Laguna Madre and Queen Isabella Causeway
July 5, 2018
Happy Fourth of July, the bay fishing has remained good. Catching speckled trout on live and artificial baits. Speckled trout are hanging along deeper water drop offs alongside grass patches. Redfish are cruising shallow grass flats. Fresh cut bait and soft plastic artificial worms worked across the sand holes seems to be the ticket on the redfish. Black drum are hanging in the deeper water and should be showing up on days when the wind dies off. Still a good time to get the family out on the water.

Big Redfish have been good on live bait in the deeper waters. Soft plastics have been effective on the drift for reds and trout also. On windy days, fishing the color change has made for some great fishing for reds, trout, and drum using a popping cork. On days where the water is not holding to much floating grass after a day or two of calm winds we’ve been able to work our top water lures for some great blow ups and have put some good fish in our ice box. Over all, the fishing has been great. So let’s get out there and do some fishing!
