We have been chasing whitetail deer on our lease south of Seguin, TX hard this year. There have been a number of nice deer taken in the 150 inch range which is a “trophy” on our place. Anything over 140 is a damn nice deer on our ranch. Unfortunately, I am sitting on zero but I’m hoping that luck changes this weekend.
Almost pulled the trigger on this guy but he is in that hard to judge range between “cull” and “management” and that makes a difference on our lease. Continue reading Deer Hunting Report December 2016
Solid day of wade fishing over knee deep mud/grass. Between the two of us, we caught 30-40 trout and 6-7 reds. Released two 5 pounders on back to back topwater cast. Other baits of choice were Corky Softdines and Down South Lures key lime.
Our Waterloo Rods and Fins Braid got a work out today! The key today was finding areas holding rafts of mullet. In these areas the bite was very strong, dragging a topwater or Corky Softdine through this bait proved to be the ticket. On wades we made with single jumping mullet here and there, meant we had to walk twice the distance for one or two bites, and it wasn’t always a keeper.
This time of year you have to pay attention, listen to what the water is telling you. And, just like today don’t be afraid to get right back in the boat after only a handful of cast. Go looking for the bait. Regardless if it’s a break in the weather or during a front, fishing has been hot. Give me a call today for winter wading prices.
We have a lot of winter left, don’t miss your chance at some fine fishing.

When hunting, an often overlooked detail is the overall comfort of your footwear. As hunters, we don’t mind roughing it and being miserable to find our quarry. But for the sake of your physical well being, a quality set of boots can mean the difference between filling your tag or going home early with an injury.
Earlier this year I realized I was going to hunt in Montana for Mule Deer and Colorado for Elk. This combined with a lot of time in South Texas looking for Deer and pigs along with a little time in West Texas hunting for Predators. I knew I needed a new set of boots to hike all over the mountains and in all conditions.

What was supposed to be a sight casting trip, turned into us chasing trout first thing in the morning, hoping by mid-day the sun would pop out. Lucky for us we landed on some solid trout right off the bat. Putting several fish in the box over 20″ and capping it off with some respectable 18-19″ fish. Continue reading Seadrift Fishing Report December 7, 2016
With a steady 10-15 mph north wind, we decided to take our chances down south of SA Bay. Days like this one with cloudy skies, and cool temps had us all hoping for some big trout action. Our first couple wades came up with just a couple solid trout and a few nice reds. Then by mid-morning as the sun tried to peak out, bait fish became more active, pelicans were crashing the shorelines, and the bite turned on.

The trip started off a little chilly as we waited for the sun to climb. With the passing cold front, our tides have dropped to normal levels. This is a very welcome sight because now trout and reds will start to congregate back in there normal areas. Many of my favorite spots to wade were simply to deep until this front. On the sight casting trip it helped to funnel redfish out of the secluded ponds and puddles, and pushed them into creeks and larger lakes with relatively deeper shorelines. From what we saw today many redfish were traveling in small groups of 3-6, not many singles. Continue reading Seadrift Redfish fishing report

There is nothing like hunting in Texas. The Texas sky. The howl of coyotes. A hawk gliding overhead. That Texas sunrise. The anticipation as darkness fades away into first light.

Opening Day of deer season is the most anticipated day of the year for those who love hunting. We are on a MLD3 ranch so we have a soft opening in October for does and culls but the real hunt for us begins on November 1. The first Saturday of November is special.
Our lease is south of Seguin. We had good sign on game cams and were excited to finally be in the woods looking for that trophy buck. We headed out Thursday morning (again, on a MLD ranch) and hunted hard until Sunday evening. Continue reading Opening Day 2016
