Capt. Chris Cady lit up the fish airboating with Richard R. and guests while Capt. James Cunningham worked the fallouts with fast action on fish pushing the upper edge of the slot.

Airboat Redfishing, Seadrift
By Kris/Posted 2/1/2016
We're getting a grip on the calendar as we push "all in" into fishing now that duck season is closed. Between, you, me, the fish, and a fence post I think we're going to have to figure out where we are on the calendar "seasonality" wise.

High Octane Offering

It will be interesting to see what February holds? Is Winter finally going to kick in strong or are we going for an "Indian Spring". I'm betting on the latter and that's going to get the reels respooled immediately.

Sharpening Your Mental Game
By Kris/Posted 1/20/2016
When things get tough, we get busy and it's best never to pre-judge tomorrow's results based on today's hunting or fishing. Ha, i've seen days where the fishing is on a straight B-line downhill only to hit the water the next day and have them jumping in the boat.

Pintails & Mud Boils, Seadrift Riviera
By Kris/Posted 1/18/2016
We've been seeing a lot of fish prowling around after duck hunts but you'd think we're looking at a mirage with light action on the rods of late.

Ultimate Texas Staycation
By Kris/Posted 1/15/2016
5 STAR REVIEW: "Just left the lodge riding back to Dallas. I was invited by a buddy last minute and didn't have a clue of what to expect. The days are long but the hunts are just awesome! From nature's beauty to the great crew I'll be back for sure. Be ready to shoot some duck, catch some fish and night hog hunting! Great times!"

"Reds Running Deep, Tight Lip Trout, Toe Nail Draggers"
By Kris/Posted 1/11/2016
Slack winds and ultra mild "back to wearing shorts and flip flops" had the guns quieted a bit on early morning puddler shoots only to be replaced by the amber glow of hot barrels and flaming exhausts on the latest cold front. That also sent the fish deep. . . .

Thunderstruck, Set The Hook & Reload!
By Kris/Posted 1/8/2016
This yielded full limits for our guests from Pennsylvania while other guests arriving mid-day managed to take limits of Redheads on an afternoon shoot. We're just so excited to see so many returning faces from all over the Nation.

Trout to 28 Inch Barrel Busting
By Kris/Posted 1/2/2016
It looks like Mother Nature may finally be with us and not against us, so here we go. Gadwall, Pintail, Redheads and a light mix of Teal and other species have been dominating the straps. Water levels have pulled back enough to give us some breathing and comfort room but remain higher than we'd like.

Texas Helistop Fishing
By Kris/Posted 12/28/2015
Pre front action over mud and grass pockets once again bent the rods hard for guests as Capt. Donnie Heath lit them up using bait lit up the Redfish to 26". I sent out a newsletter the other day telling clients to throw the "seasonal playbook" out the window and that's a great idea. The big cold front has moved a little bit of water out of the bays but we're waiting to "get all excited"
