Re: St Marks 10/23

Yesterday the water was 69.5 degrees and I'm sure you had issues with the wind in a kayak! We only caught one catfish.

Great report! Nothing beats some fresh fried mullet, red roe, eggs and grits for breakfast!

Re: St. Marks River - 12/4/21

Nice report! I think the water temp around there 2 weeks ago was 64. Must be cooling off more on the flats.
