A Three-Day Pass to Paradise

What kind of wild and crazy impulse would make two senior guys jump in a car and drive nine hours, just for five hours of fishing, then retrace the route nonstop?  I guess you’d just have to know the workings of a true fisherman’s mind.  The only other thing that even comes close is when your wife goes scorching down the road

Wings and Tails

It Starts in November A majestic time begins each year in November here at Bay Flats Lodge on the Texas coast.

You’ll Be Back. We Promise!

    How often does someone patronize a hunting and fishing lodge specifically because of its over-the-top food, its attentive service staff, or its superb team of professional guides?

Plan A More Sustainable Fishing Trip

The term “conservation” often takes on different meanings based upon the subject of the conversation. For example, a homebuilder’s focal point may be to build homes with high energy conservation ratings. Farmers and ranchers in dry regions of the country focus primarily on water conservation to nurture their crops and livestock. Whereas it’s understandable that a coastal guide outfit may mainly

Take the Hunt to the Swells

Safety First Just because it’s July and the days can be extremely hot doesn’t mean we won’t see any wind this month. On the contrary, we’ll probably see a lot of wind this month, and variable ones at that. So, when we’re talking about summertime surf fishing, we’re talking about days when Gulf-green water reaches the beach. We’re also talking about those

Old Reliable

I spent a recent rainy day organizing and cleaning out my fishing closet at home. You wouldn’t, or maybe some of you would, believe everything I found in that closet. I bet I almost have one of everything that’s offered in the fishing department at my local Academy outdoor store. It’s really out of control, if there is such a

April is here, and a lot of us probably thought it would never happen. We’ve been waiting for spring to arrive by mentally perusing our fishing maps each time our mind wanders.

Airboat Fishing Adventure
