Group #3 of days 5 and 6 wanted to battle bull reds and flounder gig on their trips. It wasn’t exactly calm at the jetties over the two days, and the wind gave them fits last night. But, they managed to battle reds up to 45” and stick a few flounder.
This capped off a very fun 6 day saltwater experience. I look forward to the next 11 years with this crew.
This year marks 11 years this group has been fishing with us. This year they are on a 8 event, 6 day trip trading out between family and friends.
These boys elected to flounder with Rick Hammond, Night Stalker Guide Service a couple nights between trips.
Sight Casting yesterday until mid morning was tough with the cloud bank that rolled in a day break. After it cleared we did manage to find the reds layed up in some creeks adjacent to shallow flats. Had a handful of fish cooperate before the feed shut off, and the others acted like we weren’t even there. The fish we did trick were on DSL watermelon and red/white with a 1/4oz jig head.
We spent today at the POC jetties. This was why the booked all them years ago. So to keep up with tradition each year, we make sure at least one day is marked to go out there and battle the big girls. Bulls from 40-47” is what they were rewarded with.
Hopefully they will be rewarded with some good trout and redfish action tomorrow wade fishing.
Good trout bite this morning until about 10am throwing plum/chart DSL’s. Then it slowed, luckily we had some redfish on a reef that wanted to play.
We made a couple more wades striking out on trout, but by 12:30 we managed a steady trout bite. Had to do some walking in the afternoon, but managed a good stringer. Our afternoon bite was on a variety of DSL baits, blue moon, pumpkinseed, and color x. Most all the fish were caught in thigh deep sandy green water.
We had a good time this morning chasing solid trout up to
24”. It was slow at first light with calm winds, but as the morning went on the
wind picked up to a steady 10-12mph ESE.
With water still high most all our fish were found within
40 yards of the bank. Had a few fish slap the topwater, but what they couldn’t
turn down was soft plastics. DSL chicken of the c, and Bass Assassin electric
shad did the trick.
Give us a call to get in on this late summer/early fall
The reds didn’t want to play at first light this morning. We watched a few fish come from the deep, and once they were in range wanted nothing to do with us. After a couple hours of waiting them out, to see if their attitudes would change, we decided to move onto new waters.
Luckily our new area had 2 small schools of reds feeding aggressively. We managed a few double hook ups, and lost a couple before calling it a day.
DSL’s victorious secret super model and FINS windtamer 20# braid got the job done. The weather looks good in the extended forecast, if you don’t care to wade come try your hand at sight casting. Plenty of dates available in Sept/Oct.
The sight casting day started off a litte questionable,
with the much needed rain in the area.
We started off drifting the grass flats throwing hunch backs and black
Around 9:30 storms died along with the wind, the sun came
out and we got the chance to chase one small school. Then we set up the tower and right away had
reds on the surface wanting our DSL victorious secret and white ice super
Definitely a top 3 in days of sight casting reds. We never had to set up the tower, because the large school of 100 fish stayed on the surface all day.
Throwing gold, black, and copper spoons we had several triple hook ups and countless doubles. So much fun watching reds tail and float on the surface. The weather was great, plenty of sun and 5-15mph ENE winds makes the water clear. Good enough to see the orange ball moving around!
Girls can too! Lots of fun on this evening trip. These ladies were on ‘em before sunset until the storm ran us off.
We waded crotch to waist deep sand pockets throwing DSL strawberry wine. Lots of trout 16-18”, and a few that slipped away. Good times had by all! Thanks Brett and Carrie Garmany Mauthe for a fun evening.
Happy Father’s Day! I spent the day with a father son team wanting to learn summertime artificial tactics. With the wind conditions today it was a little tough, but we managed to find some trout green water mid morning and a had a 30-45 minute window with good solid bites.
After the nasty water moved in we spent the remainder of the day walking sandbars sight casting to reds and bigger trout. Fish were very spooky today.
July/August usually host more days of calmer winds, perfect for wade fishing or some great times sight casting reds in the miles of marsh around Seadrift, TX. Give me a call to book a trip before school and all the sports kick off again.
