Back N Forth On Big Winds
Posted By Kris/ In Castaway Lodge Hunting Fishing / Tuesday, August 8, 2017
Capt. James Cunningham and Capt. Chris Cady bent the boards big time with Kevin's group taking Trout limits and solid numbers of Redfish hitting a window of stable winds late week.
"Can't Rush A Sunrise"
Posted By Kris/ In Castaway Lodge Hunting Fishing / Sunday, July 30, 2017
The wind had settled out that morning and decent tides brought greening water over prime structure in perfect timing with the water entry. That led the guests to a barn burner and some heavy fish boxes with board bending smiles to all.
Challenged Through Initial Wind Pop

Capt. James Cunningham said "timing was everything and you had to be in the right place at the right time while eyeballing tide catalysts and even waiting on them if necessary".
Night Visions & Full Moon Decisions
Posted By Kris/ In Castaway Lodge Hunting Fishing / Monday, March 20, 2017
Combine the challenges of a full moon with a big water fall out and then put a 30 mph wind on top of that and I promise you'll have your hands full figuring that out. When that happens you better hope you're lucky and good!
"Reds Running Deep, Tight Lip Trout, Toe Nail Draggers"
Posted By Kris/ In Castaway Lodge Hunting Fishing / Monday, January 11, 2016
Slack winds and ultra mild "back to wearing shorts and flip flops" had the guns quieted a bit on early morning puddler shoots only to be replaced by the amber glow of hot barrels and flaming exhausts on the latest cold front. That also sent the fish deep. . . .
HOT BARRELS AND SMOKING DRAGS ON THE SEADRIFT RIVIERA!
Posted By Kris/ In Castaway Lodge Hunting Fishing / Monday, November 30, 2015
The Alexander's made it in on schedule with no problems from AZ for their visit dating back every year for over two decades. We welcomed some new and returning faces as well with eager youngsters and wives in for a first go round with duck hunting. All in all, I just had to step back and admire our Band of Brothers (our team of Guides) and the wonderful spirit of our visitors.
Swarming Schools & Tight Trout
Posted By Kris/ In Castaway Lodge Hunting Fishing / Monday, September 28, 2015
High tides continue to be a theme through the Super Moon cycle and that continues to take the Capt's of Castaway Lodge ultra shallow. Solid schools of bruising Redfish and Black Drum have been foraging on freshly flooded flats with comfy water levels leading to explosive action for our guests.
Top Fuel, Fall Primer, Key Dates Set
Posted By Kris/ In Castaway Lodge Hunting Fishing / Tuesday, September 8, 2015
Redfish action continues strong as Capt. Chris Cady noted over the big holiday with full limits for guests. Mud/grass venues remain the go to with elevated tides opening up some hot spots. September is a month of transitions in terms of approach and bait choices will begin to vary with artificial approaches moving on the upswing in effectiveness.
