Seadrift, TX. Wade Fishing

This is what it’s about right here. These 11 and 12 year old buddies say they’ve been fishing together since they were 5 and 6.

Imagine what kind of sticks they will be in 20 years. Their lure selection, knots, retrieves and simple handling of fish was impressive to watch.

Today we had trout up to 22” and was in fish most of the morning. Thigh to crotch deep on the grown ups over grass was the ticket. Our main colors were plum/chart, and purple reign. Even managed a couple on topwaters mid morning.

All our fish were realeased in good shape to fight another day.

3 day crew wading Seadrift, TX.

It has been a fun 3 days with these boys from North Texas. We caught a lot of fish on a variety of baits. Topwaters, DSL Victorious Secret, Bass Assassian Morning Glory, and Mirrodine XL’s all saw action.

We made it work with the winds we were delt the first two days. we caught a lot of reds each day. On day two we did manage a couple solid trout and several 17-19” trout. Day three we opted to try a new area. We had a great bite early during the minor feed period. After that the reds turned on.

Our major feed period was slower than normal, but we had some solid redfish during that period.

It is always fun spending multiple days with a group. They got to see and understood the adjustments that took place to be successful, each day under the changing conditions.

Thank y’all gentlemen for releasing the catch over 3 days!

Seadrift Sight Casting for Big Redfish!

Another cloud cover day, but that didn’t stop us from chasing reds in the marsh. Not only was it this wife’s first time to land a redfish, she had the hot hand of the day.

POC Custom Rods, DSL’s pearl/chart, 1/8 oz DSL jig heads, and a couple gulps worked like a charm.

Seadrift, TX. Report

Another fun day on the water! We were blessed in another area of our bay system. We located rafts of mullet and glass minnows early, and walked into a bite.

Being on the backside of the full moon, the bite tappered off mid morning. With just a few redfish playing in the early afternoon. Soft plastics, and baby Softdine worked the best. All the fish were released in good shape.

Seadrift Sight Casting Report

Well it worked out, we found fish super skinny, and even in flooded up areas that are typically dry. These fish were fooled by DSL’s candy apple and color x. These clients released all their reds, just out havin’ fun!

Wednesday and Thursday look great for sight casting. If you have ever wanted to try it, give us a call.

Personal Best Flounder!

Great day chasing redfish with DSL’s high cotton, and popping cork/gulp on some custom POC Rods.

Even managed a couple nice flounder, of which one was the clients personal best at 21.5”. Caught the reds early, and spent the day playing catch and release. It’s always nice to have trips like this with repeat clients.

Seadrift Report

Not a bad way to start the morning! Couple solid trout and a healthy flounder.

Working windward banks throwing DSL’s white ice and strawberry wine. Everything is getting to swim to fight another day.

The redfish started feeding around 10:30, and was best on blue moon and dirty tequila.

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.

Seadrift Redfish Report

Had a fun morning with a good buddy, Chris. We went playing lolking for some reds for upcoming trips. All our fish were released to fight another day.

Looks like the wind may finally blow itself out by the weekend, with next week returning to a normal pattern. If you would like to sight cast and chase some redfish around give me a call!

DSL Victorious Secret

This group stayed with it for a two day trip and it paid off.

Day 1 unfortunately we were met with gusty northeast winds and rain showers which eventually mid day forced us off the water.

Day 2 however we were met with partly cloudy skies and light east winds. This made for some fun early morning topwater action on the SA bay oyster shell. Around 9am the bite tappered off, and we decided to relocate in time for the major feed period. Finding some sandy green water over a series of shell pads we hoped out of the boat armed with Down South Lures Victorious Secret and bone/silver topwaters. Landing a few reds at first we slowed down and dug in. Shortly after you could hear the excitement as the clients POC custom rod was doubled over. It was his personal best trout caught in the middle of the day working crotch deep shell pads.

I anticipate more of the same action the rest of this week with what our forecast shows, though towards weeks end we might have to dodge a few more rain showers.

DSL did it again

The last couple of days have started off strong with good bites from 6-9:30am. Then after that it fizzles to a one per wade kind of day.

The moon showed good feeds early then again late afternoon, just hard to believe it falls off that hard mid day. But, we’ll take what we can get and enjoy the rest.

Our best bites have come on DSL’s candy apple, watermelon, and natural. Did manage to catch one good trout on a plum nasty Double D that slipped out of my hands as I was trying to snap a pic.

Like the bait, fish have been holding up in knee to thigh deep water over shell, and also sand/grass.

Give us a shout for availability in June-August. Whether it’s wading or sight casting, we got you fishing adventure covered!
