The September teal season has been great for a lot of hunters. Best hunts are on

Fishing on Sabine Lake and at the jetties is good for trout and reds, with more bull reds showing up each day along the rocks and in the surf. Both trout and reds are good under the birds on the lake. Trout are on the small side, but if you fish long enough, you’ll box enough to make it worth your time. Reds are best on the upper end of the lake under small groups of birds feeding on shad pushed to the surface by reds. Best lures for catching the reds are glow/chartreuse paddle tail jigs on 1/8-ounce heads.
