The Sabine Jetties is made up of two 3-mile granite structures protecting the terminus of the Sabine Neches ship channel in the Gulf. These jetties serve as artificial reefs that create a productive habitat for an astounding variety of marine life including: speckled trout, redfish, Spanish mackerel, jack crevalle, black drum, sheeps head, gaftop, sharks, rays, flounder, gulf trout, croacker, and ling and kingfish, on occasion.

How and Where:

The three most productive ways of jetty fishing include:

  1. Walking the Rocks
  2. Anchoring by the jetties
  3. Drifting along the granite structures

The easiest access to the jetties is the 4 Pier Boat Launch in Sabine Pass and the Walter Umphrey State Park boat launch on the south end of Pleasure Island.
