Bay Flats Lodge on San Antonio Bay

July 26, 2017

 

 

Capt. Chris Martin

The lack of a lot of hard wind these past few days has made things seem somewhat warmer than they really are, except for the fishing, or course!  Bay Flats customers continue to enjoy all that our San Antonio Bay fishery has to offer on a daily basis, whether its speckled trout, redfish, or even flounder.  The guides have been fortunate in finding all kinds of fish on an almost daily basis, with some of those being really nice fish.  Trout over 25-inches, and redfish over 28-inches have all been seen since the weekend, as things around here seem to only continue to get better.

 

For the trout, locating the bite early has been key, and then being able to stick with it as the morning progresses has meant the difference between being able to recognize a limit, or going home short-handed for the day.  If you can get on them quickly first thing in the morning, then you stand a good chance of recognizing your daily limit early, but if you take your time getting out there and don’t worry about being in your first fishing spot of the day just before the sun rises above the horizon, then chances are great you may not see your limit that day.  It’s just that simple.  If you can catch them early in the shallows, then follow them out to deeper water when the sun rises into the sky, you’ll be successful.  Put simply, that’s all there is too it!  Give it a try!

 

The redfish bite, although fairly good right now, can sometimes be tricky if you don’t happen upon a group of them when you get into a good bite.  A lot of the recent reds have come from the shallows throughout the course of the day, but in places where there is plenty of bait.  At other times, however, some of these fish have been found in deeper guts and troughs on the outside portion of small bayous, or drains, that empty water out of the back lake areas and into the main bay system.  The majority of the reds have been located in these drains in numbers, especially at times of a falling tide when these water passages become a highway for a smorgasbord of marine hors d’oeuvres – everything from microscopic organisms and small crustaceans to some of the larger varieties of baitfish like mullet.  Some of these areas even gave up a couple flounder for this week’s guests, which was just icing on the cake.  Until next week, have fun out there, and don’t catch ’em all!

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.

Bay Flats Lodge on San Antonio Bay

July 23, 2017

 

 

Capt. Chris Martin

Even at the risk of sounding like a broken record, anyone who has been fishing around here lately will tell you that the fishing has simply been phenomenal, and the few days since our last report have been no exception. Anglers have certainly gotten their money’s worth when it comes to the fish – speckled trout, redfish, flounder, black drum – you name it, they’re catching it! The wind and weather conditions have more than cooperated in recent days with those wishing to try their luck in open-water scenarios with mid-bay oyster reefs, as the wind has allowed anglers to get atop just about any one of the San Antonio Bay reefs this entire week. It’s been a luxury anglers don’t always have this time of the year, as July winds typically tend to not allow access.

 

As talked about previously, a majority of the day’s catch is routinely being recognized during the initial few hours of the days, especially on those mornings with little to no cloud cover whatsoever. This is because the fish are often found each morning staged in somewhat shallow waters that have been allowed to cool during the nighttime hours due to the absence of direct sunshine. As the sky lightens in the morning, and the sun begins to peak above the horizon, the fish remain comfy until the sun’s rays begin hitting the surface of the shallow water. Once this happens, the fish instinctively realize they will need to transition to a bit deeper water if they are to maintain comfortable surroundings. This is also the reason why anglers sometimes find that the bite suddenly turns “off” shortly after the beginning of the day each morning, or so it appears! In reality, however, the fish have simply moved to a little deeper water in many instances, and can often be rediscovered in the immediate vicinity without too much effort. It might take a little bit of your time to “relocate” the morning bite, but most anglers in the know will probably all agree that it can certainly be time well spent.

 

Other popular areas producing rather well right now, especially for those in search of a powerful redfish bite, have been windward shorelines in many of the area back lakes. But folks aren’t having to venture too far into the back country for these fish, as a lot of really nice reds (and trout, and even flounder) have been taken this week in many very accessible places situated directly adjacent to the main bay system – places like Pringle Lake, South Pass Lake, Long Lake, Pats Bay, Panther Lake, and even in Shoalwater Bay that’s on the opposite side of the bay. The majority of the week’s catches in these places have come out of water that’s often no more than one-to-three feet in depth (max.). And even though it may not seem like it makes a lot of sense, a small percentage of these fish are even being taken during the heat of the day when the sun is heading to its highest point in the sky. And although not real common, these late-morning and early-afternoon encounters are sometimes just what it takes in order to finish out the day’s bag limit for those who may not have been fortunate enough to relocated the early morning bite after the fish moved to more comfortable surroundings earlier in the day. It’s just another blessing in disguise! Until we talk again, have fun out there, and be safe!

 

Capt. Stephen Boriskie

What a pleasure it was Friday morning to have such nice, gracious, smart, and TALENTED kids, or more accurately, anglers! Tim brought the kids 9 yr-old Gracie, and 7 yr-old Reagan (like Ronald said he) to Bay Flats Lodge for some saltwater action, and boy did he get that right.  Solid fish and limits for all with firsts all over – first trout, first keeper etc.  It was a great day, and hopefully we’ll see these guys again soon.

Bay Flats Lodge on San Antonio Bay

July 19, 2017

 

 

Capt. Chris Martin

The summertime temperature isn’t the only thing heating up around here – the fishing has been off the charts! A lot of the bay water temps are now reaching into the 90’s, and the redfish are coming out to play in full force. A lot of them are being found in shallow water wherever bait is plentiful. Water clarity in the back lakes is pristine, which often makes it easier for anglers to spot the bait, and sometimes the fish, but don’t think you need the clearest water in the world for either. Some of this week’s reds came out of muddy, sandy, wind-blown water not more than a foot or two deep, where only an occasional jumping mullet was observed. A lot of these dirty-water fish, however, didn’t seem too interested in any hardware that was offered, and instead opted for a full serving of live bait. Go figure – we’ll probably never know exactly what goes on in the mind of a redfish, I guess!

 

Our Bay Flats guests continue to enjoy early morning trout action atop shell, sand, grassy potholes, or any combination thereof. The trout bite continues to be regular at this point in the summer, and if things don’t change too drastically going forward, we may be able to have fun with the trout for quite a while. The key to the trout success lately has been to be able to locate them early in cool water, then be able move with them as they move to even cooler surroundings (usually deeper water). A majority of this week’s trout were taken during the first two hours of daylight, so anglers should continue to make it a point to get out on the water just as early as possible each day in order to take advantage of these good times.

 

Some say the amount of rainfall we have received the past 18-24 months is the reason our fishing is so good right now. Granted, a certain amount of freshwater doesn’t only help our neighboring estuaries, it is a requirement for the natural establishment and maintenance of a healthy ecosystem, and all the wildlife and marine life that populates it. But even with all the rainy days that helped put an end to our last statewide drought, other factors have also contributed to the good fishing we’re now experiencing.

 

The long fight that took place for years and years in order to get a local natural pass to the Gulf, known as Cedar Bayou, reopened certainly seems to have helped the state of today’s fishing along our portion of the Texas coast. Before it finally silted-in many years ago, Cedar Bayou provided bay systems on both sides of Mesquite Bay with a natural flow of saltwater directly from the Gulf, which in turn helped to feed an entire eco system of its own, from tiny crustaceans all the way up to a number of different kinds of birds and other larger wildlife. The recent re-opening of Cedar Bayou has definitely been a contributing factor to the nice fish we now catch on a regular basis.

 

And, of course, let’s not forget the five-trout limit that was imposed first down south in the Lower Laguna Madre in 2007, and later along our mid-coast region in 2014. There were a lot of reasons behind the bag limit reductions, but above all else “it was seen as a proactive measure to maintain a valuable resource”. And from what we’re seeing today with regard to trout catches, many would have to agree that this effort has certainly helped us maintain some fine fishing. We’re fortunate we have so many good things working in our favor! Have fun out there, and be safe!

Partly cloudy skies. A stray shower or thunderstorm is possible. High around 90F. Winds S at 10 to 20 mph.

Saturday Night         10 % Precip. / 0.0 in

Partly cloudy. Low near 80F. Winds S at 10 to 20 mph.

Synopsis:

A weak to moderate onshore flow along with isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms can be expected early Thursday and Friday mornings. The weak to moderate onshore flow on Friday will become and remain more moderate by the end of the weekend into early next week, as a trough of low pressure remains over West Texas and high pressure remains situated over the Northeastern Gulf of Mexico. Conditions may flirt with Small Craft Advisory levels at times late this weekend and early next week. Seas may gradually build over the weekend in response to the stronger winds. Shower possibilities will diminish by the weekend as the waters remain east of an approaching upper level trough, with drier air also in place.

Coastal Water Temperature:

Rockport              91.0 degrees

Seadrift                91.0 degrees

Port Aransas       89.1 degrees

Bay Flats Lodge on San Antonio Bay

July 12, 2017

 

 

Capt. Chris Martin

So far this week we have been extremely fortunate with lower than normal wind speeds and with conditions that just couldn’t be much better for the middle of summertime. Granted, it is hot out there, but when you’re busy catching trout the way some of our Bay Flats Lodge guests have been doing the past few days, nothing else seems to matter very much! Shell pads and reefs are continuing to produce numbers of trout for those fishing with live bait out of the boat. If you like to toss live shrimp and live croaker, and you’re able to keep the gulls off of the end of your line, then you shouldn’t have much trouble at all recognizing your own early morning rewards whenever you’re able to get out on the water this week.

 

The redfish bite seems to have been a bit sporadic lately, with a couple of parties getting into them a bit one day, then nothing the next, then a few the next day, and so on. However, the reds that have been caught this week have, for the most part, been extremely nice fish. Live bait anglers fishing out of the boat, as well as though wade fishing with croaker, have seen a couple bruisers. The couple of wading parties that threw artificials this week were also able to rustle up a couple of bronze beauties before getting back in the boat. At the end of the day, I guess it hasn’t been an altogether bad week with regards to catching redfish. Keep up the good work everybody!

 

With the exception of the possibility for a stray thunderstorm here and there, weather conditions the next few days should continue to hold fairly steady for coastal anglers wishing to take advantage of the San Antonio Bay and Port O’Connor area. We’re now done with July’s full moon phase, and there will be a rising tide each morning that is expected to peak around the noon hour each day. If you follow weather, wind, and water patterns like a lot of avid saltwater anglers do, you have to know that the next part of this week shows relatively good promise. If only we had a crystal ball! Take care until we talk again – have fun, be safe, and be sure to look out for the other guy!

 

Capt. Stephen Boriskie

Sunday was a super day here at Bay Flats Lodge as I had a couple from the Dallas area who were down for some fantastic fishing, food and lodging.  The morning went much like the day before, but today’s catch of their ten trout limit came even faster than the past few days.  We spent the rest of the day scouring the bay for redfish and enjoying the birds and natural beauty of our Texas mid-coast.  We ended up with one slot-redfish in the box, and we released a dozen or more really nice keeper size trout. Every reef we visited, and every shoreline or gut that we tried our luck in, produced speckled trout in the 17-inch range. Sunday just turned out being one of those memorable days where it all went well.

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.

A weak southerly wind will develop Saturday and Sunday.
