Lower Laguna with Capt Ernest Cisneros

It"s Going to be a Good Winter for Fishing

Posted on Saturday, 10/29/11 3:32 pm by capternest
Fishing has been absolutely awesome with limits of trout and reds easily attainable. During the New and Full moon periods water levels have come up considerably and when it has the back lake shorelines have really turned on. Wind ward shorelines have also produced well, redfish are prowling these shorelines early in the morning feeding on little shrimp and medium size pinfish. Throwing small topwaters like a super spook jr has worked like a charm in catching redfish in the 24 to 28 inch slot. When the water has not been so high, the sand and grass transition has been the place to be and if ...

Early July in Lower Laguna Madre

Posted on Thursday, 07/07/11 10:45 am by capternest
Slick calm mornings are currently the norm down south, which means lots of redfish wakes up in the shallows. Redfish have been fairly easy to pattern but sometimes you just have to wait for them to feed. When the fish have not been actively feeding they seem to follow our topwaters with no commitment to eat it. Along with the redfish trout can also be found in the early morning, a few big ones have been caught but for the most part the trout we have been catching have been in 16 to 22 inch range. The best bite has been occurring right as the incoming tide begins to move in the particular we ...

Redfish in Sandy Areas in Lower Laguna

Posted on Monday, 06/13/11 6:20 pm by capternest
Our winds have finally laid down making the fishing or the catching I should say, phenomenal. Our redfish catches have greatly improved when compared to last month's blusterous conditions. A sure way of catching redfish has been to target areas with slightly deeper potholes. Redfish are using these sandy areas to station themselves during the heat of the day and they are very willing to take a Kelley Wiggler in Plum/Blue Metal flake on a 1/8 oz jig head. Along with good redfish numbers our trout have been fairly easy to pattern. Deeper guts and grass beds have been the top producers for ...

Top Water bite is on in Lower Laguna Madre

Posted on Friday, 05/20/11 1:34 pm by capternest
Fishing on the LLM has been terrific, limits of redfish and trout have been fairly common. The key depth for us has been right around thigh to waist deep water. Topwaters have been working really well for us, like the mid size skitter walks in white and pink, super spook jr's in red head - white body and also the bone color has been drawing alot of attention. Fish have been abundant in many places but the key to getting on a good bite has been timing. A moving tide on the flats has been the ticket to getting these fish to feed. Many of the redfish we catching have been in the upper slot and ...

Lower Laguna 4/12/11

Posted on Wednesday, 04/13/11 11:58 am by capternest
This past week end the winds were blowing pretty hard which made fishing conditions very tough. The beginning of this week the winds finally layed down and the fishing really turned on. Redfish have been up really shallow and topwaters have gotten their attention. The quality and quantity of our trout have been on the upper end, we are catching good numbers and trout in the five to six lbs have come on every trip. When fish are not wanting surfaces baits a Kelly Wiggler rigged on a 1/8 oz jig head has done the trick. Surprisingly surface grass has not been a problem, but in areas near ...

Port Isabel 4/1/11

Posted on Saturday, 04/02/11 1:24 pm by capternest
Here's a report from down south: Fishing as of lately has been really good on quality trout and redfish. Our water has warmed up enough that the topwater bite is on. We have been catching lots of keeper size trout and a few up to six pounds on a variety of topwaters from medium size skitter walks to small size super spook jrs. Redfish have also been very active on top. We are now wet wading and concentrating our efforts in waist to knee deep water, although the bigger fish do seem to be up shallower. Darker worms rigged on 1/8 oz jigged heads have also brought us much success when the surface ...
