Fishing remains good in the Laguna Madre and Land Cut areas. Most of the action is close to area shorelines or on the spines of spoils then. With normal tide levels, we’re having success targeting trout and redfish over sandy bottom, in areas close to grass beds. Most of the fish are biting in water around thigh to waist-deep. In areas with the clearest water, we’re sometimes able to locate the fish by sight. In other places, we key on thick rafts of flipping mullet to lead us to the right places. In any case, the best bite has been on soft plastics rigged on light jig heads, either eighth or sixteenth-ounce. Erratic presentations work well on some days, when the fish are somewhat negative. When the bit is better, it’s possible to catch them on paddle tails reeled steadily in front of their eyes. We expect the steady catching to continue in August. It’s a great time of year to target reds in open areas of the Lagoon, among other things.
