Getaway Lodge's world class bay fishing will find you targeting the big three: speckled trout, redfish, and flounder. We specialize in wade fishing but realize it is not for everyone. Although the best method of stalking the big three is wading, we can accommodate those anglers wanting to drift from the boat. We pair each party with a guide who's number one goal is for everyone to have an enjoyable, relaxing and memorable fishing experience whether wading or drifting.
The Lower Laguna Madre provides some of the best sight casting and wade fishing in the world. Most wading is in water from six inches to four feet deep. So, if water depth is a big concern, remember the lodge saying, "If you fall out, don't panic - just stand up!"
The Getaway Lodge guides predominately use artificial lures for bay fishing and provides all tackle and lures if needed. You are of course, welcome to bring your own. If your party wants to use bait, we can arrange a trip using live shrimp (subject to availability), piggy perch, live or cut mullet. At Getaway Lodge we do not use live croaker for bait due to the adverse affect it has on the fishery.
