12/11/20 – 12/13/20 Self-guided/chartered Coastal Blast and Cast (Duck Hunt and Bay Fishing Trip)


The first FCS Self-guided/chartered Coastal Blast and Cast of the season is set for 12/11/20 – 12/13/20 at Corpus Christi.  Redheads dominate the area, but we’ve also bagged wigeons, pintails, scaups, buffleheads, mergansers, and even a GWT.  Here is a video from a past trip – https://www.facebook.com/Randy.Rowley/videos/10152917784232394 (note: if you don’t have Facebook, you won’t be able to view it).

Duck hunters will launch at Wilson’s Cut.  Fishermen will either launch at the Packery Channel, Port A, or the Marker 37 Marina (depending on weather, tides, and fishing reports).  The plan presently is to fish in the mornings and hunt in the afternoons, but that could change based on results.  It’s also possible for a boat to be dedicated to hunting only and another boat to be dedicated to fishing only.  If fishing is bad, we might forget about it and focus on hunting and vice versa.  We’ll play it by ear.

We have two bay boats committed to this trip (Daryl Shipper’s and Randy Rowley’s).  We’ll stay at this Airbnb house – https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/25839181?adults=8&check_in=2020-12-11&check_out=2020-12-13&source_impression_id=p3_1601677942_BnKY5BLXmd%2FjmAk5.  It has a king, three queens, and a single.  Parking our rigs there will be a breeze, and they will be safer there at night.  It’s swanky.  The cost would be $53/night/person (figuring eight people).  We’ll eat out.  Everyone will buy his own bait, and/or you can use artificial lures.  We’ll share truck and boat gas.

This trip is limited to eight people, including Daryl and Randy, and is full.  The Blast and Cast Rotation applies, as does the Event Hierarchy.  If you’re new to the rotations, here is How the Rotations Work.

Let Randy know if you would like to be added to the Rotation, added to the waiting list (if you’re on the Rotation), or if you have any questions that the Blast and Cast Rotation page does not answer at randywrowley@gmail.com (his preference) or 512-922-2484.  Also, he has extras of many of the items you’ll need for this hunt (such as waders, floating gun cases, cap lights, etc.) and will happily loan things if you let him know that you would like to borrow something before we leave.  Of course, if you borrow something and break or lose it, he will expect reimbursement.
