What an amazing area full of natural wildlife and serene shorelines. Waters run deep here and this should be a stop if you have a boat,

the world famous laguna madre has certainly lived up to its reputation. i was able to land speckled trout, red fish and flounder all in the same day.

This body of "hypersaline" water is trapped between the gulf and land and ends up saltier than ocean water due to evaporation. Its good for fishing and boating on a calmer surface than the open gulf but some of the coastal areas on the island side can be bug infested during summer months; brings lots of bug spray!

Nothing better, by yourself, with friends, or with a party. This is it! I especially like the early mornings or the afternoons. No sunburn, wonderful breezes and the beauty of the water. Enjoy!

First time here for us. The food was good. I thought the view was beautiful. It is not a place that ou need to dress up for, pretty relaxed atmosphere. Would return again.

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.

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
