Gotta love it when all cyclinders are firing and expectations are being exceeded. That would be the case with a strategy shift of sorts and guides smelling a hot bite and blood in the water. The Wolf Pack for lack of a better term would describe the synchronicity in the shift and lots of team work making it happen daily for our guests myred in big winds and turbid waters.

Capt. James Cunningham, Capt. Chris Cady, and Capt. Jake Huddleston have been leading guests on wade fishing trips taking Trout limits and a smattering of Redfish working shorelines and sand/grass flats. Capt. Terry Spoonemore is pivoting into the wade fishing club as well but his boat fishing has been on point with limits of Redfish and a few Trout. Capt. Braden Proctor, Capt. Jeff Larson, Capt. Trent Martinez, Capt. Mike Martinez blew up the boat fishing attempts working schools of Redfish and Black Drum in the back lakes just whomping them and the big pulls and fast action made of lots of smiles. Solid limits of Trout poured into the lodge late week through Saturday with Sunday being a tad flat and taking extra effort to get it done. Capt. Terry managed to get his crew on a late bite pushing the time clock to 4:30 with guests digging in hard and working the fish over late.

We've got lots and lots of great fishing 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.

Waterfowl Hunting, Ducks, Geese & Cranes

Season dates for the 2018/19 Season will most likely start on 11/3 and the first split will run through 11/25. We will re-open on 12/8 and run through 1/27/19. We Winter a large portion of the Central Flyway and our Big 5 are Pintail, Wigeon, Gadwall, Redheads, and all species of Teal. November and the back half of December are excellent months for Cast & Blast combinations.
