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.

February Fishing Report For Baffin Bay

February is famous for fishing the Upper Laguna Madre and Baffin Bay.  Baffin has produced some giant trout in February, but the action for big trout can be just good or better up and down the Laguna Madre.  Typically, the lagoon has really clear water this time of year.  The bite can be best in low light conditions, when the fish are most active and aren’t so spooky. Perhaps the best way to catch them in broad daylight is to sight cast them shallow clear water.  Big trout are easiest to see when they’re over sandy bottom, they look almost black against the white sand.  Casting well out in front of them and moving the lure into their field of sight works best.  Most people experienced at this game start by making casts which don’t bring the lure within inches of the fish’s face.  They start a bit farther away and work the lure closer on the subsequent casts, if the fish doesn’t react.  When trying to catch a big trout in places like Rocky Slough and the King Ranch this time of year, we also catch plenty of slot redfish.
