Pride Gives Pause

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's 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 bearing down on us as we speak. That knocked water levels down 8" here in Seadrift already. I must say we've been "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.

Way to go KK. I love to see when the the friendly competition is "Whackin and Stackin".

Ain't nothing more rewarding than having a great set of guys workin for you, knowing that they love what they do!

Better yet, having repeat clientele that end up being great friends!

Looking like this season is going to be one of the better ones!

Full Boat, Widge-Tails & Gad-Teals

Capt. Steve Boldt diggin it out on a blue-bird on the bay. Birds were wild and un-responsive early. Around 8:00am or so they seemed to settle down and responded nicely to the call and the blocks.
