Castaway Lodge Seadrift Report
By Capt. Kris Kelley
Sponsored by: Mercury Marine; Air Ranger Airboats; Haynie Bay Boats; Baysport Marine Victoria; JL Marine; Pure Fishing; and, Bob's Machine Shop.
Big winds associated with a late week cool snap pushed up a bunch of water over prime feeding structure and that set the stage for a "catalyst feed" and board bending meltdown for guests. I've often reported that big winds are among our favorite conditions early Spring. While some stretches of the coast may not fish as well in these conditions, our environs set up nicely with numerous protected back lakes and shallow bays. By airboat and bayboat, our guides focused on massive schools of Black Drum and Redfish solidly in the mid slot. Pony Drum to 28" burned the biceps after Redfish limits sending guests home with some awesome tablefare. Tim and his wife Joanna had just an epic trip with Capt. Donnie Heath catching and releasing some 33 slot Redfish over two days along with their limit of Black Drum. Capt. James Cunningham was tasked with introducing Liz H. to coastal fishing along with her husband Skip. Missiona accomplished according to Skip as Liz was setting the hook on limits of Redfish and Black Drum.

Airboat Redfishing Trips
Capt. Chris Cady reported countless schools of solid Redfish and Drum by airboat fishing with Ron B. and daughter. March is the premiere month in the back lakes and we look forward to getting you in the action!
Wade Fishing Artificials/Big Trout
Capt. Nathan Beabout reported solid action in decent water on Dirty Tequila and Blue Moon Down South Lures. Capt. Chris Cady stuck a nice Trout on Topwater scouting ahead of trips and pushing 28" "released". Capt. James Cunningham reported "Redfish everywhere" ahead of the Legends Tournament scouting with Chris and anglers in the tourney. Trout were a little challenging in big winds but some solid bites were found on pumpkin/chart and Chicken on a Chain.
