Laguna Madre Outfitters is South Texas’s premiere outfitter specializing in fly and light-tackle sight-fishing. Strategically located in Arroyo City, halfway between South Padre Island and Port Mansfield, they are able to effectively fish the entire Lower Laguna Madre, which encompasses the southernmost sixty miles of the Texas coastline.
Laguna Madre Outfitters is owned and operated by Captain Ben Paschal. Ben was raised in Texas where he picked up a fly rod at age eleven, started tying flies at age thirteen, and began working at fly shops when he was eighteen. With a guiding career that began at the age of nineteen, Ben has guided fly fishermen around the world in Colorado, Alaska, Argentine Tierra Del Fuego, and Chilean Patagonia.
Full day 8+ hours guided fly fishing on Texas’s Lower Laguna Madre. All fishing is done out of technical poling skiffs or by wading and is primarily sight-fishing to redfish, speckled trout, tarpon, snook, and others in the ultra shallow Lower Laguna Madre.
If you stay in our waterfront rental house, we provide dockside skiff pick up each morning.
A 5 star waterfront home (4 bedroom/3 bath, lighted fishing dock loaded with trout at night, washer/dryer, flatscreen TVs, etc) in Arroyo City is available for customers to rent for $125 per night. Also, an airport shuttle can be arranged if needed; we are 25 minutes from the Harlingen airport, which is serviced by Southwest. A cook can be scheduled to prepare meals upon request.
A Texas saltwater fishing license is required and can be purchased online.
