Hello, I'm Captain Joe Mendez, a U.S. Coast Guard licensed full time professional fly 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 fly fishing the beautiful waters of Laguna Madre. I specialize in catching redfish and trout on the fly. When you’re fishing the flats of the Laguna Madre you have a chance of catching the biggest redfish of your life. Here on the Laguna Madre we are surrounded by miles and miles of pristine shallow water flats with schools of tailing redfish willing to take a well placed fly.
Fly fishing the flats in Corpus Christi Texas is like no other in the United States. The thrill of casting your fly into a big school of giant tailing redfish is second to none. Come spend a day fly fishing the shallow flats of the Laguna Madre and you will be hooked for life. The weather in Corpus Christi is great year round, a great Spring, Summer and Fall with mild Winters. Corpus Christi is a great place to get away and do some saltwater flats fly fishing. The short drive 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 fly fishing on the Laguna Madre is to contact me Captain Joe Mendez.

Spring is around the corner and that means schools of redfish will be rolling on to the flats. High tides and warmer water will make for some great fly fishing on the Laguna Madre. 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. Crab and shrimp patterns work great when casting at redfish and trout. Best bet is to cast your fly out in front of and beyond the redfish and strip them into their sight, using a medium retrieve. If conditions don't favor looking for fly fishing 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.
