Re: Father-son time on the water

That is a wonderful report - congrats on a good day on the water.

I'm newly returned after a long hiatus from Big Bend Fishing and quickly learned Red Beard is a treasure!

Will Rainy Weather Ever End?

Yes! Finally looking cooler and dryer on Thursday. I serviced my outboard this weekend while batting away mosquitos and will be ready to go!

Re: Panacea wading?

Go about half way down Bottoms Road and try the old seineyard on the left.

Re: East Point fishing

This is just me but I'd launch at the county ramp just west of Apalachicola (by the airport), net bait on the sand bar at the northeast corner of St. Vincent Island and then work the St. Vincent dry bar for Reds. After that move out West Pass for who knows what and then try for Trout on the backside...

OMG I am so sorry to read about Chris - and now it's evening and storms are coming through. I'm praying he is hanging on somewhere.

Re: Roseate Spoonbills

Thanks Red Beard. I was scouting boat ramps - it's been a long while since I frequented that side of the bay - and quite a coincidence that you were out on Bottoms Road too. I was impressed with the new-to-me ramp at Shell Point but I don't favor that general locale. The ramp at Spring Creek was tor...

Roseate Spoonbills

Has anyone been seeing Spoonbills in our area this summer? I was excited to see several feeding during low tide today today off of Bottoms Road (wish I were a better photographer)!

Re: NOAA's Port St. Joe tide times wrong?

Ed Ball got his way. Speaking of Ed Ball many years ago I toured his Southwood mansion southeast of Tallahassee where he had these huge mural paintings of half naked women being carried away on Arabian horseback. Very strange art collection. https://www.floridasmart.com/sites/default/files/articles/...

Re: First time, need some advice

My advice is to start slow, learn the different sides of Apalachee Bay then start venturing out to St. George Sound - the pass between Dog and St. George's Island, the St. Vincent dry bar, the Apalachicola distributaries and Lake Wimico are favorites. And stay away from the Rock Garden - I wrecked a...

Re: St. Marks River at Newport

What they say about the ramp times two, I would use the ramp at the old fort and enjoy more of the river.

Re: Lake Lafayette and Lake Jackson

This summer I've explored Lake Miccosukee, Lake Iamonia, Lake Talquin and Lake Seminole. I want to see more of Lake Seminole especially up Spring Creek and will try launching the boat in Chattahoochee to check out the upper Apalachicola. Lakes Lafayette and Jackson will have to wait for better condi...

Re: Dumb question time (Tucker Lake)

Chaires Creek has some deep cuts for sure, we wanted to see the Indian Mound Island but the last stretch to Tucker Lake too shallow for my boat. I was driven down to the lake one time but the swarm of mosquitoes was too much, worse mosquitos I have seen since one time in the inner bay at Cape Romano!
