FISHIN' CEDAR BAYOU IN THE SUMMERTIME

by Capt. Jeff Sims - Cedar Bayou Outfitters

Call to Reserve:  361-403-7510

   

Come on over to the Bayou, and I'm talking about the one and only..."Cedar Bayou".  When you fish this area of the Texas Coastal Bend, you can always expect to find the fish are biting! As the temperatures begin to rise beginning in May for the summer months, the amount of fishing action also rises and it continues to get better long past fall each year.  If you want to experience something new and exciting in coastal fishing, then Cedar Bayou is where it's at.

 I am Captain Jeff Sims and I have fished the Bayou for numerous years. The change I've seen since re-opening the Cedar Bayou has been not only good for the eco-systems of the northern bay systems but for the fishing enthusiast as well. As far as bay fishing goes, it's a 10!  Not only will we find plenty of fish in this area, but the influx of gulf water nourishes the under-water vegetation...and this in turn, give the bait fish a great habitat too.  It is a fact that when you find healthy vegetation where the bait fish can thrive, you find the fish - simple as that! 

For the next few months, when the wind is low and the water is green,

the fishing in the cut or the surf will be rockin'.

 

            

You can wade in the surf or the cut while your wife goes beach-combing or sunbathing and the kids are playing on the beach. I can accommodate the avid angler with his favorite artificial, or the novice with live bait. You'll be fishing for spotted sea trout, redfish, black drum and flounder. You never know what you're going to catch at the Bayou; you could end up with a variety of gulf species too like Spanish Mackerel and Jack Crevalle.

Recently while fishing the "Bayou" the bite was extremely good. Limiting out on nice, upper-sized trout with reds mixed in made for a great day of fishing for my customers.  When the weather, wind and wave conditions are good, you'll always find plenty of fish. We found plenty of them - trout and reds actually love the surf!  During a trip last week, there was a fish on with every cast. This made for quite the day of fishing, excitement and new fish tales for my customers.  Time and time again, Cedar Bayou produces the best catches for my customers and the beauty of the area is awesome!

I can accommodate multiple-boat trips for larger groups, family outings, business or corporate excursions, as well as families with young children or grown-ups who just want to experience the thrill of catching some really nice fish!  I welcome all levels - from beginners to advanced anglers.  My 2015 Fury, custom boat with a 250 Mercury ProXS motor provides a smooth, dry ride.  It has the space for up to 6 passengers (plus me, the captain).  I have 20 years experience as a captain and I'm First-Aid Certified.  When you and your family or friends step aboard my boat - rest assured that "Safety Always Comes First".

       

So, if you are up for a bay or Cedar Bayou "adventure", I'm your guide.  It's going to be a really good summer of fishing and fun here in the Coastal Bend.  Be sure to include a day of fishing when making your vacation plans this year!

Customizing your trip plans is what I do best.  You can also camp-out overnight at Cedar Bayou - start a bonfire and get connected again with family and friends! See the Milky Way and experience the beauty of Cedar Bayou at night!  Just tell me what your dream day would be and I'll do his best to make it happen!  Bring a Camera!!
