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.

September Fishing Report For Baffin Bay

September is a great month for chasing schools of big redfish in the Upper Laguna Madre.  This is one of the best months for a combination of fast action and potential for giant redfish in the 40 to 50 inch class.  We’ve been catching decent numbers of bigger than average redfish lately. September, October and November are historically good months to catch some of the bigger female redfish, while they are in active spawning mode.  Of course, all of us should do what we can to preserve fish for the future by catching and releasing redfish, especially the big ones. People sight-casting from the deck of a boat should be prepared to handle their fish at the gunwale.  Try taking pictures, and then release the fish quickly without slinging them on the dry deck.  This helps ensure the fish will survive after they’re released. Of course fishing for redfish in the shallows is also good in September, especially in the mornings, on flats with lots of grass and scattered sandy potholes.  After the sun rises, fishing for redfish is better in two or three feet of water.
