From friends and family groups to the Nation's top homebuilders; Houston's top Law Firms, you name it, we're "the destination" for some amazing fishing here this Fall. With wade fishing and boat fishing options in play, our guides zeroed in on the hot zones and absolutely hammered the fish. Wade fishing artificial lures has been on fire of late. Capt. Trey Ross smooth lit up the Redfish working mud/grass in super high water conditions on soft plastics with guests of David Weekley Homes on Saturday. Capt. James Cunnigham's guests from David Weekley Home opted to work bait while wade fishing and managed full Trout and Redfish limits. Boat fishing guests among the group had full limits of Redfish with some also having full limits of Black Drum as well. 4,000 folks follow us on Instagram

Dove Hunting

We finally managed to get a regular season Dove hunt on the books as a part of a Cast & Blast trip for guests of Elliot Smith. That's officially our FIRST regular season hunt and we still had water standing in the fields. Winds were elevated in the 20's ahead of the front and it was brutal on the shooting. Capt. Jake Huddleston said "they'd have had twice as many if the wind wasn't blowing". Like us on Facebook

Today's Approach - Wade Fishing Bait & Artificial's

Capt. Chris Cady, Capt. James Cunningham, and Capt. Terry Spoonemore got the nod for wade fishing with both bait and artificial lures this morning. Pretty raw and immediately brutal assault on the senses to say the least. You know "we're Texicans" and we could use a little ease into Wintery chill to get our blood thickened up a tad...LOL Capt. James Cunnigham shot me a picture of Capt. Chris Cady with a solid Trout, things look like they're going well for guests from California; Texas; and, Missouri. Check out our Photo Gallery

We've got lots and lots of great fishing ahead of us. So if you're planning a trip, get started HERE
