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

The bay fishing has been good throughout the past week. Catching speckled trout on both soft plastics and live bait. Trout seem to be hanging in deeper water. Some redfish and black drum are being caught. A few schools of reds and black drum are moving around the channels. Flounder are showing up in the usual hot spots. Great time of the year to get the kids hooked up on some nice fish .
