Just as the morning sun begins to warm the shallow coves, mullet start dancing across the water. One would think it’s their last jump, knowing just below the water could be a monster trout. This is what keeps us coming back time and time again. Look for trout in slightly deeper guts that tend to weave into and out of oyster shell situated just adjacent to the vast openness of the main bay system.
Monday Captain Cooper experienced exceptional catches of trout just ahead of the strengthening front. Pink corky lures helped produced 40 trout 2 reds for Phillip P. and guests. According to the guests “We must have landed well over 100 trout today.” Meanwhile Captain Nathan was putting our guests from Nashville and Kentucky on their last day of duck hunting in Texas. Props to the Captain for taking 24 ducks on Monday. What a way to show these out-of-state guests a warm Texas welcome.
Captain TJ & Harold found themselves working early into the morning darkness with the DU TV crew. The early morning fog didn’t help the filming, but the video guys said they captured very nice videos of multiple flocks of gadwalls committed to the decoys. “This is just what we came for.” The lodge welcomed an afternoon fishing trip with the Thomas E. party. Captain Jonathan really tried hard till darkness to put the guests on them. It just wasn’t their day, “We caught scores of small trout, and brought a few fish back.”
We welcome 24-guest Tuesday for a full day of blasting & casting and just plan fishing fun. The cold front is blowing around 10-15 mph with some good cloud cover. Reports to follow!
