Winds have backed down to seasonal long-term norms and that has opened up more venues than Starbucks! From Offshore Near Shore, Surf, mid-bay reefs, etc. all reports are encouraging and indicative of strong fishing. A little play-time has resulted in some serious snapper slapping, Kings, and Ling along with Trout in the surf. Capt. James Cunningham blistered the fish over mid-bay shell with guests boat fishing taking full Trout limits along with Redfish limits. The wade fishing scene has been offering similar productivity with Capt. Chris Cady zerioing in on Sand/Grass fish mid-day.
Gigging trips have been very hit and miss of late with boat trips hampered by low water and wading gigging trips hampered by poor timing and a lack of fish. So it's been pretty dicey on predictability lately. Capt. Pat Lester thinks we're due for a break after the Full Moon cycle. I wish I had better news, but that's how it's looking. Next attempt will be Wednesday night so we'll see.

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!

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.
