St Marks 3/20-21

Postby doomtrpr_z71 » March 21st, 2020, 10:23 pm

Well since the great COVID scare of 2020 has us out of the field, we decided to telework to St Marks. Even though our resident plant pathologist was late as expected, spirits were high.

Image

We found the trout relatively quickly....

Image

Image

Then things got sketchy

Image

Luckily it was just a loose access hatch mixed with backing the boat through some chop and the bilge pump got us dry again. Funny thing we were surrounded by boats when we started and all left pretty quickly.

Image

But the fish were slow and steady keeping the good times rolling

Image

Image

And a great end to a beautiful day

Image

With a great "takeout" meal

All in all a great day, 11 keeper trout and one keeper spanish, very few shorts, only 4, we should have had our 15 keepers but my netman was lacking. The fish were in 3.5-4ft, and were caught either on a iguana daiquiri trout trick or sexy penny shrimp in the rock garden near black rock.

Image

We did manage to find one of stoney bayous namesakes

Image

After a good nights sleep, we ran back to the light house in great spirits, to be quite disappointed.

Image

They tried it and barely floated their jonboat

Image

Apparently I wasn't the only one that remembered more water at the ramp at a -0.1 low tide as quite a few people came up to the ramp to turn around and this guy made the comment that the people making tide predictions were phoning it in as it looked more like a -1.0ft low tide.

Image

We decided to head to the waffle house instead of putting in at the fort since we were limited on time and ended up having to go to the one in moultrie to be able to dine in. All in all a great trip to get away from the stupidity of the coronavirus panic

:thumbup: :thumbup: Thanks for the report, sounds like they bit good for yall. We tried to launch at Aucilla yesterday morning and had the same problem, low water and it was misting rain. Ended up at Keaton and had plenty of water with sunny weather, plus about 100 boats trying to launch! :wink:

It was low yesterday, but I think the .1 was accurate from what I've seen at -1.0

Good fishing!

It was a great trip, that was actually the first time I've been to St Mark's in two years as we normally go to steinhatchee. Seeing pictures of Keaton reminds me why I stay away from that ramp.
