We're please to be the backdrop for client, vendor, and employee appreciation trips for The Nation's top home builders. We had a blast with the guests from Meritage Homes and man the fishing was just off the charts! From airboat fishing the back lakes, to wade fishing, to boat fishing, it's just been awesome! We've been ranging from upper bays and back lakes to the lower bays and back lakes of Matagorda Island and high water has yielded impressive results! We been playing the weather and strapping on the rain gear at times but haven't skipped a beat and you just can't beat the temperatures on the water! Fall is here big time and guests are having a ball.

Flounder Gigging

Working outside beaches on the hard cold front found guests and guides walking on Flounder during a day time wade fishing session with a gigging trip coming up for guests of Tom Green. Sure enough, winds layed down a bit and the water straightened up for an epic night spear fishing. Capt. Chris Cady produced limits of fish basing around 18" and climbing on up into the mid-20" range. What an awesome night for what has been one of tougher years flounder gigging.

Duck Season Approaches

We're seeing a lot of ducks showing up in back marsh locales and it looks like we're setting up for a great opener on November 3rd. 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
