Port Mansfield Fishing Report

With a break in the weather and slightly warmer temps and below normal tides, we were able to find some fish concentrated. These fish were holding around drop offs with shallow grass flats close by. The topwater bite was aggressive for about an hour in the mornings, then softdine XL’s in green and green/black did the trick.

Although it was not the big fish we were hoping for, who can complainmuch about catching 4-5# trout. With the water temps getting to were they need to be in order to trigger these big fish, I have high expectations for this winter’s fishing.

Dates available:

Dec. 31-Jan 3

Fishing in Port Mansfield with Capt. Beabout

Been a weather battle this week in Port Mansfield so far. Monday we had favorable winds early and had a couple big trout slip away. The cold front seemed to halt everything but the redfish bite for a couple days. Throwing soft plastics rigged weedless seemed to be the best. DSL’s dirty tequila, white ice, and magic grass were the top baits.

Today has been a slow warm up in water and air temps. The bite was on at sunrise and throwing Softdine XL’s in green/black and Texas chicken we had trout to 22” and one 5 pounder showed up to play. More redfish than you could shake a stick at.

With our weather pattern gradually getting warmer over the next few days, we are hopeful that the big trout we have seen will start to eat. Nothin’ to complain about being in Mansfield, and we know the bigs will start to become aggressive.

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.

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.

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.

Fun day on the water with this group. Had a good bite early, then as the sun climbed high it tapered off. Trout were caught a variety of baits today. DSL strawberry wine, Double D’s, and Mirrolures.

Most of our fish were caught over crotch deep sand pockets, we managed a few over knee deep grass beds. Good times and lots of good fishing stories were exchanged. Can’t wait to see this crew again.

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.

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!

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.
