Bull Reds and Trout

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.

Seadrift Trout and Redfish

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 action.

Texas redfish

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.

Redfish Report

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 spoons.

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 models.

Give us shout for available dates August-October.

Awesome Redfish!

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!

Ladies Fishing the Texas Coast

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.

Seadrift Fishing Report

Great day one with this North Texas family. Took us a bit to find a consistant bite, and when we did it was all smiles.

Crotch to waist deep grass beds with rafts of bait, throwing DSL’s Victorious Secret and Strawberry Wine did the trick.

The North wind was giving us trouble on day two, not many bites on the trout. But, did manage to have a customer land his PB on a DSL strawberry wine, Fins Braid 20# windtamer, and a 7’6” Waterloo salinity. The trout was 25”@4.25#, she was caught fishing a windward bank over thigh deep grass beds. This fish was released to fight another day.

The boys also had a couple of PB reds, Cannon with his first ever red on day one at 27.75”@8#, and Kyler with a brute at 31”@9.50# on day two. Both reds were fooled by Down South Lures victorious secret.

Sight Casting to Redfish

Great day sight casting reds in Seadrift, TX. ESE winds 5-15, very few clouds, clean water and some hungry reds.

Most of the fish were found at the mouth of creeks, or laying on the tops of sandbars just inside the creeks. DSL watermelon was the bait they couldn’t resist, on a 1/4oz Owner Cutting Point jig head.

With normal tides, redfish numbers look like they are growing in the marsh. If wade fishing isn’t for you, lets spend the day sight casting fish.

Seadrift Fishing Report

With the Texas weather we decided to change tactics this morning. We figured if a trout bite did happen today it wouldn’t be until late. So, Redfish were on the menu, and luckily they wanted to play.

Found a good but very light bite in knee deep scattered shell/mud. Throwing DSL chicken of the c and strawberry wine were the ticket.

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.
