Sample of Typical Itinerary:
The typical trip starts with meeting clients at the desired boat ramp. This will depend on which fishing community we are fishing from. South Padre Island, Arroyo City and Port Mansfield are all accessible. Clients can also arrange for pick up and delivery from a hotel or lodge. Most trips will start before sunup and continue until early afternoon. We will then head strait to a poling flat while taking in a beautiful sunrise. Due to our gin clear water, multiple shots on redfish and seatrout are common. Early in the morning we tend to find the fish tailing in groups and on shore lines with their backs out of the water. Very cool! Once the sun comes up it makes it easier to see the fish under the surface. Whether they are moving or stationary, tossing a fly in front of a fish and seeing them eat is truly spectacular. Also very cool! After a memorable day on the water we will return to the ramp to talk about the one that didn’t get away.
