Fishing Trip Rates as of January 1, 2013:

  • $525 for one or two anglers.
  • $75 for each additional person up to five anglers per guide.
  • $100 deposit per day required to hold your trip.
  • $65 per day, per person for three great meals (optional)

In order of preference, payment may be remitted by Cash, Check, Money Order, or Credit Card (All Credit Card Payments Are Processed On-line Through PayPal).

We will customize your trip to your specifications as this is your trip. It’s not about what the guide wants. Baffin Bay is a destination not a day trip. The allure of this Bay system attracts the hardiest of souls and seekers of that special experience that this historic area can provide.

We want your trip to be memorable for all the right reasons. Your frequent calls and questions are welcomed and encouraged. Always keep in contact with your guide to keep track of weather conditions, equipment issues and anything that may affect the quality of your trip.

We wade fish with light tackle lures, occasionally drift fish and also offer fly fishing from Capt. Sally’s poling skiff. It’s all about the experience of fishing Texas’ most famous bay system, not a box full of meat. We enjoy eating fish as much as the next person but ask that you practice a little conservation.

It is your trip and as long as the laws of the state of Texas are adhered to, we are good. As a guideline, we recommend you keep five trout and release everything over 25” unless you plan on mounting the fish. Keep in mind that fiberglass replicas are available these days and usually look better and last longer. We will make sure to take plenty of pictures to commemorate the event and you will see how great it feels to watch a quality fish swim free.

Hunting Trips

Dove Hunting Trips:

Dove hunting trip rates as of January 1, 2013:

  • $125 per person, per day
  • Cast & Blast, add the cost of the fishing trip
  • $65 per day, per person for three great meals (optional)
  • $30 per day, per person for lodging (optional)

Baffin Bay Rod and Gun offers either custom dove hunting trips or cast and blast trips.  Most dove hunting (both whitewing and mourning) is done over harvested grain fields and South Texas watering holes.  Usually, all dove hunting is done within a short distance from the lodge in local fields and pastures.

  • 2013 dates: Sept. 20 through Oct. 27 and Dec. 20 through Jan. 20, 2014

You will need to bring your own shotgun (preferably 12 or 20 gauge) and your own shells (#7 1/2 or #8 ). The number of boxes of shells will depend on how good a shot you think you are. Bring double what you think you will need. Also, make sure you have your hunting license with HIP certification and migratory birds stamp.  Game wardens are friendly and thorough during dove season, so make sure you are in compliance with all of the regulations and that your gun has the proper plug in it.

Its usually very hot during the first part of dove season so dress comfortably in loose camo clothing and make sure you have good snakeproof boots or leggings. Remember, everything in South Texas either pokes, bites or stings. The second season after Christmas can be cold and sometimes wet, so dress accordingly.

Safety is imperative and any unsafe gun handling will not be tolerated. We hunt with dogs and they are like our children so don’t even think of pointing a gun near or shoot over one of our dogs. No little bird is worth the wrath of the owner. Your good dog is always welcome and will be treated like family at our dog-friendly lodge. We will provide plenty of cold drinks and will clean and bag your birds.

Duck hunting on Baffin Bay has become very popular and productive.  Baffin Bay Rod and Gun offers either custom duck hunting trips or blast and cast trips. During the 2011 season, we bagged 13 different species of ducks, while hunting primarily from ground blinds. It does get cold down here in South Texas and you will need to dress in warm, waterproof camo clothing and waders. Sometimes it will be necessary to wade to your blind.

  • 2013 dates:  Early Teal September 14th-29th  Regular Duck Season:  November 2nd through December 1, 2013 and December 14 through January 26th

You will need your Texas hunting license with migratory gamebird endorsement, as well as a Federal duck stamp. You will also need your own shotgun (12 or 20 gauge) and the appropriate STEEL (#2,3 or 4) shot. We hunt with dogs and they are like our children so don’t even think of pointing a gun near or shoot over one of our dogs.  Your good dog is always welcome and will be treated like family at our dog-friendly lodge.  We will provide drinks and will breast (wing attached as per Federal guidelines) and bag your birds.

Our goal is to make sure you have a safe, pleasant and exciting adventure while you are here.
