Hauling Water

We had a fishing meltdown on Saturday with a falling tide most of the day, previously productive areas went "stone cold" for Castaway Lodge Capt's Steve Boldt, James Cunningham, Chris Cady, and Doug Russell.

Digging Deep

Mike and his guests were celebrating his 50th birthday here at The Lodge and they are new clients. These guys are gentlemen and there wasn't a whiner in the bunch even as Mother Nature dealt them a nasty water-haul on Day 1. The results of Day 2 left the ills of Day 1 behind and you couldn't ask for a better "rags to riches" finish. Steve & Chris were back at it today with a real estate shift in mind. Working shallower environs over grass produced near limits of Redfish & full limits of Black Drum for the effort with the Mike P. group.

I'm so very proud of these guys, every one of them. From our newest guide Capt. Doug Russell, Chris, Steve, Jake, James, all of them hit it out of the park and do so regularly. Capt. Chris Cady, when he was still in high school, worked airboat logistics for us, guides helper, deck hand, brushed blinds, built blinds, you name it. I've watched him get married, have kids, I even sponsored his run for the Capt's license. It is so very rewarding to see these guys doing what they do best. Seamless teamwork and selfless dedication to the trade come naturally around here.

Inland Ducks & Geese

Capt. Jake Huddleston's mastery of inland hunting in the Seadrift area took guests from as far away as Alaska to full limits Friday-Sunday with solid straps of primarily puddle ducks including Widgeon, Gadwall, Teal, and Pintail. I can't forget to mention a few divers including Canvasback limits with a few "luck lucks", Specklebelly geese for good measure. Phil, Chris and guest had never killed a "Can" before and it was a "Crimson Tide" over the blocks Sunday.

Saltwater Tears

Capt. James Cunningham tackled a difficult airboat logistics schedule with the Frank M. party over a hectic weekend riding our bay environs to as near limits as you can get without "limiting out" on ducks. Pintail, Redheads, Widgeon, Gadwall & Greenwing Teal dominated our saltwater marsh straps over the weekend.

Castaway Lodge Forecast

We've got a cold front coming tomorrow and that should help knock water levels down a bit. I must say we are "anxiously awaiting" some brisk weather. Castaway Lodge forecast calls for heavy Straps & Stringers. We wish you the very best and safest adventures in the outdoors. Special thanks to all of our guests that make this a very special place.

Northwind & Fall Again

Solid North wind action, beginning to feel like Fall again! Water levels have dropped by 8" here in Seadrift and that should help take the fishing to a whole new level! Reports to follow.
