Re: Bainbridge to Apalach

If possible make time to cut over into the dead lakes. It's approx 2/3 of the way down. That was beautiful. Good fishing also.
Have Fun and be safe

Re: Bainbridge to Apalach

I made the trip approx 10 years ago and fished my way down there. I took 2 days to get there and slept on a beach area about halfway down the river. Be careful of shallow areas. They sneak up on you pretty quick in some spots. It's a beautiful trip but make sure you are prepared. A lot of places hav...

I needed that. Just laughed my ass off at the mental image of a bunch of flaming armadillos running around setting crap on fire.

I love that pic of your wife fighting that fish with the baby strapped to her.

Re: Fish finder advice needed

I will add my 2 cents worth. I have a lowrance and can attest to their horrendous customer service. When I first purchased my unit 3 years ago it would not hold bottom. After working with support for a few weeks it was finally determined I needed to send the unit back for repair/replacement. 5 weeks...

Re: Apalachicola River

I made the run from Lake Seminole to the bay about 8 or 9 years ago. Took my time and fished my way down camping on a beach about halfway down overnight. Fantastic trip. The river does have hazards to include logs/stumps/shallow areas. Fishing was pretty good for me but I primarily focused on cats. ...

Re: 24 in Gag at Rotary Reef

All depends on who checks you. I was checked last year on the flats out of St Marks and the FWC officer measured a fish at 15 1/4 when I mentioned that is my minimum. He said if the mouth is closed and the tail touches that 15 line at any part "throw it on ice".

Re: 4 days out of Panacea

Great job getting a kid out and involved. My son is now 16 and still has fun catching ladyfish. To be honest, so do I.

Re: Scalloping......

St Marks is barren of scallops. None at all. A few people staying at the fish camp made the drive to Steinhatchee.

Fishing Line

Just looking for some input on fishing lines. I almost exclusively use braid when trout fishing on the flats. The reason for this is that the stretch with mono makes me have to make a big swinging hookset rather than a short forearm hookset with braid. I want to use mono but haven't found one that d...

Re: Crab Island

I've been there a few times with the family and just watch out for those you choose to anchor near if you have kids. It can get pretty ugly. I launched closer to Ft Walton.

Re: New proposed trout regulations

I disagree with not reducing the commercial harvest. COMPLETELY DISAGREE!!!!! As for myself, it wouldn't hurt my feelings if the did away with harvesting a plus 20 fish. It also wouldn't bother me if they closed the season in JAN and FEB. Too damn cold for me anyway. 5 fish down to 3 is a big move, ...

Re: St Marks boat accident

Very sad indeed. I admit I don't always wear mine but will think twice now. Few years ago I had a German Shepherd that would stand behind the console while under way and would constantly get his head tangled in the cord and unplug it. With that happening a couple of times a trip I stopped wearing it...
