Trout & Redfish

Advance and retreat would be the theme here mid-August as unsettled winds and weather find us making adjustments day to day. Wade fishing continues strong and the best approach when winds are less than favorable for boat fishing. Pulling off big water on boat fishing trips and concentrating on schools of back marsh redfish has been productive. Windward shorelines are working with our guides and keying in on mud boils and concentrations of fish over sand humps and mud swales. Capt. Chris Cady worked over some back marsh on Saturday with slow action early only to find the fish piled up over sand. Chris said "first presentation on these fish had all the rods bowed-up with fish on. Check out our Youtube Channel

We'll be making transitions heading into September toward more Airboat fishing along with cast & blast venues including early Teal, Dove, Alligator, and Safari style high rack "grain season" hog hunting with Night Vision and Thermal Optics. 4,000 sportsmen follow us on Instagram

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 legislature 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.
