Our Airboat Redfish Guides would love to introduce you to the exciting world of airboat Redfish fishing. Hop in the airboat and let's get into the backcountry with the best Airboat Redfish Guides on the coast! If you like a big fight, Airboat Fishing Guides put this fish in six inches of water and HANG ON!
Getting wet is an approach favored by avid Texas Saltwater anglers. We offer wade fishing trips for our guests that "prefer" to wade fish. There are days when this is a tactical advantage due to wind and weather. Whether using live bait or artificial lures, wade fishing the reefs, shorelines, and back lakes is sure to get you close to the fish.
Our most popular hunting trips frequently involve a morning or afternoon of bay fishing for Trout and Redfish. These combination trips offer the best of the Texas Mid-Coast and make for memories of a lifetime. We offer cast and blast combinations trips including a morning duck hunt followed by an action package afternoon fishing trip.
September finds us in hot wing shooting for early Teal then hitting the water mid-morning for fishing. On Dove hunts, we always fish the mornings then come back to the lodge and relax and retool for afternoon hunts. During the regular waterfowl season starting around the first of November, we typically hunt the mornings then come back to the lodge for a hearty lunch and retool for afternoon fishing adventures.
Night Vision hog hunts are a ton of fun, conducted at night over baited locations with professional blinds or spot and stalk during the September grain season. We shoot the latest generation of Night Vision using AR-15's in heavier calibers. We can add night activities like hog hunting or flounder gigging to any trip package.
We are among the most sought after destinations for Producers in the Outdoor TV show market. The Lodge and our activities afield and on the water is the perfect back drop and content for "Outdoor" related television media personalities and genres.
We look forward to sharing our knowledge of a given area while teaching the skills needed for a successful wade fishing trip dedicated to deceiving fish with artificial baits. Tips and tactics include day to day reads on presentation; cadence; color selection and water reads; and, the retrieves that will produce results in your home waters. For us, that's what guiding is all about, the ability to teach others about our passion and doing what we love. From watching customers fight their personal best to understanding the presentation technique for that day are a large part of the experience. Anglers dedicated to fishing with artificial lures know it’s not always about filling the fish box, but about passing on the skills to do so while making memories of a lifetime.
We ask our clients to bring an ice chest with drinks and snacks (personalized items that we cannot anticipate). If you have a favorite rod and reel, feel free to bring it. We provide all necessary tackle.
We call it "walking" others call it "wade gigging", regardless, gigging is absolutely lethal on foot. Our guides will be right by your side as they show you how to work hard bottom shorelines in less than knee deep water using our custom LED gigs. This is a really neat trip and we recommend bringing some wading booties or old tennis shoes for the trip, "nothing to it, just do it" so come have some fun!
