When you’re fishing the flats in Corpus Christi you have a chance of a Grand Slam. A Grand Slam is catching redfish, trout and flounder all in the same day. In Corpus Christi we are surrounded by miles and miles of pristine crystal clear water. You will find beautiful wildlife, big trout and schools of tailing redfish willing to take a well placed lure.  Fishing the shallow saltwater flats of the Laguna Madre is truly a experience you will remember for years to come.  The thrill of casting into a big school of giant tailing redfish is second to none.

October Fishing Report For Baffin Bay

The bull tide rolled in after the tropical depression passed through the Gulf in early September, and the bull redfish rolled in with it.  The high tides and redfish should remain throughout October and into November. High tides and cooler water are making for some great fishing at this times. We do have clear water over the area, so we should have ample sight-casting opportunities along the King Ranch Shoreline and in shallow areas of the Laguna Madre associated with spoil humps and similar features. Clear skies, moderate winds and clear water make for the best sight-casting. Soft plastics paddle tails work great when thrown at trout and redfish. Best bet is to throw the lures out in front of and beyond the fish and work them into their sight lines, using a medium-paced retrieve. If conditions don't favor looking for fish on shallow shorelines and humps, places like the grassy flats behind the bars on the south shoreline of Baffin Bay often produce excellent action on both trout and redfish this time of year.
