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.

April Fishing Report For Baffin Bay

April is a great time for fishing the Land Cut for big trout, it’s where I took many of my first charters.  The trout will be at their heaviest weight because they are loaded with roe for spring spawning.  This gives you a great chance to catch your personal best big trout.  The one you take a great picture of or have mounted and put on the wall. The drop off of the Land Cut is one of my favorite places to fish for big trout in April. Casting top waters and soft plastic in the deeper water just off the edge can produce some heart pounding action.  Fishing the Land Cut is always better in the morning but can still produce great action in the afternoon.  If the winds get strong as they sometimes do in April, try Nine Mile Hole.  The water usually stays clear in there even with high winds.  Key in on areas with plenty of sand pockets, this will give you a better chance at catching redfish and trout.  Sandy areas tight to the King Ranch Shoreline also provide the same opportunities.
