St. Charles Bay

A small protected bay in the northern most part of the Texas Coastal Bend, St. Charles Bay is local favorite for redfish. Bordered by the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge on the west and the Lamar Peninsula on the east, St. Charles features long grass and sand shorelines broken up up by slews, cuts and creeks that are excellent habitat for redfish looking to ambush small prey.

St. Charles bay is serviced directly by boat ramps in Lamar and in the Pelican Island State Park. Some small boats and kayaks also launch in Cavasso's Creek where it crosses Texas Highway 35, north of Lamar.
