>Huge Turnaround in Seadrift Area

>Schools of Redfish in the Bays

>Area Lakes Have Solid Trout Action


Seadrift area has shown a huge turn around since the last issue came out, especially for catching Trout in the 8 to 9 pound class. Redfish action also heated up with huge schools of brute Reds near the Hynes, Mission and San Antonio Bay regions. The best bait of choice for these Reds is cut crab fished on the bottom. Top water lures in bone color have been responsible for solid Trout action in area lakes. Fishermen should see a huge push of water levels during the next two weeks
