Well teal season starts tomorrow so I decided to
get a jump on all the crazies and go fishing this morning. I hit the marsh
around Sabine Pass for some fishing. I wanted to explore a new area of the marsh
that I had never been in. I launched shortly after sunrise into what would be
higher than normal water levels, which seems to be the norm this year. I pushed
off and got on my way into searching some new marsh. I fished my way down along
a bayou, winding through marsh and then back to some ponds. There I found
plenty of lower slot redfish that were eager to eat a white 3" Gulp!
shrimp under a popping cork. I paddled around for few hours looking for some
upper slots that I could use for my upcoming tournament. Unfortunately, I didnít
find any I could use. I kept a limit of lower slots for some dinner and called
it a day. It won't be long before I leave the marsh and start hunting
for those winter time trout.
