Seadrift Trout Report

Started before sun up wading for trout with DSL’s chicken of the c, on the oyster shell. The trout weren’t wanting to play nice today.

So as the winds slicked off we decided to go chase pods of reds. The first shoreline we pulled up to had reds in small groups, and singles crawling down the bank. But wouldn’t you know it, they didn’t wanna play either. Making some really good casts on single fish swimming right at us, and nothing. It took a few hours and a couple of moves to finally stick a few fish.

You would have thought with the perfect conditions, the outcome would have had a perfect ending. But, sometimes this is how it goes. We were in the right zip code, and tomorrow is a different day.

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.

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.
