Fishing The Lower Laguna Madre

The southernmost tip of Texas is home to one of the most diverse fisheries in North America, the Lower Laguna Madre. Being situated on the same Latitude as Miami, Florida, we have a lot of similarities in common when it comes to climate and habitat for a fishery, we boast the highest percentage of seagrass meadows in any Texas estuary and bay waters. These seagrass meadows offer prime habitat for predatorial fish such as redfish.

Redfish can be caught in many ways; my favorite is with a Z-Man EZ ShrimpZ in Laguna Shrimp color. I spent years fishing the shallow bay looking at different forage redfish eat and noticed our shrimp have a different coloration than most. I worked with Z-Man for a few months developing the Laguna Shrimp color combination before it was finalized and let me tell you, these fish love it down here. A light action rod with a Redfish Eye jig head in a 3/16oz paired with a Laguna Shrimp EZ ShrimpZ will guarantee your catch.

The Laguna Madre also offers a variety of stringer such as, speckled trout, flounder, snook and triple tail which makes throwing the correct lures important. I have had countless trips where I have been throwing Slim SwimZ in Pearl color that mimic our glass minnows which happen to move up shallow during the winter and early spring. Scented PogyZ in any color thrown through the turtle grass can provide a great trout or flounder bite. Finesse baits work just as well, especially  Z-Man Trick ShotZ in Bad Shad color. They provide excellent action for picky redfish and flounder. If you have not fished the southern coast of Texas, I highly recommend giving our fishery a try!
