November 19,2016 Wind Advisory, Small Craft warnings, 30+mph North Winds, Cold, water level dropped a couple of feet, Super Moon, so we probably should have all stayed home, but glad we did not. Got to Sabine Lake, probably the last person at the ramp Saturday morning. We were met with a flock of birds working, and Gwen caught a Flounder! Winds were 30mph+, made working birds a little difficult, so we opted for some fishing along the Louisiana Shoreline to duck out of the wind. It was a lot easier to fish, but not very productive. The further we would get pushed into the lake, the more we started catching fish.The more fish we caught, the less the wind mattered. We got blown all over Sabine Lake, catching mostly slot reds, mostly around 25". Some were over 30", I don't think we caught a Red under 20". For every Redfish we caught, I think we caught a Flounder. There were more throw back Flounders, but we ended up with almost as many Flounders as Redfish. Again, most everything we caught were in 6'-8' of water out in the wind, out in Sabine Lake. The water was in pretty good shape for clarity and color.

Live Shrimp worked the best, although we did catch a few on soft plastics. I did not expect limits of Flounder and Redfish, and a couple of Slams, but you never know, unless you go! People ask me when the best time to go fishing is. I tell them anytime you can go, that is the best time to go. Always be respectful of weather conditions, but if you are familiar with your surroundings, you can fish just about anytime. luckylindycharter.com
