Hi All! Debra here with TexasFlats.net, and I wanted to share with you some useful resources on Flats fishing I found. Most people learn to fish on the flats here in Texas from friends and family. But, if you’ve got no one to teach you there are many places online willing to lend you a helping hand. Even if you’re an experienced angler, you can always get the help of weather and tide reports.
So, here are some useful resources to help you navigate the fishing flats.
The Flats Guide is a useful Facebook page that is all about fishing in Texas flats. Here, members can share their experiences, photos, and upload videos. This is a great community to join if fishing is your passion.
Another helpful site is the Texas Weekend Angler. It is specific to Texas flats style fishing and even has helpful tips such as the best approaches, how to deal with grass, beating the edges, and more. Whether you’re drifting, poling, or wading, this site will give you some best practices to get the most out of your fishing experience.
A nice forum to be a part of is FishingTexasOnline.com which has board for Texans, specifically. I believe they have temporarily moved their board to Facebook, but are a great resource and will probably be back up soon. Check them out! Fishing League Worldwide has tips on flats fishing featuring world-renowned experts, Andrew Bostick and David Walker.
