Had 3 over 20 23inches and rest 17.5 inches and up to 20. great day in spite of the wind and it did blow.......white caps and rolling waves. :smt006 :smt006

I’m somewhat new to the flats/bay fishing. We have Stayed at shell island fish camp in the past. The weekend of 4/21 we are staying at Econfina resort. Can I get a 21’ Sea chaser boat into the bay from that resort or would it be better to trailer it over to the public ramp in St. Marks? Have read the obstructions at the mouth of the Econfina river can be challenging.

Thanks in advance

The high tide is in the morning at 0730 is next weekend. The low tide is 1.5 around noon . you should have enough water all day if you know anything about econfina. I run a 22 deep vee 250 yami out of econfina grouper fishing but beware there are rocks everywhere close in and the channel isn't marked. Would be better to follow someone out the first time. also depends on the wind north wind and the tides will be below predicted. Make a south turn as you pass river channel run due south is the way we run out of the river. There is an oyster bar on the right past the channel marker marked with a pvc pipe.

Man that’s a long way to trailer when your staying on the water. Someone that fishes there more will hopefully chime in, but I’m pretty sure if you have 1.5’ of water you can get in and out. Just follow someone that knows how to get out and follow your bread crumb trail back. Watch your tides. There are a few rocks, but not as bad as aucilla. Good luck, hope y’all wear em out

Thanks guys, I will try and hook up with someone at the resort and follow them out. I’ll be in a sea foam color sea chaser with a t-top if anyone on here wants to say hello. Looking forward to the weekend.

I have a 22' Sea Chaser with a 150 Yamaha. We go out of Econfina all of the time. I will admit it scared me to death the first time I saw a very low tide at Econfina. It's really not that bad if you don't go out on low tide. Just give the river some time to rise and you will be just fine.

Thanks guys, we’re going to check it out Friday afternoon after I find a bait store that has live shrimp. Looking forward to spending some time on the flats Friday afternoon for some trout and Saturday morning hitting a reef or two for a grouper with cut bait.

How do you like that sea chaser? We just upgraded to a 2018 21lx with a 150 Suki on it. This will be its maiden voyage to the gulf.

I just upgraded to the 22' Sea Chaser. I really like this boat, and I do have a jack plate. The main thing about the Econfina is watch out for the rocks that are marker. They are marked for a reason. Tight lines and be safe!
