An October reflection would find us talking about rain and more rain along with cold snaps and amazing fishing! Great folks enjoying the Fall season with friends, family, co-workers, clients, and vendors on a stage set by an amazing cast of guides here at the lodge! Capt. Chris Cady reported a staggering topwater bite wade fishing this morning including Trout to 26" slamming bone tops. A blistering pace on Redfish action has had our guests "bowed-smooth-up"! Slicking off here periodically as the weather has settled out had thrown some weakness in the bite but patience is key here. One of my favorite tactics was looking for fishin on a slick-off and then as the winds picked up, doubling back to concentrations and lighting them up. Another tactic if I already knew where they were and had them penned up was to stay away during tough conditions like a slick-off until things improved.
Duck Season Approaches
Days and days of field work will set the stage for another great duck season! I know I can speak for all of the guides when I say "we're ready to start thumping"!
We've got lots and lots of great fishing ahead of us. So if you're planning a trip, get started HERE
