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

Seadrift Trout and Redfish Report

Kicking off trips back in the home waters of Seadrift, TX. today. Had a good trout bite going early with the major feed, of trout 16-18”. Even hooked into a couple reds tight to the bank. With the ENE winds bait was pushed tight to the bank.

Walking knee to thigh deep we caught fish on a variety of lures. Dark topwaters, toxic tide Double D, DSL’s chicken of the c, and clients were throwing some of the chicken boy lures.

All our fish were released to fight another day!

Give us a call or shoot us a text to get in on the action before it gets hot. April and May dates available.

Port Mansfield Fishing Report

With a break in the weather and slightly warmer temps and below normal tides, we were able to find some fish concentrated. These fish were holding around drop offs with shallow grass flats close by. The topwater bite was aggressive for about an hour in the mornings, then softdine XL’s in green and green/black did the trick.

Although it was not the big fish we were hoping for, who can complainmuch about catching 4-5# trout. With the water temps getting to were they need to be in order to trigger these big fish, I have high expectations for this winter’s fishing.

Dates available:

Dec. 31-Jan 3

Jan 14-16

Fishing in Port Mansfield with Capt. Beabout

Been a weather battle this week in Port Mansfield so far. Monday we had favorable winds early and had a couple big trout slip away. The cold front seemed to halt everything but the redfish bite for a couple days. Throwing soft plastics rigged weedless seemed to be the best. DSL’s dirty tequila, white ice, and magic grass were the top baits.

Today has been a slow warm up in water and air temps. The bite was on at sunrise and throwing Softdine XL’s in green/black and Texas chicken we had trout to 22” and one 5 pounder showed up to play. More redfish than you could shake a stick at.

With our weather pattern gradually getting warmer over the next few days, we are hopeful that the big trout we have seen will start to eat. Nothin’ to complain about being in Mansfield, and we know the bigs will start to become aggressive.

Dates available:
Dec 31-Jan 3

Chasing Port Mansfield Trophy Trout!

Great start to our Port Mansfield, TX Trophy Trout Season. Although the weather did not cooperate, we managed to find some solid trout mixed in with some heavy redfish.

Under the calm conditions we worked One Knocker topwaters and weedless DSL white ice in knee to thigh deep gin clear water. Spreading out and barely walking, fan casting all around and especially at small rafts of bait proved to be most effective.

We saw several larger trout in the area, and I know that with even just a little wind it could have been possible. Folks if you haven’t been to the Lower Laguna, you are missing the trip of a lifetime.

Our only dates left are:
Dec. 31-Jan 3
Jan 14-16

Three day minimum booking required, catch and release on all trout and reds. We are simply down there to seek out your personal best.
