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


Our trout and redfish tend to stay really shallow most of the time is March.  This makes for excellent sight casting opportunities on a daily basis.  Of course the wind is a help in the sight casting game.  You need enough wind to break up the glare on the surface so you can see into the water.  Too much wind will muddy things up, so medium wind speeds provide the best opportunities.  In March we have heavy winds some of the time, particularly from the middle of the day on through the afternoon.  Due to the heavy winds late morning is the best time frame to search for trout and reds in the shallows.  Before this drill gets underway it’s often possible to catch them without seeing them, of course, on soft plastics rigged on light jig heads, also on slow sinking twitch Baits or Top waters.  When the fish are up near the shorelines, on top of sand bars or in the shallowest parts of grassy flats in low light conditions, they often feed vigorously, so the bites can be frequent and memorable.
