Baffin Bay Fishing Seasons

It may be quieter on the water than usual, but that just means there’s more fish for you to have to yourself. Head out in winter and battle Jack Crevalle, Snook, and even some early Snappers to get your fix.
Much the same as January, you can tell the season hasn’t quite got going yet. That doesn’t mean there’s no fishing to be had, though, with plenty of tough-fighting and delicious fish making their way through the bay.
You’ll feel things start to heat up in the water with a flurry of activity in March. As the Jacks make their way out of the bay, Snappers join them , giving you the chance to land plenty of delicious fish. 
The season is almost upon us, with more and more boats taking to the bay. Expect some exciting action as some of the bigger fish come out to play, giving you the chance to test your fishing skills properly. 
Now that’s more like it! Summer is almost here and plenty of warm water fish make their way through, ready to set up camp for the season. Take advantage of the early Tarpon and Trout for a real angling treat.
Anglers from all over the country flock to Laguna Madre come summer, and for good reason. Get your fish on against beauties like Snook, Tarpon, Snappers, Trout, and many more for your fill of fishing.
As the weather hits its peak, so does the fishing. Expect red-hot fishing in red-hot temperatures, as you explore the bay and lagoon for the widest range of fish available, testing yourself time and time again.
Don't let the crowded waters put you off.. There’s a reason August is such a popular month – and not just because it’s summer. Snook, Tarpon, Flounder, and many more stay for another month. 
With the kids back in school,  Redfish come into the bay in an attempt to escape the busy fishing season. That just means that there’s another exciting species for you to target come September.
There’s no sign of the fish going anywhere, as the water remains full of exciting and delicious species. Jacks make their way back in to keep the fledgling Redfish and Flounder company, ensuring a fun day out.
