trip description for 3 Person Duck Hunt in South Padre Island

This is a three person half day private bay duck hunting trip near South Padre Island, Texas. The Lower Laguna Madre has some of the finest duck hunting in the United States when conditions are right. Hunting along the edges of the fronts is absolutely the most ideal time to plan a trip. Multiple species move through this bay system on their way South. Large concentrations of redheads and pintails winter here. Other species that migrate through the South Padre area are widgeon, teal, shovelers, scaup, and others. Clients can bring their own retriever if discussed beforehand with the guide. Typically, hunt over decoy spreads consisting of at least 75 decoys. Season starts in November and goes out for two weeks after Thanksgiving Sunday. Starts again on Second Saturday in December and typically goes to last Sunday in January. Guides prefer to duck hunt in the afternoon and will provide a seasoned retriever. This is a fun activity and most clients return to go again. These are not easy hunts and do require some labor. We work with a couple of seasoned taxidermists that can also mount the trophy bird if any clients are interested at a reasonable price. Read More

trip description for Duck Hunt in Port Mansfield

A duck hunting trip from Port Mansfield aboard an airboat offers an unparalleled adventure for waterfowl enthusiasts. The unique capabilities of the airboat allow access to remote marshes and shallow waters in the Lower Laguna Madre, creating the perfect conditions for a successful hunt. The rich diversity of duck species in this area, including red ducks, pintails, green-winged teal, blue-winged teal, mottled ducks, bluebills, and northern shovelers, promises an exciting and rewarding experience. As dawn breaks, the airboat, loaded with gear and eager hunters, departs from Port Mansfield. The air is crisp and the anticipation is palpable. The powerful airboat skims over the glassy water, navigating through narrow channels and over shallow flats with ease. The journey itself is exhilarating, as the boat maneuvers through the intricate maze of marshes and bayous, taking you to secluded hunting spots inaccessible to traditional boats. Arriving at a prime location, the airboat glides to a stop in a secluded cove surrounded by tall reeds and mangroves. The guide expertly sets up decoys, mimicking a small flock of ducks to attract passing birds. Concealed in a well-constructed blind, you settle in, scanning the horizon as the first light of day begins to illuminate the landscape. The first ducks to appear are often green-winged and blue-winged teal, darting across the sky in rapid, agile flight. Their small size and swift movements make them a challenging target, but also highly rewarding. As they approach the decoys, you take aim, the thrill of the hunt surging through you as you successfully bring down a teal. Next, the distinctive silhouette of northern shovelers and pintails become visible against the morning sky. The northern shoveler, with its broad, spatula-shaped bill, and the elegant pintail, with its long neck and pointed tail feathers, add variety to the hunt. These ducks are known for their wary nature, requiring patience and skill to lure them into range. The satisfaction of successfully bagging these ducks is immense, a testament to your marksmanship and the effectiveness of the decoy setup. As the day progresses, mottled ducks and bluebills, also known as scaup, make their appearance. Mottled ducks, with their distinctive mottled plumage, often fly low and fast, while bluebills are known for their speed and maneuverability. The challenge of adapting to the flight patterns of different species keeps the hunt dynamic and engaging. Red ducks, or redheads, are another prized target. These striking birds, with their vibrant red heads and gray bodies, often travel in large flocks, providing multiple opportunities for shots. The excitement of seeing a flock of redheads approaching, their wings whistling in the wind, is a highlight of the trip. Throughout the hunt, the airboat's versatility shines. Its ability to navigate shallow waters and reach isolated spots ensures that you are always positioned in prime hunting areas. The airboat also allows for quick relocation if needed, maximizing your chances of encountering various duck species. As the sun climbs higher in the sky, signaling the end of the morning hunt, the airboat heads back to Port Mansfield. The journey back is filled with the camaraderie of shared stories and the satisfaction of a successful hunt. The diverse array of ducks harvested showcases the rich bounty of the Lower Laguna Madre and the effectiveness of the airboat in accessing this prime hunting ground. A duck hunting trip from Port Mansfield aboard an airboat offers an unforgettable experience. The combination of high-speed travel, access to remote and productive hunting areas, and the thrill of pursuing a wide variety of duck species makes this adventure a must for any waterfowl hunter. The memories of this unique and exhilarating hunt will stay with you long after the season ends. Read More

trip description for Sand Hill Crane in Edinburg

Hunting sandhill cranes in the South Texas brush is an experience steeped in tradition and excitement, offering a unique challenge to even the most seasoned hunters. Known as the "ribeye of the sky" due to their exceptional table fare, sandhill cranes are large, wary birds that require a blend of skill, patience, and strategic planning to hunt successfully. The day begins in the early pre-dawn hours, with hunters gathering their gear and preparing for the journey into the brush. The South Texas landscape, characterized by its vast open fields, mesquite thickets, and rolling plains, provides the ideal habitat for sandhill cranes. The first light of dawn is just breaking as you head out, the cool morning air filled with anticipation. Arriving at the hunting location, the guide selects a spot that offers both concealment and a clear view of the sky. Sandhill cranes have keen eyesight and are notoriously cautious, making it crucial to set up a well-camouflaged blind. The decoy spread is carefully arranged to mimic a feeding or resting flock, a crucial element in drawing the birds within range. Motion decoys can be particularly effective, adding realism to the setup and attracting the attention of passing cranes. As the sun rises, the distant calls of sandhill cranes can be heard, a haunting and distinctive sound that echoes across the landscape. The sight of these majestic birds flying in formation against the backdrop of the Texas sky is both awe-inspiring and a signal to get ready. The cranes typically fly in from their roosting areas to feed in the fields, making this prime time for hunting. Patience is key as you wait for the cranes to approach. The birds often circle high above, scrutinizing the decoy spread before committing to land. When a group finally descends, the excitement is palpable. You wait for the right moment, then take aim and fire, the challenge of hitting such a large but wary bird adding to the thrill. The sound of a successful shot, followed by the sight of a crane falling, is immensely satisfying. Throughout the morning, the patterns continue, with flocks of sandhill cranes flying in and out of the area. Each opportunity requires careful coordination and timing, as cranes can quickly detect any irregularities and change their flight path. The broad, open skies of South Texas offer plenty of opportunities, but they also mean that the birds can see you from far off, demanding a high level of stealth and precision. Aside from the hunt itself, the experience of being immersed in the South Texas brush is memorable. The rugged beauty of the landscape, with its mix of open plains and dense mesquite, provides a picturesque backdrop. The diversity of wildlife in the area, from deer and javelina to a wide variety of bird species, adds to the overall richness of the experience. As the hunt concludes, the successful harvest of sandhill cranes is celebrated. These birds, known for their delicious meat, are highly prized, and the effort put into the hunt is richly rewarded. Cleaning and preparing the cranes for a future feast is part of the tradition, with many hunters savoring the anticipation of a meal that is as unique as the hunting experience itself. Hunting sandhill cranes in the South Texas brush is not just about the thrill of the chase, but also about the connection to the land and the camaraderie among hunters. It’s an adventure that combines skill, patience, and an appreciation for the natural world, making it a cherished tradition for those who partake in it. The memories of this hunt, from the haunting calls of the cranes to the shared successes, create stories that will be told for years to come. Read More

    I have fished all over the world and been a guide myself for many years and I would highly recommend the fishing experience Captain Russell provides. If you are wanting to take your family out for a great afternoon of fishing Captain Russell is who you need to book with hands down. He had us on fish early and often despite the windy conditions. My youngest, who is 7, caught his personal best on this trip. We will definitely be back to fish with Captain Russell again!

    What an outstanding time that we had with Captain Mike. This was our very first time boat fishing and we had done so at the request of my son for his 17th birthday. Captain Mike was incredibly accommodating, very easy to communicate with and more importantly knowledgeable when it comes to fishing. He was incredibly patient, taught each person in our group of four how to properly cast and really made sure that we had a good time (and also made sure we caught our limit, I have no doubt he would have stayed out there all day to make it happen.) I'm new at this but I am sure this is the type of experience you hope for with this sort of activity. Book this gut y'all. I PROMISE you that you will not be disappointed. Thanks again Captain Mike for a memorable experience!!!!!

    Jonathan is an outstanding guide. He went out of his way to ensure we enjoyed the trip and patiently explained things multiple times when the kids didn't understand. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to spend time fishing in the Port Isabel and South Padre area.

    Excellent time with Captain Mike, a professional from start to finish, great with kids and inexperienced anglers.

    I hate reviews that don’t give you all the info you need. Emilio and his crew hand did a great job they brought us to a few spot that put us on 5-10 fish at a time the boat got us where we needed to go 5-10 miles out from the docks the squid bate was decent the rods were all usable there was a restroom on board In all especially for the price I would definitely take this charter again during the summer!!! Timing matters when fishing!
