CORPUS CHRISTI FISHING GUIDES ON BAFFIN BAY, LAND CUT AND THE LAGUNA MADRE

Hello, I'm Captain Joe Mendez, a U.S. Coast Guard licensed full time professional fishing guide in Corpus Christi, Rockport and Port Aransas Texas. I have been guiding in Corpus Christi for 28 years. I’m experienced and knowledgeable in fishing the beautiful waters of Baffin Bay, Land Cut and the Laguna Madre.  I specialize in catching trophy trout and redfish. 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, beautiful wildlife, big trout and schools of tailing redfish willing to take a well-placed lure.  Fishing the flats in Corpus Christi is like no other in the Texas.  The thrill of casting into a big school of giant tailing redfish is second to none. Come spend a day fishing the shallow flats of the Laguna Madre and you will be hooked for life.


The weather in Corpus Christi is great year round, great Spring, Summer and Fall with mild Winters.  Corpus Christi is a great place to get away and do some saltwater flats fishing. The close proximity from Houston, Austin, Dallas and San Antonio makes it easy to get to Corpus Christi from all over South Texas. For those flying into the Corpus Christi International Airport you will have a pleasant and relaxing experience.  All you need for a great day of fishing on the Laguna Madre is to contact me Captain Joe Mendez.

Fishing Report And Water Conditions For Baffin Bay


Water conditions in the Upper Laguna Madre and Baffin Bay continue to be about as good as they get, and the fishing is excellent lately too. "We have some really clear water throughout most of the area. This allows us to make some really good catches in the shallows at times, when the fish move up and we can see them clearly. Places like the King Ranch Shoreline and the spoil banks along the ICW provide opportunities for this kind of fishing on a regular basis when the water's clear like this. In the Lagoon, fishing from the boat around the edges of the grass beds lying next to the deeper water with a bare bottom works better some of the time, particularly on sunny days when the fish seem to get spooky in the shallows. Working the deep rocks and grass lines on the Kennedy Shoreline can be productive in the same situation. On the coldest days, we find more fish holding on the edges of the ICW and the channels which intersect it. The key to catching them then involves matching jig head size to the conditions."
