Our lodge is a showcase of local Seadrift fishing and waterfowl hunting guides that have dedicated their lives to excellence on the water, sometimes at great personal cost relative to other occupations. It's all part of it and we really wouldn't have it any other way. We recognize when our guests come for a visit, beyond catching a bunch of fish or killing a bunch of ducks is the main objective which is making memories of a lifetime. That's serious business that we recognize is the true and least mentioned part of the job.
Fishing Report - Redfish Shining on Big Winds/Airboat Fishing Prime Time Continues
Capt. Justice Cunningham reported tough Trout fishing on a wade trip with guests but managed to stumble into hammer down Redfishing action taking full limits over mud/grass. Most all of the boat fishing has been targeting scattered Redfish over mud/grass and various shell locations. Hiding from the wind has been key as it has been blistering for longer than we'd care to mention. That cycle has broken over the weekend and Sunday's trips saw the first decline off of mid-20's and gusting. We're looking for a bounce on late season Trout over shell pads in big water that's clearing up. That remains to be seen. Capt. Chris Cady reported excellent action on the airboat trips working the extreme shallows on blown up tides associated with Imelda. We know the Houston area has bene under water and our hearts go out to all of the folks displaced up there. We, however, are dry as a bone in a mini-drought, burn ban is in effect.
