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.

June Fishing Report For Baffin Bay

In June, a variety of excellent options exist for anglers targeting redfish and trout in the Laguna Madre and Baffin Bay.  In the Up Laguna Madre, areas around the mouth of the Land Cut and just north of there produce good catches in both reds and trout.  All the rocks in the shallows along the west shoreline hold fish on a daily basis, as do some of the spoils lying to the east.  The really shallow flats like those around the Middle Grounds and Rocky are also productive at times, especially when tide levels fall out.  On those flats, sight-casting is easier than on the spoils or along the west shore.  In Baffin, all the major rock formations like Cat-head produce plenty of trout, especially when winds are somewhat light.  The shallow parts of the flats associated with those rocks and in the Badlands are usually loaded with reds.  Farther north, the deeper waters around Bird Island produce good catches, mostly trout, for folks who don’t want to run so far south.  We’re heading into the time when the flats on the Corpus Bay side of Demit Island become really productive too.
