I can't say too much about flyfishing for reds because I just started to learn to flyfish; but I have fished for reds using a baitcaster. I fish around the Galveston area, and have fished in Rockport/Corpus Christi area as well, and just like Acuna says, Tide is most important. I like movement in the tide...either coming in or going out...coming high is normally best. As info only, my sources tell me that San Antonio bay as well as Baffin Bay are HOT for Reds right now. Good Luck
