No Waters like your Home Waters: Ernest Cisneros – Laguna MadreUncategorized
The Laguna Madre is one of the most distinguished waters in the United States. As the Rio Grande winds along the southern border till it spills into the Gulf of Mexico. But this river doesn’t simply dump into the gulf but deltas into a lagoon with barrier islands, the South Padre Islands. This stretching lagoon consists of vast swaths of skinny water, some of the largest saltwater flats in the world! 90% of the seafloor is reachable with the simple push of a button, or by simply deploying any Power-Pole anchor.
Born and raised in Brownsville, TX, the waters of the Laguna Madre have always been home for Ernest.
Since his youth, Ernest has waded these waters and over time, grew into a weekend warrior taking advantage of every free moment, and today he’s transitioned to become a full-time guide. The call of the water has never been far from Ernest’s ears.
Before his time as a full-time guide, Ernest split his time between guiding and teaching at the local Brownsville school. Similar to how fishing is in Ernest’s DNA, teaching is the other half of his double helix. Ernest has found his sweet spot in guiding, providing him the opportunity to continue teaching.
In addition to his desire to teach people how to fish the Laguna Madre like a seasoned vet, he has taken on the noble task of educating clients on how to preserve these waters for generations to come. As a founding member of Empty Stringers Catch and Release Program (https://www.facebook.com/kwigglers/), he has taken preservation personally and is sharing his love and respect for these waters to all.
