Yes, it is winter, but the fishing (and temperatures) remain hot up and down the Texas coast. In addition to good numbers of speckled trout, redfish, flounder, black drum and other species being reported, trophy trout are beginning to become more common catches as well. Now through March is prime trophy trout time and the conditions are shaping up for an outstanding start to coastal fishing in 2020. #texasfishing #saltwaterfishing #speckledtrout #redfish #flounder #blackdrum
Mike Sotelo and his dad, Oscar, teamed up to complete a South Texas Grand Slam on a recent trip with Port Isabel guide Capt Gencho Buitureira. Their slam was highlighted by this 35 1/2-inch snook. Capt Gencho says fishing in the Lower Laguna Madre has been hot and is only getting better as fall approaches. #speckledtrout #redfish #snook #flounder #portisabel #southpadreisland #southtexasslam #saltwaterfishing #texasfishingreports #texassaltwaterfishing
Capt. Kevin McCoy of Reel McCoy Guide Service says fishing has been on fire in the Coastal Bend region for the past few weeks. McCoy expects the hot bite to continue as summer blends to fall over the next month or so. #lonestarsalt #portaransas #texassaltwaterfishing #texastroutfishing #saltwaterfishing #aransaspass #speckledtrout #redfish
Hector Guevara and his daughter Carolina show off a nice Lower Laguna Madre redfish they caught on a recent trip with Capt. Gencho Buitureira Jr. Although Deep South Texas is receiving some heavy rainfall this week, hot fishing should resume as soon as the rain subsides later this week. #texassaltwaterfishing #lowerlagunamadre #portisabel #lonestarsalt #saltwaterfishing #texasfishingreports #redfish #southpadreisland
Definitely a top 3 in days of sight casting reds. We never had to set up the tower, because the large school of 100 fish stayed on the surface all day.
Throwing gold, black, and copper spoons, we had several triple hook ups and countless doubles. So much fun watching reds tail and float on the surface. The weather was great, plenty of sun and 5 - 15 mph ENE winds makes the water clear - good enough to see the orange ball moving around!

According to Port Isabel guide Capt Gencho Buitureira Jr, fishing in the Lower Laguna Madre has been hot as of late. Gencho says his clients have been boating a variety of species, including flounder, black drum, redfish, speckled trout and snook. This multi-species action should hold up through the end of summer. #texassaltwaterfishing #lowerlagunamadre #lonestarsalt #portisabel #speckledtrout #blackdrum #redfish #snook #flounder
Great day one with this North Texas family. Took us a bit to find a consistant bite, and when we did it was all smiles. Crotch to waist deep grass beds with rafts of bait, throwing DSL’s Victorious Secret and Strawberry Wine did the trick.
The North wind was giving us trouble on day two, not many bites on the trout. But, did manage to have a customer land his PB on a DSL strawberry wine, Fins Braid 20# windtamer, and a 7’6” Waterloo salinity. The trout was 25”@4.25#, she w
Fishing in the Lower Laguna Madre has been on fire since Memorial Day Weekend. Anglers are racking up easy limits of both speckled trout and redfish. Several jumbo-sized specks have been reported as well. Additionally, tarpon and snook fishing has been going strong. From all indications, this should be an outstanding summer of fishing in the waters surrounding Port Isabel, South Padre Island and Port Mansfield. #lowerlagunamadre #speckledtrout #redfish #texasfishingreports #l
Fishing has been good in the Lower Laguna Madre over the past week. Anglers have been catching lots of solid speckled trout -- including some top end fish in the 28-30 inch range. Bull reds are good at the jetties and slot reds are all over the flats, as are black drum. Tarpon fishing has been phenomenal at the jetties and the snook bite has been outstanding. Pictured above is Capt. Gencho Buitureira with a nice snook he caught this week. #snook #lowerlagunamadre #texasfishin
The plan came together today. Our first wade over thigh to waist deep sand pockets produced good numbers of trout. The water was chalky green and the baits that worked best were White Ice, Dirty Tequila, and Pumpkinseed. Lunch time we decided to walk knee deep flats looking for cruising reds, and after an hour or so of walking, 3 pods of 10-15 reds showed up in front of us. Gold spoons and Pumpkinseed is what we threw, but I don’t believe it really mattered! Lol Give me a ca
