sheepy2 From Grind to Grand This Past Week at Bay Flats Lodge

Bay Flats Lodge on San Antonio Bay
April 5, 2018


WEDNESDAY - Mar. 28th
Capt. Steve Boldt - Slow grind over the past weekend with the low tide and strong winds ending with half limits of trout for their efforts but things seem to be picking back up this week so far.

THURSDAY - Mar. 29th
Capt. Perry Rankin - Had the pleasure of fishing with two gentlemen that are homebuilders who were visiting the lodge. Wednesday was a very windy day, but we did manage a few fish. Thursday, on the other hand, proved to be a beautiful day with great success. Also, got to see our three resident Whooping Cranes.

TUESDAY - Apr. 3rd
Capt. Stephen Boriskie - Tuesday and Wednesday were with repeat customers in the building supply biz entertaining top producers. Wind was high both days, but out of different directions, challenging us on locating and catching fish. Good friends and friendly competition made it all good at Bay Flats Lodge.

Capt. Todd Jones - Tuesday was a “New” kind of day with Steve from New Braunfels, and Brandon from New Jersey - lifelong friends making their first visit to Bay Flats Lodge as the highlight to their annual visit. Brutal south winds were no deterrent to a fun-filled day of friendship and fishing. Both guys enjoyed their limits of trout and redfish, with Brandon catching his personal best trout at 22”. They released another three limits of reds before calling it a day, heading in with a solid box of fish. Enjoyed the day guys! Hope to see you again very soon!

WEDNESDAY - Apr. 4th
Capt. Cooper Hartmann - Wednesday wasn’t too bad of a day for fishing, considering the wind was blowing 30-mph out of the north.


Here’s What Some of Our Recent Guests Had To Say…
Capt. Billy Freudensprung is the best guide I've fished with in ten years! OUTSTANDING!
- Robert C. 4/4/18

Had a great time! The food and the accommodations were great, and Capt. Kevin Matula did a wonderful job! The food is always good, but the pork chop was outstanding. It was an overall great trip!
- Frank D. 4/2/18

The staff was very professional and helpful on all occasions. Capt. Buzz Dillon was great - we caught limits of redfish both days! The lunches were good, but the appetizers and the dinner were exceptional, and the property and accommodations are first-class all the way. Very impressed! Everything regarding Bay Flats far exceeded my expectations. Keep up the good work!
- Matt J. 4/2/18

Overall great experience! First-class facility! Definitely will be booking a trip with clients in the future!
- Louis W. 4/2/18



Upcoming Events:
May 17th - Combat Marine Outdoors
Due to damages incurred by Hurricane Harvey, Seadrift’s own legendary seafood restaurant, Barkett’s, will no longer be opening their doors to the public. In Barkett’s absence, Bay Flats Lodge has volunteered to serve as host to this year’s annual luncheon event for the Combat Marine Outdoors organization. Their program serves as a vehicle to demonstrate to these Marines, Sailors, and other service members that there are tens of thousands of patriotic Americans who truly care about these brave warriors and are willing to show their appreciation and support by providing once-in-a-lifetime outdoor adventures in some of the most incredible places in the world. It will be our honor and our privilege to host the members of such a fine organization.

CCA Texas - S.T.A.R. Tournament 2018
May 26th through September 3rd, 2018
Just like your lure presentation, CCA is always working to improve the CCA Texas STAR Tournament. This year we are rolling out our brand new CCA Texas Guides Division. The addition of this division DOES NOT affect any other part of the tournament and guides are still ineligible in other divisions. It is the hope of Texas STAR and CCA Texas to be able to reward Texas fishing guides who support marine conservation, and empower them to help recruit more anglers into the CCA mission through this new division. The division winner will be taking home a new 26’ Mowdy Cat, Mercury 225hp ProXS OptiMax outboard, and custom Coastline trailer.
Division framework: All eligible guides who were present when a member of their party catches any fish on the final leaderboard on a paid, or unpaid trip, will be entered into a drawing to win the division, pending polygraphs. Drawing will be held after the final winner board is posted. Entries will be weighted in descending order based upon final standings, with a division-winning fish (including all tagged redfish winners) being worth five entries and a fifth place fish being worth one entry. The guide must be listed on the angler’s Official STAR weigh-in form to receive entries. Please see www.startournament.org for eligibility requirements and further details.
