Fall flounder run in full swing on Sabine Lake

By Capt. Bill Watkins
 
We launched the boat in the predawn darkness in a fairly stiff, cold, damp, northeast wind. It was no later than 5:00 am and there were already four empty boat trailers in the parking lot at the Louisiana Causeway boat ramp. One of them, a fellow fishing guide’s rig, had already dripped dry. “He must have launched at midnight and slept in the boat”, I thought to myself. Even through the cold wind there were still a few really tough mosquitoes buzzing around and biting us on our unprotected faces and hands. I started the big outboard engine, turned on my running lights and headed down the Sabine Ship Channel toward what is known locally as “Little Cheniere”.
