The first week of duck season flew by with plenty of birds here on the Gulf Coast. The cold front mid-week moved a lot of water out of the bays temporarily making outside beaches and shorelines along Matagorda Island the place to be. Redheads are showing up in good numbers along with Pintail, Wigeon, Gadwall, Shoveler, and a few Teal. We have been managing limits to near limits and it looks like there is going to be plenty of food to keep the birds interested and frequenting a number of locations. On the inland side Capt. Jake has had great success inland with limits as well on puddle ducks and a few divers. We've got alot of geese down early, specklebellies along with more and more Snows are showing up. We've had a number of hunts taking limits of Specks along with a few Snows already.
Redfish action continues strong with Capt. Doug taking full limits for the Luke K. group Saturday. The boys enjoyed a near limit shoot on ducks with slick "blue-bird" conditions followed by strong action on Redfish and full limits to 26". Capt. James reported solid action on Trout wade fishing with artificial lures early in the week working windward shorelines in off color water.
Have a great week and come see us!
