The Laguna Madre has always provided for some great fishing. It is home to some of the best game fish and table  fare. Trout have been great with live bait on a bottom rig while anchored. Drum have been good on the drop offs in deep water with live or frozen shrimp on a bottom rig.  This time of the year the winds blow mainly from the south providing for some sandy water causing a color change in the water for some good fishing in these waters. Red and trout are great fishing the color change with live shrimp on a popping cork while drifting on windy days. Reds have also been good fishing with cut bait on  bottom rigs. Your not going to catch any fish while sitting on the sofa so get out on the water. Captain Ruben Garcia wishing everyone tight lines! See you out on the water. Click here to download the Fishing Almanac.
