Here goes nothing ??? I do not post many reports or pics , because of past events on this site. Having said that, if you do not want to see any reds on a stringer DO NOT LOOK ANY FURTHER!! By 8 am this morning me and my number one Nephew, put together a show that was simply awesome. Topwater and tails were the ticket. We also caught 5 trout that would have, made any one smile.Top Dog (Woodpecker) , and LSU tails 1/4 oz heads. We caught 10-12 on tops and 10 more on tails , including 5 trout by 8 am this morning .. !! Folks the fishing has been awesome. I will not disclose area, but BAIT, BAIT AND BAIT are the key ingredient. SLICKS ARE VITALLY IMPORTANT AT THIS TIME. I BELIEVE ONE COULD PUT TOGETHER A PATTERN USING THAT. A lot of folks on the water, please be careful. :)

RedX,
If your from Port Neeches... Were you fishing Sabine? Just curious, but understand not giving away your spots. My family's in Lumberton, and I'm in Houston. Hope to catch a few in E. bay this weekend. Great report, that is surely one stringer to be proud of. Gets me pumped up for this weekend!!!

Thanks guys, I appreciate the comments, Since Rita the Shrimp Population along with Shad, Mullet and The Dolphins(just kiddin') have been ASTRONOMICAL in proportion to years past. Since 3 weeks after last year(Rita) ,the fishin' has been far and away better. No doubt, the Hurricane did not do us any favors for our property , but the Fishin' even through the winter was outstanding, I cannot remember in recent history a population of Reds as I am seeing now. Maybe the early 90's. I decided to keep a few today , I normally don't , only if I need some for a feed. But this trip has been duplicated numerous times this year. The tides as of late has been a friend.. Hey Brian,(bslittle79) I released a 27" trout this morning on a Top Dog Jr.(red head,char top and gold middle) What a fish, the one in the picture is 25". We should have stayed , but the tide was playing out and so was the bite .. Good luck guys, from what I am hearing it is going on everywhere .

Nice going, Brad ... definitely some slick water there. No wind over this morning either.

p.s. I'll bite ... I don't like seeing reds on a stringer ...


.... I like to see 'em sizzling in a black skillet! :D
