November 5,2016 Could not ask for nicer weather, after a mild cold (cool) front. Got a late start, around 11:00, but did not seem to matter much. First cast produced a 27" Redfish on live shrimp and a popping cork. Most of the fish we caught were on live shrimp. The Mirror Dine lures are still getting results when thrown in a school of mullet or shad. There is no shortage of schools of bait fish, all over Sabine Lake. Did see a school of Reds chasing shrimp almost jumping on the bank. after about 50 yards, we lost them. Half the fish were caught close to the bank, half of the fish were in 5'-6' of water. Do not count on working birds this year, like in every past year. There should be hundreds of Gulls, all over chasing shrimp. Not this year, if you see a bird actually working, it is just plain luck. Schools of shrimp, just have not materialized this year. You should have a plan A, B, C, D, etc.. and not count on the annual Fall shrimp migration in Sabine Lake. There are plenty of Slot Redfish, and the Specks are mostly Legal Texas Size. If you work schools of Bait Fish, or Fish Slicks, you should end up with a box of fish. The weather is great, and so is the fishing.
