If you love water, you will love the Laguna Madre. No matter the time of the day or the condition of the weather, there are people fishing and recreating on the water. Love this area.

A lot of trash around the statue. Couples taking photos and sjowing them with Selena. Not an impressive attraction!

Laguna Madre is a beautiful area where you can fish or just sit back sip and ice cold coffee and enjoy the water and local birds.

Ok all you out of town people do not think about fishing the Laguna Madre or traveling it if you have never been in this area. The best way to fish this area is hire a guide for the first couple times. Ask plenty of questions when the guide takes you out and make sure to watch where and how... More

We rented a condo right on the Laguna Madre. Fishing is excellent, beautiful calm waters. Very nice view to wake up to 2 resident pelicans right out front, very entertaining! Saw a couple of Rosetta Spoonbills on the flats right across from our Condo when we kayaked over. Lots of residents fishing there.

There is a restaurant named Doc's that is pretty and has live music. Service was crazy slow and we waited well over an hour after ordering. Very breezy so bring a light sweater. waiter was super nice. Food was good. Spicier than described on menu.

The Upper Laguna Madre is nothing like the natural beauty of the Lower Laguna Madre. It's full of man-made boat channels, boat houses, and wreckage of all sorts. It has a lot of big power lines and pipelines crisscrossing it. Much of the ULM is what I would classify as "urban" for fisheries, better suited to recreational boating, jet skis,... More

just hit a bad day I guess - a couple of small sea-trout and no redfish on the fly - different from Louisiana redfish areas
