Redfish, speckled trout and alligator gar can be caught from the interior waterways and shoreline of El Sauz Ranch.

The nearby docks and marinas of Port Mansfield are within 10 miles of our hunting lodges providing convenient access to the exceptional fishing opportunities that abound in the shallow waters of the Laguna Madre and the deeper waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Port Mansfield is a world-class fishing destination and has been noted as one of the 10 best fishing areas in the nation. Convenient access to the Laguna Madre puts wade and drift fisherman on speckled trout, flounder and redfish in just minutes.

Port Mansfield's channel offers the only access to the Gulf of Mexico between Corpus Christi and Port Isabel. A short nine-mile run puts you in highly productive offshore waters with opportunities for sailfish, marlin, tarpon, ling, mackerel and snapper.

Local fishing guides offer full-service fishing trips on the Laguna Madre as well as the Gulf of Mexico.
