Sabine River Texas & Louisiana

Recommended Posts

Fished with my father in law on the sabine from safe light until 11:30-12 this past Sunday. We launched in Orange and went to Phoenix lake which I had never fished. The water looked really good but was a solid 3 feet higher than when we went 3-4 weeks ago. I’ve never had this happen before but man was it fun. I love my Keitech swimbaits. Got them in a few different colors (bluegill flash, sexy Shad, and ayu) and decided to start the day with bluegill flash mostly for well.....the flash. The bass loved it. Was throwing them on an owner 4/0 weighted screw lock hook and just giving a slow steady retrieve with the occasional jerk. I caught multiples on all three colors with my biggest on the sexy Shad. Throwing parallel to any floating grass patches and when I could, parallel to the bank. Same went for any debris floating along. Another first for me, beat my father in law 16-4 and I landed all 4 keepers.

Awesome report!


With Lacassine closed I'll be heading over to the burnt out bridge.

Be careful at burnout with the water being so high. Last time we went, they had really let the launch get out of control. Serious potholes and just overall decay.
