Fishing spots in lower Laguna Madre by boat

So I will be In port Isabell next week and it will be my first trip out on boat there can anyone give me advice on where to try first. I will be docking boat in the Long Island subdivision so somewhere near there to start. I’m a little nervous about going to far becouse it’s my first bay trip. I’m prepared for the fishing part gear and bait and what not just needing ideas on where to start. I have a 21ft Kenner cc not sure how shollow it will run yet. I have been studying a map and got my lowrance ready to go. Thanks for the read

South bay and mexiquita since you're launching out of long island. Tides have been a little high so you should be fine. Just follow the channels to get to the back part of south bay. Then north of the causeway island side, long bar, and spoils will do also. Take it slow and beware of obstructions on the water.

Oh and be very careful if you venture into South Bay. It's really easy to find shell there with your boat and if the tide starts running out, you run out too.

you might want to hire a guide to show you around in your boat at a reasonable price. especially if you plan on fishing there more in the future. cut down on the learning curve and could save a lot of money, if you hit something. food for thought. if you do decide to go this route, try islandsboy on this forum. good luck.

There's been a lot of trout in the lower bay making trout slicks just like our DVD if you got them... some fish around the channel flats as well and mexiquita flats. i wouldn't take your boat into south bay, at least not on plane. With the tide up, you'll be able to at least idle around but if the tide drops back to normal south bay can have a lot of shallow stuff.

If you have a non tunnel hull I would not even think about going beyond the channels in South Bay. The oyster beds in back will tear up the shallowest hulls at low tide. There may not be a more difficult place to run in the LM for someone not familiar with the area if the water is not clear. You can catch plenty of trout west of the spoil banks north of the bridge.

snook

Do not venture into the south bay area unless u know ur way around or have someone with you that does. Fish east or west of the intercostal with live shrimp or plastics under a popping cork and drift north depending on the winds and you will catch some fish. Spoons work too. The edge of the intercostal to about a 1/4 mile east or west will work good luck!
