Gulf Coast fishing

Group #2 of days 3 and 4 had a pretty good go at wade fishing.

Yesterday we started in the dark fishing over sand/grass hoping the moon would bring us a couple of big fish. Biggest fish we had was 23”. We left that and found solid trout and redfish on oyster reefs in SA bay. The bait of choice was DSL’s blue moon. Fish were holding in 2-3ft of water under a raft of mullet.

Today we were met with a 3 hour rain delay. After watching the lightning crack over the bay, we knew it could be tough, but had to go try. We walked knee to thigh deep sand pockets throwing chicken of the c, plum, and blue moon. Ended up with a handful of dink trout, one solid trout that thumped it on the end of my cast, but had some nice keeper reds for our effort.

Over to the POC jetties the next couple days to battle big reds.

Seadrift trout and redfish

Fun day sight cast with Bobby Sullivan. Perfect wind and sunny conditions. Redfish were aggressive early up on the flats, then around 11am they fell out to deeper water. DSL super models victorious secret, color x, and hogie lures did the trick.

Plenty of dates open for August and September if anybody wants to get in on this Middle Coast action. Whether it’s wading or sight casting, give us a call to book your trip.

Seadrift wade fishing

The stars must have aligned today! Longest lasting trout bite we’ve seen in a couple weeks.

Our first wade at daylight was the best regarding numbers, and as we got into mid afternoon though the bites were less, it was quality fish from 20-23”.

Knee to waist deep sand pockets with rafts of mullet worked best. DSL victorious secret and Mirrodines were our best baits.

Even managed to run into a pod of 20-30 reds as I was walking back to the boat. Picked off 3 throwing a gold spoon before they scattered.

We still have plenty of availability in July and August. Let’s go fishing before school sports and events kick back off!

Seadrift report

Grinded it out in a bit today through some morning fog and rain. But, it’s always a lot of fun to take a first time wader. Mrs. Noel did a great job, first out of the boat, and managed to catch a few throwing DSL pumpkinseed and chicken of the c. Other fish fell for a Mirro-dine.

Hopefully the fronts are behind us, and we can move into some great Spring action. Give us a shout to get your trip booked, plenty of April-June dates available.

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.

DSL Chicken of the C strikes again!

Good to be back on the water after some much needed rain! With the wind starting low we were able to walk a reef on our fisrt wade, with good numbers of 17-20″ trout.

Once the wind picked up we headed to the sand pockets of the shorelines. There we walked into several trout in the 20+ inch range.

Baits today started off with DSL chicken of the c on the reefs, and blue moon and majic grass on the shorelines.

Plenty of open dates available for this late summer/fall action. Give us a call and let’s go fishin’!

Redfish Spot and Stalk

Fun day of sight casting! We had the perfect weather, light south winds 5-10mph and sunny skies. With these low tides fish are grouped up along shorelines and drains. Had a great photographer with us this morning who captured some cool pics of these reds. She was able to capture reds crushing grass shrimp and bait fish on the bank, and one really cool close up of a red coming up to inhale our lure. A handful of fish we saw were up to shallow for us, and just had to wait them out. We had a lot of refusals until mid morning, then the bite started coming together.

If wading isn’t for you, and you would like to experience the saltwater version of spot and stalk deer hunting give us a shout and let’s go chase redfish through the miles and miles of back country Matagorda Island has to offer.

All you need to bring is a good pair of polarized sunglasses and some food and drink.

Capt. Beabout fishing report

The plan came together today. Our first wade over thigh to waist deep sand pockets produced good numbers of trout. The water was chalky green and the baits that worked best were white ice, dirty tequila, and pumpkinseed.

Lunch time we decided to walk knee deep flats looking for cruising reds, and after an hour or so of walking, 3 pods of 10-15 reds showed up in front of us. Gold spoons and pumpkinseed is what we threw, but I don’t believe it really mattered! Lol

Capt. Nathan Beabout Fish-N-Gig

Good way to kick off June! New customers who are taking part of our Fish N Gig package grinded it out for some nice trout and snagged a few reds out of a small pod.

Mixed in with the reds was a healthy trout, who was released to fight another day. Most fish today were caught in knee to thigh deep water in rafts of mullet throwing a variety of baits. Salt Sassy and Victorious Secret for the off colored water, and Strawberry Wine, Blue Moon, and Pumpkinssed for the trout green water.

I know these boys will have fun gigging with Rick Hammond of Night Stalker Guide Service.

Ladies fishing report

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.

Seadrift Fishing Report

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.

May-July availability.
