Elevated tides and unseasonably warm has just made for awesome fishing as we approach January. Pre front action over mud and grass pockets once again bent the rods hard for guests as Capt. Donnie Heath lit them up using bait lit up the Redfish to 26". I sent out a newsletter the other day telling clients to throw the "seasonal playbook" out the window and that's a great idea. The big cold front has moved a little bit of water out of the bays but we're waiting to "get all excited" when we see it stay low for longer. Then we'll know it's a low water playbook time. "Like fresh cut grass", we just released a new fast paced action packed look at fishing/video. Check it out.
Capt. James Cunningham texted me first thing yesterday from the blinds to let me know that tidal surge and flooding had overtaken many of our "highest water" blinds with water up nearly to the benches. Pretty soon, we're going to have to build blinds with ladders if something doesn't change so look out "Duck Dynasty Boyz" we may have to copy cat your "sky Cabanas"...LOL
We've got just a bunch of duck hunting with fishing and Sandhill Crane hunting coming up and we're very blessed heading into the New Year. We hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Christmas break, Happy New Year!
Texas Helistop Fishing
With the exception of some minor detail work, we've pretty much moved the world around several times over it feels like . Our plans to dedicate a suitable portion of the grounds to a structured Helistop with Hover Taxi and Parking for up to three mid-sized Helicopters is complete. This will be a VFR footprint for now with IFR on the horizon. We are building momentum heading into the New Year with construction of the new Quarters facility now that all contouring is near completion. Shortly after duck season is over, we'll begin the Dining/Conference & Entertainment facility which will accommodate 40 guests. Stay tuned for more exciting news on the construction front by joining our newsletter HERE.
Come see us when you get a chance!
