My 1st Day Trout Fishing In Texas (Results & Lessons Learned)
Moving to a brand new spot and having to learn a new fishery can be both exciting and a little scary.
But luckily for us, we get to watch Salt Strong Fishing Coach Wyatt on this exact journey!
He just moved to Texas from North Carolina the day before this podcast was recorded and we discussed his first-ever fishing trip.
He went out wade fishing for trout and redfish and actually had a really successful day, even though he had never wet a line in Texas before.
So how did he do it?
And how can you learn new areas quickly, too?
That’s exactly what we’re going to talk about in this podcast.
Here’s a little preview of what we covered:
- How he fished the same type of spot in Texas and North Carolina (even though it looked different)
- What types of areas to look for when wade fishing
- Which lures work for redfish and trout in both Texas and North Carolina
- Why fishing in new areas is more similar than it is different (and what those similarities and differences are)
- And much more

Here’s a timestamped table of contents from my conversation with Wyatt about him fishing in Texas for the very first time:
0:29 – How Wyatt became a Salt Strong Fishing Coach (even though he started out living in Tennessee)
3:22 – What the 3 Bs are (and how Wyatt used them to catch fish)
5:04 – How he planned out his first Texas fishing trip and what he looked for
7:24 – His favorite way to view online satellite maps to plan his trips
8:51 – What to look for when planning your trip
12:41 – How to find launch sites for kayak fishing
14:35 – How to read the tides and wind to catch more fish
19:39 – What lures Wyatt used
22:48 – How to rig lures when wading grass flats
24:02 – How deep to fish when wading in the winter
28:15 – Wyatt’s Texas Trout Takeover plan
I’m pumped to watch Wyatt on this journey!
Already he’s proving one big thing that most anglers overlook: inshore fishing in different areas is more similar than it is different.
He used the same equipment and lures, and he even fished the same type of spot in Texas as he did just last week in North Carolina.
