Memorial Weekend 2010 offshore report

SATURDAY
Headed out of Bolvair Yatch basin saturday morning. Found clear water out about 15 miles with weed lines. Nothing on the weed but a few small sharks. Keep on going out to about 30 miles out. Water turned to an off green color once out, not a good color for what we wanted to do. First few stops it was a slow go, with a mixed bag of small fish and jack fish. Bait was thick everywhere. Started to get some snapper, few of them over ten pounds.
Alton with his first Red Snapper, over ten pounds, had to let it go.



Got tired of catch and release snapper fishing, and feeding the dolphin. So ran back inshore into clear water and found a large number of bull reds to pull hard to end the day. Also found some trout, largest being 25".
Justin with the largest trout of the day, and the first trout I have ever gaffed :P

Lot of birds at the rigs, this one crashed on the boat. He was worn smooth out. Picked him up off the deck and made him a home on the console. After some fresh water he started to get his second wind. The bugs on the boat were in trouble, he attacked and chased bugs around the boat for about two hours. Little bird had some mad skills and could catch most any bug or fly it saw. He stayed for the ride in to dock, and we gave him to a famiy that was there to take care of until he was ready to fly off.

Full moon had the fishing off, and water color was to green offshore for good sight fishing for lings.Talking to other fishermen at the dock they found good water 50+ miles out. We still caught a bunch of fish, and had a great time. End the day at the Crawfish Hole in winnie for the last crawfish of the year.

SUNDAY
Because of the slow fishing out of Galveston the day before, we headed out of Sabine on sunday. A storm was over the jetty early in the monring but moved to the west in time for us to make our way out. First stop was out about 15 miles, water was clear with weed. Once again no fish. So we ran further offshore about 35 miles out. Water was green, and bait was everywere. Tied off to a rig and made bait. Once we got the live bait out started to jig. Got a few moster spade fish, pompanos, and macs. Then the kings showed up, cut our jigs off. Picked up the live baits and the fight was on. A smaller bluewave that we had saw at the first stop showed up as kings were skying bait behind our boat. Another older Cobia shwed up and everyone was hooked up on kings.
We pikced up and started to hit the gas stands in the area. We found a lot more kings, and few ling started to show up. Ran into a few problems with large stingrays. They were picking up our live baits fast and staying in one spot. Hung one ray about 150lbs that put up one hell of a fight.
Justin hooked up with a large Ray.

After playing with kings and rays we had figured out how to find the lings. So move back to the large rig and started to tease ling up to the boat in order to get baits to them. Had a lot of smaller ling around the boat most of the time but the green water made them impossible to see. We were teasing the large ling up with sharks. The ling would chase the sharks around 4' to the boat head butting them tring to get the bait away from the shark. We teased up some 40-50lb ling, hooked a few of them and lost them. We screwed up big time on the ling, no one to blame but ourselves. Had them figured out by noon, but landed no keeper ling. Broke off and lost some large ling this trip.
One of the small ling that was around that would steal the bait before a larger one could get to it.


We hit the short rigs again on the way in to the jetty in clear water. Nothing was there, so we headed in. As we got to the jetty a black wall cloud was coming straight at us. Purt the hammer down and got the boat on the trailer as the lightening started to pop. Perfect timing on our part. Was a great day of fihing, lots and lots of catching. Great day on the water.
Justin with my little girl.

Sounds like a great day. I really like when we get the details of the trip with what worked and almost more importantly, what didn't work. Thanks for a great report and pictures. Greenies to you! By the way, had the same thing happen to us a couple of years ago with a bird landing on the boat and riding some 40 miles with us (with only one motor running and top speed of 8 kts).............wife had a blast keeping it busy with sunflower seeds and bugs!

Cool deal with the trout! Curious about how many miles offshore the trout will hangout?? Looks like a great weekend.

I do not know how far the trout will go, do know I have found them out of Sabine about 20 miles. Do not target them, but when they are thick they will hit most anything.
