NEWB- fishing seawolf park

With cooler weather coming and flounder/redfish moving out of the bay, I'd like to try fishing seawolf park over the next few mnths. I've never fished that area before. I see waders in the north area off the shoreline and there's a pier also. I don't desire to fish the channel side.

Any tips or info on wading this area would be very much appreciated. WIthout wading there before are there any areas to avoid? deep holes or cuts? I'm familiar with shuffling my feet and not trusting a transitioning slope :-)

thanks in advance.

Just get there once its light out and watch what the other people do. I haven't been in a while, but no real dangers. Some sunken tires, trash, but like you said, shuffle until you know where stuff is.

It's too early for that area for flounder other than a few resident males. I wouldn't hunt there until after late October. Better odds of catching a bull red but other areas might be better like the jetties, especially with the calm winds we've been having.

I just created the first part of the Flounder video everyone has been asking me for years,

for those that are interested in the flounder footage email me

I start my flounder fishing in October much farther from the passes. The levee between Dollar Point and the Moses Gate is a much better shoreline to wade for flounder before November than Seawolf and you'll be one of maybe 3 or 4 people wading it if that, you'll have plenty of places to park free of hassles of a long walk or paying a fee and the only downside is the rip-rap you have to traverse to get in the water. Smaller flounder tend to be near the rip rap, bigger ones out deeper. Bonus fish are occasional fat trout that will be out 50-80 yards under visible bait, so take something a fall trout would eat.

thanks all for the tips.

I've not waded the dollar point/moses lake area either. I have walked in from the rocks on the north jetty into the bolivar pocket. Is the entry to that area similar?

I'll survey maps for the dollar point area.

I haven't walked the north jetty rocks in 35 years, so I'm going off of shaky memory; I would say that distance over rocks is shallower and shorter. At the Moses levee, there are about 10 yards of rocks. As a youngster, I would dang near skip my way down them. As I near 60, I have to be careful. As you get closer to Moses gate, the rocks taper down and it is a much shorter distance

Almost 60 myself. I hurt myself waking up in the morning so entry should be interesting.

I'll try to find so time soon when the wind/tide and moon seem decent.

Thanks again to all!

I'd say it's not near as bad as getting off the jetty or something like that. it's a huge levee, and some areas don't have rocks, but like reed said you'll probably want to fish around the rocks... the boulders are about 18" 24" ish, but not in all areas.

get a good look on Google earth and plan out where you want to go.

I predict the Troutsupport flounder video will be a huge seller in high demand.
