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

The fishing around South Padre Island has been decent to good throughout the past weeks. Catching solid speckled trout on both live and artificial baits. Artificial worms that match natural colors and shrimp and mullet patterns seem to be producing bites. Fresh cut mullet or ballyhoo rigged up above the grass is working on the redfish. Find the baitfish and the gamefish will be nearby. It’s a great time to get the family out on the water.
