Quick Early Morning Trout at Bay Flats Lodge Resort & Marina

TUESDAY – April 24th

Capt. ‘Lil John Wyatt – Skies were beautiful, and the wind wasn’t too bad at all (most of the time). Today fishing started out being extremely slow for us – couldn’t locate them right away. However, stuck it out and were finally rewarded with a box of trout by the days end.

WEDNESDAY – April 25th
Capt. Stephen Boriskie – Today the big girls came out to play, as my guys boxed solid keeper trout about every 30 minutes, which was nice because that pace kept the interest and anticipation at a high level. Some stops yielded cast after cast of hookups on small trout, but the good ones were spread out. Action continues to be strong with the lower wind speeds the past two days. How long will the nice weather last? If you figure that one out, please let us know!


Capt. ‘Lil John Wyatt – Some days it just doesn’t matter what you do, you can’t do anything wrong. It seemed like everywhere we went today resulted in us doing a lot of catching, as we ended up with a good box of trout and drum. These same guests will be fishing again tomorrow, but the weather forecast is calling a little bit different conditions. We’ll see what happens!

Capt. Todd Jones – My guys today opted out of the group photo with their fish, but I snuck in a few action shots in between stacking trout in the cooler. Pretty good bite today, with a three-man limit of trout to 18″, along with three black drum to add to the count. Big thanks goes out to Capt. Stephen Boriskie for the fishing report that helped my crew polish off their last few. Back after ’em again tomorrow on a half-day trip with the same group!

THURSDAY – April 26th
Capt. Stephen Boriskie – Day 2 with some fine folks who enjoyed summer yesterday and winter today, with an overnight cold front knocking us around. Good thing they wanted to be back at the dock at 10:00am, because while we scratched out a one-man trout limit they were not prepared for the cold blast. Good couple days and some firsts for some of the guys who have not fished for more than a quarter century!

Capt. ‘Lil John Wyatt – From a weather standpoint, we had a much different day today – early morning north wind, clouds, and cooler temperatures. As a result, the bite turned out being hit-n-miss most of the day, but today’s guests picked away at them until we had a few descent fish for the box.


FRIDAY – April 27th
Capt. Billy Freudensprung – Today was a beautiful day to be out on the water. The Doug T. party dug in and got it done, and they finished their day just one trout shy of their 3-man limit (got a black drum to take it’s place).

Capt. ‘Lil John Wyatt – It was Day #1 on the water with two Bay Flats Lodge guests that are brothers that never have bay fished before. They had a day that they will remember for a long time to come!

Capt. Kevin Matula – It was a nice day to be on the water, even with the extremely low tides. This father and son were able to get some trout and reds before they wanted to call it a day. I think 14 year-old Carter was in need of nap after getting up so early. Good time all around. I hope tomorrow brings them more fish before they have to head out.


Capt. Todd Jones – Since several in the group couldn’t make it down, Dean got stuck riding solo with me this morning. The action was HOT at the first stop, and Dean continued catching one trout after another for the first hour of the morning. We culled out fish for a while, ending up with his five trout up to 20″. We left ’em biting in search of some bigger pulls. After a dozen or so undersized reds, we got on a little black drum bite. Dean landed three up to 22″ before we headed in. Great day out on the water with a repeat customer!

SATURDAY – April 28th
Capt. ‘Lil John Wyatt – Well, what a great Day #2 on the water today the two brothers that I had yesterday, who just thought the fishing was great yesterday! Today they went over the top and had limits of speckled trout, redfish and black drum. They are already trying to figure out how to book another trip soon back to Bay Flats Lodge.


Capt. Kevin Matula – Had another good day on the water with this father/son group. They wanted to leave a little later this morning so they could get a little more sleep but that didn’t stop the fish from biting. The trout bite was hot at the first stop with bites coming every cast. They needed to be back at the dock early so they could get on the way home to Dallas. Good times!

SUNDAY – April 29th
Capt. Stephen Boriskie – Past two days have been dreamy for filling the box with limits of solid trout and getting it done early in the morning. Customers are enjoying the finest in food, lodging and fishing and that will continue throughout the spring and summer, so give us a ring and get in on the action.


Capt. Kevin Matula – Another fun day on the water with Mike and Mike today. I had to come up with some nick names to get it sorted out. They got it done today with their trout and a few blue cats.
