Redfish Ripchord & A Trout Parachute

Castaway Lodge Seadrift Report
By Capt. Kris Kelley

A post frontal slick-off isn't my favorite fishing but the boys managed just enough wind to hit several out of the park for the 7 boat Jim K. crew. Everyone managed just about 1/2 or better limits of Trout along with a few Redfish to 30.5". Many of these first time fisherman met the demanding challenges posed by the fish, the conditions, and their guides. This is the 5th year we've been entertaining guests for Jim K. of Houston and we really enjoy getting his guys (that don't get to fish very often) in the middle of the action. All the Trout action was over shell in ESB and SAB.

On my boat, I was pleased to have Kristien Bueno on board. He's a 23 year old "tall lefty" working his way through the minor leagues. Drafted right out of high school, he's been working on his stuff with a number of organizations including the Mets and the Astros. With the recent ownership change at the Astros, it looks like he's heading possibly for St. Louis. We wish him the best and expect to see his name on the big screen soon.

We managed to pull out a tremendous box of Redfish despite very adverse conditions but the fish were on fire through mid-day and they seemed eager at times to smoke pole some drag. We ended up with 8 slot keepers to 27 and 7/8's along with 2 oversized to 30.5".

It looks like Monday is going to be more of the same, possibly piled higher and deeper. This evening we welcome longtime guests from Schlumberger that are entertaining clients.

We hope the week starts off well for everyone, please come see us when you get a chance.
