I had a great time today with 3 guys from the Houston area, it was a little breezy, but not too bad. The bite was a little slow but they did a great job of hanging in there and we were able to get their limits by 12:30. Thanks guys for a great time and hope to have you back again soon.

The day started out with a light rain about 8 am, so we waited 30 minutes to see if it going to heavier or not. The water is back up with the south wind, the first stops were where I had been catching reds for the last month, no reds but lots of small trout. So we headed to look for some trout and found more small ones, about 1130 with only 2 fish in the box, I am getting nervous. We have gone thru 2 quarts of shrimp and have caught lots of fish but not keepers. We head back to the bait stand for more bait, totally changed where we fished and luck was with us! They did a great job of catching some really nice fish. Thanks guys for a great day and look forward to doing it again soon.

The morning started out a little cool, 44 degrees at 5 am, but it warmed up to the low 70’s by noon, clear skies, with light north wind, after 2 days of 30 mph + wind, today was god sent day. A friend, his buddy from New Mexico, and I headed out to see if the fish were hungry and luck was with us and we found them hungry. First stop we started with a nice keeper red then lots of short reds, and finally the keepers came in and we got our limit. We still had a hour or so before one of the guys had to go to the dentist, so we went look for some trout and found a few keepers and lots of small ones to keep us busy. The guy from New Mexico got his largest red ever today and the biggest of the day, caught a grand slam, red, trout, and flounder, Way to go Mike ( his name is Mike too). Thanks guys for a great time and look forward to doing it again.

Save$100

You can save $100 off a weekday trip in February but call and let’s get you date saved ASAP, time is running out and the fishing is good !

February 8 and 9, 2017

Welcome to February in south Texas, Tuesday was 90 degrees, with light southwest wind, Chamber of Commerce day, but fishing was tough for trout. First cast got a good hard hit and nothing, kept moving, looking for bait, found lots of mullet, large schools of pony to horse size, but nothing.  The tide was falling when we started and it died, finally about 12:30 we found some but had 10 to 1 throw back to a keeper at least. But it was still a great day on the water. The plan for the day changed as it was foggy until noon, so we stayed close.

Wednesday morning no fog, low 50’s with north wind 20 + mph.  We found a place that was partially out of high winds, first stop was lots of rat reds, next stop same, and then the next stop was still rats but had some nice keepers mixed in. By the time we had our limit we had caught probably 40 + reds and we headed back to the dock.

Thanks folks for a great 2 days, even when the weather doesn’t cooperate, the fishing is still good.

A friend and and I took off after the fog cleared this morning and after 2 weeks off the water didn’t have a clue where to go, but luck was on our side. He did a great job of catching and we headed home before 2 pm to clean the catch. Thanks for a great day and sure glad we did not fish Sunday in 40 + mph winds.

Some of us stayed in Dilley Sunday and headed west early Monday morning for a great time on a blue quail hunt. We met at a ranch south of Marfa Tx Monday afternoon. No street lights at night, bright stars and you had to go 3-4 miles before getting phone service; just a few examples of how nice it was. If you haven’t been to Marfa, the country is really different, but beautiful in it’s on way, you can’t help but love it out there. We hunted Tuesday and Wednesday and got limits both days. We hunted the first day west and south of town, the Davis mountains were in the back ground of the landscape, just 1 ranch over from where we were (7-10 miles to bottom of mountains). The second day we hunted west of Ft. Davis, after the hunt we went into Ft. Davis and had lunch at a local cafe, the food was good. The folks that went are already trying to figure out when to do another hunt, but we have decided to do a 3 day hunt next time instead of a 2 day. If you don’t know where Marfa is, it’s 90 miles East of El Paso on Hwy 90. When we get a date set I will post up opening, the max is 9 people on this hunt with local outfitter. Thanks folks for making this a great hunt and looking forward to the next one.

Sorry more of you didn’t go on this hunt, Friday was windy 30-40 mph + gusts out of the north. It made for tough hunting, the birds were already in the field when we got there and the only way to get them up was by walking them up, despite the wind, we did good. One guy, his two sons and girlfriend from Florida came with us and it was the boys and girlfriends first dove hunt, they don’ t have dove in Florida or southern Georgia like we do. Saturday and Sunday turned out great, cold morning but warmed up nice and not a lot of wind. Everyone had plenty of birds to shoot at and they did a great job of hitting and finding birds. Thanks folks for making this a wonderful hunt.
