Well I finally made it
back out on the water for the first time in awhile.
I hit the the launch at
TX bayou there south of Sabine Pass at about 6:30, the wind was calm and
tide was going out so and I had a few little short rain showers blow
through. With the tide falling I concentrated on the drains coming
out of the marsh as I worked my way down the bayou. I stayed in the main bayou
heading down stopping to fish all the drains, I was throwing a Chicken on a
Chain Bass Assasin on 1/8oz Yellow Mouth jig head and a white Buggs
bonefish jig. I caught several reds, both undersized and some mid to lower slot
along with two undersized flounder and a few 14" trout, I kept a limit of
reds for christmas dinner.
I found that the deeper
drains tended to hold fish better than the shallower ones. I fished down
another little bayou that is on the left after you make the curve and found
some reds hanging out in the middle of the bayou just blind casting soft
plastics. I had a report that there are still some flounder hanging out in the
channel around D!ck Dowling park if your looking for some last minute Christmas
The Houston boat show start on Jan 3-12 and I'll be working
both Saturdays at the Fishing Tackle Unlimited booth for Native Watercraft, so
if your interested in kayaking or just want to talk fishing come on by and see
me. I hope have everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday and happy new year.
