Re: St. Marks 1/13/02

So you were in the St Marks river, or out on the creeks off the flats? Sounds great Stayed in the river and hit all the st marks feeder creeks. Some had lots of fish and some had a few, but almost every one of them had something. I'm surprised we didn't catch a flounder. We made it as far as marker...

St. Marks 1/13/02

The boss let me have the morning off to go fishing, as long as I made it to work by 1300. It was 7AM, cold but clear and a slight wind, but not bad. Me and my buddy stayed in the river tossing various lures to include mirrodines and Paul Browns. We hit creek after creek on the rising tide. The fishi...

Looking back on this old post was a blast. I wish my old buddy Louis still lived here.

St Marks 12/31

The boss let me off of work at 11:00 and I already had the boat at work and hooked up ready to go. I got to the fort ramp around 11:25 and saw plenty of boaters coming in from the dense fog. After chatting with a few people who said that the bite was really off, I motored out at about 15 mph watchin...

St Marks 12/24

Got to the ramp around 7:15 am on a decent outgoing tide. It sure was a chilly ride out to the lighthouse, and I was glad I brought my thermos of coffee. I decided to head east and beat the outgoing tide to get into a few creeks. I threw mirrolures at the first spot which produced about a dozen trou...

Re: What was I doing wrong on Sunday?

I like a good outgoing tide to concentrate fish. Moving water is your best friend. When I fish a bar, structure or the like, I just dont throw shallow to the bar, I try to survey the water flow and ledges. These provide good ambush points if your baits are presented naturally. With this clear water...

St Marks 12/17 night trip

Hit the water Friday afternoon about 1pm with two buddies Brian and Marty. Hit creek mouths on the last of high tide (1:47 pm) and into low tide (6:37 pm). We caught trout on live shrimp on bobbers, but lures produced bigger trout and some nice surprise hard fighting Bluefish. We fished the high tid...

Re: St. Marks 12/11--12/12

Nice report. We are having an unusually warm and dry early winter. You must have local knowledge and a very shallow draft boat to have fished that area this weekend. The backcountry does pretty good and I sure dont speed to many places thats for sure. the south wind on low tide helped tremendously ...

St. Marks 12/11--12/12

Fished various creeks from The lighthouse to the Econfina. The trout and red bite both days was superb. I used mainly Yozuri and Mirrolures, and with such a great bite, was able to experiment with color variants. The same baits in different colors produced (or did not) incredibly different results. ...

Re: Trolling strategies

I continue on my way and fight the fish at the same speed he bit on. About halfway to the boat i will back of the throttle once i am sure he is clear of the structure I caught him on.

St Marks 5 22,-23-24

Fished Friday after work and all day Saturday and Sunday. It was windy all 3 days with weird times that it died down for 20 or 30 minutes then picked up again. Water clarity was about a C to C+ and the seagrass doesn't look too great for mid May in my opinion. The bite was so so Friday and it was to...

Pro line with 300 e-tec for trade

I have a 1989 Proline 23 ft walkaround with a 2011 etec 300 horsepower motor. The motor has a code and I haven't been able to start it. It has been sitting since last summer I do not really have the money to take this pain to get fixed so I would like to trade it for a small 16 to 18 ft Jon Boat. It...
