After another big cold snap, which I saw no dead fish down there anywhere I traveled, the bite didn't get going until mid morning each day. We watched as the water temp would climb into the high 50's to lower 60's. Most of our fish were caught in crotch deep water, with the exception of a few reds caught in knee deep water. The water color was great, just enough to make out the outline of the sand pockets. We would scatter out and bomb each sand pocket we came to three or fou
Things started coming to life around 10:30am in Port Mansfield today. Redfish were hitting hard, but the few trout we caught were very light, almost the hung up in grass feeling. Good news is we have much warmer temps now and for the next few days. The trout bite should get more aggressive.
Still have a few February and March openings for Seadrift and Port Mansfield!
Great day on the water. It took us a few stops to get it dialed in, and the key was finding the rafts of mullet. Under that mullet were 16-19” trout and mid-slot reds. We had our fair share of smalls, but hard to leave when the next bite was solid. DSL Pumpkinseed, Strawberry Wine, and Corky Softdine XL’s helped us put fish in the box.

Just about everybody knows this year’s fishery on the Middle Texas Coast was probably the best we’ve seen in years. And, most folks know it takes a cold winter like the one we are experiencing to get the Trophy trout to really start to feed in big numbers. I believe this winter is going to be epic up and down the coast.
