FAMILIES WITH KIDS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!

 

Kids Love to Fish!  It's a great way for family to reconnect and Capt. Chad has a special and patient way with young children.  He provides a different kind of trip for them and the whole family - one that allows them to catch fish and have lots of fun, long before the weather gets to them and they become drained from the wind and sun. They learn to catch fish while being entertained and educated about the eco-system, different types of fish and the marine life they encounter out on the water...like dolphins playing and birds they'll see.  It's an adventure they won't soon forget - everyone has fun and comes back with plenty of fish!

Current Fishing Report:

April 16, 2014

Winter just will not give in but lots of redfish have shown up patrolling the flats even with the cooler water temperatures. I have found most redfish or holding in shallow water less then 2 foot. Weather they eat is another story had some awesome days with easy limits and a few tough days this week after the last cold front. Trout have been showing up also so mixed boxes has been common this week.  Schooling trout have been showing up on outside of Ransom inland and also along Lydia ann channel. Soft plastics or live shrimp has been my choice to get these trout in the boat. Most have been keepers but not seeing as many schools as we usually see this time of year. I'm sure it will turn on big time in the next week or two.  We have mostly been targeting Redfish starting off they have been in just about every flat holding over shallow grass. I would work the flat hard. Cut mullet, finger mullet, Menhaden and sea lice has been what they're eating. I have been free lining my baits so they stay out of the grass.
Check out some of my photos from this week. Take a child fishing make great memories for them to last a lifetime. I still have a few days open this month!  Reserve your fishing trip today!  Call me: 361-463-6545!

Redfish: Also known as red drum, this fish has large, distinguishable spots on the upper part of the tail.  Fun to catch and even better to eat.  Many of the local restaurants will cook your catch for you!


Speckled Trout:  One of the most popular sport fish along the Texas coast.  Its willingness to hit natural/artificial baits make the species extremely popular with rod and reel anglers  Rod-benders!

Flounder: These flat fish are one of the most delectable fish to eat.  These unique fish are caught at night in the late fall and early spring month (except for the month of November).
