Fishing the Seadrift and Port O’Connor area
About halfway between the border of Texas and Louisiana and the border between Texas and Mexico lies a thriving, yet still relatively small, fishing community known as Seadrift and Port O’Connor, Texas. Legend has it that the town’s experience with saltwater bay fishing dates back as far as the 1500’s when tribes of Karankawa Indians inhabited much of the coastal region of Texas between Galveston Island and Corpus Christi Bay.
Regardless of it’s heritage, Seadrift and Port O’Connor continues to produce some of the best coastal fishing offered anywhere along the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. It’s natural habitat provides saltwater anglers with a happy median between the deeper waters of Galveston Bay to the east in the upper portion of the Texas coast, and that of the extreme shallows of the Lower Laguna Madre down in the lower end of the state’s coastline.
Shorelines of thick marsh grass give way to mile upon mile of submerged shoalgrass, widgeongrass, and turtlegrass, all of which serve several different purposes along this unique slice of coastline. The abundance of these grasses enable quick filtering of silt and sediments in the West Matagorda Bay, Espiritu Santo Bay, and San Antonio Bay systems following high winds or stormy conditions, and this rapid clearing effect often allows for some of the greenest trout water anywhere along our Texas coast.
Secluded, shallow water lakes lined with duck willow and soft mud produce a year-round safe-haven for crustaceans, baitfish, and the ever-popular speckled trout, redfish, and flounder, and they also provide a promising escape from nagging winds for coastal anglers. All of this, in combination with the attraction of the famous history of trophy trout hunting amidst the vast shell of San Antonio Bay, helps make the Seadrift and Port O’Connor area a coastal fishing destination unlike all the rest. Next time you’re wanting to experience some of the best bay fishing available anywhere, give the professionals at Bay Flats Lodge a call to arrange a fishing trip for you and your party that promises to meet your greatest expectations. Come and see for yourself all that the Seadrift and Port O’Connor area and Bay Flats Lodge have to offer. You’ll enjoy every bit of it!
