Wow, what a day Saturday was!! Kind of the “perfect storm”, having very capable fishermen at the right time and in the right place. Wading with lures with Chet Couvillon and crew. Thanks, Chet, for the business! Enjoyed watching you guys wear them out!

Early morning redfish were good for the group of finance guys fishing with me on Friday, as they had a limit before the stock market kicked-off! Finally, had to turn the phones off to keep their sanity and relax on a Friday only our Maker could have created. Pleasant temps with cloud cover and a flight of Teal humming the waterline on the way out sure put us all at ease. Later our attempt at the other fish species was rewarding but very few were keeper class. All in all it was a super morning and the customers accomplished their goal, getting away with colleagues during the week and catching in some cases their lifetime best fish.
Saturday was special because I was lucky to have a family of four fishing down here on the Texas coast. So the guys show up in game day attire and I’m thinking this is a family rivalry because one had UT and the other A&M. And I was right about that because these two brothers were friendly, but they had some fire. All in all, I think the mom caught the most fish, but I didn’t really keep count because we were on redfish from the beginning. Today was a special challenge for me because there’s been a local guy in my favorite spot who has been watching me catch fish and trying to beat me there so I had to reach deep today and come up with Plan B, which worked out perfectly. I realize that toughness, determination, and creativity are way more important than getting to a spot to fish, and this was a good lesson for me. This was a special day for a family out on the water and we caught fish constantly. Some of the fish were too small, as we probably had redfish in the 16 – 19 inch Class on the line every 10 minutes. It was satisfying for me just see this family work together and have a great day on the water.

Everyone caught a lot of fish Saturday! Two of the guys had never been fishing, but after today they are headed to buy their own rod and reels. Awesome time for these guys fishing with us at Bay Flats Lodge!

Don’t Let Deer Season Sneak Up On You…
Open marshlands and sandy swamps covered by grassy plants, and nearly impenetrable motts of trees and brush, are both natural environs that make for a great attraction to the deer, and Bay Flats Lodge hunters are able to take advantage of both. Being less than three hours from Houston, Austin, or San Antonio, our deer hunting property is located along the coastal bend region, providing time saving convenience to hunters. Gone are the days of having to drive into the depths and remoteness of south Texas, or out to the far reaches of some of the more secluded western regions of the state in order to enjoy a trophy hunt of a lifetime. Hunting whitetails with Bay Flats Lodge means spending more time enjoying the finer things in life such as the pleasure of the hunt itself, the camaraderie of friends and family, and the truly finest accommodations and service offered anywhere along the Texas coast.
Our whitetail hunting area was developed locally several years ago, and the land and the wildlife have been managed closely ever since. In that we hold exclusive outfitting privileges on this hunting area, and because it sits just moments away from our Lodge, we are able to provide our customers with a whitetail hunt second to none. We invite you to experience Bay Flats Lodge, the premier hunting and fishing destination on the Texas coast for your next trophy-class whitetail deer hunt.
Remember, “Fishing here is not about challenging your fishing limits, but about the art of relaxation.” Good luck, and tight lines to you all…!
