Fishing Report

As with the last couple of cold fronts, water levels on the bays surged over 2' burying the bays and marsh in water. Seadrift had 3.5" of rainfall Friday and we've heard that Rockport and the Refugio area experience levels pushing 10". Castaway Lodge Capt. Steve and Chris focused on the "big pull" over the weekend with a page out of the playbook from last weeks tide surge. Both reported Redfish stacked on mud/grass bottoms pushing into shallower venues. The pair managed full limits over the weekend using a combination of baits including shrimp and cut mullet. We are seeing Trout concentrations on both mud/grass and shell. The reefs in San Antonio Bay are producing limits for wade fisherman working artificial lures while mud/grass venues are being equally as productive while drifting.

The water started dumping from the bays yesterday and have declined nearly 8" and water temperature has been ranging from the mid to upper 60's to low 70's. A cold front is expected Tuesday with substantial North winds on Wednesday as well before backing down on Thursday. As this front meets with already declining water levels, I would expect for the water to fall out substantially. That remains to be seen.

We would like to thank everyone that joined us over the last week and welcome guests from all over the nation for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Thanks for making this a very special place!
