Port Arthur’s Sabine Lake and Beaumont’s natural beauty will be featured in a travel booth at the 40th annual Houston Fishing Show at the George R. Brown center in Houston, Feb. 25-March 1, 2015.
Speaker Adam Jaynes will open the show Wednesday with Fishing Lake Sabine for Monster Trout. Mike Cacciotti has a Thursday seminar called Fishing Sabine Lake.
We want to lure you into a Texas fishing vacation, beach time, and enjoying our Jefferson County area on the upper Texas coast as much as we do. Ask us about renovations to Pleasure Island Marina and bird watching at Sabine Woods.
Here’s what Chester Moore, editor-in-chief for Texas Fish & Game, and Port Arthur News outdoors writer, has to say about our area:
* Sabine Lake is home to the state’s strongest flounder population and is home to the state record fish, a 13-pounder since 1976 when Herbert Endicott of Groves caught a truly massive fish.
*The Sabine area produced the state record redfish.
*Sabine Lake has a strong speckled trout population and is considered by many to be the top spot for trout on the Gulf Coast for the last two years.
*Pleasure Island provides many miles of bank fishing opportunities where anglers can catch speckled trout, flounder, redfish, black drum, sheepshead and alligator garfish.
*The fishing pressure on Sabine is much lower than that of the Galveston Bay complex.
