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.

Saltwater Fly Fishing Shamrock Cove Corpus Christi Texas
Tides still stand at high levels in the Upper Laguna Madre and water clarity is excellent over most of the area. I am looking forward to continued opportunities for sight-casting as long as we have such clear water. Try areas lying over shallow pot holes with bright sandy bottom. In order to take advantage of this opportunity, look for areas which are too shallow to hold fish on normal tide levels. Like spoil banks and sand bars immediately adjacent to the shorelines. We are casting a bead chain eye chartreuse clousers and crab patterns for the most part. Most of the time simply casting a few feet in front of the redfish and striping back steadily will trigger the strike. Sight-casting works best from the boat when light winds create enough waves to allow for seeing into the water but doesn’t create a lot of hull slap. Of course, on days when sight-casting becomes difficult, we target our fish in slightly deeper areas.
