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

The bay fishing has been producing some nice fish catches. Some schools of redfish are popping up on the less windy days. Some of these schools are full of oversized redfish. Still caching speckled trout on both live and artificial baits. Color changes that have margarita colored water is a good place to locate speckled trout drift fishing. Great time to get out on the waters around South Padre. Weather is starting to change and the fish are active.
