Bay Flats Lodge on San Antonio Bay

SOL Y LUNA….The moon was still up and the sun down when we set anchor and the first few casts the trout were on the lines! Boxing two quickly and releasing another five smalls I was like THIS IS CRAZY!! Then the sun peeked over the horizon and that was it. Another 30 minutes and no bite so off we went in search of that frenzy we just witnessed. Shell, sand, mud, grass, didn’t matter what, it was a long time before our next fish. Landing in a lake I have been successful in the past few weeks we boxed two more trout before that bite was caput. 9 AM and the sun now heating up and wind beginning to puff a bit we powered up the new Tran 24 Cat and blasted off to the East to try spots closer to the opening to the Gulf of Mexico. Must have tried a dozen sets along the way before we noticed we were virtually alone in a popular locale and I could see all the details in the bottom like where the guts, grass lines and dropoffs were. This was the key as some Gulf sized trout were hungrily bunched up waiting for our bait fish to invade their space. THUMP! SPLASH! and BOWED UP RODS! over the next hour or so and we were looking for “one more.” Limiting out on solid Speckled Trout for three anglers has been tough during a better part of July for me so I WAS PUMPED! What next? A stab at the Redfish of course so winding our way back to the lodge we set up many times and spots and finally right at 2 PM which was time to go in, we STUCK two good redfish and called it a day. It was hot, still, windy, humid, and successful and the guys never gave up. Great day at “work.”
Remember, “Fishing here is not about challenging your fishing limits, but about the art of relaxation.” Good luck, and tight lines to you all…!

Weak to at times moderate mainly onshore flow will prevail through the end of the week as a strong area of high pressure continues to influence area weather. Isolated showers will be possible through the remainder of the morning and again late tonight into Friday morning. A weak to moderate onshore flow will continue into early next week with scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms expected Sunday and Monday as a weakness in the upper ridge combines with better moisture and surface forcing. Most of the showers will occur from the early morning until early afternoon time period.
