Freeport Fishing (July 26-28)

I made a couple trips to Freeport this past weekend with a few friends to look for some redfish. For a guy that has the entire summer off, I have not fished all that much. My wife and daughter were out of town for the weekend so I decided to make a few trips. The SW winds had been blowing pretty hard for a few days and had caused a lot of water to drain out of the bays and marshes. It also made moving around pretty difficult. We found the birds working each day and were able to pull a few fish from all of the pods but they were hard to keep up with because of the strong winds. We found some really nice reds in one marsh that were in super skinny water but they were not interested in eating ANYTHING. I threw everything in the tackle box for hours at visible fish and never could get a bite. Every fish would just keep moving as if none of the lures were there or they would blowout for about 10 yards and resume cruising. In the first clip in the video above you can see my lure being pulled across the fish’s back without even moving.  We did manager a few fish here and there and had a lot of fun.  LSKS is a little over 2 weeks away. I hope they are hungry by then.

  1. How common is it to see Redfish in this shallow of water? I’ve never seen anything like this in the Freeport area. Nice video!

    • Not really uncommon. I actually try to plan most of my trips around low tides to find them this way. This was a bit too the extreme since the water was only about 4 inches deep but redfish in 6-8 inches of water is nothing out of the ordinary.
