Bay Flats Lodge on San Antonio Bay
August 20, 2017



Everyone's Having Fun by Capt. Chris Martin
Our Bay Flats guests have experienced a variety of results these past few days. Some have gotten on the trout first thing in the morning with live bait over oyster beds in shallow, and deep, water. Others have stuck it to the redfish along shallow flats throughout the course of the morning while tossing as close as possible to the grass-lined bank using live croaker or shrimp as a means for enticing the bite. And, some have accomplished the best of both worlds by catching their trout early, and then catching their reds all through the remainder of the day. Needless to say, however, everyone is having fun out on the water right now.

Area anglers should continue to see steady trout results over open-water shell pads, or atop the larger shell reefs situated out in San Antonio Bay. These reefs and pads aren’t always accessible due to nagging winds, so take you efforts to the back lakes when this happens. The lakes have been producing both trout and redfish on almost a daily basis. As usual, focus your search on bait activity, as the odds for catching fish are in your favor when you do so - find the bait, and you’ll most often find the bite.

Wind has not been a huge issue as of late. In fact, there has actually been days here and there with little to no wind at all. Now then, a lot of folks may welcome days like this with open arms, especially if they’re attempting to get on the shell out in the middle of the bay. And granted, days of slack wind offer great opportunities for this. But, experienced anglers know the importance of having even the tiniest bit of wind present whenever attempting a successful day of catching.

As we spoke of in our last report, water movement can sometimes mean the difference between accomplishment and failure at the end of the day. That’s why having even the slightest amount of wind is often much more favorable over having no wind at all, as the wind aids in water movement even in the absence of a tidal change. On days with absolutely no wind at all, check the tide schedules for your area and make it a point to be setup and ready when the water begins moving again, as this could possibly be the only time throughout the day you’ll have a chance at the fish unless the wind picks up again. Until next time, have fun out there, be safe, and be courteous!

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.

sheepy2 BFL Guide Series Hunting Jackets

On Sale - Bay Flats Lodge Guide Series Drake Waterfowl Systems Jackets

$100 plus shipping and sales tax

https://www.etsy.com/listing/5523819...?ref=related-1

DESCRIPTION
Our patented Eqwader™ technology (patent #7,318,239) revolutionized waterfowl clothing and has been a core piece of the Drake Waterfowl™ brand since day one. Just like the Earth's equator is the dividing line between two distinct temperate zones, we noticed a similar dividing line on the body when you are wearing chest waders: cold, hostile conditions above the waders, and warm, humid conditions underneath the waders. Our unique combination of waterproof/breathable fabric on the sleeves and upper body matched with ultra-breathable fleece on the lower body introduced a whole new level of comfort and performance when wearing chest waders. The moisture-wicking fleece on the lower torso is 15 times more breathable than the upper waterproof material and works to prevent the build-up of perspiration and moisture vapor. These dual zones of protection keep you dry both inside and outside your waders.

Materials
• 100% waterproof/windproof/breathable Refuge HS™ with HyperShield™ 2.0 Technology
• Fleece-lined
• Taped seams

Features
• Magnattach™ pocket
• Adjustable neoprene cuffs
• Mid-chest adjustment cinch cord
• Waist adjustment cinch cord
• Zippered chest pocket
• Zippered slash pockets
