Fish Sabine Lake with Captain Bill Watkins for an exciting fishing adventure!

If you are looking for some of the best fishing on the Gulf Coast, Sabine Lake is definitely the place to fish!

We are blessed with abundant populations of speckled trout, red fish, and flounder as well as many other salt water and fresh water species. Our area is not as crowded as a lot of other Texas bays, and has not had nearly as much fishing pressure. There is an abundance of wild life to see and close encounters with critters are common place. All of this in close proximity to the cities of Beaumont, Orange, and Port Arthur, Texas.

Captain Bill Watkins is a native of the Sabine Lake area and has fished in the area for 40 years. He has fished for just about every species of fish that is available in Southeast Texas. Capt. Watkins's experience as a Full-time Sabine Lake guide assures his customers a fun filled, exciting fishing adventure! Capt. Watkins is a Coast Guard licensed guide. Captain Watkins is licenced to fish in both Louisiana & Texas.

Two recent catches made on MirrOlure soft plastics.

All of our fishing is done with lures. Twelve years ago I retired my cast net and quit worrying about live bait. Instead of my catch rate dropping it actually increased. Trout, red fish, and flounder can be caught on lures 365 days per year. If you are tired of waiting in line at the bait camps to purchase expensive live shrimp, croakers, etc. come spend a day in the boat with me and learn how to use my simple system to catch fish. When we meet at the launching ramp at dawn the "bait" is already in the boat. The majority of our lure fishing is done with soft plastics although we do use top water and other hard plastics as well when needed. Thus the mission becomes finding and catching fish not chasing live bait.
