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.

August Fishing Report For Baffin Bay

With the water so clear in the Upper Laguna Madre and Baffin Bay, I’m looking forward to some good lure fishing in the month of August.  We are able to see the rock formations well when the water is clear like this.  Also, the deep outside edges of the grass beds are easy to see as well.  When we are fishing for redfish this time of year, we usually look for them early in the mornings.  They often push wakes when they move to get out of the way of the boat if we pass reasonably close to them.  Later in the day, the bright skies and Clearwater have been allowing us to keep track of the schools even when they move out in the middle. We look for reddish-gold patches in the water when we’re working that drill.  Trout fishing is the best in relatively deep water most of the time this month.  All the major rock formations in Baffin have great potential this time of year.  Our catching is usually best on soft plastics worked low in the water column.
