We’re about as close to having all 8 cylinders firing at one time as we can hope for.  Our guides are hitting a rythm that has produced nothing but impressive results for our guests.  We’re in the 3rd fishing season “post drought” which broke in March of 2015.  Since then we’ve had repetitive fresh water inflows and that just keeps improving bay health and the overall fishery.  It looked like we might be heading for another drought but we’ve managed about 4” of rainfall in recent weeks and that’s keeping salinity levels in check and priming the pump for great fishing. Mother Nature has pulled the curtain back uncloaking concentrations of Trout over big water open bay structure and the fishing couldn’t get much better.  Solid Redfish have been holding to the same structure in tight on shell reefs with scattered “tournament class” fish preferring sand/mud of late.

Airboat Trips

Capt. Chris Cady has had great success tackling solid limits of back country Redfish aboard our new 2017 Air Ranger.  Lighter winds have made some days a challenge but shear numbers have just lit the rods up.

Flounder Gigging Report

Early Summer stride would best describe the gigging of late with great success for guests night stalking the flats by flounder boat or on walking trips.
