Bay Flats Lodge on San Antonio Bay

Capt. Stephen Boriskie

Thursday was a great day back after 3 days off (seemed like 30), switching over to shrimp now with good results wading shrimp and lures over shell produced on a slow tide.  My 3-pack limited out on redfish quickly and boxed a couple black drum along with six specks.  Now today marks the beginning of what I consider our Fall since we had one shift in wind to the Northeast.  Really, things around here have changed for a movement of the fish towards Fall.  Recent heavy rains with cloudiness have cooled the bays off to low 80’s, shorter days have arrived as you can see by the earlier sunset and lazy sun in the mornings, and the cool fronts which arrive soon.  Yep, it’s a transition and we are fortunate to be able to experience the outdoors with customers on a daily basis.  September is full for me aside from a day here and there and October looks good too, so we will be out on the salty water keeping tabs on things for you until you arrive.  Call us and lets see when YOU CAN GET DOWN HERE between football, volleyball, soccer, or whatever you enjoy this great time of year!



Remember, “Fishing here is not about challenging your fishing limits, but about the art of relaxation.” Good luck, and tight lines to you all…!
