I had a great day with dad and son from Laredo. We caught trout and redfish, and got to see his face with a cross between a frown and a smile while he was struggling to fight a redfish, wish I’d had a camera handy for that look on his face!
Looking forward to having them back next month.

Great day on the water, this is the 3rd time in 4 years getting to fish these girls and they are fun. They caught some nice trout and 2 flounder. The girls had just finished reading all of Harry Potter’s books and I learned a lot about Harry. Way to go girls and dad. Look forward to having you back again.

I had a great morning with a couple from San Antonio and their nephew from Midland. We fished Copano Bay to get a place to hide out of the wind and we caught some nice black drum. Looking forward to having them again this summer.

I had a great late afternoon trip with dad and son from Corpus Christi, we went back to the Copano Bay area for drum. We had our limit of drum in about 1 hour and caught lots of undersized fish for action to keep us busy. The son caught the biggest and the most, but both came away happy with lots of fish to take home. We worked several areas for redfish but didn’t find a keeper. Great folks and hope to see them back again.

Windy again, but we scratched out some nice trout and a bonus flounder. I had a great group of Guys from Houston fishing the FSG Tournament, we started out fishing drops on the King Ranch shoreline, 2nd cast nice solid 19 inch plus trout; I am thinking it is going to be a great day. We moved 8 times and couldn’t get anything but dinks. We toughed it out and had 10 good solid trout and the flounder. The good fish were caught along the drops of the ICW, and dinks in potholes and grass everywhere else. Super nice guys and hope they had as much fun as I did. Sorry we didn’t place in the tournament again this year guys, but maybe next year. Look forward to seeing you again.

We had a great day, even fighting the wind for some nice reds and trout. We caught lots of smaller reds and a few dink trout during the day. It wasn’t a fast bite, more off than on, but we had a nice mess of fish. Great folks and look to see them back in August and October.

Originally this trip was planned in May we had to move it to June due to winds, I am sure glad we did. We started out fishing for trout early, caught lots of dinks and gafftop’s and a few keeper trout, the wind picked up and so we went inside the flats to see if we could find a redfish. We got lucky and found some and as you can tell in the picture, the 27″ redfish was this young mans biggest so far. Had a great time with dad, son, and uncle and sure glad I got to see him get his biggest red.
Thanks guys and look forward to another great day on the water with you.

Went with friends to set tracks on a new boat and GPS from Hampton’s Landing to Baffin, this was mainly to set tracks to help him get there in bad weather and in the dark, but if you go that far you got to take a pole and fish some. We fished 3 -4 spots in Baffin as the wind came up and caught a few fish, nothing to write home about. The wind picked up so we worked our way back down the King Ranch shoreline to track it and the Boat Hole and back home (118 miles round trip). Great day on the water with friends.

I had a great day with a man and his dad-in-law from the Austin area. Weather was great, light winds, and the fish cooperated. We caught lots of little trout and some keepers, gafftops up to 5 lbs plus, and reds. We had a great time and hope they enjoyed the fresh fish for dinner last night. Thanks guys for making it a great time.

I took my wife Shelly fishing today for a belated birthday present, we left the dock at 6 am, the winds were light and it made for a good day on the water. Shelly got her limit of spotted trout and 1 sand trout, she was on the phone (figure that out) when I reeled in a 34″ redfish. What a day!
