Bay Flats Lodge

Easy access to a superb inshore saltwater fishery

Bay Flats Lodge is located on the coast of San Antiono Bay and provides superb access to a rich marine environment of shallow saltwater flats and winding creeks that offer exciting sight fishing for redfish.

Remote and unpressured waters 

Texas offers miles of grassy shorelines, back lake marshes, and winding shallow wetlands. Due to the low guiding and angling pressure, fishermen often have large areas to themselves, enhancing the wilderness experience. Fishing is possible year-round with the best months considered to be October and November and March to June. Alongside redfish, anglers might see jack crevalle, black drum, and occasionally southern flounder or snook, especially during spring and summer.

Fishermen tend to use 8# rods, small flies, and longer leaders to navigate shallow, clear waters similar to the bonefish flats of the Bahamas. This setup is ideal for catching redfish weighing between five to ten pounds. Anglers explore the creeks and flats in ultra-light poling skiffs that float quietly in the shallow water. Knowledgeable guides push the boats silently through the waters on the look out for tailing fish and tell-take wakes in the clear water.
