Those of you that have fished with me know
that I do this because I love people, as much as the passion that I have for
this fishery. The Park is a wonderful and being away from "civilization"
is a great part of the experience. You have probably had to listen to my version of what is
important in life … “Time, health and the people around you”.
Fishing on the weekends can be challenging
nowadays. More and more people are coming to the Park, mostly on the weekends.
While you can not begin to consider the Park crowded, especially compared to ANY other
fishery that I know, very often, we must travel much farther to get away from other
boats and to find fish on the weekends. Many times, some very good spots are disturbed by
boaters and anglers who simple do not know or care what they are doing. One
powered, "blow-by" by a flats boat on a shallow flat can wipe out two hours of
fishing. This could be the best or sometimes the only good two hours in a weekend
day’s trip! Fishing during the week, at least here, all but eliminates this
My wife Vickie and I enjoy spending time together
and with our friends and family. The weekends are when our friends are in town and off work. However, we
also try to reserve the
weekends for the
guided kayak trips ... Private and
Mother Ship Trips. They are a great experience and we can
fish where most boats simple can not get to!
There may be a $100
premium for the traditional boats on weekends and holidays.
(If my wife is alone on the weekends, she is probably going shopping).
This is at our discretion for now ... hopefully, it will not be a hard and fast
If you really want or must fish on the weekends, we
certainly will! However, as an alternative, we would encourage you to try the
