October 11,2015 Topwater Bite back on, lost my favorite Skitterwalk. Lost it after landing more Trout and Redfish. Best bite was early, in about 2'-3' over mud and shell. But managed to keep the Topwater Action going almost till noon. Did catch a couple of Specks on Gulp 4" white shrimp, and on live shrimp, but most fish were caught on Topwater Lures. Lost my favorite Bone color Skitterwalk (all worn and scratched up by years of torment) by lifting a Speck up out of the water without a net, the line just broke with the Speck all hooked up. From now on I will use the net on any lure I want to keep.What another beautiful Fall day on the water, light winds, and the water was in pretty good shape. Shrimp jumping out of the water almost everywhere we went. Balls of Shad, and huge schools of mullet are visible when the winds lighten up. Birds were pretty active from early in the morning to late in the day. One Redfish swallowed a Skitterwalk, and a big Flounder sucked a Gulp Shrimp so far down, we just cut the hook and retrieved it at the end of the day .Lost a Pink & Silver Skitterwalk too. Had a great day on the water and ended up with a Texas Slam + a Speckled Trout Limit. Still having trouble posting pictures, so you may have to see my new website @

Are you fishing Sabine lake?
All fishermen are legends in their own minds! Ranger Boats, Yamaha Outboards, Humminbird Electronics,Motor guide, and all the tackle in the world.
