Palm Coast & Flagler Beaches Inshore Redfish

b a

Pellicer Creek

The stretch of northeast Florida shore from Palm Coast in Flagler County down to northern Volusia County is not noted for its inshore angling action. But at either end of this stretch are inland waters that regularly give up redfish.

c

Bulow Creek

To the north is Pellicer Creek, while the southern end is anchored by Bulow Creek. Both yield redfish like the one being hoisted by Capt. Jason Phillips of Phillips Brothers Fishing Charters (www.phillipsbrosfishing.com).

Guadalupe Bass in South Texas

                      1          2

Guadalupe bass are a black bass species found only on the Edward Plateau of south-central Texas. These river fish grow only to weights pushing 3 pounds, but are scrappy fighters and great to catch on a fly rod.  The Guadalupe River State Park just north of San Antonio is a good place to find them. Several rapids broken by deeper pools offer good places to fish.

The average Guadalupe is likely to be in the 10- to 15-inch range, but they are plentiful and usually ready to hit artificial lures and flies. But, be for warned, if fishing the park on a summer weekend, you will have lots of competition from swimmers and tubers!
