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

The bay-fishing is picking up as the weather continues to get warmer. Lots of bait is migrating into the Lower Laguna Madre. Speckled trout fishing has been good. Catching some nice solid trout on live bait as well as soft plastic artificial worms. Darker colored worms with chartreuse tails seem to be the ticket. Redfishing has been better in the afternoon once the wind starts blowing. Don’t let the scattered rain keep you from fishing. The bite is only going to get better as the weather and bait migration continue to heat up!
