Gator Season Wrap Up, Redfish & Black Drum Action Wide Open

The best Texas coastal duck hunting can be found here along the heart of the Central Flyway on the Texas mid-coast. We founded Coastal Waterfowl in 1993 showcasing our Big 5 including Pintail, Wigeon, Gadwall, Redheads & all North American species of Teal. We've stayed true to the best of the traditions of waterfowler's of yesterday focusing on effortless logistics highlighting our amazing American Airboats; uncrowded blinds; no mixicing of parties "ever"; and working the birds in tight over the decoys with calling excellence. If you didn't think an outfitter still existed like this today, then you haven't been here for a visit.

Fishing Report - Trout take a back seat while Redfish steal the show!

Big winds and turbid water have put us on the flats and in the back lakes on enormous tides here lately. Water all the way up in the parking lot in many cases and that's got the fish pushed back into areas typically unaccessible. This month is dominated by large groups of Corporate guests entertaining clients and appreciating their customers. The schedule is tight and our guides have been taking names on the water with heavy boxes of Redfish and now the Black Drum are showing up as well. With very few wade fishermen of late, boat fishing has dominated the scene and that's had Trout hard to come by. Wade fishing is the best approach for Trout right now until winds settle and the bays clean up a bit. Big winds have been a constant theme all Summer with very few days of mild conditions exposing mid-bay structure. Sometimes I feel like Mother Nature is throwing a blanket of protection over these fish in these conditions. She will let her guard down sooner or later. When she does, we look forward to making some amazing memories with the spotted beauties.
