Watch: Seeing Red

Fly fishing for redfish in South Texas’s Lower Laguna Madre.


South Texas’s Laguna Madre is described as “hypersaline,” meaning it has a higher salt content than the nearby Gulf of Mexico—36 parts per thousand versus 35. With 75 percent of its ecosystem protected under a national wildlife refuge and a national seashore, copious amounts of seagrass, and plenty of prey species, it’s no wonder redfish love the area.

And so do the anglers that pursue them.
