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.

February Fishing Report For Baffin Bay

February ranks right at the top of the best months to target big trout in the Corpus Christi area.  A lot of big trout come out of Baffin Bay and the Upper Laguna Madre this time of year. Other parts of the area produce monster trout as well, notably the Land Cut.  We seem to have escaped a bad fish kill during the cold snap that hit us right before the turn of the year. So we should be good to go for some excellent fishing in February and March.  The best fishing for big trout often occurs on warm days between fronts.  Some of the best catches will be in shallow water close to the pot holds and drains on the King Ranch Shoreline.  Soft plastic rigged on a light jig head works well. If the water is off colored try using a darker plastic with a bright tail, this should be easier for the fish to see.
