My Girl

On Sunday Truett (my 17 year old son) and I took Allyssa (my 14 year old daughter) out for our first duck hunt of the year. In Texas duck season always starts with a weekend dedicated to youth hunting only.  So, we took two bags of decoys and one twenty gauge shotgun. My little girl made me so proud! Her first duck-and an incredible shot out of the air. Looks like its going to be a great season. We have so many ducks down here! Consider coming down for a guided duck hunt. We would love to have you! Capt. Randy

Another First!

This fall has kept me busy helping anglers new to the sport of saltwater fly fishing catch their first red on a fly. Her is another success story. George caught his first red on a fly rod yesterday after a morning of throwing at severe reds, breaking off a monster red, and realizing just exactly how the game is played. Congratulations George! I hope back down here real soon!

To everyone else; come on down! This is my favorite time of year for fly fishing the Lower Laguna Madre-Capt. Randy, kingfisher inn

First Red on Fly

A new day brought another opportunity for me to guide anglers who were looking to land their first redfish on a fly rod. Mission accomplished! Congratulations to John and John. We had a great day! Not another boat around. Mostly because no other boat besides the Stilt is able to get to the spot we fished all day long! Come on down! Fall fishing is upon us. Capt. Randy

First Red on a Fly for New Clients

One of my specialties as a guide is helping new clients catch their first redfish on a flyrod. For my new friends, Bob and Michelle, this was a special weekend. We had a magical day in a favorite westside lagoon marked by tailing reds and clear water that lasted late into the afternoon. The both caught their first redfish on a fly rod. A great day on the water. A side note; without my new Stilt from Newwater Boatworks, there is no way we could have reached the ultra shallow water venue we fished. There was not one other boat in sight. On a Saturday! Come on down! This is my favorite time of year for fly fishing the Lower Laguna Madre. Capt. Randy

An evening on the water with my sons!

After a very  busy week of guiding fly fishing and dove hunting clients, I finally took Truett and Nolan out in the new Stilt. We pushed the skiff away from the dock at 5PM on Sunday evening. As you can see, we had a great time and motored home in the dark. Nothing quite like being on the water with these guys!

Tuesday was a great day on the water made possible by beautiful weather and great company. Randall Oudt and his father John were a fine couple of clients to spend the day with. As some of you know, I recently lost my father. The camaraderie I saw between Randal and John reminded me of my father. 

The Laguna was good to us and a few fish were landed. I remember two statements that made me smile: "This is the first redfish I have caught on a fly in 20 years", and "This is the biggest redfish I have ever caught on a fly".

enjoy the photos. And get down here to fish with us soon! The laguna is beautiful in the fall and my new Stilt needs some more breaking in!-Capt. Randy
