CORPUS CHRISTI FISHING GUIDES ON BAFFIN BAY - LAND CUT

LAGUNA MADRE

March is a good month for targeting big trout and redfish in the shallow waters of the upper Laguna Madre. In the clear water of the Laguna Madre sight casting becomes more of an option.  Catching redfish and trout on the fly is also more of a realistic plan on good days.  On the days with light to medium winds it’s possible to see redfish and trout milling around in water less than knee deep on some of the flats and shorelines between the Causeway and Baffin Bay.  Watching trout and redfish strike in such places is about as much fun as fishing can get in Baffin Bay.  The water isn’t quite as clear most of the time, so fishing more conventional methods works better for the most part. Historically, some giant trout mix with slot and over size redfish on muddy grass flats in parts of Baffin this time of year.  Locating them often means keying on signs of nervous bait fish. Using a stealthy approach and making lots of casts with soft plastic on light jig heads around potholes, thick grass beds and rocks on the flats can produce the trout of a lifetime.
