Light-tackle anglers and fly fishers are always amazed at what the shallow, crystal clear waters of the Lower Laguna Madre have to offer. Of course, favorite Texas inshore species such as speckled trout, redfish and flounder are available. However, so are exotic inshore species such as snook, tarpon, mangrove snapper, lookdowns and pompano.


Capt. Danno guides clients for specks, reds, flounder, snook and mangrove snapper all year long. Tarpon (April - Nov.), kingfish (June - Oct.), and shark (April - Nov.) are targeted when found in fishable concentrations.


When clients are willing, Capt. Danno will also target such hard-fighting brutes as jack crevalle, Spanish mackerel, ladyfish, bonito, and black drum.


Most of the time, Capt. Danno and his clients will be sight-casting either from the boat or while wading the shallow flats of the Laguna Madre. However, anglers targeting snook and mangrove snapper will spend much of their trip fishing around structure and fishermen hoping for tarpon or kingfish will spend the day along the beachfront and in the Brazos Santiago Pass.
