Re: Info on Cedar Key/Manatee Springs

Manatee Springs is a great spot to kayak and watch Manatees, but no ramp close by to launch a boat. There is a big parking lot near the spring where I've parked my boat in the past. It's about 35 miles to Cedar Key and that is the best spot for fishing in the area. Late May is pretty good for fishin...

Re: Apalachee Bay Nautical Map

Thanks but I don't see lat/long lines. Are you looking for electronic or paper? The lat/long lines are displayed on the edge of the paper chart. If you want to measure between the lines you need some old school tools! https://www.captainsnautical.com/collections/course-plotting-tools/products/130-g...

Re: Alligator Point/Panacea pointers

I've never fished in the Alligator Harbor but have been around Bald Point a pretty good bit. Like MudDucker said about the boat ramp at the bridge toward the gulf there are lots of good spots. If you have kayaks you can put them in at Bald Point or at the little boat ramp halfway down the peninsula....

Re: 2023 State Gag season limited to Sept. 1 – Nov. 10

I don't fish for grouper much, but that seems like a big difference from the current open season.

I've looked in a few spots that I've never looked in before and found some, but haven't got close to a limit yet. The ones in the picture and the ones I've found seem to have plenty of meat!
