Coastal fishing still windy, but trout are plentiful

Wade fishing the shoreline where mullet congregate was the key to success in a recent mid-Texas coastal fishing trip with Capt. Nathan Beabout.

Wind proved tough, but solid trout were pulled out of the water whenever the group found mullet hiding in grass.

“We found ourselves standing in the same spot for 15-20 minutes hooking up several times, and the bite was much more of a thump,” Beabout said.

Fish in the 19- to 23-inch range were caught using strawberry wine and watermelon Down South Lures. With water temperatures staying cool, a lot of fish are still being found in knee- to thigh-deep water.

“After this crazy late May weather systems pass through and our winds die down, I am confident our bite will resume a more normal pattern,” he said.
