Wading The Flats


The beautiful shallow water of the Laguna Madre is a great place to wade for tailing redfish. Redfish continuously cruise the crystal clear flats of the Laguna Madre stopping when they find a shrimp or crab to snack on. I will put you in casting distance of these redfish and give you the opportunity to present the fly. Wading is usually done in 10 to 18 inches of water, the shallow flats of the Laguna Madre make it easy to stalk and sight cast tailing redfish. Generally you won't have to cast more than 45-50 feet, and often 30-40 feet will do. First thing in the morning is the best time for finding tailing fish, however you can see tailing fish throughout the day. As the sun rises higher your chances for sight casting fish will improve, especially for those fish that are not tailing. Both methods make challenging and exciting fishing.


Sight Casting From The Boat


Fly fishing from the boat is what we do 90 % of the time it is both productive and comfortable. There are many advantages of fishing from the boat, I think the most helpful is height. From the boat it is easier to see the fish and also see which direction the fish are moving. It gives you the time you need to make your cast and place the fly in front of the fish. The morning is the best time for finding tailing fish, however you can see tailing fish throughout the day. As the sun rises higher your chances for sight casting fish will improve, especially for those fish that are not tailing.
