February Fishing Report For Baffin Bay

Fishing for big trout and redfish in February is about as good as it gets for a lure fisherman in the Baffin Laguna Madre system.  When the weather is cold, and strong winds make controlling the boat difficult, wading is a much better option, especially along shorelines which offer protections form the wind.  On these days, fishing lures low and slow is the ticket to a few bites from big fish.  When conditions improve, working shallower areas of the lagoon and in more open parts of Baffin will also produce big fish.  On the warmer days, the fish will often stay in really shallow water, especially if clouds obscure the sun.  Catching them on slow-sinking twitch baits can be pretty easy on some of these days.  If lots of mullet are seen milling around on the surface and jumping, top waters work well too.  Some of the areas where many big trout have been caught over the years hold lots of reds too.  This makes for exciting action, catching upper-slot and oversized reds mixed with trout reaching up to thirty inches or more.
