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.

January Fishing Report For Baffin Bay

January is a great month for catching a variety of fish, at least for the people that know how to target them.  When it’s cold, the fishing along the edges of all the channels can be great for targeting eating size trout and redfish.  Using the trolling motor to keep the boat in the correct depth and casting to the edge usually works best.  In the coldest weather, the fish will often retreat to the deepest parts of the channels.  So casting soft plastics and retrieving them along the muddy bottoms of the ditches is best.  As temperatures climb, the fish often relate better to the edges of the channels.  So casting lures  toward the shallow humps beside them and pulling them off the ledges works best.  On really warm and sunny days, lots of trout and redfish move up into the grass flats to warm up.  When they do sight casting for them is a lot of fun.  The water this time of year is crystal clear so you can see everything.  Happy New Year Everyone!
