Mid-Week Fun at Bay Flats Lodge

Bay Flats Lodge on San Antonio Bay

May 24, 2017

 

 

Capt. Chris Martin

Intermediate thunderstorms on Sunday afternoon and Monday delivered with them an enormous amount of rain – upwards of 5-6 inches in some areas. A few fish were located by those who took quick advantage of the short times between storms, but fishing was practically shutdown for about 24-hours prior to the approach of this week’s minor frontal system. After the rains moved on and the skies cleared, temperatures dropped once again to a comfy level and everyone was back out on the water enjoying rapid rewards, some of which came from within a very short distance from the lodge.

 

Tuesday’s fishing was back to normal, with quick trout limits for most everyone. Fish were discovered to be plentiful along shorelines as well as out in the middle of San Antonio Bay atop the oyster reefs. Right now is a prime time of the year for trout fishing over mid-bay oyster reefs whenever the wind lets you get out to them. A lot of people simply anchor at one end or the other of the reef and fish with live bait. And that’s not a bad way to go at all, but many prefer to wade the reefs with artificial baits. Early in the morning before the sun comes up has often been a fairly good bet for some really nice trout on top water baits during the summertime months. However, once the sun rises into the sky, you will more than likely notice that the bite on top turns “off” quite quickly at times. Not to fear, simply tie-on a plastic tail and start working it up and down the tapering sides and edges of the reef. You’ll find ‘em, especially if you happen to have a lot of bait activity in your immediate vicinity.

 

The back lakes out on Matagorda Island are currently still producing great numbers of beautiful redfish, as well as some really big trout on occasion. A lot of anglers are throwing live bait at them (shrimp and croaker) from the boat, but those who have taken the hunt to the fish by wading with lures in some of these back country lakes have done extremely well the past couple days. This should continue for a while, at least until water temperatures begin to climb substantially. You should also look for sandy shorelines to begin producing on a regular basis as we move into June. Potholes surrounded by grass, and areas with brief shell humps will often hold baitfish, so target these areas first in your search for a good bite. School is about to be over for a lot of people, and that means boat traffic on our bays is going to increase significantly. Think safety first, watch out for the other guy, and remember proper boating etiquette, especially in the case of wading anglers. Have fun, and we’ll talk again soon!

 

Capt. Stephen Boriskie

On Tuesday, my crew of four wanted SPOTS-N-DOTS quick with supposed impending rough weather (which didn’t happen, unless you consider a north wind at 15 rough), so we bounced around some nearby oyster reefs and I decided to try what worked Monday. With twenty trout by 9:00AM, we called it a day, and the boys got on the road early!

Plan Ahead For Next Year’s Deer Season…

Open marshlands and sandy swamps covered by grassy plants, and nearly impenetrable motts of trees and brush, are both natural environs that make for a great attraction to the deer, and Bay Flats Lodge hunters are able to take advantage of both. Being less than three hours from Houston, Austin, or San Antonio, our deer hunting property is located along the coastal bend region, providing time saving convenience to hunters. Gone are the days of having to drive into the depths and remoteness of south Texas, or out to the far reaches of some of the more secluded western regions of the state in order to enjoy a trophy hunt of a lifetime.  Hunting whitetails with Bay Flats Lodge means spending more time enjoying the finer things in life such as the pleasure of the hunt itself, the camaraderie of friends and family, and the truly finest accommodations and service offered anywhere along the Texas coast.

 

Our whitetail hunting area was developed locally several years ago, and the land and the wildlife have been managed closely ever since.  In that we hold exclusive outfitting privileges on this hunting area, and because it sits just moments away from our Lodge, we are able to provide our customers with a whitetail hunt second to none.  We invite you to experience Bay Flats Lodge, the premier hunting and fishing destination on the Texas coast for your next trophy-class whitetail deer hunt.

The Roller Coaster Ride at Bay Flats Lodge

Bay Flats Lodge on San Antonio Bay

May 21, 2017

 

 

Capt. Chris Martin

The weather reports say we’re probably going to receive some rain over the course of the next couple days, so things remain uncertain just yet as to how the fishing will turn out during the early part of the upcoming week. We might be limited to the amount of time we get to spend out on the water Monday and Tuesday, but Wednesday sounds very promising for a midweek turn into the later part of the week. With Texas weather, however, no one really ever knows exactly what will happen, so I guess we’ll just have to wait to see what the week holds in store for us.

 

Thursday and Friday of this past week exhibited, once again, the all too familiar roller coaster pattern we’ve recently become used to seeing – an aggressive bite one day, and slow and steady the next. Friday was just such a day. The wind was cranking, and even though conditions may not have been favorable, those who opted to stick it out for the long haul reaped the rewards. Granted, Friday’s bite was slow, but the trout that were located all appeared to be solid fish.

 

Thursday’s bite was altogether different, with trout limits not taking as long. Is there any reasoning behind this? Who’s to say? It could be due to any of a number of reasons probably, but never dismiss the natural bait situation. If you happen upon an area full of bait activity, your chances for catching some really nice fish are going to be much greater than if you hadn’t found the bait. Right now, our bay systems are full of bait, so one of the biggest challenges of late has been to be able to keep up with the baitfish as they tend to be relocated by high winds blowing out of different directions from day to day. If you can figure out that pattern, you’ll be on to something everyone else wants to know. So, keep up your efforts in that respect, and always hope for the best. Until next time, our congratulations go out to all those graduating seniors out there, high school and college, and good luck to you in what we hope is a very promising future. Remember to practice CPR, “Catch, Photo, and Release”, whenever possible on trophy Trout and Reds.

 

 

Capt. Stephen Boriskie

Thursday proved to be a steady day for catching trout, but we had to practice a lot of patience. The fish were solids though, and my crew enjoyed some quiet time while out of the busy office and on the water. Friday was the second day for my guests, and things turned out slightly better than Thursday, despite higher winds and increased boating traffic. One of my guys hung in there all day with a terrible back spasm, and toted in limits of speckled trout for family feasts when they get home. Thursday and Friday were two good days with these repeat customers who are always gentlemen when they visit us here at Bay Flats Lodge.

Conditional Catching at Bay Flats Lodge

Bay Flats Lodge on San Antonio Bay

May 17, 2017

 

 

Capt. Chris Martin

Winds over the course of the past few days have been off and on. On calm days, things have been really nice. On windy days, however, it has been an occasional struggle to get to where you want to go in order to fish. But, regardless of some rather extraordinary high winds at times, bay waters have managed to stay in fairly decent shape and have seemed to settle quite rapidly when the wind dies. The bays are undergoing a “greening effect”, and the water is simply becoming beautiful in color, especially in the middle of the day when the sun is high in the sky.

 

Some of the nicer trout being caught right now aren’t necessarily coming from places you might ordinarily expect, like over shell for example. A lot of the recent travels to mid-bay oyster reefs out in San Antonio Bay have produced good numbers of trout, but just not many with much size to them. Many of the bigger trout that have been experienced have come from anywhere there has been a good supply of baitfish, whether that’s shin-deep water over mud, or 3-5 feet of water over a sandy pothole surrounded by grass. Bait activity has been the ticket, so make sure you find the bait before spending a lot of your precious time out on the water chasing ghosts. The way things have been going around here lately is that if you can find the bait, you will typically find the trout, reds, and maybe even a big, fat, hungry flounder.

 

We’ve been very fortunate in the fact that the level of difficulty associated with catching fish this spring has been, at times, rather minimal. That’s not to say that the guides have not had to work for the catch, because there have been days that are much harder than others. But, that’s always the case with fishing. We’ve experienced difficulties with high winds, but have also had to battle times of slack winds, which is just as much of a challenge as that of high winds when it comes to “catching”.  We’ve also encountered a number of days with northerly winds, which also presents a much harder effort in order to produce positive catching results. Being able to rely on your experience as an angler and leaning on your knowledge can carry you a long way when fishing under such varying conditions at this time in the year. Until we talk again, remember you’re out there to relax and enjoy all that the great outdoors has to offer, so have fun and be careful!

 

 

Capt. Stephen Boriskie

Fishing continues to improve day by day in spite of higher winds and a decreasing moon.  On Monday, I was blessed to host a father and sons trip, which happens to be a repeat customer from 6 years ago. These guys lead busy lives between veterinarian work, college masters programs and finishing high school near the top of the class – definitely three gentlemen anyone would want to be associated with.  Monday, however, it was about family time and sharing a good trout bite.  As I hosted these guys I thought about the movie “A River Runs Through It”.  Monday after Mother’s Day there was no one but myself at the dock and it seemed eerie at first but comforting as well. I realized that I needed this time alone to prepare for a day of inspiration from three guys I won’t forget.  God bless all.

Mother’s Day Trout at Bay Flats Lodge

Bay Flats Lodge on San Antonio Bay

May 14, 2017

 

 

Capt. Chris Martin

Today’s fishing report is dedicated to all Moms everywhere, especially those who have been called to heaven. Happy Mother’s Day!

 

Strong winds continued to influence the guides in their decision-making process toward the end of the week, but after the winds finally calmed down, the bite was on. The trout bite, that is. That’s right, the wind settled down Friday evening and bay waters suddenly took on that ever-popular trout-green color we always like to see when we look out across the bay. Saturday morning rolled around, and conditions out on the water were absolutely perfect – light wind, beautiful water, and lots of hungry speckled trout!

 

The strongest bite on Saturday seemed to take place in the earliest part of the morning while the moon was still overhead. During that period, the bite was strong and rapid, as they trout seemed to hit just about anything you cared to throw at them. This feeding frenzy was rapidly curtailed as the moon finally set, and when the wind came to an abrupt halt. When that happened, the bite came to a halt, as well. The sun made things fairly warm the rest of the morning without much wind, but a slight breeze finally made its way across the stillness of the bay and the boats began picking up trout again. Everyone who stuck it out were glad they did so, as most everyone recognized trout limits as a result.

 

Wading anglers who were throwing artificials also found a strong bite Saturday morning just after entering the water, and they were only a few fish shy of their limit after their first wade session. They clinched their trout limit on their very next wade and spent the remainder of their day searching for redfish. It took a little time and some extra patience, but four beautifully bronzed brutes finally made their way onto the end of the line for what was a marvelous ending to a wonderful day of fishing out on San Antonio Bay. Until next time, remember to have fun, and be safe!

 

Capt. Stephen Boriskie

I ran a split-day on Saturday with a family from Austin hosting a Mother’s Day trip for their family.  If you could have seen the pace at which these two folks were pulling in the trout on our first stop of the day, you’d swear these fish wanted to go back to Austin with them. It was a sight to see, and a beautiful one at that! Limits of trout for my morning pair and a few bonus fish, too.

 

The results from the Saturday afternoon trip were the same as the morning trip – awesome conditions and limits of trout. It was also nice having the Mom of the group here for Mother’s Day while watching her catch trout on shrimp and on croaker. Way to go Lynn!

Plan Ahead For Next Year’s Deer Season…

Open marshlands and sandy swamps covered by grassy plants, and nearly impenetrable motts of trees and brush, are both natural environs that make for a great attraction to the deer, and Bay Flats Lodge hunters are able to take advantage of both. Being less than three hours from Houston, Austin, or San Antonio, our deer hunting property is located along the coastal bend region, providing time saving convenience to hunters. Gone are the days of having to drive into the depths and remoteness of south Texas, or out to the far reaches of some of the more secluded western regions of the state in order to enjoy a trophy hunt of a lifetime.  Hunting whitetails with Bay Flats Lodge means spending more time enjoying the finer things in life such as the pleasure of the hunt itself, the camaraderie of friends and family, and the truly finest accommodations and service offered anywhere along the Texas coast.

 

Our whitetail hunting area was developed locally several years ago, and the land and the wildlife have been managed closely ever since.  In that we hold exclusive outfitting privileges on this hunting area, and because it sits just moments away from our Lodge, we are able to provide our customers with a whitetail hunt second to none.  We invite you to experience Bay Flats Lodge, the premier hunting and fishing destination on the Texas coast for your next trophy-class whitetail deer hunt.
