Bay Flats Lodge on San Antonio Bay Report
By Captain Chris Martin
Towards the end of last week the wind settled down, and the trout fishing picked up with limits to near limits. Red fish catching also picked up for several BFL Guides. The lodge wants to thank Bill T. for trusting us with your customers for the second time this summer. Most boats limited out on trout early over deep shell in SAB with live bait. It was also cool to see reds coming back to the boat on the same exact sets.
I want to thank Andy K. and Jeff K. for allowing BFL to host their company employee weekend fishing trip. The crew from the town of Brenham, Texas makes the best ice cream in the world, and they know how to fish. Saturday & Sunday were carbon copy days for deep shell trout action with limits to near limits. Congrats to Captain TJ Christensen for limiting out on trout & reds on Saturday. Good showing as well for Captains Harold, Jason, Nathan, Cooper and Steve.
Please take a minute or two and watch the below video. A tribute to the WWII veterans and Mom’s who prayed together in a small church in Seadrift to keep all 52 sons alive during WWII.

Just wanted to send a note of appreciation for our stay and fishing trip. The weather was a bit hotter than we had hope and the wind was not cooperative, but my son and I still managed to get our limit on redfish, including a couple of 27 3-4″ “tournament reds” that provided a couple of great fights. We really appreciated the efforts of the staff and the attention we got at Bay Flats and hopefully we will be able to make a return visit….After we got cleaned up we were not able to find our guide, so I left a tip for him upstairs with the staff that was preparing food for the next crew. I hope that this got to him as he worked pretty hard to get us on the fish. Many thanks for a great time. My son is already texting some of his friends back at Oregon State to show off the fish and to suggest that they make some time to come down to the gulf coast sometime…..He is also working on trying to duplicate the bacon wrapped shrimp with jalepeno jelly for his friends when he gets back (so additional thanks to Sherman for preparing those and tempting our taste buds…) Thanks for a memorable time, Dave McElhaney Katy, Tx
