Happy Tuesday Everyone,
Remember when that favorite grassy shoreline that you used to wade along as a youngster produced great fishing for what seemed like an eternity, but over the years has since become a dead zone due to the fact that there’s simply no natural grass beds there any longer? Or, maybe you remember one particular reef that always used to hold fish in numbers, but hasn’t generated much talk around the cleaning table the past few years since the last hurricane invasion. Maybe you remember the various times when a natural pass to the Gulf, perhaps one like Cedar Bayou, was open and flowing, and the fishing there and in surrounding bays was seemingly unmatchable elsewhere. Remember that?

Cedar Bayou Day
All of those memories, and many others like them, are just part of the overall reason behind why the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) made such a concerted effort of creating a national habitat program of their own, known as the Building Conservation Trust (BCT). The BCT is a conservation habitat program dedicated solely to the business of funding marine habitat creation and restoration in areas that can be accessed and enjoyed by recreational anglers. Their five key objectives are: 1) To restore degraded habitat, 2) To create new habitats, 3) To advance the science of habitat restoration and conservation, 4) To foster habitat stewardship, and 5) To educate coastal communities on the value of conservation.
While their intentions are genuine, and their purpose valid, the BCT can’t be expected to conserve and restore our natural marine habitats on their own. Many local, state, and national fisheries require immediate BCT attention, and we need your help, because the next generation of coastal anglers deserve to have a good fishing environment just like our generation has enjoyed. What you do today, will help shape tomorrow!
You can put an end to marine habitat degradation by partnering with Bay Flats Lodge, as we’re simplifying your gift giving with a more effective approach. When you consider giving a gift to the BCT via Bay Flats Lodge, your contribution goes much further due to our matching gift program – we match your gift dollar for dollar on every occasion. As an added bonus, giving a gift of $100 means you will also receive a Bay Flats Lodge hat or t-shirt (a $25 value).
Your Gift to the Future of Coastal Fishing

Your support will provide future anglers (your children) with a healthier coastal habitat and fishery – something no child should be denied.

The RIGHT to an opinion does not give any validity to that OPINION.

Catch and Release is probably the best gift you can give the bay system.
