After another big cold snap, which I saw no dead fish down there anywhere I traveled. The bite didn’t get going until mid morning each day. We watched as the water temp would climb into the high 50’s to lower 60’s. Most of our fish were caught in crotch deep water, with the exception of a few reds caught in knee deep water. The water color was great, just enough to make out the outline of the sand pockets.
We would scatter out and bomb each sand pocket we came to three or four times before moving on. What we found was the back side of the pocket held the most fish, if you threw into the grass, drug your bait to the edge and let it fall, thump, you had a fish on. We had several fish this week between 3-5 pounds, a few that made the 6 pound mark, 1 over 8 pounds. I appreciate my clients for being a part of Empty Stringers. All the trout and reds swam off to fight another day.
Our fish were caught on a variety of baits from DSL super models, Corkys, topwaters, and the S. Carolina boys favorites DOA.

With temps warming up and the tide dropping fishing is getting back to what we have been use to here on the Middle Coast. Walking knee to thigh deep grass beds throwing Down South Lures soft plastics, we saw limits of trout and reds today.

This husband and wife team had the ulimate adventure. Last night the gigged flounder in Rockport with Rick Hammond of Night Stalker Guide Service. The Report was great, after sticking 4-5 nice flounder they started to become selective and put a handful of good size flounder in the boat. Getting off the water and back to their hotel, they had enough time to relax and catch a exciting Astros game.

Day 3 these boys ended with a bang! Got on an awesome pre-front bite and was back at the dock about the time it hit.
This morning we walked the same stretch and again it didn’t disappoint. Had a few solid redfish, and released 4-5 trout between 21-23″, and in almost back to back cast I was blessed to catch two trout between 26-27″ on the rod.

Had a couple personal best set today, and one first time. The personal best was a trout by 2nd day wading, Mason at 25″ tout and his dad John K Mikkelsen’s 30″ redfish. Manuel Sanchez had the first black drum on soft plastic!
It was an eventful day with many solid fish caught, gonna hit the same stretch of shoreline one more time tomorrow, maybe we can upgrade! Lol

It was a fun few days in Port Mansfield. Redfish were everywhere but trout proved harder to find. Walked a lot of knee deep water sight casting to schools. We did find a few solid trout and one trophy mixed in with the pods. On the road home to try our hand a sight casting off the tower tomorrow in Seadrift.

It started and ended with a bang. The in between was a bit of a grind. We got on a good trout bite at first light with several 17-20″ fish landed. From 11am to 1pm was a bit slow, still managed a few keeper fish on each wade, then after some lunch we jumped back out to find ourselves walking into some very solid trout and one 26 incher.

Well considering yesterday’s strange bite for us, I was preparing for a grinder today. But, we were blessed on our first wade, walking right into a feeding school of trout. It didn’t take long and the DSL soft plastics did there thing! Spent the rest of the day looking for big fish, and found a couple 22-24″ers.

The trout were acrobatic today. Jumping like skip jack the whole fight! The bite was a lot more aggressive today over thigh deep sand pockets, and the Strawberry Wine super model was the ticket today. Continue reading Capt. Nathan Beabout Fishing Report 9/23/2017
The trout bite was a little off today, there didn’t seem to be a consistent pattern. Fish were not concentrated in certain depths like the last few days. Knee deep to waist deep had bites with some trout over the 20″ mark.
Maybe over the next few days with the stiffer winds, we may see bait stack up. If so, i think we can locate a better bite. Continue reading Fishing Report 9/22/2017
Little scouting trip with my good buddy Jason Wagenfehr today, getting ready for some upcoming trips. San Antonio Bay is in great shape, miles and miles of green water to fish. Pumpkinseed, watermelon, white ice, and even some topwaters tricked some aggressive trout and reds today.
Seadrift hotels and restaurants are open. I have availability in late September, and a handful of weekdays in October.
