Baffin Bay and Laguna Madre Fishing Trips

Baffin Bay is known as a premiere saltwater fishing destination for anglers of all ages and experience levels. Our Bay and knowledgeable guide service allows visitors to have their own special experience. We are home to a plethora of schooling bull redfish, as well as more state record trout than any other Texas bay systems.

FISHING METHODS

The Paradise Guide Services fishing season runs from March - September. Our mission is to give you the best saltwater experience you have ever had as we hunt for trout, redfish, and drum throughout the bay system.

 

Although there are many methods to catching these Baffin Beauties, we prefer to use live croaker on a free-line to get the most out of our fishing trips. It allows constant action, and we can use this method in rocks, deep or shallow water and wading. One of our favorite techniques is utilizing the unique rock pattern that Baffin Bay has hiding below the surface. The structures these rocks create make the perfect hiding spot for trophy trout and bull reds.

 

In the beginning of spring, we tend to use live shrimp, as we are waiting for croaker to become available, seasoned, and grow to the optimum size to catch your trophy fish. As we reach the end of spring, generally April or May, our croaker season will be coming into full swing! With that being said, we will fish ANY method or means our customers prefer. Whether it’s free-lining croaker, wading a shoreline with artificial lures, live shrimp under a popping cork, or even dead bait on the bottom for black drum, we will strive to provide the best saltwater fishing experience you’ve ever had!
