Default Tigre Lagoon Vermilion Bay

Does anyone know how deep the actual lagoon is? And has anyone ever caught in the lagoon (what, if so?) I have heard stories about catching right there and it seems plausible after looking at it on google earth, I just dont want to run up on 6 inches of water in the so called lagoon. Thanks fellas!

I fished it once about 6 years ago, had a duck lease close by, anyway, really shallow, however it was in the fall and the tides were running lower, plus there was a north wind if I remeber right. Can't say I've heard of anyone catching in there, but I've been wrong once before so you never know! LOL When in doubt - Idle slow! that way you can still back up. Good luck if you go.

Default shallow

i have never been in it from the bay side, but the canal going in from the intracoastal is extremely shallow, i have caught a redfish in the canal going in but never made it into tiger lagoon itself, though i have heard of people fishing it and catching a few reds but you have to know where you are going, or like muddrunner said take your time so you don't run up on a mud flat, or if you have a mud motor to scout it out let me know how you do

Yes shallow it is, but i dont think apache should be able to keep any one out of there, that is not a man made water way, but i am not in politics

I though tigre lagoon was private land that is why they have all the posted signs all over.

I thought being a natural waterway affected by the tides meant it was public waters, but i am no expert nor am i a politition so i could be wrong

Yep, Tigre Lagoon is VERY shallow even on high tide. Passed through it plenty times but always trimmed up and hammered down. Actually got to it a few times where you would actually have to climb up the mud from the channel to get to the bottom due to the water being so low.
