Despite dodging a few much needed rain showers, the topwater bite was great. Both trout and reds crushed it walking over knee to thigh deep sand pockets.
Once the wind laid between storms we, switched to DSL strawberry wine and Mirrodines. Walking thigh deep to waist deep we had a good mix of trout from 16 to 25 inches, redfish were 22 to 24 inches. #wadefishing #SanAntonioBay #texassaltwaterfishing #lonestarsalt #saltwaterfishing #speckledtrout #texasfishingreports
Definitely a top 3 in days of sight casting reds. We never had to set up the tower, because the large school of 100 fish stayed on the surface all day.
Throwing gold, black, and copper spoons, we had several triple hook ups and countless doubles. So much fun watching reds tail and float on the surface. The weather was great, plenty of sun and 5 - 15 mph ENE winds makes the water clear - good enough to see the orange ball moving around!

We fished a wide range of depths over sand/grass, as well as some oyster shell . Our best baits today were DSL’s Strawberry Wine, Kickin’ Chicken, and Victorious Secret.

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 w
