Texas Duck Hunts
During the winter months of December & January, we guide in the Gulf of Texas (out of Castaway Lodge) for waterfowl, hunting the shallow bays and flats of the lower Laguna Madre out of Port Mansfield, TX.
ABOUT YOUR TRIP
Great hunting is abound by the thousands of wintering ducks that use the area. 90% of the the worlds Redheads winter here along with Pintails, Widgeon, Gadwall, Greater and lesser Scaup, Bufflehead, Northern Shovelers, Bluewing, Greenwing, and Cinnamon Teal. Along with snow geese and the non-migrating Mottled ducks that are indigenous to the area.
Hunting the Texas coast is a great place to get trophy ducks for the wall. Many species are in full plumbage! Many guests come for trophy redheads and Big Sprig Pintails but this past season have had hunts up to 9 different species harvested. Along with great hunting afternoon fishing trips add to a great experience. Catching trophy redfish just feet away from where we do our duck hunting for the ultimate cast n blast.
Lodging and breakfast is part of the hunt package. Located right on the water it is a great place to spend the night and enjoy the nice winter weather (60s-70s many days)! Fish/duck cleaning table located right there along with a chest freezer to store your trophies and game. Take advantage of the free fishing on the lighted pier after dark too. There are several places to grab dinner within walking distance. If you catch fish and want it cooked they will cook it for you. Travel time to the boat landing is just blocks away as well so many times you can just hop in the boat right from the lodging.
TRAVELING TO TEXAS
Airports in either Brownsville or Harlingen Texas work best, but others also use San Antonio or Corpus Christi that are 2.5 and 4 hrs away. The closest airport is Harlingen which is about a 35 minute ride away. There is a Bass Pro Shops in Harlingen, TX where you can pick up any last minute items. Can always ship gear and shells via UPS prior to arrival too.
- All pricing is per person, for parties of 4
- PM fishing for redfish and speckled trout is popular for many groups and afternoon or two on your hunting trip.
- Can accommodate larger parties. I work with several guides in town.
