I know this is a little late but
I've had quite a bit going on in my off the water life here lately. So I hit my favorite marsh over here
by the Sabine Lake area bright and early on a peaceful Sunday morning. Looking
to find some Redfish and some quiet time to relax my brain and unwind from a
long stressful week of work at the plant.
I was not disappointed at all, from
the time I hit the water until I returned to the launch it was a nonstop
fishing frenzy. I found trout busting shad on my way back to the marsh and
started catching them on small top waters until I finally got to the marsh
entrance and made my way back to where I would start seeing and catching
Redfish, after Redfish, after Redfish.
I found Redfish roaming around in
the middle of some marsh ponds chasing shad and riding the tide coming into the
marsh. I picked off several throwing the small Rapala Skitter-walk and after
about an hour or so of catching Redfish on top waters I started finding some
fish tailing around the edges of the grass. I started feeding them a Buggs Jig
that they were more than happy to hit. I paddled and fished for about 4 1/2
hours and saw fish either tailing or just moving about all morning.
The flounder were in there pretty
thick as well but with all the shad to eat they wanted nothing to do with any
bait I had to offer them. On my way back I made an emergency water rescue, a dragon
fly that apparently couldn't get off the water, so I scooped him up and let
ride along until he dried off.
