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 helping my clients catch trophy trout and redfish while keeping them safe and comfortable.  

Corpus Christi is surrounded by miles of pristine crystal clear shallow water flats. Here you will find beautiful wildlife and scenery to share with family and friends.  Big trout along with schools of tailing redfish are ready to take a well placed lure.  Fishing the shallow saltwater flats of the Laguna Madre is truly a experience you will remember for years to come.  The thrill of casting into a big school of giant tailing redfish or catching one of Baffin Bays big trout is second to none. Come spend a day fishing the shallow flats of the Laguna Madre with me and you will be hooked for life.

The weather in Corpus Christi Texas is great year round, great Spring, Summer and Fall with mild Winters. The city of 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.

November Fishing Report For Baffin Bay

We typically see some pretty big changes in the patterns that produce well in the Corpus Christi area come November.  During the early part of the month, we normally have some of the nicest weather of the year.  The air cools off some, but the water is still pretty warm, especially compared with the water in the bays on the Upper Coast.  During this part of the month, fishing the shallows and sight casting for redfish can be spectacular, as it is during all the warm months down here.  Top water action is sometimes off the charts too, but, later in the month, the first strong cold fronts of the season pass through and things change.  Once the water temperatures fall down into the 50's, fishing around or in the Intra-coastal Waterway becomes better, especially for the trout.  It’s not unusual to find fish birds working in the channel and on the drop off. Once the fish move into the channels, catching them consistently requires using the trolling motor to position the boat.   Using a little heavier jig head will help you get the lure deeper and sink faster when working the drop off.
