Seadrift Guides, Primetime Fishing Focus

Located in Seadrift, our fishing guides target Trout and Redfish over various shallow bays and back lake estuarties. Options and approaches include wade fishing, airboat fishing, boat and drift fishing, flyfishing, and kayak fishing. After dark, we offer a number of great trips including night wades with artificial and live bait; lighted boat fishing; flounder gigging; and Night Vision hog hunts. Catch us on Facebook

Fishing Report

The biggest factor in successful fishing of late has been water levels. We've had a water dump which caught us by surprise and the ultra low tides took everyone off solid locations and put us on the hunt. That's always fun working the pattern change. Other than the occassional flat spot, both size and numbers have been good on Redfish. Capt. Chris Cady has been doing some great work on airboat trips with Capt. James Cunningham; Capt. Braden Proctor; Capt. Kolten Braun and Capt. Trey Ross working the flats. When it comes to Trout, drifting artificial has been producing in a brief window of mild winds only to be shut down as winds ramp up ahead of a weather change. Wade fishing artificial has been the real ticket for Capt. Trey Ross taking names on light tackle working mud/grass for both Trout and Redfish. The topwater bite has been a go to switching to soft plastics when things slow up a bit. Follow us on Instagram

No Bananas On A Boat

Quickest way to rattle a fishing guide is drag some bananas on the boat with you. The negativity surrounding that "lore" is alive and well among professionals on the water today. Check out our Photo Gallery

We've got lots and lots of great fishing ahead of us and plenty of memories to make out there with the best guides; friends and family; co-workers and clients. So if you're planning a trip, get started [HERE}(
