Fishing Guides Charters in Corpus Christi Texas


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 catching trophy trout and redfish. When you’re fishing the flats in Corpus Christi you have a chance of a Grand Slam. A Grand Slam is catching redfish, trout and flounder all in the same day. In Corpus Christi we are surrounded by miles and miles of pristine, crystal clear water, beautiful wildlife, big trout and schools of tailing redfish willing to take a well-placed lure.  Fishing the flats in Corpus Christi is like no other in the Texas.  The thrill of casting into a big school of giant tailing redfish is second to none. Come spend a day fishing the shallow flats of the Laguna Madre and you will be hooked for life.

The weather in Corpus Christi is great year round, great Spring, Summer and Fall with mild Winters.  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.

In the days prior to giving this report, the tide levels in the Upper Laguna Madre rose quickly, back to values well above normal. Now that the tide has gushed back in, we’ve got clear ocean water all over the Lagoon between Marker 27 and Baffin. The ultra-clear water makes it easier to sight-cast, of course.  Lately, we’ve been catching limits of redfish by locating the schools and throwing right at them.  This will continue to be easy with the high tides.  We also have seen some really big trout and have consistent shots at them while we are targeting the redfish.  One thing the high tides do is displace some of the fish well into areas normally too shallow for fishing.  In places like Baffin Bay and the Meadows, the fish will sometimes venture up onto the shallowest parts of the sand bars when conditions are like this in spring.
