VIDEO: "Here We Go"
For those of you looking forward to some hot coastal wing action during this years 2018-19 Texas South Zone duck season, your wait is almost over. The first-half of our season begins on November 3rd, and runs through November 25th, with the second-half beginning on December 8th and ending on January 27th. This year were featuring 13 freshwater inland ponds for our visiting winged-friends and waterfowl hunters to enjoy. And if thats not enough to entice the duck hunter urge within you, the ever-growing bird population on our neighboring bay waters, along with our two new Air Ranger airboats, will offer Bay Flats Lodge duck hunters ample opportunity this season, as well.

WEDNESDAY - Oct 24th
Capt. Lil John Wyatt - These guys had an epic day of fishing today! Out day started out kind of dull, dingy, and cold, but once these kinds got into their groove, there was no stopping them. They had an absolute blast catching trout, redfish, and drum all morning long!

Capt. Kevin Matula - Today was Day #1 for this crew from the roofing industry. It was a day of solid catching, as well as for solid fish. These guys were able to box about ten trout and about ten reds, and all the fish were of good size. These were all nice fish, and were just hoping that tomorrow ends up just as good!

Capt. Todd Jones - Another solid October trip for Andy, Brandon, and Jamie! These gentlemen hit the challenges of the day head-on, making their limits of trout and reds look easy. But, I guess thats what it looks like when youre having a great time catching lots of fish! See yall again soon I hope!

THURSDAY - Oct 25th
Capt. Stephen Boriskie - My fishing guests today left the fish biting! We only had a half-day trip this morning, and the guys filled a lot of their time catching and releasing a lot of redfish and black drum. If we hadnt been limited by time, they would have filled their trout limits, also!

FRIDAY - Oct 26th
Capt. Nick Dahlmann - The weather today presented us with a lot of cloud cover, at least earlier in the day, which often changes things a little. However, a member of this mornings group hooked into a true trophy speckled trout, and it was an exciting catch for everyone aboard. We photographed this beautiful fish and then released her back into the bay. Its always nice being able to fish with such conservation-minded customers such as this. Thank you, guys, for a wonderful day out on the water!

Capt. Garrett Wygrys - Todays crew hit the redfish hard, and they were all really nice redfish, too! The trout bite never really happened for us this morning, but the reds were more than willing to participate. My crew managed their three-man red limit, and then they started on the black drum. The weather could have been better, but the day ended up being just fine for having a lot of fishing fun!

SATURDAY - Oct 27th
Capt. Lil John Wyatt - Great day today wading with artificial baits. The sunrise was perfect this morning with little wind, which allowed the guys to work their lures with almost no limits. The skies clouded-over more and more as the day went on, but the wind remained manageable, and there were lots of fish caught as a direct result. It turned out being a day for making memories, which also made for some very happy wade fishermen! If you like to wade fish, nows a great time to take advantage of some prime weather and some prime catching! Just food for thought!

Capt. Todd Jones - Friday was the first day I fished with Matt and Justin, and the bite was scattered. They managed to put a few nice Reds in the box that brought about a couple smiles and a couple photos. Today, Matt and Justin came up one short on their redfish, but they added a few others for good measure. Its been a fun two days of fishing with these guys!

SUNDAY - Oct 28th
Capt. Todd Jones - 9-yr old Jake started this morning off with a biggun. He hooked into a huge black drum that tested not only his strength, but also his patience. Although tired at the end of the battle, Jake showed us all this morning that he has what it takes to become a great saltwater angler. Im sure this is a fishing trip he will never forget!

Fall is finally here, and at Bay Flats Lodge the cooler air turns our thoughts to big cold-water trout. Wading and throwing artificial lures for these trophies is the highlight of the season for us, and many of the anglers on the Texas coast.

We want to see you here at the lodge and share an amazing winter fishing experience with you. This time of year, our guides goals are to help you catch the trout of a lifetime. So, were offering a special. From December 2018 through February 2019, were offering a $25.00 discount on lodging and meals for everyone who books a wading with artificial lure trip. That means that if you book a trip for you and 3 friends or colleagues, youll save $100.00 right off the top.

So, please dont wait. Call Bay Flats Lodge today at 1-888-677-4868 and book a trip to enjoy the fantastic cool air thats come to the Gulf Coast.

We fished with Capt. Kevin Matula, and we truly enjoyed the camaraderie as much as the fishing. Capt. Kevin is such a servant to insure you enjoy your time catching fish. The steaks and pork chops are amazing! - Bobby A. 10/29/18

Our group has been coming here for many years, and we all think this place is a first-class operation! Capt. Cooper Hartmann was great - he knew right where the fish were! Capt. Cooper laughed with us, and he was very helpful in making sure we all had a great time and caught fish! The rooms were beautiful and clean, and the staff made sure from the minute we arrived that we were all taken care of - they were all great! Keep up the great job - your staff and guides are great! - Johnny F. 10/29/18

Capt. Doug Russell and Capt. Nick Dahlman were both outstanding! - David S. 10/28/18
