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.

In the days prior to giving this report, the tide levels in the Upper Laguna Madre rose quickly, back to values well above normal. Now that the tide has gushed back in, we’ve got clear ocean water all over the Lagoon between Marker 37 and Baffin Bay. The ultra-clear water makes it easier fly fishermen to sight-cast, of course. Lately, my fly fishing clients have been catching redfish by locating the schools and casting right at them. This will continue to be easy with the high tides. We also have seen some really big trout and have consistent shots at them while we are targeting the redfish. One thing the high tides do is displace some of the fish well into areas normally too shallow for fishing. In places like Baffin Bay and the Meadows, the fish will sometimes venture up onto the shallowest parts of the sand bars when conditions are like this.
