 11:30. With light ene winds, water was clear with some areas holding a green tint, fished seemed to be a little more scattered today, but we had room to walk.
May-July dates available, water is nice and cool for wet wades, and fish are hungry. You just need to be here!
I believe the ladies put a whoopin’ on the boys! Found a small stretch of shoreline today with no pressure on it, decided to dig in a stick it out. Staying paid off, we had consistent bite for the better part of the day.
17-22” trout were holding in stained water about thigh deep. They fell for DSL white ice, and victorious secret both in the super model on 1/8oz jig heads.
We have weekday openings for May-July, solid fish remain a constant, come on down and get in on the action! All lures, all wading.
Teaching young 13 year old Will the right way, and he was a quick learner. Geared up with Waterloo Salinity, Fins Windtamer, Down South Lures, and some Hookset Gear he managed to catch a few for dinner!We still have some weekday openings for May-July. Fishing continues to be consistant, with fish ranging from 17-27”, many in the 18-21” range. Knee to thigh deep water.
But, if wading isn’t for you call us about sight casting reds, and enjoy a day in our back marsh chasing these shallow water reds.
The last couple days has been a bit of a brain teaser on the hunt for big trout. Seeing several 26-28” fish, we threw the box at em, but just couldn’t get them to eat. Catching several 18-22” fish didn’t seem to be as hard with DSL’s and Softdine XL’s. We even got to sight cast a couple reds in shin deep water.
Persistence payed off today as we combed over the same areas, just hitting each area at different times than the day before. I ended up landing a big trout on the Victorious Secret super model.
And a big thanks to Donnie at POC Rod&Gun, for getting my guys fixed up with some tackle and reels repaired.
From the first to the last wade, we were blessed with a solid trout bite. Knee to thigh deep, dirty to clear sand pockets with rafts of bait is how we concentrated our wades today. DSL Blue Moon and Corky Softdines got tore up. Our best bites were early till about 10:30, then 1:30-3pm. Most all our fish were between 19-23”, and unfortunately two got away that were over the 26” mark. But, there is always tomorrow.
When these boys got out on their first wade, they told me it was an Empty Stringer kind of day! Thanks boys for showing a little conservation for next time.
Call me today, to get in on some of this action. May-July dates still available.
These boys stuck with it today as we bounced from shoreline to shoreline trying to find a bite. Got on one stretch which had reds holding in shin deep water, but as we sight casted to them they wouldn’t even flinch. Finally we ended up in an area with all the right ingredients, rafts of mullet and stained water. Throwing DSL super model Salt Sassyon an 1/8oz. jig head, we were bowed up on 17-21” trout. Great way to end the day with good customers. Thanks boys for staying with it, and thanks Empire Lodge for introducing me to these guys.
With some tough winds from the south, then the north. Our wade fishing trips have been slow. Today we got to shift gears with some new folks who wanted to teach their boy how to fish. Little Kevin wasn’t up for wading but we did grab his attention when we mentioned sight casting fish. Couldn’t have asked for a better day, little to no boat traffic, sunny skies and light north winds.
We found protection in the mangrove covered marsh of Matagorda Island. With receding north winds the marsh was starting to fall, pulling many fish off of small hidden flats and bars into creeks and drains.
Although we saw 75+ redfish today, a lot of them wouldn’t eat, you could make a perfect cast saying “here we go” and they would just slide right on past never flinching. Not sure if it was from the past weather or if the conditions were to perfect and the barometer was to high. But, we knew eventually they should feed, and finally around noon we started see blow ups on the banks. The fish we caught today were on Down South Lures red flash and Buggs Fishing Texas tea.
People may have different opinions on trophy trout, but when two of your customers set there new personal best in the same day, that’s trophy class!
Congrats to these two boys who fished with me in Seadrift today.
With the water coming up 8”-1ft over night, fish were found tight to the grass. Our lure selection didnt change much, and if it had Chartruese in it, it was getting thumped. We walked through huge rafts of mullet today, and in knee deep water only had about 3-4” of visibility. Trout ranged from 17-26” and everything over 23” was released.
If your not booked with us in April or May, your missing out on some of the best months to catch big trout on the Middle Texas Coast. Contact me today to get your date booked, you will not regret it.
Despite the winds we were able to find a good trout bite, and ended the day with a nice Seadrift trout. We had a lot of topwater action early. Then later in the day it was Chicken of the C and Softdines. Most all our fish were caught in shin deep to knee deep water.
We still have plenty of April and May openings, come on down and get in on the action!
Heading out of Seadrift this morning, I thought it was going to be a great pre front day. Especially when on the first wade and back to back cast, you hook two solid fish on topwaters. We grinded when the wind picked up, but once it started to settle we found another trout bite. This bite was fast and had good 16-18” trout mixed in with some smalls. Ending up releasing 5 trout over 20” on any day is good. Thanks boys for hanging in there.
Most of our fish were caught in knee to thigh deep water over grass beds and shell. Our bait selection was small today, but it worked, especially the pink topwater!
We have weekday openings for April and May. If your a beginner or expert, come on down. I enjoy teaching and possibly showing new tricks and tactics.
