Great weather and great fishing over the last week with full limits coming on Redfishing trips in the back marsh for Chris M. and guest along with Jerry B. and guests. Water was down and out early week and it was pretty mild, warming, and a lot of stretches of gin clear water. Anglers had just enough wind to get on them and stay on them. Size has been running 20 to 24" with larger fishing coming mid-morning.
Cast N Blast trips have managed better than half limits to full limits with afternoon fishing better for some than others. Chad H. and guest managed 1/2 limits of Trout working with me over mud/shell while the Brandon H. group had fits with upper bay Redfish with Capt. James. Capt. Jake hit it out of the park with the Barret G. party taking limits of Specklebellies; a dozen Snows; and 8 ducks including Mottled Ducks & Wigeon on a combo shoot Friday. Hunts over the weekend managed full to near limits of Puddlers with limits of Pintails; Gadwall; Wigeon & Teal with the cool front playing a definate roll in heavy straps.
With heavy weather starting to hammer the upper Midwest, we should be gaining more and more birds and we move toward Thanksgiving.
