Lower Laguna Madre Fishing Report By Blast to Cast Captain Mike Knox

 

The bay fishing has remained good through the past week. Catching some nice speckled trout and redfish on live and artificial baits. Speckled trout have been hanging along the deeper water transitions. Both live bait and soft plastics have been producing good fish. Redfishing has been a little tougher but still catching some out of the shallow grass flats on plastics and fresh cut bait once the wind picks up. The weather for this next week is calling for some rain, but the fishing should remain decent. Good time to get the kids out in the water.
