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
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
Despite dodging a few much needed rain showers, the topwater bite was great. Both trout and reds crushed it walking over knee to thigh deep sand pockets.
Once the wind laid between storms we, switched to DSL strawberry wine and Mirrodines. Walking thigh deep to waist deep we had a good mix of trout from 16 to 25 inches, redfish were 22 to 24 inches. #wadefishing #SanAntonioBay #texassaltwaterfishing #lonestarsalt #saltwaterfishing #speckledtrout #texasfishingreports
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!

Slow and steady won the race today in these post spawn conditions. The boys grinded through 100s of small male trout to find their keeper fish.
It was kind of a good teaching tool for the newcomers to lure fishing. They learned quick and understood how the trout wanted it presented.
We fished a wide range of depths over sand/grass, as well as some oyster shell . Our best baits today were DSL’s Strawberry Wine, Kickin’ Chicken, and Victorious Secret.

Summer fishing is sizzling in Deep South Texas as evidenced by this catch of kingfish taken by kayak guide Miguel Cruz from the beachfront waters of South Padre Island.

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
Fun last couple of days. We tried many different areas from shell to shorelines. Each spot produced a good handful of fish, but by mid-day the bite fell off. This is to be expected this time of the year, with winds that die and the water temps rising.
Today when it went slick we found 4 small pods of reds to keep us busy. It is always fun chasing these golden fish down the bank.
Best bait over the last 2 days has been Victorious Secret super model, and also managed a few
