Fishing on Sabine Lake is nothing but one big guessing game these days. The fish that are on one day have lockjaw the next. Right now it’s tough to pin down birds holding over trout and reds, and if you do, most of the specks feeding under the birds are “cigar” sized.

Deciding what to give to the outdoorsman that seems to have almost everything can be a trying decision at Christmastime. While they would appreciate receiving almost anything, why not give him or her something never to be forgotten?

October is the month for some exceptional bass fishing on lakes within a quick-hit run from Beaumont, or for that matter, Southeast Texas in general. With each passing cold front, water temperatures on lakes like Sam Rayburn and Toledo Bend drop into that magical zone that tells bass it’s time to chow down and fatten up for the lean winter months to come. The water temperature on both Rayburn and T-Bend is holding right at the 75 to 77 degree mark.
