We've been opening up things a bit offering new adventures to clients including some crazy big water exploits and it's been a lot of fun doing new things. Along with that, we've been simulataneously advancing the comfort and quality of operations with our new bait holding facility. Follow us onInstagram.
On the fishing side of things, wade fishing is outperforming boat fishing at present. Fish are piled up on shorelines and shallow sandy areas from South SAB to POC. In this area, catching those fish from the boat is very difficult, let's just say impossible. That's putting our guests on foot and staying cool while catching some solid fish. Boat fishing is a little more sputtery but still producing with unpredictability and is dependent on turbidity and wind levels. 8,100 folks follow us on Facebook.
Tides took a big dump over night and that can plague shorelines so we'll see what the returns look like this afternoon with guests from San Antonio and as far away as Waxahachie...my home town.
Capt. Chris Cady is working over the back country by airboat this morning and we don't have a good report on that at the moment.
Bull Reds & big schools of Jacks with the occassional King Fish and Sharks are being encountered on our big water trips with big ripping tides coming in early. That has made for some sore arms and backs of late but lots of great memories and big smiles.
We've got lots and lots of great fishin ahead of us. So if you're planning a trip, get started HERE.

Flounder Gigging & Night Vision Hunts
At Castaway Lodge, we own the night whether it's spot and stalk varmints and Hogs during grain season or working blinds over baited locations on private land to stalking the shallow Flats flounder gigging by boat or wading. These trips are a great add-on to any fishing Adventure and we'd love to have you join us!
Alligator Hunts, Early Teal/Dove, Grain Season Spot N Stalk Hog
September is just one of those special months for us on the coast as we transition into Fall. We are the largest wild alligator hunting outfit in the State of Texas and we welcome you to pursuing your trophy in their natural environs. Tag on an Early Teal, Dove and make it a Cast N Blast or climb aboard our high racks for a South Texas Safari using our late gen Night Vision and Thermal optics. Alligator Season starts on 09/10 and runs through 09/30. This year, South Zone Dove will open on 09/14 and the 14th will be the opening date from now on until the legistlature changes it.
