Target Species You’ll Fish For

Baffin Bay is a year-round fishery for some of the best trout and redfish fishing in Texas – In fact, it’s legendary for it!

The winter and early spring months see some of our largest trout being caught, as these months lead up to the fishes’ spawning period in late spring, and the females have packed on the pounds leading up to that event.

In addition to these two prize gamefish, black drum, flounder and sheepshead make regular appearances.

All of the species of gamefish caught in Baffin Bay make for challenging but exciting fishing for youths, novices and expert anglers alike!

Fishing Techniques

On our Baffin Bay light-tackle fishing charters, we typically either drift fish from the boat or slip into the shallow water and wade the flats while blind and sight casting. While both techniques are successful, there’s a special place in our hearts for wading – as not only do we feel it’s more productive but the direct connection to nature is unforgettable.

And there’s simply nothing like battling a gator trout or bull redfish while standing in shin-deep water!

Rods, Bait and Tackle

On our Baffin Bay fishing charters, we encourage you to bring your own rod and fishing gear – including waders, packs, and any special tackle you’d like.

If you’d prefer, our guides are happy to provide all of the rods, tackle and artificial lures you’ll need for the day’s fishing.

Regarding bait, we mostly fish our charters with artificial lures including top-waters, suspended lures and soft plastics. The main reason we don’t fish live bait often is both availability and the fact that we catch just as many fish on artificial!

If you’d prefer to fish live bait, please feel free to discuss with your guide and depending on availability & market price – they’ll make every effort to accommodate you.
