Fall Fishing Trip

Looking to hit up Port O’Connor or Rockport to do some fall fishing in early October. What are the fall patterns for trout and reds? Do you work reefs or shorelines? Are they mainly feeding on shrimp or bait fish? Growing up, I’ve done most of my fishing in the late spring/summer, so that mostly the point of reference I’m working from.

You have plenty of time to get the Troutsupport videos. I recently purchased all of them and also the Reef Recon for your fishfinder. It’s a game changer and will provide you with more info than anyone can give you here.

I am usually there a lot in the fall, especially October through mid-December, and more so in the Seadrift area, but we fish POC as well. We have caught trout anywhere from deep guts off of mid-bay reefs to up on the mid-bays reefs, to topwater action on sand flats or over grassy potholes and outside of marsh drains. Reds can be anywhere that time of year and tend to follow the bait to wherever. But it all depends on what you find when you get there.

I would second the recommendation of the Troutsupport DVDs.

pay attention to Capt Nathan Beabout's fishing reports, he won't tell you where but will tell you the conditions to look for and what they are hitting on.

I have fished with him several times, great guy to spend time on the water with.

Last trip out I booked a second day for a "navigation trip"
4 hours on the water in my boat discussing areas, conditions and fishing tips... money VERY well spent

Keep in mind the wind can change direction on you very quickly in the fall. I’ve spent a week in POC every October for the last 35-40 years. You can easily be pinned to a north shoreline that time of year so be sure and familiarize yourself with those locations. It’s still my favorite time of year to fish POC. Last year we had good fish on a north shoreline with 25 mph winds, so don’t let the wind discourage you, just be careful.

Many of the fall fronts are weak.. wind change yes.. but get a good forecast and know if the wind is going to be above 18 from the North or NW for sure and plan your trip so you have safe routes back to the ramp if a front does come in (if one is expected)... otherwise, the fall is a great time to fish with reduced crowds on the water.

In fact the traffic on the bays have really reduced since dove season hit
