Made a trip to a new area I have been meaning to get out to for nearly a year now. Shell Creek is a freshwater creek system off of the Peace River in Punta Gorda. I had heard good reports of panfish and bass in the past from this location and put it up on my list of places to try out. The main reason it took so long to get out to it is that it is nearly an hour drive from my house. I finally decided to make the drive, and I am glad I did as there were many panfish and a few bass to be had on the fly.

I was out the day before he was. Bummed for him because it was going off when I was there, guess he had a relatively slow day yesterday.
