Bay Flats Lodge on San Antonio Bay
September 18, 2017
Capt. Chris Martin
When you fall off of a horse, you have to get back in the saddle as soon as possible if you ever expect to ride again. When you have a car accident, you have to get behind the wheel again as soon after the accident as possible before you start to shy away from driving altogether. And once you’ve experienced the aftermath of a devastating force of nature like that of Hurricane Harvey, you have to pull yourself together and do whatever may be necessary to put the pieces back together before you can begin to have any normalcy restored in your life.
For millions of people in Texas, Florida, and throughout the many islands of the Caribbean, returning to a “normal” way of life may take months, if not years, in some instances. However, and due to nothing shy of an utter miracle, our immediate area was generously spared from a large part of any catastrophic damage, especially when compared to many other parts of the state.
The Bay Flats guides are all happy to be back out on the water once again following the hurricane, and our lodge guests who are still able to make the trip to the coast are enjoying themselves to no end. There have indeed been some obstacles to overcome in getting our business fully back on track again in the wake of the storm, but a positive attitude and a lot of hard work on the part of everyone involved has helped to ease the pain considerably.
Now, back to fishing! As you might imagine, water levels along the banks of most every major river system in central and eastern Texas swelled to all-time highs as Harvey slowly crept eastward along the Texas coastline. The end result of which has been the introduction of massive amounts of freshwater into every coastal bay system east of Corpus Christi Bay. It’s a natural occurrence that can’t be avoided with a storm of this magnitude, so coastal anglers simply have to deal with it. In our particular case, however, not all has been lost - no one ever told the fish that the freshwater was supposed to bother them.
Our Bay Flats Lodge guests have been enjoying steady catches of trout, redfish, and black drum on an almost daily basis since our first post-hurricane guests arrived on September 9th. There have also been a few Snook landed along the way, which typically isn’t heard of around our neck of the woods. Go figure!
Granted, there’s a lot of dull, dingy, brown water sitting around in a lot of places out in the bay, but that ever-popular trout-green water can still be found here and there if you look for it. Most all of our recent guests have been enjoying the fishing while offering either live croaker or live shrimp (under a popping cork), but a couple of the guides waded earlier this week with plastic tails and experienced wonderful results. Wading will only get better with lower air and water temperatures as we round out September and head into October. Cooler water will mean some of the year’s best speckled trout fishing, and higher tides in October will bring great redfish action. Get ready for some reel fun! Until next time, take care and God Bless!

Plan Ahead For Next Year’s Deer Season…
Open marshlands and sandy swamps covered by grassy plants, and nearly impenetrable motts of trees and brush, are both natural environs that make for a great attraction to the deer, and Bay Flats Lodge hunters are able to take advantage of both. Being less than three hours from Houston, Austin, or San Antonio, our deer hunting property is located along the coastal bend region, providing time saving convenience to hunters. Gone are the days of having to drive into the depths and remoteness of south Texas, or out to the far reaches of some of the more secluded western regions of the state in order to enjoy a trophy hunt of a lifetime. Hunting whitetails with Bay Flats Lodge means spending more time enjoying the finer things in life such as the pleasure of the hunt itself, the camaraderie of friends and family, and the truly finest accommodations and service offered anywhere along the Texas coast.
Our whitetail hunting area was developed locally several years ago, and the land and the wildlife have been managed closely ever since. In that we hold exclusive outfitting privileges on this hunting area, and because it sits just moments away from our Lodge, we are able to provide our customers with a whitetail hunt second to none. We invite you to experience Bay Flats Lodge, the premier hunting and fishing destination on the Texas coast for your next trophy-class whitetail deer hunt.
