PREMIER BAY FISHING

A FUN FISHING EXPERIENCE FOR EVERYONE

Grab your gear and the family and head out with our guides who deliver you to remote areas other boats can’t reach to see habitats few ever have the opportunity to enjoy. Perfect for novice or expert, and we can easily accommodate multiple boat parties.

COASTAL DUCK HUNTING

AN UNPARALLELLED WATERFOWL EXPERIENCE

You’ll be hunting in a leading staging area along the western edge of the Gulf of Mexico, where waterfowl travel up and down the coast each winter. This stretch of coastline is home to incredible numbers of native ducks, as well as migrating Gadwall, Widgeon, Pintail, Canvasback, Redhead and Teal.

WORLD-CLASS FLY FISHING

SIGHT FISHING FOR REDFISH DOESN'T GET BETTER THAN THIS

You’ll traverse the vast and extensive marshy backcountry of Matagorda Island while our guides push you silently along in a technical poling skiff, on the lookout for tailing redfish in clear shallow water.

LEGENDARY LODGING

THIS AIN'T YOUR GRANDPA'S FISHING CAMP

After a long day outside, you’ll lay your head down for a rest in luxury-hotel quality beds and spacious rooms that you’ll be dreaming about long after you’ve gone.

BAY-TO-TABLE DINING

FRESH IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT

Once you’ve spent the day landing a fish on the fly or hunting 13 species of birds, you’ll come back to chef-prepared bay shrimp, softshell crabs, oysters or your own catch of the day, grilled to perfection.

EXPLORE SAN ANTONIO BAY

YOU WON'T FIND THIS ANYWHERE ELSE ON THE TEXAS COAST

Bordered by more than 100,000 acres of protected national reserve, San Antonio Bay’s biodiversity delivers shorelines, wetlands and beaches rich in marine wildlife. At the south end of the bay lies Matagorda Island, offering coastal enthusiasts unmatched hunting and fishing opportunities.

A WARM WELCOME
FROM THE CAPTAIN

For the last 25 years, my wife Deb and I have been hosting anglers and hunters on our coastal property in Seadrift, Texas. Nothing makes us happier than sharing this incredible ecosystem with our guests.

We grew the lodge from humble beginnings to a 20,000 square foot seaside paradise. Today, we can host up to 56 people for action-packed days on the water, creating memories that will stay with you for the long haul. We don’t know what you’ll love more, landing a redfish or limiting out on ducks. Afterwards, come back to the lodge, put your feet up by the fire, and share tales from the day over a delicious dinner fresh caught from the bay. 

We can’t wait to welcome you to the lodge.

 

Yours in service,

Capt. Chris Martin
